guysguysthis wasn't supposed to workthis was supposed to be a memei have stared into the void and it stared back aside from two random unworkable hand starts I haven't lost with this deck.
>>34890370I'm probably going to go to 3/3/3 Cynthia/Sycamore/N but I only have one Cynthia online atm. Difference is pretty minimal, I don't usually even play draw supports after the first few turns. I really should work an Acerola or two as well. Memezone and other zoroark decks are the best matchups from what I've tested (still under 50 games but its promising), buzzwole isn't bad either.
>>34890436>I only have one Cynthia online atm.Buy the Garchomp theme deck, it comes with two
>>34890468yeah i intend to which is why I haven't traded for them yet.
>>34890942I haven't seen that old shit in forever, lol>also, fucking blingfag
bruh don't delete your shit in shame, just get 4 Zoroarks and you can make the contemporary equivalent of that deck. Eggs are still bugged in online so you can infinitely fish them out of discard. Megaray is megaded because Zoroark made it obsolete.
>>34891150>Eggs are still bugged in online so you can infinitely fish them out of discardThat's intended behavior, not a bug.http://www.pokebeach.com/forums/threads/exeggcute-propagation-question.119787/#post-2640222Because of the way the rules of the game treat the hand as private knowledge, each time an Exeggcute is discarded, and in doing so enters a zone of public knowledge, it's treated as a different Exeggcute, so you can reuse Propagation as often as you like.
>>34890039Give me one (1) good reason why anyone shouldn't use evolutions clefairy in the magnezone/dawn nekrozma mirror match
>>34890436>>34890327>>34890370I want to try something along the same lines but with another meta deck, to run BuzzRoc and BuzzGarb at the same time. Not sure whether Klefkis or Balloons are the better choice here
>>34891370don't forget it hits Garchomp for weakness so can kill it with pretty much anything
>>34891481it's a tradeoff, klefki can be searched with ball cards and recovered with stretchers, but takes bench space, so you're effectively capped at 4 bench spaces.I need to include more field blowers because with more testing I've found that Parallel City is a very nasty card to deal with for Zorogarb. Pretty much only Zorogarde runs it these days, but that matchup is already the hardest one for this deck that I've encountered. You slow them down but if they're hitting max potions you have a hard time ending the game before they eventually get a nasty garde up. I'm hoping that magnezone runs all of the garde players out of the meta desu. >>34891370you should always at least consider running it. It's like the sudowoodo of deluge decks. I also like it in silvally decks.
>>34891641Do you think Buzz/Roc/Garb has any merit using the same engine? It can potentially survive parallel better by just leaving octillery
best budget deck?
>>34891701passimian. look at Harrison Grandish's youtube/twitch he did an awesome stream of it the other day. Ended up removing the Lele entirely and doing better without it
>>34891701Depends, there aren't any really good budget options in standard I can think of, but this is a budget expanded list I made. Only expensive card is Dowsing Machine, which can be replaced with a second Lusamine if you don't have one.Of course this deck runs better with Lele/Brigette, but the level ball engine is great.
>>34891694I think the more different pokes you're running the less consistent you will be. One of the issues of running heavy klefki is you're likely to get a klefki start, anyone who played vespiquen remembers those miserable klefki/trubbish starts where you don't find a combee t1, wasn't as big of a deal because you had FOGP, but Zoroark very much needs at least 2 Zorua down early in the game.
Anyone have any insight on selling cards?
>>34891893We'd have to see the cards first.
>>34891759I've been trying to get dugtrio/ribombee to work in standard, is starmie better? I never thought to play it in expanded with battle compressors
Bought a Breakpoint Elite trainer sitting in Walmart, Pulls and free code.
Lady – TrainerSupporterSearch your deck for up to 4 basic Energy cards, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Then, shuffle your deck.You can play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).Just Metal my shit up famalam
>>34892825literally better clemont
>>34891722There's not a single Pokemon card maker that's decent.
>>34892825Four color + DCE meta sounds fun.
>>34893951Multi eeveelution deck would be amazing if it had consistency, but is Lady really better than Letter for that purpose
why the fuck did they print baby lurantis as a promo, only? It's literally impossible to find the lurantis blisters, they sold out the first day they were put out in every local store, sold out instantly online.I just want to try Leafeon memes and they do this shit to me, its literally 5 packs for a playset of this meme card.
I have a fucking TCG addiction bros. I want to spend $23 on the Umbreon GX box.. but I've already went over my Pokemon budget for the month!It's calling my name!How do I stop!?
>>34894010try ebay pal, loads in UK at least, £3 each for promo
>>34894040Which is like 4-5x what other the other blisters were worth, idk why they include such a disproportionately valuable card as a blister exclusive.
>>34894048It wasn't worth much when it came out, it's only now really seeing potential use, it's hardly expensive reallyIt's cheaper to buy the single so no complaints for me really, it'd be nice if more promos were actually playable and not just trash for kids to collect
>>34894029I cant teach you discipline through a 4chin post anon you have to deal with it yourself.But its better to give up the cardboard and just play online, its common sense
>>34893966Lady doesn't fuel a goddamn trashalance
>>34894257>trashalanche>relevantit might be coming back but right now nobody runs it, even buzz/garb players are switching to max elixir and garbotoxin only.
