    Wi-Fi Trades Looking for Shuckle and Klefki

    I'm REALLY late to the VG party, just got Ultra Moon and I'm trying to build a team. The only ones I can't get in game are Shuckle and Klefki. I'll have do work on IV and EV breeding and whatnot. But at the very bare minimum, I need these two goofballs. Not sure how the trading works on VG...

    Expanded Three Strikes Yikes! (Slowbro/Victini) (For Seniors)

    Ok. So it's a bit too early to tell as of yet, but my daughter wants to pick the game back up again, but will only play decks that fit the following criteria: - Is it annoying? - Is it embarassing to lose against? She is a control player at heart and has played a $50 Wailord EX control deck...

    Discussion Dallas Regional Day 1: what do you want your 9 rounds to look like?

    Everyone is bringing the spice...or Zoroark. Or both. I don’t know. What do you want your 9 rounds of Day 1 at Dallas look like, without revealing what you’re playing? I, no joke, want 9 rounds of Zoroark-GX

    Alt. Format Fan Service/Pikachu.dec (Deck for new players/kids to use) mk:3

    Here's the story. I've been running a League since April and I'm on a quest for "the best fan service for new player deck possible". I'm currently working on the 3rd big revision. Initially, I tried to cram as many references in the show as I could: Pikachu, Team Rocket, Legendaries...

    Expanded Unown HAND FTK - *FREE ARTICLE*

    I've edited enough articles to the point to where I'm thinking, "hey! I know the deal and can write one of these, easy-peasy!"

    Discussion Malamar Builds (SUM-on)

    I am curious if anyone has tried experimenting with Malamar / Necrozma-GX/Ultra Necrozma-GX builds for post rotation? With the loss of Max Elixir and Professor Sycamore, is the deck going to have trouble setting up early game? Is Sophocles/TV Reporter the replacement for Sycamore? How is...

    Alt. Format Electric Mouse New Player Deck (Plusle/Minun/Raichu GX)

    Okay. I’m trying to construct a fun, but effective deck for super new/relatively new players to use and learn the game during Pokémon Leagues. I’m not a fan of starter decks. The trainers kits are a step up, but I think it could be better. Basically, I want to put as much ‘fan service’ in...

    I need a ruling on Mystery Energy. I have a Psychic Trevenant active...the annoying item lock one; 3 to retreat. On it I have a Psychic Energy and a Msytery Energy. What happens when I retreat it? - do I discard only the Mystery energy, since it cuts 2 off retreat cost and that it could also...
