Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rayquaza from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon Card Set. This is a secret rare card in the set, and the Rayquaza on the card is the shiny version. This is the last card I'll be reviewing from the Dragons Exalted set, I've reviewed all the Pokemon cards from the set, so tomorrow I'll start reviewing Boundaries Crossed Pokemon cards. Rayquaza is a basic, dragon type Pokemon card, with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost. Rayquaza does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves. The first move it has is called Dragon Pulse and for one electric energy card this move does 40 damage, however after using this move you must discard the top two cards from your deck. Rayquaza's second move is called Shred and for three energy cards, one each of fire, electric, and colorless, this move does 90 damage. This move is not affected by anything.
Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since this is a basic Pokemon card with no evolutions, you only need to include this card in the deck if you want to use it. Even though this card is a dragon type Pokemon card, it does require fire and electric energy cards, so if you have a deck with those cards, this card would fit in perfectly. I would not use more than 1 or 2 of these cards in a deck. I would prefer to use Shred every turn, not only because it does way more damage but because you don't have to discard any of your cards after using the move. This card would be an amazing starter Pokemon card, since it can do 40 damage for one energy card, so if you get this card into the active Pokemon spot very early in the game, this card can do a ton of damage just using Dragon Pulse, but just be careful so that later in the game you don't run out of cards in your deck.
Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating. In my opinion, this is a slightly above average basic Pokemon card from the Dragons Exalted Pokemon card set. I like how this card has an above average hp, and two great moves plus this card looks really cool too! Like I mentioned in the strategy section of this review, Rayquaza's two moves compliment each other very nicely and make this card an unbelievable starter Pokemon. I highly recommend this card for any deck.
