Making More Memes Work — Armaldo and Chandelure

Playing through countless random versus games on the Pokemon Trading Card Game Online can be cumbersome. Needing more and more tournament tickets can be a lot, so playing the games I need to daily sometimes takes a little more motivation.

To do this, I’ve bounced around to Expanded and even Legacy, but I’ve also taken up some unorthodox decks to spice things up. These decks often turn out to be competitive, or even overshadowed, like Falinks, Lost March, Nidoqueen, and Porygon-Z that I’ve written about in the past.

Meme Decks of Choice

Lately, when tired of top-tier decks, I’ve been taking a break from the metagame to play with Armaldo and Chandelure. Chandelure is the more intriguing of the two, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I think it’s competitively viable, even on a bigger stage. Armaldo might need more work or might need to be scrapped, regardless, it’s fun.
