I'm sure most of us have established some kind of house rule(s) when playing PTCG; extra prize cards, hand refreshes even when you have a basic, letting your opponent start set-up, etc; either for better testing or just for fun.
AAn interesting way mywe brothershave andbeen I playplaying at home and with friends is with literally, an expanded deck:
Unlimited Format, 100 cards, 5 max each card, Draw 10 instead of 7, D&P rules (best IMO), 8 or 10 prizes, and 6 benched.
Some sick decks can be made.

'''Forretress Donk'''
There was a less consistent version of this deck during the Diamond Pearl era using {{TCG|Secret Wonders}} {{TCG ID|Secret Wonders|Blastoise|2}} with its ''Waterlog'' Poké-POWER to attach Energy to {{TCG ID|Legends Awakened|Forretress|28}}; although, this method lacks unlimited Energy attachment and also requires more Energy cards. The release of {{TCG ID|Black & White|Emboar|20}} allowed the creation of Forretress Donk. {{TCG ID|Boundaries Crossed|Blastoise|31}} of {{TCG|Boundaries Crossed}} is an alternate, more viable Energy attachment.

The most consistently-winning decks in {{TCG|Unlimited Format}} are '''turn one donk decks''' (''T1 donk''). Forretress Donk is this type of deck; capable of taking all prize cards or Knocking-Out all of the opponent's Pokémon on the first turn
The ideal start would be Sableye; Sableye's Poké-BODY allows the player to go first. Using the various Trainer cards, the player would want to set up a Blastoise, Espeon, and Shuckle. Blastoise's ''Deluge'' Ability allows the player to attach, as often as they like, Water Energy cards to Shuckle. Shuckle's ''Fermenting Liuid'' Poké-BODY lets the player draw a card every time an Energy card is attached to it. Espeon's ''Energy Return'' Poké-POWER allows the player to return those Energy cards to the hand. This establishes an infinite loop of drawing with Shuckle. After drawing the needed cards, the next step would be to get out Forretress and attach the Energy cards to it instead of Shuckle. Forretress's ''Iron Shell'' Poké-BODY has the player flip a coin every time an Energy card is attached to it; tails places 2 damage counters on all Pokémon (excluding any Forretress). The damage to Blastoise and Espeon can be continously healed with an attached {{TCG ID|Roaring Skies|Healing Scarf|84}} Pokémon tool.
