    What i meant is that we can hurt people by what we say or do with out the intention of doing so.

    I'm sorry I got emotional. Its just that I'm fed up with comments like "Ok pu in 2 pokemon 1 energy and 57 trainers you may not even have or may not be capable of getting."

    I live in Mexico City so I have no easy access to the TCG so plz take this into account when rating any of my decks. Sometimes the best I can do is having 28 energies in one deck(I've already reduced that number to 21 but with an extra ordinary effort and some not-that-good trainers).

    Let me say I'm sorry one more time. Next time plz take into account that sometimes 28 energies and 12 trainers can be a good strategy, not always and not the perfect strategy but it worked(Kinda).

    Ok, I'm sorry too. I go to alot of hi-end tornamants and I need to make a very good deck in order to get anywhere. I'm not used to giving advice to normal players.
    I think people need to start posting what kind of cards they have access to so that this problem doesn't happen again.

    Will the rules be updated?
    Because, almost all of the cards that are mentioned are not useable anymore.

    You mean here? That modified legal card list is up to date. The only thing that isn't up to date is the example deck, and that can stay the way it is. Remember that the sets don't rotate out untill September 1st.

    Agreed. This was made 3 1/2 years ago. Pidgeot, Battle Frontier, Oak's Research, Wally's Training, e.t.c. can no longer be used in Modified, which most people play.

    Heres's a list of cards mentioned that *gasp* CAN be used in Modified.

    Switch
    Potion
    Rare Candy

    Yeeeeaaah....

    What i meant is that we can hurt people by what we say or do with out the intention of doing so.

    I'm sorry I got emotional. Its just that I'm fed up with comments like "Ok pu in 2 pokemon 1 energy and 57 trainers you may not even have or may not be capable of getting."

    I live in Mexico City so I have no easy access to the TCG so plz take this into account when rating any of my decks. Sometimes the best I can do is having 28 energies in one deck(I've already reduced that number to 21 but with an extra ordinary effort and some not-that-good trainers).

    Let me say I'm sorry one more time. Next time plz take into account that sometimes 28 energies and 12 trainers can be a good strategy, not always and not the perfect strategy but it worked(Kinda).
    Do you have a post office if so I'm willing to trade energy returner cards to you for collector's items (basic one's I don't have).

    To be honest, i've never seen anyone post a deck list that has an energy system, IE, e.restore, e.retrival, burned tower, power tree, fisherman's, etc. cards that return basic energy (I never make a deck without one, it make's the deck flexible and thins it out at the same time allowing new cards out of you're deck, a technique to actually increase synergy and draw power).


    This above me is a deck list that shoulld be in the deck rating area >.>, I give it three goldfish. If you're going to run those kinds of trainers and supporter's, 1 is not going to do anything for this deck.

    23 is not too many energy. Though you may have too many grass energy and not enough psychic, since your deck seems to be mainly psychic types with less grass types.

    OthersiderME@23 is a bad number for energy cards, also you run to many pokemon, and not enough trainers.



    J20hawkz@You also could have just posted this by itself, we don't really post deck ideas in here, just ways to improve deck construction, ect.

    Just for the pokemon, you need set names, otherwise we have no idea what they are.

    As for the T/S/S
    -1 or -3 elms training for 1 more wallys training, the reason to this is it's played down instead of having to have the rare candy or take an extra turn to evolve wasting you're turns having to draw into the second elms, or search card, wallys training does by-pass this all (and since you run fluffy berry, you could put in something like keldeo EX, just for the use of switching pokemon around, w/o using switch).

    -3 energy search +2 roseannes research, 1 card versus 4 and it lets you search for pokemon.

    -2 Interviewers for +2 Prof oaks new theory, new hand versus and very 50/50 shot at drawing nothing.

    Thanks a lot Ven. Should I start a new thread? Also how do you know the set names? Sorry although I have been playing for some time I took a massive break. I am not familiar with all the new decks and packs as such. I literally popped into tesco, saw a few decks and booster packs on sale and bought them.

    Edit: reason I run the fluffy berry is because I focus on Yanmega U-turn attack. It allows me to attack with 50 damage then switch it with one of my benched. I normally tank with the Nidoking, attaching a fluffy berry to it so I can retreat for free and repeat with Yanmega again. I don't think out of 20 or so games my Yanmega has been knocked out this way.

    Then they must not run tool scrapper, windstorm or gust of wind.

    We have a card errata for serebii http://www.serebii.net/card/dex/

    It's a not bad strategy however running 1 fluffy berry, float stone, etc isn't very consistent, if you where to run 2-3 it could create more synergy in using U-turn, but again it's slightly better to run the keldeo to lets say wallys training turn 1, keldeo/rereat.

    This deck kind of seems like gothitelle/accelgor, paralyze back to the deck using mewEX (copying accelgors paralyze and poison, goes back to the deck for 50+30 with virbank), bring out gothitelle (trainer lock) and tank.

    Thanks again. But that's why I run the 2 switch as well. I normally use haunter and sandslash. Mainly because they have 0 retreat cost. But I wanted to try out a more tank approach with the Nidokings. So far I have won 5 games in a row.

    What is your ultimate deck list?
