M Houndoom EX -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

M Houndoom EX BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of M Houndoom EX from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  M Houndoom  EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, fire type Pokemon card with an hp of 210. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  M Houndoom does not have an Ability or an Ancient Trait and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Inferno Fang and for two fire energy cards this move does 80 damage plus 80 more damage if you choose to discard all fire energy attached to this card.

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.  Knowing that Houndoom EX from this set is very poor, I would highly recommend setting this card up on the bench and using only Burning Energy cards with this card, that way, you can do 160 damage a turn for only two energy cards every single turn and not have to discard any energy because Burning Energy cards can be reattached immediately when discarding.  So I would recommend using a 1-1 line of these two Pokemon in a fire type deck and having this Mega Houndoom card be one of your main attackers.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very powerful Mega EX Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  Even though this card is really limited in what it can do, only having one move, this card is very quick to attack, can do 160 damage every single turn and has a low retreat cost, so it would be a great addition to any fire type deck out there.  Together with Houndoom EX from this set, which I gave a 1 rating, I will give these two cards a 4 out of 5 rating, this line is definitely recommended.

True. Houndoom and Mega Houndoom EXs are the only Fire-Type Ultra Rare cards in the BREAKthrough expansion.

Not to be irksome, but the last time you've announced the winner was Lugia EX, which was in the Ancient Origins expansion. There has been an effect because of that, which is shown the decline in the number of people answering the questions. While that is good for the people still remaining, wouldn't the right and honourable thing to do is to announce the winner or at least give us an explanation? I'm sure most of us would be very understanding if you just respond.

P.S. This card would work well with Pyroar (Flashfire 20/106), Burning Energy(Breakthrough 151/162) & Blacksmith (Flashfire 88/106).
