Beautiful card:
I'm more of a set collector than I am at playing the game. I'll give it a try though.

Game use:
Mega Primal Groudon EX is a gangster worthy Primal Reversion Fighting Type Pokemon with a 240 HP. It has a Grass Weakness and a usual hefty 4-Retreat Cost. It has One Attack and One Ancient Trait Skill.

Groudon has long been described in mythology as the Pokémon that raised lands and expanded continents. It came as a savior to people who had been suffering from terrible floods. Groudon has the power to scatter rain clouds and make water evaporate with light and heat.

Said to have expanded the lands by evaporating water with raging heat as it battled titanically with Kyogre. Legends tell of its many clashes against Kyogre, as each sought to gain the power of nature. This legendary Pokémon is said to represent the land, even being personification of the land itself. It went to sleep in underground magma ever since it fiercely fought Kyogre long ago.

Through Primal Reversion and with nature’s full power, it will take back its true form. It can cause magma to erupt and expand the landmass of the world


Variations:
ban Graphics is the artist responsible for having illustrated Mega Primal Groudon EX 86/160. There are 3 versions: regular, full art, and promo.

Artwork and Aesthetics:
Outstanding artwork: Groudon is a red, black, grey, and white Pokémon with yellow eyes. It has white spikes on its tail and neck. It has white sharp claws on both its hand and it also has white toes. It has a greyish underbelly. It has a large tail with three sharp, white spikes appearing on the left hand side and right hand side of its tail. A black pattern also goes along its body.

As Primal Groudon, it becomes larger and has a deep crimson body. The spikes on both sides of its body, tail, jagged teeth and underbelly are black, with the spikes on the tail becoming longer and facing diagonally, instead of being straight. The four blades at the end of its tail are now split. Its sharp claws on its hands and its claws on its feet remain pure white. Both of Primal Groudon's hands bear an Omega symbol on them. The markings, some of which extend to its underbelly on its body and the Omega symbols it bears glow bright yellow as if lava is flowing inside of it, including the inside of its mouth and around its eyes, which changes to an orange red color.


Overall rating:
I give this card a general rating of 10.

This seemed to be a hot card in competitive play for awhile but has seemed to fade away. I don't quite get why.
