Pika-Mander (TCG)

The Pika-Mander Deck is a FireLightning type deck found in the Gym Heroes Strategy Guide. The deck is classified as one of the easy-to-build decks, containing more common cards and less strategy than advanced decks.


This deck combines the speed of the mouse with the might of the dragon! Most of the Pokémon in this speedy deck have attacks that require very little Energy to use and also hit pretty hard. The idea here is to come out fighting and take out your opponent's Pokémon before he or she is really ready to handle your mice and dragons.

Use Gust of Wind to blow a big Pokémon without enough Energy up to fight your little hard-hitters. Both Blaine's Charmander and Charmander hit hard but use up Energy as they attack. Use Energy Retrieval to power them up again. Misty's Wrath is great for drawing cards, and you can use Energy Retrieval again to get some of the Energy you discard when you play Misty's Wrath.
