Kingdra EX -- Fates Collide Pokemon Card Review

Kingdra EX Fates Collide Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Kingdra EX from the Fates Collide Pokemon Card Set.  Kingdra EX is a basic, EX, dragon type Pokemon card with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to fairy type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost.  Kingdra EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Big Storm, for one colorless energy card this move does 20 damage, plus it allows you to discard a Stadium card in play.  Kingdra's second move is called Dragon Trail and for four energy cards, three colorless and one water, this move does 60 damage plus 30 more damage for each Lightning energy attached to this card.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Kingdra 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 Kingdra EX, really the only deck I would even consider using this card in would be a dual type lightning and water type deck, since you could then do up to 150 damage per turn with Dragon Trail.  In that scenario, you would just have to set Kingdra up on the bench because there is no point in putting it into the active Pokemon spot to do 20 damage a turn.  Outside of that dual type deck, this card shouldn't be used, it is just too weak, having two under-powered moves and not that high of an HP.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 1 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a very poor EX Pokemon card from the Fates Collide set.  I do like that this card has a low retreat cost and two moves, but like I said above, there is only one situation you should use this card in, other than that, this card just doesn't do much damage and is pretty slow as well, so if you're building a deck and looking for an EX card to use, definitely quickly skip over this one.
