Hey everyone! It’s a pleasure to be writing another article. Since I’m writing less often, it’s quite refreshing to write after a while. My summer has been filled with lots of traveling (both Pokémon and family related). Now, I’m ready to begin testing the Worlds format.
Personally, I’m a fan of the pre-Worlds rotation after putting more thought into it. The originally stale meta without Guzma, Ultra Ball, Nest Ball, etc. appeared bleak at first, but has given rise to different engines and lesser played cards. Decks with better engines are inherently strong, but that doesn’t prevent other decks from succeeding. Today I’ll be looking at one of the decks I’ve invested time into: Naganadel-GX Control.
In many ways, this deck is a Zoroark-GX/Naganadel-GX adapted for rotation. Since Zoroark-GX has left the format, the deck now includes the new Naganadel-GX as its engine. Its Ultra Conversion Ability is similar to Zoroark-GX’s Trade; instead of discard any card and draw 2 cards, it’s discard an Ultra Beast and draw 3 cards. Naganadel-GX UNM requires the deck to be built differently than Zoroark-GX because it requires Ultra Beasts as fuel.
