New player - Standard Rotation Question

Recommended Posts

magicdownunder

Hi, I never played pokemon TCG before so I'm 100% clueless (I do play MTG though).

 

My nephew is interested in playing in local events which only host standard (paper not digital) - if I purchase him something from here Standard Metagame 

 

Most likely this one:

Pokemon (17)
4 Buzzwole fighting $ 2.28
1 Diancie fighting $ 1.85
2 Garbodor psychic $ 0.46
2 Magcargo fire $ 0.56
1 Oranguru colorless $ 0.80
2 Slugma fire $ 0.26
1 Sneasel darkness $ 0.20
3 Trubbish psychic $ 0.39
1 Weavile darkness $ 0.43
Trainer (34)
3 Acro Bike   $ 1.62
3 Choice Band   $ 0.90
2 Cynthia   $ 1.12
1 Field Blower   $ 0.23
4 Guzma   $ 1.76
1 Judge   $ 0.23
4 Lillie   $ 0.68
4 Nest Ball   $ 1.68
2 Professor Kukui   $ 0.38
2 Rescue Stretcher   $ 0.54
3 Shrine of Punishment   $ 9.51
1 Switch   $ 0.13
4 Ultra Ball   $ 1.32
Energy (9)
1 Beast Energy   $ 0.39
1 Counter Energy   $ 0.19
2 Fighting Energy   $ 0.00
4 Rainbow Energy   $ 1.20
1 Unit Energy FightingDarknessFairy

 

It would cost me over 120 AUD which is quite expensive, I was wondering is this a safe buy and will it mostly survive next years rotation?

Hello, magicdownunder. In my opinion, this would not be worth it. I would read the rulebook and create my own deck. Only buy the cards he needs. If he has opened packs in the past, he might not need all of the cards. That is just my opinion. I have not played much standard. I mostly play expanded.  I hope your nephew does well in the local events! :)
