Since the format has 2 rounds of Sealed play, i was curious as to what to expect from R&S boosters. So my 2 oldest, my wife, & i opened 6 packs of R&S and created decks with what we got. We've done this twice so far and the first time, i was only able to get the decks that were created but the second time i was able to track just about everything (though i think someone might have an energy card that belongs to someone else). Speaking of energy cards, it really really really stinks to pull one (R&S packs have Basic energy cards randomly inserted as commons). It stinks because it takes the place of a common that you could've used. And it really sucks when it's a Reverse Holo - that's just a wasted card! RHs really are a blessing because you can get 2 rares in the same pack! The good thing about doing this is you get to make proxies out of the cards you don't want to damage. Number after the card name is the card # (no levels exist on these cards thanks to the dot coding) and i'm not about to write down the codes on the bottom. Boy i really miss the flavor text. Here's my middle created (and youngest one playing): Torchic 73 X 4 Combusken 28 (RH) Blaziken 15 Electrike 30, 52, 53 (RH) Manectric 9 Mudkip 59 Marshtomp 40 Swampert 13, 23 Switch X 3 Energy Switch Energy Restore Lady Outing Rainbow Energy X 2 (1 RH) R X 6 L X 5 W X 6 Cards not in his deck: Hitmonchanex Makuhita 57 X 2 58 (RH) Phanpy Donphan Nuel Treecko 75, 76 Grovyle 32 Cascoon Koffing Ralts 66 X 3, 68 Kirlia 34 Wailmer Goldeen Chansey ex Slakoth 45 (RH) Skitty 44, 71 Poochyena 63 X 2 (1 RH) Aron 49 X 3 Lairon 36, 37 Aggron 1 He originally had the Aron/Lairon/Aggron line in but took them out when i made the comment "You can only add Basic energy cards." I didn't know he had 2 Rainbow Energies or i might've told him to keep those in. He really didn't have very good water Pokémon to add it. Lady Outing is amazing in a deck with 3 colors. My oldest ran: Makuhita 56 (colorless attacks) Treecko 75, 76 Grovyle 31 Sceptile 11 Electrike 52, 53 Manectric 9 (RH) Electabuzz ex Mudkip 60 Marshtomp 41 Carvanha 51 Skitty 70 (Plus Energy) ER2 Energy Switch Switch Potion Oran Berry Poké Ball Lady Outing Energy Search G X 11 L X 6 W X 2 Cards not in deck: Nosepass Makuhita 58 X 2 Combusken 28 Blaziken 15 Sceptile 20 Cascoon 26 (RH) Silcoon 43 X 2 (1 RH) Wurmple Koffing Electrike 30, 52 Ralts 67 X 2, 68 Gardevoir 7 Carvanha RH Wailmer Lapras ex Zigzagoon Poochyena 63, 64, 65 Mightyena 42 Aron 50 X 2 Energy Search RH Energy Switch RH Darkness Energy P, W energy He didn't add in the other Sceptile because he didn't like 2/1/2 and having a 4/1 line of Electrike/Manectric didn't make it. He did think about the Poochyena/Mightyena/Darkness energy but decided not to use them. Skitty's Plus Energy & Electabuzz ex is one deadly combo. Lady Outing again amazing with the 3 colors (even though only 2 Water energies!). My wife build: Phanpy X 2 Donphan Makuhita 58 Hariyama 8, 33 Electrike 53 X 2 Manectric 39 Electabuzz ex Slakoth 45 Vigoroth 47 Energy Switch Professor Birch Lum Berry (RH) ER2 (RH) Switch X 2 Poké Ball Oran Berry F X 10 L X 10 Cards not used in her deck: Numel Torchic 73 X 2 Blaziken 3 Treecko 75 (RH), 76 Koffing Breloom Silcoon Ralts 66 X 2 Mudkip 59 X 2 Marshtomp 40 Goldeen Wailord 14 X 2 (1 RH) Pelipper Carvanha Sharpedo Skitty 70 X 2, 71 (RH) Delcatty 5 Linoone Taillow Poochyena 64, 65 Aron 49, 50 Lady Outing Metal Energy F, G (RH) When i saw this deck, i was like "Wow what a tight deck." She and my oldest played a few games while my middle and i created our decks. The last game she played, she quit after flipping 6 tails in a row.... Finally, i created: Nosepass Makuhita 56 (Colorless attacks) Treecko 75, 76 X 2 Groyvle 32 Koffing Electrike 52 X 2 (1 RH) Manectric 39 Ralts 67 Kirlia 34 Gardevoir 7 Mewtwo ex Energy Restore Professor Birch (RULES!) Energy Search Lum Berry Oran Berry (RH) Potion Pokémon Reversal Poké Nav Rainbow Energy G X 10 P X 7 Cards i didn't put in: Makuhita 57 X 2 (1 RH), 58 X 2 Combusken 27 Blaziken 18 (RH) Magmar ex Silcoon Beautifly Mudkip 60 X 3 Wailmer Seaking Zigzagoon Skitty 44 (RH), 70 (RH), 71 Swellow Poochyena 63 X 2, 64 X 2 Sneasel ex Aron 49 X 2, 50 X 2 G X 2, L Got Mewtwo ex and just had to go with Psychic. Unfortunately i really didn't get anything else but a 1/1/1 line. Professor Birch rules. Both times we've done this i've gotten one and when i was able to play it, i was able to use it for 6 cards! So some lines you know you will see - especially those with 3 and 4 different cards! If i get the chance, i'll post the decks from our first go around.
