    Hi, i havent played since the fossil set and im looking to start up again, the store near me has the 3 diamond and pearl theme decks, the 3 great encounter theme decks, and the 2 mysterious treasure theme decks, it also has the starter pack thing with 2 30 card decks. I was wondering if anyone knew which of these i should get? and had a list of what cards are in each of them.. thanks alot!

    Well, it depends on what you want to make. I'd recomend buying the Infernape or Empoleon starter decks, or the Darkrai one, because all three have usable cards (Porygon-Z, Infernape, Empoleon, and Darkrai). I'd then recomend getting boosters to help make better decks. The Starter Pack can be good for beginners, but only Lucario is actually good in them. My advice.

    The list of cards is probally somewhere on the Gym, I'll try to find it now. And as for boosters, well, again, it depends on what you want to make. Secret Wonders boosters are probally the best, because they have some of the best cards in the game. However, Great Encounters can be a nice place to start, it has Pachirisu and Claydol, 2 of the most commonly used cards in the game.

    Well, I can't find them, but in Empoleon I know that Empoleon is the only good card, and in Darkrai, Darkrai and Porygon-Z are the only good cards. Empoleon is the best of the 3, but you need 3 and a Lv.X or 4 to make it work well. Porygon-Z is the 2nd best, but you need 3 or 4 for it to work well, plus a lot of different types of Energy. Darkrai is 3rd, but you need 2 Darkrai and 2 Darkrai Lv.X for it to work well.

    Oh, oops, I was mixing up the Porygon-Z with Beedrill :(

    So, now Dialga is actually a good Starter deck too, because it has Porygon-Z. And, it has Lunasol.
