Charizard EX -- Flashfire Pokemon Card Review

Charizard EX Flashfire Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Charizard EX from the Flashfire Pokemon card set.  This is the second Charizard EX card I have reviewed from this set and this EX card is only available in regular EX form, not in Full Art form.  Charizard EX is a basic, EX, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Charizard does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Wing Attack, this move requires three colorless energy cards and does 60 damage.  Charizard EX's second move is called Combustion Blast, this move requires four energy cards, two each of fire and colorless, and does 150 damage, however, Charizard cannot use this move two turns in a row.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Charizard EX is a basic Pokemon card you won't need to use any other cards with this card.  But remember, because this card is an EX card, if this card is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  So knowing this and looking at the two moves on Charizard and seeing that they require at least three energy cards to use, I would limit myself to using only one of these cards in a deck.  I would try and set up Charizard EX on the bench, get at least three energy cards on it, then move it to the active Pokemon spot.  I would use Combustion Blast every turn I could to do the most damage, however if you can knock out the defending Pokemon by doing 60 damage or less make sure to use Wing Attack so you can save Combustion Blast for the next Pokemon you'll face.  Comparing the two Charizard EX cards from this set, I like yesterday's card a little better because it can do 120 damage every turn, but both Charizard EX cards are good and both could be used in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average EX Pokemon card from the Flashfire set.  I like that this card has two moves that do major damage.  As soon as you get time to get this card set up and then into the active Pokemon position, this card won't disappoint, which is why I'm giving it an above average rating.  However, Wing Attack is a pretty average move and since you can only use Combustion Blast every other turn this card isn't as powerful as the other Charizard EX card in this set.

This Charizard-EX is actually superior to yesterday's. Charizard-EX 11 Stoke attack could charge you up, but it's unreliable because of the coin flip, and it can't one-shot an EX with Power Blast.
The Charizards already have Blacksmith and Fiery Torch so they wouldn't need Stoke. Charizard-EX 12's first attack is terrible, but Combustion Blast can one-shot anything good (except M Kangaskahn-EX) with a Muscle Band and/ or Hypnotoxic Laser. The ability to one-shot makes this card better. You can also get past the drawback using a Keldeo-EX with a Float Stone.
