Deck Analysis: FloatZone

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there, this is Pikkdogs here with a post Pokemon Catcher deck analysis.

The subject of this article will be a deck that features Magnezone Prime and Floatzel.  One of the most popular decks going into Battle Roads will be Prime Time (Magnezone Prime and Yanmega Prime), this deck is a little different.  I consider this deck to be the spirtual successor to Mangeboar.  I am unsure if this a tier 2 deck or a fun league deck, maybe you can help decide.

Since Pokemon Catcher will make it more difficult to run a deck with bench sitting Pokemon, I decided to try a deck that had energy acceleration and free retreat from the bench sitters.  Now, you can still run Magneboar but in the Post Catcher (PC) format, the deck that started out a little shakey is about to get even shakier.

The decks main goal is to use Magnezone Prime’s “Lost Burn” attack to get a One Hit Knock Out each turn.  To get more energies on the field, Floatzel is used.  His “Water Acceleration” Poke-Power lets you attach a water energy to each Floatzel you have in play per turn, that does not include the 1 energy you can attach for your turn.

Of course this deck is very similar to Magneboar, so lets look at the pro’s and con’s of using this deck over Magneboar.

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Magnezone Prime, Bellsprout, and Max Restore

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  Its Pikkdogs here for another Pikk Three article.  Because there is not a lot of news going on right now, I have decided to do a couple Pikk Three article.  I have just started my testing for Pokemon catcher, and I think I have a really cool deck to share with you soon, so look out for that in the next week.  Also look out for the announcement of the contest winners either Monday or Tuesday.  If you still have not entered, than you have until the end of the day on Sunday June 24th.

If ya guys forgot, a Pikk Three article is like a big card review article.  One card is a card that is used a lot, another is a card that I feel is under-rated, and the third is from a new or yet un-released set.  So lets get on to the article.

Card #1 The Staple: Magnezone Prime

Description– Magnezone is a Stage 2, 140 HP Lightning Pokemon.  It has a fighting weakness, metal resistance, and a 3 retreat cost.   It’s Poke-Power, “Magnetic Draw,” lets you draw until you have 6 cards in your …

Deck Analysis: Magneboar

Monday, July 4th, 2011

A big hello to everyone in Omar-Nation.  This is Pikkdogs here with a deck analysis.  We just got done with a long card analysis series, now that we’re done with that we can talk about decks again.  

Before we get to that, lets talk about Nationals.  It’s looking like me and the team omar crew will be going to Indy.  I would love to be able to meet some of you guys at Indy.  If you wanna get in touch with me, the best way to do it would be to send me a tweet.  My handle is “pikkdogs”, just tweet me.  And for those of you who are wanting to keep up on national news at home, I will be sure to tweet what I see.  You can either follow me now, or I will try to make my tweets public before the event.

Also, we should talk about the National tournament in the magical land of Can-a-da.  Those Canadians took a break from watching hockey and drinking maple syrup to play a couple games of Pokemon.  The popular card in Canada was Yanmega Prime.  The free attacking made the card very quick and versatile.  It was in a lot of the top 16 decks.  Kingdra was a card that also saw a lot of unexpected play.  Canada usually is a little more rogue than the U.S. and their nats is a lot smaller than the one south of the border.  I do not expect to see a lot more Yanmega because of the Canadian Nats, so don’t change your deck too much.  If you have a deck that does not have a favorable matchup towards Yanmega, you might wanna think about changing, but don’t overreact too much.  Players in the U.S. have a lot of money and will play more expensive decks like Magneboar and Reshiboar.

Fun with Magnets: A Magnezone Deck.

Monday, December 27th, 2010

A big hello to all members of Omar-Nation.  This is Pikkdogs here with a deck analysis of a Magnezone deck that I made up.

Before I get into the article, I have a couple of announcements to make.  First, Ed and I at would like to wish you and yours a great Christmas, even though it is a couple days late.  I hope you guys could meet with family and friends and have a good time.  Second, our first ever contest is currently running.  So far the entries have been scant, so if you enter the contest before the deadline, you should have a decent chance at getting a prize.  Okay announcements are over, time to get to the article.

I must issue a disclaimer first, this deck isn’t very good and won’t win a tournament but can be comeptitive against almost any deck.  If you don’t care if you win a tournament or not and just want to win a couple games, this deck could be for you.

I got this idea the day before the first City Championship that I went to this year.  I had been struggling all week to perfect my Gyarados deck, and wasn’t having any success.  So I decided I should either fix the deck quick, or think of something else to play.  After doing some thinking, I took a jog.  On that jog I thought of ways to play a shuppet donk deck, and how to put together a Magnezone deck.  When I came back from the run I was sure that I came back with a consistent Magnezone list, all I had to do was put it together.
