Dialga EX Full Art -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Dialga EX Full Art Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dialga EX Full Art from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Dialga 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 two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Dialga EX does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Reverse Edge, this move requires three energy cards, one each of metal, psychic, and colorless, and does 50 damage, plus if you get a heads when you flip a coin, you can move a card from your discard pile into your hand.  Dialga's second move is called Fast Forward, this move requires four colorless energy cards and does 90 damage plus for each Plasma Energy card attached to this Pokemon you may remove a card from the top of your opponent's deck.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Dialga 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.  Another thing to note about this card is that even though it is a dragon type card it requires psychic and metal type energy cards to attack if you want to use Reverse Edge, otherwise Dialga can use any type of energy cards.  If you do use this card in your deck, you'll want to set this card up on your bench to get plenty of energy cards on it before moving it into the active Pokemon to attack.  If you use this card, I wouldn't use more than one in a deck, but it would be a deck that is heavy in Team Plasma Pokemon so you're going to have Team Plasma energy cards to use on those Pokemon and this Dialga EX Full Art card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average EX Pokemon card from the Plasma Blast set.  I like that this card has a high hp, low retreat costs, and two moves that both do additional things besides damage.  Unfortunately neither of the moves on this card are that great so that is why I'm giving it just an average rating.  So if you're building a Team Plasma type deck, this is definitely an EX card to consider, otherwise it really isn't that great.

Prior to Plasma Blast, the last set to include both Dialga and Palkia as Ultra Rares was Call of Legends, where they both appeared as Shiny Rare Holo cards.