>>34894265Espeon Garb won seniors in Oceana. It's coming back because of buzzwole and sort of forming a triangle with zoroark
Entei/Infernape - Anyone been playing this meme? Decent enough right now with the amount of Grass & Metal around.
>>34894514If the attack was RCC instead of RRC it would unironically be a really good deck. But unless we get a blacksmith pseudo-reprint it's a meme. You can try to run it with baby volc, but then you need Volc, and once you go there you'd be better off running a normal volc deck.If Expanded wasn't so fast/cancerous right now Infernape/Salazzle/Ninetales would be playable.
>>34894093They are starting to get it. The Kirlia promo that's from a single UP blister is amazing looking, the Vikavolt from the triple blister GR looks a lot nicer than the SM set one, and the the UP triple blister with the Alolan Vulpix promo is great too.
Why does nobody use acerola currently? It looks like it has so much potential.
I thought this cancer was only in expandedOrdering 3 so me and my GF's Glaceon GX decks can rock them. I love supporter-tier items
>>34894662You aren't looking hard enough.
>>34894662They do, though. Golisopod loves it and so do mill decks.
Man even just playing theme decks online is funDoes it take long to be able to make a competent deck to compete outside theme? I guess it depends on how lucky you are with packs?
>>34894775You can build a decent standard deck with 2 Garchomp theme decks.
>>34894811Thats a good suggestion thanks
>>34893365That would be insane.
>>34894010I still find it in Walmart checkout lines, generally the "16 items or fewer" lines.
>Toys 'r us going out of business near me>"Oh boy, cheap cards"!>Get to store>Cards not apart of the sales
Alolan Dugtrio is actually a really annoying deck if you don't manage to knock one opponent out first. How do you beat this without annability lock?
Raichufag here, I asked a question a day ago. My only question is now I guess all I do is deck build now? I'm really not looking forward to those Tapu Lele prices lol. In any case, what's the best way to take care of the big card? Raichu is my favorite and I want to keep it safe. Also have 3 more packs too, wish me luck.
>>34895737Oh shit. Sorry for lighting, lamp bulbs are dead...
>>34895760Not gonna spam pics. But just got an Entei GX too.
>>34895774Fucking hell, next pack had a second one.
>>34894527Kiawe T1 obviously. Plenty of time to power up the bench then once the opponent has to keep worrying about switching out of +60/+120 burns.
The camera is gonna duck this up but pretty good for 8 packs, right?
>>34895822mewtwo is cool for collector's purposes but entei sucks sadly, raikou-gx will suck too. Suicune isn't even getting a GX.
>>34896040Mewtwo will be okay with the new Malamar from Forbidden Light
Is Zoroark really the only good partner for Glaceon? I find that hard to believe that such a good ability will go to waste.
>>34896051Mewtwo will never be OK as long as it shares a game with Tapu Lele-GX. Even with Malamar, it has worse damage output than Raikou did in Raikou/Eels and it's a 2 prize card. Not to mention the fact that metal and darkness are two of the strongest archetypes right now which further hinder your damage potential. >>34896069Glaceon is its own worst enemy, since it has to be active for its ability to work, it doesn't put on nearly enough pressure from the active. If we had a card like Donphan from the old days but adjusted for power creep, it might work. But until then it will be second rate.
>>34896069If you get guzma'd your opponent will use abilities again, just quad glaceon is optimal.
>>34896086The only idea I can see is using Shining Legends Yveltal or Umbreon GX both of which have a 30 damage Strafe attack
>>34896107even then you hit the guzma issue that was also described. Zoroark doesn't really care about wasting its supporter for the turn if it means you can do 2-3 trades.
>>34896069>''As long as this is your Active Pokémon...''>Good abilityNot really.
Excuse the shitty pic, it's no where near done but I'm just trying to get close to what that one anon had in the last thread. If I don't want to shell out cash for x2 Lele are there any alternatives? Is Rough Seas good? There more I learn about this, it's more about burst damage, right? I'm any case how much more raichu should I buy? 2 or 3?Thank you.Thank you in a
>>34896245Stupid phone. I thought I deleted that last bit, I am sorry. I can't really get on the TCGO itself atm computer is dead.
>>34895508I mean I don't have too much trouble. If I see A-Diglett I try and set up any pokemon as fast as I can so I can knock it out.
>>34896245Expanded raichu isn't a terrible idea, needs Vs seekers though. Definitely add Pachirisu if you don't already have it, Eelectrik would work too to get extra energy back from the discard
wyr 4 Cynthia or 4 Sycamore In a Solgaleo deck
>>348964283 cynthia 1 sycamore, sometimes you just want to dump the cards in your hand and cynthia forces you to shuffle them.
