Hi Pokemon Gurus! I've had many requests to start Guru Points up again. So, to make it managable, I will only give Guru Points to those who participate in these Guru Point Challenge threads (and the stickied thread-of-the-week). I'll be tossing up these brainteasing challenges to: 1. Keep you from getting bored/ Give us all something to do. 2. Help us share some nifty little tricks-of-the-trade that may lead to some powerful and creative ideas. Today's Deck is: TYPHLOSION PRIME This pokemon looks SO big and bad that, I think, kids around the world would thank us if we could put our heads together and come up with ideas that work. SO... today's challenge is to contribute a REAL (viable) examples of how Typhlosion Prime could be successful in a deck that has synergy, consistency, and winning potential. Please read what has already been posted in the thread before you provide your own input. Good answers that lack detail = 1 Guru points Good answers that are detailed = 2 Guru points Brilliant Answer that may actually work! = 4 Guru Points! This excersize gets us in the habit of offering suggestions without destroying a player's effort to TRY his/her idea. RULE = YOU HAVE TO BE SPECIFIC and detailed to get full points (it helps fuel new ideas and keeps the thread alive) TIP - If you give an abbreviated effort, you won't earn as many points. ( i.e. You can't just say "Play it like Jumpluff with a 1-0-1 Flygon tech" and earn the full 2 Guru Points ) Answers that appear to be off-topic (silly or spam) are subject to deletion. YOU LOSE POINTS if your respose is merely that the card is 1) not good 2) cannot work (TIP: Even if this is true, it's not creative and you'd be better off not posting a response at all.) A list of point leaders will be stickied to the top of the Strategy Forum. There are some very strong players visiting our forum, here's your opportunity to show off your knowledge of the game. Secret Tip = LINK cards that you mention in your examples to images in PokeGym's Research Tower. This will earn you 1 additional bonus point for your post!
