This is the Pokémon Trading Card Game! Not the actual card game, but the Game Boy Color game! It's the TCG from back when it was still actually good. I've never played this before, but I've heard good things and I want to give it a shot.

This let's play is making my life longer. Like, I peek in, see that only new Smash Ultimate and Resident Evil videos are up and am like "WHAT? WHERE'S MY TCG VIDEO?? IT'S BEEN 4 DAYS AREADY!", and then I check... "oh, it's been only 2 days? Time slows down when you're... addicted..."
the venusaur strat isnt for charizard, its for exeggutor. you energy transfer all your grass energy to exeggutor and use big eggsplosion. coupled with pokemon centers and plenty of switches, you can make a fanastic energy trans deck
+Otacon464 i played the game 20 minutes ago. its grass only dude. i run a mono grass venusaur deck for this very reason and combo. it also runs 4 pokemon centers and 4 pokemon traders to make sure i get venu first then centers are free damage clears for the whole field.
It likely isn't worth it but I had a thought of using a Venasaur, Blastoise, and Charizard team. Raindance all the water you can handle onto Blastoise, have Venasaur transfer the buttload of energy to Charizard, and spam flamethrower
Not related to the video directly, but if I'm completely scrolled up the screen goes black and I can't see anything, but I hear it. If I scroll down even a little bit then it's completely fine. So basically I just miss the top row of pixels of the video, but does anyone know why that started happening?
I think it's a crying shame to skip over Seadra. Agility is a great move in this game. I've been playing through the sequel and my main deck has been a fire and water deck using Seadra and Rapidash with Agility as the primary cards.
The advantage they have is that the damage is consistent if not impressive, meanwhile a positive coin flip prevents all damage to your Pokemon. Doesn't matter if the opponent switches or is super effective or anything. Most Pokemon get left doing nothing VS a successful Agility.
Jared, Energy Search is still good in a monotype deck. in fact, it's amazing in it. You see, Energy Search lets you have a 56 card deck, since they are effectively just an energy card... so drawing one then immediately using it to get a water, is no different than drawing a water... except that now your remaining deck has one less card than it would. So, a legal 56 card deck!
The Elite Four battle is so obnoxious. I started playing this recently because of this series. I burned through and now I cant force myself to get through the end. It's mostly because of how time consuming it is. 5 long, tedious matches that have to be won in a row. No fucking thanks
I can't really see any reason to ever not run Four Energy Search, even in a mono-Water deck - it thins your deck out, pretty much letting you run a 56 card deck. (I guess Lass might be a reason not to, but I don't think you need to play around that). Of course, if you want a good Rain Dance deck, you're going to want 4 Squirtle, 4 Blastoise, 4 Pokémon Breeder, 4 Bill and 4 Professor Oak... But it should be fairly easy to make a deck that can consistently get a fully powered Blastoise by turn two and start smacking for 60 a turn if you grind boosters to get them. :)
Dude did Jared have to humiliate the Fighting guy so bad? His whole team gets soloed by a Farfetch'd and then he stalls out the battle just to beat him in a way he finds more amusing, even having his enemy peek at his hand to see he has no way out while he beats up other Pokémon he tries to switch to. Jared would make a good anime villain.
I really think you should replace Gambler with Professor Oak. Sure Gambler puts your hand back into the deck, but guaranteeing 7 cards I feel like would be more beneficial to you than RNG deciding you only need 1 card.
Farfetch'd was one of my highest level pokemon the first time I fought the Elite 4 in Blue. Because of EXP ALL and him being my fly/ cut slave. He was in my party regardless of who else was. The only higher leveled pokemon was my starter.
I honestly just appreciate that you're like, okay I love my bug deck, but im gonna try a couple of other things. Honestly while I miss the bug deck in the last couple episodes, psychics doing you pretty good against some tougher circumstances. I didnt think it mattered, but as we've gone on im appreciating that you didnt just stick with one deck the whole way. It really has kept this series live for me to see more cards.
Technically, Energy search isn't *completely* useless in a 1-type deck, as it thins the deck by basically making it 59 cards instead of 60 (so draws are more likely to be useful). However, Bill is just better in this regard, as it's a Pot of Greed.
+ProJared Plays! Pot of Greed is a Spell card that allows you to draw two cards from your deck. Drawing two cards may even allow you to draw another Pot of Greed, which is a Spell card that allows you to draw two cards.
