Below Zero - Kyurem VMAX

Below Zero - Kyurem VMAX

Alola trainers! Welcome back to the PoTown Store Blog! The 2023 season is about to hit full stride, even though we already had some events happen in the US, Spain and Brasil, we are finally going to see the full extent of the impact of the new Lost Origin set at tournaments. We have already seen Pokemon Online decks shift completely towards using the new cards, as they really do bring a lot to deck building and the metagame.

One of those impactful cards is Kyurem VMAX! Much to my dismay, VMAX’s are still being released and Kyurem VMAX is very very powerful. Its Max Frost attack starts at 120 damage and deals 50 more for every Water Energy you choose to discard, without limit! So even though the card shares similar traits to Ice Rider Calyrex VMAX, Kyurem VMAX is an upgrade in every way.

Dracozolt VMAX

Dracozolt VMAX

Alola trainers! Welcome back to the PoTown Store Blog! We are less than a month away from the Pokemon TCG World Championships, and I could not be more excited! I’ve been hard at work balancing between recording videos and playtesting for Worlds, trying to figure out the best deck for me to play at the tournament.
Whilst balancing this, I’ve been enjoying playing some whacky Pokemon TCG/Online decks such as the one I’m writing about today, Dracozolt VMAX! This is a long-forgotten VMAX, as most are outside MewIce Rider CalyrexDuraludonRapid Strike Urshifu and Flying Pikachu. I’m happy VMAX Pokemon are slowly becoming a thing of the past, and I hope that becomes even more true when we have the 2023 Standard format rotation.

Blasting the Meta with Blissey V!

Blasting the Meta with Blissey V!

Alola trainers! Welcome back to the PoTown Blog! Ever since the old Pokemon Gold and Silver, Blissey has been one of my favourite Pokemon, so I’m very happy it is actually quite competitive. It recently got second place at the Milwaukee Regional Championships, and since it is a relatively cheap deck to build, you can expect to see it all over the Pokemon TCG Online and Pokemon TCG Live ladder.

A Perfect Storm - Palkia VSTAR

A Perfect Storm - Palkia VSTAR

Alola trainers! Welcome back to the PoTown Blog! Astral Radiance is a fantastic set and I can’t quite believe how much the game has changed with the introduction of VSTARS. Of course, Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR is the main attraction of this set given how powerful it is due to its attack and its VSTAR Ability: Star Portal letting you power up yourself fully or any other Water Pokemon you’re using such as Radiant Greninja.

Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR decks should become the Pokemon deck to beat whether you’re playing on the Pokemon TCG Online or at live tournaments, so let’s take a look at one of its standard builds. Now, do note that this card is very flexible and this is just one of many possible builds for it.

Mew VMAX is Still on Top!

Mew VMAX is Still on Top!

What’s poppin’ Po Town readers? It’s ya boy Zach and I’m back with another article to help you learn more about the Pokemon TCG. We finally are getting the global release of Brilliant Stars so you’re probably wondering what new deck I’m testing!?! Is it Charizard VSTAR [Brilliant Stars]? How about Arceus VSTAR [Brilliant Stars]? Maybe Torterra [Brilliant Stars]? Actually, I’m loving Mew VMAX [Fusion Strike]! I know a lot of people might not be a fan of this deck since it dominated the Sword and Shield to Fusion Strike format, but that's a good thing right? If a deck has actively been the best deck in format for three months, it’s likely going to continue forward in our Brilliant Stars format. It doesn’t gain much, but it does gain the stability of Ultra Ball [Brilliant Stars], the strength of Choice Belt [Brilliant Stars], and Double Turbo Energy [Brilliant Stars] sounds great too! With all of these little additions making the previous best deck in a format even better, this deck has to be one of the best decks in the Brilliant Stars format! If you’re missing any cards for Mew VMAX, consider picking up some codes from right here at Po Town! Anyways, let’s jump into the strategy!

Mad Party Making a Comeback!

Mad Party Making a Comeback!

Alola Trainers! Welcome back to the PoTown Blog! The new Brilliant Stars set is just around the corner and it's time to check out another deck that will be a contender in the metagame: Mad Party!

Mad Party had its time in the spotlight during last season, as it had access to Triple Acceleration Energy and could trade well against Tag Team Pokemon as it could sometimes OHKO them. Since rotation took place in August though, and both of those cards got rotated out, Mad Party has been stuck in the fringe zone where it's an obvious combo with potential but just not good enough to compete. The lack of access to more than 4 usable Energy outside of Twin Energy, along with the bench threatening Pokemon such as Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAXJolteon VMAX, and Dragapult VMAX, made this Pokemon deck disappear completely from the Pokemon TCG Online ladder.

Countering Mew VMAX

Alola Trainers! I’m back here at the PoTown Blog with an article for those of you who are tired of Mew VMAX, either because it is very expensive and difficult to obtain, or if you just feel like it's too powerful of a Pokemon deck. It seems like you either love or hate Mew VMAX at the moment, and if you’re the latter, then this deck will be for you.

Improving the Single Strike Urshifu LBD

Improving the Single Strike Urshifu LBD

Hello everyone! This is Elena from Gaia Storm TCG and welcomes to another article here in the blog of PoTown Store. A while ago we analyzed one of the most amazing products to start in the game, the Rapid Strike Urshifu League Battle Deck. Fortunately for us, Pokémon players, there is an equally competitive version centered around the Single Strike archetype. So, as you might have guessed, this time we are going to be reviewing the Single Strike Urshifu Battle League Deck content as well as seeing how to actually improve it to make a tournament-ready strategy with very few changes. All you need to do is to acquire the code here for your online account and you are ready to go. Let’s get into it!

Duraludon VMAX is Actually Good Now!

Duraludon VMAX is Actually Good Now!

What’s poppin Po Town readers? It’s ya boy Zach and I’m here to share my newest findings from our Fusion Strike Pokemon TCG metagame! The deck we’re gonna look over together is Duraludon VMAX (Evolving Skies), the Skyscraper Pokemon! I often make jokes about this Pokemon being part Dragon and part hotel, but it is 100% a valid choice nowadays! This deck focuses on using it’s Skyscraper Ability to prevent damage done by your opponent’s Pokemon that have Special Energy attached. Looking at the other top decks in the format, Jolteon VMAX (Evolving Skies), Mew VMAX (Fusion Strike), and Single Strike Urshifu VMAX (Battle Styles) all play Special Energy in their deck. Think about it for a second… Rapid Strike Energy (Battle Styles), Capture Energy (Rebel Clash), Fusion Energy (Fusion Strike), Single Strike Energy (Battle Styles), and Speed Lighting Energy (Rebel Clash) are all heavily featured in the top decks right now! So if you want an interesting choice that can handle the metagame, Duraludon VMAX can seemingly handle it all. If you need any of the cards to build this deck, be sure to pick up some PTCGO codes from PoTown store to get quick access to codes. To start things off, let’s look at the list that really sparked things for this deck!
