Swampert ex is usually comboed with Swampert RS(the one with the
pokemon power). His attacks are good for the cost, doing 100
damage for 5 basic energy. His other attack can pick off the
bench and the bench's energy. Since it is fighting type it
protects Swampert RS's weakness which is lightning(aka Ampharos
Unlimited - I use this in my fighting/psychic deck. The psychic
pokemon I use in it is of course base gastly. 1/5
Modified - This card is ok to counter Lightning in the Swampert/Suicune
ex decks that are around. 3/5
Limited - You probably won't get the Mudkips and Marshtomps. 2/5
Overview: This card has been called the Blaze ex killer. For 1
colorless energy, Hyper Pump does 20 damage plus 20 more for every
basic energy attached to Swampert ex. A few backdraws being the
ones used to pay for the attack don't count, and you can only add
upto 80 more damage. Then for 1 water energy and 2 colorless,
Crushing Wave lets you choose 1 of your opponent's Pokemon and the
attack does 40 damage. Then you get to flip a coin and if it's
heads, your opponent discards an energy attached to that Pokemon.
With 150HP, 1 weakness of Grass is VERY nice, while a retreat of 3
is a little high. And of course ebing an ex Pokemon, if it's k0ed,
your opponent gets 2 prizes, which is bad.
Modified: Being able to kill Blaze ex is always a nice touch, and
the high HP is also cool. I expect a few archtypes with this card
to surface if they haven't already. 3/5
Draft: If you can draft all the forms(hint hint, you can't XD),
then play it. But since ya can't, :( I have to give it the old