I know the rest of the series might've been rec'd already, but back in the lab, in the room with the guy you can farm energy from, there's a machine that "saves" your decks, that way you can put apart some of your decks in case they have a card you need to make a different one without having to keep a mental track of what you put together, much less having to manually putting it back together when you need it...
20:30 While that is more energy than Jared usually has put into the other decks, I've always been told that 24 is a good number to start with, and adjust from there based on the deck. At least, that's how it is for MTG, and Pokemon is slightly more resource-intensive (since they are attached to specific Pokemon). I'm curious if he will have a better balance of energy with this deck than the others.
but Jared!!! Energy Search is actually really amazing as a Deck Thinner. Its ment to reduce the amount of cards you have in your deck at one time so that you can draw other cards much faster. Adding for example 3 energy searches is the equivalent of having 57 cards in your deck and still have it be playable. Same with Bills, its like having 2 less cards in your deck at any one time.
I've been pretty critical of Jared's lazy deck building on here, but I'm not gonna criticise him just for having fun and wanting to do something cool like throw down a Dragonite. Even if he had have lost, it would have no big deal. To be honest, since he's a streamer, losing at that point would have been fantastic for him in the long run. Imagine the waterfall of comments & likes laughing their arses off over it.
Someone should tell Jared that you can save your decks at the lab.
Also one of my first decks was a water one that was undefeated, it involved using Poliwrath, Dragonair, and Golduck among others with energy removal to constantly remove an opponents energy cards. It worked great in this game and even better IRL. They can't attack you if they have no energy.
I love the vids you made but this one is bad. The last half of deck building is ruff to watch. I will still watch more but just putting my thoughts of the vid. Other then that I love this game and your play through.
Say all you want about that psychic fight that was probably my favorite because the ai was at a advantage because it had an actual good strategy and not all about rng giving him the best he could it was clench and I enjoyed it a lot
I still remember playing this, growing up. I would make specialized decks. 'Anti-Fire Deck' so on. They were only ever a solid element. My water deck had three basics. Seel, Squirtle and a certain legendary bird. -.- It was just all around doing as MUCH damage in a single shot as possible. And as much as these 'gyms' have colorless and such....
The final four fights? Those guys have SPECIFIC decks. They WILL fall to solid element decks.
With our favorite champ in the making finally tracking down JESSICA, the FIGHTING Club is ready to rumble! With a revised PSYCHIC deck Jared does battle with MITCH, leader of the FIGHTING Club! Now all that stands between him and challenging the masters for the LEGENDARY CARDS is the Masters, the FIRE Club, and Jared's true rival, ADAM. Can Jared finally defeat his greatest foe? Will he finally stand tall against the four Masters with all eight Medals in hand? Let's find out, in the next episode!
1. Damn, Jared! Using a Farfetch'd that well against the Fighting Leader, intentionally waiting to use Dragonite, and said Leader using Peek on your hand to show the Gust of Wind. You were just mentally teabagging him.
2. Edited to add: Okay, so thanks to some people in the replies telling me, Hyper Beam in the TCG also has the Energy Removal Ability to remove one of the opponent's Energy Cards from that Pokemon, making it deceptively powerful, despite the 20 damage. I guess I was just caught off-guard when I saw Whirlpool could do more damage without taking HB's effect into consideration.
hyper beam is quite possibly best attack in game removing energy means they cant attack you and 20 dmg means even mr mime cant stop the dmg also as far as i can think poliwrath is only pokemon with whirlpool while hyperbeam is on multiple / (edit) using energy removal with hyper beam means instantly removing a unit from effective use
20 damage plus DELETE ONE ENERGY FROM THE OPPONENT.
Very important difference between that and "just 20 damage". Removing resources from your opponent is one of the most powerful things you can ever do in any card game.
Hyper beam is rather good. Its just not all about damage in the TCG. It destroys a energy off the enemy. (and notably I think there are three hyperbeams in the tcg. 80 damage and destroy a energy but costs a lot, 20 damage and destroys a energy but is a moderate price, and 0 damage but destroys a energy and only costs one energy.)
Jared you play Magic so you should know the value of deck thinning.
Using energy searches even in mono typed decks and using them extremely liberally not only allows you to run less energies in the deck but it also thins the deck out when you play them improving the value of your draws.
