The set sucks.
Is Deck Wizard reliable? If not for making good decks, then at least for making a good jumping off point?
vs seeker + lysandre = dead slowbro. it's a cool little card that will probably see a tiny bit of play as a come-from-behind tech, but you have a hard time actually getting to 1 prize with a fully charged slowbro on the field since its so flimsy. pretty well-balanced considering the normally wonky balance of the game in general.
You know what, it's been a while since we had deck wizard caps posted.
Let's do a few.
an attack that costs three energy
if you can attach a dce and another energy in a single turn you might as well use those energy on one of your attackers that got you the other 5 prize cards to win the game
Please tell me there isn't anyone dumb enough to actually consider this card?
>Use Deck Wizard
>Want to make M Rayquaza deck
>Wizard puts M Sceptile Spirit Link in deck
Gee, I wonder.
>deck wizard for shits and giggles
>it gives me a 59 card deck
>game glitches out and crashes
Man this drawing has been fucking rough. Practicing with Yveltal/Gallade and my Maxie ability gets ruined by shit like turn 1 double Maxie with no balls/BC in sight or never seeing a VS Seeker unless it's accompanied by 2 more, usually before a BC. Just came from dead drawing a hand of Maxie, Gallade, VS Seeker and DCE with only a Yveltal and Shaymin on the board.
Love thow Meganium is getting some love with this bundle, but I need HGSS base for the special print energies.
How many packs do you think they go for? What about the DCE?
tfw we will never get HGSS-era prints of fairy energy with Togetic or double dragon energy with kingdra
I made a really quick rough mockup. The background is supposed to be the Sprout Tower (because you get the togepi egg at Violet City and there's no specifically fairy-based location)
It's okay, but Undaunted is useless outside of unlimited thanks to the lack of reprints (Unleashed has 3, HGSS has 5 plus the Basic Energy, and CoL has the holo HGSS Energy).
>Love how Meganium is getting some love with this bundle.
Funnily enough, this isn't the first time the promo Meganium Prime's been available on the TCGO (it was a wheel prize 1-2 years ago along with the other promo Johto starter Primes).
>PokeKyun collection's initial reveals are all shitmons
>then a passable Flareon-EX is shown
>then another decent Jirachi
>then the best Charmeleon yet
I'm not quite sure what to think. I guess they almost tried for the non-moeblobs.
True, but the thing about HGSS Energies is that they use locations that are associated with the Johto region.
>Only "good" because it makes Fairy playable.
Florges-EX also fills that role, but you do have sacrifice Fairy Garden for Sky Field if you want to OHKO EXs.
Promos and bundles that you otherwise can't get
Packs will get you nothing you need. Even if you magically pull a good card, you definitely won't ever pull enough copies of it to make a deck with. Would you rather spend thousands of tokens praying to get a playset of whatever EX, or would you rather just trade six packs for all the copies you need
Find a deck you think is good, go for a standard deck cause they are usually cheaper, and copy it. Then go after the cards in that deck until it is complete. Now use that deck in ticket tournaments and win packs and chests, trade those winnings away for other cards you need for other good standard decks.
You can always pull the card you want as long as you believe in the heart of the cards
>Fates Collide will feature Zygarde in its many different Formes, Alakazam-EX, M Alakazam-EX, Altaria-EX, M Altaria-EX, Umbreon-EX, and Lugia BREAK. This means these Pokemon will likely be in Japan’s own XY10 set, Awakening of Psychic Kings, which will be released on March 18th.
>There will be over 120 cards in the set, including five Pokemon BREAK, 10 regular Pokemon-EX, and three Mega Evolution Pokemon-EX (Alakazam, Altaria, and an unknown). So there will be 13 Pokemon-EX total.
so break evolutions aren't actually for evolutions anymore. PCL probably are too shit to be able to make them good so they just make their precious little big basics even more OP instead
also that 'mystery' third break evo will probably be audino. two moeblobs and m-alakazam for megas. probably not the best choice for selling packs.

This is why you never give up. Even if you're not good, you can fake it.
>"During your opponent's next turn, prevent all effects, including damage, done to Umbreon by attacks from your opponent's Pokémon that has any Poké-Powers or Poké-Bodies."
Since B&W Poke-Powers and Poke-Bodies are made into Ablities.
So does that shit work for Abilities? Because TCG:O basically doesn't care about that.
Nope, Poke-Bodies and Poke-Powers are considered separate from Abilities.
Looks like somebody didn't read the free portion of the recent Pokebeach article on City Championship decks.
So, is there a place to print checklists for all the sets?
