Espeon GX -- Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Review

Espeon GX Sun and Moon Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Espeon GX from the Sun and Moon Pokemon Card Set.  Espeon GX is a Stage 1, Water type Pokemon card, with a HP of 200.  It has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Espeon GX does not have an Ability but it does have three moves.  The first move that this card has is called Psybeam, for one Psychic Energy card this move does 30 damage and Confuses the defending Pokemon.  Espeon GX's second move is called Psychic and for three Energy cards, one Psychic and two Colorless, this move does 60 damage plus 30 more damage for each Energy card attached to your opponent's Active Pokemon.  Espeon GX's GX move is called Divide GX, for three Energy cards, one Psychic and two Colorless, this move allows you to put 100 damage on your opponent's Pokemon in any way that you'd like.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, first off, the way a Pokemon GX works is that it is used instead of a regular Espeon card, so you do not need to first play Espeon and then evolve it into Espeon GX, instead you can evolve Eevee directly into Espeon GX.  In play, only one GX move can be used during the entire game, and once a Pokemon GX is knocked out, two prize cards are taken instead of one.  There is an Eevee card in this set that you could use with Espeon GX, but I have not reviewed it yet since it is a Colorless type Pokemon.  Because the opponent would get two prize cards instead of one if Espeon GX is knocked out, I would not move it into the Active Pokemon spot to use Psybeam, instead I would evolve the line on the Bench, getting three Energy cards on it, that way you could either save it until your opponent plays a Pokemon with a lot of Energy cards on it, therefore you could do major damage with Psychic, or you could use its GX move in a spread attack type deck, either knocking out multiple Pokemon at once with 100 damage, or setting up your opponent's Benched Pokemon to be knocked out by another Pokemon in your deck.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion this is an above average Pokemon GX from the Sun and Moon set.  Although it isn't quick on the attack, this card has a very high HP, and three moves to use when attacking.  I like how this card can be used to take down a Pokemon with a heavy attack cost, as well as be used in a spread attack type deck.  So, if you're building a Psychic type deck, I would certainly consider using this GX card.
