I am tweaking my PikaRom deck to include some defensive cards as PikaRom while being a prize taking machine can also become a prize liability if it is not charged and attacking quickly. When I first made my deck I was inclined to include defensive cards like Aether Conservation Center and Acerola, but quickly cut them out as I opted to focus solely on offensive strategy of powering up PikaRom as quickly as possible. Looking at the lists used by many of the players at Collinsville and Cannes, it seems that having some defensive techs is a very smart idea. I am including one copy of Aether Conservation Area and one copy of Weakness Policy. My question is weather to go with Acerola or Max Potion? In my Jolteon Zapdos deck Max Potion is clearly the better option, but with PikaRom I am unsure. If PikaRom is in play and in unable to quickly attack it is a big prize liability and it might be better to get it out of play rather than just heal it. Also, the energy cards that are attached are not discarded, even though with all the energy switches you can likely just move them to other pokemon in play. What is the opinion of other players? Is Acerola or Max Potion a better defensive tech for PikaRom? All opinions and comments are greatly appreciated.
