Yveltal -- BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Review

Yveltal BREAKthrough Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Yveltal from the BREAKthrough Pokemon Card Set.  Yveltal is a basic, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 130, it has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Yveltal's Ability is called Fright Night and says that as long as Yveltal is in the active Pokemon spot, Pokemon Tool cards in play have no effect.  Besides the Ability, Yveltal just has one move called Pitch-Black Spear, for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, this move does 60 damage, plus this move does 60 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon EX.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Yveltal is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, this looks like a card which should only be used once in a deck, setting it up on the bench and waiting until your opponent gets an EX in play.  When that happens, you can move Yveltal into the active Pokemon spot and not only do 60 damage to the defending Pokemon, but 60 damage to that EX Pokemon as well.  With the popularity of EX Pokemon in the metagame, this move, Pitch-Black Spear, can be very effective.  But make sure any deck that has Yveltal in it, doesn't rely too heavily on Tool cards, as you can't use them when Yveltal is in the active Pokemon spot.  Since this card only requires one darkness energy card to attack, I would probably try and get a Special Energy card for the darkness energy card.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average Basic Pokemon card from the BREAKthrough set.  Other than being a little slow on the attack, this card is pretty good, having a well above average HP, and an above average move when EX Pokemon are in play.  But like I said above, the main reason you'd want to use this card in a deck is to combat EX cards, and this card does that perfectly, meaning you'll want to give this card a strong look when deck building.

False. Yveltal EX Full art is not the most valuable EX card from the XY Base Set. On average, the most valuable card from that set would be Mega Blastoise EX.
