I've played every pokemon video game religiously since the beginning, and I know the games and their mechanics pretty much inside out.
Since I'm in the UK, I've never really had the chance to play the trading card game, as not many people here play it...
But me and my friend want to get into it so.....

How should I begin? I'm a TCG noob, and there are so many different decks, different generations etc. Where should I start? What deck should I buy to start off with?

Thanks
