Uhhh, which reviews of mine did you read that said to play with 28 Pokemon?!?!?

Here's a hint, flip the number of Pokemon cards with the number of Trainer cards and you'll be in a heckuva lot better shape!

And here's another hint, mono-lightning decks have a tendency to get their butts kicked versus fighting... ever heard of Hitmonchan?  Splashing colorless pokemon with weakness to Fighting also doesn't make the situation any better.  =(

Keep on reading our reviews... hopefully you'll eventually get it right!

Hope this helps... have fun!
