Sceptile Ex Tin
I had purchased this tin several weeks ago but have been unable to make the time to write this up until now, this trio of tins is too great to leave behind! You can see the Blaziken Ex Tin article here and hopefully will be seeing the Swampert Ex Tin article very shortly.
I have been keeping these tin write-ups short and sweet, because I know what everyone really wants to see is the pulls.
Sceptile Ex Tin Promo Card
Pokemon Ex promo cards from tins are very hit or miss in terms of usability. We have gotten several powerful reprints in the past such as Mewtwo Ex or Darkrai Ex but unfortunately this Sceptile Ex does not fall into that category at all.
This Sceptile Ex has a decently powerful attack in Strong Slash at 130 damage, but it costs 3 full grass energies and can’t be used back to back making it less than useful. It also has the attack Agility which is actually slightly more useful doing 20 damage and using a coin flip to stop all damage and effects to Sceptile Ex. I have seen this attack used in gimmick decks before but unfortunately as a stand alone it just doesn’t do enough damage.
Sceptile Ex has one major thing going for it though, that we have an awesome new Mega Sceptile Ex! Throwing out this Sceptile Ex (as a cheap alternative to the other one) and using Agility for a turn until you evolve it, can be very beneficial.
Like all Pokemon tins you get 4 packs as well as the just discussed promo card. In the case of a Sceptile Ex tin you get two Roaring Skies packs, one Primal Clash and one Phantom Forces; Some decent sets for sure.
If you were curious as to my pulls, here they are! Unfortunately the pulls were mediocre at best.
