M Rayquaza EX 76/108 -- Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Review

M Rayquaza EX Roaring Skies
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mega Rayquaza EX from the Roaring Skies Pokemon Card Set.  This is the second of two Mega Rayquaza cards I've reviewed from this set, the other being a dragon type card.  Mega Rayquaza EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 220. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mega Rayquaza does not have an Ability but it does have an Ancient Trait called Evolution that says you may evolve Rayquaza into M Rayquaza the first turn of the game or as soon as you put Rayquaza into play.  Besides the Ancient Trait, this card just has one move called Emerald Break that requires three colorless energy cards to use and does 30 damage times the number of your 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, with that being said, I would highly recommend using this card in any type deck out there, I would however make sure to use it with the Sky Field stadium card which allows both you and your opponent to have up to 8 Pokemon on your bench, that way, you can get 8 Pokemon on your bench, then use M Rayquaza's Emerald Break move and do 240 damage a turn every single turn.  So looking at the two M Rayquaza EX cards from this set, I would much rather use this card than the Dragon type one even though that card can do up to 300 damage a turn, the move is much slower and requires you to discard energy every time you use it.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an excellent Mega EX Pokemon card from the Roaring Skies set and one that a deck could be built around if you plan on using the Sky Field stadium card with it allowing you to do 240 damage every single turn for only three energy cards.  Combined with Rayquaza EX, the colorless type, I would still give this line a 5 out of 5 rating just because I think M Rayquaza EX is so good.
