Gardevoir EX -- Steam Siege Pokemon Card Review

Gardevoir EX Steam Siege Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Gardevoir EX from the Steam Siege Pokemon Card Set.  Gardevoir EX is a basic, EX, fairy type Pokemon card with a HP of 170. It has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to darkness type Pokemon, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Gardevoir EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Link Blast, for two energy cards, one each of fairy and colorless, this move does 30 damage plus 70 more damage if both you and your opponent have the same number of energy attached to your active Pokemon.  Gardevoir EX's second move is called Luminous Blade and for three energy cards, two fairy and one colorless, this move does 120 damage, however an energy card must be discarded after using this move.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Gardevoir 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.  Gardevoir EX does have a Mega EX in this set, which I'll be reviewing tomorrow, so you'll want to make sure and read that review.  On its own, I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck, unless you plan on keeping it on the bench, attaching 4 or 5 energy cards to it and then fine with having to discard an energy card each time you attack.  Gardevoir EX's Link Blast move may do 100 damage once, but most times it will do 30 damage, which is pretty poor for an EX Pokemon's attacks.  Whereas Luminous Blade is a powerful move, discarding an energy each turn is definitely something that needs to be considered before playing this card in a deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average EX Pokemon card from the Steam Siege set.  Even though this card does have two moves, both doing damage, this card has a somewhat high retreat cost, lower HP, and neither of its moves are that great, both have potential, but there are caveats with both, meaning, I would look elsewhere when building a fairy type deck.
