Hints / Things to think about

  • This deck plays very differently depending on your Matchup, some games you will focus heavy on Sceptile EX second attack. And at others Giratina EX ability and attacks. If you play the deck alot be sure to learn and understand when yo focus on which Pokémon.
  • M Giratina EX is great for healing but also for putting those two extra Energy cards on to your Giratina EX on your bench.
  • Sceptile EX first attack may not seem but much. But some fortunate flips can turn a game around,
  • Ariados attack stops your opponent from retreating, in a bad situation remember this as you can Lysandre out a weak or Pokémon without energy you can stall the game (hopefully) for a few turns.

3 Professor Sycamore
2 Revive
2 Switch
2 Lysandre
2 Muscle Band
1 Hex Maniac
1 Professor Birch’s Observations
1 Teammates

Hints / Things to think about

  • Ultra Ball is not only a way to find Shaymin EX and discarding Night March creatures. You can also use it to search for a extra Night March creature in the early turns to discard when you play a card like Sycamore.
  • If able, always try and go for the 2 price knockouts, it truly does not matter if this gives your opponent a chance to get Knockout the turn after. The important thing is to be ahead, not to save your Pokémon.
  • Is that a Pyroar? Hex Maniac is the answer!
  • We no longer have Mew EX as our extra/good attacker, but we do have Revive to give us a second chance with those creatures.
  • If you can not afford Shaymins: Try and get a 2-2 line of Milotic with the Sparkling Ripples ability (Primal Clash)

4 Noivern 3 Super Scoop Up
2 Shaymin EX 2 Repeat Ball
2 Lysandre
2 Professor Birch’s Observations
2 Muscle Band
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.

2 Lysandre
1 Professor’s Letter
1 Sacred Ash
1 Switch

Hints / Things to think about

  • This deck has some incredible damage output with some tiny Pokémon. Together with Muscle Band, Strong Energy and Fithing Stadium even the weekest can do plenty of damage.
  • The main strategy is to attack with Mienshao and Hawlucha (when you can), and keeping them alive by either bouncing them back to your hand or putting a Focus Sash on either of them.
  • Do not be affraid to play Focus Sash on your important Pokémon even when they are on your bench, especially on your Mienfoo and Mienshao. Becuase you can bounce it back to your hand and change the equip later.
  • A good trick is to have two Mienfoo active early, this way you can play your Mienshao every turn and bounce them back. While using Robo Substitute and Hawlucha with Focus Sash as active sacrifices.

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.

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.

2 Enhanced Hammer
2 Switch
2 AZ
2 Lysandre
1 Battle Compressor

Hints / Things to think about

  • This deck is mostly about winning slowly, small amount of damages to slowly kill of your opponent Pokémon. But be sure to use Toxicroaks second attack to get faster beatdowns.
  • Lysandre is a huge tool for you in this deck, pull something out, poison it and watch it fade away without the ability to retreat with Dragalge on the bench!
  • Crobat is also a attacker. Believe it or not. And can even do so while you’ve locked your opponents active with poison.
  • Becuase you do not have a huge amount of burst damage, make sure to focus your damage on important targets (EX’s especially for the double prizes).
  • Even tho you need to focus your damage, do not forget to calculate for turns where you can get double KO’s with poison and bat sniping.
