Your average Venusaur is a Stage 2 Pokémon, but Venusaur-EX is a Basic Pokémon, meaning you can put it into battle right away! Both Venusaur-EX’s Poison Powder and Jungle Hammer attacks are versatile and effective. But Venusaur-EX holds even more potential—it can become a Mega Evolution Pokémon to gain unsurpassed power!
Take a look at one of the first new amazing Mega Evolution Pokémon, Mega Venusaur-EX (2/146)! This Pokémon evolves from Venusaur-EX. When you evolve it, your turn ends—so choose your timing wisely! Mega Venusaur-EX has an outstanding 230 HP, making it incredibly difficult to Knock Out. Plus, its Crisis Vine attack is unbelievably powerful, doing 120 damage and leaving the opponent’s Active Pokémon Paralyzed and Poisoned! With a withering attack like Crisis Vine, Mega Venusaur-EX is simply a phenomenal Pokémon.
Revenge is sweet with Chesnaught (14/146), the final Evolution of Chespin. When it’s in the Active position, its Spiky Shield Ability puts 3 damage counters on the Attacking Pokémon every time it gets hit. Chesnaught is also tough to Knock Out thanks to its Touchdown attack, which does 90 damage and heals Chesnaught for 20 damage.
The Stage 2 Delphox (26/146) is extraordinary in a number of ways. This Fire-type Pokémon is capable of doing massive damage with its Blaze Ball attack: 50 damage plus 20 more for each Fire Energy attached to it. Plus you’ll have no problem getting Energy (and many other cards) from your deck with its Mystical Fire Ability, which allows you to draw until you have 6 cards in hand once per turn!
Joining Venusaur-EX is the awesome Blastoise-EX, a powerful Basic Pokémon that can quickly turn the tide of battle. With 180 HP and two strategic attacks, Blastoise-EX can be both powerful and disruptive. But that’s only part of the story—as your opponent will discover when Blastoise-EX becomes an even more powerful Mega Evolution Pokémon!
Like Mega Venusaur-EX, the powerful Mega Blastoise-EX (30/146) has only one attack, but it has the potential to be a game changer. Its tremendous Hydro Bombard attack does 120 damage to your opponent’s Active Pokémon plus 30 damage to 2 of your opponent’s Benched Pokémon! Waste no time in getting Mega Blastoise-EX into action so you can start damaging the Pokémon your opponent is trying to set up on the Bench!
Greninja (41/146), the final Evolution of Froakie, is a great option with its low attack cost, which gives it the speed to let you attack right after you put it into play. Mist Slash does 50 damage for only 1 Water Energy, and ignores Resistance and Weakness. Then, do stealthy damage with Greninja’s Water Shuriken Ability—when you discard a Water Energy from your hand, you can place 3 damage counters on 1 of your opponent’s Pokémon!
The Fairy-type Xerneas-EX is sure to be useful in Fairy-type decks. Use its Break Through attack to hit the Defending Pokémon for 60 damage and a Benched Pokémon for another 30! Then go for the Knock Out with X Blast, which does an imposing 140 damage. You can’t use X Blast two turns in a row, so choose your timing carefully!