>>34892825>This in Dusk Mane decks
>>34896601it comes the same expansion where we get lysandre prism star as a hard counter to discard strats so it won't be as busted as it sounds, but yeah its pretty good.also it makes dugtrio viable in standard.
Can Dusk Mane get Magnezone out fast enough to really compete? And if so, what are the best ways to do it? That was my biggest problem playing it on TCGO
>>34896684Yeah, you can be online by turn 2. You need to run a high lele/brigette count to guarantee you get a t1 brigette or the deck falls the fuck apart though.
Fuck it. I got paid today. Do I buy x2 Tapu Lele?
>>34896770gonna have to make that plunge eventually.
>>34896778Grabbing x3 Raichu gx along with it. Since I'm going balls to the wall anything else worth ordering?
>>348968104N, if you're doing expanded computer search ACE spec
>>34896810you looking at standard or expanded?If standard, you want a playset of each of these cards available for deck buildingNSycamoreGuzmaCynthiaAcerolaSkyla (only need 1-2 really)Field BlowerRescue StretcherChoice BandPuzzle of Time (depends on the deck but often used as a playset)In expanded, addColressVs SeekerBattle CompressorExeggute PLFx1 Computer Search (Dowsing Machine is a common poor man's option)x1 GhetsisPlus you'll probably want Zoroarks eventually because the card is busted.
>>34896833Still new, expanded allows stuff from BW era? Or is expanded XY era?
>>34896847forgot ultra ball and rare candy in standard deck staples>>34896850Expanded is BW base set on, they've never rotated anything from it (yet)
>>34896847Wish I wasn't stuck on mobile, would make typing easier. I have choice bands, sycamore, and a few other things. I'll buy the Ns since I don't think I have those. I have skylas just not sure how much. The x3 chus and x2 leles already put me at $100. I think I'll just get the Ns and x2 skyla for now. I'll have to take a look at my box of cards again to see what trainers I have.Thanks.
>>34896879most of the standard cards are like 20-50 cents. Really the only expensive card I recommend is Computer Search since its basically mandatory in expanded.
It physically hurt to order that stuff
I dropped that Lele money and have now spent too much on this game.
>>34897000>>34896947hah, not the same poster
>when you play against someone who has no fucking clue and it takes 22 minutes to play out the game when they lost the second you put a hoopa down and they had no non EX attacker in their deckfuck off dipshit, you can't win the game by chain lysandreing my tapu lele for a 3hko, stop wasting my time
>>34897159Does hoppa ignore ex attackers? Does that apply to GX too?
>>34897282Yes. Alolan Ninetales and Hoopa are the new Carbink and Suicune. I'm playing a refurbished donphan deck and it's actually not bad. Well, it's pretty bad, but I can scum wins off of people who don't have a hex maniac.I also use the Mew with the 'cant be attacked by evolution pokemon' ability
tfw filthy gardevoir (male) player not willing to shell out $40 for a playset of Zoroark yet also not ready to take the Ultra Prism dick
i keep getting half way through designing a weavile deck and end up trashing it, I just can't seem to find a way to give it any sort of power against decks that don't use abilities, and it has the inherent issue of losing damage with each KO like Honchkrow had. Like it's a good card because abilities are strong right now, but I just can't make the deck around it work.
>>34897365You should post a decklist. My guess is you're focusing too much on Weavile, who is not very good by itself. The best use of it I've seen is mixed in a deck with Promo Tapu Koko and the Fairy Tapu Lele running 4 Rainbow and 4 Counter Energies (and also some DCE for Koko). The goal becomes less "punish your opponents for having abilities" and more "punish your opponents for having pokemon in play at all".
>>34897303Alolan Ninetails has a strictly better version of the ability but comes at the cost of being a Stage 1. I'm on hoopa personally but Ninetails is no joke.
>>34898045>strictly betterPrevent all effects of attacks, including damage, done to this Pokémon by your opponent's Pokémon-GX or Pokémon-EX.vsPrevent all effects of attacks, including damage, done to this Pokémon by your opponent's Pokémon-GX or Pokémon-EX.which of these is scoundrel guard and which is luminous barrier? Hoopa and Ninetales are both better than Suicune and Carbink but they have the same ability.
>>34898059For some reason I thought Luminous blocked abilities from hitting it too. I'm on hoopa, like I said lol
Xerneas (BKT 107) has the attack Rainbow Force:>This attack does 30 more damage for each different type of Pokémon on your Bench. Somehow it managed to do 250 damage to me with only a Choice Band and 5 different Pokémon at the bench. This should've done 10 (base) + 5*30 + 30 (Choice Band) = 190 damage to Dusk Mane Necrozma (UPR 90). Is this a bug, or am I a retard?
>>34898410Did any of the benched pokemon have dual types? Volcanion-EX, Galvantula, or Bisharp from Steam Siege maybe?
>>34898447Ah, that might've been the case actually.
>Knock Out 16 opposing Pokemon with your [type] Pokemon.
Diantha – TrainerSupporterYou can only play this card if 1 of your [Y] Pokemon was Knocked Out during your opponent’s last turn.Choose 2 cards from your discard pile and put them into your hand.You can play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).
