Darkrai EX -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Darkrai EX BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Darkrai EX from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Darkrai EX is a basic, EX, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Darkrai EX does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Dark Pulse, for two colorless energy cards this move does 20 damage plus 20 more damage for each darkness type energy card attached to all of your Pokemon.  Darkrai's second move is called Dark Head and for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, this move does 80 damage plus 80 more damage if the defending Pokemon is asleep.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Darkrai 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 Darkrai EX, I would highly recommend using this card in a heavy darkness type deck.  You could then get many of your Pokemon set up, then move Darkrai into the active Pokemon spot and use Dark Pulse every turn, doing major damage since you have so many darkness energy cards in play.  If you don't have a majority of darkness type Pokemon in your deck, I wouldn't recommend this card.  Another strategy you could use with this card is to have a Pokemon that can put the defending Pokemon to sleep, then be able to quickly rotate between that Pokemon and Darkrai EX, so you can do 180 damage a turn with Dark Head.  Overall, this is a pretty powerful Pokemon card that should be used in darkness type decks, and in other type decks, should at least be considered.

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.  If you're building a darkness type deck, this card should be one used in that deck, since it can do so much damage when darkness energy are in play.  So if you're looking for a pretty powerful attacker, that doesn't require that many energy cards to use, I would highly recommend this Darkrai EX card.
