Era 2010-2012

TyRam, often also referred to as ReshiPhlosion, was a popular deck archetype in the Pokémon TCG during the later part of the '10-'11 and the beginning of the '11-'12 Play! Pokémon seasons. Following the format rotation to HGSS-on, ReshiPhlosion was a very consistent powerful deck that often placed very commonly in many Pokémon TCG tournaments.


TyRam took both 3rd and 4th place in the Masters division of the 2011 World Championships. A variant called Reshiphlosion was used by Christopher Kan to win the 2011 World Championships Senior Division; his deck was then printed as a World Championship deck.


The deck's strategy focuses on consistently attacking with Reshiram's Blue Flare to do 120 damage every turn, starting turn 2 or 3. Typhlosion's Poké-Power, Afterburner, and the standard energy attach each turn would allow the player to accomplish this. Ninetales's Poké-Power, Roast Reveal would allow the player to draw through their deck faster, while charging up Typhlosion's Afterburner. Cleffa is exclusively used for draw support, due to the usefulness of its attack, Eeeeeek.
