If we was to pick 3 Pokémon, 2 Trainers, & 2 energy from the above packs, I think we would get a clear picture.
We start off with a deck that has a very strong Pokémon line up.
It is actually tough picking 3 Pokémon out of this pack
1- Ultra Necro.
5- Baby Buzzwole
1- Beast Ring
2- Master Treasure
1- Beast Energy
2- United Energy
Is there any mystery at all as to why I have this pack at 0.7?
Look at the Pokémon coming out of this pack!
A Pokémon deck that reached Worlds in Japan was Ultra Necro.
It is clear Ultra Necro. is part of the meta.
With Further inspection, We see several cards that are the best in there respected Categories.
Ultra Necro. is the best Dragon Pokemon.
Greninja is the best Water Pokemon.
It is very important to note these in our evaluation.
Some people only play specific deck categories.
They only play Water decks or
They only play Fire decks etc.
In addition, the pack contains Pokémon used in tons of different meta decks.
I have never met a Buzzwole deck with out a Baby Buzzwole. Lol
This is why I feel the evaluation is 0.7.
1- Dawn Wings Necro.
2- Dusk Mane Necro.
1- Super Boost Energy
2- Unit Energy
We can see a difference compared to the previous pack.
This pack Pokémon line up it’s has hard to come up with.
Dawn Wings Necro. is played in a lot of top tier decks.
Dawn Wings Necro. is probably the best Psychic GX for it category.
The other 2 Pokémon are not seen in meta very much, but they are decent.
I feel this pack main strong point is with the trainer line up!
Cynthia is played in every deck for sure.
Lillie has also gain some useage.
I give this deck 0.6 because it has some strong cards, but not as many to other packs.
2- Wishful Baton
1- Warp Energy
2- Water Energy
This pack has the best Pokémon in Standard.
Many people consider Buzzwole as the Best Fighting Pokémon in the Fighting category.
The Buzzwole deck is the Best Deck in Standard Format.
However, We have to evaluate the pack as a whole.
We have to be neutral in our judging.
It was easy for me to pick 3 Pokémon from this pack.
I didn’t struggle like with the Forbidden pack.
It is clear the value can’t be 0.7 or higher.
With further inspection, We can see this pack has some top cards for other categories.
I believe Guzzlord is the best Dark Pokémon for the Dark Category.
Guzzlord can charge up himself.
Guzzlord can deliver a killer hit!
If you wanted to play a Dark Type GX Deck, what Pokémon would you play?
I feel Guzzlord would be a top pick.
Next, we see Silvalley.
I believe Silvalley is the best Colorless Pokemon for the Colorless Category.
It not a meta deck, but it is probably the best in it’s category.
Best Category cards are worth noting.
The trainers I have selected seem reasonable to me.
I personally love Gladion.
I feel Gladion will get better once Town Map rotates out of Standard.
Gladion has saved my tail a few times.
Gladion is the type of card that can be used in every day or no deck at all. Lol
This makes Gladion a great Tech. Card.
Most times you use 1 Gladion to look at your prize cards to get Pokémon, Item card, or Energy.
Sometimes a key card is prized.
Gladion can help get it.
I feel good with my selection of Gladion.
Wishful Baton is another card which could gain some popularity.
Max Elixir is rotating out of Standard.
How do you charge Pokémon fast with out Max Elixir.
1 way could be to use knock out Pokémon as means to charge.
Wishful Baton can transfer energy from a Knock out Pokemon to another.
Wishful Baton is similar to Gladion.
It can be used as Tech in every deck or no deck at all. Lol
No matter what deck you play.
1 of your Pokémon will eventually get knocked out.
I evaluated this deck at 0.6.
I gave it 0.6 because it is like Ultra PRISMA.
It has some strong cards, but not as many as other packs.
Buzzwole is probably carrying the pack.
However, the pack has cards in it which could be played in any meta deck at any time.
Tech. Cards can be tricky.
They could be used at any time.
Than they would help Buzzwole carry the pack.
It very tough to pick 3 top Pokémon from Burning Shadow because it has several good ones.
1- Tapu Bulu
7- Tapu Fini
2- Choice Band
3- Rescue Stretcher
1- Dark Energy
2- Fairy Energy
You know what.
I feel like my 0.6 is unjustifiable for Burning Shadow.
Look at the top tier cards coming out of that pack.
In addition, you have some different top cards for specific categories.
Tapu Bulu is best grass deck.
Ho-oh is the best fire deck.
Gardevior is best fairy deck.
Yeah, I am going to edit my previous comment.
I’m changing Burning Shadow’s to 0.7
It is said that if Gengar is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