>>34898879Could be good for Garde if you lose one, grab a Rare Candy and the Garde you lost to evolve another Ralts. Too bad metal is going to be such a big thing.
I really hate the versus point gain animation after every match. I just want to hop back into a game, but I have to wait the 5 seconds every time. I think I've lost a few hours of my life to that pointless shit.
>run 4 N, 4 sycamore, 2 brigette, 4 ultra ball>always start lele>never draw any of the aboveIt's been a tough night.
>>34898879looks like rainbow road is back on the menu boys
>>34898998Metal is shit until Solgaleo and that’s October.
>>34899545uh lmao no. There's one new top tier metal deck in standard with DM/Magnezone, it's the spiritual successor to the old Kyurem B deluge decks.It's not the worst matchup for Gardevoir, that's Dugtrio which becomes standard viable with SM6. Maybe even sooner, I haven't been able to work out a standard list that wasn't janky but Dugtrio is still a huge threat to non-zoroark Garde due to how easily it hits the 120/150 marks in midgame. Once Lady is in the game, it becomes a real deck in standard.Solgaleo is going to be another big metal deck on delay until we get the turbo strike one, but we also have Silvalley getting more support, it's now at critical mass in terms of what the drives and Magearna let it do with weakness. Fighting, Psychic and Fire memory let it hit weakness on all of the major meta decks, and a few metal type pokes thrown in round it out.
>>34899572Magnezone is overrated as fuck shitter. It loses to everything, even Gard, if it doesn’t draw perfectly. Dugtrio is a meme and no Clemont is going to help it. Silvally is a better metal deck than either.
>>34897159I bet you're one of those volcanion masturbators that need 20 minutes to setup their hoopa chain
>>34899819the opposite, i only play fast. I usually take like 5-7 minutes per game.
>>34899572Can't be tiered if it's not even seen a tournament yet. Maybe top tier in your opinion, but your opinion is worth less than worthless.Volcanion is as good as ever, and Glaceon has fallen a bit more flat than expected, meaning Volcanion will continue to be as good a ever. Which means who the fuck would play metal and trade prizes at a loss to baby Volc which is definitely going to feature on the competitive scene.
>>34898879I know this is made for Gardy but I love Xerneas break and this is nice for it. Especially if you can recycle a max elixir and have a rod/recycler in hand>>34899996Volcanion is one of the only decks that actually eats an impossible matchup to Weavile unless it runs a heavy Ho-Oh / turt like and doesn't play volcs or leles down. Necrozma GX also eats it alive and it's starting to see Standard play in new Espeon Garb deck lists
>knockout 12 pokemon with your fire pokemon>turn 1 kiawe>opponent scoopsEVERY TIME
>>34898879>diantha>bonnieWhat's with the XY trainers so late?
>>34900490SM6 has a Kalos theme, like how Ultra Prism had a Sinnoh theme.
My leles are on the way. Anyway Question. Is it better to build around a specific card or do type decks work? I kinda want to do a Lightning/Water.
>>34900490The sets seem to be ultra s/m and another gen mixand so far they seem to follow the "year of legendary" releases for the gamebeing that sinnoh legendary right now for ultra prism and the kalos legend release will probably come around by the time of the next set which is XY themed.if this trend does continue, unova is next, then hoenn, then johto.
>>34900037>Weavile>in any way relevantI'll give you Necrozma though. That can be a tough battle. But still>starting to see playIt's not prevalent enough to worry about. Not yet, at least.>>34896069I've been splashing it into a Leafeon / Decidueye deck to make use of all the extra eevees that go to waste otherwise. It's been working out better than anything else I've tried with it. Lots of Brigette, lots of nest balls, 6[G] - 4DCE - 3 [G/W] Unit energy, Energy Loto to get the right ones.>T1 Eevee to active, fill bench with Rowlet & 1 more eevee. Grand Bloom>T2 promote Glaceon soft wall & snipe with Decidueye OR attack & heal with Leafeon.Now your Grass deck has an attacker to take on fire decks too.
>>34900522Why not try cherrim for supportI fought a grass deck recently that was a cheeky mix of leafreon, cherrim, and lurantis for big hits and no weakness.
>>34900490I predict the next two sets will be:- Unova themed set with Ghetsis Prism Star , Reshiram and Zekrom GX and Alder supporter- Kanto /Johto themed set with Giovanni Prism Star , a Lance supporter and the original 3 Eeveelution GXs. May or may not be a Rocket themed set with something like the Dark mechanic returning
>>34900511It's usually best to build around ideas that either hit good numbers for 1HKOs or do amazing at getting 2HKOs while winning the prize trade. Lock-down and mill also work.Synergy within a type is definitely something to look out for. Having two energy types isn't usually ideal unless you're rocking something like VikaBulu.
