Omastar BREAK -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Omastar BREAK Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Omastar BREAK from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  The way a BREAK card works is that you place it on top of the Pokemon with the exact name, so this card would be placed on top of Omastar, so basically this card is a Stage 2 card.  It is placed horizontally on the card it evolves from and can use that Pokemon's Abilities and Attacks as well as what is on the BREAK card.  Omastar BREAK is a BREAK (essentially a Stage 2), water type Pokemon card, with an hp of 140.  It has the same weakness, resistance and retreat cost as the Omastar you're evolving it from.  Omastar BREAK does not have any moves and it only has an Ability called Dangerous Tentacle and says that once per turn you may switch your opponent's benched EX Pokemon with their active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Omastar BREAK is a stage 2 Pokemon card, you'll first have to get Omanyte into play and evolve it into Omastar before you can evolve Omastar into Omastar BREAK.  I have reviewed both Omanyte and Omastar from this set the past couple of days, I thought both cards were solid overall, with the only downfall being Omanyte is a Restored Pokemon thus making it a little harder to get into play.  But if you're building a water type deck and need some solid attackers, this line is a good one to use, add in the fact that Omastar BREAK has a good yet dangerous Ability, and it is an excellent line to use.  So with the first two Pokemon in this line being fairly solid, I would definitely add this BREAK card to it, to utilize Omastar's BREAK.  What you're hoping for is that your opponent is using an EX card that requires several energy cards to attack, that way you can move it to the active Pokemon spot when it isn't ready and beat up on it while it is attaching energy or make your opponent retreat it without doing any damage.  Either way, this Ability is very good, the only time it isn't that great is if you're facing an EX card that is quick attacking, then you don't want to move it to the active Pokemon spot unless you can knock it out in one move.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is a very good BREAK Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  If you keep this card on the bench the entire game and just switch your opponent's Pokemon EX into the active Pokemon spot when you can for sure knock them out with one move, this card is amazing and a must have in a deck.  Used with the Omanyte and Omastar cards from this set, I would give the entire line a 4 out of 5 rating.
