The first few weeks of Battle Styles have been very inventive, with players bringing their finest deck creations (some good and some bad) to the table. We’ve seen some of the most diverse top cuts in a while, with decks ranging from Corviknight VMAX to Urshifu Rapid Strike/Dragapult VMAX. It seems like there is a little bit more experimentation going on since there are so many new tools to build with, so in other words, the format is a deck builder’s paradise! Those who are opting to play consistent decks have been rewarded as of late, as it seems streamlined VMAX Pokemon are taking over standard format right now, namely, Victini VMAX. Winning the first online tournament of Battle Styles, Victini VMAX showed its strength by being able to gun down V Pokemon and OHKO them with ease before they can evolve into their much higher HP counterparts. Victini VMAX is also very simple to play, and it takes as much energy as Eternatus takes to attack, so the decks are very similar in they play out. Efficiency and consistency are two of the keywords we’ll be discussing a lot today, so let’s get into one of Standard's most underrated decks in the format, Victini VMAX!
