For those who dont know how this is run, its pretty self explanitory. Like Flychamp, you truck the pokemon upfront early with donphan. The reason he is a better replacement is his stage 1 and 120 health, and his pokebody. He also does at lease 60, mabye 80 for 1 energy. So, all in all, it can take more damage then machamp, can dish out more consistent damage then machamp, and doesnt have a bad lv. X that is an eye for an eye effect pretty much. Then, flygon makes your retreat non-existent, and flygon does what flygon does, lock them and deck them, blow them up, kill lvl x’s, destroy stadiums, you know, flygon stuff. no big deal. I like to see someone take a consistent 60-130 damage starting either turn 1 if you go second or fer sher turn 2. Let alone dish out 160 or 150 damage for ohko’s. Weakness may be a factor with the new Feraligatr. I hope flygon can do its thang to get around it, and i havent tested against it yet so i guess we will see. But some ideas to smooth out the edges(if there are any ;) ) i would appreciate.

    I’m really out of my element here. I don’t feel like I have enough experience with much of what’s laid out here. I have seen you play it, and it is quite impressive. I think it’s a deck to beat (or prepare for), but I have no real suggestions on how to improve it. I just haven’t really played any of the pieces enough to comment. Sorry.

  • Dewd i have yet to loose to this exact build, it isnt as effective as you think and I dont play any water either. I wouldnt saacrifice any of the 4-4 bebe/roseane’s almost every deck should have. And if you really want to have a better start, sack some of the more uneccesary cards and play 4 spiritomb and hope to start with one that way you can evolve your bench and set up quicker, because your deck will fall to pieces against someone else whom starts with spiritomb, there bench will be developed and all your trainers will mean nothing if you cant play them. Just a thought. Also Gastly SF would cause you problems. keep your supporters a 4-4 and then if there is extra room by all means add in the new trainers.

    I haven’t tried runing it yet but I would recomend puting in a menectric in case of mirror matches because it protects u from flygon also i dont see the point in the uxie

  • djerf

    you run uxie so that if you start start with no hand and 1 basic, then draw a lux ball or roseannes, you dont auto lose

  • Shadownight

    ok umm rosannes and claydols are banned so wat do i take out for those.?

    • Ed

      Max out the Collector, and then run a bunch of Prof Oak’s New Theory.
