Top 3 Best Lost Origin Decks

Top 3 Best Lost Origin Decks

Welcome to Lost Origin - our newest Pokemon TCG set in Standard! I’ve been grinding the trades, ripping open packs, and playtesting this format with my friends extensively, and I’m so excited to share my favourite decks with you! Most new sets will introduce one or two new archetypes, a handful of techs for pre-existing Pokemon online decks, and some cards that will leave you scratching your head. Lost Origin takes that to a whole other level - there are multiple new archetypes, so many unique cards to add to decks, and a whole new Lost Zone engine that seemingly works with everything. In this article, I’ll be sure to share an amazing list of each of the new archetypes, explain their strategy, and provide as much insight as possible. Let’s jump into it!

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.

Dialga VSTAR: The Ultimate Time Lord

Dialga VSTAR: The Ultimate Time Lord

Hello everyone! This is Elena from Gaia Storm TCG and welcome to another article here at PoTown Store. I am very happy to be here once again because today we are going to be looking at a very unique deck that has recently become a contender in the metagame with the release of Astral Radiance: The fearless Dialga V STAR. As you probably know, Palkia and Dialga are the two iconic legendaries from the Diamond and Pearl generation and they just received very cool new forms in the videogame Pokémon Legends Arceus. While we can’t deny that Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR is, by far, the most popular deck in the format, Dialga also holds a lot of potential.  Let’s check how this deck works and how it can beat your opponents in just 3 turns!

Top 5 Interesting Cards in Pokemon GO

Top 5 Interesting Cards in Pokemon GO

Embark on a familiar adventure in Pokemon TCG’s latest set, Pokemon GO, which is based on the hit mobile game Pokemon GO! This set has been designed to blend the unique Pokemon found in Pokemon GO with TCG mechanics for the first time ever! There are fan-favourite legendary Pokemon, like Mewtwo VSTAR (Pokemon GO), that will find a home in powerful decks. While there are some obviously powerful cards in this set, like Radiant Blastoise (Pokemon GO), the goal of this article is to showcase some of the unique cards found in this set. Will they ever see the light of day? Honestly, I’m not sure, but Pokemon announced that the upcoming Lost Origins set will be delayed which means that Astral Radiance will be our latest main set and Pokemon GO will be the differentiating factor heading into Worlds. Furthermore, our usual rotation of cards that happens in August / September has been pushed to early 2023 to bring us closer to Japan’s set legality. This might open the realm of needing to play unique concepts to avoid running into Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR (Astral Radiance) mirror matchups at upcoming events. Let’s check out these unique cards.

Round Menace - Blissey V!

Round Menace - Blissey V!

Hello everyone! This is Elena from Gaia Storm and it is a pleasure to be here once again writing for PoTown’s amazing blog. As you know, Astral Radiance - the latest Pokémon TCG set was released a couple of weeks ago and everyone was eager to see the impact that it would have on the metagame. 

The first Regional where Astral Radiance was legal was Melbourne and we were all shocked to see that Palkia VSTAR, the most hyped card of the set, got 8/8 placements in the top! Had that been a coincidence or was Palkia going to dominate this format without opposition? Well, I guess we got our answer after the celebration of Milwaukee’s Regional: Palkia still did great and seemed to be the deck to beat but many other decks were able to make it to the top, including Arceus VSTAR, Dialga VSTAR, Blissey V and… wait, wait, did I just write Blissey?? Blissey, that “meme” card from Chilling Reign that everyone made fun of? Yes, indeed. And it did so well that it got very close to winning the entire tournament! 

But… How did that happen? Has something changed in the metagame and now Blissey is just good or are there other reasons for this amazing run? Let’s find out together!

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.
