“Aqua Storm” - Lost Zone Kyogre Washes Standard!

“Aqua Storm” - Lost Zone Kyogre Washes Standard!

Good morning Pokemon trainers! It’s been a beautiful season so far, with lots of creative plays and many new faces joining the scene. We’ve been experiencing quite the format with the release of Silver Tempest: Lugia was expected to run over the format with immense amounts of aggression, but instead we’ve been seeing other answers rise to the top. Pokemon like Vikavolt V have been seeing lots of play as well as the ever-so-popular Mew VMAX deck. Consistency has been of the utmost importance, as well as versatility - which deck rises to the occasion to meet both? Well, none other than Lost Zone Kyogre! Having lots of options to attack with in your deck is important, and this deck has a great collection of Pokemon to swing with. It also has a consistency engine to back it all up, so without further ado, let’s talk about Lost Zone Kyogre today!

Top 5 Crown Zenith Cards

Top 5 Crown Zenith Cards

What’s poppin’ PTCGO Store readers? Have you started looking at all of the fantastic cards from Pokemon TCG’s latest set, Crown Zenith? I’ve been preparing for the 2023 Oceania International Championships in Melbourne, Australia and I’m here to share my early findings. At the time of me writing this article the set has basically been fully released, we have limited official English images, but I have a bunch of Japanese translations from trustworthy sites. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it is early so don’t necessarily come after me if some of these card names slightly change when translated into English or if there is an amazing card that I happened to miss out on. While this set does contain a bunch of reprints, there are quite a few awesome new cards to play around with as we round out the Sword and Shield era with one last set! If you’re trying to pick up any Crown Zenith codes to build some new decks, be sure to use code zlesage5 right here at ptcgostore.com to save 5% off your order.

“Summoning Star” – Lugia VSTAR!

“Summoning Star” – Lugia VSTAR!

Good morning Pokemon trainers! A new dawn is upon us with the release of the newest Pokemon TCG expansion: Silver Tempest. This set is brand new and has the following product description:

“Argent Adventure & Dazzling Discovery! An ominous rumble echoes in the distance, and Lugia VSTAR emerges from the ocean’s depths to answer its call! The uncharted territory lies waiting to be explored alongside Alolan Vulpix VSTAR, while Serperior, Unown, and Mawile join the expedition as Pokémon VSTAR, and a legendary battle awaits as Regieleki VMAX and Regidrago VSTAR awaken from slumber. Discover powerful partnerships in the Trainer Gallery, and set a course for adventure with the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield-Silver Tempest expansion!”

This product description does nothing short of selling Lugia VSTAR as the top dog of this format – they mentioned it first for a reason! This card is definitely going to be the best deck in format going forward, and we’ll go over all of the reasons why throughout this article. It’s going to be one tough cookie to beat, so we’ll chat about some of the ways that people may counter this card as well. Without further ado, let’s swoop into Lugia VSTAR!

Arceus and Duraludon Gets Even Better!

Arceus and Duraludon Gets Even Better!

What’s poppin’ PTCGO Store readers? Our newest Pokemon TCG Online set, Silver Tempest, has been released, and the metagame has certainly been shaken up. There are new decks, like Lugia VSTAR [Silver Tempest], that are winning online events, and some older decks, like Mew VMAX [Fusion Strike], have recently gotten a lot stronger! You might be asking, “why is Zach talking about decks that aren’t Duraludon VMAX?” Well, let me jump into that. Lugia VSTAR is all about Special Energy, Mew VMAX is all about Special Energy, and Duraludon VMAX is all about blocking damage from Pokemon with Special Energy attached to them with its Skyscraper Ability! While those decks might have some answers to Skyscraper, most aren’t properly equipped to deal with it! And that's why I am showcasing Arceus VSTAR / Duraludon VMAX in this article today! Stay tuned for the strategy, my list, and more! If you need any cards to build this tanky Pokemon TCG deck, be sure to use code zlesage5 to save 5% at ptcgostore.com! With super fast email delivery and a large selection of  PTCGO codes, PTCGO Store has you covered for all of your Pokemon TCG Online and PTCG Live needs. Let’s jump into the strategy!

Mew is Back on Top!

Mew is Back on Top!

