Mega Pidgeot EX -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Mega Pidgeot EX Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of M Pidgeot EX from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Mega Pidgeot EX is a Mega Evolution, EX, colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 220. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a free retreat cost.  Mega Pidgeot EX does not have an Ability and it only has one move.  The only move that this card has is called Mach Cyclone, for three colorless energy cards this move does 130 damage, plus you may have your opponent switch their active Pokemon with a benched Pokemon.

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, and you'll always want to use the appropriate Spirit Link trainer card to evolve the EX card into its Mega EX form so you don't have to end your turn.  So knowing how Mega EX cards work and knowing that Pidgeot EX from this set is solid overall, having two good moves, one that copies the move recently used on Pidgeot and the second which does 80 damage to the defending Pokemon and 20 damage to a benched Pokemon of your opponent's, this card makes perfect sense to use with Pidgeot EX.  So with Pidgeot EX, you can easily put it into the active Pokemon spot to start the game and use Mirror Move to copy the opposing Pokemon's move, then if you can't get Mega Pidgeot into play right away you could spread damage around with Feather Lance and do 100 total damage a turn, what you'll want to remember is that both of the Pokemon in this line only require colorless energy cards so they can be used in any type deck and can be used with Double Colorless energy making both Pidgeot and Mega Pidgeot's slowest moves take only 2 energy cards.  Ideally, this line would be used in a spread attack type deck, you could do 20 damage to a couple of benched Pokemon with Pidgeot's Feather Lance move, then start using Mach Cyclone to continuously move either already damaged Pokemon into the active Pokemon spot, or do 130 damage a turn to several Pokemon in a row, then move something into the active Pokemon spot that does 20 or more damage to all of your opponent's benched Pokemon knocking multiple out at once.  Either way, if you're looking to do some major damage with your deck, and fairly quickly, this is definitely a line to use.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is one of the best Mega EX cards from the Evolutions set, plus it isn't a reprint of previous Mega EX cards like some of the others in this set.  Overall, this card is pretty powerful, doing 130 damage a turn to the defending Pokemon, but what makes it even better is that you can essentially spread damage around with this attack by utilizing Mach Cyclone's second half of the attack and forcing the opponent to switch their active Pokemon after being attacked, thus setting up for multiple knock outs later in the game.  In addition to the powerful move on Mega Pidgeot, a free retreat cost means you can move this card in and out of the active Pokemon spot at will, without having to waste energy cards.  Together with Pidgeot EX from this set, which I gave a 3 out of 5 rating, I would give these two Pokemon combined a 5 out of 5 rating, all because the two cards work so well together, and fit into so many decks.
