Lt. Surge's Charging Center (TCG)

The Lt. Surge's Charging Center Deck is a LightningColorless type deck found in the Gym Heroes Strategy Guide. The deck is classified as one of the advanced decks, containing more rare cards and strategy than other easy-to-build decks.


This deck has enough shocks in it to make any opponent's hair stand on end! "Charging Center" takes advantage of the many Lt. Surge Pokémon that allow you to build up a lot of Energy on your Pokémon quickly. You can then blast the Defending Pokémon with huge attacks like Lt. Surge's Magneton's Mega Shock or Lt. Surge's Raichu's Thunderbolt. Don't forget to take advantage of the Electric Current attack on Lt. Surge's Electabuzz. It's a great way to spread your Energy out to the Pokémon that need it most.

The Potions and Super Potions can help keep your Pokémon fro getting Knocked Out while they're busy pulling Energy out of the discard pile and charging up for a big attack. Misty's Wrath works well here. It gives you more card drawing and can put more Lightning Energy into your discard pile so your Electabuzz can Charge back up.
