DP-On: http://pokegym.net/forums/showthread.php?t=74596 After the rotation of a number of key cards like DRE/Scramble, Celio/Stevens etc are all gone and will change the format quite alot. G&G will deteriorate alot due to the loss of DRE. Garchomp I feel will probably be the next BDIF due to DRE/Scramble going out, crystal shard and battle frontier are gone. 110 for 3 energy, but set up may be it's downfall, Garchomp/Claydol/Togekiss? Magmortar will do much better (although suffer slightly from the loss of Scramble) but if run with Togekiss that shouldn't be a problem. Empoleon MD? Does it need scramble that much? I dunno. T2 Chatot retreat for Empo MD 2 energies spread 30dmg to 2 pokemon would be amazing, adding Omastar only makes it more devastating. Will it mean Magmortar dies a horrible death? Lots of decks abusing great starters, Pachi, Phione, Absol and i think with a free setup attack and free retreat Chatot will be massive. Although the new Jirachi will be just as good. Leafeon lvl x + ??? - no doubt that without DRE/Sramble, energy acceleration will be much more usefull. But what to run it with? Sceppy? Eveelutions? Glaceon lvl.x + ??? - Stopping Claydol / Togekiss / Omastar will be huge. Fossils, T2 Kabutops? Without DRE you wont be attacking, but by T3 you'll be stopping rare candies and spreading like wildfire (aslong as you can spread to the bench with Zapdos) or maybe Garchomp lvl.x (spreads damage to bench with power) then restore on a Kabutops and go crazy. Weakness to Leafeon won't help though. Aerodactyl to stop Claydol? Omastar to devolve after damage spread? Claydol will be probably the most used card for set up in nearly all decks. Will more bench space be needed this format? As a dusknoir tech may become even more deadly. Will the format go back to how it was not long ago with Stage 1 decks dominating: Lucario / Blissey / Krikky / Bannette? Or the new Froslass? Thoughts / views?
