M Gyarados EX -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

M Gyarados EX BREAKpoint
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of M Gyarados EX from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  M Gyarados EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 240. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  M Gyarados does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Blast Geyser, for four colorless energy cards, this move does 120 damage plus 20 more damage for each water energy card attached to this Pokemon, however if you decide to do the extra damage you need to discard the top 2 cards of your deck.

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 Gyarados EX from this set is very poor, since it is very slow on the attack and damages your own Pokemon, ideally you would want to set up this entire line on the bench.  If you're using four Double Colorless energy cards in your deck, this card is actually quick on the attack only requiring two energy cards, and doing 120 damage a turn, of course if you have four water energy cards on this card is can do 200 damage a turn, and as long as you can retrieve the cards from the discard pile after using this move, this is the way to go.  So if you're building a water type deck and need some power, I would consider using a 1-1 line of this Pokemon family.  But, just like Gyarados EX, this card is pretty slow on the attack, and has consequences when attacking.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a pretty average Mega EX Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  I like that this card has a strong HP and a powerful move, but I don't like how slow this card is and the fact you have to discard cards from your deck when attacking.  Together with Gyarados EX from this set, I cannot give the two cards higher than a 2 out of 5 rating, there are definitely better EX cards to use out there.
