Zapdos ex – EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card Review

Zapdos EX FireRed and LeafGreen Pokemon Card SetPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zapdos ex from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set. This is the third and final of the three legendary birds from this set and the last ex card from the EX FireRed and LeafGreen set. Zapdos is a basic, electric type Pokemon card, with an hp of 110. It has a x2 weakness to electric type Pokemon, no resistance type and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Zados's Poke-Power is the same as both Moltres's and Articuno's and is called Legendary Ascent and says that when you place Zapdos ex from your hand to your bench you may switch it with your active Pokemon for free and move any electric energy cards attached to your active Pokemon to Zapdos. Besides the Poke-Power, Zapdos has one move called Electron Crush which takes three energy cards, two electric and one colorless, and does 50 damage plus 20 more damage if you choose to discard an energy card from Zapdos.

PrimetimePokemon's Take:
For the third time, I really like the artwork of this card and how the ex pattern is reflected over the entirety of the card. I also like the dark look Zapdos has in the picture of the card. This card is very similar to the other two legendary bird ex cards I have reviewed. After reviewing all three, I have come to the conclusion that all three of the ex cards would have been great in battle and I would have included them in any deck I made with their respected types. I do have this ex card in my collection and I am very happy to have all three legendary birds from this set in my collection.

Pokemon Card Price:
This card sells on eBay for around $8, on Professor-Oak it sells for $15.30 and $44.99 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, Venusaur, Articuno, and Moltres.
