Say hi to Pokemon’s silent ninja.

The idea behind this deck is to insure all the situations that water Pokemon may face. With the new release of the water energy, a player doesn’t really need to worry about losing a certain type of Pokemon since well he or she will get them back in their hands. Greninja will serve as a quick way to kill with his new break and Blastoise is there to ensure that we have a tank/bursting Pokemon to assist us.
Lapras, Articuno and Suicune will serve as both supports and engines to ensure that we build our bench properly. At the same time Regice and Manaphy are there to make sure were either locking our opponents down or were free moving between active and benched Pokemon.
Let’s not forget also Palkia whose there to make sure energies are being attached to our benched Pokemon to speed up the process. It can work both as an aggressive and control deck. In other terms, even mid-range players will find fun in this deck.
