#1. Some of the trainers in this deck benefit both players, more so the CPU player
#2. Deck is full of huge Pokemon that require many power cards to use.
#3. The shuffle and coin flip algorithms of this game are 60/40 at best in favor of the CPU in single player.
#1 + #2 + #3 = A horrible combination for a deck with awesome Pokemon, slain due to a lack of power card/effective trainer combos.
i.e. Both players shuffle hand in to deck and draw for remaining prize cards. Horrible. Most other decks have many "draw 3 cards" or "draw 2 cards and 20+ damage" trainers. This leads to a quick spiral of the CPU having a slew of options, while you are left HOPING for a power card to land, but instead drops a lesser Pokemon or the HEAL ALL DAMAGE AND DISCARD ALL POWER CARDS ATTACHED TO YOUR ACTIVE POKEMON card... talk about the world's most pointless card for this deck...
Sorry, I had to vent before I punched my laptop in half!
Anybody else find this deck infuriating?!
I haven't even bothered trying it in versus...
