Mewtwo EX 61/162 -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Mewtwo EX BREAKthrough
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mewtwo EX, Mewtwo EX Full Art, and Mewtwo EX Full Art secret rare from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  This is one set of Mewtwo EX from this set, I'll be reviewing the other Mewtwo EX tomorrow.  Mewtwo EX is a basic, EX, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mewtwo EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Photon Wave, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage, plus it reduces any damage done to Mewtwo EX during your opponent's next turn by 30.  Mewtwo's second move is called Psyburn, for four energy cards, two each of colorless and psychic, this move does 120 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Mewtwo 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, Mewtwo does have another EX card in this set as well as two Mega EX cards, so until I get done reviewing all of those cards, you won't know for sure how good this card is, but for now, I will assume that this card won't be evolved and you don't know about the other Mewtwo EX card from this set.  So, on its own, if you're building a psychic type deck, this card could be a decent starter type Pokemon since its quickest move only requires two energy cards to attack and damage is reduced on Mewtwo following that move, making weaker Pokemon unable to do damage to Mewtwo.  If you can't get Mewtwo into the active Pokemon spot to start the game, it makes more sense to get four energy cards on it on the bench and then do 120 damage a turn with Psyburn.  Because Mewtwo is slower on the attack, if you want to do major damage, I would only use one of these cards in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average EX Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  You definitely don't need to use this card in a psychic type deck, but it wouldn't hurt adding it to your deck since this card can do major damage every single turn and can be defensive with Photon Wave.

Here is what you could do to make this card better, PTP. You could add a Mystery energy, Dimension Valley in play, and even a Double Colorless energy to kick off photon wave. No retreat cost, 1 less energy to power Psyburn, and with the Mega Mewtwo Y EX, You've got yourself a pretty good pokemon.
