  1. I have a pile of shining fates codes that I will never use. I figured I'd post here and see if I can spread the joy! I'll give away 2 or 3 random codes to each person who replies. There are 2 Elite Trainer Box codes in the mix somewhere so that is a possibility.

  3. To my great disappointment upon coming back to PTCGO recently after a long break I saw that the avatar store on the website is closed. This would not be much of a concern if the items were still available in game, yet currently this is not the case. Any new players who come into the game will have very very limited options on customisation and that seems unfair. Older players like myself will remember the enjoyment of such extra customisation, and have still some chance to enjoy it, but will never be able to get any new sets we do not currently have which is, again, very sad indeed.

  4. yes I know its been discussed before. and yes i know "if you don't have statistics it cant be proven blah blah". here's the thing, nothing needs to be "proven". I think its fare to say a large portion of players have an issue with the RNG and takes away from the joyful experience you could have when you don't end up with 3 research, 3 energy, and 1 basic in hand... I'm a realistic person, i know what confirmation bias is and i know when i see a poorly designed rng. again I'm not a software engineer but i noticed a lot of groupings in my opening hands on ptcgo. for instance, they'll be 2 scoop

  5. In term of Philosophy, colorless is not a type. They are simply "normal" pokemons. They are transparent. No Pokemon has weakness against them. Nearly no trainers Support them. They are there only to be on the background, not under spotlight. They never ask for reward but work harder than any other typed Pokemon. They are in nearly every decks. They always ready and Prepare to be a sacrifice. They never cry. They always laugh even facing death. They help the team enjoy. They console when the team sad. But never share their pain. They are the real heroes behind the success. They always fulfill t

Professor Oak's New Theory is basically the Cynthia if the Legacy format since it's the same effect by shuffling your hand to your deck and drawing 6 cards making it extremely useful Professor Juniper is the Professor's Research of both the Legacy and Expanded format since it discards your hand and draws 7 cards.

  8. I guess having a close match with some unexpected turnarounds is the only legit answer to the question. In addition, a match gets even better if your opponent plays an interesting deck, which is enjoyable (because not many play it, it's simply exotic, and/or you need real skill to excel). Though one point I personally consider very important is the average time per turn. I can't really enjoy games where my opponents uses 2 minutes per turn. Then I usually do something else like reading an article or so. That's not what I want to do at that time though 😂 sometimes I even forget the game an

  11. General tip: crying for a ban after having played 1 game against a certain deck only makes you look like an idiot. If this were ******* at least I could give it the benefit of the doubt and call the title click bait :S. Anyway: the deck looks quite solid to get the set-up with a reasonable high% on the first turn (assuming you go 2nd). That being said like many other donk decks the overall win percentage won't be that high, as there are enough ways to counter it: a ) let them go first and set up your bench accordingly (difficult to do if you don't know what you are up a

  12. I agree there are some combos that cause a negative impact in game. Personally I think it's not about banning one card or the other but there should be a rule stating "a player can't win a game in turn one". And even: "every player can start their turn and play cards from it" If you can't play a card (because locked or whatever the reason) it's a game lost for opponent. That would end all kind of Turn 1 trick strategies. Wining turn one is purely against the spirit of playing the game and has happened previously, so they started banning cards harder than ever to avoid some combos (

  13. The water Theme decks are not good per merits. Their playability it's a consequence of Fire ruling the "Meta" since the Blazing volcano times. That said, TC it's harder to setup. you need more pieces, more energies to attack and it's less consistent in general terms. As per UD, it's a 1 energy attack while you can deny opponent's basics to attack and aim to bench if something in front makes you impossible to hit it (*chough Rapidash cough*) or to just remove the important Stage 2 of opponent before they can fully evolve. Solved before it's a problem. Think b

  14. Hello fellow pokemon trainers, this is a guide to help your deckbuilding skills as well as explaining why certain decks work the way they do to work. I'm only going to explain Legacy and Expanded decks since the Standard Format is ALWAYS changing every year makin them outdated once a set rotates out. But 1st things 1st, you need to know the good trainer cards and the other good tech cards and WHY they're good.

  15. Hi there. I've noticed from while ago the market takes forever to load all the trades, filtering or not a certain card. I've talked to other trainers to be sure it wasn't something with my computer. They suffer the same "problem". It takes around 1 minute per hour of trades to load, so it's up to 8 minutes to load the 8h of trades, if everything works. Other times, just stop loading in the middle (around 5h or 6) and never ends to load the rest UNLESS you scroll down once and again "forcing" the system to keep searching and loading. It's weird al

  20. Because if you can do it, other can do it too. And since dealing with bad people who abusing that is proved to be too difficult, they have to shut them out by not allow them to do it. Thus you are not allowed to do it too. It is sad that we are sort of punished too for what not our false. However, as long as the rare-items farmer are still exist, it is better for us this way.

  21. Energy is always essencial part in almost any deck. It is common knowledge that get extra energy early in the game can give a good advantage. But not only that, a sudden extra energy for your Attack or Critical Skill will catch your opponent off guard and may lead to your winning. Note: I only did list only combo that give your advantage on the same turn (with exception of Zacian V), so only combo from Pokemon Ability, not from their skills (that would be too many to list).

