SALAMENCE EX:

150 without discarding energy is huge. However, discarding 5 cards is the problem. This downside can be made almost meaningless when using Salamence ex to pick up your last 2-3 prizes.

Hydro Wave will generally be less useful than Volcanic Flame, but using it repeatedly can wreck any deck.

The best thing about Salamence is its ability to utilize Holon's Castform so effectively. The worst thing is its colorless weakness, as players can use Crystal Shard to score an easy OHKO.

Modified 4/5

My name is Salamence
I am just too lame
I’ll do 150 damage
With my Volcanic Flame

Unlimited: It’s an Ex with a terrible weakness being colorless meaning Wigglytuff Ex eats this thing.

Rating : 1/5

Modified: We have a lot better things to do 150 like Latios* and Latias*. And the weakness is terrible with al the Crystal Shards around.

Rating : 2/5

Limited: If you can get it out it’s second attack can be devastating and with 160 HP it will last long.
Rating : 3/5\

Review #2 Power Keepers Salamence:

Unlimited Rating 1/5: Being a stage 2 with very high attack costs make him nearly useless in the Unlimited format.

Modified Rating 2/5: In modified if you get an exceptional start this card has the potential to excell , but needs a great supporting line.

Limited Rating 1/5: His high attack cost makes him very unusefull in limited and the constant discarding (Whether it be energy or cards from your deck).

2/21 Salamence ex PK

When the scan of this first came out, there were people both praising and bashing it. I didn't realize how good it was until I had it used against me.

4 for 150 is amazing. Although 5 cards from the top of your deck may seem like alot, it won't matter if you put yourself in a winning position. YOu don't need any energy support either, so you can launch this attack 2-3 times in a row to finish off your opponent.

Hydro Wave is also a very strong attack. I've had an opponent take 4 prizes on my benched pokemon in 2 turns to win the game. It's extremely deadly.

With the strength of Salamence decks these days, I don't think it ought to be all that hard to find a way to play this card. 160 HP makes it a pain to take down and safe from a OHKO from Lati@s*.

4/5
