So I have been working on a good and consistent Ninetales GX deck, and even though the construction looks good, I keep on ending up with hands I just can't do anything with. 

 

If people could give me suggestions and tell me what cards I should take out or put in that would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Here is the decklist:

 

Pokemon 13

 

Alolan Vulpix 4

Alolan Ninetales GX 4

Remoraid 1

Octillery 1

Manaphy Ex 1 (aqua tube)

Tapu Lele Gx 2

 

Energy 12

 

Water 8

Double Colorless 4

 

Trainers 35

 

Rough Seas 4

Guzma 2

Professor Juniper 4

N 4

Bridgette 1

Pokemon Center Lady 2

Aqua Patch 4

Rescue Stretcher 2

VS Seeker 4

Choice Band 1

Rock Guard 1

Ultra Ball 4

A9T is a stalling poke. You need to combine with a heavy hitter. I've tried Zoroark and Xerneas.

 

For example:

He's using the GX, not the reg form- so it's really more of a turbo/snipe/disruption deck.


The rest of the world must act as they see fit.  If TPCi insists on keeping the Chat canned, that is their decision.

 

But that does not stop me from opposing it.

And I will oppose it forever.

My bad. It simply didn't occur to me why anybody would ever use Alolan Ninetales-GX instead of Garchomp and Lucario.

 

Kill four of these dragons while losing three of your GX and who wins?

Here's the thing: Ninetales has more support, and more consistency.  Garchomp needs Candy, a Cynthia every turn, and special charge.  Nintales has Aqua Patch, Manaphy-EX, Lapras as a switch-hitter, a more consistent (though worse) second attack, and gets to use an extremely powerful set-up attack.

 

Garchomp is still probably a better deck, but the trade-offs are evident.


The rest of the world must act as they see fit.  If TPCi insists on keeping the Chat canned, that is their decision.

 

But that does not stop me from opposing it.
