EX Dragon is the title for the third expansion in the EX Series of Pokemon Trading Card Game. It was initially released in Japan as Rulers Of The Heavens, the third expansion of the Pokemon Card Game ADV Era. It's based on Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire and features Generation III Pokemon.
The Japanese expansion was released on June 25, 2003; the English expansion was published on November 24, 2003. Thanks to the 97 cards included in the Pokemon-e TCG EX Dragon expansion, you can use many different strategies with your Pokemon TCG decks. These cards can be used to help you create your strategies. For some exciting battle strategies, combine the EX Dragon trading card with EX Ruby and Sapphire trading cards!
EX Dragon, as the name implies, contains powerful Dragon-type Pokemon. Most of the Pokemon TCG's dragons are Colorless-type Pokemon, and no Pokemon is currently immune to Colorless-type attacks. Additionally, most dragons possess two resistances and a lot of hit points, so their attacks can inflict a lot of damage. Including dragons in your decks is a good idea because of their many advantages.
An example: The Dragonite ex (90/97), a Colorless-type Pokemon, is one example. It is equipped with 150 Hit Points and resistance to both Fighting-type Pokemon and Grass Pokemon. With its Call to Power Poke-Power, it can move Water and Lightning Energy from its teammates to itself. If you discard one Water Energy or one Lightning Energy, its Dragon Wave attack can do 70 damage, and its Giant Tail attack can do 120 damage if flipped a coin. Scary, huh?
Zangoose (EX Sandstorm 14/100) is a powerful counter to Dragon-type Pokemon. Zangoose can inflict 60 damage on evolved Pokemon. It is a Colorless-type Pokemon. Many Dragon-type Pokemon can be evolved and have a Weakness against Colorless-type Pokemon. Zangoose is capable of knocking out most Colorless-type dragons using just one attack.
Shedinja (11/97) can't get hurt by any Dragon-type Pokemon. Shedinja's Poke-Body prevents any damage or attacks from evolved Pokemon or Pokemon-ex. EX Dragon's dragons are all one of these two types of Pokemon. Shedinja is susceptible to Basic Pokemon, so be aware of the other Pokemon your opponent has in play.
Remember to consider Special Conditions! Special Conditions can disable dragons' Pokepowers, make them miss turns, force them to use Trainers, or even force them to retreat from the Pokemon.
You will need to discard Energy cards for many of the attacks by the Pokemon in EX Dragon. Gyarados (32/97) can remove Energy cards from Pokemon (up to two per turn in a 2-on-2 fight). There's also the possibility of Energy Removal 2 cards (EX Ruby & Sapphire 80/109). How can you attach Energy to your Pokemon if Energy is being lost in so many ways?
There are many intelligent ways to add Energy cards to your hand in EX Dragon. Vibrava (22/97), Quick Charge attack allows you to move up three basic Energy cards from your deck to the hand. This includes the Trainer card Lady Outing (EX Ruby, Sapphire, 83/109).
Torkoal's Power Generation allows you to put basic Energy cards from your discard pile back into your hand. Magneton's (35/97) Magnetic Field Poke-Power lets you move up two basic Energy cards from the discard pile to your hand.
If you discard one card, you can also move them into your hand. Energy Recycle System (84/97) is a new Trainer that allows you to either take one card out of your discard pile and place it in your hand or three cards out of your discard pile to put in your deck.
You can attach Energy cards to more than one Pokemon once you have them in your hand.
