Altaria EX -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Altaria Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Altaria EX and Altaria EX Full Art from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Altaria EX is a basic, EX, colorless type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Altaria EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Powerful Gain, for two colorless energy cards this move does 30 damage plus 60 more damage if Altaria was healed during the turn you are attacking, plus heals 30 more from Altaria if that is true.  Altaria's second move is called Shining Wind and for three colorless energy cards this move does 80 damage, plus it makes it so Altaria does not have a weakness during your opponent's next turn.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Altaria 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.  Altaria EX does have a Mega EX card in this set that I've actually reviewed already since it was a fairy type card, I thought that card was an amazing Mega EX card overall, not only could it do well above average damage for only three energy cards, but it could also heal damage from all of your Pokemon in play.  So knowing that about the Mega EX card and looking at this EX card, on its own, this card isn't that great, but it is needed to get to the Mega EX.  Powerful Gain could be a good move if you heal Altaria before attacking, but the move Mega Altaria has is much better than that move.  So strategy wise, either don't use this card at all, or only use it to get to Mega Altaria EX.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average EX Pokemon card overall.  There really isn't anything spectacular about this card, but it can fit into any type deck, has two moves, and can have no weakness thus allowing its HP to seem higher.  Even though this card isn't that great overall, combined with Mega Altaria from this set, I would give both cards a 4 out of 5 rating.
