Primal Kyogre EX -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Primal Kyogre EX Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Primal Kyogre EX and Primal Kyogre EX Full Art from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Primal Kyogre EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 240. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  Primal Kyogre does not have an Ability but does have an Ancient Trait called Growth which says that when you attach an energy card from your hand to Primal Kyogre, you can attach two energy cards instead of one.  Besides the Ancient Trait, Primal Kyogre only has one move called Tidal Storm, this move requires four energy cards to use, three water and one colorless, and does 150 damage, however you have to move two energy cards from Primal Kyogre to one of your benched Pokemon, but this move also does do 30 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

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 (technically this card is a Primal Reversion card), with that being said, I really like the combination of Kyogre EX and Primal Kyogre EX together, yesterday I wasn't the highest on Kyogre EX, since it could do 140 damage in one turn but then you would have to move two energy cards back into your hand, but you could definitely put Kyogre into the active Pokemon spot, use the move on that card that does 140 damage, the next turn evolve Kyogre into Primal Kyogre, then the next turn when you attack, move those two energy cards you moved back into your hand onto Primal Kyogre using its Ancient Trait and then do 150 damage to the defending Pokemon and 30 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon with Tidal Storm.  I would definitely base a spread damage type deck around Kyogre EX and Primal Kyogre EX, and I would also make sure to include plenty of energy cards in this deck because the Kyogre line will need them.

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 Primal Clash set.  Like I said in the strategy section of this post, I would definitely recommend building a spread damage type deck around the line of Kyogre EX and Primal Kyogre EX, the reason I am only giving this card a 4 out of 5 rating instead of a 5 is because of how slow this card is on the attack and its extremely high retreat cost.  But like I said, together, I would also give this entire line a 4 out of 5 rating, even though I gave Kyogre EX only a 2 rating, this line is a great deck builder.

There are four primal reversion cards- Primal Kyogre, Primal Kyogre FA, Primal Groudon, Primal Groudon FA. Though there are two pairs of the same name card, they have different card IDs so I'll count them as two cards.
