Camerupt EX -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Camerupt Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Camerupt EX and Camerupt EX Full Art from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Camerupt 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 four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Camerupt does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Tumbling Attack, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of fire and colorless, and does 30 damage plus 30 more damage if you get a heads when you flip a coin.  Camerupt's second move is called Explosive Jet, this move requires four energy cards to use, two each of colorless and fire, and does 50 damage times the number of fire energy cards you choose to discard from your Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Camerupt 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 Camerupt EX, the only time I would recommend using this card in a deck is if you're using it with the Blaziken line from this set.  That way, you can have no fear putting Camerupt into the active Pokemon spot once you have four energy cards on it and using Explosive Jet every time discarding energy cards, then put Blaziken in the active Pokemon spot after that to retrieve energy cards from the discard pile.  If you aren't using Blaziken in your deck, I would highly recommend against using this card in a deck since it requires a lot of energy cards to attack and a lot of energy cards to retreat.  Regardless of the deck you're building, if you choose to use this card at all, I wouldn't use more than 1 of them 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, EX Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  Like I mentioned above, this card could become better if used with Blaziken, but overall I would not recommend using this card in a deck since it takes four energy cards to do major damage, and you have to discard more energy to make sure that move does damage.  So if you're looking for some power for your fire type deck, I would guide you elsewhere.
