General description:
I despise this card. It one of THE CHEAPEST exs ever. It's a shame that my favorite dragon next to Dragonite has to be a card I hate

Uses:
To stall and be annoying. Probably best used in a colorless/dragon deck

Strategies and game play:
This card is far too easy to use to be an ex, but since its so *overly* strong it is, obviously an ex. This can be incredibly difficult to knockout because of its FABULOUS power that lets you discard cards from your hand to reduce damage done to it, 10 per card, plus its TWO resistances to electric and fighting

Combos with other cards:
Have this out while Drake's Stadium is in play and reduce even more damage

Ways to counteract it:
Heavy hitters that ARE NOT electric or fighting unless they have 'no resistance' attacks. Your best bet is to use a colorless ex (more likely to do alot more damage) like a Salamence or a Blissey

Strengths/Pros:
Where do I begin? Its power to reduce up to 40 damage, its resistance, no retreat, 70 damage attack...150 HP

Weaknesses/Cons:
There practically are none. The only thing that could be wrong with it is that you can't use its attack after using it once, but it has NO RETREAT so run like a coward if you please or just abuse its power

Variations:
Just ex rare

Artwork and aesthetics:
Like all ex Pokemon, it is gorgeous, but still annoying

Overall rating:
5/10. It needs to be a little WEAKER despite it being an ex

Haha look at you dising on this beast or should i say dragon? Well u gave it a low rating but i didnt really like your reason hun. I mean sure its a beast. But you forgot about 2 cards that are used alot in metagame. Battle frontear, and cessation crystal. These 2 cards can also counter it. Which would kill off his body and hurt him. Also crystal shard could hurt him. Tho its cute how you used Blissey as a counter lol xD LOVE YA

Yeah, too bad my rockin Blisseys cant kill it in one shot! Urg! 4 energies to do 60?! Stupid! Well, I suppose its better for all the overpowered dragons that are constantly made that have mass HP...*sigh* Besides, I dont feel like bringing up a bunch of combos for this cheap card like you like to do for EVERYTHING. Youre better at it, you do it! XP love you too
