Is A Golden Counter Energy going to be well sought after?
Would I be right to offer it in exchange for 5-6 Normal Rares or 1-2 big shiny GXs or Vs?
Can I get more? Or should I expect less?
>>
Let's say I'm designing two cards that are functionally identical, with one difference: Card A inflicts Burn with their attack, and Card B places 2 damage counters on the target plus some extra minor effect. Without knowing anything else about the cards, what would be a suitable extra effect, to make both cards equally strong?

Serious question from someone who collects Pokémon cards in real life not online
Do these have any value? All kidding aside, can these actually be sold or something in 20 years?
How does this work, do you have to just accept the fact that this will all disappear when the servers go down??
>>
>>45463892
I just like playing the game, experimenting and seeing a bunch of different artwork of Pokemon in a manner that's way easier to do than in real life. I don't give a shit if the game went offline tomorrow.

I copied Azul's Pikarom decklist. Aside from adding 1 Crobat V and Dedenne-GX, what would you change? I feel that it's kind of inconsistent.

How essential is the Eldegoss? Starting with it seems less than ideal and it's an easy 2-prizer to pick off.

>>45467646
You'll probably be fine with just the extra dedenne and crobat. You may want a second swell to slow down fire decks more.

The deck does well as long as you get the turn 1 boltund or turn 2 full blitz. There isn't much more consistency you can add to the deck. 2 copies of Boltund is always nice to have. I played this list in the Player's cup but I lost to blowns because I removed the deck's techs against it.

>>45467765
The deck likes to have an out to a game winning boss or sometimes an extra yell grunt.
>>
>>45467765
It's useful if I run out of supporters thanks to Prof. Research and Dedenne, or picking up a Boss' Orders in the late game. It's not ideal when I start with it, but the same can be said about Dedenne and Crobat,
The card that I feel it's not that good outside of one scenario is Electromagnetic Radar. Most of the time I'm wasting resources with it and it's only really useful when I have 2 lighting energies in my hand. But that might change when I add another Dedenne.
>>45467797
I'll try this list, thanks. Why Team Yell though?

How good is the new charizard theme deck?
>>
>>45472688
both the new theme decks are bad
>>
>>45472697
The Charizard one is good. Battle sense is amazing. Bede works incredibly well. Having the Yanmega fucks old water decks due to weakness. It's so much fun. The deck runs 2 ordinary rods and evo incense. You need to manage your Charizards well though and can possibly deck out when you're not careful. Only problem is high energy requirements for your other mons and only Bede accelerates to the bench. It's a big brain deck.

So, is Grimmsnarl V/Vmax any good? I don't play the card game but want to start getting into it, and Grimmsnarl is one of my favorite Pokemon so I thought maybe I could build a deck with him in it.

Once during tour turn if this pokemon is your active pokemon, you may shuffle this pokemon and all cards attached to it into your deck. If you do, search your deck for a pokemon (excluding Vmax pokemon) with the same name as one of your pokemon in play (excluding Vmax pokemon) and replace it with this pokemon.

(P)(L)(D): Amazing clone
Discard 2 energy from this pokemon. Then, choose an attack of any pokemon in play and use it as this attack.

It's pretty alright yeah I've played it, its not super competitive compared to the meta decks but you can still get wins and have fun. A little stronger than a Sableye or Darkbox deck probably. Definitely use Piers and Crobat, you can use Hydreigon to power up the Grimmsnarls.

Rebel Clash Obstagoon looks pretty good too, I think. I'm guessing I don't need a ton of energy cards but Trainers to recycle them from discard?

Can someone please enlighten me as to why CEC Magneton is so sought after on public trades?
It KOs itself but searches for 3 supporters. I mean that sounds very useful, but is there some big brain meta combo that youtubers have started using recently?

>>
>>45481238
That's kind of neat, but kind of dumb too, I wish themed supporters and trainer cards could interact more and have combos or whatever.
Up until now I only knew of using Magneton to intentionally go down on prizes, use attacks that do more damage depending on hand size, and possibly trying it out with Slowpoke and Psyduck GX (which discards supporters) and then using other methods to constantly stack your hand.

On another note. It seems like Snorlax Vmax is just a better Mega Rayquauza now. Is that the general consensus? Losing Shaymin seems to hurt those sky field decks a lot, anyway.
Are there any recommended Rayquaza EX, GX cards that fill a different role that would be worth trading away my MRays for?

Honestly, any thing released to “counter” adp would in turn harm a lot of decks that aren’t broken. The best solution in my opinion is to just plain ban adp as any counter card would also harm other decks. But since they don’t plan in banning it, maybe this could work?

Can I get some advice on trading?
I want to avoid giving away too much stuff. For commons I tend to trade 1-to-1 for the same pokemon. For uncommons I normally trade a reverse holo in exchange for another uncommon and 1 or 2 commons.
Getting regular non-V, non-GX rares is where I have some trouble and give away too many of my tradable rares. For low tiers V and GXs I've been using a cheap Dubwool V promo code as currency.

