  12. Beginner's Guide - PTCGO Theme Decks

    In card games, there are two near-universal truths: 1. Cards from the first sets are dumb and broken. Then, the designers figure out how to build a game. From there, the power starts to creep back over the years. 2. Starter Decks suck and should never be considered in a competitive environment. Over time, the Theme Decks have (1) gotten much better than they used to be, and (2) still manage to never see the light of day when discussing competitive decks. However, the Pokémon TCG Online has tossed the Theme Decks into their own special format, making them the best starting point until you build up a Standard-Viable deck. Charizard With good matchups against most of the field, a 2-Draw attacker, an attacking line that provides its own energy straight from the deck, and a 2nd viable attacking line with Nidoqueen, Charizard manages to be the most consistent deck, and boasts a favoured matchup against every popular deck barring the Water deck, which it gets hit for Weakness by. This is probably the best starting point for a new player. It is the most popular deck. This deck also allows you to force wins via 50-50 coin flips using Rapidash's Agility to dodge damage. While not a great gameplan, it gives you something to fall back on where other decks would leave you out of luck. Dragonite Nearly equal in power to Charizard is Dragonite, which has both Basic and Stage 2 attackers to rely on. Dragonite's 170 Damage attack is strong enough to KO everything in the format, and back-up attackers like Lanturn can give you a KO as well. This deck can win against Charizard, but is just slightly less consistent. Kyogre Kyogre's claim to fame is simply that it can donk Charizard decks due to super effective damage. It has some OK attackers, but is certainly a tier below them. Groudon Groudon is an overall better deck than Kyogre, as it has energy acceleration from the hand rather than discard (and a lack of consistency in theme decks means you usually have more energy in hand at the start of games). It also features a lot of other solid attackers, but it falls short of the variety and usefulness of the top two decks. Necrozma This deck is mostly purchased because it has access to cards you might use in a budget deck outside of the format. It also does not rely on Evolved Pokémon to make its attack, but it does rely on drawing a 2-of Special Energy that cannot be searched in order to break the 130 damage barrier which most big basics of the format have. I'd avoid this one. Apart from these five decks, check out various others and see if you need any of the Supporters from them. The Zacian and Zamazenta decks have cards like Metal Saucer and Professor's Research, and the Mewtwo deck has Welder. Getting your staples from theme decks is generally better than any other method, as Tokens are not a valuable resource in the game.
  13. Since the original post, most cards have rotated out, so I wanted to give a small update with a few new options. When judging formats, 2017 may have been a "better" one, but this format remains fun and may make the game easier to get into than ever before due to the introduction of competitively-oriented sealed products known as "League Battle Decks." Let us repeat something from the original post: 2020 Format Staples--Unlike in 2017, we have a larger swath of archetype-specific trainer cards, but we still have a good set of staples worth picking up to make things easier. I've included the most universal ones, along with other universal-type cards that just don't see quite as much play. I've left out cards that are staples to specific archetypes (e.g. a Stage 2 deck will be running Rare Candy, but not every deck is a Stage 2 deck). SUPPORTERS 3 Marnie 3 Boss's Orders Good to Have: Professor's Research, Cynthia, Sonia ITEMS 4 Quick Ball 4 Switch 2 Reset Stamp 2 Escape Board Good to Have: 4 Pokégear 3.0, 2 Scoop-Up Net, 1 Tool Scrapper, 1 Friend Ball POKEMON 4 Jirachi (Team Up, has Stellar Wish ability) 2 Dedenne GX (Unbroken Bonds, has Dedechange ability) Next, here are some decks that do very well for their cost: Pikachu & Zekrom GX The recently released Pikachu & Zekrom League Battle Deck recently released. Inside, you will find Jirachi ($18 x4 card), along with an entire rest of a deck. This package costs $25 dollars. It is intended to be locals-viable out of the box, and to remain legal after rotation in August. However, that last part means it is missing a few of the power cards that will be rotating out. Here's an example decklist you can use to compare to the contents of the box. Also note that if you play using the Online client, this product comes with a card code that allows you to gain all of the cards online as well. This is probably the best product I've seen since the release of Yu-Gi-Oh's Master of Pendulum structure deck, which, upon release, had 1 player top cut at my locals with literally nothing but 3x copies of that deck, and which had the rest of the top cut being that deck with more cards added to the extra deck for variety. Reshiram & Charizard-GX This is Pikachu & Zekrom's counterpart deck, which also just released. While not as sought after as the Pikachu one (as this list does not include Jirachi), and while a weaker deck once fully fleshed out, it actually has a great head-to-head matchup using the stock $25 lists due to the Pikachu's decks relative issues with energy acceleration. Instead of Jirachi, this uses a supporter known as Green's Exploration, which lets you grab two Trainer Cards when you don't have any Pokémon with abilities in play. Here's an example list of a deck that maintains the Green's engine and saw some success at a tournament. Example Decklist: Due to the need of every deck to run either Jirachi or Green's Exploration, it is difficult to justify picking a different deck as a starting point. However, I'll include one other option: Galarian Obstagoon Galarian Obstagoon's attack, Obstruct, prevents all damage done by un-evolved Pokémon. If you look at the two deck lists above, you'll notice there are 0 Evolved Pokémon in the Pikachu list, and only 1 support Pokémon (Omastar) in the other list. The non-budget decks of this format, such as "Zacian ADP (Arceus, Dialga, Palkia)" and "Blacephalon" share this trait. This makes Obstagoon a strong anti-meta contender. If the decks aren't teched against you, you can obtain a lopsided matchup almost impossible for your opponent to overcome. The downside, of course, is that decks that evolve, the most popular being the Grass-Type Rillaboom, will thrash you all day, especially as they hit you for Weakness! Obstagoon decks rely on a few other attackers to take out evolved Pokémon, most notably Sableye V, who deals 10 damage + 60 damage for each damage counter on the opponent, allowing it to take advantage of the 3 Damage Counters Obstagoon places with its Ability when it comes into play. Example Decklist:

