3. Tapu Koko GX
Many players argue that Tapu Koko GX isn’t the strongest playing card in Pokemon TCG. While it may not have any resistance, unlike many other GX units, Tapu Koko doesn’t harbor any weaknesses either. It’s ability, known as “Sky-High Claws,” delivers a shock for 130 damage with no side effects. In comparison, ‘Tapu Thunder GX’ delivers 50 damage, multiplied by the amount of energy attached to all those Pokemon the player is opposing.
A force to be reckoned with, Thundurus is a player-favorite and is used in many tournaments. With attacks like “Headlock” that require a flip of a coin, either option helps you win against your opponent. If you get heads, the attack will do 30 + 30 damage, and if you get tails, your opponent’s active Pokemon becomes paralyzed!
1. Mega Ampharos
With a whopping HP of 220, at number one, we have the Mega Amphorus. This lighting type Pokemon is equipped with an extremely powerful attack known as “Exavolt”. Though its speed isn’t up to par with a meager 45 stat due to its bulk, it is a great card to be played as a defense against an attacker.
