Kyurem EX -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

Kyurem EX Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kyurem EX and Kyurem EX Full Art from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  Kyurem EX is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  This card does not have an Ancient Trait or an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Glaciate and for three energy cards, two water and one colorless, this move does 30 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon.  Kyurem's second move is called Icecalibur and for four energy cards, three water and one colorless, this move does 130 damage, however you must discard an energy attached to Kyurem after attacking, but it also prevents your opponent's active Pokemon from attacking during their next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Kyurem 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.  So knowing this about Kyurem EX, this card would work in a heavy water type deck or a spread damage type deck.  It is imperative that you set this card up on the bench since it is so slow on the attack, but once you get three energy cards on it you can move it to the active Pokemon spot and use either Glaciate every turn if you're using it in a spread damage type deck, or make sure you have an abundance of energy cards on it and use Icecalibur most turns to hopefully knock the defending Pokemon out in one turn, for sure two, and prevent them from ever attacking.  Because this card is slower on the attack, I wouldn't recommend more than one of these in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very powerful Pokemon EX from the Ancient Origins set and one I would recommend using in a water type deck.  The only downfall of this card is that its quickest move requires three energy cards to use, other than that, it has an above average HP and two great moves, allowing it to be used for its power alone in a water type deck, or to be put in a spread damage type deck and able to knock out several Pokemon at once.

False. Kyurem EX is not one of your favourite cards in the Ancient Origins expansion. However, I feel that the Full Art looks beautiful and has two pretty solid moves.

I'm having trouble understanding how this card works. Because if u have enough energy u can just keep using its Icecalibur and keep taking out cards. So my question is if it takes a Pokemon out does that mean the next Pokemon can attack it ?
