What’s up 60 Cards readers? Your boy Zach has officially landed in Melbourne and I am quickly writing this article on a train towards my AirBNB. Getting back into the juicy subject, how do I pick a deck for an event?
That is a front loaded question and you might find many answers in the process of trying to answer it. In this article, I will share some of the tips that I have learned on my Pokemon journey thus far and spill my secret to success. I don’t want to miss my train stop so let’s jump into the article right now. *queue jumping*

Well, there are plenty of ways to pick you play and all for various reasons, but how do I pick my decks for events? It might get a little long winded, but this is gonna be some quality stuff right here! Usually before an event, I look to do as much research as possible to see exactly which decks are actually out there! If you aren’t a premium subscriber to this site, which you totally should be by the way, there are plenty of free resources such as YouTube channels and information on Twitter! We regularly post FREE articles too and yes, I will take the shameless plug opportunity here haha! After doing your rounds of research, you should build the ‘metagame’ with your real cards (feel free to use proxies) and on PTCGO to make sure that you know how each different deck plays out! You might fall in love with a deck that you have never tried before or you might end up hating the deck that earned you all of your League Cup CP! Pokémon is quite a fascinating game when it comes to deck choice, some players have their favourites, some are superstitious, and some players are lost in general! The goal is to be as prepared as possible, know the metagame, make an informed choice, and be prepared for how your day plays out!
One thing that I get asked often is, ‘what is the play for this weekend?’
