Here is my sons (5) deck we have been preparing for Cities. Pokemon 20 3 Growlith SS 3 Arcanine SS 4 mudkip RS 3 Marshtomp promo 3 Swampert RS 1 Latias EX D 3 Zigzagoon RS SS= Sandstorm, RS= Ruby Saphire, D= Dragons Trainers 22 4 Pokeball 2 pokenan 2 Rare Candy 4 Potion 2 Switch 1 Lady Outing 2 Energy Search 3 Copy cat 2 Fisherman Energy 18 12 water 6 fire This Deck is played by a 5 year old who is just getting ready for his first premier tourney. This is the process we went through making a deck. I think its important to let the kids choose their cards. Then build around their choices. So here is how this deck became. He likes to say ZigZagoon and likes to roll dice while plaing Thats why that card is used. Latias EX is his favorite Shiney EX card from any booster he opened. It uses water/fire so it fits in this deck and 100 for three *** ain't to bad. Mudkip requires flipping/ dice rolling "always good for attacking" Dad chose the Swampert because its easy to understand the attacks and play After some discussion he took his dads suggestion...... we matched Fire with Water. He chose Growlith because he wants a dog. Fire Veil looks good also If you like rolling dice the Pokeball is the drawing trainer for you. (also easy to understand) I tried explaing the Oracle/Nav combo...that will have to wait. So Nav alone it is He understands Rare Candy as a "Breeder". Its more than that but he will play it as he understands it. Potion for healing. He really wanted Moo Moo (Dice again) But I said NO Thanks for the input and look for my older (9) son's Mr "Kecleon goes to Cities" Deck.
