Dragonite EX -- Evolutions Pokemon Card Review

Dragonite EX XY Evolutions Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Dragonite EX from the XY Evolutions Pokemon Card Set.  Dragonite EX is a basic, EX, colorless type Pokemon card with a HP of 180. It has a x2 weakness to lightning type Pokemon, a -20 resistance to fighting type Pokemon, and a three colorless energy card retreat cost.  Dragonite EX has an Ability called Pull Up, that says when this card is moved from your hand to your bench, you may move 2 Basic Pokemon from your discard pile into your hand.  Besides the Ability, Dragonite EX just has one move called Hyper Beam, for 4 colorless energy cards this move does 130 damage, plus it allows you to discard an energy attached to your opponent's active Pokemon.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, because Dragonite 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 the main reason you'd want to use this card in a deck is for its Ability, you could use this card solely from the bench, allowing you to use less of an important card, just retrieving it from the discard pile multiple times, or make it seem like you're using more than 4 of that same card, giving you a much better chance of always being able to play that great Basic Pokemon card.  If you're using 4 Double Colorless energy cards in your deck, this card is pretty powerful, for two energy cards doing 130 damage.  So overall, if you're using a lot of Basic Pokemon in your deck, or are already using 4 Double Colorless energy, this card should definitely be used in a deck, since it can aid in retrieving Pokemon from the discard pile and it can be a heavy hitter.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average EX Pokemon card from the XY Evolutions set.  Like I mentioned above, this card can be a powerful attacker or it can be used solely on the bench, so there are two great strategies this card can be used for.  Other than being slow on the attack, I like this card overall, it fits into any type deck, and can really help your entire deck out.
