Terrakion EX -- Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Review

Terrakion EX Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Terrakion EX from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set.  Terrakion EX is a basic, EX, fighting type Pokemon card, with an hp of 180.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Terrakion EX does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move is called Rock Tumble and for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, this move does 50 damage.  Terrakion's second move is called Pump-up Smash and for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, this move does 90 damage and allows you to attach 2 energy cards from your hand to your benched Pokemon in any way you like.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is an EX Pokemon card you'll have to remember that if this card is knocked out your opponent will get to take two prize cards instead of one.  With that being said, I would recommend keeping Terrakion EX on the bench until you have three energy cards on it and then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Pump-up Smash every turn.  I would make sure to include this card in a deck that includes many supporters that allows you to get many energy cards into your hand, that way when you use Pump-up Smash you can always attach energy cards to your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very good EX Pokemon card, it has an extremely high hp, and two good moves that do a good amount of damage.  I especially like how Pump-up Smash benefits your benched Pokemon and allows them to be ready to be moved to the active Pokemon spot that much quicker.  So if you're using a fighting type deck I would definitely recommend using this card in that deck.
