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.
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. These free articles can (and will) be about almost any subject: deck and tournament analysis, in-game decisions, the usual suspects.
Hey ProPokemon, Today I have for you the top eight decks for the Pokémon Latin American International Championships held in Brazil. If you're wondering what did well or just want a couple new decks to try out, then be sure to give it a watch =] Otherwise thanks again for watching and I'll see you all soon!
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!
Hey everyone, Today we'll be looking at the Top 8 decks to feature at this years US National Championships. If you're looking for new decks to play or just want a recap of what decks managed to get all the way to the Top 8, then be sure to give it a watch! Thanks again for watching, PokéCastXVII

All deck lists were provided by the official Pokemon website and can be found by following this link. Congratulations to all the players featured who were able to win their respective tournaments!
Winter Regionals have been taking place recently, so most BREAKpoint discussion has been focused around Expanded. However, now that they have concluded, I think it's a good time to start considering the impact that BREAKpoint will have on Standard. In an unfamiliar format, it can make sense to fall back on a safe deck choice like Mega Manectric.
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
In the past few weeks, Raichu/Crobat has been among the best performers in Standard City Championships. It follows a similar strategy to Night March and Vespiquen, which is to try and trade knock outs with EX or Mega Pokemon, taking two prize cards per knock out while only giving up one in return.
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.
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.
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.
