Venusaur EX Full Art -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Vensusaur EX Full Art X and Y Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Venusaur EX from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  This is the first card in the Pokemon XY set and today is the official release date for this set in the United States.  Venusaur EX Full Art is a basic, EX, grass type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to fire type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Venusaur does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Poison Powder, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage.  Besides the damage, Poison Powder also poisons the defending Pokemon.  Venusaur EX's second move is called Jungle Hammer, this move requires four energy cards, two grass and two colorless, and does 90 and also heals 30 damage from Venusaur.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
Before I start with the strategy, remember that this card is 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.  Also, the X and Y set is the first set to have Mega Evolution cards, so you should definitely read tomorrow's review to know if you should be using this Venusaur EX card with its Mega Evolution card.  But since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I will act as though I plan on using this card on its own in a deck.  Like most EX cards, this card is pretty slow on the attack so you'll want to set it up on the bench.  This card is a basic Pokemon card so you only need this card in your deck to use it, I would put at least three energy cards on Venusaur EX before moving it to the active Pokemon spot and then use whichever move you have the energy for.  This card would work well in a deck that has a lot of Pokemon that inflict special conditions, that way Poison Powder would cause your opponent even more stress since so many of your Pokemon can inflict Poison.  This card like I mentioned is slow and has a high retreat cost, so I would only include one in a grass type deck, but because it does have 180 hp and Jungle Hammer heals damage from Venusaur, this card should not get knocked out for quite some time in the active Pokemon spot.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average to slightly above average EX card from the X and Y set.  One of these cards would fit in perfectly in a grass type deck, and if you have this card in your deck it will inflict major damage on your opponent's Pokemon.  This card gets an above average rating from me because both of the moves Venusaur has not only do above average damage but does something extra.  The retreat cost on this card is quite high, so that is definitely something to watch out for, but hopefully once you get this card in the active Pokemon spot you will never have to retreat it.
