Bug? Or does the game let you win sometimes?

I misclicked and chose the wrong move once, resulting in what should have been a total sweep against my team. However, the opponent (Zach) just sat there with his Miltank w/ 3 energy cards (enough to do Miltank's move) turn after turn after turn...I had the absolute worst RNG and didn't get any energies for ~10 turns in a row. And Zach just sat there...attaching energies to benched pokemon and evolving them, but never attacking. Was that a bug? Or did the game not want to win?

 

Even after Miltank was killed and a Pidove was put in, Zach kept using Pidove's non-damaging move to look at the card on the top of the deck, despite having enough energy cards to use the attacking move. That happened 4/5 turns in a row.

 

Zach only had 1 prize card left to claim to win. Regardless if anyone says otherwise here (probably from misunderstanding what happened), I'll likely remain convinced the game wanted me to win that match.

 

I HATE easy games or participation trophies. However, based on threads I'm seeing in here, these trainer challenges indeed get harder, so I'll hold my breath.

It just happens. I think that the CPU gets locked onto a move as soon as they use it even if they can use another one they still continue to use the move. Also I think that when their Pokemon comes into active and can use both of its attacks it's like a coin flip as to which one they use. Tbh I think the whole trainer challenge is outdated and they need to change some things and update the cards the CPU uses.

For some reason the AI only attacks in a turn they also attach energy. It's a really weird bug they introduced when they removed the ability to select difficulty level.

If you want a challenge, get a Theme Deck from the Heartgold/Soulsilver era, or a Trainer Kit.

All the trainer challenges are easy - too easy. You'd have to genuinely try to get beat in order to lose in the Trainer Challenges.

 

It doesn't improve sorry to inform.

Yeah A.I is dumb. You can deck out them if you really wanted every time, but i just use their stupid a.i to stall if i have bad cards. Then i switch and 1 shot everything.

 

 

But i suppose T.C is suppose to help player to understand the game and perhaps build up their confidence? I dont know, but  i myself am new to tcgo and still finishing all the Stars.

One day I actually found out that I could win by attaching a protecter Pokemon tool to a Snorlax and my (A.I.) opponent would keep drawing cards, meanwhile using an attack that was completely negated, thus they ran out of deck in 30 moves. I un-offically called it "The Patient/Lazy Method", because you just wait the A.I. out.
