Flareon EX
 
Unlimited- Blastoise and Feraligatr KO Rating 1/5
 
Modified- When combed with Ariados from UF this card can do 70 damage for 1 energy and possibly 20 more on a burn flip. Rating 4/5
 
Limited- This is a pretty decent EX in limited events, the power causes 2 special conditions which can change the game in limited, and it does 30 damage for 2 energies and reduces damage next turn by 20. Its 2nd attack is decent also, 70 damage for 3 energies attached, but you must take 10 damage, a small price to pay since most cards you will face in limited has 70 hp or less. Rating 4/5

Flareon EX - Deltas Species...

Ahhh, the card that runs the Flariados deck, and several eevelution engines!! I like starting here!

110 HP, 1 retreat cost...both good for a stage 1 EX

Pokepower that makes your opponent's active Burned and Confused...really NICE.

It is easy to see where the easy combo between this and UF Ariados came in...and it also has a few other Pokemon that scream "abuse me", such as the Power Keepers Skarmory EX (3 damage counters on you if you retreat), other Eeveultions - (Jolteon EX - to put even more damage counters on), and Absol EX from Power Keepers - move 3 damage around to set the kill.

The 110 HP is 10 more than Rayquaza * can dish out (Deoxys set), so it is an even better reason to keep this card deckworthy!

Let's see....let's rate it...

Unlimited. Surprising, I only give this a 2/5 here. The ability to combo (still) with Ariados for a 1 energy attacker, is downplayed by the numerous pokemon with 1 retreat cost in unlimited. Even though it is a stage 1, comboing with stage 1s, it may be TOO SLOW for the format! Someone will prove me wrong, I am sure!

Modified. Hmmm..let's see, a fire type, which Steelix, Metagross and Scizor just DO NOT LIKE. A power that hits, EVERYONE, and an easy combo card that can make a deck miserable that does not play switch. The weakness is not being delta, but other than that, there are two major decks that this is used in, Flariados (Flareon with Ariados UF), and Absolutions (Absol EX, Power Keepers with Flareon EX and other Eevelutions)...I am going to give this a 4.5/5....any card played by the big players must be noticed.

Limited (draft)...5/5 the only weakness is giving up 2 prizes...and the bonus of getting this baby is HUGE. Once it gets rolling, it is tough to stop, especially in a set that has pieces that are weak to fire. Take him, play him. Eevees are easy in this set too!

Great to be back a part of the COTD Team!

Flareon Ex

He’s got a decent power, good hp
And ok attacks, but unless this
Card is in a flarios deck or a deck
Using swalot (CG) his power is not
Because of the many ways of removing
Special conditions (tropios, heal energy Retreating etc). Although he may be Better against the pokemon with high retreat Cost as it would be harder for them to get rid Of the special condition.
