Hey all,

Today's card is Espeon EX from EX Unseen Forces

Hmm... very interesting card. Useful against Slowking and Raindance decks - mostly Slowking. Allows you to devolve the benched Slowking and use your trainers to wipe out that Slowpoke before he has the chance to evolve once again. Snap tail is a beautiful baby sniper and Psyloop has potential. Players like Poke tools in unlimited and this attack does 60 plus 30 more for each trainer your opponent has in play, so definitely has some high potential. Just one trainer on your opponents Poke means you can one hit destroy a Vileplume EX. Energy removal can set him back a little bit... but isn't going to prove fatal to him. Free retreat is beautiful and his weakness isn't so bad. Run him with a few Double colorless energies, some form of scoop up (probaby Mr. Brinney's Compassion) and some backup power and I can see this guy doing some major damage. Just watch out for Eevee's quick death.

Unlimited Rating 3.5/5

Power: Just like Umbreon EX, Espeon EX’s Poké-Power only works when you evolve from your hand. If you have Espeon EX in your deck, you may not want to put in Eevee [UF] which allows you to evolve Eevee with an evolution card from your deck (since that doesn’t count as from your hand). Put in one with a better attack, like Eevee [AQ] that lets you attach extra energy to it or Eevee [SS] with an attack that allows you to take up to 3 evolution cards that evolve from Eevee into your hand. Unfortunately, if you’re playing Modified, Eevee [UF] is your only choice right now. “Devo Flash” is just like ATM Rock from Hidden Legends. But I really don’t see this as a card you’d put in a Rock-Lock deck. “Devo Flash” is a really good power. You can kill stuff on your opponent’s bench without even attacking (and you can even do it from your own bench). But that’s just the best scenario. If you don’t knock out that benched Pokémon, you could use a Pokémon Reversal to finish it off before your opponent evolves it next turn. The best thing about its power is it works very well with its first attack…

Attacks: For 2 energy, “Snap Tail” can do 30 damage to any of your opponent’s Pokémon, maybe even one that you just devolved with “Devo Flash.” “Psyloop” is just like the “Psyloop” from Xatu [DX], only it requires one more energy and the attack does 60 damage plus 30 more for each trainer your opponent has in play. If your opponent is playing some kind of fossil deck, you may have a major advantage. Even if they aren’t, and they have a stadium in play, and that’s it, you can do 90 damage, which is pretty good for a stage 1 Pokémon-EX, considering all its attributes, such as…

Retreat Cost and HP: 110 HP on a stage 1! This is good. Of course, there’s always Desert Ruins to worry about. If your opponent does play one, just take comfort in the fact that your Psyloop will do extra damage. Retreat cost of zero is disproportionately low for a Pokémon with 110 HP, which is a good thing.

Combinations: Super Scoop Up, Hyper Devolution Spray, or even Mr. Fuji or Pidgeot [EX]. Try to evolve it twice to use its amazing Poké-Power. Can’t really think of any good combos (except for with itself).

Unlimited: Fossils are legal here. However, not as many stadiums are played in this format. The most common Pokémon tool is Strength Charm/Plus Power, which are discarded at the end of your opponent’s turn. “Psyloop” won’t help you much here. A lot of really good Pokémon in this format are weak to Psychic. If you have Double Colorless Energy, you can KO a baby on the first turn with “Snap Tail.” If your opponent is playing a “Big Basic Pokémon” deck, “Devo Flash” won’t help. This card is playable. 2.9/5

Modified: With the reintroduction of fossils in Eidolon Forest, this could be a very good card. And Espeon EX will most likely still be legal if Xatu [DX] is rotated out of Modified. This means there will still be a disincentive to put trainer cards in play. This Pokémon has so much going for it. No retreat cost, good Poké-Power, and a great attack to go with that power. 4.7/5

Limited: There are no stadiums in this set, but 40% of the trainers in this set are Pokémon Tools, so, “Psyloop” can be very useful. Weakness to psychic is not a problem here. Remember, its power doesn’t work if you evolve with Eevee’s Poké-Power. If you want to get Espeon EX out really fast, Prof. Elm’s Training Method and Pokéball are in this set. This card combos with itself (Devo Flash+Snap Tail).This is one of the best cards in UF. 4.9/5

