Kyurem EX -- Next Destinies Set Pokemon Card Review

Kyurem EX Next Destinies Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kyurem EX from the Next Destinies set. This is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Kyurem EX doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Frozen Wings which takes three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 60 damage and lets you remove a special energy card from the defending Pokemon if they have one attached. Kyurem's second move is called Hail Blizzard and for four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, it does 120 damage, however Hail Blizzard can't be used two turns in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is an EX card you're going to want to set this card up on your bench before putting it in the active Pokemon spot, because you don't want to get any damage on it prematurely and not be able to utilize an EX card to its full potential. Once you have four energy cards attached to Kyurem, it is extremely straightforward, I would use Hail Blizzard first then use Frozen Wings second since you're forced to. Depending on the point in the game, you'll have to decide if you can let Kyurem get knocked out or if you should retreat it. This is a very powerful card to have in any water type deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. This is an extremely powerful EX Pokemon card, not as powerful as Reshiram EX, so that's why I am giving it a 4 out of 5 rating. This card can basically do 90 damage every turn, which is amazing, and is a must have in any water type deck you would consider building.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Kyurem EX from the Next Destinies set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Zapdos from the same set.
