Date: May 5th, 2008 Name: Damage Spread FTW! Author: Flygon999 & mca3 TOTAL CARDS: 60 POKEMON: 20 1 : Empoleon Lv.X, DP-120 1 : Empoleon, DP-4 2 : Empoleon, MD-17 2 : Prinplup, DP-58 1 : Piplup, MD-72 2 : Piplup, MD-71 2 : Claydol, GE-15 2 : Baltoy, GE-60 2 : Bronzong, MD-16 2 : Bronzor, MD-52 3 : Pachirisu, GE- TRAINERS: 24 2 : Night Maintenance, MT-113 1 : Warp Point, MD-88 3 : Rare Candy, GE-102 4 : PlusPower, SW-121 1 : Time-Space Distortion, MT-124 1 : Scott, PK-81 2 : Roseanne's Research, SW-125 3 : Steven's Advice, PK-83 4 : Bebe's Search, SW-119 1 : Team Galactic's Wager, MT-115 1 : Moonlight Stadium, GE-100 1 : Lake Boundary, MT-112 ENERGY: 16 2 : Scramble Energy, DF-89 2 : Double Rainbow Energy, EM-87 12 : Water Energy, DP-125 Strategy: Start out with: Pachirisu, Piplup, or Brozor!! Any is fine! Pachirisu for filling up the bench, Piplup, then go to Prinplup/Empoleon and spread damage, or Bronzor, evolve to Bronzong, and spread with him!!!! Claydol is in just for consistancy, Bronzong for G&G and spreading, and Empoleon just for spreading and big damage. Starters: Bronzor: If you start with this little guy, it's ok! Just evolve to Bronzong asap! And, for no energys at all, you can place one damage counter on each of your opponent's pokemon that already has a damage counter on it. With Bronzong's Poke-Body, you deliver 1 damage counter to each of your opponent's pokemon with any Poke-Powers between turns, thus, making Bronzong able to hit them with it's first attack. Piplulp: This is another great starter. You evolve to Prinplup, and just keep on using Aqua Shower, giving 10 damage to each of your opponent's pokemon. After doing that, if you can, use Brine and possibly KO their important pokemon, Claydol, Ralts, etc. You can also go to Empoleon, Dual Splash the most you can, making it easy to OHKO any pokmeon that they send up. Pachirisu: The most prefered starter. He is a lightning type, thus, a good tech if playing against an Empoleon. And, also good for throwing away their Cessation Crystal cuz there's no Windstorms in this deck. He is also good for, obviously, Call For Family. You get three basics out which is VERY helpfull. Attackers: Empoleon: Very powerfull with Surf Together, allowing you to do damage with a range of 50-100. But at one cost: You flip a coin, if tails, this attack does 10 damage to each of your benched pokemon. Bronzong: Mainly just for the hitting the bench attack and the Poke-Body, but, is very good against fire decks, such as Magmortar and Infernape. Why? 'cause it has a resistance to Fire by -20. This is also good against G&G decks, not used much against G&G decks, but, can be used sometimes. G&G is all weak to psychic, and Bronzong can do 60 for [P][P][C] and resist -20 damage during your opponent's next turn. If Lake Boundary is in play, you can do even more damage. Other: Claydol: Obviously, one of the greatest draw power card ever known in the history of Pokemon! You put 1-2 cards on the bottom of the deck, and draw cards until you have 6 cards in your hand. Trainers: Bebe's Search: Not Celio's Network because Claydol is in the deck. With Bebe's Search, you put one card onto the top of your deck. Thus, allowing you to draw more cards with Claydol's Poke-Power, Cosmic Power. Roseanne's Research: Only two are in here 'cause Pachirisu can grab the rest of your basics needed. I might take these out for 2 Celio's Network if I decide that starting with Pachirisu every game is my best option. Scott: I'm gonna use this awesome card while I can. It's getting rotated out next format. Scott is only used in the deck for getting out my Stadiums. I only have one of each of my Stadiums, so, I can get them out with Scott. At the same time, I can get out my supporters with Scott! It's a bonus!!! :thumb: Team Galactic's Wager: This is the most broken trainer in format. Just for disrupting my opponent's hand, and, if I lose and draw 3, Claydol can help me go back up to 6.
