Palkia EX -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Palkia BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Palkia EX from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Palkia EX is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Palkia EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Aqua Turbo, for two water energy cards this move does 40 damage, plus this move allows you to search your deck for up to two water energy cards and attach them to one of your benched Pokemon.  Palkia's second move is called Pearl Hurricane, for four water energy cards this move does 120 damage plus 30 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Palkia 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 Palkia EX, the first thing you'll notice about this card is that it needs all water energy cards to attack, so it would be best to use this card in a majority water type deck.  Plus, to do major damage with this card it requires four energy cards, which would work better if you could set this card up on the bench, but I like the idea of starting the game with this card in the active Pokemon spot, you can't attack your first turn, but when you get two energy cards on Palkia, you can then add an energy card the next two turns to Palkia while still using the Aqua Turbo move and at the same time setting up your benched Pokemon by adding water energy to them.  Of course, after getting four energy cards on Palkia EX you should use Pearl Hurricane most turns.  This card should be used in a heavy water type deck and/or a spread damage type deck since Pearl Hurricane can do damage to benched Pokemon.  I would highly recommend using one of these Palkia EX cards in a deck.

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.  This is one that I would definitely include in a water type or spread damage type deck, the only real drawback on this card is that it doesn't have an Ability, but I really like how once in the active Pokemon spot this card can do major damage to the defending Pokemon, attack your opponent's benched Pokemon, and add energy cards to your own benched Pokemon.  So like I've said, if you're building a water type deck, definitely consider using this card in it.

So has anyone actually been sent codes to their Youtube channel by PTP? Seriously. He says he's gunna comment on here with the winner's name and I've never seen him do it. I comment several times a week here, and with how few comments there are daily, I'm finding it hard to believe I haven't won yet. There is absolutely no way I can have that bad of luck, cuz that means somebody else would've had to have won multiple times since I started answering these trivia questions.

Anybody else feel the same?
