Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield

Deck hints and tips

Wave of Teamwork

Play Nessa from your hand, and Drednaw’s Vise Wave attack will automatically make the opponent’s Active Pokémon Paralyzed. The bond of a Gym Leader and her partner Pokémon is strong!

Rayquaza Rising!

From the edge of space comes Amazing Rayquaza (hey, that almost rhymes)—and it needs a lot of power to get its attack online! Presto, call on Zarude V and the power of its Jungle Rising attack to ramp up your Rayquaza extra quickly, then do a ton of damage with Amazing Burst!

The Championship Battle

Rally the support of Champion Leon and his Charizard! This royal duo is ready to blaze a path to success by overpowering opponents with a grand display of fireworks! Charizard’s Battle Sense Ability helps you burn through your deck to find the perfect card for any situation—if you have the right elements, you can seize that win. Battle Sense lets you discard Leon, and Charizard’s Royal Blaze does 50 more damage for every Leon card in your discard pile, so this combo just requires Leon to show up, be discarded, and cheer Charizard on!
