done to Registeel ex by attacks
is reduced by 10 (after applying Weakness and Resistance).
(MMC) Steel Wave 
20 damage to each of your opponent’s Benched Pokémon
that are of the same type as
the Defending Pokémon. (Don’t apply Weakness and
Resistance for Benched Pokémon)
The last of the Regi-trio is
naturally a Basic Pokémon ex. As a basic,
Registeel ex can be put into
play without any real effort. Its 90 HP would be good for a
basic that doesn’t Evolve… except
that as a Pokémon ex, it really could use another 10 (even
though it would make it vulnerable to Desert Ruins). This
one is a Metal Pokémon, which is one of the best types in
the game-little Resistance and a Weakness to Metal is
becoming more widespread… and did I forget the wonderful
damage reducing property of Metal Energy cards?
Unfortunately, the Fire Weakness most Metal Pokémon
have is pretty bad in Modified
right now (though no big deal in Unlimited). At least
Blaziken ex could OHKO it anyway. Moving on to Resistance,
we actually find one! Yeah! Grass Pokémon
don’t tend to do a lot of direct
damage anyway, but what little they do will be almost
completely shut down by a combination of Metal Energy and
natural Resistance. Finally, we have an average retreat of
two, but since this Pokémon must utilize special Energies,
its not quite as “average” as it
would be fore something that made use of abundant normal
Energies for attacks. Plan around it.
Exoskeleton is a solid effect. Almost acts like a fifth
Metal Energy, at least in terms of damage reduction. Not a
bad Poké-Body, but it’s a good thing this is a Metal
Pokémon-reducing damage by just 10 is rarely enough to make
is pretty solid. While it doesn’t do the base 60 of its
brethren, 50 for (MMC) is still 10 above what you paid for,
and on top of that, you get a nifty bench hitting effect.
Against most decks (other than Firestarter ones), the main
hitter is usually going to be matching half the bench in
type. Still, it’s not 100% reliable.
these abilities are still pretty good-damage reduction means
more time for bench damage to accumulate.
I am planning on trying this card in my standard “Gojira”
(something big and nasty active with Sandstorm
Xatus on the bench for repeated
healing) deck. Other than that, I can’t really come up with
anything… maybe in ScepTecH?
2/5-Like Regirock, in its own
deck (healing and Trainer disruption), it has potential, but
is not apt to be the anything more than a second tier deck
3/5-As a Gojira variant, it might have a chance.
1/5-Only used for stalling. Now, if you draft with a set
that contains metal (or do a Starter Deck draft with the
Jirachi starter from Hidden
Legends), it becomes a 3/5-hard to set up, but will likely
win you the game when it happens.
3.25/5-Gojira variants tend to be stronger here.
had either of the other Regi’s
Poke-Bodies and/or 10 more HP, it could have been a real
