Moltres EX -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Moltres EX Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Moltres EX from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Moltres is a basic, EX, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Moltres EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move it has is called Destructive Flame, this move requires two energy cards, one each of fire and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin you may discard an energy card attached to the defending Pokemon.  Moltres's second move is called Power Flame, this move requires four energy cards, two each of fire and colorless, and does 80 damage plus 40 more damage if Moltres EX has any Plasma Energy cards attached to it.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Moltres 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.  Right off the bat, whatever deck you have this card in you'll want to include 4 Plasma Energy cards in it so that Moltres's Power Flame move will do 120 damage per turn.  Even if you don't attach a Plasma Energy card to Moltres, the energy cards themselves still provide one colorless energy card so other Pokemon can use these cards too if their moves require colorless energy.  Personally, I would prefer to keep Moltres EX on the bench until it had four energy cards on it, two fire, one whatever, and one Plasma Energy, and then move it into the active Pokemon spot and use Power Flame every turn doing 120 damage.  Even if you want to move Moltres EX into the active Pokemon spot immediately, it should last quite awhile because you'll be able to use Destructive Flame for two energy cards and hopefully discard some of your opponent's energy so it can't attack, plus with 170 hp, Moltres will last quite awhile anyway.  Because Moltres EX requires four energy cards to attack and requires Plasma Energy at that, I would only include one of these cards in a fire type deck.

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.  It has a very solid hp, surprisingly low retreat cost, one okay move, and one awesome move.  You really can't go wrong by using this card in your deck, because as soon as you get four energy cards on Moltres, your opponent better watch out!