Espy EX

Unlimited:
actually pretty good here, devolve a slowking/dark vileplume/vileplume ex is pretty nice. also, with the extensive use of focus band and gold berry here, psyloop will easily do 90 damage. but.. espeon ex is a bit energy expensive, 3 energy leaves you weak to ER, which is a big disadvantage, it has zero retreat cost, which is pretty good, it's weakness is not a problem, however, being psychic is kinda bad because sneasel and darkness have that darn restistance.
it's first attack can KO baby pokemon at the bench instantly btw, thats nice :)
3.5/5

Modified:
probably even nicer here, as you can devolve a kingdra, houndoom or other useful support pokemon.
it's psyloop attack does excellent damage for only 3 energy, but I don't think you will do 90+ damage easily because tools and such aren't that common. stadium cards are though, but when your opponent will actually play a stadium, you'll probably have to counter it, as your opponent won't play stadiums to thin their deck at the cost of receiving 90 damage.
it's first attack is great here too, 30 to the bench is nice, you can KO wounded pokemon, or key pokemon.
0 retreat is awesome!, being psychic weak is a problem though.
4/5

Limited:
it is awesome here, eevee is just amazing, and you can get it out whenever you want by attaching a Psychic energy card to Eevee, espeon ex in limited is a beast, a solid 60 damage for only 3 energy. and 30 to the bench for only 2. when espeon is almost knocked out, retreat for free and keep it on your bench until you need your final blow.
it's weaknesses doesn't hurt as there are only a few psy pokemon in this set.
4.5/5

I know you know that I know, but I don't know if you know that I know that you don't know what you don't know. You know?
*Psychic joke... ok, a bad one*

Espeon ex (Unseen Forces #102)

Type: Psychic
Good type to use lots of potential to work with.

HP: 110
Fantastic for a Stage 1.

Stage of Evolution: Stage 1
Eevee is needed, but he can search for any evo anyways, so...

PokeBody/PokePower: Poke-Power:
Devo Flash
"Once during your turn, when you play Espeon ex from your hand to evolve 1 of your Pokemon, you may choose 1 Evolved Pokemon on your opponent's Bench, remove the highest Stage Evolution card from that Pokemon, and put it back into his or her hand."

Attacks:

[2x any] Snap Tail
Choose 1 of your opponent's Pokemon. This attack does 30 damage to that Pokemon. (Don't apply Weakness or Resistance for Benched Pokemon.)

[P][2x any] Psyloop {60+}
Does 60 damage plus 30 more damage for each Trainer card your opponent has in play.


Weakness: Psychic
Only worries about his friends...

Resistance: (none)
(This is getting rediculous!)

Retreat Cost: (none!)
Free, be free! Come and go as you please!

Rarity: Holo Rare
Worth the effort.

The Positive:
30 guarateed damage to any single Pokemon is good, and 60 damage is better, unless your opponent has Trainers in play. Removing an Evolution is good, and you can hurt that same Pokemon for 30 damage afterwards is a really good combo.

The Negative:
The only real downside is that it's hard to get the opponent to keep out a Trainer card to use the boost to his Psyloop.

Unlimited:
Very nice, and with 2 useful Eevees that can search him out, he's incredibly playable.
4.5/5.0

Modified:
He works well here too. His Pkoe-Power is highly useful, even if it only works once.
4.0/5.0

Limited:
One of the most usable Evos in this format. He's well worth using here.
5.0/5.0
 
TR Brian Hey guys i'm back with another review. I was away at some delta species prereleases ^_^

Today we have for you guys one of the evolutions of the cute little dog named eevee. Espeon ex, now this card has 110HP, goodstable attacks, and yes NO RETREAT COST. Now it is turn two material definately becasue hello stage one ex.It also has an awesome poke-power which allows you to choose one of your opponents pokemon and send the highest evolution to their only when you evolve eevee to espeon ex from your hand >_<. So yes that scratches off you wanting to use the eevee power which lets your search for the evolved doggie for the energy type that you attached.

Unlimited:Well here once again theres much better cards. 2/5

Modified:Here he gets a 3/5

Limited:If you draft him here with two eevee's you are ok cause i think you won 5/5 here.
