2 Head Ringer
1 Xerosic
1 AZ

Hints / Things to think about

  • Do not be affraid to put Noivern active even if you can not attack with it the same turn. Always remember that it can survive becuase of it’s ability!
  • Lysandre can easily be used to pull out a expensive retreat cost Pokémon for your opponent. This way you may get a turn or two to attack with Noivern without being attacked, that can often be better than just going for knockouts.
  • Having a Zubat, Golbat and Crobat on the field is a good way to max out your bat damage with a Super Scoop Up or AZ.
  • Repeat Ball in hand? ALWAYS try and think on what you want to use it on before starting to evolve your bats.

Hints / Things to think about

  • You never want spend to much of your hand with this deck, play the basic Pokémon you need at the moment. Always try and plan ahead for those Swirlix, if you don’t need them on the bench you better keep them in hand.
  • Sycamore should only be used in the early game or if your hand has been reset by a card like Ace Trainer. Other than that yes, believe it or not but you will use VS Seeker to get Tierno!
  • Muscle Band is a +10 damage when you play it for the Metagross attack.
  • Dunsparce is in the deck to give you a free retreat basic Pokémon.

Pokémon TCG deck – Dugtrio / Eeveelutions [Standard]

Hello Nurglings!

Dugtrio

Pokémon

Trainer

Energy

4 Diglett 4 VS Seeker 4 Fighting Energy
4 Dugtrio 4 Fighting Stadium 4 Strong Energy
4 Hawlucha 3 Muscle Band
4 Eevee 3 Professor Sycamore
2 Jolteon 2 Level Ball

1 Vaporeon 2 Ultra Ball
2 Shaymin EX 2 Korrina
2 Lysandre
1 Shauna
1 AZ
1 Ace Trainer
1 Professor’s Letter
1 Battle Compressor

Hints / Things to think about

  • Depending on the Matchup only focus on getting the correct Eeveeltution in to play, the rest can be discarded to Ultra Balls or even cleared from the deck with Battle Compressor. They are there as a combat enhancer, not attackers
  • After that first Ultra Ball / Korrina / Level Ball always make sure to check how many Digletts and Dugtrios you have in your deck. As Dugtrio is your main attacker.
  • The overall strategy is very straight forward in this deck, put out your Dugtrios and attack, focus on getting that damage out fast and try to get as many prices as possible with your knockouts.

Pokémon TCG deck – Rayquaza EX / Hawlucha [Standard]

1 AZ
1 Hex Maniac
1 Lysandre
1 Professor Birch’s Observations

Hints / Things to think about

  • This deck is all about the all in if you have the second turn, don’t be affraid to waste a few resources if you have the chance to get a good KO on your first attacking turn. It’s one of the main ideas with the deck.
  • No matter what EX you’re looking for, you could always probably Ultra Ball for a Hoopa EX first. This changes with some situations but most often, go Hoopa EX.
  • Yes you’re correct, if your opponent plays a card like Beautifly or Regice, you will have to believe in your Lysandre/Hex Maniac luck.

Pokémon TCG Online – Talking About Anicent Origins w/ ReclusiveSlowbro & WanderingVenser

Hello everybody!

Just uploaded a YouTube vid for the first time in ages! Well, it was recorded live on stream but still a video. It’s Me, WanderingVenser and ReclusiveSlowbro (two other great Pokemon TCG Online streamers) that talk about the latest Pokemon TCG set!

Sadly Twitch decided to mute some of the audio but it’s only about 10 minutes out of 2 long hours. So still plenty of cool things to listen in on.
