“A Good Top Deck” – Gallade/Octillery Analysis

Hey guys, today I’m going to go over the Gallade/Octillery deck that surprised friend and foe at Mexico City Regionals. So far the Guardians Rising format has shown again and again that intricate combos are back and here to stay in the Pokémon TCG, and this is just another example. It’s been a while since Gallade and Octillery were in the spotlight, so let’s briefly recap how these cards work again.

“What Does the Fox Say?” – Zoroark/Drampa-GX Analysis

Hey guys! As our regular readers might have noticed, the front page of ProPokemon has been mostly premium articles as of late. However, starting today, we’re going to be trying to release two free items every week in addition to the premium content we were already doing.

Two Interesting Decks from US Nationals!

There were a lot of interesting decks at US Nationals outside of the Top 8, and today I want to look at two of those. Now that Karen has almost certainly been confirmed to not be in Steam Siege, it's likely that the metagame for Worlds will be similar to that from US Nationals, and so it's a good idea to explore some new decks and ideas that people used!

Is Sableye/Garbodor the Real Deal With Puzzle of Time?

Sableye/Garbodor had a respectable run through City Championships, eventually finishing as the sixth most successful deck, but it seems to have received a huge boost from Breakpoint in the form of Puzzle of Time. While we won't see the new and improved Sableye/Garbodor in action until the final week of Winter Regionals, due to Breakpoint not being legal before then

“It’s Lonely At The Top” – How Yveltal/Zoroark Can Reclaim It’s Number One Spot

Up until recently, Yveltal/Zoroark was the most dominant deck throughout Standard City Championships, in terms of Top Cut placements and the total number of Championship Points collected. However, a disappointing week six where it was only the tenth most successful deck, without a single win to it's name, saw Night March overtake it as the best deck from Cities so far.

“A New Way To Chaos Wheel” – Fairy Giratina In Standard!

Everyone knows how powerful Giratina EX can be. It's ability to block damage from Mega Pokemon, and lock the opponent out of playing Special Energy, Tools, and Stadiums, can slow opposing decks to a halt. However, recently, people are starting to find success pairing it with other Pokemon as opposed to it's traditional partner in crime - Seismitoad EX.

“Marching to the Top!” – Night March in Standard

With most Regionals so far being Expanded, the Standard format hasn't really had much time in the spotlight, but over the next few months, we can expect it to receive a lot more attention. It seems like most City Championships will be Standard, as well as a lot of Regionals outside of North America over the coming month.