I spent the past 5 hours going through my cards, pulling doubles, and putting them in binders. I still have one last stack that's about 15 inches high though.
Almost fucking done.
Are you joking?
>need to have a Stadium in play and 4 energy just to do 200 damage
>need to run 5 stadiums for consistency
M Mewtwo X is trash. Just because some nobody posted it as a premium article doesn't mean it's good.
Pokebeach are trashcans who just play the same braindead shit everyone else does and think they're good at the game
When I read about one of them gloating how great they were for getting a lucky blind Red Card on an opponent and then just swinging with Lucario-EX all game it may just have been the hardest I've ever dropped a website's articles
Alright this game does not want me to play Maxie/Archie, I can never draw what I need no matter how specialized I make my deck. Wasn't like this a month ago, I could turn one Maxie about 50% of the time and almost always by turn 2, now I consistently draw my stage 2s or both Maxies/Archies and never see Balls or VS Seekers to manage my hand. Good thing Yveltal is fine on its own.
>opening is Shaymin, Gallade, Gallade, DCE, Maxie, Maxie and Zoroark

Looks like yveltal survives whatever the next rotation is.

Super new, just got 2 tradable uncommon reward chests, what can/should i trade them for?
22 of next month. Fucking excited! I love mew! You guys mind if I post my mew collection so far?
I also have a collection of mew plush and old still in box toys. Mew has been my favorite since I went to see the first movie in theaters.
Also not pictured is the 2006 Mew tcg coin from shadowquake I still play with.
You can probably do that trade, but if you're new, are you sure you want your first deck to be Gengar, especially without the rest of the deck?
If you go with it, just make sure you put up 1 chest for 2-2-2 instead of 2 for 4-4-4
Great collection man, it's pretty far along. Mew is also my favorite 'mon, has been ever since I first read about in the RBY guidebook. I don't have much outside of this tcg collection but I would love to pick up any other Mew merch if given the opportunity, especially next month's box.
I have a problem man! Also since I work at gamestop I'm probably going to buy all the boxes at the end of the day when it comes out.
>get to take home the tcg posters and stands
Woah nice! Not a fan of the shiny though. Pink is the one I collect. I'll take a picture of my toys too.
It's getting to be about as expensive... Dat employee discount on packs though.
Here are my toys and like 2/22 of my plush collection.
Someone said Skyla is just a one of now, doesn't need two full arts
Someone else for some reason said it used to be run in three's several formats ago
Both of these are true statements. No one lied.
>Someone said Skyla is just a one of now, doesn't need two full arts
>Skyla, a supporter only ever used as a one-of in some decks, gets two full arts
something here doesn't match up
there it is!
Hey guys my dad is mr pokemon and the next FA from the vs ladder will be Professor Birches Observations!
Just kidding its lysandres trump card
Give this man a medal, he got it right.
Oh, and the regular Pokemon are Bronzong PLF and Aegislash PRC.
>A fourth Bronzong to square me out
I'm okay with this, it's the first ladder that doesn't have shit I already have or JUST traded for
Does the ladder have the rare chests like they promised?
basic green is pretty much the best now yeah
watch me predict Maxies hidden balltrick for the next one and fail.
Anyways my dad is mr Pokemon and he said it would be Maxies hidden ball trick
I use basic green and blue, depending on what I'm feeling.
basic green vs basic blue is really close to be fair and it's a really interesting matchup
it's probably the closest thing to a "skilled" theme deck matchup if you can believe that such a thing could exist
Any thoughts as to what I should take out for Delinquent?
> TotT: Are there any new decks you're planning on building out of BREAKpoint?
Houndoom/Bunnelby with Delinquent.
>BREAKpoint prerelease happening this Sunday.
Good, now I'll have some fun.
Unfortunately they do, so >>25054804 dream of owning a SR Ultra Ball is one he might not see.
But hey, at least he'll get that FA Shaymin-EX he's been wanting.
In terms of usable cards, Breakthrough had Zoroark, Gallade, Octillery, Mewtwos, Magnezone, Raikou, Typhlosion, Houndoom, Skyla, Float Stone, Assault Vest, Fisherman, Heavy Ball, Super Rod, Giovanni, Parallel City, and Rainbow Energy off the top of my head.
Breakpoint has Greninja, Gyarados, Manaphy, Golduck, Garbodor, Garchomp, Trevenant, Scizor, Max Elixer, Fighting Fury Belt, Delinquent, and Reverse Valley.
