Ho-Oh EX -- BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Review

Ho-Oh EX BREAKpoint Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Ho-Oh EX from the BREAKpoint Pokemon Card Set.  Ho-Oh EX is a basic, EX, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to water type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Ho-Oh EX does have an Ability which is called Purifying Fire and says that once per turn, if Ho-Oh EX has an fire energy attached to it, you can heal 50 damage from it.  Besides the Ability, Ho-Oh EX just has one move called Elemental Feather that requires three energy cards to use, one each of grass, water, and lightning, and does 130 damage, plus 30 damage to one of your opponent's benched Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Ho-Oh 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 Ho-Oh EX, there is really no feasible way to use this card in a deck since it really requires four different energy types to use, fire, grass, water, and lightning, so unless you have that many energy card types in your deck, do not use this card.  Of course, Elemental Feather is a great move for three energy cards, but since it requires so many different types to use, it is just going to be too hard to get set up.  So I cannot recommend using this card in a deck, in my opinion, this card is mainly for collectors.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor EX Pokemon card from the BREAKpoint set.  Overall, this card has a solid HP, average retreat cost, a good Ability and powerful move, but like I've said above, because this card requires so many different energy types, it is pretty much unusable, thus getting a low rating from me.