What’s poppin’ PTCGO Store readers? Have you been enjoying Silver Tempest? I have been having a bunch of fun with our new format, and I have a hidden gem of a deck to share with you today - Mew VMAXMew VMAX has been around since Fusion Strike and most recently getting printed as a ready-to-play League Battle Deck, but it has gained a notable tech in Silver Tempest. That card is Forest Seal Stone (Silver Tempest), and it packs a punch! It allows you to search your deck for any single card you want and gives this deck an opportunity to use a VSTAR Power. While it might still be bugged on PTCGO, you CAN use Star Alchemy under Path to the Peak (Chilling Reign) to search for an out to Path to the Peak. Yeah, you can literally use that Ability since Forest Seal Stone isn’t a “Pokemon”, and grab a Lost City (Lost Origin) to start using your Abilities again. Beyond being able to wiggle out of Path to the Peak, you can use it to search for the missing card necessary to pull off a huge turn-one combo with Meloetta (Fusion Strike). Do you need the Fusion Strike EnergyElesa’s Sparkle, or something else? Use your Forest Seal Stone to get that missing card! Even though Lugia VSTAR (Silver Tempest) is being hyped up, Mew VMAX has found itself back in the driver's seat of the metagame - it is honestly fantastic! In this article, I will explain the main strategy of Mew VMAX, share my decklist, and other important information. If you are missing any cards for this deck or any other deck, be sure to pick up some Pokemon TCG codes right from ptcgostore.com using code zlesage5 to save 5%.

Silver Tempest Preview “Silver Surfer”

Silver Tempest Preview “Silver Surfer”

Good morning Pokemon Trainers! In light of this year's almost ending, we are also seeing another ending come to fruition: the end of the SSH-SHF format. We are now introducing the newest expansion: Silver Tempest, into the mix, and boy, is it ever a shakeup. We see the release of the standard’s newest boon, Lugia VSTAR, which will begin to dominate the moment it is released. This baron of a Pokemon has whopping unique features that we’re going to go over a little later in the article, but not many Pokemon can stand up to its strength. We also see some unique Pokemon come into play, like Regidrago VSTAR as well as Regieleki VMAX - both offering unique buffs to their own respective types. Lastly, we’ll be featuring a bit of a meme deck in Sunflora, but don’t be fooled: this single Prize Card Pokemon can pack a big punch very easily and stifle even the strongest of archetypes. You’ll also see many new Trainer cards seeing played in a lot of these Pokemon online decks, one of my personal favourites being Serena. Let’s hop into today’s article!

Powerful Pokemon Deck - Kyurem / Palkia

Powerful Pokemon Deck - Kyurem / Palkia

What’s poppin’ PTCGO Store readers? It’s your boy Zach Lesage here, and I have yet another blog to share with you all in the Lost Origin format. Since the release of Astral Radiance, we all know that Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR (Astral Radiance) has been one of the absolute best Pokemon TCG decks, but Lost Origin brought on a new friend in the form of Kyurem VMAX (Lost Origin) to shake up the metagame. Kyurem adds a certain amount of raw power to the deck that allows it to OHKO almost any Pokemon with its sizable Max Frost attack. Pairing that with its Glaciated World Ability that works with either Rotom Phone (Champions Path) or Oranguru (Sword and Shield) allows you to tackle almost any deck. This deck has largely been one of the most played and most successful Pokemon online decks so far in our current Standard Pokemon format, and I want to share some of the best lists with you! If you are missing any of the cards, use code zlesage5 right here at the PTCGO store to save 5% on Pokemon TCG Online codes. They offer instant delivery right to your email and have a vast selection of PTCGO codes for everyone. Let’s get it!

The Regis are Super Powerful!

The Regis are Super Powerful!

Wanna learn more about one of the lesser talked best Pokemon Online decks in our Standard Lost Origin format? Well, your boy Zach Lesage has your back! I recently took Regigigas (Astral Radiance) for a spin at Peoria Regionals, and I placed 23rd out of nearly 1100 participants! I could’ve easily played the same Origin Forme Palkia VSTAR (Astral Radiance) / Inteleon (Sword and Shield) list as my teammate Calvin Connor, but I had a different view on the metagame (and still do). With powerful Comfey (Lost Origin) / Radiant Charizard (Pokemon GO) decks crushing the Late Night series events, I knew that Regis would have a solid matchup against it. They essentially would have to take an early KO on any Regi with Cramorant (Lost Origin) with some help from either Articuno (Pokemon Go) or Galarian Zigzagoon (Sword and Shield). Giratina VSTAR (Lost Origin) is a similar matchup, but you can always use Regieleki (Evolving Skies) to snipe a Giratina V (Lost Origin) on the Bench and sweep up with Regidrago (Evolving Skies) for the remaining 240 damage. Kyurem VMAX (Lost Origin) decks have largely been a relatively easy matchup, but some do play Empoleon V (Battle Styles) which can stop any Regi deck from functioning. Most lists either play Boss’s Orders (Rebel Clash), Canceling Cologne (Astral Radiance), and/or Path to the Peak (Chilling Reign) to get around it. I could spend another paragraph or so sharing the good, but I’m sure you get my point; Regis is one of the best decks in the format. In this blog, I’m going to share my two most current lists for this deck, some strategies, and more! If you are missing any of the cards for Regis, use code zlesage5 right here at the Ptcgo store to save 5on Pokemon TCG Online codes.
