What is your favorite type of Pokémon card? – Adam’s Response

Banette ex Legend Maker LM 85 Pokemon CardI would have to say my favorite type of Pokémon card is psychic. There have been a ton of really cool psychic Pokémon cards released over the years. Back in the day, I thought Mr. Mime from Jungle was awesome, as well as the movie promo Mewtwo, which in my opinion was a dominating card for Haymaker decks.

I didn’t play for a few years after Team Rocket was released, but when I got back into the game I took liking to Espeon from Neo Discovery. I won a Super Battle Zone with that card (used with Light Golduck and maxed out on Double Gusts, Gold Berries, and Focus Bands).

I honestly didn’t like from Ruby and Sapphire, but when Banette e and Mew-EX from Legend Maker were released, they were just gnarly cards. I played with both of them, using Mew-EX with Manectric-EX for part of the season and Banette e with Vaporeon-EX at Nationals when I made top 16.

Last year as everyone knows, Gardevoir SW was the dominant force and I actually enjoyed playing that deck. Right now Gengar SF is a pretty nifty psychic Pokémon as well.

I just think psychic Pokémon have always been good and that they have had a range cool abilities, you can’t pinpoint one attribute that has made them good.

    I always disliked playing a real popular psychic deck because I would loathe mirror matches (x2 weakness to pyshic). I still say Lightning are the best because they usually have 0 or 1 for retreat and fast attacks :)

    Psychic is neat, there’s definitely a lot of interesting cards for that type, especially techs, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, etc. Not to mention Mewtwo, Gengar, Gardy, etc.

    Psychic is the best type, no contest, but not my favorite.

    Find me a season where Psychic WASN’T a major archetype.
    In all other types, they have had dead seasons… but never Psychic.

    Hahaha, I definately agree with Rokman, psychic has stuck it’s nasty head into the metagame time and time again and I never looked forward to those mirror-matches with them, it was always a matter of who went first and can get the first attack on each other, that stayed one prize card in the lead, GROSS!!!

    Nonetheless, Psychic’s still my fav!

    Like you, I like psychic/Electric, but after playing more decks, I would have to say…..Fighting.
    Fighting types have been awesome from Machamp/LV.X in SF to Relicanth in SV to (I forgot what set it is) Rhyperior, all the way to the famous Donphan Prime from HGSS. Altogether, they make a good blend of donk, snipe, vicious mid/late-game power, and almost anything else you'd want to be in a strong deck.

    Hello I just wanted to let you know, I really like the written content on your web site. But I’m utilising Chromium on a machine running version 9.04 of Ubuntu thus look and feel aren’t rather enjoyable. Not a powerful deal, I can still essentially browse the articles and search for information, but just wanted to let you know regarding that. The navigation bar is sort of tough to use with the config I’m operating. Keep up the superb job!
