I participated in the Chushikoku Showdown tournament hosted by Enemaru from Okayama and Lemon from Kagawa. [Note: This was a tournament focussed on the island of Shikoku and the Chugoku region of the island of Honshu.

Find also some explanatory comments inside square brackets, italicised. Hi all, I’m 774 from Sendai City. At the recent Pokemon Japan Nationals Online (PJNO) I played my favorite type of deck, control. This tournament had a lot of strong players and I knew it was going to be really tough, so I decided to play a deck with my signature style. As usual, you can read this article in its entirety for free. If you do, I’ll be very happy. Deck Building My interest was initially piqued when I heard about a Delcatty control deck that was used at the Momoya Cup in May. I reached out to Aurora Mikann (@ pokeka_mikann ) who taught me about the deck, and decided to try it out myself. About three weeks before the PJNO, I was finally able to play Pokemon in a face to face s
