Palkia EX Full Art -- Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Review

Palkia EX Full Art Plasma Blast Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Palkia EX Full Art from the Plasma Blast Pokemon Card Set.  Palkia 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.  Palkia EX does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move this card has is called Strafe, the move requires three colorless energy cards, and does 50 damage, plus you may choose to move Palkia EX from the active Pokemon spot to your bench.  Palkia's second move is called Dimension Heal, this move requires four energy cards, one grass, one water, and two colorless, and does 80 damage plus heals 20 damage for each Team Plasma energy card attached to Palkia.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Palkia 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 grass and water type energy cards to attack if you want to use Dimension Heal, otherwise Palkia can use any type of energy cards.  This card, just like Dialga EX Full Art from yesterday requires a lot of energy cards to attack and also benefits from Team Plasma energy cards.  So you'll want to set this card up on your bench and use this card in a Team Plasma type deck.  However, unlike Dialga from yesterday, if you want to use this card with Team Plasma energy cards, you're going to have to put this card into a dual type deck that includes water and grass type Pokemon cards.  So if I were building a dual type deck, I would put one of these EX cards in the deck, I would put four energy cards on this card on the bench and in the active Pokemon spot I would use Dimension Heal every turn.

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.  This card is pretty similar to Dialga EX Full Art from yesterday but I like that card better.  This card requires too many different types of energy cards to be that great, so if you're not looking for a specific card for a specific deck, this EX card isn't for you.
