Hi everyone.
I have recently written some Pokemon articles on another gaming website. This is just a preliminary post to make sure that it's okay to link them here. They're nowhere near as high quality as the articles published by Pokebeach but I want to give the chance to access them if it's okay with the mods. I'll post a few links on Thursday if anyone is interested.

I thought that this forum would also be a good place to discuss them amongst people who are more knowledgable about the Pokemon TCG.

Hi everyone. Here is the first article its about what budget decks are good. Feel free to comment about it under the article or in this forum.

Here's another one about the best booster packs to buy. I did a lot of research for this article and it was super fun to look through all of the sets. Even the older ones. I really hope I have enough money to buy a few packs of them someday.

I hope you enjoy the articles.

P.S. I apologize for the clickbait titles. I really don't like disingenuous and clickbait stuff but the website wouldn't let be change the titles. Hopefully you'll find that the articles include some good info.

Here's some more articles.

The top GX cards. I think most of us are going to miss these and it was fun going back over them all.

Top decks. This is mostly just a review of the Meta decks that were winning in the beginning of April.

Top Cards. I love looking through cards and just seeing which ones work best in general. A lot of thought goes into card synergy but it's also important to recognize which cards work well by themselves.

What's up everyone? Here are some more articles.

The top 3 Charizard decks. To be honest, I don't know much about Charizard decks in expanded so if I missed one, let me know.

Top 5 Theme Decks. I had a lot of fun with this one. I bought a bunch from the PTCGO store and tested most of the against each other.

P.S. Don't buy any Theme decks released Black & White - Burning Shadows unless you really need a certain card. They have way to few trainers. Some of them only have 2 supporter cards in them.

Got three more articles for everyone. I looked through every single card of each type and figured out which were the top 15 on their own merits. It seems that some older cards are actually able to compete with some of the newer ones although not as many were as crazy as I expected.

Top 15 Psychic Cards

What's up everyone? I've got five more articles incase you're interested. My favorite one is the EX one. I hope you enjoy reading them.

Top 5 Dark Theme Decks. There are only like 7 dark theme decks so I wasn't quite sure what to do with this one.
https://www.gamersdecide.com/articles/pokemon-tcg-best-dark-theme-decks

Top 10 Colorless Pokemon. It's kind of underwhelming to look at colorless Pokemon after other types because they're pretty average.
https://www.gamersdecide.com/articles/pokemon-tcg-best-colorless-pokemon

Top 10 Basic Pokemon. I really enjoyed looking through all the powerful ones of these. I tend to gravitate towards Basic centric decks myself.
https://www.gamersdecide.com/articles/pokemon-tcg-best-basic-pokemon

Top 10 Fighting Pokemon. The best fighting types are the consistent ones. Or the ones that use lots of special energy.
https://www.gamersdecide.com/articles/pokemon-tcg-best-fighting-cards

Top 10 EX Cards. I miss EX cards.

Here are some more articles. I really liked the special energy one just because I love looking through special energy cards. My personal favorite special energy for nostalgia reasons is Mystery energy.

Top 10 Supporter Cards Expanded. Wow there are a lot of these to go through.

Top 10 Special Energy Cards. I feel like the top three on this list are pretty solid.
https://www.gamersdecide.com/articles/top-10-pokemon-tcg-special-energy-cards

Top 7 BREAK Cards. This article made me feel tempted to go back into Expanded and play around with BREAKs.
https://www.gamersdecide.com/articles/top-7-pokemon-tcg-break-cards

Top 10 Item Cards in Standard. There are actually surprisingly few item cards available. Not that I was not looking at tool cards.

Top 10 Supporter Card in Standard. For this article I was looking at post rotation Standard.

Hope you all enjoy.

Great articles, thanks. Excellent articles that are always interesting and informative to read. I also recently thought about creating several articles or stories in a similar scenario. I study at university and write a lot of different studies. Now I'm writing a term paper with https://writix.co.uk/coursework-help-uk It distracts me a little from creating and developing games, but the writers from the service help me a lot.

Hi everyone. I've got some more articles for you.

Best Stadium Cards. These are the stadiums that help your opponent the least but still work with most decks.

Best Tool Cards. I really enjoyed writing this one. It was super fun to look at all of the tools that are useable in Expanded.

Hardest Hitting Attacks. I was surprised that a lot of these were Charizard. Even older Charizards keep up numbers-wise with the newer ones.

Best Trainer Cards. Sorry if some of your favorites didn't make it onto this list. There are so many trainers and honestly, this probably wasn't the best topic. Oh well.

Best Dark Pokemon. This article is focused between post rotation legal sets but not including Evolving Skies so it's kind of limited. Also, what is the common thread between dark types? They don't seem to have a thing.

Hope you all enjoy.
