Glaceon EX -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Glaceon EX Fates Collide
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Glaceon EX from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Glaceon EX is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Glaceon EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Second Bite, for two energy cards, one each of water and colorless, this move does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on the defending Pokemon.  Glaceon EX's second move is called Crystal Ray and for three energy cards, two colorless and one water, this move does 70 damage, plus it prevents all damage done to Glaceon during your opponent's next turn if they're attacking with an evolved Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Glaceon 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 Glaceon EX, the way I would recommend using this card by setting one up on the bench, and then when in the active Pokemon spot using Crystal Ray every turn.  This move does above average damage and as long as you're facing a Stage 1 or Stage 2 card, Glaceon won't receive any damage in return after using this move either, thus giving you plenty of time to get your bench set up or heal your bench.  You could also use this card in a spread attack type deck and again, set it up on the bench, then when you have at least 20 or 30 damage on all of your opponent's Pokemon, you could put Glaceon into the active Pokemon spot and use Second Bit to do a good amount of damage for only two energy cards as opposed to three with Crystal Ray.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average EX Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  Other than having a little higher retreat cost, this card is solid overall, both moves on this card do a good amount of damage, and I really like Crystal Ray since it prevents damage as well.  So if you're building a water type deck, and are looking for some power, definitely consider using this Glaceon EX card.
