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

Rocket’s Mewtwo EX Team Rocket Returns Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rocket’s Mewtwo 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 psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Mewtwo doesn’t have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have three moves, the first move is called Darkness Switch which takes one psychic energy card and says that you must discard an energy card when using this move, once you discard the energy card you may switch all the damage counters on Mewtwo with the defending Pokemon. Mewtwo’s second move is called Hypnoblast which takes three energy cards, one psychic and two colorless, and does 40 damage and if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is asleep. Mewtwo’s third move is called Psyburn and for four energy cards, three colorless and one psychic does 70 damage.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This is the first ex card from this set that doesn’t have a one colorless energy card retreat cost, but it is also the first card from this set to have three moves. All three moves Mewtwo has are pretty good but the card is a little slow at first unless you have a ton of damage on Mewtwo and want to use Darkness Switch to remove the energy from Metwo, but if you do use this move you have to discard an energy card which will make Mewtwo slower yet. I do like that this card requires mostly colorless energy cards so you can mix this card easily into any deck and once you get four energy cards on Mewtwo it can consistently do 70 damage every turn. The only bad thing about this card is that it has a fairly low hp for being slow and if this card gets knocked out the opponent will get to take two prize cards instead of one. This is another amazing looking ex card in my opinion. I really like the colors and the swirls of the background of the picture and this card would have definitely been in my top 10 favorite ex card video if I had it in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $30, on Professor-Oak it sells for $30.64 and is $64.99 on PokeOrder.

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