Blissey, A Tough Egg to Crack

Special Thanks to PokéBeach for the image.

Blissey is invading the nation. The Pokémon TCG community is currently seeing a huge mass of players using Blissey as their primary Pokémon. There are slight variations thou, but the main strategy is to power-up its Happy Chance attack.

Zapped Egg is a variation of the Blissey deck having Raichu MT as its energy engine. Its main strategy is setup Raichu to energize Blissey until being KOed. When Blissey has the insane number of energies, off it goes to KO anyone in its way. Having Trainers to speed up setup and vast amount of Lightning and Boost energies, Blissey's attack is limitless.

Another Blissey variation is called Grass Time which includes Celebi MT and Exeggutor MT. Its starter Pokémon, Celebi can use Sprouting in the early game to stall Grass energies. Then, in the later part of the game, Celebi can also use Leaf Tornado to manipulate energies to either Blissey or Exeggutor. Its secondary attacker, Exeggutor can also attack using insane amount of energy and stall up to two Grass energies to your Pokémon. This deck revolves around this synergy, playing energies and making them stay by retreating and manipulating them. Since it needs a lot of retreating, just in case the going gets tough, it is packed with Trainers such as Warp Point, Switch and Super Scoop Up.

The third variation of Blissey is the BlissCatty. It is composed of Delcatty PK and Sableye CG. The deck makes use of the added effect of Blissey's Happy Chance attack that fetches a basic energy card from the Discard Pile. While Delcatty can discard an energy to draw three cards and Sableye can see the top card of your deck and discard it if you want, Blissey can use those discarded energies to power up its own attack all at once. It has the basic Trainer line with a slight twist in the Energy line adding Holon Energy WP and Holon Energy FF with Psychic and Fire to Retreat and surpass Weakness.

Other variations are really limitless. Some are using it with Magneton PK that shares its energy greed attack. Some are using Lucario for Balance. Some are even using it with Manectric MT and Crobat MT! The possibilities are endless.

Since Blissey can stand on its own, any card added with it to attain its full potential will make any deck victorious! Truly, Blissey is a tough egg to crack.
