Xerneas -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Xerneas Pokemon X and Y Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Xerneas from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Xerneas is a basic, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Xerneas does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Geomancy, this move requires one fairy type energy card and allows you to choose to of your benched Pokemon and search your deck for a fairy type energy card that you can attach to each of them.  Xerneas's second move is called Rainbow Spear, this move requires three energy cards, two fairy and one colorless and does 100 damage, however after using this move you must discard all energy cards attached to Xerneas.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Xerneas is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, if you're building a fairy type deck I probably wouldn't use this card at all, and if I did, I would only use one instance of this card.  I say this because Rainbow Spear uses too many energy cards too quickly so it isn't that useful, and you can't stack up energy cards on Xerneas because Rainbow Spear discards everything.  I would actually use Geomancy to set up my other Pokemon over Rainbow Spear.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  Besides having an excellent hp and a move that does 100 damage, I wouldn't use this card in a deck because it just isn't effective with the amount of energy required with this card.  You're definitely better off finding a different basic fairy type Pokemon to use in your deck.

I'm going with Yveltal based on comments you made upon card's based upon your liked cards. It seems pretty evident that if you Like Yveltal EX than you like his non-EX form as well.

Yveltal isn't really over-hyped, Charizard EX is.

It seems like the most logical choice, I could be wrong though.

Just basing it upon experience but the fact that most fairy decks run Prism or Rainbow energy makes it vulnerable to enhanced hammer.

I honestly haven't heard of any use of it in the meta-game, assuming your referring to the Regular Version. But eh, fairy decks just seem to manipulate their Signature Stadium and Aromattise. With Lysandre in game this poses a huge threat.

Are you kidding me? This is a great card for your deck to have! Fairy is actually a good deck and with Xerneas and Aromatisse you're able to set up an Xerneas EX X Blast turn 2! This card should be a 4 out of 5 rating!

You can see that ptp is not good at playint the tcg. This card is great. 100 damage for a 1 energy discard is grreat. Some pokemon have to diacard 1 for maybe 70/80/90 damage, or discard 2 for 60!!! Geomancy is one of the best energy moves to use on the first turn, it has a great synergy with aromatisse, and 130 HP IS GREAT!!!! Sure, some ex cardw have 170 hp but this card only gives up ONE PRIZE. And some cards may have 140hp but they are slow stage 2 cards! This is a BASIC!!!! 2 retreat is also not bad and you can ignore the retreat cost with fairy garden. Resistance to dark is great too, an weakness to steel? Well, steel isn't played thas much. So EVERYONE WITH A FAIRY DECK: PLAY AT LEAST 2-3 XERNEAS IN YOUR DECK!!!! THIS IS THE BEST FAIRY POKEMON THAT YOU CAN START WITH!!!!
