Rayquaza EX 60/108 -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

Rayquaza EX Roaring Skies
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Rayquaza EX and Rayquaza EX Full Art from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  There are two different Rayquaza EX cards in this set, this review will be about the dragon type one.  Rayquaza EX is a basic, EX, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Rayquaza EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dragon Claw, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage.  Rayquaza's second move is called Dragon Strike, for four energy cards, two fire and one each of colorless and lightning, this move does 130 damage, however you must flip a coin when using this move and if you get a tails you can't use Dragon Strike the next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Rayquaza 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, Rayquaza 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 Rayquaza EX does not have an evolution.  So knowing this, on its own, if you're building a dual type deck of fire and lightning, including one of these cards in that deck is a no brainer.  All I would do is set this card up on the bench, get four energy cards on it, attach a Trick Coin trainer card to it, then when in the active Pokemon spot use Dragon Strike every single turn.  With Trick Coin attached to it, you would give yourself two chances every turn to make sure that you could use Dragon Strike multiple turns.  Dragon Claw isn't anything special, especially on an EX card, the only time I would use this move would be if I can't use Dragon Strike or if I have less than four energy cards on Rayquaza.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average EX Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set.  This card has a good HP, fairly low retreat cost, and two moves, one average the other one well above average.  So basically, if you're looking to add major power to your deck, this Rayquaza card should be considered.

True. Rayquaza is the only one. It is a colorless or a dragon type in Roaring Skies. No other card has two types in this set :-)
