Necrozma GX -- Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Review

Necrozma GX Burning Shadows Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Necrozma GX from the Burning Shadows Pokemon Card Set.  Necrozma GX is a Basic, Psychic type Pokemon card, with a HP of 180.  This card has a x2 weakness to Psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two Colorless Energy card retreat cost.  This card's Ability is called Light's End and says that all damage from Colorless type Pokemon are prevented when attacking this card.  Besides the Ability, this card has one normal move and one GX move.  Its normal move is called Prismatic Burst, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 10 damage plus 60 more damage for each Psychic Energy you discard when discarding all Energy attached to this card.  The GX move on this card is called Black Ray GX, for three Colorless Energy cards, this move does 100 damage to each of your opponent's Pokemon GX and EX.

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 Necrozma card, so you do not need to first play Necrozma and then evolve it into Necrozma 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 an ideal card to use with Metagross GX, since the Ability on that card allows you to attach a Psychic Energy card from your discard pile to your Active Pokemon each turn, so if you have 2 or 3 Metagross GX set up on your Bench, you can pretty easily do 190 damage per turn with Prismatic Burst.  Plus, not only can you do major damage each turn with this card, but any Colorless type Pokemon out there won't work against Necrozma GX due to its Ability.  If you aren't pairing this card with Metagross GX, it isn't nearly as good, but I do like this card's GX move, and the fact it only requires Colorless Energy cards, doing 100 damage to all of your opponent's GX and EX cards, could do up to 630 damage in one turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, when used with Metagross GX, this is a great GX card and an above average one overall.  If you aren't pairing this card with something that can help quickly attach Energy, this card is below average overall.  But like I said above, this card has a solid HP, a great Ability, and two powerful moves, certainly consider this card when deck building.
