Pokémon World Championships Senior Division Decks

Check out the top four Senior Division decks from the 2014 Pokémon TCG World Championships.
  • Trent Orndorff (US) / Trevenant–Accelgor
    Trevenant–Accelgor / World Champion / Senior Division
  • Alex Croxton (US) / Blastoise–Keldeo-EX
    Blastoise–Keldeo-EX / Runner-Up / Senior Division
  • Grant Manley (US) / Pokémon-EX Toolbox
    Pokémon-EX Toolbox / Semifinalist / Senior Division
  • Calvin Connor (US) / Yveltal-EX–Garbodor
    Yveltal-EX–Garbodor / Semifinalist / Senior Division

Trent’s Trevenant and Accelgor deck is lots of fun to watch and maddening to play against. Trent uses Dusknoir’s Sinister Hand Ability to make sure his opponent’s Pokémon is Knocked Out at just the right moment. This deck uses few Energy cards, letting Trent include a lot of different Trainer cards.

If there’s a deck that not a lot of people were expecting to see at Worlds, it’s Alex’s Water and Lighting deck. Electrode keeps Energy cards flowing into Alex’s hand, and Blastoise gets the Energy onto Black Kyurem-EX and Keldeo-EX. It’s as effective as it is stunningly straightforward.

Yveltal-EX and Garbodor decks were popular throughout the tournament, but only Calvin managed to take it this far in the Senior Division. This deck smoothly moves Energy around Calvin’s party thanks to Yveltal-EX’s Y Cyclone attack and Darkrai-EX’s Dark Cloak Abiility.