I really wanted Mega Alakazam and traded 6 rare reverse holos from the same set to get the full art and I'm not sure if I gave too much.
I traded Orbettle Vmax for about 20 Sword and Shield rares and I'm beating myself up for not just getting 4-5 good Vs.
I wanted Thunder Mountain and Diancie Prism Star and offered 4 full art trainers and one RR trainer and clearly I underballed it. What will it take for those two?

>>
Why is Guzma used so much in expanded rather than Boss' Orders?
>>
I'm kind of a new player and I thought I would try to build a fun deck for Expanded with some of the stuff you start out with.

* 2 Zapdos ROS 23
* 1 Feebas DRX 27
* 4 Magikarp AOR 19
* 1 Gyarados AOR 20
* 1 Gyarados AOR 21
* 1 Milotic DRX 28

* 2 Rough Seas PRC 137
* 4 Professor's Letter XY 123
* 1 Giovanni's Scheme BKT 138
* 1 Lysandre AOR 78
* 1 Revive ROS 88
* 1 Pokémon Fan Club FLF 94
* 3 Hard Charm XY 119
* 1 Teammates PRC 141
* 3 Pokémon Center Lady FLF 93
* 2 Skyla BKT 148
* 1 Professor Juniper DEX 98
* 2 Giant Cape DRX 114
* 1 Max Revive XY 120
* 2 N FCO 105
* 1 Heavy Ball NXD 88
* 1 Cape of Toughness DAA 160
* 1 Town Map BCR 136
* 2 Dive Ball PRC 125
* 2 Muscle Band XY 121
* 1 Potion SSH 177
* 1 VS Seeker PHF 109
* 2 Switch BLW 104
* 2 Energy Retrieval BLW 92

* 6 Water Energy XYEnergy 9
* 2 Lightning Energy Energy 4
* 2 Double Colorless Energy NXD 92
* 2 Splash Energy BKP 113

Basically the strategy is to set up Zapdos to do damage to benched Magikarp with capes for Gyarados to get big damage. Alternatively I use the other Gyarados to set up damage on Magikarp.
I was wondering what I could improve here without too many newer cards.
>>
>>45509661
If you're set on playing expanded pick up the keld vs ray battle arena deck code for cheap
or for standard grab a battle league deck code and the newest theme deck codes
rather than fumbling around with a jank of cards as it's really difficult to suggest anything since we have no idea of your collection contents but we can suggest cards to "work" towards
>>
>>45509586
float stone and switching removes effects should that be relevant. 4 vs seeker and 1 of each is the correct choice though
>>
>>45509954
I guess I'll try to be more specific with asking for advice. Any suggestions for cards that do damage to your own bench? There's a Thundurus in the Dragonite deck but it does basically the same as this Zapdos. And any cards that can recover trainer cards from discard? VS Seeker only recovers supporters and if there's a more general use one or even any for specifically the other categories, that's what I'm looking for as well.

>>45509586
I'd say it's likely because status conditions and "your opponents active" effects are more common in expanded. guzma with a deck that has good retreat/switch capability will find it easy to dodge that

>>45509661
If you're going for fun you're on the right track. AOR gyarados is very enjoyable, I built a version too only a few months back (with arguably far too much 2-prize draw engine)

* 2 Ducklett DAA 148
* 2 Swanna DAA 149
* 2 Crobat V DAA 182
* 1 Dedenne-GX UNB 195
* 1 Zacian V SSH 138
* 1 Jynx UNM 76
* 3 Magikarp TEU 29
* 1 Magikarp RCL 39
* 2 Gyarados AOR 21

* 4 Spikemuth DAA 170
* 4 Cape of Toughness DAA 160
* 1 Scramble Switch PLS 129
* 4 Bird Keeper DAA 159
* 2 Lucky Helmet AOR 77
* 4 Quick Ball SSH 179
* 2 Escape Rope PLS 120
* 1 Lana's Fishing Rod CEC 195
* 2 Switch SSH 183
* 2 Pal Pad SSH 172
* 4 Dive Ball PRC 125
* 2 Random Receiver DEX 99
* 2 Ordinary Rod SSH 171

