Winning streak of 39 snapped today. Was using my Buzzwole GX and Regirock EX deck. I previously had winning streaks of 38 (Gardevoir GX) and 40 (Buzzwole GX and Lycanroc GX) end in a suspiciously similar way: getting a bad starting pokemon and drawing only energies for the rest of the game.
I started with a Regirock EX, with 3 of my 9 basic energies as part of my opening hand. My next 3 draws were all basic energies. This in itself isn't too unlikely, but the exact same thing happened to end my other two win streaks, except it was with Tapu Lele GX and Remoraid instead of Regirock EX. After this loss, it made me feel that once you get your win streak to 38-40, you'll have a significantly higher probability of drawing dead opening hands. I find it really difficult to believe that pure chance will result in the same scenario three times as soon as your win streak reaches the 38-40 range.
To add insult to injury, my Regirock EX would've survived for another turn, but the damage reduction effect from his Bedrock Press didn't work. Ugh...
