Articuno EX Full Art -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Articuno EX Full Art Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Articuno EX Full Art from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Articuno is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Articuno EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Blizzard, this move requires three energy cards, two colorless and one water, and does 60 damage, plus this move does 10 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.  Articuno EX's second move is called Frost Prison, this move requires four energy cards, two each of water and colorless, and does 80 damage, plus if this card has any Plasma Energy cards attached to it the defending Pokemon is paralyzed.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Articuno EX is a basic Pokemon card you won't need to use any other cards with this card.  But remember, because this card is an EX card, if this card is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  Strategy-wise I wouldn't use more than one of these EX cards in a deck, I say this because Articuno's quickest move requires three energy cards, so this is a slow card to develop and actually play.  I would recommend keeping this card on your bench until you get three energy cards on it then moving it into the active Pokemon spot.  I would actually prefer using Blizzard every turn because it spreads damage to your opponent's benched Pokemon, because of this I would definitely include other Pokemon in the water type deck that spread damage so when you put Articuno EX into the active Pokemon spot later in the game most of your opponent's Pokemon have damage counters on them, so Articuno may be able to knock them out using Blizzard.  If many of the Pokemon in your deck require colorless energy, then I would put in 4 Plasma Energy cards and attach one to Articuno EX so that if you need to knock out a Pokemon by doing an 80 damage move to it you can use Frost Prison.  So, I would recommend using this card in almost any water type decks out there, but especially the ones that spread damage.

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.  This is definitely a card you'll want to have in your water type deck, I like its high hp, and both of its moves.  I especially like Blizzard's ability to damage your opponent's benched Pokemon.   One thing I would like to see from this card is that Frost Prison would do more damage, especially for four energy cards, but that is why I'm giving this card a 4 instead of a 5 because of this move only doing 80 damage.

I forgot to read the review yesterday, so I just readed it, for me Articuno-EX is the best water type Pokemon-EX card, this the perfect and a must card to include in a Water-type deck, especially when you have some Plasma Energies, paralyizing makes the defending Pokemon can't attack or even retreat, it can do nothing, so Articuno-EX won't receive any damage at all, except if you don't have any Plasma Energy, so for me this card has a perfect rating of 5/5.
