I am completely new to the Pokemon TCG and I need to buy my first lot of cards. I have no one to play with except my partner (Kieran). He is not interested in buying cards or collecting but he said that he'd play with me. Also, money is a bit of an issue so I can't buy him his own set.
Are we better off buy the Black and White Pokemon Trainer Kit or buying one theme deck and splitting it in half when I want to play?
