1 Ace Trainer
1 Sparkling Robe

Hints / Things to think about

  • Getting a first turn attack with Entei is not impossible with this deck. Always see if you have the options to do a first turn KO before wasting your supporter for the turn. Becuase you need to use Blacksmith to make it happen.
  • You do not always need to do your strongest attack with Entei even tho you have the option. Sometimes, you just want to tank up with Hard Charms and use ”Flame Screen” to set up a KO for next turn while being able to tank alot of damage.
  • Never forget, fire Energy in the Discard Pile is a tool for you with this deck.
  • Play a fire Energy or draw two cards with Scorced Earth, in most situations the card draw is correct to give your more options. But it all depends on the situation you’re currently in.
  • Entei’s second attack can do a maximum of 170damage in one attack. Make sure to punish those Manectric Exs’!

1 Rare Candy
2 Switch
2 Silent Lab
2 Lysandre
1 Shauna
1 Hex Maniac
1 Xerosic

Hints / Things to think about

  • First turn? Yes please! Nidoran with Wally turns in to a turn two Nidoqueen that can deal plenty of damage. Turn one Phantump with Wally locks your opponent down. Always take the first turn!
  • If you get a Trevenant lock early, do not be affraid to play Silent Lab to give your opponent even less option. Sure your Shaymins will be dead in your hand but your opponent is probably already having a hard time now as it is.
  • Remember that Nidoqueen can knock out TWO Pokémon in one turn. If there are plenty of week Pokémon currently being played in the format, you can really abuse that fact.
  • Remember that Trevenant can actually do plenty of damage with a Muscle Band attached, you do not always need to keep them for Nidoqueen.
