This video helped out a little bit. To be completely honest, I’ve only played the Pokémon video games and collected the cards. I’ve never really built a deck or battled in the TCG. I’m still kinda confused about deck building as I’m extremely a newb at the TCG, but this helped for a lot of other stuff. I’m also realizing I’m much much better at the video games compared to the TCGs lol

khajiit claws says:

i only have two energys

Leo Prime8 says:

I always wanted to play but don’t know how, this helped a lot, thanks!

Dat One Boi says:

this is soo hard to play with really strong Pokemon bc they need like 5 energies and i dont have the previous evolution

Mr.GreatWhite says:

After watching this I still don’t know how to play.

Unknown ShadowDragon says:

I also have a question. So, let’s say you attach 2 energy to your Pokémon, then you use an attack that uses those 2 energies. Do you discard those energies? Or do you keep them attached? My friends say you keep them attached, but others are saying discard the used energies. Also how exactly do you build a proper deck? Just have a max of 60 cards, up to 4 mons with the same name, and as many energies? Does the 4 rule apply to Trainer cards? Sorry lol I’m so used to the video games that the TCG is weird

Kaden Ferrill says:

NewClouds says:

Quick question: do your prize cards count as part of your deck of 60? Also, how many pokemon can you have in your deck?

Spicy Lemon says:

I don’t wanna say this cuz t’s gunna sound insulting(even though it isn’t meant to be) but this guy seems to me like the poketuber equivalent of davinator1212.

Sid Animates says:

Thanks dude this helps a lot !!!

CiaoGalassia says:

How many pokemon can you play in a turn ? How many different pokemon can you evolve in a turn?

Steven Shortridge says:

I have a question, say i have a Pokemon with an attack that will do 20x damage. Is that 20 damage and then 20 times (number) of additional damage or is it just 20 times (number)?

sorry this is really hard to explain

Feather Heart says:

I collected Pokémon card when I was super young, like five years old. I then stopped playing with them and just now I found 132 in drawers and under the bed etc. I have no idea how to use them, value etc. but I still keep them. For some reason I have some in Japanese and I can’t read them :/

Italy_ Plays says:
