Gardevoir EX -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Gardevoir EX Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gardevoir EX and Gardevoir EX Full Art from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Gardevoir EX is a basic, EX, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gardevoir EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Life Leap, for one fairy type energy card this move does 20 damage plus heals the same amount of damage from Gardevoir that you did to the defending Pokemon.  Gardevoir's second move is called Shining Wind, this move requires three fairy type energy cards to use, and does 100 damage, plus during your opponent's next turn, Gardevoir has no weakness.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Gardevoir 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, Gardevoir does have a mega evolution you could use from this set and I will be reviewing that card tomorrow, so this strategy below will act like Gardevoir EX does not have an evolution.  So knowing this, on its own, the only reason you would want to use this card in a deck is to do 100 damage a turn with Shining Wind, other than that, there isn't much else to talk about with this card.  So do 100 damage a turn every turn with Gardevoir, unless you can knock out the defending Pokemon by doing 20 damage or less, then use Life Leap so you can heal some damage off of Gardevoir.  I would definitely use one of these EX cards in a fairy type deck just because it is so powerful and can do 100 damage every single turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Basic, EX Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  There really isn't anything that I dislike about it, but for an EX card I would have hoped for two great moves, not just one average move and one great move.  But like I said in the strategy section of this post, doing 100 damage a turn with Shining Wind will do quite a bit of damage on your opponent's Pokemon, so this card should definitely be used in fairy type decks.

XY which was released on 5th February, 2014 was the first English set to include fairy type Pokemon cards, with a total of 12 of them.

The first English set to include Fairy type Pokémon was XY Kalos Starter Set in November 2013 and in the Chespin Deck BUT, as you're no going to consider this as a set itself, I have to say: X and Y (3 months later).

Does it heal just 20 or the full amount of damage done? Why is it worded that way?
