I have been continuing my “training” to get back into the swing of things by studying all the Pokémon cards that are out right now. I came across Groudon LA and realized that it could have potential with Flygon RR. After showing Jeremy my original Flygon list, seen here, he told me that there was a variant of Flygon that uses Weavile SW to attach extra energies to Flygon with its “Shadow Charge” attack.
Groudon’s “Drought” attack is fairly similar, in that it allows you to get extra energy attachments for your turn. While Groudon’s attack requires you to have energy in your hand in order for it to be effective, Groudon is a basic Pokémon, which is an advantage over Weavile, who is a stage 1 Pokémon. Groudon does carry a hefty 3 retreat cost, however, when used with Flygon it will have free retreat thanks to Flygon’s “Rainbow Float” Pokémon Body.
We will post a list for this Pokémon deck idea once we get a chance to test it out. If you want to try it out, let us know how the testing goes by clicking to comment below.
