I can't even deal with this Mega Venusaur EX like I played the computer on hard and it just got annihilated.

And it's not like that's all I got, either, I just don't even have to use the other Pokémon unless someone is gonna use a Sigilyph or something that nullifies attacks by EX Pokémon. Everyone else is just a meat shield while I set up Venusaur (he more than makes up for what gets lost), or a plan B waiting on the bench in case something goes wrong.

Like what is the point of the game and all of the other Pokémon if this card exists?? I almost want this card to be defeated. And the deck that surrounds it, too.

But let's be honest, it feels great to have this after repeatedly getting owned (within the first two turns, even) because Wayne had Yveltal and all I had were like Feebas and Eevee. God that pissed me off.

This game just seems really unfair but I love it. smilies/icon_xd.gif The best matches are when both people are down to one prize card, though.

The Pokemon TCG is awful imo 99% of the time. I don't mind games that have a high amount of luck involved, but card games are notoriously bad for that kind of s**t and the Pokemon TCG is the best example of it. I can't tell you how many times I've recreated decks or even used prebuilt decks and just had nothing but energies or nothing but Pokemon I couldn't use and just got ******** destroyed. If I wanted to do something completely based on luck, I'd play Russian Roulette. At least if my luck was bad, it would be over.

Not to mention the weaknesses are a card-by-card basis so the strategy of trying to use someone's weakness makes little-to-no sense and they might as well not even be there because if you have a type that's good against your opponent's they're ********. My favorite thing about making real Pokemon teams is giving them a lot of variety. I generally have six different types to combat whatever I may come up against but in the TCG you're lucky if you can get two, a god if you can balance three.

Got to use your Trainer Cards when you have a bad draw. I had trainer card save my a** when I had no energy cards. Also its not that hard to run 3 types if you use colorless Pokemon Cards since they take all energies.

I think the last deck I build a year ago had water, electric and colorless. Technically 5 diffrent types since water share the same energy with ice but they have different weakness to water Pokemon cards same for normal and flying pokemon.

Yeah exactly, Trainer cards are key. If I know I'm gonna need specific Pokémon, then I'll use the Pokéball Trainer cards to get them, or if I'm worried I'll need energy, then I'll have Professor cards and ones that let you search your deck/discard pile for energies. You have to keep changing the deck up until you find one that gives you enough control.

Listen, I've played the Pokemon TCG enough to know what I like and don't like about it. And I can NEVER find a good balance that will last me for one full game. I know all about ********' Trainer cards and I know about Pokemon that let you search through your deck for s**t but I still just don't pull much pleasure from that game.

A friend and I got a dual deck starter set once and three out of three games I just got complete s**t draws and could do nothing while he just completely ate my entire team up every time and I just had to watch it. That game is notorious for being able to put you in a shitty spot that you can't get out of and just forcing you to wait out the beating because it's all about what you draw. I've built decks over and over again, balancing them, referencing them with friends' decks and so on and it all just comes down to what card is on the top of the pile. I could fill my deck with trainer cards and get nothing but, or nothing but trainer cards that give me more of what I have.

The types are also annoying because there aren't enough of them! Fighting is the same as rock and ground? Really? Because one is the other's weakness. How do they even do electric Pokemon's weaknesses? Are they weak to fighting? Isn't that retarded?

It just doesn't translate well (IMO) to a trading card game. I love the cards and I loved the Game Boy game (mostly because losing wasn't as embarrassing and it was a lot quicker/easier to get new cards and rebalance a deck) but the actual card game is a nightmare. Cards are expensive to buy and you don't even know what you're going to get in a deck. You can buy on eBay but then that's that much MORE money. Maybe the website isn't so bad but I just have always had a problem with the card game which is ironic because I have about a billion ******** cards.

I must just be a bad deck builder, though.

I can only barely handle one type and colorless because I just get s**t draws. I don't know how people do anything more. I must need to watch more.