  22. There is definitely something abnormal with the shuffling system online. I think that it is just the incapability of the developers to create a optimized randomizer that is similar to IRL shuffling. Based on the current amount of bugs present, I am totally not surprised. It is a relief that these developers are not responsible for coding the mainstream games though. Another problem may be their budget too since it is expensive to do that. Many professional players and ********* (e.g. tablemon) have complained about the online shuffling and have advised that the online gameplay is

  23. Why do I feel that sound a bit scary 😱 but I really appreciated that my theory are interested by someone, especially one from the company staff 😊. First of all, I have to say that my speculation theory came from another game (that shouldn't be named here, I guess). I have not yet to counter hand distribution issue on this game (PTCGO) so I never tested my theory here. In my theory, the hand distribution algorithm split to 2 parts 1) How the Deck-data structured before the shuffle 2) How the the Shuffle algorithm intended to work To make thi

  27. For some reason for the Primal Clash release they put 5-card locked boosters in the in-game shop which were implemented as an additional item besides the usual South American 5-card redeemable packs even though there shouldn't have been any difference. Does anybody know if those were available for Gems? I feel like if they were they're probably one of the rarest items in the game. If you ask me, items which aren't available in a tradable variant should be exempt from trading offers. (If, however, 5-card tradable boosters in that variant exist, that wouldn't be an option

  28. As seen in the video posted YT, there are some shady trades which can give you golden Quick Ball for an old 5-card pack. You can get those from adequate trades which give you such pack at a rather high cost of valuable cards. However, there are two separate collection slots for such packs, so you believe you are getting a pack you need for a Quick Ball but you end up with nothing. Pattern expands on other older sets, but in my particular case, I built my example (a costly one) on Flashfire. Consider this post as a warning to all of the players, but also as a detection o

My hope is that @mod will consider this good enough to pin in this forum so we can avoid repeating the same advice to new deck builders. If you're just starting out read this good advice from Otakutron. Another guide for PvP strategy and deck building here by Felidae_ If you've asked for deck advice you've likely been welcomed and offered sound advice from Chasista.

  31. Since this is a bedget deck I will understand if you can't get some cards but here are some cards you should add. Super Potion is useless since most of your pokemon can get 1 shot plus healing is useless. Hard Charm is useless too for the same reason plus there are better cards for more hp than hard charm. Get rid of Timer Ball and add Evolution Incense and Rare Candy so you can evolve your pokemon on turn 2. Too many Evolutions. Stick to 1 strategy and don't add too many fancy evolutions. Lower your N count a little bit and try adding Marnie too or instead of N since

  34. Hi, I just conceded a game against Crabominable because I just couldn't do any damage to it for no apparent reason. All my opponent had was 2 Crabominables in play with 1 strong energy attached to the active and a Protection Cube, which only protects their active pokemon from attack it uses, however, my pokemon couldn't do any damage to it at all, everytime I attacked, the protective field force appeared. I was attacking with Memories of Dawn-Mew, had a Dimension Valley and a benched Dubwool V I was copying their attacks from. I attacked once and got the force field,

  35. Get rid of 3 to 4 energy since you don't need that much energy I would say keep it at 15 max. 4 Speed Lightning energy for maximum draw support. Pikachu V is useless since it can only attach to itself. Vikavolt V is no longer meta since it costs to much energy, discards it all, and uses a bench space. N is cool but you should get rid of it and add 2 more Marnie. N and Lysandre is NOT standard legal so you should trade lysandre for boss's orders which you can get a free full art from the code of the tcg global finals. 1 or 2 Mewtwo & Mew GX is needed since it c

  36. Thanks for the answer. Wow, 6 and 4. I had the feeling that starting the game were only 4 and 2 but never remembering which was 2 and which 4 copies. Also in older years the Starting decks were different and both trainers were more seen in the Starting decks so I thought maybe some of them had even lower numbers. Unless you have purchased/pulled some from Theme/Packs. Anyway!

  39. Here's an idea that I thought might be cool. PTCG released this "Raid Battles" mode for the trading card game with an official website and tracker app that lets you do raid battles with your friends in real life. It seemed mostly like an idea geared more as a way for people to get their friends into the PTCG card game. However, I thought it would be a cool idea for an extra game mode on PTCGO. By using the same Raid Battle rules that already exist, PTCGO could implement the game mode as a part of PTCGO with random matchmaking (or allow you to que up with some friends). You could choose any car

  43. Names & Numbers Maximum card counts in a 60 card deck 4 copies of cards with the same name (this includes special energy) 1 copy of prism star cards 1 single Ace Spec card per deck 59 basic energies (you must have at least 1 pokemon to make a useable deck) Card Quantity Guidelines The more important a card is for the deck, the more copies you want. Cards that guarantee you something are much better than ones that make you flip a coin for a chance. 6 cards are placed as prizes so many cards are run with a minimum of 2 copies

  44. As I noticed the opening post has an Upvote and a Like, let me run through it: This part is fine. It sounds like an exaggeration, but if you only have the Theme Format for a reference, it may be accurate. This is patently false. Even good players lose with poor shuffles. Even if you think I'm a bad player, trust me, I've lost even with good opening hands. They can dominate, but they don't always. It is even in debate whether or not they're the top Theme Deck in the Theme Format, last I checked. This is either an intentional

  45. You won't learn anything playing against the bots, their AI is primitive and pretty much useless, they don't apply any strategy at all. If rewards were given for playing them, people wouldn't play PVP - the rewards are there as an incentive for PVP. Little tip: find out the good players, play them and don't be afraid to lose. Watch what they do, anything they can do - you can do too. Stick to starter decks too, because everyone who plays those is on equal grounds. The best starter decks in no particular order are Rillaboom, Charizard, Relentless Flame, Storm Caller, Soaring Storm, Tow

Pokemon Ranger/Channeler for removing recoil damage/ discard energy. Charizard & Braixen for search and when you don't need to do 300 damage. Fighting Fury Belt for 10 more damage and 40 more hp. Double Dragon energy for Nagalord GX. Giant Hearth for energy search.
