Was this game ever good?
If so, is it still good?
Also, you must post in this thread if you played Haymaker back in the day.

Base Jungle Fossil was amazing.

Fuck if I know, but I haven't heard good things.

Well, you've got me there. Even if it was generally inferior to Rain Dance.
I wish there was a format where EX's are banned. Regular evolutions can't compete.
I own a Pokémon Draft Cube that uses the card pool of the first gen. It's pretty good for drafting with your Magic players.
Pokémon TCG players would never touch it because they are afraid of alternative formats and Draft specifically.
I always said that since deck searching and drawing is easy and awesome in Pokemon, allowing stage 1 and stage 2 cards to not count towards your 60 card limit would be phenomenal and give those decks the extra tools it needs to compete with EX Pokemon.
>What are the big strong decks in the meta?
The meta is currently very diverse. It feels very healthy,and a lot of archetypes have the possibility of doing well. Some of these include:
Mega Manectric variants, usually bats
Metal w/ Bronzong
Rayquaza variants, both megas
There are other tier 2 decks that can catch local metas by suprise, like Charizard/Entei, Mega Sceptile ect.
>Are the Team Aqua and Magma cards legal? Is Team Aqua's Kyogre a good deck?
Yeah they are. It was like a 35 card mini set that came out a few months ago, all standard legal. None of the cards from the set are really playable, including the Groudon and Kyogre. Nice cards to have in a binder though.
Cool. My LGS has a scene for it. Filled with kids but eh, it's expected with fucking pokemon. Trying to find a deck I like with some cool art for the pokemon I dig. New Gyarados EX looks cool but I dunno if it will actually be good.
Yeah, that Gyarados won't be released in English or another month, and won't be legal to play foranother 3 weeks. Someting about pokemon ensuring that everyone can get a hold of their copies in time for competitions of something. Still not sure how I feel about that.
But yeah man, just have a look at a few of the archetypes I listed (left of a big one, Night March), and see what jumps out at you. I'd recommend Vespiquen for a first deck. Heaps of fun to play, and relatively cheap. Luckily, in Pokemon the most expensive staple is Shaymin EX, which will set you back around $30 a piece. You only really need 3 though. The rest of the deck will be comprised of cards that are less than $2 each, with VS seeker being the only possible exception. With that said though, the VS seekers and Shaymins can be used in any deck, and are just useful cards to have if you're wanting to get into the game.
