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

Rocket’s Scizor EX Team Rocket Returns Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rocket’s Scizor ex from the EX Team Rocket Returns set. This is a stage 1, dark type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to grass type Pokemon and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Scizor’s Poke-Body is called Dual Armor and says that as long as Scizor has any metal energy cards attached to it is both metal and darkness type. Besides the Poke-Body, Scizor has just one move called Rotating Claws and for three colorless energy cards does 50 damage. Also you may discard an energy card attached to Scizor ex and search your discard pile for a different energy card and attach it to Scizor.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This is the first stage 1 ex card that I’ve reviewed from this set and it is a bit better than the basic ones I’ve been reviewing. First off I’d like to point out the importance of having this card be two types, that way you can be twice as strong against double the amount of Pokemon, so I would use Rotating Claws and discard a grass energy card attached to Scizor and switch it with a metal energy card if I could. I’ll be reviewing Scyther ex tomorrow so you’ll know why you’d have a grass energy card attached to this card tomorrow. Other than getting the necessary energy types on Scizor you’ll just want to use Rotating Claws every turn you can. I like the artwork on this card but not as much as some others from this set, Scizor is drawn at a weird angle but I like the icicle type background colors making Scizor look extremely tough for being in a frozen cave or something like that. I do have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $13, on Professor-Oak it sells for $15 and $37.49 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 Mewtwo, Rocket’s Moltres, Rocket’s Scyther, Rocket’s Sneasel, Rocket’s Snorlax, Rocket’s Suicune, Rocket’s Zapdos.
