I have a new deck that I'd like to try out, if anyone would like to have a match with me.

I do not use Pokemon TCG online. However I use Bebe search and Playtcg me to play online as it's free and doesn't require you to use online codes !
I can add you on Skype if you're looking for a game.

Im very disapointed with TGC Online because I have 2 great decks at home that I have been working hard on, and the best thing I can do with my online deck is... well stick with my cold-fire deck because the booster packs have all failed to turn up much of anything online. I had purchased a kit of 6 decks from walmart for $29 that came in a plastic box, but it does not have any codes in it for TGC Online, so that means I have almost no energy in my online decks either.

So I rip through the "tournament challenge" against the computer - winning must games in 5-7 minutes, I doubt I would be a match for any real decks out there... *sigh*

Your online collection is set up do you don't need to collect any basic energy cards. When you go to build a deck, look for the energy cards that have the infinity symbol indicating how many of that energy you have.

You can trade your booster codes for virtual cards with other people, giving them so many codes to get a specific card.

As it stands right now, though, I'm only available evenings and weekends for matches.

Oh? I have unlimited energy? I just assumed I had just the ones that came with my cold fire deck... I'll have to try again to build something then.

It might take a little while to find them... mostly because the client's response time can be a bit slow.

Yep, was able to build a deck. Its not all that great - still have the problem of most of my online cards suck compared my real ones.

But this deck at least functions....

So played 2 games with my deck against the "expert" level of "practice" and slaughtered them. Was hoping they would be more realistic...

Same here
I don't even have that compeditive of a deck, according to the critiques I've recieved here, and I take out the computer with no problem, even when I'm at a type disadvantage.


playing against other real people is really hit and miss. More often than not I take people out easily, but occasionally I'll play someone that I just can't compete with.

It's really because many top level players use Redshark or playtcg.me when they want to play online. Match setup is definitely far faster in those two anyway. Once you understand how they work, that is.

With playtcg, at least, you build a deck on bebesearch.com and playtcg will sync up and read it in.



I do enjoy playing the online TCG, though
I like having the second collection of cards and being able to trade such.

and for a usability perspective - aside from the glitches and lag from the pokemon online, I like the interface a million times better than I've enjoyed playtcg.
After disabling all of the animations and sounds, it does run significantly smoother.

I do come across good opponents every now and again, and I probably play my friends from work more than I play random people.

It's also a lot of fun to quickly build and test decks just for fun.
I built a heatmor deck that was really quick and easy to make, not to mention modify - when I felt that the bebesearch interface really held me up when I didn't know the names of the things I was searching for.
with pokemon online, I'm able to just see and click :D
and the filtering abilities it has are luf ;3;
