Top Pokémon-GX Tactics

Top Pokémon-GX Tactics

Introduced in the Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon expansion, Pokémon-GX have already made a huge impact in the game. Every Pokémon-GX has an attack so powerful that only one of them can be used per game. Even if you have five different Pokémon-GX, only one of them can use their GX attack, and only once!

More Pokémon-GX have joined the battle in the Sun & Moon—Guardians Rising expansion. The island guardians Tapu Koko-GX and Tapu Lele-GX are ready to battle, along with Lycanroc-GX, Toxapex-GX, and more. Take a look at how you can build a cool deck using some of these amazing Pokémon-GX now.

Bank on the Mighty Whiscash

Learn How!
Whiscash's Landslip attack has mammoth potential, but it can be unreliable without a little help.
Start with the Mallow Supporter card to search up two Energy and put them on top of your deck.
If you're up against a Pokémon-GX or Pokémon-EX, attach a Choice Band to Whiscash to add a little extra damage.
Then use Landslip to hit for a guaranteed 200 base damage—300 if the third card you discard happens to be an Energy card, too!
Need help getting Mallow out on the next turn? Play Tapu Lele-GX onto your Bench and use its amazing Wonder Tag Ability to retrieve another Mallow from your deck.
You're ready to do another 200+ damage with Whiscash's powerful Landslip attack!

Solgaleo-GX Gains an Ally

Learn How!
Debuting in the Sun & Moon expansion, Solgaleo-GX brings the Sunsteel Strike attack—which has amazing power at the expense of discarding all of its Energy.
With two Metagross-GX on your Bench, you can use each one's Geotech System Ability to retrieve a Metal Energy from the discard pile and attach it to your Active Pokémon.
Play one more Energy card from your hand to get Solgaleo-GX fully powered up again.
With three Energy attached to Solgaleo-GX, you'll be able to use Sunsteel Strike once more!