* 2 Recycle Energy UNM 212
* 3 Double Colorless Energy FCO 114
* 3 Twin Energy RCL 174
* 2 Splash Energy BKP 113
* 1 Lightning Energy SWSHEnergy 4

tips
-consider running 4 twin and 4 double colourless energy, or think about other energy acceleration (eg frosmoth)
-AOR gyarados pairs well with spikemuth stadium if you build in a lot of switch
-if you go the spikemuth route, consider DAA swanna, Bird Keeper supporter + random receiver
-jynx can help you switch damage counters around which is sometimes useful to keep the damage at the right numbers
-use something to get capes/gyarados out of discard (lanas fishing rod)
-resetting hole marshadow can help you against chaotic swell (if you can fit it)
vivid, wild speculation:
-Stunfisk 56/214 miight be useful in a pinch
-Galarian runerigus might be good for dropping damage counters on the bench to finish things off
-DAA golisopod mite work too
>>
>>45510016
>Any suggestions for cards that do damage to your own bench?
-I don't think there's anything speedier than spikemuth + switch
-vivid voltage donphan does 20 for 1 fighting -that might be a better option for building a non-switch version.
-spiritomb (the self-damaging one + damage swap jynx)
-team magma secret base (20 damage to basics when played)
>And any cards that can recover trainer cards from discard?
-lana's fishing rod gets you tools and a poke
-eco arm
-dowsing machine
-mind report mewtwo for supporters
-go to the collection explorer, go trainers tab, search "pokemon tool discard" when looking at trainers
-consider why you're fishing around in the trash for trainers in a damage deck - even if it's a critical component most decks can deal with having 4 copies only
>>
>>45510239
My only concern with recovering Trainers was for the Rough Seas Stadium since I rely on it to keep Zapdos/Milotic healthy while setting up and possibly the capes needed for Magikarp. So Lana’s fishing rod sounds like it works well enough. Magma Base and Spikemuth seem like good options to forego Zapdos, too.

Anything I could add to my Coalossal Expanded list?

Tried Magcargo Smooth Over but was way less consistent to set up. Brooklet Hill is the better than Dojo as it lets you set up faster and Strong Energy covers the extra damage

Thinking Sudowoodo is pointless as Coalossal bodies Eternatus and Snorlax with weakness (unless Snorlax has Altaria tech)
>>
>>45510674
Add regirock ex’s and replace the octillery line for a 2-2 magcargo line + ditto + octillery. Drop the recycle, a basic fighting and boss/birdkeeper for this

Depends, firstly what kinda boxes? Build and battle, elite trainer, etc...

And it depends where the fuck you live. If you live near a bunch of big box stores like wal-mart/target then just check there for retail. I avoid my local games shop because they jack everything past msrp, even though they have the best selection.

>many people will concede to you in theme versus if they see you playing with the poorfag starter decks because they take pity on your wretched poorfag soul
>grind out a couple of theme format versus wins with the starter decks
>buy a deck in the shop for your 500 coins (PROTIP: get a competitive, recent deck, eg relentless flame for busted, but things like soaring storm, laser focus, galar sirfetched, mayb unseen depths). do NOT buy anything lower in the shop than storm caller

Besides the hammers and Team Flare Grunt, what are some cards that force discards? Mawile GX can discard some supporters but it's pretty inconsistent. I'm building a deck-out deck around Conkeldurr 64 because of its Top Down attack.
>>
>>45524034
Why not just play this? It literally has the same attack
>>
>>45524199
Conkeldurr also has a +20 hp for each fighting energy ability which makes it a lot more durable, especially combined with healing scarf. Maybe it's not the best, but it's pretty fun. I also don't have that Stakataka, and either way I like Conk better.
>>
>>45524606
That’s fair anon, and for force discard cards, plumeria comes to mind and for pokemon, crawdaunt from primal clash is a flare grunt when evolving. So him + net could work

oh right, this has probably been talked about in previous threads and im lazy but
what the hell is up with the ancient gen 6/7 box sets at walmart for 20$?
>>
>>45534317
Dear god, thats WAY too many Pokemon and way too little trainers. Get rid of the Impidimp, get rid of the Morgrem, get rid of the Swellow line, get rid of the Sableye, get rid of the Galarian Weezing, get rid of the Linoone, get rid of the Obstagoon, and get rid of the Scrafty line. After that, add 3 more Grimmsnarl V, add 3 Grimmsnarl VMAX when you get them, add 2 Dedenne GX, and add maybe one Crobat. After that, add maybe 3 more Professors Research, 4 Marnie, get rid of the Piers, lose an Ordinary Rod, add 4 Rare Candy, add 4 Switch, add 4 Quick Balls, add some stadiums like Black Market and Dark City, add more Energy Retrievals, and add maybe 2 more Dark Energy maximum. After that, bring the list back and I'll do what I can to help refine deckbuilding from there.

