Welcome to the XY Ancient Origins set that gave us very powerful Pokemon EX and Trainer cards that have seen play in the Pokemon TCG competitive scene ever since their initial release! One very powerful combo that existed thanks to this deck was Vileplume and Forest of Giant Plants which let you evolve grass Pokemon without having to wait turns in advance. This made the item lock ability from the stage 2 Vileplume very strong and was paired with cards such as Rowlet & Alolan Exeggutor GX, Vespiquen, and a box type deck that focused on cards such as Regice and Jolteon EX. Vespiquen when paired with Unown to draw extra cards and add damage to Vespiquen’s attack was also a very relevant combo from this set as Vespiquen has been popular ever since its release into the Pokemon TCG and is still relevant in today’s expanded metagame. Giratina EX from this set also showed its worth in competitive play for as long as it’s been printed. Its amazing ability that stops Mega Evolution Pokemon from damaging it when paired with its Chaos Wheel attack that shuts down usage of Tool Cards, Stadiums, and most importantly, Special Energy cards. Some other relevant cards to include Lugia EX, Hoopa EX. Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Flareon. This set also has its fair share of hard to find secret rare golden Pokemon and Trainer cards such as Primal Kyogre, Primal Groudon, M Rayquaza, Gold Trainers’ Mail, and Gold Energy Retrieval!
