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

Rocket’s Moltres EX Team Rocket Returns Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rocket’s Moltres 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 two colorless energy card retreat cost. Moltres’s Poke-Body is called Dark Lift and it says that if Moltres has any darkness energy cards attached to it, the retreat cost of Moltres is free. Besides the Poke-Body, Moltres has two moves, the first move is called Fire Dance and for two energy cards, one fire and one colorless, it does 30 damage and allows you to search your discard pile for a fire energy card and attach it to one of your Pokemon. Moltres’s second move is called Combustion which does 50 damage for three energy cards, two fire and one colorless.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This is one of the weaker ex cards I’ve reviewed from this set so far, it can’t do much for damage, but this is one time I would definitely consider attaching a darkness energy card to Moltres so you could retreat it at will, I would just keep this card on my bench and have two energy cards attached to it, one fire and one darkness, and then if one of my Pokemon gets knocked out, put Moltres in, use Fire Dance once, attach an energy card with this move to one of my benched Pokemon, and the next turn retreat Moltres for one of my benched Pokemon. Once again I like the artwork of this card, I like how sizzling Moltres looks and the red and yellow colors of the red-hot flames coming off of Moltres. The background colors of green, yellow, and black make Moltres look even more magnificent and makes the card that much cooler. Unfortunately I don’t have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $15, on Professor-Oak it sells for $15 and $26.24 on PokeOrder.
