That made no sense.

Scenario 1

You start with 6 prizes.
Your opponent starts with 6 prizes.

= You knockout enemy <insert Pokemon>.
= You take one prize.

You have 6 prizes.
Your opponent has 5 prizes.

+ Your Vespiquen's Green Dignity is active.
Green Dignity would not be active in this case:

-- If your opponent has a Vespiquen (Stormfront), Green Dignity would be acive.
The only problem with Green Dignity is that you must constantly keep your advantage over your opponent. The match's prize ratio would to be in your favor; a safe zone would be considered "6 Prizes [You]/ 4 Prizes [Opponent]" for example.

EDIT: D'oh. :'( I need to start playing again.

no. " As long as you have more Prize cards left than your opponent,"
means as long as you have knocked out less of your opponent's pokemon.

Actually, you're right. I forgot that it's you who takes Prize cards when you knock out your opponent's Pokemon, not your opponent taking their own prize cards. My bad; how embarrassing. >3> It was my mistake.

So after this revelation on my lack of playing the TCG for long, it seems Vespiquen is only viable when in times of crisis. Taking into the consideration of how the scenario is with Vespiquen, it's most likely a mid-game card when both players are supposed to be on an even scale (For instance, 4 Prize [You]/ 5 Prize [Opponent] ratio). It has the capability of turning the tides in your favor, but aside from that, it's mediocre.

As said by Michael, Cherrim (Stormfront) is necessary to turn Vespiquen into an average card that helps transform it into something on par with the likes of Lv.X's, skittles Garchomp, etc. Vespiquen is a last resort type of card from the way I see it.

Wigglytuff decks are renowned to be obscenely fast. There is no better card accel than Base Set Bill and Professor Oak, seriously. 30% of the time, by turn three, Wigglytuff is ready to go. If you get the lucky 15 or so % chance of a really good hand, Wigglytuff is ready to go by turn 2, and you'll be eating through your enemies with 60 damage Do The Wave.

That, and Do The Wave has to be one of the most hilarious things that spell doom ever. :P

I've played up to right before D/P sets, and there's still no deck more satisfying to play than Haymaker+Wigglytuff decks. :P

wigglytuff is ILLEGAL. I think i'll go with the weezing stradagy. With 4 croagunk and 4 toxicroak. 2 mystrius treasures and 2 majestic Dawn (My favorite expansion). Also, Roserade (Stormfront) also has a chance of poisoning.

MD toxicroak can pioson while MT toxicroak can keep the poison. Weezing then does 50 damage each turn. That spells doom to everything in four turns! Roserade and MD toxicroak can be offensive types. 60 for 3? That's good. spelling 110 damge in 1 turn pretty much! With machamp being so good toxicroak can beat him down and roserade can be a mewtwo counter. Dusknoir may be a problem, but he'll die in a few turns from 4 weezing!
The MT toxicroak can deal a good 30 damge if you cant use the other one. The croagunk used will be the MD one because he can cause a status problem. Roserade has a different weakness so mo worrys!