>get rid of the Linoone and Obstagoon
I'm assuming toss the Zigzagoon as well? Also what's wrong with Piers? Not as useful with fewer Pokemon in the deck?
>>
>>45534468
Piers just doesn't do enough in this deck, hell most decks in general. Piers is just a cheaper quick ball/Evo Incense that also consumes your supporter for turn, so it isn't really worth it. As for the Zigzagoon, you might wanna keep 2 in deck because of its ability, but it's not a terrible card to have in deck. with one zigzagoon, and a fully loaded Grimmsnarl VMAX, you're OHKOing ADP which is always nice. a standard line of the hydreigon you'd want in this deck might be like 3-1-3, with rare candies to shore up the rest. Honestly, hydreigon opens up a lot of opportunities in deck building, so while Grimmsnarl VMAX can be the focus of this deck, it can also be backed up by many other Dark type GX attackers, namely Zoroark Greninja, or Umbreon Darkrai. If I had to suggest a straight Grimmsnarl VMAX list though for you here, I'd say the optimal pokemon spread to run would be a 4-3 Grimmsnarl VMAX line, a 3-1-3 Hydreigon line, 2 Dedenne GX, 1 Crobat V, and then maybe some Jirachi to help with searching for Rare Candies to get Hydreigon out as soon as possible
>>
>>45534468
The Zigzagoon has a free damage ability, no reason to drop it, especially with Scoop Up Net.

reminder actually paying the waifu tax makes you a bad person

>>45534614
He clearly doesn't have many cards if his deck is a bunch of random 1-1 and 2-2 lines. Sure, the best approach is to save up 20 packs and just outright trade for darkbox but it could be helpful to provide some budget alternatives.

The only "budget" alternative I can think of is using a pack or 2 to trade for a proper 4-2-4 line of hydreigon and 4 rare candy and running 20 darkness energy with any big basics (like darkrai or snorlax cards) he has.
>>
>>45534659
b-but the waifu tax is cheaper then zard tax
>>
>>45534614
>>45534634
Thanks for the suggestions anons. I don't have Dedenne or the Jirachi I'm assuming you're talking about (only ones I have are from XY era and Shining Legends), but I'll keep that in mind. I also added a Pal Pad as well.

I'm just sifting through the stuff I already had. Never really played the TCG but want to get into it. I didn't realize packs were basically currency until after I already opened the ones I had.
>>
>>45534750
Only some packs are tradeable, and those tend to be ones from codes. Sometimes you can get tradeable packs from rewards, but not often. I'm in a similar boat as you, being somewhat new. I don't have too many cards either but maybe we can help each other out or something.
>>
>>45534815
I've seen some locks on my packs as I mass opened them, figured that that's what it was for. I actually had just never tossed any of my code cards over the years, so I had a nice little tote full of them, some from BW era even. A few months ago I redeemed them all and opened them all up. Kept putting off getting into the game until recently and thought if I learned anything playing online I might get some physical decks made and play with friends. I think I got quite a few cards actually, but obviously not the ones I need. I probably have some decent stuff of other types than Dark, if you find you need something.
>>
>>45534750
Here is a list that you could work towards. It isn't the best but all you need is the equivalent of a modified theme deck when you are starting out.

##Pokémon - 17

* 3 Snorlax RCL 141
* 1 Crobat V DAA 104
* 1 Darkrai DAA 105
* 3 Deino DAA 108
* 2 Grimmsnarl V DAA 114
* 1 Hoopa-GX TEU 96
* 1 Umbreon & Darkrai-GX PR-SM 241
* 1 Zweilous DAA 109
* 3 Hydreigon DAA 110
* 1 Grimmsnarl VMAX DAA 115

* 1 Black Market {*} TEU 134
* 1 Ordinary Rod SSH 171

What you'll need to trade for
>DAA hydeigon, you need the energy acceleration
>Grimmsnarl VMAX, it's extremely cheap
>Hoopa-GX, also extremely cheap and its first attack is great for setting up

Cards that are optional
>Snorlax. You can replace it with anything that draws 2-3 cards for 1 energy or has a call for family attack
>DAA darkrai. A nice basic attacker
>10 total draw supporters. 4 birdkeeper because snorlax puts itself to sleep if you attack with it
>>
>>45534882
Old packs aren't really worth much, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Make sure you get all the free packs from the Trainer Challenge.

As a side note is a single Town Map worth it? I like knowing what my prizes are, but I suppose it is a bit superfluous at times.
>>
What's the best deck I could make trading these?
>>
Bouffalant 110's Gold Breaker doesn't retroactively apply to GX, does it?
>>
>>45535737
Nope, but why would it retroactively apply in the first place?
>>
>>45535684
Literally anything if you trade smart
>>
>>45535684
Since you said ¨best deck¨ I'm going to say Zacian/ADP.
>>
>>45534815
>Sometimes you can get tradeable packs from rewards, but not often.
Packs from winning in events like the tournaments are always tradeable, stuff you buy from the online shop isn't.
>>
>>45536108
Versus rewards are non-tradeable though, which is what I meant.
>>
>>45536108
Daily challenges are tradable too anan
>>
Is ADPZ really that important? sounds so boring but I don't have money to just build a deck out of nowhere
>>
>>45536142
Just wait for the Battle Deck
