Despite months of playing Pokemon TCG Online religiously, I was unaware of its leaderboards until long after. In my defense, they live on the Pokemon website and not within the game, making it very easy to miss

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!

Is the Pokemon Trading Card Game Community Sleeping on Duraludon VMAX?

Duraludon VMAX made its debut as part of Evolving Skies. While it hasn’t disappointed to the extreme like Rayquaza VMAX has, Duraludon VMAX doesn’t get much play or discussion.
