Regarding the 2013-2014 Format

Hey,
I recently returned to pokemon tcg after a 2 year break. Now i have no clue what set onwards is legal modified play for 2013 -2014. Because i dont wont to play cards that will be illegal for play in 3 months time,hence 2012-2013 is ending soon. So what set should i start from for the pokemon tcg 2013-2014 format?

Oh btw i stopped because i am in grade 12 and i recently just got my 90avg for my uni, for heath science. SOooo now i have a secured admission thus i can play again.
any whoo please help..Sad
Thank you forum.

RE: Regarding the 2013-2014 Format

i would buy sets starting at dragons exalted on, just to be safe.

people are currently speculating that the rotation will be somewhere thru BW3 (noble victories) and BW5 (Dark Explorers) so Dragons Exalted and onward you should be fine.

I personally think that were either going to rotate thru BW3, as I think it would be weird to rotate at BW4 or BW5 and make some ex's legal while other are rotated.

RE: Regarding the 2013-2014 Format

Plasma Storm is your safest bet. Not that it's likely all the way through Boundaries Crossed will be rotated, but it's the most recent set, and it's a really good one so if you need to build up a trade binder to get your hands on cards for your deck for the upcoming season, it would be a good place to start.

Chances are the format will be DEX-on or DRX-on, but the more recent the set, the safer you are.

RE: Regarding the 2013-2014 Format

Boundaries Crossed should be a safe bet, and has good cards (e.g. Computer Search) so you should be fine with that. Plasma Storm is also good.

I'd say DEX-On, because then 4 sets get rotated. Which is pretty much standard procedure.

Don't think about next format already. Still too early. Let's all take it one broken format at a time Tongue

I'd say buy some DEX. Even if it does get rotated out, you'll get tons of staples that have gotten or are getting reprint in later sets, so all remain legal.

Why exactly can't we think about the next format? This format sucks, there's no events left, and this person wants to plan ahead.

RE: Regarding the 2013-2014 Format

Since Japan will get a Reprint set with Zekrom and reshiram I will assume even they cut set´s will be before EX time, so likely 3 sets, NXD-on

4th in Portuguese Rank
6th in Nationals with Gengar/ Dialga G/ Toxycroat G and Shuntank G

RE: Regarding the 2013-2014 Format

Maybe its because how you guys make you're decklists, that ruins the experience for you guys, I do not understand how someone can win a tournament on someone else's strength, to me that is redundant and weak. So in theory when I see people who say play this decklist or play these lines for every deck it'll win for sure, no it really won't, because you haven't factored in the mentality behind it all. There is nothing wrong with this format, just accept the fact that you guys make terrible decks and move on. Start making you're own decklists.

With a rotation like this, seems like It sets a tone for the tcg (6th gen).

RE: Regarding the 2013-2014 Format

Then try to see if you can make your own completely original decklist that hasn't been used by somebody before. At least every deck archetype that's been around being played today has been made by somebody else already - and the basic (skeleton) list just gets tweaked after that.

On top of that, you're taking players that use other lists as bases and tweaking them to fit their own playstyles...and lumping them in with netdeckers. No. Just no.

As for your accusation about the format not being bad and everyone making terrible decks, I challenge you to make a deck without using any Pokemon-EX and see if you can do X-1 or better at a tourney (or X-2 at States or higher, to be fair). Oh, and you can't use Garchomp or Empoleon. Those are not original and have been done before.
This format is going to be just like last year's - bland and unfulfilling, unless some major changes happen. It has nothing to do with how people make their decklists. The format is very bleh, no getting around that.

I've decided to leave PokeBeach indefinitely. Between quitting Pokemon for good and not having much to do here, I don't really see the need to stick around anymore.
I'll miss you guys. For a fuller explanation, read my bio for more.

First of all, fix your "your vs you're" before you tell us to fix our decklists.

Second of all, this format is broken, prove to us that you can top with an "original" decklist without any of those broken-ass 180HP big basic EXs then you can start running your mouth.

Lastly, your perception of a person copying decklists being weak is also a lie. A true good player can play other people's decks and learn to adjust to their deck and playstyles and add their own flair to that existing base decklist to make it better.

Here's proof that this format is just dumb and broken. I have been playing Pokemon for almost ten years, last year I started to focus on Cardfight Vanguard and Weiss Schwarz along with some casual MTG. My Pokemon teammates requested me to assist in their Nationals playtesting. They lent me any of their decks and I can still beat them without much thinking because the deck can just carry me. The only games that I lost were games that I couldn't draw a supporter card in four to five turns. In summary, if a player like me who has been focusing on three other card games can still barge into a Pokemon game and consistently win with a deck that isn't even mine, that speaks volumes about the format's suckiness.

You're (< lol) post was incomprehensible. I read it a couple times and still couldn't understand it. From what I think, you're complaining because people don't use rogues? Just about every good strategy is somewhat obvious and has been thought of and used by multiple people. Also, we don't make terrible decklists, the format sucks. Anyone who's not living under a rock can see that. Get your facts straight, rethink your logic, and fix you are grammar before insulting us.
