    Ok, this is my first tournament report so I'll try to do my best. Last week I went undefeated in qualifing with Megatr (lost in finals to Dark Twins Drew) so I knew this week I needed to play something different since many commented on the build and I would be teched against. Meganium is so good against many Empoleon decks, plus Delta Reduction with a buffer piece is amazing. Back to the tournament. My son and I head out to 6 Feet Under games in New Holland, about 1hour 20 minutes, we get there and see some great competition. I built Swalot/Meganium - I'll post it since I won't play it again. I wanted to use Swalot to Pick and Choose on Blissey, since many are playing it. My son at this point in 10 and under has won 5 straight this year and was going for his 6th. (My son for being only 7 practices with some great players in our area and is doing great this year...way to go buddy).

    1st match

    Random - Delcatty/colorless/Zangoose deck

    I start and notice that his Zangoose starter has Thick Skin :eek:..great he teched against me already :tongue:. Since I candy into Meganium MT, awesome misplay. Ok, so I stall until I get Meganium d going, his deck is almost entirely weak to mine. Delta Reduction...prize, prize. He has a lone skitty on his bench. I grab a buffer peice attach (luckily) and he grabs Delcatty EX....does 120 damage with upstream. Buffer saves me. I attach and do 120 damage. GG

    1-0

    2nd Match

    Kyle - "HOSS" type stuff

    We both have HORRIBLE starts. I get 1 energy in 9 turns, my bench is completely set up but I am to far behind. I take 2 prises he takes them all. 1 energy cost me the match. We both have played each other for 3 tournaments straight (he is 2-1 :mad:..lol). He gets me...GG

    1-1

    3rd Match

    ??? - Dusknoir/ClaydollEx

    I am thrilled since Swalot is weak to Pyshic :cool:. He starts and candies fast into Dusknoir. I know the rules so I keep my bench to 3. I notice that Ducknoir places counters....yesssss (no weakness)! I put up swalot, pick and choose and burn through his guys. Meganium Ultra Powder is amazing ( 2 paralyzes in a row). I win. GG

    2-1

    4th match

    ???? - Tyranitar/ Rampardos

    We start and I get a great start, finally! Plenty of energy, full bench...amazing. He TEAM Galactis me 4 times in one game. He threw scissors every time. I through rock after my 1st loss. Win 3 of them. Hand Manipulation works against him. Pupitar is weak to Grass, then he evolves to Tyranitar MT and he is weak to fighting. I delta reduction him with buffer's, GG.

    3-1

    In between rounds we are all talking (great bunch of players in our area - really good guys) Robert, my son wins his 6th Battle Roads in a row!!! Everyone gives the congrats...he could care less since he was playing the Pokemon TFG in between rounds and was loving it. I see Adam Capriola is undeated...I proceed to tell him (kiddingly) "I think my deck could give you a run!!" He of course laughs and we begin to talk about Meganium's Ultra Powder attack, he doesn't really like it...I love it for 1 energy. They put pairings up...crap. I actually have to play him, way to put my foot in my mouth.

    5th Match

    Adam C. - The "Hoss" Hauler deck

    As we sit I tell him my deck is really junk and I am just eating my words. He has done fantastic lately and I know if I get a bad start...gg. He mulligans 2 times. I start with Megaium MT, candy, windstorm, chikorita MT, grass, double raindow and mentor and celio's. Amazing opening hand. He starts with Riolu and a fighting...he starts...blam 30 damage. I draw a bayleef - candy to meg's, use mentor. Ultra Powder. He has Lucario, hit me for another 30. I attach double - 50 damage. He pulls Luc Lv. x... Stance :eek: I wait a turn...he pulls nothing. I win...

    4-1

    top cut comes out...ugh 5th place. 5 people are 4-1. Oh well. I tied for 1st and get the axe...I still had a blast.
