A Shining Hello!

Hey 60Cards readers, I am back with the dirt on an otherwise shining Standard format! That being said, we are now live in the short-lived BREAKThrough to Shining Legends format! With what seems like Pokemon releasing a mini-set every year now, we have to deal with formats that live for only three weeks annually. That being said, most players are overlooking this fresh format in favor of testing decks with the unreleased Crimson Invasion cards for London Internationals. Nonetheless, I have a few new decks to introduce to you that seem like great choices for League Cups, and I will go over some of my thought process of deck choice going into a major event.


If you have read my last article on Golisopod-GX, you may have guessed that is is one of my favourite cards to base decks around! In general, I have taken the backbone of my Golisopod-GX/Gumshoos-GX deck and have added in Zoroark-GX. Zoroark-GX provides us with a fluid evolution line, some fair draw power, and the option for a secondary attacker! If you haven’t read my last article, check it out here: Golisopod-GX Article
