Deck Analysis: Reshiboar BW-On

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there.  This is Pikkdogs here with a deck article for you.  This is my first deck analysis for the Black and White on format, so this should be different.  This article will be about Reshiboar, yes Reshiboar.  This deck was first played in the HGSS-on format at Nationals 2011.  It kind of won Worlds that year (if you wanna argue about whether that deck was a Reshiboar or a Magneboar, you should probably get a life), but then it kind of fizzled out in a format with Pokemon Catcher.  But now it could be back, to check for sure , let us look at the deck more in-depth.  I will also give a little of my insight about the new format at the end. Before we get into the article, let us say hi to Pedro.  Hey Pedro do you have a news article for us?

Hey Pikkdogs.  Today’s news article is about the Olympics.  Do you have the Olympic favor Pikkdogs?

Oh I got the Olympic favor.  All the symptoms are there; inactivity, loss of productivity at work, and the belief that archery can be interesting.

Yeah that sounds like it.

Pikkdogs Pikks Three: Reshiram BW, Noctowl HGSS, and Chandelure

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

A big hello to all you OHKOers out there, this is Pikkdogs here with another Pikk Three article.  First, I have to apologize for not posting an article in a couple days.  I am just getting over a double ear infection that has had me in constant pain for about 5 days now.  I seem to be getting over it, but man those things hurt like the dickens.

Before I get into the Pikk Three article, I want to congratulate one of our readers for winning a Battle Roads with one of the deck lists on this website!  The reader (who has not revealed his name) won a BR this past weekend with the deck I made called, “Who Let The Dogs Out.”  A big congrats goes out to him.  If you would care to see the article and decklist, you can check it out  here.

Now lets time to review three cards: one that is a well known card, one that I feel is under-rated, and one from a new or un-released set.

The Staple- Reshiram BW

Description– Reshiram is a basic Fire Pokemon with 130 HP, a water weakness, and a 2 retreat cost.  Its first attack is called “Outrage”, and for CC it does 20 damage plus 10 more damage for each damage counter on Reshiram.  Its second attack is called “Blue Flare”, and for FFC it does 120 damage and you must discard two fire energies attached to Reshiram.
