Venusaur ex -- EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card Review

Venusaur EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Venusaur ex from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to both fire and psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Venusaur's Poke-Power called Energy Trans says that as often as you like during your turn you may move a grass energy card attached from one of your Pokemon to another. Besides the Poke-Power, Venusaur has two moves, the first move is called Pollen Hazard which does 20 damage for three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, and makes the defending Pokemon poisoned, burned, and confused. Venusaur's second move is called Solarbeam which takes five energy cards, three grass and two colorless, and does 90 damage.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
You don't often see Pokemon cards that can not only do damage with a move but also inflict three special conditions with that same move. So if you could somehow play this card I would recommend using Pollen Hazard first and then Solarbeam the next turn. I really like the artwork on this card, I like how it makes Venusaur look monstrous, which it is, and I also like how it looks like Venusaur is gathering sunlight for its Solarbeam move. I do have this card in my collection and I know I pulled it out of a pack when I was opening EX FireRed and LeafGreen packs when they first came out.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $20, on Professor-Oak it sells for $32.41 and $52.49 on PokeOrder.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Blastoise, Charizard, Clefable, Electrode, Gengar, Gyarados, Mr. Mime x2, Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos.
