Aegislash -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Aegislash BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Aegislash from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Aegislash is a stage 2, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has a x2 weakness to darkness type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Aegislash does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Painful Sword and for three colorless energy cards, this move doubles the number of damage counters on each of your opponent's Pokemon.  Aegislash's second move is called Megaton Slash, for four energy cards, two each of psychic and colorless, this move does 100 damage, plus it does 10 damage to two of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Aegislash is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Honedge into play and then evolve it into Doublade before you can evolve Doublade into Aegislash, both of those Pokemon are from this set and I've reviewed both of them the last two days.  If you've read my reviews of those cards you'll know that I thought both Pokemon were below average overall.  Both could attack fairly quickly, but had lower HP, higher retreat costs than attack costs, and both cards were limited to only have one move.  So knowing this about the first two Pokemon in this line and looking at this Aegislash card, you're definitely going to want to play this card if you're building a spread attack type deck.  That way, you can set this card up on the bench, and first use a card in the active Pokemon spot that does at least 10 damage to all of your opponent's Pokemon.  After using that card a few turns, you can then put Aegislash into the active Pokemon spot and knock out several at once with Painful Sword.  And if you have to, you can use Megaton Slash first, then use Painful Sword second, doing 100 damage to the defending Pokemon with Painful Sword and 10 damage to at least two of your opponent's benched Pokemon.  This card is very powerful overall, and one I would highly consider when deck building.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an extremely powerful Stage 2 Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint.  Other than having a little low HP, this card should be unstoppable in play, able to do major damage every turn, and potentially knock out several Pokemon at one time.  So if you're building a spread attack type deck, this card should be in there for sure.  Together with Honedge and Doublade from this set, which I gave 2 out of 5 ratings, these three Pokemon get a 4 out of 5 rating from me, definitely use this line in a deck.

The answer is: yes, and no.
the statment is true because there were no regular Aegislash cards that were ultra rare, but its also false because there was an Aegislash EX which was an ultra rare.
