One of the hyped cards from Legend Maker. Fire Remedy
helps against all the Special Conditions in this format.
Overrun does a total of 50 damage, which is good for the
cost. You can do 20 damage to a Benched Pokemon so that
any Stage 2 which has 120 HP or below will be in range
of a KO from Flame Swirl.
Unlimited - ER, SER, the usual stuff eats this alive.
Modified - Good against SMP (Scizor/Metagross/Pidgeot)
decks, since it OHKOs all the Pokemon in it. Should do
good against most other stuff too. 100 damage for 3
energy is cool. Look for it to win some tournaments. 4/5
Limited - If you get Growlithe of course take it! EXes
are jawesome in this format. 5/5
I'd never play any ex cards here because this format is
pretty unpredictable and all.
ex's aren't safe on your bench, most of them require
alot of energy and get ER'ed. this one however, has an
attack for 2 energy but it doesn't do much damage, in
comparison to sneasel, for example.
the second attack however, does a 100 solid damage.
the problem though is it will most likely get ER'ed some
time and after that arcanine ex is bait.
weakness to water is ... veeery bad.
blastoise + suicune ex is a top deck in unlimited.
Overall, it is a nice card, but too bad it's an ex...
This card is awesome here! yet not broken.
alot of decks use 120 HP stage 2 pokemon.
thus 100 damage is just 20 damage short of being wow.
I really like the first attack though, 30 damage and 20
to a benched poke is awesome for only 2 energy. the body
is cool too, and water decks are rarely seen nowadays.
if you get arcanine fast enough, you can do the 20
damage to your opponent's future 120HP pokemon on the
A combo that comes to mind is delcatty+huntail+arcanine
which will probably be good but not really outstanding.
we have a winner!
growlithe is a common card and this stage 1 has 120 HP!
also, It's pokebody keeps it from getting knocked out,
and even the nasty misdreavous in this set will not be a
just keep attaching energy to RK9 ex, and do it's first
attack a lot.
once you have 4 energy do 100 damage for a quick kill.
or just keep doing 30 + 20 if the pokemon only has -30
HP left from previous attacks. Torkoal in this set
supports arcanine ex really good, getting it most likely
turn 2 for you.
it's a little bit dissappointing there is so much water
pokes in this set which keeps it from being a every-game
if you don't face water though, you'll probably win
unless you get arcanine too late in play.
Arcanine ex (Legend
The Fire lovin Underdogg
This wil put an end to all those PMS* : P decks. Not
really sure it will easily K.O. PMS*:P decks but they
still will see play. And besides were I live Gator ex is
quite popular so let's wait and find out.
Unlimited: Well 120 is nice being a stage two, but being
an ex is not to good in this format.
But on the other hand it's attacks are nice 30 and 20 to
the bench. It's second attack is nice a solid 100 for
three might seem much cause ER and SER are around. Maybe
you could use it togheter with Entei from Neo Revalation
to power it up quick. But with all the Suicune ex/Blastoise
decks being played it's still risky.
Rating : 2.5/5
Modified: Could actually work here. Sinds the
pre-release I have come up with a deck it might fit in.
What I mean is together with Delcatty and Huntail. For
those that don't know what they do Huntail can search
out a React Energy so that Delcatty can switch it to
Arcanine ex to do a solid 100 each turn. But the point
here is you can go on with that for four turns and run
out of React.
So ill try to work on this a little but for now it's
still a great card. ; ).
Rating : 4/5
Limited: Amazing card here with a power for healing will
stop those annoying auto-sleep/poison pokes like
Bellsprout and Tentacool (not to mention Misdreavus).
Two for 30 and bench damage is sexy. 120 is hard to kill
(want you don't run in to water). So wat I wanted to say
is once you get it on the field you keep healing to
survive, killing everything that's dangerous with Flame
Swirl and with Overun you can kill benched pokemon .
