Slowbro EX -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Slowbro EX Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Slowbro EX from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Slowbro EX is a basic, EX, water type Pokemon card with a HP of 180. It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Slowbro EX does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Slack Off, for two colorless energy cards this move heals 60 damage from Slowbro EX, however it prevents Slowbro from attacking the next turn.  Slowbro EX's second move is called Flash Splash and for three water energy cards this move does 100 damage.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Slowbro 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.  Slowbro 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, this card could definitely be used in a water type deck since it can do 100 damage every single turn, so ideally, you would set this card up on the bench and once it has three energy cards move it to the active Pokemon spot.  Slack Off is fairly useless unless the attacking Pokemon does much less than 60 damage or Slowbro EX will be knocked out the next turn if damage isn't removed from Slowbro.  But, once you use that move, you'll want to switch Slowbro EX out of the active Pokemon spot so you don't have to take a turn without attacking.  Because this card is slow on the attack and really only has one move, I wouldn't use more than 1 of these in a water type deck.

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 XY Evolutions set.  Although this card has its limitations, since it is slow on the attack, has a high retreat cost, and can't attack two turns in a row when using Slack Off, I think that this card does enough damage every turn with Flash Splash that it is average overall, and worth considering when building a water type deck.
