Blastoise EX Full Art -- Pokemon X and Y Review

Blastoise EX Full Art Pokemon X and Y
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Blastoise EX from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Blastoise EX Full Art is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Blastoise does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Rapid Spin, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage and not only must you switch Blastoise EX with one of your benched Pokemon, but your opponent must do that same.  Blastoise's second move is called Splash Bomb, this move requires three water energy cards and does 120 damage, however if you get a tails when you flip a coin, Blastoise does 30 damage to itself.

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 this Blastoise card does have a Mega evolution which I'll be reviewing tomorrow and should probably be used with this 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.  The reason most people use EX cards is for their power and high hp, and this Blastoise card definitely doesn't disappoint, so if you're building a water type deck, I would definitely consider using one of these in that deck, I would get three water energy cards on Blastoise on the bench and then use Splash Bomb every turn you can in the active Pokemon spot.  I wouldn't use Rapid Spin until Blastoise is about to feint and then instead of retreating use this move instead.

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 X and Y set.  Even though this card has 180 hp and can do 120 damage per turn, this is just an average card in my opinion because the first move Blastoise has isn't that great and really can only be used once, and Splash Bomb does a good amount of damage but 30 damage can add up quickly on Blastoise.  So, if you want powerful cards in your water type deck, this card would definitely fit that bill, but it definitely isn't that great.

So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Blastoise EX from the X and Y set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of the Mega Evolution of Blastoise EX, which is from this same set. Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
