Pokémon World Championships Masters Division Decks

Check out the top four Masters Division decks from the 2014 Pokémon TCG World Championships.
  • Andrew Estrada (CA) / Genesect-EX–Virizion-EX
    Genesect-EX–Virizion-EX / Champion / Masters Division
  • Igor Costa (PT) / Genesect-EX–Virizion-EX
    Genesect-EX–Virizion-EX / Runner-Up / Masters Division
  • Michikazu Tsuda (JP) / Pokémon-EX Toolbox
    Pokémon-EX Toolbox / Semifinalist / Masters Division
  • Paulo Silva (PT) / Genesect-EX–Virizion-EX
    Genesect-EX–Virizion-EX / Semifinalist / Masters Division

Andrew’s Virizion-EX and Genesect-EX deck keeps the Pokémon count slim in favor of many Pokémon Trainer cards. But one Pokémon he decided to include was Mr. Mime, which protects his Benched Pokémon from attacks. This sound strategy gave Andrew the title of World Champion.

The 2012 World Champion chose to play this deck after seeing its popularity at the US National Championships. It was a smart choice, delivering a runner-up spot in the finals.

Michikazu uses the burly Mega Kangaskhan-EX to deal the bulk of the damage for this team. With 230 HP, this Pokémon can withstand a lot of damage. The Aromatisse allows Michikazu to remove all the Energy from Mega Kangaskhan-EX and then use Max Potion to heal the Pokémon without penalty.

Genesect-EX and Virizion-EX is a powerful enough deck that it showed up twice in the top-4. Paolo’s version included Drfblim to take care of all the Pokémon relying on Special Energy.
