Manaphy EX -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Manaphy EX BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Manaphy EX from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Manaphy EX is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 120. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Manaphy EX's Ability is called Aqua Tube and says that each of your Pokemon in play that have water energy attached to them have a free retreat cost.  Besides the Ability, Manaphy just has one move called Mineral Pump that for two water energy cards, does 60 damage, plus it heals 30 damage a turn from your benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Manaphy 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.  So knowing this about Manaphy EX, the major difference between this EX card and Palkia EX from yesterday, is Manaphy can do most of its damage from the bench.  So I would highly recommend using this card in a water type deck, keeping it on the bench and making all of your Pokemon with water type energy have free retreat costs.  Ideally, you would use both Palkia EX and Manaphy EX in a deck, you could get Palkia EX in the active Pokemon spot to start the game, use Aqua Turbo a couple of turns, getting water energy cards on your benched Pokemon, then before Palkia is knocked out, retreat it for free using Manaphy's Ability, and keep retreating Pokemon from the active Pokemon spot for free until several of your Pokemon have damage on them, you can then use Manaphy EX in the active Pokemon spot and heal 30 damage a turn from your benched Pokemon with Mineral Pump.  So I would highly recommend using this card in a water type deck, and highly recommend using it with Palkia EX.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very good EX Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Just like yesterday's Palkia EX card, I really like this Manaphy EX, and the two work perfectly together.  There are unlimited possibilities of decks to build when combining Manaphy and Palkia EX from this set, so again, definitely consider using this card in a water type deck when building.
