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

Swampert ex Pokemon Card EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Swampert ex from the EX Team Magma vs. Team Aqua set. This is a stage 2, fighting type Pokemon, with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Swampert doesn't have a Poke-Body or Poke-Power but it does have two moves, the first move is called Hyper Pump which takes one colorless energy card and does 20 damage plus 20 more damage for each energy card attached to Swampert not used for this attack. Swampert's second move is called Crushing Wave which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 40 damage to one of your opponent's Pokemon, whichever one you choose. Besides doing the damage you may flip a coin and if you get a heads the Pokemon you attacked must discard any energy card.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
This card, just like the Sceptile ex card annoys me. Both of these cards make the Pokemon look extremely dumbfounded and confused. I don't know why the artist would make the Pokemon look like that. Another strange thing about this card is that it is a fighting type card but it doesn't require any fighting type energy cards to attack. Overall this card isn't bad it can do spread damage and can do a fair amount of damage without having to discard any energy cards. I do have this card in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $5, on Professor-Oak it sells for $26.33 and $28.49 on PokeOrder.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Blaziken, Cradily, Entei, Raikou, Sceptile, and Suicune.
