Anyways, I have two questions first I’d like to get the deck I’ve created some feedback, advice and overall stratesgies that may or may not work:

And off all the cards I recently invested in, and the fact that I have more electric energy cards than any other, this was the best I can come up w on my own. Like I said I’m jumping back in after about a good 3-4 yrs and I xan use ALL the help, criticism, and feedback I can possibly get.

There is a local comic/board games store where they hold Pokémon games for fun and occasional tournaments and I’d love to start there and ascend into a magical journey of the Pokémon world lol jk but seriously

Friday I get my check from work and I plan on investing in a 3ds and Pokémon sun or Moon so I’m diving head first into this thing.

not new to Serebii and sites like that neither, have been a memeber for years and it’s one of the first places that popped in my head when I made the decision. I have plenty of other cards and plan on getting more.

 

Hit me back yo and help a 28 yr old get get back on his shwifty high horse

I’m also a bit confused on the energy cards like most of the psychics I’m using only have basic cost points mostly and I have more electric energies than any other that’s y I went with an electric/Psy deck.. Please let me know where I went wrong and if somebody TRULY wants to help I can go over the rest of the cards I have, cus grass is my fav type kinda wanted to make a grass/dark deck but idk if I can yet. I need a lot more energy’s of different kinds.

Here’s a place down here that have Pokémon TCG matches every Thursday and I want to get into it and continue building an epic deck, maybe go competitive some day as I plan to do when I get my moon version and 3ds Friday

Short breakdown:

  • Too many Energy cards

  • not enough draw supporter

  • trainer cards are to thin ( you want 4 copies of your important cards, in order to ensure that you draw them on your first turns every time – remember that setting up on turn 1 and 2 consistently is the key to victory)

  • too many random Pokemon (stick to a strategy and try to build your deck around 1-2 strong attackers and 1-2 supporting Pokemon)

 

Its difficult to judge how high the “competition” is in your local store, but I can safely say that in any tournament setting you'd get torn apart. Usually the best course of action in those scenarios is to visit the event, talk with the local player base and see if they can help you. Nowadays its fairly easy to get the cards you need online and a decent stock can also be obtained from theme decks (especially the uncommon trainer cards that build the core of any good deck.

 

I'd also advise you to browse a couple of threads here on the forum, simply because a lot of advise has already been given to beginners and it can be a bit tedious to repeat it every time. Just clicking through the first page here on the subforum will arguably give you plenty of resources and insight on how to build a deck.

Hey thanks for the info I’ll def take heave to it and incorporate on rebuilding my deck. The reason I chose electric as my main type was because simply I had the most energy cards of it but I’m gonna do some research and edit my deck. I have a lot of good cards but not many energies for each type

 

Also, my main goal was to do the 20-20-20 ration of cards but I see that’s not the case at times

To be honest 20-20-20 was never a viable option in this game.

It's interesting, isn't it.  Older theme decks have somewhat different ratios- about 28/14/18 compared to 23/16/21.  Both give very inaccurate ideas of how to build good decks. :P Still, I think the shift is interesting- they're now teaching the importance of draw support, which is good- but they made the energy situation even worse, and instead of reducing the number of evolution lines, just got rid of useless basics, which teaches that evolution pokemon are always better- something completely wrong.

 

I wish they made more and more prominent battle arena decks.  But it'd be nice if they could do it without identically reprinting old cards. ;)

Since you're here in these forums, I'll say it: The online game can help playtest your deck. You'll need to do online trading to build it.

 

Some other things that I'm not thinking of because I've just woken up.
