How to Build a Pokemon TCG Deck

Tips for building a competitive deck in the Pokemon Trading Card Game are discussed in this video. This is the 1st video in a new series on my channel all about deck building for the Pokemon TCG. This video is mainly an overview to deck building, how to get started if you’re new to the Pokemon TCG, and important things to know when building a deck for the very first time. Future videos in this series will discuss important cards to include in decks when it comes to healing Pokemon, drawing cards, attaching Energy, and increasing damage. I will also continue to review all of the best decks in the Standard Format, so make sure to watch for those videos if you want to see an entire deck at once!

If you have any questions related to the Pokemon TCG and deck building, please let me know!

Thanks everyone for watching, and make sure to check out all the links below.
