    2020 Standard Format Announced, Goes Into Effect Before Worlds!

    Why? When a majority of the cards are subject to rotate before Worlds, which means decks will adapt to Ultra Prism on...these sets will start to lose their value once Internationals are drawing to a close, and we know more about our August set.

    2020 Standard Format Announced, Goes Into Effect Before Worlds!

    "Starting with the 2020 season, cards from McDonald’s Collections will be legal in the Standard format if they’re functionally identical to a card that is currently legal in the Standard format. For example, Magnemite (McDonald’s Collection 2018, 8/12) is functionally the same card as Magnemite...

Choice Band and Ultra Ball, according to information given by PokeBeach forums, should be getting a reprint in...

    2020 Standard Format Announced, Goes Into Effect Before Worlds!

    The last time they did a rotation before Worlds was back in 2012 or 2013, when the Black and White set came with new rulings and actions during the 1st turns of the game. Between SP decks, Sableye, and Machamp (take out). With the new rulings that B&W brought literally broke the format with...

    Full Metal Wall in February

    Contrary Malamar would be Slowbro's nemesis or auto-loss, shy of Garbodor... Hitmontop is interesting and could work with Marshadow Gx as a pivot... Or Combine Porygon Z for a turn 2 sweep...

    New Donphan/Ursaring Prime (HG/SS-on)

    Ryley-- not bad ideas, i shall look into them. Jahikoi-- as for Rainbows, i will look into them(i took them out because i though they hadn't reprinted them) Machamp is not my main attacker, it is there to supply a potential switch, and deliver heavy damage for a couple of turns. I might...

    Emboar from Black & White (#20) [5/20]

    1. How does the card stand on its own? Is it good, bad, or have potential? Is it worth being played? This card like most can't do very well on there own, and this card has lots of potential, esp in fire/energy heavy. Emboar has plenty of potential. 2. What popular metagame decks could it be...

    Samurott from Black & White (#32) [5/9]

    1. Analyze the stats of the card (HP, Weakness, Resistance, Retreat cost). Samurott i think will be a comptitive against low hp decks (like jumpluff) and weakness (like donphan) and a good surprise. For a non prime has resonable HP at 140, Weakness to heavy hitting electric decks (like Zekrom)...

    Tyrandibuzz (Needs division in thread title)

    RE: Tyrandibuzz i am building a similar deck, i was thinking on putting Liepard in for disruption or poke catcher and t-tar (one sp dark and DCE for Power Claw to take out tech esp oddish/gloom early) or cheap kills with Liepard you can have early kills atleast 60 damage and max 120, and...

    vilegar lock(w B&W rules) (vileplume and gengar) (Needs division in title)

    RE: vilegar lock(w B&W rules) (vileplume and gengar) never mind then, this would have been a nice deck idea if vileplume's poke body didnt adapt to the new format

    vilegar lock(w B&W rules) (vileplume and gengar) (Needs division in title)

    RE: vile lock(w B&W rules) (Needs main Pokemon from deck/division in title) i also stated that this decks full potential will be when B&W rules take effect and all Trainers, Supporters and stadiums are ALL trainers, Medicham forces drawing, as vileplume locks i knew i forgot something...

    Nightmare! (Hypno/Musharna/Reuniclus) RR-On

    RE: Nightmare! (Hypno/Musharna/Reuniclus) RR-On (Needs division in title) Darkrai G, is from RR/SV so you are fine until next year and for that extra damage between turns

    HGSS-onpluff

    Be careful what to put in as Black and White rules will come in to effect and everything is a trainer, and with vileplume and spiritomb still in the picture, can lock whole decks on both sides (i think only gengar and few other pokemon, like DGX(until Sept) will thrive, when April 25th rolls...

    HGSS-onpluff

    very few pokemon have resistances to grass, and i would not get rid of Jumpluffs resistance (as it could save it from KO and hit a second time)

    Donphan/Ursaring Prime

    lopunny is usually my lead, and keeps Donphan's attack from getting out of control, and lopunny has low retreat cost, and poke body only works while active, gives me 1-3 of good draw power (which usually what i need), if needed attach DCE to attack with it (and while against vilgar you have to...

    Donphan/Ursaring Prime

    this deck leads with Donphan, spreading damage amongst my bench, hopefully only within 2-3 turns, then after the first donphan has been knocked out, send out Ursaring or Machamp Prime to finish sweeping which ever is powered at the time 20 Pokemon: 2-2 Donphan Prime (HG/SS) 2-2 Ursaring...

    Metagross SV/Absol Prime

    since you are doing damage spread, you might look into Mandibuzz (to get rid of tech/stalling pokemon)
