Hey everyone! I’m Jimmy, and this is my first article ever for SixPrizes! I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous — writing for Underground has been a dream of mine for several years now, and I’m really excited to finally be a part of the team. I’ve always felt like my thoughts come out much more clear in writing, and I hope that you can see how I think about Pokémon from my deck lists as well as my commentary. Without further ado, let’s dive right into the article!
A Hot Take on Volcanion
2017 marks my 10th year playing competitive Pokémon, and it’s been a crazy rollercoaster ride that I wouldn’t trade for anything. It’s nice to reminisce on past seasons playing Pokémon, but the competitive TCG player must keep one thing in mind above all: the only thing that matters is the next tournament. You could break this down further to mean the next match, next game, or even the next play!
Today I present to you what I believe to be the best deck in the format right now, Volcanion. I believe it to be the best deck for three reasons; it is consistent, it is aggressive, and it has a very focused gameplan that it is able to accomplish many times over.
