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!

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!
The champ is here!
