Pojo's Pokemon Card of the Day

Electrode ex
- Fire Red and Leaf Green

Date Reviewed: 10.08.04

Ratings & Reviews below

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  
5 is the highest rating.

Electrode ex:

Modified 2/5 - I have a problem running this card in a deck in general. The Fighting Weakness is so bad right now, plus it's an ex! Easy OHKO for the opponent.

Limited 4/5 - Definitely game-winning card. 50 damage will KO nearly all Basics in this format.
Thundachu Electrode ex

Overview: Extra Energy Bomb Pokemon-Power is generally suicide. You can knock out Electrode ex, in order to search your discard for 5 energy cards and attach them to any of your pokemon in any order you want. There are a few downfalls to this. The first is the fact that you are knocking out Electrode ex, meaning your opponent gets the prize, but because of the ex, your opponent gets 2. Could be game breaking decision. Is it worth the 5 energy? The other downfall is that you can't attach the energy to your Pokemon-Ex. A bright side however is that you can get non-basic energy. But still, IMO 5 energy isnt worth 2 prizes. Then for 1 Lightning energy and 1 colorless, Crash and Burn does 30 damage automaticly, and lets you discard as many energy as you like from ANY OF your pokemon in play, and it does 20 more damage for every energy attached. Not a bad attack considering you can discard from more than just Electrode. Weakness to Fighting(anyone notice a trend here?), and a retreat cost of 1 is not very bad. 90HP for a stage 1 ex is pretty bad. There are better ex out there.

Unlimited: Crash and Burn could probably do some good damage here from numerous pokemon. I suppose it is ok. 3/5

Modified: 2.5/5

Draft: The attack can be pretty good depending how many pokemon you can get out. The power just sucks. Ill leave it up to you. 2/5

Johnny Blaze
Electrode EX Another incarnation of an old version of Electrode. This time you lose 2 prizes instead of one and the energy cannot be placed on a Pokemon EX. Electrode EX does have 90 HP so you can run him with Desert Ruins with no drawback. His Crush and Burn attack is real efficient 2 for 70 if you decide to discard the 2 on Electrode but he has better uses than that.

Unlimited: 2/5 Probably not a safe bet here with Tyrogue but I do like its raw power with Crush and Burn.

Modified: 4/5 Team Electrode up with Firestarter Blaziken and you can be doing an avg. of 70-90 damage a turn depending on how many Blazikens you have in play. When Electrode is ready to die you could always use its suicide(Extra Energy Bomb) attack to power up the rest of your attackers. Again the ever popular Desert Ruins does not harm it. Just watch out for Fighting types.

Limited: 4/5 I thought I had the game won with Zapdos EX and then Electrode EX hit the board. I lost 2 prizes because of Zapdos being weak to Lightning. But this card is really good in draft and the Voltorbs are just as better. is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
