Rocket’s Articuno ex – EX Team Rocket Returns Pokemon Card Review

Rocket’s Articuno EX Team Rocket Returns Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rocket’s Articuno ex from the EX Team Rocket Returns set. This is a basic, dark type Pokemon card, with an hp of 100. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Articuno’s Poke-Body is called Darkness Veil and says that as long as Articuno has a darkness energy card attached to it, all effects of an attack on Articuno are prevented besides damage. Besides the Poke-Body, Articuno has two moves, the first move is called Freeze Solid which does 10 damage for one colorless energy card, and when you use this move you can search your discard pile for one water energy card and attach it to Articuno. Articuno’s second move is called Ice Wing which does 50 damage for three energy cards, two water and one colorless.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
I really like all the artwork on the ex cards from this set. I like the dark tones and how menacing all of the Pokemon look in their pictures. One thing you’ll have to be aware of if you are trying to use this card is that even though it is dark type, it doesn’t require any darkness energy cards to attack unless you want to attach one to use its Poke-Body. I do have this card in my collection but I like these cards so much it makes me want to go out and buy another ex Team Rocket Returns booster box. Move-wise, this card isn’t the greatest, neither of its moves can do much but at least the card is somewhat quick if you use Freeze Solid first you will be able to use Ice Wing in two turns instead of three.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $16, on Professor-Oak it sells for $27.56 and $24.99 on PokeOrder.
