It’s me, Zach Lesage, and I’m here with another article to help you out. As a Players Cup Champion myself, my goal for this article is to showcase the best decks from the recent Players Cup 3 Global Finals! The event featured many powerful decks from our most recent Pokémon TCG Online set, Battle Styles, and it featured many top players.

Exploring the Sword and Shield Metagame

Exploring the Sword and Shield Metagame

What's poppin’ PoTown Store readers? Are you getting bored of Standard? Are you looking forward to the rotation? Do you hate Tag Team Pokemon like Mewtwo & Mew-GX (Unified Minds) and Pikachu & Zekrom-GX (Team Up)? Even if you don’t care about any of those things, I want to share with you a format that a few players have been trying out already, the Sword and Shield - on the format. That’s right, some players have been peeking into the future, and there is already a metagame that has formed. The goal of this article is to share a handful of decks that I’ve seen from various SwSh-on tournaments and get y’all excited. Let’s check out some of these TCG awesome decks.

“Cat Walk” – Dragapult VMAX/Persian in Standard!

“Cat Walk” – Dragapult VMAX/Persian in Standard!

Alola Trainers! With Pokemon’s 25th anniversary in the books, a Post Malone concert sliding by, and a bunch of new announcements released for the franchise, we didn’t get too many new things regarding the Pokemon TCG. Some Trainers are looking to hunker down and practice their favorite deck to optimize their chances of winning, while some others want something new and refreshing in this format and are looking for a creative twist. Well, Trainers, I’m definitely bringing you the latter today! Andrew Mahone recently did an excellent job creating this new Dragapult hybrid deck we’re going to talk about today, so let’s hop to it!

“Knockout Palooza!” – Mad Party Updated with Battle Styles

“Knockout Palooza!” – Mad Party Updated with Battle Styles

What’s going on, Trainers? The dust has settled after a few weeks of playing Pokemon online, and it seems a few decks have really situated themselves high at the top of the tier list. Namely, Victini VADP, and Rapid Strike Urshifu decks seem to be doing the best, with the odd Decidueye winning some events where people were unprepared. With ADP being the unofficial “best deck in the format,” we find old answers coming back into the format in an attempt to take it out (such as Pikarom and Eternatus). As far as I can see, there’s a lot of room for creativity in the standard format, and really any deck can win a tournament right now with the right amount of luck on your side. That’s why I wanted to talk about a deck that has undeniable strength right now, Mad Party. Gaining Level Ball, this deck is easily the most aggressive deck that standard has seen in a while and can hit for hundreds of damage on a single Prize Card attacker. The deck is fairly cheap and doesn’t take a lot of PTCGO codes for a beginner to create either! Let’s hop into why I think the tides are turning in favor of the Mad Party.

"Battle Styles - Gaming on a budget"

What’s up, PoTown readers?? Battle Styles has been out for about a week now, and I’ve had my fair share of time to test most of the new decks. While some of my other articles might feature Pokemon TCG cards that may require a handful of PTCGO code cards, this article has a bunch of cheaper decks to build. Some of the coolest decks don’t need to cost a whole bunch, like Primeape (Battle Styles), and they can compete with a lot of the best decks in the format. This article aims to share my favorite budget decks that are rocking out in the Battle Styles Pokemon metagame and let you know why they are so awesome! That being said, let’s hop into Weepinbell (Battle Styles) / Salazzle (Battle Styles).

Battle Styles - A Competitive Review by Zach Lasage

What’s up, PoTown readers? Are you all excited for the release of Battle Styles? I’m beyond hyped to play around with these concepts and share my findings with our Pokemon community. That’s where I got the idea for this article - what if I shared all of my early findings here in this article? You would gain multiple resources, including my personal list of cards I’m looking to acquire in the set (so you know which cards to pick up and trade for) and a handful of early lists to test once the set goes live on PTCGO! I’m sure I’ll flesh these decks out in the future once the format is a bit more stable, but they should be a great place to start day one. That being said, let’s hop into it.
