Hi all, am at a bit of a crisis.
I am ordering my (physical) pokemon cards for my solgaleo and lunala GX deck (see the chat i made) from an online store [Edited by Mod_Turtle: Posting names of sites could be considered advertising]. They have the best prices i can find however they get their cards from different stores and my cards i want are from a range of stores. They also have a policy that you have to spend at least $2 on each store, meaning i need a way to spend more money but dont want to waste it on randomncard. So i had an idea that i could order some cards for a second deck, giving me some variety on which deck i choose to play. I then thought that i want to use a newer deck idea and thought that team up GX’s was the way to go.
So, i was wondering which is the best team up gx and what is a good deck to go with it. Also, if you have a different deck idea (not team up) post it as well as i might like it. Finally, if you also know a different store which sells physical pokemon cards then please post it. It may solve all my problems.
So, in summary, pls post either a deck you think is really good or which team up GX you think is best and a recomended deck or a few cards to go with it.
Thanks

Yes, there’s Pikachu and Zekrom. Also Celebi & Venusaur (My list is on the post your decks thread), you could try out Latias & Latios/Starmie. If you want a different store, use Amazon. It’s a little more expensive, but you’ll get everything you need.

[Edited by Mod_Turtle: Posting names of sites could be considered advertising] $2 rule is why I don’t order from them anymore.

Sorry, just searched up all of the tag teams and they are way to exspensive. Does anyone have any other relatively new decks that might be a good option to use in tournamnets.
Thanks!

Jirachi is great in this deck but expensive. The rest is 2 or 3 pack cards and lower. You can use SM30/SM31 Tapu Koko to replace Jirachi although don't work so good. Remove Escape Board if so and add another Nest and what you like. Absol TUP88 or Gengar & Mimikyu (3 packs) are welcome.
 
Do you have 4 Zoroark-GX maybe? There are good decks with him. Zoroark-GX with Lycanrock-GX if you have the Zoroark is not expensive a lot.

The Pokémon Company has some useful resources right on their webpage.

 

The Strategy page has some newer deck lists posted to answer your first question:

 

https://www.pokemon.com/us/strategy/

 

And then there's always the winning results from recent major tournaments.  With the Top 8 from each event listed, you should be able to find a wealth of ideas.

Remember Professor Juniper is same than Professor Sycamore but you cannot play both in same deck.
 
You can remove Karen and add Field Blower or another card you think is good and remove something you have 4 and leave 3 to make some space. Mr Mime -Bench Barrier ability- can be played too, Psychic or Fairy. Giratina -Devour Light ability- wins the game if BREAK in front.
 
You can choose different ACE SPEC. Next best is Dowsing Machine but expensive. You can try Scrambble Switch and if not Scoop Up Cyclone or Master Ball  are cheap.
