M Tyranitar EX -- Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Review

M Tyranitar EX Ancient Origins Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of M Tyranitar EX from the Ancient Origins Pokemon Card Set.  M Tyranitar EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 240. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a four colorless energy card retreat cost.  M Tyranitar has an Ancient Trait called Double that says 2 Pokemon Tool cards can be attached to this card at the same time.  Besides the Ancient Trait, this card just has one move called Destroyer King, for four energy cards, two each of colorless and darkness, this move does 110 damage plus 60 more damage for each damage counter on your opponent's active 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, you'll always want to use the appropriate Spirit Link trainer card do evolve the EX card into its Mega EX form so you don't have to end your turn.  If you're building a spread damage type deck and have a card that can do 10 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon at once, I would definitely recommend using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon line in that deck.  I would make sure to get M Tyranitar set up on the bench, then when all of your opponent's Pokemon have at least 10 damage on them, you can move this card to the active Pokemon spot and use Destroyer King every turn, knocking out almost every Pokemon in two turns or less.  The most important thing with this card is to move it to the active Pokemon spot when all of your opponents Pokemon have damage on them, making it that much easier to knock them out in one move.

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 Ancient Origins set, and a great card to use in a spread damage type deck.  I can see this card being very powerful in that type of deck and once put into the active Pokemon spot being able to one hit knock out pretty much all of the defending Pokemon until you win the game.  However, since this card works best in spread damage type decks and Tyranitar EX is underwhelming, I would give these two cards combined a 3 out of 5 rating.

False. Based on your youtube video titled 'Pokemon Ancient Origins Booster Box Opening Pt. 1' uploaded at 16th August, 2015 at the 9:27 to 9:48 minutes mark, Mega Ampharos EX was the first Mega EX Pokemon card you pulled from the Ancient Origins set.
