Hi! I was recently playing Pokemon TCG gameboy game, and I saw a GOOD DECK (Dont laugh) besides from the fact that it ran way too many pokemon. So I changed it a bit, and here it is:
4 Growlithe
3 Arcanine
4 Magmar
3 Tauros
4 Bill
4 Professor Oak
4 Plus Power
4 Computer Search
3 Gust of Wind
3 Nightly Garbage Run
2 No Removal Gym
18 Fire Energy
4 Double Colorless Energy
Decks in my area: Slow combo decks, "Slow" Sponge/Haymaker.
I think this deck might be better if I put in a few RSA, but I dont know where to put them in.
Can you please fix my deck?? I have a tournament next week, and I want to use this deck for it.


Note: This fix isn't crossed with any other mechanic... I did this one all on my own.

Well, you've got a pretty good start here. Trouble will be that there are decks that are much faster than you, but if you can stay alive you should win. Also, I guess the speed metagame is slower in your area-- lucky you. Let's see what we can do.

1) Pokemon are pretty solid. I personally like Scyther most of the time, but there's no real place to put him. Tauros is the deck theme, and Magmar is just too good to pass up. I think rather you should add in a 4th Tauros. We will make space later.

2) Your trainers are excellent, and would probably be okay even if I did nothing. But there are a few tweaks that can be made. First of all, NGR is just too good not to run 4 of. Take out a Computer Search. Now put in a couple of Item Finders, planning to take out energy later on. That's about it. You could add RSA in lieu of PlusPower or something else, but I really don't think it's neccessary. Doesn't sound like your environment is incredibly competitive, though, so maybe this is something you could have fun experimenting with.

3) Energy... you can afford to go down to 14-15 fire energy here. I mean, think about it. You have 4 Oak, 4 Bill, and 4 NGR. Your primary Pokemon are Arcanine, Magmar and Tauros. You just honestly do not need that much energy.

Here's what my version of your deck would look like:


15 Pokemon:

4 Growlithe
3 Arcanine
4 Magmar
4 Tauros

27 Trainers:

4 Oak
4 Bill
3 Computer Search
4 PlusPower
3 Item Finder
2 No Removal Gym

18 Energy:

14 Fire Energy


And that, as they say, is that!
