"Agility" -- Zapdos // NXD-on


I have been playing with a Zapdos deck for quite a while now and have had quite a fun time doing it. I plan on playing this deck for next seasons city’s. Here’s my list.

Pokemon 12
3 Zapdos EX
1 Thundurus EX
4 Deoxys EX
2 Virizion EX
2 Victini

Trainers 36

Supporters 13

4 Professor Juniper
3 N
2 Colress
2 Skyla
2 Lysandre

Items 21

3 Team Plasma Balls
1 Ultra Ball
3 Colress Machine
4 Hypnotoxic Laser
3 Muscle Band
2 Switch
2 Startling Megaphone
1 Professor’s Letter
1 Super Rod
1 Dowsing Machine

Stadiums 2

2 Virbank City Gym

Energy 12
4 Rainbow (only play because prism will rotate soon)
4 Plasma
4 Lightning

Strategy: Start second if possible and try to hit a t1 agility with Zapdos. If you are playing correctly you get this about half the time. Play Virizion only if your opponent if using some sort of special condition. When playing you rarely use Thundurus EX unless you are in a energy crisis or you are playing against Pyroar. When playing against Pyroar carefully time your Lysandre and Lasers. You will then want to use Thundurus EX to Thundurus Noise hopefully keeping your opponents Pyroar from ever attacking.

Have any suggestions or changes? Please tell me below in the comments.


Keep in mind that Super Rod and Skyla are more than likely going to rotate, but other than that it looks like a solid list for Zapdos EX, if you must use it.
