    Now that DialgaChomp loses Claydol, along with Unown G , how badly do you think DialgaChomp will be hurt? No more deck cycling for Special metals either. What are your opinions on how well this deck will do next format?

    The deck will do well.

    1. Every other deck loses Claydol too. DialgaChomp is so lucky to get what it needs with supporters (Interviewer's question).
    2. Huge bodies are arriving. Vileplume, Gengar Prime and Mew Prime are prime examples of the things that will be ultimately suffering in front of Dialga G Lv.X (although Gengar may have an out with Gengar Lv.X).
    3. The deck should be able to fit in Skuntank + Toxicroak G against Machamp. The psychic energy is already played there, so charging Toxi won't be a problem. Stadiums go well with Deafen and might give outs to some matchups (Galactic's HQ against evolution decks, Conductive Quarry provides an energy supply).

    I'll be sure to play it next season, as it doesn't really carry any fatal autolosses.

    The only thing the deck loses is 1-1 Claydol, so yes, the deck will still be, if not more of a threat next season.

    ITs still going to be played like the other SPs will, they will just add 2-1 Toxitank to counter Machamp.

    Mew Prime? I didn't think any one was actually going to use that card.

    Regardless, I think SP's in general are going to do well next season, including DialgaChomp.

    Yep, SP's will still be around next season. They will still dominate, sadly.

    Unless Machamp actually does well, but I'm still skepticle about that one :nonono:

    And it will fit in Palkia/Dialga Legend nicely, moving metal energy onto the card with Bronzong so it can do the attack twice in 2 turns before getting KOd, adding +4 to the opponent's prizes while giving up 2.

    I wasn't aware that people were already using this combo. On topic, I think Dialga is better without claydol to get T1 Deafen more often. I think it is the play for BR's at least.

    Throwing out some counter cards for the mix:
    Scizor Prime,
    The Lunarsoul tech (Lunatone SV Solrock CS),
    Rapidash AR with Wild Guard and Ponyta with acension,
    and, cards that would snipe Dialga G lvX,

    ^I can't exactly tell what you are trying to say there.. You know those are all PokeBodies, right?

    I'm just listing some cards that may be on some peoples minds. also throwing in the upcoming Umbreon (unduanted I believe).
    And yes, I do know that, but If someone really wants it to work, they will thow some cards in to get Dialga G off their back. For example, Gengar LvX might be used with the Lunasoul tech. Flygon LvX might be teamed up with Flygon LvX to do serious LvX snipe.

    That new energy exchange unit trainer looks like a great way to get special metals, so I think with that the deck can survive without claydol.

    Umbreon UD is an interesting tech against DialgaChomp. Does it run ANYTHING other than the base Dialga G that doesn't have a Pokepower or Pokebody? Because Umbreon shuts it down completely if no.

    (For those who don't know)

    Umbreon - Darkness - HP 90
    Stage 1 - Evolves from Eevee

    [D] Moonlight Fang: 30 damage. Prevent all effects of attacks, including damage, done to this Pokemon by your opponent’s Pokemon with any Poke-Powers or Poke-Bodies during your opponent’s next turn.
    [D][C] Quick Attack: 30 damage. Flip a coin, if heads this attack does an additional 30 damage.

    Weakness: Fighting (x2)
    Resistance: Psychic (-20)
    Retreat: 1

    It wont be hard to just kill umbreon with a dialga G or even garchomp c

    promocroak has its way with umbreon though

    The base Dialga is enough. You can deafen with an Expert belt while using skuntank to knock it out and preventing the opponent from using trainers.

    Exactly. I don't see why it doesn't do well. The strategy is good, the card is great.
