Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield

Deck hints and tips

Munch Your Way to Victory

The mighty Gardevoir VMAX clocks in at a seriously impressive 320 HP, and its Max Cure attack heals 50 damage, which means it can keep itself in battle quite a bit longer than your opponent may have planned. When you pair that healing with Suspicious Food Tin, you heal even more damage, and your opponent could struggle to take down your big Pokémon VMAX!

Darkness Evolution Thumping

Sometimes evolving your Basic Pokémon pays off in multiple ways! For this combo, you need to have Scraggy in play. Then, play Piers to search for Scrafty, evolve your Scraggy into Scrafty, and use the Bad Brawl attack for a 180-damage hit! Thump, thumpity-thump—Scrafty has beatdowns to spare!

Journey through the Galar region and challenge Gym Leaders in stadiums packed with cheering fans. You’ll find collections featuring the Gym Leaders you’ll face on your quest to become the Champion!
