I've also found Resilient Life to be very suboptimal - lots of basics without their evolution lines especially on the Psychic side, and not nearly enough draw power. The saving grace is that Xerneas can thin the deck pretty well to make the low draw power slightly less of a handicap, and Mr. Mime can hit surprisingly hard for a cleric. You'll still be forfeiting a fair bit from dead opening draws in Trainer Challenges, though.

This. If you don't open with Xerneas, reset. Night Hunter is so bad that I still never got the pack from it.

The only deck (that I have) that I've had problems with is Enchanted Echo. The Eeveelutions are good, but most of the other pokemon are bad. And the trainers are absolutely terrible. I don't think maintenance should be in any deck, even ones that use archie's and Maxie's.

Nightfall, no question. Back in the days of the HGSS-DRX Trainer Challenge it was better, but with the current power ramp? No.
The only time I can win a game in TC is when I get a Metagross line start and power through everything (which happens about every 12 games)

I bought Plasma Shadow Theme Deck when it used to be at shop in PTCGO. If I don't start with Giratina, I used to lose everytime I played this deck in versus, eventhough it needs 3 energies to attack. lol

i still say all these decks are still better then the starter decks. thoes theme decks are not realy usefule for even the supporters.

 

 

personaly i think the fighting dark deck with pancham is terrible for the chalanges because its not consistant as a deck. almost imposible to consistantly get it

I've played a lot of theme decks and I got to say that the worst one I've played is probably the Fennekin deck. Delphox's Fire Blast takes too long to charge and isn't even worth it (and its other attack sucks)  and the other pokemon in the deck are so bad it's not even funny. Truly unplayable imo.

 

Plasma Shadow is probably the worst of the plasma decks. It is sooo hard to even get enough energy to start hitting things hard. And how am I supposed to hex things with ONLY ONE LASER????? Totally outclassed by Plasma Claw (which is surprisingly better than it looks) and Psy Crusher and simply can't hold a candle to the mighty Frost Ray.

If you're talking about the Dark Hammer deck, it's one of the most consistent decks out there, due to having 2 Korrinas to search for the Fighting Pokemon you need. It's good for the Fighting challenges, due to its ease of getting Machamp out in most cases.

if its consistant im probably never lucky wiht it, i never get my korrinas ;( and to get the pancham out its a pain while machamp is not consistantly able to be out due to the fact that there is little to no draw and maby you get machamp you dont get the energy, personaly the only deck i have been consistant with is the terrible round deck for some reason so its probably my luck.

Resilient Life was my second theme deck and it's just plain horrible. I almost quit playing the game after five straight losses to Calvin (yes Calvin!!!) Out of the free theme decks I find green to be the worst.

Worst decks: basically everything before gen5 (b/w).

Especially HG/SS ones.

Like the nidoking-deck from the bundle.

0 card draw.

Weak pokes with overpriced energy cost for low damage.

A pain to play with.

I have a few decks older than XY and they're all unplayable these days (maybe except for Mental Might, and that one is still pretty mediocre).

The Feniken, Froakie, and I'm guessing the Chespin as well ones are 100% terrible. So may janky fluff pokemon with no evolutions makes it impossible to actually build up a presence even against the bots. I must have played a good 30 games with the Feniken deck and I still haven't beaten enough of the ai's to earn the pack from it... I really wish I could refund those decks x.x

Basic Yellow. Out of date, horrible to play, and beaten by even the weakest of the store-bought decks. It makes RL with Xerneas and Aromatisse in the prizes look meta.


This is my OTHER signature.

Totally agreed. I Play the XY Basic Green one pretty heavily and find it to be more fun than the blue one. Yes the blue one has the potential of more dmg.... but the green one has the best weapon of all: Troll Monkey (and crazy amounts of drawpower.)

I've never really liked the Basic Yellow theme deck, the Pokémon aren't that good compared to the other 3 Basic theme decks you start with. Among the purchasable theme decks, Resilient Life has way too many useless filler cards (Spoink, Ekans, Phantump) with weak attacks and no evolutions included. Unless you want to make a fairy deck using Fairy Garden and Xerneas, it's not really worth it. My favorite Basic deck is Blue, because of the low energy requirements by Greninja and Gyarados's massive attack damage and for theme decks, Wave Slasher is good for making grass or water decks and for Themed battles, Night Striker and Dark Hammer are the best. The Lugia deck's Delphox is quite good as well, though
