Burning Winds and Bolt Twister - Theme Decks

themedeck themedeck

Burning Winds: Carry a fiery storm under your wings with the Burning Winds theme deck! Let Talonflame light up the sky with Jet Shoot, while Venomoth stirs up a Dizzying Wind to keep a foe guessing—and with Yanmega’s Windfall to refill your hand, you can fly the unfriendly skies with ease. Add in Pyroar’s Flare Command and Loudred’s Energy Press to turn your opponent’s resources in your favor, and total air superiority could be yours!

Bolt Twister: Lightning and water make a dangerous combination—for your opponents! Galvantula can spin a bright Electroweb, while Heliolisk powers up its Parabolic Spark. At the same time, Kingler can drop the big Crabhammer, and Feraligatr’s Hyper Whirlpool is ready to pull the foe under. To maximize your odds, Frillish and Jellicent confuse and befuddle opposing Pokémon—sometimes the path to victory takes a few twists and turns, and sometimes you can bolt to the top!
