Hitmonchan ex (Japanese: エビワラー ex Ebiwalar ex) is a Fighting-type Basic Pokémon-ex card. It is part of the EX Ruby & Sapphire expansion.

Card text

When Pokémon-ex has been Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.
  Steady Punch
Flip a coin. If heads, this attack does 10 damage plus 10 more damage.
    Sky Uppercut
This attack's damage is not affected by Resistance.


Each of the Pokémon-ex in EX Ruby & Sapphire seem to be based on popular cards from pre-EX Series sets. This card is less similar to any previously released cards than most, but it may be partially based on Base Set Hitmonchan, with Steady Punch being a less broken variation on Jab, and Sky Uppercut being an improved Special Punch, as these attacks have the same energy requirements.


Sky Uppercut is a move in the Pokémon games that Hitmonchan can learn. Steady Punch is an attack that first appeared on Machoke from Expansion Sheet 2.
