Pokemon Ex Cards: What Comprises the Best Pokemon Card in the World
The world of Pokémon is very Big. There was a time when Pokémon games were only found in handheld digital gaming consoles. The immense popularity of these lovable creatures made it possible for them to reach the real world, so to speak. Now, many Pokémon fans around the globe play the trading card version of the highly popular franchise.
However, just like with catching Pokémon in game consoles, you might still need to “Catch ’em all” if you’re playing the trading card version. There are cards worth using in tournaments, and then there are some that might just be good for collection purposes. However, if you want to maintain a competitive edge over your opponents, then you need the best Pokémon cards in your deck. If you’re wondering what the best Pokémon cards you should have, then you’ve come to the right place.
Rayquaza C Lv. X
When you meet Rayquaza in the Pokémon video game, most inexperienced players will have their Pokémon team wiped out before they could even say “Pikachu.” Rayquaza is a space dragon of sorts, and it has a string of attacks that can lay waste to just about any Pokémon team. That undeniable raw attack power now comes in the form of its trading card because this beast of a Pokémon comes with a Final Blowup attack that does 200 points of damage. Albeit it’s very strong, keep in mind that Rayquaza is, in fact, a glass cannon. In other words, it does have a high damaging attack, but its hit points leave something to be desired. A measly hit point count of 120 means that you still need to support him with the right cards unless you’ll easily find it in your pile of fainted Pokémon.
M Gengar EX
Like Rayquaza, Gengar is a reasonably iconic Pokémon in the Pokémon video games (but still nowhere near Pikachu, mind you). Evolve Gengar into Mega Gengar, and you’ll see just how powerful this Pokémon can be. In its trading card form, M Gengar EX releases its destructive and still playful side. It has a move called Phantom Gate which lets you select one of your opponent’s Pokémon for an attack. In other words, imagine letting Rayquaza eat its own Final Blowup attack to have it deal 200 hit points of damage on itself. M Gengar EX can easily knock even the strongest Pokémon on the field without so much as breaking a sweat.
M Blastoise EX
While Rayquaza is known to deal direct damage to just about any Pokémon it sees, M Blastoise EX is better at dealing splash damage (no pun intended). Many Pokémon fans always love to see Blastoise in action in the video games and on the show. It’s because it’s always great to see its powerful shoulder cannons in action. In its trading card version, M Blastoise EX can inflict an Area of Effect (AOE) damage to your opponent’s Pokémon team. The targeted Pokémon gets 120 hit points of damage whereas two other benched Pokémon gets an additional 30 damage as well.
If you get Rare Candy in the video games, you’ll no doubt jump for joy because now you can level up one of your Pokémon without having to grind for experience points. A similar effect applies to the trading card version of the item. The Rare Candy Card lets the player or trainer give it to a basic Pokémon of their choice. The player will then let that Pokémon evolve into a valid stage 1 or stage 2 Pokémon. However, keep in mind that you’re required to have the evolution card in your hand or else this card won’t work for that selected Pokémon. Nonetheless, the utility of the Rare Candy Card is so great that many Pokémon trading card game players even deem it the best Pokemon card in the world.
Albeit these are just four of the best Pokémon cards in the world, there are still a bunch of Pokémon cards out there that can bring your deck to life. Also, don’t disregard the seemingly useless cards because they might be the ones that can let you win a match.
