Considering the following... Blissey (The most commonly played deck in the Washington Area) is weak to Fighting. Empoleon becomes weaker when it is punished for retreating, and unable to deal damage without switching. Meganium d allows for searching of three pokemon from deck at once whenever it's played. Meganium d's Delta Reduction and large HP ensures that it'll survive long against non-infernape decks. Meganium's pre-evolutions are capable of stalling (putting opponent to sleep) and searching the line out (With Bayleef MT) Therefore, Meganium Delta can be rightfully declared the single best pokemon in the format. Now, the question comes... What goes well with it? If Meganium is capable of slowing games down, why not something that punishes the opponent for staying active? Why not have a pokemon that can clean up by hitting the bench after the opponent flees? Ah, now the combo becomes clear... Now how to get it to work...? That's the problem... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Pokemon x20 Meganium d (DF) x3 Meganium (MT) x1 Bayleef (MT) x3 Chikorita (MT) x3 Crobat (MT) x2 Golbat (MT) x2 Zubat (MT) x3 Chingling (MT) x2 Skarmory EX (PK) x1 Trainers x29 Rare Candy x4 Windstorm x3 Super Scoop Up x3 Night Maintenance x2 Professor Rowan x1 Bill's Maintenance x2 Steven's Advice x2 Holon Mentor x2 Celio's Network x3 Castaway x2 Scott x1 Strength Charm x2 Lake Boundary x2 Energy x11 Double Rainbow Energy x3 Multi Energy x3 Psychic Energy x4 Fighting Energy x1 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now for some obvious problems. -The energy amount is flawed. Highly. 11 is definately not enough, and there's little to remove. -Chingling winds up being either dead weight or vital each game. Usually it winds up as dead weight. What's there to remove reliance on a card that loses all usefulness after turn 1 (finding Holon Mentor or Castaway)? -Supporter line is MESSY. Obviously. -Super Scoop Up also seems problematic. It never comes up. Never. Keep it for the combo with BOTH Meganium and Crobat AND acting as a switch for Meganium, or remove? -And obviously a 3-3-3-1 line of Meganium is odd beyond belief. Recommendations on how to set the ratios?
