Searching Standard: Bewear / Porygon-Z Deck

Hello and welcome to another episode of Searching Standard. This week, we're taking a look at a deck from YouTuber, Flex Daddy Righteous. It features Bewear RCL 150 and has a way of getting rid of any Active Pokemon your opponent has in play. Let's begin by taking a look at the deck.

Thanks to its Big Throw attack, Bewear RCL 150 can discard your opponent's Active Pokemon and all cards attached to it. It does require winning a coin flip to do this, but, as you'll see, there are ways to make winning coin flips easier. This is usually the main attack you'll want to use, and your main goal will be to reduce the number of Pokemon your opponent has in play to zero.

In order to use Bewear RCL 150's Big Throw attack as quickly as possible, you'll want to utilize the Crazy Code Ability of Porygon-Z UNB 157. This Ability allows you to attach as many Special Energy cards from your hand to your Pokemon in any way you would like. Since there's no way to naturally evolve from Porygon UNB 154 to Porygon-Z UNB 157, you'll need to rely on Rare Candy SSH 180 to get the job done.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00   $ 0.00 $ 0.00

Both Crobat V DAA 104 and Dedenne-GX UNB 57 are useful Pokemon that allow you to draw extra cards. You'll never be able to attack with either of them, though, due to their Energy requirements, so make good use of Crobat V DAA 104's Dark Asset Ability and Dedenne-GX UNB 57's Dedechange Ability when you play them, and then leave them on the safety of your Bench.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00

In order to help you win more coin flips, you'll need something that will give you better than 50-50 odds. Glimwood Tangle DAA 162 is just such a card. It allows you to ignore the results of a coin flip and a chance to flip again. This doubles your chances of getting a result of heads, and enables you to discard your opponent's Active Pokemon more often when you use Bewear RCL 150's Big Throw attack.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00   $ 0.00 $ 0.00   $ 0.00 $ 0.00

This grouping of cards all help you find the Pokemon you need more quickly than you would by drawing your card for each turn. Quick Ball SSH 179 helps you find the Basic Pokemon you need, while Evolution Incense SSH 163 helps you find an Evolution Pokemon. Pokemon Communication TEU 152 can find any type of Pokemon as long as you have another Pokemon in your hand to put back into your deck.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00   $ 0.00 $ 0.00

As you can see, there is no Basic Energy in this deck. All of these cards are Special Energy, which can be accelerated into play by using the Crazy Code Ability of Porygon-Z UNB 157. By utilizing this Ability, you'll be able to quickly power up Bewear RCL 150's Big Throw attack and start discarding your opponent's Active Pokemon right away.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00   $ 0.00 $ 0.00   $ 0.00 $ 0.00

This batch of cards are all of the Supporters in this deck. Boss's Orders RCL 154 allows you to switch your opponent's Active Pokemon with a Pokemon from their Bench. Use this to keep your opponent from fully powering up a Pokemon that's on their Bench by moving it to their Active Spot and then discarding it. Professor's Research SSH 178 allows you to draw additional cards, but comes at the cost of discarding your current hand. This can be a great way to find more Special Energy that you can quickly attach. Skyla RCL 166 offers you the means of finding any Trainer card from your deck to put into your hand. Doing this can help you find what you need when you need it.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00

The final card in this deck is Air Balloon SSH 156. When attached to a Pokemon, that Pokemon's Retreat Cost is lowered by two Energy. By attaching Air Balloon SSH 156, you'll be able to make sure you have a fully powered Bewear RCL 150 as your Active Pokemon more easily, and you can make it more difficult for your opponent to Knock Out your Pokemon with damage counters on them.

Wrapping Up

While this deck doesn't attack in the normal way, it looks like a ton of fun to play. I'm always a sucker for a deck with an alternate way of winning.
