The Charizard theme deck from Vivid Voltage continues to be one of the most popular decks in the Pokemon Trading Card Game; particularly within Pokemon TCG Online. What makes it so appealing is that in theme battles, Charizard and company make for one of the most ferocious decks. It’s also fairly cheap to buy in-game or IRL. Furthermore, with some adjustments, you can make this deck work in Standard format!
“LeonZard” as this deck concept is known as in the community has lost a few key cards due to the 2022 rotation, such as Welder and Giant Hearth. Even so, here’s my approach to making this deck work for the 2022 Standard season!
Introduced in 2021, Venusaur V and Blastoise V ushered in a new era of theme decks. Most notably, these decks come with a bit of extra firepower thanks to the inclusion of V versions each deck’s featured Pokemon.
For the sake of forward compatibility (and the nifty V Battle card), V Battle decks are generally the way to go these days. Let’s take a look at what the Venusaur V deck has to offer!
Over the past few months, I have amassed over 1,000 physical cards and thousands of digital cards. Most of them are completely useless in competitive play. I discovered very quickly that if I wanted to compete in Standard or Expanded formats, I was going to need cards that allowed me to compete with the bar set by the community at large.
Some of these cards I was able to randomly pull in booster packs. Most of these I purchased through promo codes off of Potown Store. Nevertheless, when I’m ready to battle, these are the cards I’m taking with me!
V-Union Pokemon are the latest innovation in the Pokemon Trading Card Game. This new mechanic involves the use of four cards that form one large image of a Pokemon. The effect of seeing all four cards is quite striking on the table. But are they just an expensive gimmick? Or are these V-Union cards going to be a must-have in every deck?
As someone who owns all four currently available and has played with most of them, I weigh in on the matter in hopes of helping you make an informed purchase.
The champ is here!

If you’ve never set foot on the battlefield or you’re a veteran trainer looking to give this deck a fire spin, here’s what to expect!
If you’re looking to supercharge your Pokemon TCG Online experience with more cards or better cards, there are online retailers out there that sell codes to unlock booster packs, cards, and accessories among other digital goods. I regularly buy codes from Potown Store and some of my purchases have greatly increased my enjoyment of the game.
That being said, not all of the items available for purchase are going to provide the bang-for-your-buck that you might be looking for. While everyone’s wants and needs are different, I’m going to make recommendations for new players just starting out, as well as those who are looking to get foundational pieces for great custom decks that are otherwise difficult to pull from booster packs.
Without further ado, here’s my list of Pokemon TCG Online codes to purchase (and which ones to avoid)!
(NOTE: This is not an ad or paid sponsorship for PoTown Store. Just documenting my personal experience with the site. Also should note that your results may vary. Also worth noting that before you purchase online codes from anywhere, please do as much research as you can beforehand so that you can make an informed purchase.)
The synergy between the physical and digital versions of the Pokemon Trading Card Game make things a bit weird. While the physical game can be enjoyed without ever touching the digital game, players of the digital game need to buy sealed Pokemon Trading Card Game products to unlock cards.
But what if you only want to play the online game? Buying decks and cards is particularly expensive if you only want the codes within. Also, if you have no interest or space to store physical cards, it’s an extra burden to consider in order to play a video game.
Though I wasn’t actively looking for a solution to this conundrum, I found at least one option that worked for me.
