Which expansions have good cards? Advice needed.

Hey I need some advice, Ive pretty much been a collector of the cards for the past few years. I'm a little out of the loop as to which expansion has good cards for battling.

 

 

 

I've been picking the Black and White packs so far but I got a few more packs yet to pick and I was wondering if any competitive savy players here have any advice as to which sets would be good picks.

 

 

 

TCGO uses the most recent Rotation from Heart Gold/Soul Silver to Black and White. Thanks!

The original HGSS and Undaunted, IMO, have the best sets. Also, check out pokegym.com. They're a better site to ask this question.

I'm just getting back into it, but have been studying it pretty intensively.

 

 

 

For trainers HG/SS main set seems to be the way to go (along with B/W), and great primes come in Triumphant. All the sets have worthwhile stuff, though. I'd check out card lists and see what stuff you need for a deck you want to run.

Ahh... I took a look at my old card hoarde, and made myself a pretty decent Fire/Fighting deck, mainly based on that awesome Machamp card.

I'd avoid Call of Legends, but all the other sets are quite balanced. HGSS has great trainers, Triumphant has great Pokemon, and Unleashed and Undaunted are somewhere inbetween. Black/White is also very interesting, and has a few nearly game breaking cards. TCGO gives u 10 of each HGSS and Unleashed, so you could either strengthen the lines you get there, or go for the sets you don't have.

It used to be, but now it's been ruled that you can only use it after your Pokemon has been in play for a turn, so nowhere near as powerful. Still useful in certain situations though.

Interesting, wonder if the online game will reflect the rule change?

Heart Gold Soul Silver and Triumphant is far surperior than every other set going on from HGSS. If you're really competitive, go with these sets. Avoid Call of Legends and Undaunted. Unleased is decent, and I don't know much about BW.
