Umbreon EX -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Umbreon EX Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Umbreon EX and Umbreon EX Full Art from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Umbreon EX is a basic, EX, darkness type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to fighting type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to psychic type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Umbreon EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Veil of Darkness, for one colorless energy card this move does 20 damage plus allows you to draw as many cards from your deck as you discard from your hand.  Umbreon's second move is called Endgame and for three energy cards, two colorless and one darkness, this move does 70 damage, plus if this attack knocks out a Mega EX Pokemon, you get to take two additional prize cards.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Umbreon 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 Umbreon EX, there are two different strategies you could take with this card.  The first strategy is to include this card in a deck that includes Pokemon that can retrieve cards from the discard pile, that way, you can start the game with Umbreon EX in the active Pokemon spot, use Veil of Darkness to quickly get the cards you need into your hand, then later in the game retrieve those discarded cards and get them back into your hand or deck.  The other strategy with this card is to use it to get 4 prize cards at once, so get three energy cards on Umbreon and leave it on the bench, then when you are about to knock out a Mega EX, move it to the active Pokemon spot and use Endgame, thus allowing you to take 4 prize cards instead of 2.  Regardless of the strategy you use with this card, it is definitely one to look at when building a deck.

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.  This card isn't that spectacular overall, but there are two distinct strategies you can use with this card and will fit nicely into many decks out there.  So if you're building a deck, take a long look at incorporating this card into it.

Hello Primetime, I am Muddz, and I recently started out on Blogspot. Seeing your content (Pokèmon Cards), I wanted to ask you if we could do some kind of collab: my idea was making a Top 10 Easter Eggs in Pokèmon Cards, with the first 5 being on your blog and the other 5 being on mine. I sincerely hope you agree, since I am pretty proud of my content (except my first article, which one day I will remake), and it's always been my dream to entertain.
