M Alakazam EX -- -Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Mega Alakazam EX Fates Collide
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of M Alakazam EX from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  M Alakazam EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, psychic type Pokemon card with an hp of 210. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  M Alakazam does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Zen Force and for two energy cards, one each of psychic and colorless, does 10 damage plus 30 more damage for each damage counter on your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
Before I start with the strategy, remember that this card is a Mega Evolution card and an EX card so if you use this card in your deck and it gets knocked out, your opponent gets to take two prize cards instead of one and when you evolve an EX card into its Mega Evolution, your turn ends, you cannot do anything else.  So knowing these things, you'll always want to use Mega Evolution cards with caution, with that being said, you'll always want to use the appropriate Spirit Link trainer card do evolve the EX card into its Mega EX form so you don't have to end your turn.  So knowing how Mega EX cards worth and knowing that Alakazam EX from this set is pretty good overall, having an excellent Ability that does damage to both your opponent's active Pokemon and benched Pokemon when evolving, plus spreading damage when using its move, this Mega EX card works very well with Alakazam, since both cards are spread attack type cards and this card can do major damage to your opponent's active Pokemon if it has a fair amount of damage on it already.  So I would recommend using a 1-1-1 line of this Pokemon family in a spread attack type deck, 1 each of Alakazam EX, Mega Alakazam EX, and the Alakazam Spirit Link card.  Try to get Alakazam into the active Pokemon spot early and start spreading damage around, then after using Alakazam a few turns, evolve it into the Mega version and attack your opponent's active Pokemon, assuming they already have damage on them from Alakazam, you should be able to knock out several Pokemon in a row.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average Mega EX Pokemon card on its own, but combined with Alakazam EX, which is always going to be used with this card, the card is above average overall since your opponent's Pokemon should have damage on them already and thus this card can do major damage every turn.  I like that this card has a low retreat cost and can attack quickly and the line is definitely worth using in a deck, getting a 4 out of 5 rating combined, the same rating each card received individually.
