Diancie EX -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Diancie EX Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Diancie EX from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Diancie EX is a basic, EX, fairy type Pokemon card with an hp of 150. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Diancie EX's Ability is called Sparkle Veil and says that as long as Diancie is your active Pokemon, any damage done to your Pokemon is reduced by 30.  Besides the Ability, Diancie EX just has one move called Wonder Stage, for three energy cards, two colorless and one fairy, this move does 60 damage plus 50 more damage if a Stadium card is in play.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Diancie 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 Diancie EX, if you're building a fairy type deck or think you'll be facing a spread attack type deck, this card is perfect, since you can do 110 damage a turn for three energy cards with Wonder Stage and essentially prevent spread attacks by utilizing Diancie's Ability.  So if you're going to use this card in a deck, you probably only need to use 1, and you'll want to make sure to have a Stadium card in play at all times to do 110 damage a turn instead of 50.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 3 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an average EX Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  This card can really work well as a defensive card, stopping your opponent's strategy, but if your opponent isn't attacking your benched Pokemon, this Ability doesn't have as much of an effect, making it an average card overall.  Nevertheless, this is a card to strongly consider when building a fairy type deck.