>>34898879That anon looking at Puzzle of Time should be happy
>>34900682Is there really a point of getting 2 puzzles with this when you could just get the 2 cards you'd normally get with the puzzles
Im a noob but isnt this card insanely good?https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Rampardos_(Ultra_Prism_65)
>>34900953You have to evolve it from a fossil and you can't rare candy fossils. So no, not unless we get something to make fossils less janky. They're not as bad as they were in XY block but still not quite there.An item or supporter or even GX move that let you play stage 2 fossil cards directly on to fossils would make them viable.
>>34900845>Two stages, one of which is a fucking fossil that can be sniped and gives out prizes>Three colored energies>150 HP >Worst retreat cost>In a meta where evolutions are relatively commonIt would have been good in an older meta
>>34901013Makes sense, and it is weird that fossils have no perks like there is no point to them they might as well get rid of them like they did with babies if they are not going to get special qualities, like KO a fossil should not give a price for startersThanks for the input
>>34901087fossils have always been kind of bad. I'd like it if they brought back robosubs as fossils though.
>>34900515>>34900584I don't think we're getting Kanto or Hoenn because of Primal Clash and Evolutions.
>>34901102If not we're still getting prism stars for all the villains and I would bet on a Rainbow Rocket themed set
>>34901013>you can't rare candy fossilsYou can on PTCGO, I don't know if that's the intended behavior or not.
>>34901165Pretty sure that's the intended behavior. It's an Item Card before it gets played, and a Basic Pokemon after it gets played, so should get all the same rulings as each respectively.
>>34898744>tfw when you only have one deck>daily missions are never about Metal
>ditto theme deck match>game says someone has an advantagewhat
>>34896272Obviously, but what if you don't have time to knock out the first one?
>>34901678Advantage is based on rating, not decks.
>>34901712Oh as in how many of those thunder icon points you have?
>>34901761No, the rating system is hidden. That's just your victory points towards ladder reward.
>>34901803Well thats weird, any idea what factors into the rating
>>34901826Your Elo-rating goes up when you win and down when you lose. Unfortunately Pokémon Company is retarded and doesn't display your rating anywhere.
>>34898879In expanded, you can play 2 of these and Life Dew in a deck with only fairies and robo substitute to drag the game on forever.
>>34900845You can get 1 puzzle with it if you have it in hand and then get 3 cards.
WHO THE FUCK IS DIANTHA
>>34902883Champion of the X Y seriesaka irrelevant

>>34901165You can also evolve a stage 1 shieldon into a stage 1 bastiodon
>>34902883every NPC in XY is a literal fucking who except for Sycamore honestly. There isn't a single entry in the franchise with consistently less memorable characters.
>>34903152I thought it had better characters than gen 1-4Or well it had characters at all period for the first time even if they werent good
>>34903181without using bulbapedia how many can you name though?I think it's honestly hard to argue that gen 6 doesn't have the least memorable characters in the franchise, yeah gen 1 didn't have a lot of 'characterization' but the designs were good enough that you could pick them all out of a silhouetted lineup. Gens 5 and 7 both had great characters.
>>34903269Now you are arguing designs, we clearly have different standards, not that I expect characters from pokemon and they just get in the way even with good designs I just thought Sycamore and Lysandre relationship and the 1000 year man story were neat whereas I never thought that much of any character in gens 1-4
>>34902883Don't talk shit about second best girl.
Any of these any good/worth anything?
Alright bros. All of a sudden I'm unable to connect on my PC. I'm gonna try uninstalling an installing. Wish me luck.

>>34903407Hour .5 of no PTCGO.Organs failing.Hope lost.

>tfw you find this playmat and you cant get it because you dont live in burgerland>it has my favourite pokemon on it as welllife is suffering
You've gotten her, right anon? I mean, you wouldn't leave one of the usable full arts sitting just outside your reach now would you? There's only three days left...
>>34903665>sylveon's wide open soul burning eyes"It's alright child, come near."
>>34903665Import it from Sushiland then
>>34903667I got her last time she was on the ladder, just aiming for the 5x packs this time around
>>34903667what is the best theme deck for versus?
>>34903740Garchomp is the best available atm.
>>34903740either garchomp or empoleon. if you dislike garchomp mirrors, empoleon.
>>34903443I'd like if they made Giovanni akin to our current Archie/Maxie, but with no type restrictions. Giovanni deserves a better card after Giovanni's Scheme got outclassed by Kukui.Yes, it would make T1 Vileplume a thing again in expanded, but it would be a lot harder to pull off.On the other hand, it would allow some awesome comebacks, specially on stage 2 decks.
Does anyone know what the Pin Collection box codes give?
>>34903883Usually just the promo that comes in the box.
bought more textureless cards. why do I do this to my wallet?
>>34903887what a rip.Guess I'll be giving away the code. I'm the Anon who lost his Mimikyu pin. I don't have the need for a second code in game.HBJ-4R2G-PRM-PD_Good luckm folks!
>>34903903Are these fake cards or what? I have the espeon... It's pretty
Kadabra, Barboach, CarbinkWhismur, Klink, Klinklang, BlastoiseYveltal, Bonsly, ZubatZangoose, Noivern, Metang.
>>34904027Nothing good, but I appreciate your cleverness nonetheless.
