    Pokemon Trading Card Game Thread

    Alright I did it @Lightningvolt Thought I'd open a thread for Pokemon TCG. Please discuss anything regarding Pokemon Trading Card Game. Competitive metagame, your favorite decks, or just the Pokemon artwork in general. Personally I haven't played all that long but been spectating it regularly enough for a while. Since we have lots of League Cups around where I live, it kinda make me to give a try. My main deck I'm currently playing is Buzzwole/Garbodor/Shrine of Punishment and all of its variants. Feel free to add me in Pokemon TCG Online, name is the same as in here.

    OU Viability Rankings

    Keep in mind, the C rank for Heracross was put there before Flame Orb. Now it's definitely much better but still needless to say faces lots of competition for team slot. So many Pokemon do similar things than Heracross does and that is breaking walls. I'd say because Heracross is such a threat it deserves B rank at minimum but nothing much higher because you don't exactly need Heracross to break walls. Kinda has the Haxorus vibe to it. Best at wallbreaking but inferior to Salamence/Hydreigon/Dnite in overall usefulness.

    [PSL X] THE TENTH EDITION - HYPE THREAD

    People being so mean in PSL, what's new. Can we all just puke rainbows for once
  13. The thing is A.I. can never actually teach competitive Pokemon. Pokemon as a game it is just too complex for an A.I. to play it properly. There are so many factors what comes to not only when deciding what moves to use in battle but also when you're building your team. Even the best players can not definitively agree what is the best spread, the best moveset for every Pokemon because there are so many factors going on with it - like the current (and potentially future) metagame. Therefor even if you made "competitive Pokemon" to face you by A.I. they're not necessarily actually competitive in the right way. Furthermore, the A.I. simply does not know what to do with those Pokemon either. Should it switch, should it attack, should it set up, should it Haze? Then Eggplant's point about IVs is spot on that maximizing IVs is essentially just hyper-optimizing Pokemon. Sure, who wouldn't want to improve their chances by every smallest marigin there is - but telling to new players is that IVs and optimized EVs is what makes you a competitive player is simply wrong. There's way too much more behind it what comes to competitive Pokemon. Now, I obviously wouldn't oppose if there was some in-game guide that is easy to find for newer players to get a grab on these aspects like IVs, EVs and nature. In fact I'd find it super useful. But as I said, it's a long way translating that knowledge into "competitive play".
