Pokémon Black and White Theme Decks!
Do you have the Theme Decks yet?
The Pokémon Black and White Theme Decks were released earlier this month, featuring the stage 2 evolution of the three starters. In each deck you get 60 cards that are battle-ready so you can test out the new Black and White cards and figure out what kind of deck you want to build!
The Green Tornado deck features both grass and psychic-type Pokémon. The headliner for this set is Snivy’s final evolution: Serperior. Serperior’s main attack Leaf Storm requires two grass energy cards, deals 60 damage, and heal 20 damage from each of your grass Pokémon! That’s pretty powerful for just two energy cards. The psychic family, Venipede, Whirlipede, and Scolipede are also quite powerful. With four energy cards attached to it, Scolipede can deal 80 damage and poison the opponent.
The Red Frenzy deck features both fire and normal-type Pokémon. The headliner for this set is Tepig’s final evolution: Emboar. Since this deck comes with one Timburr, it comes with fighting energy cards. Emboar’s Heat Crash cost 1 fire energy and 2 other energy cards. This attack deals 50 damage. If you think this isn’t enough, 2 fire and 2 of any energy cards can activate Flare Blitz, dealing 150 damage to the opponent! You will need to discard all the fire energy attached to Emboar, but dealing 150 damage is probably worth it.
The Blue Assault deck features both water and electric-type Pokémon. The headliner for this set is Oshawott’s final evolution: Samurott. Samurott’s Pike attack cost two of any energy cards and does 30 damage to both the defending Pokémon and a bench Pokémon of your choice. You can also use 3 energy cards to deal 80 damage with no side effects to your Samurott. The supporting electric Pokémon, Joltik and Galvantula are also great because Galvantula’s attack damages the opponent but heals itself.
Trainers, Supporters, and Items
In these decks you will get some important Trainer, Supporter, and Item cards. Pokémon Communication is a Trainer card that you want to hold onto. It allows you to search for one Pokémon in your deck in exchange for one of the Pokémon cards in your hand. Professor Juniper is also great if you have a hand that you can’t use. This card allows you to discard your hand and draw 7 new cards. Switch, Revive, and Energy Retrievals are also quite useful for building your own deck in the future!
