Vileplume ex – EX Hidden Legends Pokemon Card Review

Vileplume ex Pokemon Card EX Hidden Legends SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Vileplume ex from the EX Hidden Legends set. This is a stage 2, grass type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Vileplume’s Poke-Body is called Block Dust which says that as long as Vileplume is your active Pokemon your opponent can’t play any trainer cards. Besides the Poke-Body, Vileplume has one move called Special Formula which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one grass, and does 50 damage. Besides doing the damage, you may flip a coin when executing this move, if you get a heads, the defending Pokemon is put to sleep and poisoned, if you get a tails, the defending Pokemon is confused.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
Even though I really liked the ex designs of the three Regi’s, it is nice to get back to the familiar bubble pattern on the ex cards. The artwork is pretty simple on this card and I like the simplicity of it with the solid green background behind Vileplume. Ryo Ueda did a very well job on this card. Battle wise, this card would be perfect in a deck that annoys the defending player, throw this card in with other cards that inflict special conditions and your opponent will be begging you to ease up on them within a few minutes of play.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $6, on Professor-Oak it sells for $15.32 and $18.74 on PokeOrder.

Other ex Pokemon Cards in this set:
The other ex cards from this set are: Groudon, Kyogre, Metagross, Ninetales, Regice, Regirock, Registeel, and Wigglytuff.
