PokemanDan’s PokeClass Episode 9 – Allergy Flower (VileGar Analysis)

by PokemanDan ~ November 2nd, 2010.

This week, I’m analyzing a popular deck from the recent Battle Roads. Vileplume/Gengar locks trainers for the whole game and I’m analyzing what you need to do to play it.

    Ditto for the mirror has another great unmentioned plus. The counter placement won’t set off Fainting Spell. I think Umbreon is a better tech, though. It can be used in more situations.

    The deck is good, but I don’t feel like it will top in lots of tourneys. It may make cut, but then it loses in timed 2 of 3 matches. It’s slow. Undoubtedly, we will see some good builds that do pull off wins, but I think that it will be fairly matchup-specific. SP is the most popular deck at the moment, and all SP needs is a Dialga G Lv. X to get a turn full of trainers here and there.

    The nice thing about the deck is that it doesn’t have any real bad matchups. It can beat anything. It’s problem, though, is that it can easily lose to anything that isn’t ultra trainer heavy. With Dialga G and this deck being popular, though, that means there isn’t much for ultra trainer heavy decks floating around.

    Also, the deck runs tons of supporters, and Smeargle’s popularity makes the matchup ripe for abuse. GengarPlume is usually not getting early KOs, but versus Smeargle, it will be giving lots of free setup help to the opponent.

    And you missed the best tech, Mightyena La. It dissolves SP decks and gives you the edge in the mirror. I wouldn’t play Gengar without playing Mightyena.
