Mega Blastoise EX -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Mega Blastoise EX Pokemon X and Y
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mega Blastoise EX from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Mega Blastoise EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 220. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mega Blastoise does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Hydro Bombard, this move requires three water energy cards and does 120 damage plus 30 damage to 2 of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

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 water type deck I would definitely recommend putting in 1 each of Blastoise EX and Mega Blastoise EX.  Blastoise EX isn't the greatest of EX cards so I would make sure and set up this line on the bench, evolve Blastoise into its mega evolution then get three water energy cards on it.  When in the active Pokemon spot you're only choice is to use Hydro Bombard every single turn.  This card would fit perfectly in a spread damage type deck, either a dual type deck or a single type deck.  Look for other water Pokemon cards that spread damage around, cards that have moves like Surf which not only attack the defending Pokemon but do 10 damage to all your opponent's Pokemon. 

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  This card is definitely one of the most powerful Pokemon cards that I've ever reviewed and it is only my 2nd mega evolution card at that.  The reason this card doesn't get a 5 from me is that the card only has one move, but the one move it does has is very powerful and can not only do above average damage to the opposing Pokemon in the active spot, but it can destroy most benched Pokemon in two turns.  So if you're building a water type deck, I would definitely recommend using this EX line, overall I would give the line a 4 out of 5 rating, your deck will be awesome with this line in it.