>>34904109hey, that raticate is a pgood card.
>>34904114>stage 1 with 60 hp>evolves from a basic with 30 HP>in a meta with Buzzwole>goodthe filename is "RATICATE MEMES" for a reason
>>34904109Sorry for the worthLess Pulls.Maybe you'll get something better with this.XHZ-NBQK-9_X-W__
>>34904017they are real, just an error where the texturing on the full art is 99% missing. you can see spots of the texture on it.no clue how that happened or what their texturing process even is.
>>34904434Forgot to take a screen shot, but I didn't get anything decent except a Mt Coronet from that one either, think I used up all my luck during the UPR release. Thanks for the packs though.
Xerneax-GX – Fairy – HP180Basic Pokemon[C] Run Through: 20 damage. This attack does 20 damage to 1 of your opponent’s Benched Pokemon. (Don’t apply Weakness and Resistance.)[Y][Y][C] Aurora Horn: 120 damage.[Y][Y][C] Sanctuary-GX: Move all damage counters from your Pokemon to your opponent’s Active Pokemon. (You can’t use more than 1 GX attack in a game.)When your Pokemon-GX is Knocked Out, your opponent takes 2 Prize cards.Weakness: Metal (x2)Resistance: Darkness (-20)Retreat: 2
>>34903907Someone ows you a pull pic.
>>34904798Is it just me or is this pretty underwhelming? Might make a decent tech for Gardy but thats it. The attack costs are awkward and the GX is nice, but not great in every match-up (Nice against Buzz though)
>>34904965Yeah, I can see it as a x1 on fairy decks, but that's it. It's a very situational healer.
>>34896684>>34896705I run 2 bridgette 2 skyla 4 ultra ball and 4 rare candy. no magneton. i usually get zone out by turn three. i was on a 17 win streak until i got really shit luck against a luc/ chomp
Kartana GX botting?
>Bonnie card cares about ZygardeAre there any other anime reference cards?
What's a good non-ex/gx attacker? I'm worried my Raichu and Leles will get butt blasted by Hoopa and ninetales, was it?
>>34905712Oranguru's a solid choice for most decks, with colorless attack cost for an attack that can OHKO a Hoopa or Ninetales that have three energies on. In Lightning decks, Raikou BKT is a solid option, can hit decent numbers and is relatively tanky with its ability. Alternatively, Zekrom SHL, or Lightning Oricorio if you think you can survive a turn and not get Guzma'd to make use of Feather Dance.
>>34904462>no clue how that happened or what their texturing process even is.I vaguely remember there being a mention of laser etching being used for ultra-rares around NXD's release, so it's probably that.
Was Yveltal revealed before now?
>>34906133Nope. Any translation for it?
>>34904965I could probably see it being used in Xerneas BREAK decks just to have a GX attack for the game.
>>34906197I prefer Necrozma for my GX attack
>>34906150Heal equal to damage doneIgnore Weakness/ResistanceIf Active has 4 damage counters, KO.
Is there a site like mythicspoiler.com for Pokemon cards or do I need to trawl through seven thousand Pokebeach clickbait articles to be up to date on the newest set?
>>34906233Seems underpowered or is there something I'm not seeing?
>>34906334They're both pretty bad. The only good use I can see for Yveltal is in an expanded deck with Dusknoir and Koko/flygon for a free KO
Haven't played in a very long while. Is seismitoad still a solid deck in expanded and if so can somebody pass me a list? Want to put my four FAs to good use. I have some good trading fodder in an extra FA Shaymin and a regular shaymin just need to know what i've got to pick up.
>>34907455>shaymin>good trading fodderuh, buddy, I don't know what to tell you.
>>34907455It's not as overwhelmingly good as it used to be, but still very solid. Two main variants I see played are Zoroark, and Seviper with Laserbank.

>It's another "you start off with Lele" episode
Is there any reason why I can't bot for all the VS Rewards with a deck consisting of 1 Kartana GX and 59 Energies, taking a single prize and conceding to earn a single point per game?
>>34900584>lance supporterhere's my idea :Lance - supporterDraw 2 cards. Until the end of your turn, each special energy attached to each of your [N] pokemon provides every type of energy but only provides 2 energy at a time.
Decklists are due before 8:30 tomorrow. Don't be a fuckup.
>>34906416How do we put 10 more damage on buzzwole's jab to the bench?
>>34904798Alohan Ninetales gets that GX for double colorless lol
Decklist for Collinsville. Looking for sugestions!! The letter is supposed to be a energy retriever and the flipped over cards are supposed to be the 4th copy of the trainer.
>>34907988Alolan Nineties only moves damage counters from itself though.
>>34908005I probably wouldnt bother with Dialga desuCut the letter for 4 Mt CoronetOctillery or Oranguru over Zoroark
>>34907913btw this should read "special energy CARD" becuase no it isn't supposed to double your DCE's into Quad dragon energys
My chus came in :)
>>3490800510/10 would smash with volcanion
>>34907618The developers monitor players that concede too often (players were abusing that system on Legacy). They will notice something fishy on your account, you will probably receive a warning then get banned.
