Her deck strategy seems to be half powerful attacks, half opponent annoyance. She also uses Pokémon Trader to find mostly her Moltres. With the Firegiver Pokémon Power, Moltres brings 1-4 Fire Energy cards to her hand when it's placed on the Bench. She has Pokémon that can annoy with status ailments like her Fossil Magmar's Smog and Smokescreen, and her Vulpix with its Confuse Ray. Energy Removal helps prevent enemy attack, and Lass thwarts Trainer Card based strategies. She also retrieves many of her discarded Fire Energy cards with Energy Retrieval.

In Pokémon Card GB2
