Mega Venusaur EX -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Mega Venusaur EX Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mega Venusaur EX from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first Mega Evolution Pokemon card that I've ever reviewed and also the first Pokemon card that I've reviewed that has over 200 hp.  So, Mega Venusaur EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 230. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mega Venusaur does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Crisis Vine, this move requires three grass energy cards and one colorless energy card, for a total of four energy cards, and does 120 damage, plus your opponent's active Pokemon is paralyzed and poisoned.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
Before I start with the strategy, remember that this card is a Mega Evolution card and an EX card so if you use this card in your deck and it gets knocked out, your opponent gets to take two prize cards instead of one and when you evolve an EX card into its Mega Evolution, your turn ends, you cannot do anything else.  So knowing these things, you'll always want to use Mega Evolution cards with caution, but with that being said, if you are building a grass type deck that has many Pokemon that inflict special conditions on your opponent's Pokemon, this card is a must for that deck.  I could see myself using a 1-1 line of Venusaur EX and Mega Venusaur EX in a deck.  Of course you'll want to read yesterday's Venusaur EX review to know what I thought about that card, but you should definitely get Venusaur EX all set up on the bench and I would actually recommend moving Venusaur EX into the active Pokemon spot before evolving it into its Mega Evolution, that way when you evolve it, Mega Evolution Venusaur can take a lot more damage than other Pokemon so it won't be as big of deal not being able to attack the turn you evolve Venusaur.  Of course, when you get Mega Venusaur into the active Pokemon spot you can use Crisis Vine every single turn, and make sure to retreat Mega Venusaur before it is knocked out.  Other than that there isn't much strategy with this card or Venusaur EX, because both cards can just do very powerful attacks for a large amount of energy.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  Considering the fact that this is the first Mega Evolution card I have reviewed, I am going to give this card an average rating and then when I review Mega Blastoise EX I will have a better idea of just how good this card is.  But from the onset, this card doesn't look that spectacular but since it has such a high hp and can do 120 damage per turn, it should definitely be used in a grass type deck if you're building one.