I think they're about the same. I personally feel Breakthrough had a bigger meta impact off Zoroark, Gallade, Octillery, and Mewtwo alone, whereas only Garbodor and maybe Scizor look viable, not counting the Belt.
I don't think it works like that with the Pokemon themselves, does it? In a deck you may have up to four different cards with the same Pokemon name so a shittier Seismitoad-EX could still be played along the existing one provided they're in the same format, like what people do with Mega Mewtwo X and shit.
Going by Gen 5 and even Platinum's Charmander line reprint we all know that rotated-out Pokemon that are functionally identical to a T to a reprint in rotation can still be used like with the Trainers
Well, with the impending doom that this snowstorm is bringing to the east coast, I don't think I'll make any of the pre-releases this weekend. However next weekend there are 2 within an hour of my place so maybe I'll make the trek. Any anons going to a pre-release this weekend?
The point is that the new subset and Breakpoint have cards that are either literal reprints or just slightly different. Yveltal, M Gardevoir, Flareon EX, Manaphy, Greninja, Mind Reading, Fighting Fury Belt, Golduck, Raticate, the list goes on. There's virtually no innovation. The most creative cards in the set are OP's Slowbro, the shitty Meganium, and the absolutely unplayable Ho-oh, which is pathetic.
We might as well not even have had a rotation if we're just going to get the exact same shit again.
>We might as well not even have had a rotation if we're just going to get the exact same shit again.
That's entirely true
I have a feeling the current PCL staff were hired from Gen 5 or something and can't figure out what the fuck to do
Nah, break is a gimmick like Ancient Trait was and will be gone by the time Z rolls around and they have actual content to use instead of needing filler.
EX has been here since technically R/S times. It's further been here as we know it since like HG/SS. It's not going anywhere
Stage 2 Pokemon are slow, but they're not so slow that you auto-lose against big basics. And the chances of getting at least two fire energies off a five-card mill isn't that low.
Lucario-EX is not only one of the more consistent decks, but also requires about 12 IQ to play.
Use it alongside FuF Hawlucha and PHF Crobat for an utterly brainless way to defeat most decks.
GLACEON EX FUCKING WHEN?!?!?!?! I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YEARS
>making half of each player's deck do nothing so that they have fuck all to think about each turn
oh wow my turn is draw, play supporter, maybe attach or evolve and attack, nothing else to it
Except you have to take prizes to win, and you have to do it faster than your opponent. Which takes skill, because you have to know when and when not to turn off your item lock.
But if your dumb ass thinks it's so easy go ahead and throw it together on PTCGO and see how many wins you get.
I have 100+ full decks in all three game modes that I switch between constantly, and I've played this game enough to have finished every ladder to date with 4000+ points. I can count the glitches I've experienced on one hand, and half of them were connection problems. I have a big enough sample size to suggest this isn't anecdotal or coincidental.
Night March conceded to my deck on turn 1.
Oh my God, the salt...
Which is why most players pair Vileplume with either Giratina (with Tool-lock, Stadium-Lock, and Special Energy Lock) and MIltank FLF (hits like a Mack truck for only one Energy and only gives up one Prize card if KO'd) for Standard.
And for Expanded, people just say "fuck that noise" and run Toad alongside Giratina-EX.
I'm getting really fucking bored of never getting good games any more. Every match is decided on turn one these days, or by who goes first. They must've fucked up the RNG or something because pre-Breakthrough it wasn't this boring. It's a near certainty either I or my opponent gets an unusable, statistically unlikely starting hand it seems.
>A deck that requires skill.
But I will admit it's a good way to filter out idiots.
>and are there any leaks of the new cards?
Yep, we got a set leak a while ago.
>Night March with Mew required skill.
And even then, you'd have to be careful of shit Like GarboToad locking you out on T2 (or T1 if they were running Wally or Silent Lab).
>and don't run into Wobbuffet
Or run into a Pokemon with Theta Stop.
Run Mewtwo + DCE + Laser + Muscle Band. Run Seeker + Jirachi for a guaranteed kill + Shaymin/Shiftry pickup. Run Shauna for the possible double Celebi stallout. Run Escape Rope for the occasional Wobbuffet with a bat on the bench. You'll still lose to multiple Wobs if they run Flare or EH, but it gives you the chance to win against him.
Really the only losses I get are the RNG fucking me like prized cards or decks that get off 3 or more Wobuffets turn one and have hammers.
