Hey everyone! We’re coming up on the final events of the 2016-2017 season so it’s a very exciting time in Pokémon. And even better — we just got a brand new set! Many players, myself included, are excited to see the format shake up in the coming weeks.
Although I have voiced my concerns with how the game might change, other players have helped assuage my fears. It seems that the format will simply slow down as we build our decks in ways to beat oppressive cards like Garbodor and Sylveon. Tapu Lele-GX will also introduce some much needed consistency to the game. I would certainly welcome a slower and more consistent format, but only time will tell if that’s what actually happens.
So far, most of the major new players such as Garbodor, Sylveon, Greninja, and Alolan Ninetales have been discussed by myself and other writers. Instead, I’ll mostly be going over existing archetypes and how you can update them to see if they’re still viable in the PRC-GRI format.
Let’s jump right in!

SixPrizes has been a phenomenal resource for me from the very beginning. Shortly after I started, I became a subscriber, and being able to partake in all the knowledge a lot of the best veteran players had to share helped me learn and grow as a player. I still read to this day so I can keep up with other players’ thoughts and ideas to help me stay on top of my game!
