Mega Slowbro EX -- XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Mega Slowbro EX Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of M Slowbro EX from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Mega Slowbro EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, water type Pokemon card with a HP of 220. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Mega Slowbro EX does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Loll Roll Spin, for three water energy cards this move does 100 damage, however, Mega Slowbro is confused after using this move, but the next turn, if Mega Slowbro decides to use this move, it does 200 damage instead of 100.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
Before I start with the strategy, remember that this card is a Mega Evolution card and an EX card so if you use this card in your deck and it gets knocked out, your opponent gets to take two prize cards instead of one and when you evolve an EX card into its Mega Evolution, your turn ends, you cannot do anything else.  So knowing these things, you'll always want to use Mega Evolution cards with caution, with that being said, you'll always want to use the appropriate Spirit Link trainer card do evolve the EX card into its Mega EX form so you don't have to end your turn.  So knowing how Mega EX cards worth and knowing that Slowbro EX from this set is solid overall, just a little slow on the attack, requiring 3 water energy cards to do 100 damage, if you're already playing that card in a water type deck, there isn't a big need to upgrade to this card, since it does the same amount of damage when attacking, but Slowbro EX doesn't confuse itself after using its move.  I would rather do 100 damage a turn, then the potential to do 100 damage one turn and 200 damage the next.  Plus, this effect can easily be manipulated by the opponent by having Mega Slowbro EX switched out of the active Pokemon spot by a trainer like Escape Rope or by using a Pokemon's move.  So unless you think that the potential to possibly do 150 damage on average a turn is worth it, I would either stick to Slowbro EX or not use this line at all.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is a below average Mega EX Pokemon card overall.  Besides being slow to set up, since it is an evolution to a Basic Pokemon, you need three energy cards to attack, and could end up confusing yourself when trying to attack.  Considering that Slowbro EX does the same amount of damage per turn as the Mega form, I wouldn't use Mega Slowbro in a deck, and would give these two cards combined a 2 out of 5 rating.

It is true because yesterday we talked about how that Slowbro EX was the first English Slowbro Ultra Rare, so this must be the first time seeing how the two are in the same set.
