"Construct the most prestigious Akropolis and develop cohesive districts for your citizens. As you create new buildings, you will expand your city - either spreading out or building up.

Pokémon TCG: Players Cup II Finals - Pikarom vs Pikarom

The Pokémon TCG Players Cup II Championship was played over the weekend and the final two decks were both Pikarom. The final match was Zach Lesage of Canada vs Brent Tonisson of the UK.

In a format that is dominated by Zacian ADP and with Pikarom losing so much with Electropower and Thunder Mountain everyone assumed it would no longer be a competitive deck. However new Pokémon cards like Vikavolt V and Boltund V, and trainer item cards like Crushing Hammer has help keep this deck in the top tier.

Each player was using a slight variation of the deck with Zach's winning deck being a Mew3 (MewMew) hybrid. The only other major difference in Pokémon is Zach choosing to use Vikavolt V as a stall tactic while Brent went with Tapu Koko V for draw support.

The rest of the Top 16 featured; a Baby Blows Deck, 4 Zacian ADP Deck, 3 additional Pikarom Decks, a Lightning Mew3 Deck, a Centiskortch V Deck, 2 Zacian LucMetals Decks, and 1 Eternatus VMAX Deck.
