Mega Gengar EX -- Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Review

Mega Gengar EX Phantom Forces Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mega Gengar EX from the Phantom Forces Pokemon Card Set.  Mega Gengar EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 220. It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mega Gengar does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Phantom Gate, this move requires three energy cards to use, two colorless and one psychic, and allows you to choose one of your opponent's Pokemon's attacks and use it as the attack for Mega Gengar.

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, with that being said, I would definitely consider using Mega Gengar with Gengar EX in a spread damage or a psychic type deck.  I would be more keen to use Gengar EX if I was just building a spread damage type deck, and more likely to use both if building a psychic type deck.  I wouldn't include more than a 1-1 line of the two Pokemon and I would set up Mega Gengar on the bench, then when my opponent would get a Pokemon in play that can do 100 plus damage in a turn, I would move Mega Gengar EX into the active Pokemon spot and use that move for only three energy cards.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Mega EX Pokemon card from the Phantom Forces set.  I like that this card can prevent your opponent from even putting strong Pokemon on their bench as well as use their strong Pokemon's moves against them.  So again, if you're building a spread damage type deck, just use Gengar EX, but if you're building a psychic type deck, use a 1-1 line of these two Pokemon, together I would give these two EX cards a 3 out of 5 rating, Gengar EX was a 2, and Mega Gengar EX was a 4.
