Regirock EX -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Regirock EX Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Regirock EX from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Regirock EX is a basic, EX, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 180. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Regirock EX does have an Ability which is called Regi Power and says that the attacks of your fighting type Pokemon, excluding Regirock EX, are increased by 10.  Besides the Ability, Regirock just has one move called Bedrock Press, this move requires three fighting energy cards, and does 100 damage, plus it reduces any damage done to Regirock during your opponent's next turn by 20.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Regirock 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 Regirock EX, this is a pretty perfect card to include at least one of in a fighting type deck.  All you have to do is keep this card on the bench and you can utilize its Ability and increase your Pokemon's attacks by 10 damage.  Plus, if you spend the time to set this card up, it can do well above average damage every single turn, plus reduce damage done to Regirock.  The only downfall on this card is its high HP, but if you use a Switch trainer, it isn't that big of a deal.  So again, if you're building a fighting type deck, this card is a must have for your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a pretty impressive EX Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  Other than a higher HP, and a card that takes a little while to set up, this card is excellent.  It can be used on your bench without energy cards to increase the attacks of all of your fighting type Pokemon, or it can be put in the active Pokemon spot and do 100 damage a turn.  So like I said above, if you're building a fighting type deck, this card should be top priority for you.

True (assuming ex is not the same as EX)

False
Depends on if the "EX Series", starting with EX Ruby & Sapphire, counts. I want to count them because mechanically they were the same in the sense that you took two prizes if you knocked one out.

False-but it depends on if you count the earlier regirock ex as a regirock EX card.
