Houndoom EX -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Houndoom BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Houndoom EX and Houndoom EX Full Art from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Houndoom EX is a basic, EX, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Houndoom EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Melting Horn, this move requires one fire energy and allows you to discard the top 2 cards of your opponent's deck.  Houndoom's second move is called Grand Flame, for two fire energy cards this move does 50 damage plus allows you attach a fire energy card from your discard pile to one of your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Houndoom 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, Houndoom 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 Houndoom EX does not have an evolution.  So knowing this, on its own, I would highly recommend not using this card in a deck, for an EX card it just isn't powerful at all plus it has a little lower HP for an EX card.  So I cannot recommend any strategy with this card because it is so poor, don't use it unless you plan on using M Houndoom EX.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor EX Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  There is really nothing that I like about this card at all.  It has a lower HP, and two pretty poor moves for an EX card.  The first move can't do any damage at all and the second move does about average damage, so there is no reason to use this card in a deck at all.

Tomorrow's Pokemon Card:
So thanks for reading today's Pokemon card review of Houndoom EX from the BREAKthrough set, stay tuned for tomorrow's card review of Houndoom's mega evolution in M Houndoom EX, which is from this same set. Make sure to check below for the Free Pokemon TCG Online Codes!
