Sceptile ex -- EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua Pokemon Card Review

Sceptile ex Pokemon Card EX Team Aqua vs. Team Magma SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Sceptile ex from the EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to both fire and grass type Pokemon, a -30 resistance to water type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Sceptile has three moves, the first move is called Green Heal and for one grass energy card you may remove 4 damage counters that have at least one grass energy card attached to them. Sceptile's second move is called Poison Ring which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, and does 40 damage and makes the defending Pokemon poisoned and unable to retreat until after their next turn. Sceptile's third and final move is called Slashing Strike which takes five energy cards, three colorless and two grass and does 100 damage. However Sceptile can't use this move two turns in a row.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
I like that this card has a plethora of moves to choose from, these moves can inflict massive damage, poison Pokemon, and heal your own Pokemon. If you have patience with this card you can really do some damage using Slashing Strike one turn, then healing all your grass Pokemon the next turn with Green Heal. The artwork on this card which is done by Hikaru Koike is interesting. I really like th background and how part of Sceptile's body blends right into it, but I don't like how Sceptile looks, it looks extremely confused and not powerful or intimidating at all. I don't think I have this ex card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $10, isn't sold on Professor-Oak and $56.99 on PokeOrder.

Its a good card, like the moves, restricted on the final move but if used well can cause serious damage
