Welcome to the Pokemon Trading Card Game. I'll be your host, theEND, and I'm here to help you with making decks/supplying you with information/anything that you need.
To build a deck around Deoxys
, it is necessary to have more than one form of Deoxys (Many Deoxys decks have one copy of each form, fitting the 4 Limit rule) for flexibility and access to all sorts of power in different scenarios. You do not necessarily have to have all 4 forms in a Deoxys deck; more than one copy of a form is sometimes used, sometimes to the extent of three copies of one form and one copy of another form. This is just an example.
is a trainer that Deoxys users prefer to include in their deck. It synergizes with Deoxys' Poke-Power to access other Deoxys' that are inside the player's deck. If a Deoxys form has been knocked out, Night Maintenance can be used to recover the forme along with other cards.
Pokemon that act as support can be used alongside Deoxys to maximize its full potential. I'll let you look through the list of cards by set using Bulbagarden's Wiki
that only cards from the Diamond and Pearl Series
up to the Platinum Series
can be used in tournaments and promotional events.
Regigigas is not a very popular choice, but still a usable Pokemon by standards. The Regi's potential is exploited by kentucky_fried_torchic's deck, Regi Madness!
, which has an assortment of Regis and other cards that act as support.
If anything, you can create your own deck for tournament uses. I find it easier myself to follow my own creations than playing with competitive decks.
