    Thanks so much :)
    Yes they can. They are both from the same evolution line and type does not matter. You can evolve a Dark Deino into a Dragon Zweilos etc.

    There are many variants which use Mewtwo EX. Mewtwo EX is one of the most universal attackers so he can be splashed into any deck. If you want a deck which is pure psychic you could try Mewtwo EX with Gardevoir since she provides an extra psychic so 1 attached counts as 2, 2 counts as 3 etc.
    Another pure Psy deck is Quad Sigilyph with Mewtwo-EX.
    Other Mewtwo variants are Landorus,Mewtwo-EX with Garabador, Keldeo-EX/Mewtwo-EX/Blastoise and Darkrai-EX/Mewtwo-EX.
    It's all up to you what deck you wish to play but having 1-2 Mewtwo-EX is going to help whatever deck you plan to use.

      You reveal them to him face up. Always. There's a different wording used where your opponent will discard a card of yours without them knowing what it is, and it involves the word "random" or some variant of it.

        That is a fake made by aschefield101 of DeviantArt.

        The actual full-art Lugia EX looks like this:



        and the regular Lugia EX looks like this:

          Thing is, there are very few Lugia cards that are actually Water type cards, because Lugia's typing in the games is actually Water/Psychic.

          Also, there are two types of "EX/ex" cards. One is Pokemon ex (note the lowercase and italics of the "ex" - this is key to the difference between ex/EX Pokemon), and these were printed from EX: Ruby & Sapphire until EX: Power Keepers. The other is Pokemon (note that this is in all-caps and a picture is actually used), and these have been printed in all sets since Black & White: Next Destinies was released in English as well as the corresponding Japanese sets.

          A full list of Pokemon ex:

          http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pokemon_ex

          A full list of Pokemon :

          http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon-EX_%28TCG%29

          The lists include the types of each ex/EX card as well as what sets versions of it were printed in.

            Are you playing just among friends? If you are, Walrein is the most destructive.

            But if you're playing in official tournaments and leagues, then Vanilluxe would be the only play legal option of those two.

            Does Mewtwo-EX come in a booster pack or it's only available by the tin?

              It's the same Mewtwo EX that you would get from a tin?

                yep, but it is pretty rare to get one of those, i would say just get the tin because it would be cheaper than buying all kinds of booster packs and not getting a mewtwo EX. MEWTWO EX ONLY COMES OUT IN NEXT DESTINIES EXPANSION BOOSTER PACKS!!!!

                quoted from bulbapedia:

                ''Mewtwo (Japanese: ミュウツーEX Mewtwo EX) is a Psychic-type Basic Pokémon-EX card. It is part of the Next Destinies expansion.''

                these are the graphics

                Just a note, the two on the left are the booster pack pulls, while the one on the right is the tin.

                Absolutely correct. The left one is more common than the middle one, because the general hierarchy for Pokemon card rarities in current sets goes something like this:

                Lowest < Highest

                Common < Uncommon < Rare < Holo Rare < Ultra Rare (Normal EX cards and Ace Specs fall here) < "Double" Ultra Rare - just guessing on the name for this one (Full Art cards) < Secret Rare (The cards with a number outside the "collector's number range - ie: the Pikachu from Black & White numbered as 115/114 and the Charizard from Boundaries Crossed numbered something as 136/135).

                If I use Garbodor's Double Ducts attack and when I flip the coin, I get 2 tails. Does that mean that my attack does 0 damage?

                  what happens when both me and my opponent have no basics in our hand at the beginning of our game, do we both get an extra card?

                  Actually, neither player gets to draw an extra card because neither player had a Basic.

                  Depends on who you're playing against and which one's you're looking at.

                  Something like Crobat. The one with the draw a card ability and the 40 damage poisoning attack that does 4 damage counters instead of 1.

                  What were you thinking for support? Crobat is cool in theory, but you need some support for it.

                  Got any suggestions for support? I just restarted the TCG since like a month ago, don't have a lot of knowledge of what cards are good support for it yet.

                  I'm still working out the answers myself as I just recently built a deck based around that Crobat (Crobat PLS), but I do know that my current build in the Deck Reviewing forum is definitely not the answer.
