Regigigas EX -- Next Destinies Set Pokemon Card Review

Regigigas EX Next Destinies Pokemon CardPokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Regigigas EX from the Next Destinies set. This is a basic, EX, colorless type Pokemon card, with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost. Regigigas EX doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called Giga Drain and for three colorless energy cards Regigigas does 60 damage, you may choose to do 20 more damage when using this move but if you do you must do 20 damage to Regigigas. Regigigas's second move is called Raging Hammer and for four colorless energy cards it does 50 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on Regigigas.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, it may actually work out better to put Regigigas EX in the active Pokemon spot as soon as possible, that way it can get some damage on it so Raging Hammer will be extremely powerful. At full potential this move can do 220 damage. In the meantime, you can use Giga Drain and do the extra 20 damage to get some extra damage on Regigigas.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. Even though this card has one extremely powerful move, I still am going to rate this card as average. This card is pretty slow and its retreat is expensive, plus this card really can't do a lot of damage until it gets some damage on it, and by that time it may be too late.

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

I would say that regigigas ex is a good and strong card, and would be good in decks that lower the cost of energies
