    Standard Help with my Bisharp deck.

    After over 2 years I finally was able to get back to play the game via PTCG Online. And I'm trying out budget decks for standard, since I'm still developing a collection of Sun/Moon cards. This one focuses on using Bisharp from Team Up as the main attacker: ****** Pokémon Trading Card Game Deck...

    Discussion How I'd play Gyarados-GX: Celebi + Magikarp EVO

    I noticed many players point the biggest problem of Gyarados-GX: It requires a heavy attack cost for its main moves. However, I think I found a clever workaround for this: Make it use its Pre-evolution's attack instead! http://www.pokebeach.com/2017/07/most-shining-legends-cards-set-list It...

    Discussion Aegislash Post-Rotation

    I have been thinking... Lately, we have been getting very good spread damage basics, such as Tapu Koko and Necrozma-GX. It makes me wonder if this card could become more powerful as time goes on. Yes, it is a stage 2, and has a fairly high attack cost. But it could potentially fit into several...

    Espeon-*EX* Post S/M

    In many ways, depending on how well GX cards become in this Sun & Moon Meta, I say watch out for this card. It proves that Stage 1 and 2 GX's have one major exploitable vulnerability: They evolve from fairly low-HP Pre-evolutions. For instance, Solgaleo, Lunala, and Primarina -GX, etc. will...

    Joltik Leads

    This is such a strange thing that I completely overlooked - and it took over 1 month for me to notice this, when I played against an Xerneas Rainbow Toolbox deck. This little buggy, even though it doesn't have the notorious Night March attack, may have a curious niche as a lead around the start...

    TCG Fakes Lanstar's Text Based Fakes: If the Video Games Followed the TCG...

    Hello all! As much as I like the TCG, I also like playing the Video Games to some extent as well. And in the video games, the overpowered Pokemon have some kind of notorious strategy behind them that I wondered about how they would be implemented in the trading card game. In such, I'm creating...

    Discussion The Anti-Bench Meta

    Ever since Breakpoint, I'm noticing an incredibly disturbing trend: It's getting much harder to get a bench of support Pokemon set up without it getting torn apart, or having your opponent take advantage of it. Think of all the cards that have come out lately: Greninja BREAK, Trevenant Break...
