What do you guys think of these cards? I think out of all cards, Quaquaval seems to be the most interesting one here because of its ability. On the other hand, all of the ex Pokemon cards seem to be not too good because Mimikyu ex is just underpowered & has low HP, Lucario ex is not hitting anything unless it is weakness, and Ampharos ex is just too hard to set up because it is a Stage-2 Pokemon. However, I think Ampharos ex still has some chance to see some play because we still have the ‘Dynamotor’ Flaaffy. Let’s just see how these cards will perform in the format.
