Original 150 Electric Deck


#1

I apologize in advance if this is in a wrong area or anything. Relatively new to posting in forums as a whole (should also probably mention that I’m relatively new to pokemon as well, still learning the ins and outs). My LGS has a pokemon night where kids (and others) get to come and battle gym leaders wherein if they win they get a pack of cards and a badge. As I enjoy all card games and I enjoy hanging out with kids, I chose to try and be the Electric type Gym Leader. I have to use electric pokemon, normal types may be allowed. So I got with one of the shop owners who helped me throw together a quick deck. I’ve since customized it to my own tastes and have been continuing to improve it, however I’m not quite sure what direction to take the deck. It’s primary focus as of right now is to ramp up and attempt to one shot my opponents pokemon however it just doesnt seem to cut it. Firstly the older players have some rules (Primarily for the gym leader thing and nostalgia purposes)

  • original 150 only
  • no EX
  • no GX

Now I have an eevee deck I’m crafting with EX & GX so it’s not excluded from play entirely. I should also note any forms of the original 150 are also allowed such as Alolan Golem (Which I’ve been heavily considering). This puts the “Gym leaders” in a little bit of a predicament as the kids can (and will) use EX and GX cards because they find them fun. I don’t intend to play very meanly or competitively towards the kids but I don’t want to roll over to them either. Ideally I would like to provide them a challenge with which enough practice (and hopefully picking up on game tactics) they can win and earn their prize. Researching cards has not been nearly as easy as MTG, however and thus I am asking for Help. I’d love to stick with Raichu and Magneton (My old favorites) however if that’s not possible I understand and am willing to adapt. So with all of that out of the way here is my current decklist:
