In order to use Psy Crusher properly you need to switch it in fresh. Alternate with a different theme deck so you get the first shuffle on Psy Crusher.

 

When used this way you're very likely to get a turn two Shadow Ball attack to blast the bench with up to eighty damage on some hapless baby Poke. If you keep using Psy Crusher then the cards will eventually get randomized and you'll lose the advantage.

Where do you imagine the order of cards comes from, or is stored?

 

We see this theory occasionally, but it conflicts with the argument that the card randomization is not the same as the shuffling you would get with a real deck.

 

Every indication is that the cards are stored as a list, and that list does not change from game to game.

 

If it did, switching decks wouldn't "reset" it. You'd need to open the deck in the editor and re-save it.


"Swishonk!" That's what's happening!
