I sometimes think to myself about the current state of the game. Sometimes that leads into things such as this.
Has anyone built Lugia?
I really like the deck and think that it has a lot of potential. Perhaps not right now, but in the future. When Deoxys ex comes in the next set, it will compliment Lugia ex transforming the deck from mediocre to insane. Imagine this situation. Turn one or two Lugia ex active, four Deoxys ex on the bench with one bench spot to do whatever you like with. That is a base 160 damage with a Lugia. Throw in a few PlusPowers and that’s three prizes on a ex. If that is not the epitome of perfect, I am not sure we will ever get there. So tell me what you all think. Is Super Lugia too cool to be good or is it just broken?
Are ex’s too good?
It may be just me, but I think ex’s are just too good. It has reached a level where you play ex based decks or you go home. Maybe this is what the R&D team in Japan wants, but I dislike it. There might be something wrong when playing evolutions as attackers causes you to be at a severe disadvantage. Evolutions have taken a backseat to Basic Pokémon within the past year and as a result, sped the game pace up from chess to Vin Diesel.
I have noticed a lot of complaints about the new code policy. Personally it makes sense to me for them to do it like this. The old way made it so someone could sit back on 20000 codes and never have to buy cards from Pokémon ever again. This way, if you want Plasma Storm cards, you have to get Plasma Storm codes. This ensures people actually buy packs and also makes it much easier for them to gauge how many players are buying packs. This is a good thing because they keep saying that casuals (basically only go to league or non players) are main pack consumers. However if they notice a huge chunk of their pack sales are being translated into codes, then it might show that competitive players are also buying packs.
Let me hear what you guys think about these topics.
