Dragonite EX Full Art -- Furious Fists Pokemon Card Review

Dragonite EX Full Art Furious Fists Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragonite EX and Dragonite EX Full Art from the Furious Fists Pokemon Card Set.  Dragonite EX is a basic, EX, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Dragonite's Ability is called Bust In and says that when you play Dragonite EX from your hand to your bench, you may move as many energy cards from your benched Pokemon to Dragonite EX as you like, if you do this, you must switch your active Pokemon with Dragonite EX.  Besides the Ability, Dragonite EX has only one move called Jet Sonic, this move requires three energy cards, two grass and one lightning, and does 80 damage plus 40 more damage if you choose to discard an energy card attached to Dragonite.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Dragonite 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 about Dragonite EX, the only time I would even include one of these in a deck would be if I were specifically building a grass and lightning dual type deck, otherwise I would stay away from this card.  Even if I were to build that dual type deck, I would still think long and hard about putting this card in that deck.  This card is actually very quick to use since you can pull all of the energy cards from your benched Pokemon and put it into the active Pokemon spot right away, plus you won't give away you have an EX card in your deck because you can keep Dragonite in your hand before you want to use it, but since this is an EX card and can only do 80 damage without discarding an energy card, it just isn't that good of a card and I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Basic, EX Pokemon card from the Furious Fists set.  I do like its high HP and its Ability, but this card only has one move that isn't that great for an EX card, thus making this card pretty unusable in play, resulting in my below average rating for this card.  There are plenty of EX cards out there better than this one that you should be using in your deck.