>>34907618don't concede, that triggers investigation. Guzzlord and Swampert EX are the two most commonly botted decks.
rate my ultra prism boxI want to know why tf I got so many duplicates, all of my prism stars were in packs with GX cards.
>>34909684Seems like you had fun. You're required to build the fucking deck.
>>34909740yeah, it was a pgood box, also got enough garchomps to build that deckBut in all of those packs I only got 2 Cynthia, and they were in the same pack. Not pictured was the Zoroark box I ordered because I got 3 Zoroarks in my SHL super premium collection and figured I'd just round off the set.And I pulled a Zoroark from the box, so now I have 5. Also pulled a RR Garde from my burning shadows box, I wish I had such good luck online.
is literally everyone on /vp/ attending collinsville and flying out today?dead thread dead tcg
>>34910359Dunno...I'm still here. Only cause I'm new to this. Speaking of which I have 38 code things for packs and stuff, does these things expire? I've legit had them in a box for a very long time now. I used to collect cards and just impluse buy but I've gotten into the game now, are these still good? Oldest expansion there is, is XY I think.
>>34910402i found some old codes from BW that were still good a few weeks ago
>>34910419Okay cool, gonna input them now. So from what I read, it's best to use packs as trading power right? What exactly is the "value" of a pack? I'm trying to build a Raichu GX deck and would like 3 more of the buggers, I only have one. I also need a lot of trainers, would it be like 1 pack for X trainers?
>>34910426pack value depends on the set, Raichu is a pretty affordable card.sadly most of the early XY sets are low value, look in the pastebin, that value chart is a bit outdated but pretty accurate. High value sets are a few of the good BW era sets, HGSS sets and recent god tier sets like Guardians.
>>34910446Shame about XY, I'm about halfway done redeeming but it looks like they're mostly Fates Collide. Gonna check the value on that one, I also have a Mega Mawile collector thing. Thank you for the help.
>>34910460FAC is recognized as one of the worst sets of late XY blockAt least it's not Evolutions.
>>34905242One of Axew PLB’s attacks lets you search for an Iris Supperter card. Barring that and Ash-Greninja-EX, I think that’s it.
>>34910465I’ve been able to flip three FAC packs fot one Guardians Rising/Ultra Prism pack, but really should try to offer less.
Well, this is all I have.6 generations8 Shining Legends1 Sun & Moon2 Guardians Rising12 XY2 BREAKpoint3 BREAKthrough1 Evolutions12 Fates Collide1 Steam Siegegonna check their values and see what I can do.
>>34910359i mean i just have to wake up and drive over the river
>>34905242Depends on what you mean by reference; there's a whole Japanese exclusive deck kit with artwork by the anime illustrators.
Would BREAKpoint Lapras be good for a Raichu-GX deck? or is the Water energy not worth adding?
Good luck to /vp/ tomorrow. Reminder: check in for those that need it tomorrow is 7:45-8:30. If you need last minute cards vendors are probably open if you can get there, get your cards, and update your decklist online to reflect them, and then check in. May the guzzlords be with you.
>>34911191rofl not at all, that card is jank garbage, even in a water deck, searching attacks fucking suck. N is in every deck, you can't reliably plan across turns with the hand you have at turn end whatsoever. Raichu runs just Pachirisu/Raichu/Lele, it's all you need. Run 3 Lele 3 Brigette for a guaranteed t1 nuzzle love party (be sure to run nuzzle pikachu from GEN). Some variants used to run Raikou or Electrode but those cards are strictly worse than a well used Pachi. I'd run thick lines of Wishful Baton, a t1 baton on your initial pachirisu would be ideal to preserve your energy.
>>34911231I see, I'll get some Pachi then. I kinda want to be a karen fag and throw some random shit in there, I don't think it'd hurt. after all my new as hell and don't think MM matters. also as far as pack value goes, if I understand it properly packs with x1 value can trade for packs with x0.50 value, correct? how exactly does this transfer over to cards? Like if I have 7 Shining Legends what're my chances of getting at least two lele with those? I have more packs than just those. Thanks.
Little bro is getting into TCG so I asked him which pokemon is his favorite and he said Exeggutor. Fukin kek kid is doomed but his taste is based.I went out today and bought 3 AExeggutor gx, 1 normal AExeggutor and 2 Venusaur families and some grass filler namely Shaymin and Virizion from shining legends. Is there a way to make AExeggutor deck less of a dick?
