Espeon EX -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Espeon EX BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Espeon EX from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Espeon EX is a basic, EX, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Espeon EX does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Miraculous Shine, for one colorless energy card this move allows you to devolve each of your opponent's evolved Pokemon and put the highest Stage evolution card on each Pokemon back into their hand.  Espeon's second move is called Psyshock and for three energy cards, two colorless and one psychic, this move does 70 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Espeon 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 Espeon EX, I would highly recommend this card for a spread attack type deck.  It would make most sense to get a Pokemon in the active Pokemon spot that can do 20 damage to each of your opponent's benched Pokemon, use that move a couple of times, then move Espeon into the active Pokemon spot and use Miraculous Shine, and hopefully knock out several of your opponent's Pokemon at the same time.  I am a huge fan of this move, and it is a move that can really ruin your opponent's strategy if they are using a lot of evolution forms in their deck and retreating their Pokemon a lot.  Besides that move, Espeon can be used as a straight attacker, by using Psyshock which does above average damage for three energy cards.  So if you're building a psychic type or spread attack type deck definitely consider using one Espeon EX in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very good EX Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Other than being slow on the attack, by requiring three energy cards to use Psyshock, this card is very good overall, of course Miraculous shine is a great move, but it may do nothing if your opponent just has Basic Pokemon in play.  But I like this move quite well, and this card should definitely be included in spread attack type decks, to knock out several Pokemon at one time.
