    ELECTRIC SCAR

    [​IMG]


    Pokémon (16):
    • 1 Galarian Zigzagoon (enable)
      1 Tapu Koko Prism (enable)
      2 Zapdos SM9 (beatdown)
      2 Zeraora S3a (beatdown)
      4 Luxray S5R (beatdown)
      2 Luxio S5R (evolution)
      4 Shinx S5R (evolution)
    Trainer (34):
    • 3 Korrina’s Motivation (draw)
    • 2 Boss’s Orders (control)
    • 3 Prof. Research (draw)
    • 3 Marnie (draw)
    • 3 Pokémon Communication (search)
    • 3 Scoop Up Net (retrieval)
    • 4 Rare Candy (evolve)
    • 4 Quick Ball (search)
    • 3 Level Ball (search)
    • 3 Exp Share (retain)
    • 3 Tower of Water (retreat)
    Energy (10):
    • 6 Lightning Energy
    • 4 Speed Energy

    STRATEGY:

    Start with either Basic Pokémon and bench two to three Shinx. Next turn start to evolve Shinx into Luxray and attach Exp. Share to him. Attack with either Zeraora or Zapdos and use Scar Beat to finish the opponent. The main idea of this deck is to stream low cost 1-prize attackers who can knock out the opponent in one to two hits for one attachment.

    SPOILER:

    Luxray
    Stage 2 Lightning Pokémon - evolves from Luxio (Rapid Strike)
    HP: 150
    [L] Electric Slide
    This attack does 40 damage to 1 of your opponent’s Pokémon. Don’t apply weakness and resistance for benched Pokémon. Then, switch this Pokémon with 1 of your benched Pokémon.
    [L][C] Scar Beat: 100+
    If your opponent’s active Pokémon has any damage counters on it, this attack does 100 more damage.
    Retreat Cost: C
    Weakness: F

    Luxio
    Stage 1 Lightning Pokémon - evolves from Shinx (Rapid Strike)
    HP: 80
    [L] Jump Kick
    This attack does 30 damage to 1 of your opponent’s Pokémon.
    [L][C] Head Bolt: 50
    Retreat Cost: C
    Weakness: F

    Shinx
    Basic Lightning Pokémon (Rapid Strike)
    HP: 60
    [L] Rear Kick: 20
    Retreat Cost: C
    Weakness: F

    Korrina's Motivation
    Trainer - Supporter (Rapid Strike card)
    Draw cards until you have 6 cards in your hand.

    Tower of Water
    Trainer - Stadium (Rapid Strike card)
    The Retreat Cost of each Rapid Strike Pokémon (both yours and your opponent's) is CC less.

    Would you not want a copy of Brawly in here now that he's been revealed for the May set? It sounds like he'd be kinda nice for getting a ton of shinx out.

    Hi John InCENAroar,

    Thanks for the review. Not sold on Bradley at al for these reasons: (1) We cannot use supporters on out first turn going first, and (2) brawley is limited to Rengeki Pokémon. The first turn rule and the fact that we cannot search out and use a 1-off tech supporter on our first turn makes Brawley useless compared to a thicker Ball search engine. Brawley is in essence a more restrictive Bridgette and the use of Bridgette also declined once these circumstances held true and Garbodor was no longer the main threat that moptivated the use of Bridgette over item search cards.
