Alolan Ninetales

I know this section is basically dead but the format post Guardians Rising is actually outstanding imo since Garbodor and Guardians Rising completely changes the way decks are built and played. The game is far slower now since any kind of turbo deck just gets waxed by Garbodor. And I really like this deck and Pokebeach sucks so Im posting it here


In case you don't know what Garbodor is http://shop.tcgplayer.com/pokemon/sm-guardians-rising/garbodor




4-3 Alolan Vulpix/Alolan Ninetales

3 Tapu Lele GX

2 Drampa GX

1 Oranguru

1 Tapu Koko (getting a 2nd copy today online from a friend, will probably cut Drampa or Oranguru for the 2nd)


4 N

2 Hex Maniac

2 Lysandre

2 Professor Sycamore

1 Brigette

1 Brock's Grit

1 Delinquent

1 Hala

1 Olympia

1 Professor Kukui

1 Teammates


4 Aqua Patch

3 Ultra Ball

2 Choice Band

2 Field Blower

2 Float Stone


4 Rough Seas


8 Water Energy

4 Double Colorless Energy


Thanks to Beacon (Alolan Vulpix's first attack that requires no energy) this deck doesn't have to use Ultra Ball to find Pokemon which gives it an edge in the Garb matchup.

Drampa is just a really solid attacker, I don't have any way to put damage on the bench myself for Berserk but Righteous Edge is really solid in the mirror and vs. Garb, and his GX attack can unbrick me for 1 colorless if things are going bad but ideally I never want to use it in here since Ninetales is so much more difficult to deal with while it still has its GX attack.

I don't like VS Seeker as much anymore. Its still good but I think due to Garb I'd rather just play a higher Supporter count and keep my item count down.  

Aqua Patch is amazing for putting pressure on them with Ninetales. You just have to be careful about managing them vs. Garb so the prize trade doesnt become uneven.

Ultra Ball is a card I'm undecided on, I don't want to cut it completely since it's still the best way to get to a Tapu Lele. But realistically after the first one I don't think I ever want to see a second copy since Beacon should be getting me to my Ninetales and more Leles.

Shaymin is still a good 1 of I think, but I've kinda liked Oranguru so far since it works better with Brigette and stops me from losing to late game Ns followed up by a knockout while I'm ahead. Plus it's not really Lysandre bait unless they are trying to stall.
