Ok I realize now that most of the reason I have a hard time with even a good deck is because I don't know how to use it. Sure I have the main objective and stuff, but I still fling cards around all willy nilly. If I presented my deck, could someone help to make my moves and draws more effective? :Edit: Ok I'm just going to present it anyway: Pokemon Swampert GE x2 Swampertex Marshtomp GE x2 Mudkip GE/CG x3 Wailord GE x2 Wailmer GE x2 Mantine MT x2 Mantyke MT x2 Remoraid MT x2 Octillery MT x2 Lapras GE x3 Energy Double Rainbow Energy x2 Scramble Energy x2 Water x12 Multi Energy x2 Trainers Glacia's Stadium Bebe's Search x4 Rare Candy x4 Roseanne's Research x2 Buffer Piece x2 Felicity's Drawing x4 Holon Mentor x2 Ok at the begining of the game I can be put into a corner and have to place energies on things I don't want to, so what would be the best opening move to basically bring out my swampert? Also should saving energies in the hand be something to do if you only have 1 pokemon on the field and you want to save them for something that might be coming?
