Hello! I'm brand new, both on the forums and in highly competitive TCG playing. Here is my first deck. DECKLIST Parasect 2-2 (both SV and HGSS lines) Metapod 2-2 (HGSS) Leafeon Lv.X 2-2-1 (RR, RR and MD) Tangrowth Lv.X 3-3-1 (Arc, Arc x2,/SF x 1, and Arc respectively) Shaymin Lv.X 3-1 (Plt x2/UL x1 and Plt Landforme, respectively) Double :colorless: Energy x 2 :grass: Energy x 12 Prof. Elm's Training Method x3 Level Max x 1 Emcee's Chatter x 1 Pokemon Collector x 2 Poke Ball x 2 Switch x 2 Expert Belt x 3 PlusPower x 2 Bebe's Search x 4 Broken Time-Space x 2 Strategy TANGROWTH What this deck is built around. Both editions I use are amazing. Stormfront's Green Renewal neutralizes regular poison, and dulls Crobat G poison considerably, and Arceus edition's Swallow Up attack, with the help of Expert Belt and Tangrowth Lv X's Healing Growth Pokepower AND Shaymin Lv X's Thankfulness Pokebody will almost always do a solid 140 damage of Grass damage. SHAYMIN Another great pokemon in its own right. The Platinum Landforme edition has an attack that does 10 damage, heals, and puts the opponent to sleep ( a great gamestarter), and the Unleashed Skyform has a great Pokepower that does the same thing as Lucian. And the level X not only has a great Energy-supplying attack, it;s Thankfullness Pokebody does wonders from the Bench. LEAFEON Not really the backbone of the deck, but still manages to pull a lot off. It's Pokebody merges well with the other Pokemon in this deck, keeping it healthy. It's attacks are fairly cheap, and each one has a great effect (sleep and energy attachment). The level X also helps with energy, and then puts it to good use. Think of Jumpluff's Mass Attack, except it's your Energy instead of Pokemon in play. With the help of the rest of the deck, it can do up to 170 damage for only 2 Energy. PARASECT: More Great support. I use two Parasects for this deck: The Rising Rivals edition gets Energy onto the field super-quickly and puts the opponent into a sleep that can only be cured by two heads. The other Parasect can sleep the opponent while healing itself, and has a fairly strong regular attack as well. And If I can't get the Parasect onto the field in the first couple of turns, the Paras hold up surprisingly well. METAPOD: From the bench, it's Pokebody prevents Fire types from burning my strat to the ground. Useful in any Grass deck. TECH: LEVEL MAX: Not as useful as Bebe, but a nice filler nonetheless. EMCEE'S CHATTER: Exactly the same as Bill, except with the possibility to do better with the flip of a coin. POKEMON COLLECTOR: Always useful in a plethora of decks, this helps with setup very well. POKE BALL: Another good search card for setup. SWITCH: Retreat usually isnt a problem with all the energy i can get, but a few of these are still helpful. EXPERT BELT: A staple in so many decks for so many reasons. PLUSPOWER: A small help, but a help nonetheless. BEBE'S SEARCH: Do I even need to explain? BROKEN TIME-SPACE: Always risky, but extremely helpful for setup, especially if I'm going second. Comment please!
