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

Rocket’s Entei EX Team Rocket Returns Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rocket’s Entei 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 water type Pokemon, no resistance type and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Articuno’s Poke-Body is called Dark Condition and says that as long as Entei has a darkness energy card attached to it, Entei has no weaknesses. Besides the Poke-Body, Articuno has two moves, the first move is called Energy Link which does 10 damage for one colorless energy card and allows you to search your discard pile for an energy card and attach it to Entei. Entei’s second move is called Volcanic Ash and for three energy cards, one colorless and two fire, it does 60 damage to one of your opponent’s Pokemon that you choose. However before you can use this move you must discard two energy cards attached to Entei.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
Overall, this card is pretty similar to the Articuno ex card I reviewed yesterday, both its Poke-Body and first moves are quite similar and this card is also a dark type card but doesn’t require any darkness type energy cards to attack. This is the way all the ex cards from this set will operate. Strategy-wise, if you were to use this card you’d want to put it in a fire type deck and try to have spread damage type cards in the deck so you could put Entei in and use Volcanic Ash and hopefully knock out one of your opponent’s benched Pokemon that has some previous damage on it. I have this card in my collection, I have two or three of these to be exact. I like the artwork on this card but not as much as others from this set.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $20, on Professor-Oak it sells for $25 and $34.99 on PokeOrder.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Rocket’s Articuno, Rocket’s Hitmonchan, Rocket’s Mewtwo, Rocket’s Moltres, Rocket’s Scizor, Rocket’s Scyther, Rocket’s Sneasel, Rocket’s Snorlax, Rocket’s Suicune, Rocket’s Zapdos.
