Tapu Lele GX -- Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Review

Tapu Lele GX Guardians Rising Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Tapu Lele GX from the Guardians Rising Pokemon Card Set.  Tapu Lele GX is a Basic, Psychic type Pokemon card, with a HP of 170.  This card does not have a weakness or a resistance type, and it has a one Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  Tapu Lele GX's Ability is called Wonder Tag, it says that when you play Tapu Lele from your hand to your Bench, you may search your deck for a Supporter card and put it into your hand.  Besides the Ability, this card has one regular move and one GX move.  Its first move is called Energy Drive, for two Colorless Energy cards this move does 20 damage times the number of Energy attached to both Active Pokemon.  The GX move on this card is called Tapu Cure GX, for one Psychic Energy card, this move allows you to heal all damage from 2 of your Benched Pokemon.

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 Tapu Lele card, so you do not need to first play Tapu Lele and then evolve it into Tapu Lele 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.  So knowing how a GX card works, this is one of the best Pokemon GX out right now.  The main reason this card is in such high demand is because of its Ability, allowing you to get specific Supporter cards into your hand very quickly.  Including multiple Tapu Lele GX cards in your deck makes it that much easier to get Supporter cards into your hand.  Besides the Ability, both its regular move and its GX move are also pretty great.  Energy Drive can do a minimum of 40 damage per turn, and will more than likely do significantly more damage with the Energy attached to your opponent's Active Pokemon.  Plus, if you use Tapu Lele GX solely on the Bench until the end of the game, you can get tons of damage on two of your Pokemon, retreat them both, use Tapu Lele's GX move while in the Active Pokemon spot and remove all damage from those two Pokemon.  Many decks are being built around Tapu Lele GX, so it is definitely one worth taking a look at.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 5 out of 5 rating.  Just knowing that this card is the most valuable GX in Guardians Rising gives a great idea on how good it is.  Altogether, there isn't a much better GX card out there, it is similar to how good Shaymin EX from Roaring Skies was.  This card has a great Ability and two great moves.  Definitely think long and hard about building a deck with Tapu Lele GX.