    Eevee had a stroke or something last night at around 3am. The emergency vets described it as a 'one off neurological incident'. It was horrible. She couldn't walk and was bumping into walls. She is 100% back to normal already. So strange.

    As the Smith family go on a camping trip, Rick receives a call from Gaia, a sentient planet, that she is pregnant with his children. Rick reluctantly takes the family to Gaia, where they witness the birth of the first generation of Gaians. Rick denies being the father, but he and Beth build an advanced city for the Gaians so they can become a self-sufficient, spacefaring civilization. Their system to determine professions for the Gaians ends up ejecting "Unproductives" outside of the city. Meanwhile, Jerry takes Morty and Summer camping in Gaia's wilderness. However, Summer bitterly accuses Jerry of using camping as an excuse to make himself seem important. Hurt, Jerry flees the camp while Morty and Summer search for Rick and Beth. Jerry eventually makes contact with the Unproductives, whom he raises into a primitive, tribal society with a hate for technology. Morty and Summer get lost and find a crashed spaceship, which they repair but lose control of. Just when Rick and Beth are on the verge of completing their project, Jerry leads his army of Unproductives against them. At the same time, a godlike entity named Reggie arrives. Gaia admits that she made a mistake, and Reggie is the true father of the Gaians. Reggie attempts to take custody of his children, but Rick refuses to stand down. Reggie empowers Jerry while Rick gives Beth an advanced gun, leaving the two to battle each other while Rick personally fights Reggie. Beth and Jerry fight to a stalemate, but Rick quickly finds himself at a disadvantage against Reggie. Reggie is about to crush Rick when Morty and Summer accidentally ram their spaceship into Reggie's head, killing him. Reggie's body falls to Gaia, destroying Rick and Beth's city and killing many Gaians. The impact causes Beth to fall into a crevice, but she is saved by Jerry. Furious at Reggie's death and the damage Rick caused, Gaia chases the Smith family back into space, leaving the surviving Gaians behind to fend for themselves. Jerry admits he only wanted to go camping to make himself feel important, and Morty and Summer apologize for their rudeness. Angry at the family taking Jerry's side, Rick coldly calls out Beth's parenting by revealing how Morty and Summer killed Reggie. In the post-credits scene, Rick watches a commercial for "Planets Only!", advertising steamy, hot planets. Summer catches him in the act.
  19. i would donate more to get ancient mod, necro mod, or administrator
  20. i have the second one ill start playing it soon; gotta beat tms first though
  21. Mafia Champ Celebration Mafia(Scum wins Fuckfiend was final scum)

    People do it every game. This isn't anything new. The excuses fuckfiend used though are definitely out of bounds tho and the picture thing to confirm a story has been banned before (Tyranno SS his role pm, ACP posting his schedule, Gaia posting a pic of the lunch he was eating). It honestly should be banned. If you were busy and had shit to do, that's fine. We get it. Real life things are more important. But don't involve it in the game. If you get called out on a lack of activity, either make this a higher priority and contribute more or make better contributions so people don't want to kill you. You don't have to post a lot to get townread.

    I got xenoblade chronicles because I really enjoyed the second one but the combat system is different and I dont know how I feel about it but I'm still about to play the shit out of it. I've got a rare 3 days off so hopefully I can make some good progress, though I do want to go to the beach at some point

    Absolutely not. It was an indicator stick thingy because they don't stay off and I think the grindy bit that clicks into place has just worn. I do have a plushie pokeball and masterball for the back window but it's actually blacked out so nobody can see it :'(
  24. no problem, send me a pm with your general rates; i wouldn't be asking for donations if i expected to get graphics assets for free lol
  25. I see. As a Graphic Designer I can do some graphics for you. Right now I don’t have my website up yet to show you a portfolio of my work (the best I can do is bring back my old site, but I don’t like a lot of the work there tbh). Of course not for free, but just saying that I exist as a Designer.
