What should I do with my in-game money? Do I buy decks or packs?
Tokens can only be spent on: packs, decks, in-game items such as deck boxes and card sleeves. i suggest buying decks so you can expand your collection.
What are some good decks for beginners? I have been trying a water deck and a psychic deck.
The theme decks on the shop are good because you can use them in PvP theme and rack up tokens this way. PvP them is easier than Standard or Expanded PvP.
If i wanna buy decks or packs which one should I buy?
Decks. For 500 tokens you get 60 cards. Packs costs 200 tokens for 10 cards. Buy packs after you've bought every deck there is on the shop.
Should I finish the training challenges if I already unlocked the 3 decks?
Yes. Beating 12 trainers using one deck gives one pack. All in all, if you complete trainer challenge you get 45 packs.
Why do I only get 1 star in the training challenges? You need to beat that trainer with another deck. You have 3 starter decks, so you get to beat a trainer 3 times, 1 star each for each deck. to get the 4th star, buy a theme deck from the shop. You can only use a theme deck. You can't use an edited or created deck against the trainer challenge.
What's best tip for a beginner like me?
All packs you gain from trainer challenge, daily challenges, daily wins mystery box, or basically anything the game gives for free (except tournament packs from tournament winnings or anything you get using tickets) are untradeable. So feel free to open them. Never trade tradeable packs (You can see if it's tradeable when you look at the pack. If the number is on the left of the lock icon, it's tradeable) You can trade packs for cards you need in the trade shop. Price guides are all over the forum and as long as you trade here in the forum, you won't get ripped off.
Play daily and complete the daily challenges and win at least 12 games in PvP. try to get all the versus rewards.
The latest released decks are usually the strongest. Buy Destruction Fang, Clanging Thunder, and Hidden Moon (in that order). You'll be able to figure out how they work in trainer challenge and you can then take them out to PvP.
If you win the coin toss, go first if your deck has a lot of evolution Pokemon. Go second if most of your Pokemons are basic or if your Pokemon types are strong against your opponent's.
Play draw cards first before anything else. You want to see all your options before deciding what to do next. Attach energy cards last before attacking. Don't fill up your bench. Always leave space so you can put down a Pokemon that can turn the tide.
If your opponent is able to get set up and has a foothold on the board, sacrifice Pokemons so you can set up one of your Pokemons that can take theirs out in one hit. Don't put on the board a Pokemon that will just die from one hit. You'll be wasting your set-up and energy. If you have no Pokemons that can OHKO, look for ones that can do sustained damage (burn, poison) or disabling effects (sleep, confuse, paralyze).
If you can avoid giving a prize card by retreating, do so. But only if this will result in a better position. Don't retreat if you'll be giving up board position.
This game consists of out-trading your opponent in Pokemon deaths. Looking ahead this curve will help you win more games.
As with all card games, draw is everything in this game. You must have draw power to increase your chances of winning. Always Draw if you can unless drawing will result in a bad position.
