    alakazam, tentacool, mr mime stall decks

    hitmonchan based aggressive decks using grass for scyther or electric for electabuzz,

    1 metwo 58 psychic energy and 1 maintenance will beat anybody that doesn't run energy removal.

    oh and raindance dance decks were really good in that too. pokemon breeder to get a turn 2 blastoise and then use professor oaks and bills to find energy cards to just load everything up. it's why the electabuzz was actually used as a meta deck.

    I'm sure there were others, but i haven't played that in like 25 years.

    Haymakers that hit for 20-30 with a single energy.
    Bill, Prof. Oak etc. trainer cards in general are super busted and should be 4 of in everything.
    Double Colorless Energy is pretty nuts as well.

      WTF is a haymaker? Is it something related to horses or some shit?

          That doesn't include the Fossil expansion, or those GB exclusive cards

            You literally just need the 3 mons and some good trainer cards against the cpu

              Yeah but the meta is twisted by the addition of those two expansions.

                haymaker is still the best deck in fossil meta, just add more trainer staples

                Just remove Scyther. Haymakers were the top meta deck for Basis with Hitmonchan and Electabuzz.

                GB has jungle and fossil, so it has scyther and friends.

                Technically speaking the meta is some lickitung stall bullshit, but the AI isn't nearly hard enough to warrent playing that,

                Wigglytuff is also really good if you get a few of those and some double colorless.

    There really isn't one. This is all from the age where things were still kind of balanced. I wish we could get another game like this. Too bad the online we have is so broken. Almost every person plays the Lugia vstar deck where if you don't draw path to the peak on the first turn it is an instaloss. It's terrible. And even worse than that, when I do get path to the peak, the opponent just quits. I hate it. Fuck the tcg online.

    >hitmonchan based aggressive decks using grass for scyther or electric for electabuzz,
    I netdeck'd this one in the 90s because it was the only netdeck I had most of the cards for.
    I took it to the local card shop and crushed some fag strapped to an oxygen tank to win a tournament and some booster packs.
    Would recommend.

        Scyther counters Hitmonchan, who counters Electabuzz. Magmar kinda countered Scyther.

          What other expansions does GB2 have tho?

            It mostly got Rocket + a bunch of japan exclusive cards (promos) https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/gbc/581059-pokemon-card-gb2/faqs/19493.
            Even though it is pretty much only one expansion more it has around double the cards of the first game.

          IIRC speedruns use diglett and dewgong a lot, it was a popular/commonly raced game around 2016 because of the wild variance possible in each play, just watch some of those to get a feel for strategies
          is optimal but you can easily get away with cheaper alternatives, or you could grind out the entire game with a single Lickitung if you have the patience to savescum every paralysis flip

              The game saves pretty frequently during battles, not sure how frequently, but it doesn't save during the coin flip animation and the flip determined at some point when you initiate the coin flip
              So you just watch the animation and quickly reset if you don't like it, then replay the action/animation until you do like the outcome
              For Lickitung that means Paralyzing the opponent's active every time, hitting for 10 damage per turn

          Unkowingly I build a Raindance deck back in the day since I liked water Pokémon the most. And the only dude in the schoolyard who could keep up with me had some weird Venasaur deck and the most ungodly draw luck imaginable.

    Rain Dance is really good in the TCG GB game. You can win games in just a few turns.

    Nidoking. That's it. Get a couple of those and use Toxic - you literally cannot lose and the AI freaks out.

    For me, it's
    >Gastly, this busted Haunter, Gengar as main focus
    >Electabuzz as secondary focus, with a few Magnemite and Magneton just to make more use of Electric energy
    >Exeggute and Exeggutor for coverage if the other two are walled by something
    Exeggutor's massive coin flip attack is fun and comes in clutch a lot.
