2005 World
Lugia ex

Ahh this card is easy to write about since it's used in so many people's decks. All you need is a Blastoise ex in play, a W Energy, a Holon's Electrode, and you OHKO every Pokemon under the sun. Its Poke-power is helpful early in the game, since if your opponent hits Lugia, their energy could go back to their hand. In the mid-late game, after Lugia ex is able to attack every turn, the power might do more hurt than help, since energy will be going back to their hand that could've just gone to the discard pile when you KOed the pokemon with 200 damage next turn. Then again it does make the opponent's hand more copycattable, and if you Admin them their deck will be more diluted with energy, which could help if they're trying to draw into Pokemon/trainers and not energy.

Unlimited - If you're gonna use a Blastoise deck, just use the Base set version. And don't use Lugia ex, use Suicune ex. I mean stuff used in unlimited usually has lower HP than modified. 2/5

Modified - Very common in LBS decks. Using 2 of them would probably be best. Use it to KO anything with 110 HP and above, and use Steelix ex to snipe the bench at things that have 100 HP or less. 5/5

Limited - Pretty good. Can stop your opponent from getting enough energy to keep attacking. But taking 3 turns to charge up is pretty bad. 3/5

Reviews are ratings are for Modified only.

Lugia ex - 4.5/5 200 damage basically One Hit KO anything - and with Blastoise ex and Holon's Electrode or Holon's Magneton, it's not hard to fulfill its attack requirements. Nevertheless, your constant use of Energy Rain and 100 HP as an ex Pokemon don't last very long, so make sure you make the most of it while you have it alive.


Lugia EX

Overview: Ah Lugia EX, one of my favorites for rainbow deck usage ;x. The Body in my opinion is pretty useless. You get to flip a coin if Lugia EX is active and damaged by an opponent's attack, and if heads, choose 1 energy attached the attacking pokemon, and return it to your opponent's hand. I find it useless because the next turn, your opponent can jusr re-add the energy back, and nothing is lost -_-. The attack is beastly, but costly at the same time as well. Elemental Blast (sounds so famillar from Neo Genesis ;/), does 200 damage, but you need to discard 1 fire, 1 water, and 1 lightning energy. Even for 200 damage, I don't know if it is worth it. 100HP is low in my opinion as well for an ex, plus it has the disadvantage of if it is knocked out, your opponent gets 2 prizes. Weakness to psychic makes Gardevoir a problem, but does anyone even play Garde anymore since it was rotated out of Modified? ;x. Resistance to fighting will come in handy and prolong the basically inevitable knockout, as will the retreat of 1. All in all, I would only suggest playing it if you are running a rainbow deck, but even then there are better cards out there.

Unlimited: Would take way too much time to get all powered up, and too much of a discard cost here as well. There are much better ex cards to be played in Unlimited. 1/5

Modified: 1/5

Draft: 2.5/5

My name is Lugia ex
Your Pokemon won’t last
I wipe everthing out
With my Elemental Blast

Unlimited: Nope ER and SER wil destroy it.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: Ahh the key card in BSL a deck that becoming very popular. In fact the deck is quit consistent but very expensive. Sure it can deal with a lot in today’s Modified, but nothing is unbeatable. There are some cheaper decks that can beat like it Rock Lock or Typhlosion.

Overall it’s great in BSL but worse on it’s own.

Rating : 2.5/5

Limited: Sure take it 3 for 200 >_< = Kill everthing. You need to discard that’s a downside here but still it’s 200.

Rating : 2/5
