I’m glad my previous advice was helpful to you, MGSting.
I would like to give you some more advice!
I have read the logic behind your card choices.
It has given me helpful insight on why you are using those cards.
The good news is your reasoning behind most of these cards makes very good sense.
The bad news is some of your reasons may not be worth the effort.
What I would like to do is try to offer alternatives.
The first thing I want to address is the Hounds
- 2x Houndor
- 2x Houndoom
I think you should replace them for better prospects.
You are using the Hounds to deal with Resistance.
It is very solid logic, but maybe there is a better way.
I will explain.
There are 2 main types of Resistance that you should be worried about.
1- Natural Resistance
2- Ability Resistance
- Natural Resistance is the resistance which you see at the bottom of Pokémon card.
It will say something like this Pokémon takes 20 damage less from Dark Types.
In order to deal with this resistance, I say don’t use a Pokémon.
Instead, you should use item card.
3x Choice Band or 3x Muscle Band is way to go!
**We can replace the EXP Shares with these.**
You can attach the Bands to any of your Pokémon.
It will help counter.
- Ability Resistance is the resistance you see which is stated as 1 of the opponents Pokémon attacks.
It will say something like this Pokémon takes no damage from GX or EX Pokémon.
2 popular Pokémon which have this ability include:
- Alolah Ninetails
The easiest way to deal with these Pokémon is by using a non-GX or EX Pokémon.
The lucky part is that your playing a Dark Deck MGSting.
The reason why your lucky is because you can counter the opponents Hoopa with a Hoopa of your own!
I would add 2x Hoopa into your deck.
Hoopa is Dark Non-GX/EX monster.
It can fight rival ones.
It can slow down rival GX/EX decks.
It is win win for you.
**General Tip To Everyone**
** If you play Water Deck, I always recommend adding 1-2 copies of Alolah Ninetails.
**If you play Dark Deck, I always recommend adding 1-2 copies of Hoopa.
The last 2 Pokemon slots will go to draw support.
I recommend Oranguru for the job!
Oranguru ability is very helpful.
