  1. What is it called? Findeck or thin deck? (I don't even have a single energy card)

  2. I a, new to using Pokemon cards.What does an evolution chain help with and does it make a big difference when playing against others?

  3. I just got two Vmax packs today my first in my first collection. Came with coins.

  4. 9:22 do you know where stadium cards are picked? Or do we just replace an support or item card

  5. Thank you so much! I'm new to Pokémon TCG and your videos have helped me a great deal! You're just the best! I bought Battle Academy box to guide me through the game, but I don't have anyone IRL to play with so I practice on my own and play online.

  6. You were very informative and to the point. I appreciate the video my friend.

  7. Super helpful, I totally get it now. Can't wait to build my deck and teach my kids!

  8. Not sure if it has been mentioned yet. I was able to go to my card store and pick up a energy bundle for 5 bucks.

  9. The trainer card “School Girl” is usually better than hop. Because you start with 6 prize cards, you will be able to draw 4 cards instead of 3(with hop).

  10. Thanks for this video. I appreciate your cadence in speaking as my young sons can understand everything that you are describing. As a middle aged dad, it was great for me too!

  11. Oh but what should I do when I don't have enough energy and trainer cards
    I don't have enough cards

    Well thank you for the guide 😁

  12. Thanks dude 😎. Like your bed head, you must have slept on your right side

  13. This is so helpful. Your explanation is crystal clear and easy to understand. I haven't play Pokemon TCG for more than a decade, and basically I still remember the system so I can hop into the game with starter or theme deck immediately but kinda forgot how to build a deck properly. I just back in the online game and also back to buy / collect the cards. Thank you for this.

  14. Can Gold Cards go on a deck, (because i have a charizardV hp=522 with 4 fire energy to deal 510k damage

  15. Just buy one of the decks in stores

  16. You made this way more SIMPLE then my brain has been trying to make out playing Pokémon all together ! So helpful and just the right tone and pace for beginners ! Thank you…subscribed !!

  17. Watched your vid several times to help us set up our first starter decks. Great tips thanks!!!

  18. This is very helpful! My son and I have started to play pokemon together and this kind of info is a big help as we are starting to build our own decks after initially playing with precons. Thanks!

  19. You have no idea how much this has helped. 🤘

  20. Thanks. I made a deck with my 5year oldson, we ended up around where you suggested in terms of numbers of the different cards.

    But, I found it more intuitive to let him pick a pokemon (mew) in the beginning and then I let that be the type we used. We then filled out the pokemons of the deck. When we found items and supporters, but some of the trainer cards we would not have picked if he had different pokemon.
    Lastly we found energy 18 energy and filled out the deck.

    Again, thanks for a good video.

  21. Imo, this is the best simple and straightforward basics of how2play pokemon tcg. Really big thanks since my folks will be dipping our toes on tabletop paper matches.

    Maybe u can also do vids for beginner/intermediate/advance mechanics to help us progress! 😇

  22. Energy? You mean over 20 cards of filler in the GBC early game?

  23. Great video. Me and my son are just learning. How do you insert V cards?

  24. Instead of using the same basic pokemon duplicated with the same type evolutions is it possible to have different pokemon evolutions with the same type? Duplicating pokemon cards will just get my bored so quick. I was thinking about editing my Theme Decks to make them more customized with the same type but different pokemons. If you get what I mean.

  25. Thank you for the video! I was looking and couldn’t find a video for a multi energy deck. Did you make a tutorial for that?

  26. FYI. Regardless of the image, if the card has the same name and function then the rule to have 4 max still applies. The only exception to this rule is basic energy cards, feel free to have more than 4 energy cards.

  27. I changed the rules a bit, with the cards, I had 3 Meltans but only one Melmetal, is that ok?😅😅😅

  28. Awesome video! I never knew how to play or build decks as a kid, and now, as a 30 year old im picking up the hobby again, and im loving it. Built my first deck today and played with a buddy, and we had a blast. Keep up the good work 🙂

  29. Can you un-bench a benched pokemon back into your hand?

  30. I've been collecting cards since I was 6 years old, but I've never really played. I have a ton of very rare and expensive cards, but I've only just started to learn how to battle. This really helped.

  31. Hey man, really appreciate you making this video.
    About to watch this with my kids and build our first decks together
