Single Strike Urshifu VMAX vs. Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX: Which League Battle Deck Should You Get?

The latest decks in the Pokemon Trading Card Game League Battle Deck series are based around two different variations of the same Pokemon: Single Strike Urshifu VMAX and Rapid Strike Urshifu VMAX. They play quite different from one-another, making the choice of which one to get first all the more confusing for newcomers with aspirations of playing more competitively.

It’s hard to go wrong either way. Both are good decks out-of-the-box and serve as foundations for you to shape into top-tier decks. Both come with great Supporter cards that work well in these decks and future decks you may build down the road. Both share the same typing resistances and weaknesses. Both are really fun to play!

If you’re looking for detailed breakdowns of each one, as well as deck lists you can use to upgrade them, I got you!
