Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Mewtwo EX from the Next Destinies set. This is a basic, EX, psychic type Pokemon card, with an hp of 170. It has a x2 weakness to psychic type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost. Mewtwo doesn't have an Ability but it does have two moves, the first move is called X Ball and takes two colorless energy cards and does 20 damage times the number of energy attached to Mewtwo and the defending Pokemon. Mewtwo's second move is called Psydrive and for three energy cards, two psychic and one colorless, it does 120 damage, after attacking you must remove an energy card from Mewtwo.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, this is a great card to keep on your bench and put into play at two different times, the first scenario would be if the defending Pokemon has a ton of energy cards attached to it, I would put Mewtwo in and use X Ball and hopefully knock out that defending Pokemon in one turn. The other scenario would be when I get three or more energy cards attached to Mewtwo then I would put Mewtwo in the active Pokemon spot and use Psydrive as many times as I could.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 6 out of 5 rating. This is another one of those amazing EX Cards from this set, this card is so powerful and can take down any Pokemon in two moves or less. As long as you get energy on Mewtwo fairly quickly this card is unstoppable. I would put this card in every psychic deck I would make.

I'd never use Psydrive. It weakens the first attack. I usually wait though until the first does like 150 damage, so it would be a bad idea at that time. Still a sweet card! Full rating!

I dont think no one uses psydrive. This card has to be the best card to ever come out in this game. Thats why its a staple in any deck especially a psychic deck with gardevoir.
