Recreating the first-generation Theme Decks =D

I decided to try to recreate the first-generation decks, meaning the expansions that include only the original 150 Pokemon :D Most of them couldn't be recreated in Pokemon TCGO, because some of those Pokemon cards haven't made it online yet (like the Alakazam line), but I have re-assembled the only ten first-generation decks that could be played in Pokemon TCGO :D

 

My versions only copy the Pokemon cards, not the Trainer or Energy cards. (The Trainer cards would have been too complicated, and some of the Pokemon, like the Nidorans, changed elemental types, so the Energy cards may not have applied in some cases.) So if you saw me in the lobbies yesterday asking for Weedles, now you know why XD Also, for some Pokemon, like "Dark Gloom" from the Devasatation deck or "Blaine's Arcanine" from Blaine deck, I simply replaced those with the non-Dark, non-Blaine versions of the same Pokemon XD

 

So here are the Pokemon for each deck, if anybody wants to know :)

And I learned some things while playing these decks, too :D

 

1. Persian's "Nasty Plot" is like unlimited Computer Search - I got a bunch of different Pokemon cards, Trainer cards, and Energy cards this way :D (But half of the cards I chose to get were Potions, to keep her in the game, haha XD)

 

2. Raticate's "Hyper Fang" will leave your opponent with only 10 HP. If you have a Magnemite in your Bench, you can use it to finish off the Defending Pokemon, then, in the next turn, use Magnemite's "Magnetic Switch" for a free retreat to bring Raticate back :D I did this so many times it almost felt like cheating O.o And I also had Raticate wear Rocky Helmet - I got at least one Prize card that way :D

 

Simple things, but I was pleasantly surprised when I learned about them :P I'm thinking of making a deck with all three of them - what do you think? :cool:
