Sneasel ex (Japanese: ニューラ ex Nyula ex) is a Darkness-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.
  Double Scratch
Flip 2 coins. This attack does 10 damage times the number of heads.
    Beat Up
Flip a coin for each of your Pokémon in play (including Sneasel ex). This attack does 20 damage times the number of heads.


Each of the Pokémon-ex in EX Ruby & Sapphire seem to be based on popular cards from pre-EX Series sets. This card in particular appears to be based on Neo Genesis Sneasel, a card which was banned in some formats due to the power of its Beat Up attack. What balances out this version from being overly effective is that it requires an extra Colorless Energy, and is on a Pokémon-ex card (which are worth two prizes when Knocked Out by the opponent).


Double Scratch is a variant of Scratch, a move in the Pokémon games that Sneasel can learn. Beat Up is a move in the Pokémon games that Sneasel can learn.