Your obviously to thick headed to see that M-mewtwo x is viable. Dimension valley for starters making his attack that OHKOs mostly everything in the game only cost 3 energies. Mega turbo is a card as well as lando for energy cheats.(max elixir soon). I have and run this deck btw. So in the time it takes (turn 2) them to ko my lando I have a 220hp monster who can hit for 200damage with no drawback... sounds like trash to me your right
Espeon ex, Archeops, and Pyroar is going to suck. Might need to run more than one Sex maniac and 3 vs seekers if it catches popularity.
It's alot of set up but what can you do without maniacs when it is set up?
Where does /vp/ think the new Garchomp belongs? I want to use the previous Gabite that can set your bench up with dragons but he cannot find this Garchomp. Maybe thinning the deck that much makes it viable? Or should we just 4-2-4 with rare candies?
Garchomp – Fighting – HP130
Stage 2 – Evolves from Gabite
[F] Assault Turbo: 60 damage. Choose 1 Energy card in your discard pile and attach it to one of your Pokemon.
[F][F] Biting Pledge: 80+ damage. If your opponent’s Active Pokemon is a Pokemon-EX, this attack does 80 more damage.
Weakness: Grass (x2)
M RAYQUAZA-EX BREAK LV.X PRIME LEGEND

What deck should I play if I want a loli girlfriend?
all i really have are lewds
how about this
Not the anon who asked but hows this?
TIME TO WELCOME PRIMAL KYOGRE BACK TO THE TOP OF THE HEAP GENTLEMEN!
Now that Charizard, Venusaur, and Blastoise are all but confirmed to be getting spirit links, which of the megas do you see people using? I have no idea about which Charizard we'll see more of. The new Charizard mega is obviosuly great attacking but the other two still one shot everything though at great expense. Energy acceleration wont be that much of a problem with the new Basic Charizard EX, and Basic EX Hounddoom helping in a capacity.
Blasoise new Mega and basic EX from Generations hasn't been revealed yet but the XY Mega was tremendously powerful and now will be actually useful with a spirit link to get it out faster.
I'd say the XY M-Venusaur will be fucking shit up if it can get its energys on it quickly and now it wont be missing a turn either. Unless an opponent has a switch or some other means to rush, in M-Venu is going to be 2-shotting everything with no rebuttle. Garuanteed prize take.
Only one that comes to mind off the top of my head. But having two megas in your deck seems a bit impractical

Now my Mew collection consists of only the DRX Mew EXs and a fire delta Mew.
Hey at least he'll be viable once more. The new Palkia with energy acceleration will help too. Manaphy healing along with rough seas. All that switching and energy transferring. Will be even harder to deal with once it gets going than it was before possibly. Suicunes walling will be missed
of course there's a charizard. this entire line is just a recreation of the emboar line they did in the bw block. it's cute because
we all wish we were that kid with real pokemon and grow old with our bros ;-;
desu just run it as a 1-of with a copy of maxie like some decks run gallade and archeops. running 2 or 4 vs 14 cards for one Pokemon makes an obvious difference on your consistency.
>the kid in the Charmander and Charmeleon cards is alone in them with nothing but his pokemon
>the last card will show the kid as an old man on a hospital bed with no kids reading a book with his Charizard
Never noticed that. Neat
>Tepig looking at the mother's tits
>Pignite looking at the sister while she's reaching for his crotch
>The sister's peace sign while rubbing up against Emboar
>Emboar looking at his master's child
I think that was a faithful Tepig, that likes them young when it got older.
Just run it as a 3-1-3 or 4-2-4.
People seriously need to stop being afraid of the Stage 2 meme. Stage 2 decks don't auto-lose to big basics, they only had a problem past format because Toad, the deck with FOUR TIMES THE WINRATE of the next best deck locked you out of Candies and Balls, which are critical for evolution decks.
The game's a shitload faster than pre-RS thanks to Shaymin showing up and Toad dying.
>So should I use the coins to get packs and then trade them?
Packs/cards obtained via tokens aren't tradable by default, so that's kind of a moot point.
>What bundles and promos are you talking about?
Like pic related (which nets you 3 Undaunted booster packs and a promo Meganium Prime for 650 tokens) or last week's bundle (which gave you 4 BREAKthrough packs, a RH Pyroar FLF line, and Pyroar sleeves).
But when a new bundle comes up pay attention to what folks say about it, the current bundle is only useful in Unlimited.
They were revealed a while ago, the three-pack blisters will have a Pyroar PHF reprint and the promo Umbreon Japan got while the one-pack blisters will have a Hydreigon reprint or a promo Pikachu.
Oh, and the set's prerelease promo will be Trevenant.
>Hydreigon and Pyroar reprint
At least this Pikachu has 10/10 art, I'll have to pick up a set for Raichu.
