Hi guys, im new to the pokegym community, I just wanted a few pointers and tips on my deck, I just started playing pokemon a couple days ago so im really new to the game. Heres the deck I plan to use at the state championship comming up in a little bit. It will be my first tournament aside from the prerealse. Once again any pointers or tips would be greatfully appreciated. (Remeber Im not that great and i dont have a lot of cards:frown Pokemon: 15 4-4 houndoom (GE) 3-3 blissy 1 sableye (CG) Trainers: 27 4 celios network 4 plus power 3 mentor 3 TGW 3 Tv reporter 3 cessation crystal 2 castaway 2 night maintnence 2 stevens advice 1 copycat Energy: 18 4 boost 4 Special dark 5 fire 3 holon ff 2 basic dark The Strategy Ok then, so the strategy to this deck is very simple, get turn one houndoor, attach a fire energy. Next turn get out a houndoom and attack for t2 80-110 or 40-70 with burn, or 20-50 (im including the pluspowers and strength charms for the dmg.) and discard a card from there hand... (i know its amazing!) The sableye tech is for good top decks, and disable for blissy match-ups and it's a very good card in the format. The Blissy's are for beatdown after your first houndoom dies, bring one up with a holon ff and an energy or 2 hopefully, and just pound them get a fire from your discard and your not fish bait for gallade any more.. (well at least not as much.) The Scans Houndour L.13 – Fire – HP50 Basic Pokemon [R] Ember: 20 damage. Flip a coin, if tails discard 1 Fire Energy attached to Houndour. [C][C] Kick: 20 damage. Weakness: Water (+10) Resistance: none Retreat: 1 Houndoom L.41 – Darkness – HP90 Stage 1 – Evolves from Houndour [D] Darkness Fang: 20 damage. Choose 1 card from your opponent’s hand without looking and discard it. [R][C] Dark Flame: 40 damage. You may discard either 1 Fire Energy or 1 Darkness Energy attached to Houndoom. If you discarded a Fire Energy, the Defending Pokemon is now Burned. If you discarded a Darkness Energy, this attack does an additional 30 damage. Weakness: Water (+20) Resistance: Psychic (-20) Retreat: 1 Once again, im new and any help would be great. I created the list yesterday and I thought it would work pretty good.
