Mew EX -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Mew EX Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mew EX from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Mew is a basic, EX, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120.  It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mew's Ability is called Versatile and says that Mew can use any attack of any Pokemon in play, you just have to match the energy card cost for that move.  Besides the Ability, Mew EX has one move called Replace which requires one psychic energy card and allows you to move any of the energy cards you have attached to any of your Pokemon in any way you like.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, Mew EX really reminds me of Ditto, it can use any move from any other Pokemon, but Mew EX is better than Ditto because in addition to using any move it likes, it can move energy from one of your Pokemon to another very quickly.  So strategy wise, since Mew EX is an EX Pokemon card, you'll have to remember that if this card gets knocked out your opponent will get to take two prize cards instead of one, but that shouldn't be a problem since Mew EX can retreat for only one energy card.  I would probably keep Mew EX on the bench, and move it into the active Pokemon spot to either use one of your Pokemon's great moves right away, or more than likely to use Replace for a turn, move many of your energy cards in play to one Pokemon and then retreat Mew EX the next turn and put in that Pokemon you just moved all the energy cards to, that way you can attack immediately with that Pokemon, regardless if it requires 4 or 5 energy cards and you didn't have any energy cards attached to it the previous turn.  I would include in a deck that has Mew EX, many Pokemon that have powerful attacks and require good amounts of energy cards to attack, that way you can do a ton of damage with the aid of Mew with any card in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  Even though this card can't explicitly do a stated amount of damage, I still am going to give this card an above average rating because it can greatly increase the power and quickness of your deck, and since Mew EX only has a one energy card retreat cost, there should be no reason why Mew EX can't help your deck since it can go into the active Pokemon spot and attack one turn and retreat the next very easily.
