I’m new to the Pokemon TCG. I just bought the Tropical Takedown and Bright Tide decks.

For the real world tournaments, can cards from these decks be used to construct decks for standard play? Or are those cards only usable in the theme deck format?

yes, if you purchased those decks you can use the specific cards in each of those decks to construct a standard deck.

 

lots of people get 2 mach strike decks and make a garchomp/lucario standard deck.

Sometimes, especially if you'd bought a old theme deck, some cards are unavailable in standard, but the new theme decks features 100% standard legal cards.

I am currently doing a series which demonstrates how a Beginner can Modify Theme Decks for Standard Format.
I am hoping to do a total of 6 different Theme Decks which all come from the Sun & Moon Saga.
- Destruction Fang
- Clanging Thunder
- Mech Strike
- Imperial Command
- Twilight Rogue
- Tropical Takedown

I have currently shown 2 Theme Decks so far!

- Destruction Fang

- Imperial Command

The next one I plan to post will be based on Clanging Thunder.
It is said that if Gengar is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
