Takashi runs a relatively slim number of Pokémon in his Yveltal-EX and Garbodor deck, allowing him to include a variety of Trainer cards. He can set up quickly thanks to cards such as Colress and Bianca.

The power of Pokémon-EX is on full display with Hitoshi’s intriguing deck. He uses Aromatisse and its Fairy Transfer Ability to move the Rainbow Energy and Prism Energy around on his Pokémon, which all have different Energy needs. Similarly, he can use this Energy with the Fairy Garden Stadium card to give his Pokémon zero retreat cost.

Yui’s Yveltal-EX and Garbodor deck also includes Bouffalant, whose Gold Breaker attack is a solid stopper against Pokémon-EX. Yui also gets a lot of value from Absol and its Mind Jack attack, allowing her to continually weaken her opponent’s party.
