About a year ago one of my friends gave me all her sister's old Pokemon cards she was.. "borrowing" so I could play the TCG with them. I got a Regigigas level X and a hundred or so newer cards + my 4th grade era stash of old cards. So I just bought the Regigigas tin and threw everything together into what I thought was a good deck. It seemed to work, it reliably beats all my friend's decks with no trouble except one with Donphan that it can go about 50/50 against. Some of them are super-into the card game (they have thousands of cards and play in tournaments) so they brought me to a local tournament place. I won every match I played except one against some guy with a Donphan and I think Claydol.

I have no idea about the metagame at all (I didn't even know what Unlimited meant until 10 minutes ago) and I don't have many cards.

3x Multi Energy (http://pokebeach.com/scans/ex-emerald/89-multi-energy.jpg)


Anyhow, the idea of the deck is to just get Regigigas out and start killing. I have to stress how new I am at this game (I don't know what a level X card actually is!) and how few cards I have. lol, I don't even have the right energies for some of my Pokemon! Unown ? is a great thing to search for with Holon Mentor once I have Regigigas and it can play mind games with Regigigas X and Drifblim (who has never once attacked, I just put it in for the free retreat cost!). Drifblim and Drifloom are useless, I need replacements.

The Trainers are pretty much random. Switch helps remove effects besides status like "Bite On" from a Mightyena (http://pokebeach.com/scans/legends-awakened/66-mightyena.jpg) my friend ALWAYS uses. I think it also lets me use Giga Blaster consecutively, but I'm not sure. Quick Ball is relatively worthless as it only draws one Pokemon and 90% of the time it seems to be Drifloon. Mary's Request is pretty good and so is Holon Mentor. They're pretty much all draw and search cards + 4 Switch.

Call Energy collects some Unown "?" and doubles as a "retreat" energy for my active Pokemon when Regigigas needs to come in. Its not bad, but theres probably something better out there. Multi-Energy is awesome, it all but guarantees I'll have all three colors I need for Gigas.


I'm willing to place 10-20 dollars into this deck I guess. I was told to use this Abomasnow (http://pokebeach.com/scans/stormfront/12-abomasnow.jpg) to beat Donphan; which looks good because it can hurt benches and Regigigas is often 20~ damage short from killing stuff. Theres also Expert Belt (http://www.pokemontradingpost.com/images/Arceus/87_Expert_Belt.jpg) which makes Gigas even bigger.

Oh wow a post. Yeah I found out about that from you IRL, and Clefairly doll apparently does the same thing.

Maybe Myseterious Fossil + that Aerodactyl that prevents evolution. With a really good hand I could have a full powered Regigigas on turn two and a benched Aerodactyl preventing evolution?

Um, righto (why is a couple mor hp useful when you can heal 80 dmg per turn?). Suggestion Drifblim SF, reason, it's setting up your rigigigas and with the specific energy it needs to run asap. Drop the quick ball for more Roseanne's so you have easier access to your energy. Warp point is more disruptive then switch so it's something to consider. Junk arm instead of felicity's and you run gust of wind with that it becomes incredibly useful. Since this deck could hit trainer lock consider a cessation crystal.
