Hi. I only started playing this game recently so I really have no clue much about what's good to have, I just used one of the decks available at the start and gave it a few tweaks to what felt nicer to use. I quickly climbed to the pichu rank over the past couple days (I have no idea if thats any good or not lol) but still feel like theres a lot i have to learn about card synergies and deck building. Any help with my deck/tips in general would be much appreciated

My deck I'm using right now, is just the Palkia VSTAR deck with some minor tweaks
