| Punches 'n' Bites
Punches 'n' Bites is the name of the deck used by Patrick Martinez, who was the champion of the Senior Division in the 2015 World Championships. It is one of the four 2015 World Championships Decks, released in November 2015, and is based around Manectric and Seismitoad. Each Deck comes with a Worlds 2015 themed Deckbox, a booklet about the championships, a non-tournament-legal print of the sixty card deck, and the 2015 World Championships Pin. The cards included in the deck aren't the prints actually used in the decks, but are the most recent printing of the lowest rarity of the cards.
Patrick Martinez dominated the Pokémon TCG Senior Division with his Punches 'n' Bites deck, just as its star player Seismitoad-EX dominated tournaments during the 2015 season! Golbat and Crobat bring the "bites" side of the equation. Manectric-EX helps dish out extra damage, and if an opponent isn't playing Pokémon Tools cards to boost its Assault Laser attack, you can fix that with the help of Team Flare and their handy Head Ringer!
Patrick did some serious research in preparation for Worlds. "I built every deck and played every day. I had a great testing group which made me more prepared for the field." Even with all that preparation, he says that as the event began, "I was undecided on my deck choice and I was nervous about playing people from around the world." That didn't translate into stage fright! Patrick's most memorable moment was "playing on stage in front of hundreds of people." In his final game of the tournament, with the help of Crobat and Super Scoop Up, Patrick Knocked Out three Pokémon in a single turn to become World Champion!