Do we have art of the reprints, or is it the same?
>Search your deck for up to 4 Lightning Energy cards, reveal them, and put them into your hand. Shuffle your deck afterward.
Any reason no one's talking about this, what with Magnezone being a thing?
I used to think this, but then I remembered pic related. They're virtually the same card, except M Ampharos does more damage, has more type support, a lot more energy acceleration options, better typing (Yveltal), and a significantly better energy cost. Not to mention its base form is better, since it accelerates itself and offers an out to Regice.
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Ditto_(XY_Promo_40) is the most recent.
Remember in the FRLG era there were all those interchangeable Ditto that were just various Pokémon toys with Ditto face?
You misread something. Night March is currently the most successful deck.
This is a new format, since everything since the rotation was Expanded or mixed. Until we get proper regionals, these results are what decide the format for now and hint at what you should prepare for come the bigger tournaments.
Ignoring these results is negligent.
UK fag here.
I started collecting from about early summer last year, and most of my packs have come from Argos and a few blisters from Tesco. Is there any website or shops that's legitimately good for single packs? On that note, best place to get binders/sleeves?
God I hate nightmarch fags.
>Hur-der It's not a tournament winning deck or anything why the butthurt?
Doesn't need to be a tournament winning deck to have a stupid high win rate and everybody and their mother using it. I just find it annoying and usually the person playing the deck is cancerous as well.
>live in rural bumfuck, Long Island NY
>even the biggest card shop on the island doesnt do Pokemon prereleases
Fuck you, Brothers Grimm. Fuck you AND that cunt employee with the greasy sideburns.
These are still just cities results. Just wait until we see what's happening in Regionals before we jump to conclusion; after all, Night March only has 34 1st Place wins out of 229 events, and a 15% presence that's only a half a percent ahead of the next best deck.
But then again, Breakpoint's giving it a lot of new tools. Mind Reading to help set up, Fighting Fury Belt to make Pumpkaboo sit at 100 HP, and Max Elixer to soften the deck's reliance on DCE and Dimensional Valley will just make it better overall.
One of the bigger problems with Pokemon prereleases is that whatever store gets it is determined by local area's PTO. The following is basically who runs those kind of events
Magic: Local store approved by WotC (used to be PTO only, so they had ridiculous monopoly over it and they were huge events)
Pokemon: PTO of the area
YGO: Local store approved by Konami
CFV: Local store approved by Bushiroad
>These are still just cities results. Just wait until we see what's happening in Regionals before we jump to conclusion
They're two different formats, it'll be difficult to compare them.
>League promos are now Mirror holos instead of the usual Crosshatch holos.
Jesus Christ, TPCi...
But then again, the tournament promos were switched as well so I can't say it wasn't expected.
I believe the only pack for singles conversion for ptcgo is on reddit now and is dated back to I think double crisis. I could be wrong on that but I know it's dated. Are there any other more up to date lists? I mean so much has changed with all the new sets and meta shifts. We have nothing to go by for new cards. Who makes these lists because we need a new one.
I've been getting my shit kicked in the past few days no matter what I try, whether flareon, night march, vespiquen, even manectric + Bats. It doesn't really help that I'm just getting back into the game after leaving before roaring skies dropped. Any deck suggestions?

My mons are 2x weak to psychic and 6/7 games I tried are against them.
I swear you get a lot more bullshit when doing challenges. I loathe getting challenges of the colors I play because of that. Missed flips, shit hands, bad match ups, I've seen it all. Often in the same game

>concede on second turn
Why? Why quit?
I've played games, both pokemon and magic, where people insisted I quit, and others would have quit instantly, and in the end, I always ALWAYS asspull something and win.
You don't know if you're going to lose until you lose, man. That's half the fun.
£3.90 for a promo blister, £9 for triple blister and £10 for three pack from Argos
speaking of Argos, where do they get the endless supply of reverse holo stoutland from black and white base set? There are 30 triple packs of AO each with that card[/spoiled]
Is chaos cards/magic madhouse good for unsealed packs? I seen magicmadhouse had a bundle of 4 packs for £10.45 on their eBay page before. I also got a breakthrough booster box from them and got 7 Ultra rare pulls including breaks
irish here. I have bought from ChaosCards before single & boosters and no scaling happening as best I can tell. They seem to be a big enough operation that it's not like a one-man show selling through ebay weighing your packs. Delivery was quick and prices were fine.
Best for specific singles in Europe region is cardmarket.eu (but not boosters), since it's like a conglomerate of smaller sellers.
