Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Entei EX from the Dark Explorers set. This is an EX card from the brand new, yet to be released Dark Explorers Pokemon card set. Entei EX is a basic, fire type Pokemon card, with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Just like Kyogre EX from yesterday, Entei EX doesn't have an Ability but has two moves, the first move is called Fire Fang and requires two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless and does 30 damage plus burns the defending Pokemon. Entei EX's other move is called Grand Flame which takes three energy cards, two fire and one colorless and does 90 damage and allows you to move one of your fire energy cards from your discard pile onto one of your benched Pokemon.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is an EX Pokemon card you'll have to know that if this card gets knocked out it will give your opponent two prize cards instead of one, with that being said, like Kyogre EX from yesterday, I wouldn't use Fire Fang much on this card unless I only had two energy cards on Entei EX, this card isn't a half bad starter card because it has such a high hp that even if you can't attack for two turns Fire Fang will definitely make up for it. I would couple this Entei EX card with another fire type Pokemon card that discards energy cards when it attacks, that way when you're using Entei EX you'll know you'll have plenty of fire energy cards to move back from your discard pile to your benched Pokemon when using Grand Flame.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating. This EX card is going to get another average rating from me, I actually like this card a bit better than yesterday's Kyogre EX but neither card is very special, both are very average. I think Fire Fang is somewhat useful, but I would only use it if the defending Pokemon has more than 180 hp, because if they don't Grand Flame will knock them out in two moves for sure. Even though I am giving this an average rating, it is a definite boost for any fire type deck and should definitely be considered for any fire type deck out there.
