Kyogre EX -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card

Kyogre EX Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kyogre EX and Kyogre EX Full Art from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Kyogre EX is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Kyogre does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Water Pulse, this move requires two energy cards to use, one each of water and colorless, and does 30 damage, plus it puts the defending Pokemon to sleep.  Kyogre's second move is called Giant Whirlpool, this move requires four energy cards to use, two each of water and colorless, and does 140 damage, however after using this move you must move two water energy cards attached to Kyogre back to your hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Kyogre 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.  However, Kyogre does have a primal reversion form you could use from this set and I will be reviewing that card tomorrow, so this strategy below will act like Kyogre EX does not have an evolution.  So knowing this, on its own, I would be apprehensive about using this card in a deck, don't get me wrong, this card is very powerful being able to do 140 damage a turn, but since you have to move two energy cards back to your hand every turn, if you want to use Giant Whirlpool most of the time with this card or if you want to retreat Kyogre, you're always going to have to be attaching energy cards to Kyogre and never attaching them to any of your other Pokemon, meaning if Kyogre gets knocked out or you have to retreat it, it will be a couple of turns before any of your other Pokemon are set up and ready to use.  So I cannot recommend using this card in a deck, but if you choose to use it, definitely do not use more than 1 of these in a deck, I would potentially put four energy cards on this card on the bench and move it to the active Pokemon spot when I need a one hit knock out to win the game, I would then move it to the active Pokemon spot and use Giant Whirlpool.  The other move that Kyogre EX has, Water Pulse, is a pretty solid move, but for an EX card it isn't that great.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this card is a little below average for an EX Pokemon card.  This card definitely has some positives about it, it has a high HP, and a very powerful move, but it also has a very high retreat cost, and since this card makes you move two energy cards back to your hand every time you use its most powerful move, Kyogre EX will be a huge energy hog in your deck.  So overall, I would not recommend using this card in a deck, there are much better water type Pokemon to use out there.
