Black Kyurem EX Full Art -- Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Review

Black Kyurem EX Full Art Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Black Kyurem EX Full Art from the Boundaries Crossed Pokemon Card Set.  Black Kyurem EX is a basic, EX, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to dragon type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Black Kyurem EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Dragon Fang, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one lightning, and does 60 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.  Black Kyurem EX's second move is called Freeze Shock, this move requires four energy cards, two lightning, and one each of water and colorless, this move does 150 damage, however Kyurem can't attack the turn after it uses this move.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Black Kyurem EX is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  Just a reminder, since this card is an EX card, if this card is knocked out, your opponent will get to take two prize cards instead of one.  Like the Black Kyurem card from this set, the EX version is pretty slow, so you'll want to keep this card on your bench and attach four energy cards to it.  Make sure to use this card in a lightning and water type deck.  I would avoid putting this card in the active Pokemon spot at all costs before it has at least three energy cards on it.  As soon as you get four energy cards on Black Kyurem EX Full Art, move it to the active Pokemon spot and start attacking.  You'll want to use Freeze Shock whenever you can unless 60 damage will knock out the depending Pokemon, that way you'll be able to attack consecutive turns.  So essentially this card can do 75 damage per turn using Freeze Shock or 60 damage per turn using Dragon Fang.  I would only include 1 Black Kyurem EX in a deck because it can do major damage in one turn, but because it can only do 150 max damage in two turns I wouldn't include more than 1 in a deck.  Just another note, unlike Lv. X cards where you leveled Pokemon up, EX cards can be used as basic Pokemon, so you do not need to put Black Kyurem in the game first and evolve it into Black Kyurem EX.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average EX Pokemon card that I would fit well in any dual type deck out there that had lightning and water type Pokemon.  The only things I don't like about this card is that it is slow, has a high retreat cost, and that it can only attack every two turns when using its most powerful move.  Other than that, this card has a high hp, two good moves, and will definitely knock out Pokemon very quickly with 150 damage.

Kyurem changes into Black Kyurem when it takes energy from Zekrom.

By taking energy from Zekrom,
or in the game by using a DNA splicer while having zekrom in your party

The DNA splicer turns Zekrom into the Dark Stone and then Kyurem absorbs the stone and turns into Black Kyurem.

When you use the DNA Splicers on it and Zekrom, that will result in a fusion which removes Zekrom from the party and then Kyurem becomes Black Kyurem.

In the BW2 games, Kyurem fuses with Zekrom, turning into Black Kyurem. In the anime, Kyurem turns into Black Kyurem by borrowing Zekrom's powers.

"When the DNA Splicers is used on Kyurem, the tendrils on its back allow it to turn Zekrom and Reshiram into their respective Dragon Stones. After doing so, it can use Absofusion on the stone, turning itself into Black Kyurem or White Kyurem." So basicly by taking the dragon stone from zekrom it transforms into black kyurem.

to become black/white

Anime version: Kyurem changes form whenever it wants to.
Black2 and White2 version: You have the DNA splicers used on Kyurem while Zekrom is in your party and the two legendary pokemon fuse to get Black Kyurem.

Kyurem changes into Black Kyurem by using DNA splicers with Zekrom which will remove Zekrom and turn him into a Black Kyurem. Or in the anime Kyurem absorb Zekrom's powers than turn into a Black Kyruem

Congrats to Dennis for winning!

If you want Kyurem to become Black Kyurem, you need Zekrom, Kyurem and the DNA Splicers. You need to use the DNA Splicers from your Base instruments Section of the bag, first on Kyurem, then on Zekrom. Then Kyurem and Zekrom will fuse, and will become Black Kyurem.

You might want to re-check your review. Freeze Shock makes Black Kyurem EX unable to attack at all the next turn. Not unable to use it the next turn.