>>34911258>chance of getting 2 lele for 7 SHLabsolutely zero, have to do some serious tradejewing to build up enough value to trade for Leles. A 1 value pack is worth 2 half value packs. The main tradejew site has Lele listed at 23.5 packs value right now, which means you are basically guaranteed to be able to get it for that price, though you can get it a little lower.Even if you put up actuarially fair trades from a value perspective, people are generally more hesitant to accept lots with more different items in them because it requires them to know/look up the values of each card in the lot to get a sense of whether the trade is fair, and many of the people trading Leles are also going to be flipping the cards/packs they get.One of the tricks for building value up is flipping packages of in-demand commons/uncommons, you can use uncommon chests or low value packs to trade for playsets of them then relist them as smaller lots for the same packs, or for higher value packs. After a new set drops there are usually some major whale buyfags who drop shitloads of money and open tons of packs, and are looking to get rid of their bulk quickly. The packs thing isn't a hard and fast rule, some people don't discount old sets quite as heavily. Right now Guardians Rising, Shining Legends and Ultra Prism are trading at parity. Guardians and Legends both have god tier chase cards and Legends is a buyfag only pack which artificially inflates its value (Generations, despite being a mediocre set trades at near parity due to not being available in the store). Whatever the newest set is usually has inflated value until everyone's got their playsets. ULP has some pretty good cards so it might remain at or close to parity.
>>34911361Not really, if you can't get t2-3 venusaur its basically over. So I guess build the list to ensure you hit that, high Lele/Brigette count.So many fucking decks are totally dependent on that play, I wonder what the meta's going to be like when it rotates, along with N/Sycamore who have been standard legal continuously since the early-mid BW era.
>>34911367Ah, I see. I understand a bit more now. You see, the last time I ever had to deal with any "in-game economy" was with TF2 years ago. So yea, this stuff is slowly making more sense.
>>34907570Every time, and then because of it I whiff the T1 Brigette.
>>34909684It's this all from one box? I thought they were only averaging 3 prisms.
>>34911543Yeah, one box. I'm pretty sure it was either a fucked up run or just stupidly lucky.Every one of my prism star packs had a GX in it.
>>34911558That's crazy lucky, from what I've seen of people opening ULP you definitely got way over the average. Duplicate GX in one box (excepting FA/rainbow variants) also seems to be uncommon.
Is it just me or is this purugly actually a cool tech in a control oriented drampa or espeon/garb deck?Run mars, tormenting spray and/or delinquent, make them discard hard and fuel trashalanche
>>34911652if toss aside was DCE costwise it would be a good card, otherwise it's memecore.
>>34911665played a few games, won them and never once attacked with the catMars on the other hand, is putting in work. But I have to wonder if I'd be better off just using Tormenting Spray and being able to play another supporter the turn

>>34909621>>34909447Good to know. How about seppuku with his shuffle attack? Or is it better to play it through and get Knocked Out?
Wanna try something new but I'm at a loss of what to go with. I have a Zoroark GX deck ready but I'm not sure what to put with it.
>>34912161Zoroark GX is so strong and versitile that i can partner with a lot of pokemon pretty wellI ran him with salazzle for funny results

>>34912155as long as you lose rather than conceding it wont be investigated typically. But you should do guzzlord if you can write a bot for it because it will actually win once in awhile.
>>34912754the absolute madswede. The balloon variant is something I enjoy more and more because of the versatility balloons give you. I think ideally you want some mix of balloons and klefki.Also trashalanche garb makes the deck too inconsistent, I've abandoned it for mewtwo evo.
>>34912754>Commentators missing that Jimmy hit the field blower for the guaranteed win unless he gets N'dJesus christ this commentary is painful
>>34912631Seriously, i cant watch it in my third world internet

>>34913466first result when I typed pokemon tcg in the search bar/playthechampionships_tcg
>>34911361It works a lot better in standard. Turn two or three Venusaur is super doable with 3 copies each of Skyla, Heavy Ball, and Rare Candy. On top of triple Lele and Quad Ultra Ball, and 2-3 Brigette.
literally all of these popular deck blurbs have at least one typo, did they have a fucking dyslexic type these up?
>>34911652I don't really get what Own The Place does.The "If you do" part is ambiguous. It's "If you discard your opponent's stadium card" or "if you have a stadium card in play"?
>>34913526if you use the attack and it succeeds in discarding an opposing stadium (you can't discard your own stadium with it, and you can't choose to not discard an opposing stadium when attacking if one is present), purugly gets an effect on it that makes it immune to any effects of attacks next turn. It's not the attack you're playing the card for but can be situationally useful to stall for a turn.
Is ultra prism legal in that tourney
>>34913720yes, someone literally just played metagross/dusk mane

ST. LOUIS /criticalhittcg
>>34913734didn't watch the end, it was against buzgarb and down 1 game with like 5 minutes left on the clock. I assume he lost again but might have drawn.
Is this card good
>>34913824pram is running it
>>34913824It's threatening, it is used like Trashalanche Garb but for abilities.
>>34913824>>34913856When the inevitable fairy/fighting/dark unit energy comes out in Ultra Prism I think Buzzwole/Weavile could be viable
>>34913824It has tons of potential but until garbotoxin rotates garb is the most cost effective ability hate. But any deck that runs darkness energy should consider running this card because of the aforementioned trashalanche effect, you can completely turn a game around with a stage 1 attacker that attacks for 1 energy, if you have a sneasel benched at any point in the game that play is an option. >>34913868It's already viable, just worse than buzz/garb imo, it would make it better though, you're right.
