Flygon ex (DF)
Modified
Flygon ex brings back the deadly "Sand Damage" Poke-Body from Dark Tyranitar back to modified. As anyone who played this format will recall, this Poke-Body was one of the best in the game when combined with the right cards.

Unfortunately, one of the most necessary assets to abuse this Poke-Body was Ancient Technical Machine [Rock], a card that has rotated out. The absence of this card turns a near broken Poke-Body into only a decent one. Now, your best chance at abusing Sand Damage is Espeon ex.

Its attack obviously works in combination with the Poke-Body, but unfortunately, by the time you have this Pokemon out, your opponent's Pokemon will probably be evolved too. This means your opponent's benched Pokemon will not have taken Sand Damage. Regardless, PPC 80 is a very solid attack by itself.

Flygon ex d benefits highly from having a very playable Flygon d. Flygon d can speed up your ability to use Psychic Pulse.

A fast Flygon ex d will win you games. If your opponent has not evolved many of his Pokemon, Sand Damage and Psychic Pulse damage will add up very quickly.

Flygon ex d may look extremely broken, but keep in mind there are not many ways to abuse Sand Damage like there used to be. However, with 150 HP, no weakness, a solid attack, AND a playable non-ex evolution, we obviously have a very strong card.
Modified: 4/5

Unlimited
Here we can play ATM [Rock] (although not on Flygon ex d, which hurts), and can abuse cards like Aerodactyl (Fossil), to keep our opponent's Pokemon at basics. Still, a very slow, Energy Removeable target.
Unlimited: 2/5

Limited
Stage2's are very weak in limited events, as you not only have to be lucky enough to pull the basics and stage one's, but then hope to draw into each of the evolutions. Although this is about as sick of an attack and Poke-Body as you could get in limited, being a Stage2 drastically weakens it.
Limited: 1.5/5

Flygon ex d

Flygon ex d is one of the brand spankin’ new Stage 2 EXs from Dragon Frontiers. 150 HP is great, and no weakness is amazing. Sand Damage is one of my favorite Poke-Bodies of all time, and Psychic Pulse is quite strong for just 3 energy. Will definitely fit well into decks that already run Flygon d from Holon Phantoms.

Unlimited: Sand Damage is amazing in Unlimited. Baby Pokemon and Sneasel are gone within a matter of turns. Unfortunately though, when you’re an EX that takes 3 energy to attack, don’t expect to actually attack any time soon, as ER and SER are going to eat you up. Stick with Dark Tyranitar, as it can use Double Rainbow Energy and Scramble Energy, while still having Sand Damage support. 2/5

Modified: I don’t like it much here. The only basic based decks are Latios/Latias and Lunasol, and those decks both suck these days. You’re mostly going to be dealing with evolutions, so Sand Damage is going to be useless. You might pick off a Castform every once in a while, but that’s not really worth it. Maybe combine it with Unown E to drag Castforms and Magnemites out of your opponent’s hand, leaving them to eventually hang to Sand Damage. The attack is pretty much ensuring a 2hko, which will just leave you even in the prize exchange, as you’re probably getting 2hkoed as well (or even 1 by things like Latios/Latias* or Lugia ex). 3/5

Limited: If you get this out in limited, it should be impossible to lose. Psychic Pulse is easily OHKOing anything, and Sand Damage will pretty much dominate all of your opponents little Delta basics. 5/5

My reviews and ratings are for Modified only.

Flygon ex Dragon Frontiers

Modified 4/5 - It has a good attack, along with a powerful Poke-Body. This card reminds me of Dark Tyranitar with Sand Damage, but its attack does 80 raw damage consistently, for the most part. That's good. Also, there are ways to easily accelerate Energy (Flygon delta or Flygon ex from Legend Maker). It is vulnerable to fast decks that runs Cessation Crystals, but Flygon ex from Dragon Frontiers should be a serious contender for City Championships.

Limited 5/5 - If I have the Basic and stage 1 needed, then this is a no brainer for me to build a deck around it.

WOW! This is one of the best cards in DF.
I am really tired though so it may not be a great review.
 
Unlimited 1.5/5
Maybe I am being a little harsh, BUT stage 2 ex's usually don't go over well here.
 
Modified: 4.5/5
WOW! Just WOW! This may be an overrated card but it is truly amazing at the same time. OK 80 for 3 is already great, BUT then 10 to every bench is awesome. Its body also does 10 to all basics between turns. WOW! AND its stats are PHENOMENAL!!!!!!! NO WEAKNESS! AND 150 HP!!!!! Snap!!!! Psychic is a pretty good type right now with this and Banette ex. Both Banette ex and Flygon ex d. should be fighting for the best psychic Pokemon in the game right now. Banette ex is SLIGHTLY better IMO but none the less Flygon should get TONS of credit.
EXPECT to see this at cities and probably states too.
 
Limited 5/5
If you get all the stages RUN IT. Simple as that. It is too good to pass up in limited.
Until next time homies! Peace! AND LATE Happy Halloween. (Sorry I didn't review yesterday.)

Flygon ex from EX Dragon Frontier.

Flygon ex is one of the most powerful ex's in Dragon Frontier. Sand Damage is back and is better than ever especially because Flygon ex's attack can also damage the bench. Not to mention it does 80 damage to the active pokemon. 150HP is awesome for a stage 2 ex pokemon and Flygon doesn't even have a weakness.

Unlimited: 2/5
Modified: 4/5
Limited: 5/5
