Zygarde EX -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Zygarde EX Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Zygarde EX from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Zygarde EX is a basic, EX, fighting type Pokemon card with an hp of 190. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Zygarde EX does not have an Ability but it does have three moves.  The first move that this card has is called Land's Pulse and for one fighting energy card does 20 damage plus 20 more damage if there is a Stadium card in play.  Zygarde's second move is called Cell Storm and for two energy cards, one each of fighting and colorless, this move does 60 damage, it also heals 30 damage from Zygarde EX.  Zygarde's third move is called Land's Wrath and for three energy cards, two fighting and one colorless, this move does 100 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Zygarde 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 Zygarde EX, this is a perfect starter type Pokemon for a fighting type deck and I could see using up to 4 of these in a deck.  Other than the fact two prize cards are taken when this card is knocked out, this card is very quick on the attack and every move it has does well above average damage.  So you can either start the game with this card in the active Pokemon spot doing 20 then 60 then 100 damage, or set this card up on the bench and do 100 damage a turn when moving to the active Pokemon spot.  Plus, if you're facing weaker Pokemon, I like how Cell Storm will heal damage from Zygarde, making its 190 HP seem even higher, plus doing well above average damage.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an excellent EX Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  Other than having a higher retreat cost, you can't go wrong by using this card in a deck.  It is very powerful, has a high HP, and can attack quickly, I could definitely see building a deck around all of the Zygarde cards from this set.

I know Mega Alakazam FA and Umbreon FA are the most expensive so I say it's in the middle. False.

Kenny Ross said...

Oh, I read the question wrong but I still think False, Umbreon should be worth more.
