    So, i got called out last week at BR's, so this week im going to experiment with actualy playing an archtype, as opposed to my current rogue (Ferlaigtr d Flygon d Deoxys d). So, heres me attempt!

    3-2-3-1 Empoleon LvX (MD Empoleon)
    2-2 Palkia LvX
    2-2 Mantine
    2-2 Claydol

    Rare Candy x3
    Celios Network x4
    Premier Ball x3
    Quick Ball x4
    Night Maintaince x2
    Rosannes Research x4
    Switch x2
    Dawns Stadium x2

    Water x11
    Scramble x2
    Call x2
    15 N-Er-G's

    Empoleon to slap people around, Palkia to switch my opponents active while free retreating with Mantine, Switch incase people are smart and pull my Claydol active... yeah... pretty basic...

    You might consider 1 Skarmory EX for added irritation! Restructure, bring out a heavy wiht minimal energy and then Dual Splash. If they retreat they take 3 which helps with the spread!

    Have Fun!!

    ^not a neat strategy if they pull out Skarmory ex,,

    Claydol should not be played in here, it ruins your strategy.

    Skar is a one retreat cost os not that big of an issue... with the free retreat of everyone else, energy placement for Skar is ok to retreat!

    i think that mismagius should be played with the now empoleon. empoleo places damage counters on your pokemon, and that's good for mismagius.

    Yes, unfortunately you cannot run Claydol with Empalkia. Your opponent will bring in Claydol with restructure and then you won't be able to retreat him with Mantine. You could always put him in forcing your opponent to put in another Pokemon, in which case they will choose Palkia Lv.X which has a retreat cost of 3 :(.

    IMO you would be much better off with a few Amulet coins and Steven's Advice.

    This deck is not, has not, and will never be an archtype. Palkia LV:X is just too... bleh (for lack of a better word). The deck needs more Omastar.

    palkia lvl x is broken i'll pm the OPer with what tech makes it broken because it's too nasty for the eyes of the gym

    If it's Unown Q, then I'm either going to laugh, cry, or vomit. Probably all 3 at once.

    Yeah, it was Unown Q >.<

    That's a bit negative don't you think?

    Unown Q + Mantine gives Palkia Lv.X free retreat, allowing you to essentially switch one of your opponent's Pokemon once during your turn?
