Just wanted to start a thread discussing the new pre-made decks for sale.
I have to say, I'm not entirely pleased with them, but I'm not unhappy. I love all of the new cards and I love seeing all the new Pokémon in card format - I think it's awesome because me and my boyfriend are massive card freaks (he spent £64 on the BW Preview Tins, the World of Illusions box and a bunch of booster packs). Anyways... needless to say, we bought the new decks as soon as possible and it was wonderful.
My only main problems so far with them have been:
- what's the point of having Pansear and Simisear in one deck, Panpour and Simipour in one deck, but only Pansage in the third deck? Where the hell is my Simisage?!
- the new damage counters, while I'm happy that the 50 counter has made a wonderful return, they are so freaking small!! It was near impossible to use them because they were just so damn finicky!!
- the new playmats are so condensed that you practically have to stack your Prize Cards and there are only room for FOUR Pokémon on the Bench!! The diagram at the back is so screwed up and disproportioned it is unbelievable - it says there is space for five when there clearly is not!!
Anways, so, yeah, those are my peeves about the new decks. Beyond that, I'm loving the cards themselves, I'm loving all the artwork (so far) and I cannot wait for the main set to come <3
