    I decided on BlissCat for BRs on Thursday, and get to Mesquite for my 1st BR early so I can beg for a Blissey and Delcatty ex. Alec (swampert97) lets me borrow a Blissey, and another guy lets me borrow a Delcatty ex, so I fill out my list and begin...

    Round 1: Bye

    Round 2: Demetre (Magmortar Delcatty)
    UGH, why do I have to play one of my friends R1?!? I get setup with a Bliss and a Catty T2 and he sacs a few Pokes to get setup. However, once he's setup, I have the better setup and do 130 with a Happy Chance for a OHKO. 1-0

    Round 3: ???(Electivire/Raichu PK)
    I basically outspeed him and just Boost/Pluspower/Charm whne I need to FTW. 2-0

    Round 4: ???(Empoleon/Lucario)
    He gets 40 on my Happiny T1 with Riolu, I Mentor for Chansey, Chansey, Skitty, Baby Evo and lay the other 2. I have Catty+Fire+Celio's for Blissey, so I'm feeling pretty good. He BF, Lucario, atach and Aura Sphere, and I can't pull a WS for the life of me FTL. Not even FF really helped. 3-1

    Round 5: Alec (R-Gon)
    We both get setup, but he finds his 1 Eggs d prized. We trade blows, but in the end, I bring up Catty ex, attah, NRG Draw, NRG Draw, Constrain, and shuffle 12 Energies+2 Pluspowers and a Charm FTW. GG, buddy.

    I'm in Top4, but find my opponent changed his deck halfway through, so I advance straight to the final round.

    Finals: Guy from Round 2
    Game 1: I get a great setup and have Blissey run through everything with well-timed Charms and Pluspowers FTW.

    Game 2: Like Game 1, except we both got slower starts, but in the end, it didn't matter.

    So, got myself a shiny new silver medal, get a 4TH Lucario Lv. X, and a Reverse Galactic's Wager in my packs. After the tournament, me and Alec just hung out and we named my Dialga plush Fabio, THE BEST NAME EVER! lol, jk. But we did name him Fabio.

    I put in Drake's Stadium and Warp Points just to see how well they do, and I already have a new Vic. Medal, so I'm just having fun here. We're playing mixed due to low number in the lower divisions.

    Round 1: Nancy L.(DuskQueen)
    Really cool deck, and she was really nice too. I get setup faster, but she fights back with Dusknoir (ugh, C-Resist) and Queen and annoys with Mightyena. It came down to time, me 3-2 I think. GG. 1-0

    Round 2: Cameron(BlissCat with different Trainer Engine)
    We both get relatively good setups, and we exchange blows for a while. It comes really close, but time's called with 4-2 me leading. 2-0

    Round 3: ???(Empoleon)
    Drake's actually played a part in this one! He can't get a BF going until it's too late, and by that time I have 3 Blisseys, 2 Catty, 1 Catty ex FTW. 3-0

    Round 4: Josh H.(Garchomp Delcatty)
    He gets his tech Blasty d out pretty fast, stopping me from taking advantage of Weakness, but the Blissey swarm's too much for him to handle. GG dude. 4-0

    Round 5: Demetre (Aggron Delcatty)
    I get Delcatty out T2, Energy Draw into Blissey, Delcatty, and another Fire., play it all down, and just nail everything I need early. It was over in a few minutes. 5-0

    Finals: Cameron (Mirror)
    Game 1: Can't remember alot about this one, but I ended up coming out on top. 1-0

    Game 2: I get NOTHING, and he gets a great setup FTL. 1-1

    Game 3: Take game 2, and reverse the sides. 2-1

    WHOO, 2 BR wins in 1 weekend!

    Alec, thanks for the Blissey.
    Darryl, thanks for the Delcatty ex.
    Staff, you guys were great.
    ...and much, much more.

    Weren't any really!

    Ft. Worth:
    When I get there I'm still undecided between Empoleon and Moving TRUK, but I eventually go with Moving TRUK. I mess around with my buddies and the tournament starts!

    Round 1: Demetre (HippoCario)
    I sat down across from Demetre and was like "O GOD...." because I already knew he was playing Hippowdon. Anyway, I don't get T1 donked (YES), and I pull some good moves to get rid of Hippowdon's effects on my Blisseys. At one point he layed a bunch of Cessations, and I really didn't understand, but I just WS and Bliss FTW from there. GG 1-0

    Round 2: Chris (Garchomp/Dugtrio)
    I get the worst start EVER (Buzz), and draw crap for a couple turns. About T3-4 he Wagers, I lose, but I get exactly what I was needing, and he draws nothing. I get a Blissey or 2 setup with Buzzes waiting and just Happy Chance a few times FTW. GG 2-0

    Round 3: Tori N. (Mario)
    UGH...more Fighting decks. I ALMOST get T1 donked, but I topdeck Mentor and pull out of it. The game goes back and forth, and she almost had me when she flipped 2 Heads on Dynamicpunch, but I get lucky and flip Heads on Confusion. After that, she pulls out Luc Lv.X, KO's Bliss, I send up another, and Happy Chance to get a L out of my discard. She can't pull another basic, so I Warp/Vire/Giga Impact FTW. GG Tori, 3-0.

    Round 4: Alec N. (BlissCat)
    I can't remember a bunch about this, if you could help out Alec, that'd be great. All I know is I win. 4-0

    Round 5: Blake (InferCatty)
    He draws dead for a couple turns, and I get T2 Bliss and roll through 2 Chingling while he gets setup. He sends up Budew, has a good play in his hand, and I Wager his 11 card hand and win, screwing his setup. Bliss rolls through a couple more Pokemon, and he fights back with Infernape. The early prize loss and the Wager were too much though, GG man. 5-0

    Top Cut: Demetre (HippoCario)
    UGH. Not again...

    Round 1: I get nothing and send up Electabuzz to stall FTL.

    Round 2: This actually turns into a game, and Blissey+SSU+VireX is too brutal for him to take.

    Round 3: This actually turned into a game of who could donk the other person. I started with Kid, he starts, attaches to Riolu, WILD KICK!...tails. Whew, I Mentor, setup the T2 Blissey, and Outlet for a Lightning. He gets nothing else, I SSU the Elekid, Blissey, Boost FTW.

    I'll finish later.

    Thanks for reading!

    Actually, everyone's USING Bliss more, specifically BlissCat. I tried to counter Bliss at Arlington, but I had the worst luck ever with LucRamp, UGH...

    Adam, I'm actually more surprised that people haven't countered YOU yet (except Kettlez)!
  11. Need to update your report with the Ft.Worth BR.

    Pft I didn't counter Adam; the field had 3-4 Flygex in it (which I assume is a rough matchup). If anything, I countered myself by playing 0 cards in my deck! : )

    Great job, Andy.

    Well, Mythic TRUK has a good matchup with Moving TRUK, so you DID technically counter it, even if you weren't meaning to counter it in the first place. Anyway, thanks, hope to see you this weekend!

    And thanks to everyone else as well!

    Great Job Andy! BTW, have you read Spotter's newsletter email yet? It should seem pretty familiar :lol:. See you in Garland!

    Alec, please keep in mind that my note did not in any way call attention to any individual. Rather, it is a blanket reminder to the entire Pokémon community. A reminder that I believe EVERYONE can benefit from.

    I know, but the whole time I was reading it I was thinking about that game, it's almost like you wrote that just for Andy.
