So far I have completed the Trainer Challenge, which was a good way to get familiar with things, and since then I've been playing on Versus and entering Theme Events.
I'd like to know about other ways to play too; groups and stuff.
The only real downside to the game that I've encountered is opponents that are disrespectful. Even with canned chat they manage to express their obnoxiousness; which I suppose is well done! Y'know, they are using angry face emoji if you make a couple of successful coin flips against them; saying 'You have a good deck!' when you can't draw any Pokemon for your bench, and that sort of pettiness. SBS: Spoilt Brat Syndrome. Team Grunt is perfect for them.
There are the 'mute' and 'block' options, thankfully. I employ them quickly when an opponent starts making angry emoji face. Beat me by playing well, if you can, but don't be rude.
Also, Versus is quite well set up, in that no match is that important that it can't be quit. Yes, it's a loss, but unless you are playing almost 24/7 you aren't gonna make the high score tables anyway. That's how I feel about it.
I don't enjoy playing against obnoxious rude people, and if there was a way to permanently block them from ever being drawn against me again, I would use it.
Buzzwole decks are irritating... or, they seem to appeal to the angry Team Grunt crew. I've had people take 10 mulligans before getting a starting Pokemon. One guy took 15! I just insta-quit those games. I mean, you can set your deck up a bit better than that. They have 4 Pokemon in the deck or something.
For me, Pokemon is fun. I love all my Pokemon, and want them to do well in battles. It's not life and death, and a loss really isn't that significant. Perhaps in an Event it means more, of course.
I really enjoy building decks, and the Daily Challenges have encouraged me to expand into several decks, with different types of Pokemon. I wouldn't have gotten around to doing that otherwise.
