Wailord EX -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Wailord EX Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Wailord EX and Wailord EX Full Art from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Wailord EX is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 250. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Wailord's Ability is called Water Veil, this ability removes all special conditions from Wailord when you attach a card to it.  Besides the Ability, Wailord just has one move called High Breaching, this move requires five water energy cards and does 120 damage, however using this move Wailord is asleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Wailord 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 Wailord EX, I would not recommend using this card in a deck.  Besides having a massive HP, this card is way too slow in my opinion to use, and does just as much damage as both Swampert cards from this set, but at least with those cards they don't go to sleep after using and the energy cost is less.  I know you can always attach an energy card to Wailord and because of its Ability awaken Wailord so it can attack again, but unless you have an easy way of moving energy cards from one Pokemon to another, you don't want to have all of your energy cards tied to this card.  So again, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, it is too slow in my opinion and the attack cost is too high, so this card is mainly a collector's card, something to be proud to have in your collection, since it has such a high HP.

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, if you can quickly move energy cards from Wailord EX every time you attach one to wake it up, this card is somewhat usable, just extremely.  If you can't do this, this card should not be used at all, and just is a high HP EX card that isn't suitable for actually play.

I don't think i have ever seen an EX card that can't be useful in it's own way, i just started collecting again after a long time, and wailord can be set up pretty quick with the help of other water cards like Deluge Blastoise or Primal Kyogres main attack that switches 2 of it's energy to a card on your bench.
Plus i find wailord to be great at stalling if your having pretty bad draws.

(as a new player of Pokemon TCG / TCGO, would anyone mind telling me an easy way to take out such large cards ? i'm only one week "old" in this, so i might not have so many options ... )

Catalin, the most inexpensive deck you can make which performs really well is a Night March Deck. All you need are 4 joltik, 4, Pumpkaboo, 4 lampents (All with the Night March Attack) and 4 Battle compressor trainer cards. thats the premise of it. Add other cards like Mew-ex Ultra ball professor juniper and N to make this a real quick set up.

For a better explanation just google search Night March.
