Black Kyurem EX -- Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Review

Black Kyurem EX Plasma Storm Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Black Kyurem EX from the Plasma Storm Pokemon Card Set.  Black Kyurem 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 Slash, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage.  Black Kyurem's second move is called Black Ballista, this move requires four energy cards, two water, one lightning, and one colorless, and does 200 damage, after attacking however you must discard three energy cards attached to Black Kyurem EX.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Black Kyurem 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.  This is an EX Pokemon card with one of the most powerful attacks I have ever seen.  So to best utilize Black Ballista, you'll want to put this card in a dual type deck that includes lightning and water energy cards.  I would keep this Pokemon on the bench and attach as many energy cards to this Pokemon as possible, I would even consider attaching 7 energy cards to this card.  I would save this card until the end of the game, put it in the active Pokemon spot, and use Black Ballista as many times as you can in a row to one hit KO your opponent's Pokemon and hopefully win the game.  Other than that, Slash is an average move but only requires colorless energy cards so regardless of the energy cards you get in your hand you can attach them to Black Kyurem and use that move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average EX Pokemon card.  Even though this card can do 200 damage in one turn and knock out the defending Pokemon for sure, I am giving this card an average rating because after using Black Ballista one turn, it is more than likely going to be a few turns before you can use it again, and by that time Black Kyurem may get knocked out, or it may not be able to attack for a few turns because it doesn't have enough energy on it and it can't retreat.  However, if you're looking for that one Pokemon card that can knock out any Pokemon in the TCG in one turn, this is your card and definitely should be included in your deck.
