Lol, I never said playing rarely used cards (e.g. like Flying Pikachu) makes any deck “imaginative.” I only stated it was a fun deck. And yes, using Victini would be great; however, then I’d have to decide whether or not to add fire energy. If I add them the deck loses it’s original purpose (i.e. I may only draw Victini’s, and Victini my way to victory). Why then play a Flying Pikachu deck? And to add Victini with no fire energy would be senseless.
Also, you’re assuming that I haven’t experimented a bit with the cards in that deck. Adding cards like Fury Belt or Choice Band sounds great, but since most people play EX or GX cards that deal damage of 100 or higher, giving Flying Pikachu extra health or a bit of extra hitting power is just a bad idea. It’s better to hit with 30, use Trick Coin, and flip for heads.
Lol, I didn’t say that being unimaginative made anyone a bad player. Granted it gets boring fighting the same deck over and over again in versus and in the events area. Are these same decks unimaginative? Yup. Is that wrong? Nope, not at all.
Like I’ve said before, I don’t care if anyone wants to use super strong cards, be they normal cards, Prism, EX, GX, etc.. However, if we start playing decks filled with Pokemon we don’t like, just because we want to win, are we really winning? Or have we lost track of what this game is about? Granted I like winning. But I’m going to win using the Pokemon I like. It makes winning that much better because you were true to yourself (and the characters you actually like).
Ok, I’m done with this part of the forum. The air is getting tense. So, if anyone needs me, I’ll be in the video game area giving our free codes for the core games. But I’ll leave you all with Karen’s quote:
“Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites. I like your style. You understand what's important. Go on — — the Champion is waiting."
Laters to all, happy gaming, May the Force be with you, and Train On!
