This is a pretty good introduction to the mechanics of the Pokemon card game, and is fun to play with the deck shuffled up as it would be in a "real" game. The only bummer is that these decks are pretty one-sided: you never get to learn about strengths and weaknesses for example because all of these decks are specifically built to not overlap in that way. Similarly, none of the cards cause any special conditions such as confused / poisoned / paralyzed / etc. Lastly, the Pikachu / electric deck is considerably more powerful than the other two decks. So we have actually found it most fun having the two under-powered decks play each other as it is more fair.
