Hey 6P, I had the idea to make a Machamp FFI deck with Strong Energy and Hard Charm, but I’m not welll-versed in Fighting type cards. I was thinking maybe Regirock XY49, but i’m not sure. Anyone got ideas? I’d like for it to be Fighting only, maybe Colorless as well.

Mega Lucario is a quick power up with decent damage that does not require you to go mega.
Hawlucha is good vs EX’s
Medicham with the right mix of strong energy / band / stadium can 1 shot most EX’s
Dugtrio is kinda meh but does decent damage for a single fighting energy

I would consider putting a deck list together to get this topic started or Adam will probably eat it for being too vague.

Are there really no shuffle/draw Pokemon that attack for [C]?

@tototavros - Yanmega PHF.

Would something like M Manectric / Psychic attackers go here?

Tropius from one of the Plasma Sets, I’m not sure which one tho

This is XY on, although I admit I failed to address that too.

Oh I didn’t realize it was XY on but yeah I just thought of it so yeah…

That shuffle/draws for [G], not [C].

Again, [G], not [C].

I guess it would…although isn’t there a MManectric-EX thread? It wouldn’t make sense for there to be one for MManectric-EX/Hoopa-EX, MMan/Landorus-EX, MMan/Genesect-EX, MMan/Trubbish/Garbodor, AND MMan/Bats.

Oh u didnt know that nevermind

Please, once I had a hand of about 30 cards, and I won because the other guy decked out.

As long as the opponent doesn’t play Red Card and/or Ace Trainer (or Judge once it’s released), this deck can be really strong. And even if the opponent does play the aforementioned cards, I’ve had little to no difficulty getting my hand back.


I’ve been working on a fairy deck for a while now but now that my league is starting back up, I need something a bit better. I was thinking about running Wigglytuff XY89/Ariados/Dragalge as a lock deck. I was thinking that I would have to play Slurpuff XY to not poison myself but if a 2-2 Aromatisse and 4 Fairy Garden would be enough, that would be nice. Now that I’ve said what I want, here is what I have currently:

Pokemon: 19
4 Xerneas XY
2-2 Wigglytuff(hocus pinkus)
2-2 Aromatisse XY
1 Regirock promo
1 Kangaskhan PLB
1 Lugia EX ANO
1 Malamar EX PHF
3 Carbink FLF

T/S/I: 31
4 Sycamore
4 Shauna
2 Pokemon fan club
2 Lysandre
2 Steven
1 Ace Trainer

4 Evosoda
3 Ultra Ball
2 Lv ball
1 Energy Retrieval
2 Energy Recycler

4 Fairy Garden

10 Fairy

I also just pulled my 3rd Lugia EX, so if that would be better, I could go that route, although I know there is a Pyroar deck that I will play against quite often.
I don’t really have the money to buy whatever right now, trying to work with what I own. I have 3 VS Seeker, 1 Shaymin EX, and 1 Max potion to start with.

I apologize for any mistakes as it’s very late when I’m typing this :wink:

What is the purpose of Wigglytuff? Wouldn’t Klefki be better? Why Kangaskhan PLB? If you REALLY need a “Call for Family” attack, might it be better to go for Emolga LTR? Even still, you should be fine w/ 2 Fan Club, 4 Ultra Ball and 2 Level Ball, as you want to Geomancy T1. Also Evosoda, 2 Energy Recycler, and 1 Energy Retrieval aren’t really necessary…you’ll draw into enough Pokemon.

Wigglytuff’s Hocus Pinkus attack makes the opponent’s active Pokemon not able to attack and Ariados + Dragalge makes sure they can’t retreat into a Pokemon that can attack. As far as Kangaskhan and Emolga go, they’re both cycled, I put it in my original list by accident so it was essentially a free spot.
