    What is a good amount of Empoleon DP/MD and Lv. X for an Empoleon Omastar deck with Phione/call energy.

    EmpoStar with Phione huh?

    Well, personally i like this structure:
    2 Empoleon MD
    1 Empoleon DP
    1 Empoleon Lv.X

    but many will disagree with that

    4 Piplup DP
    3 Prinplup DP
    3 Empoleon MD
    1 Empoleon Lv.X

    2 Phione

    2 Helix fossil
    1 Omanyte
    2 Omastar
    2 Fossil Excavator

    2 - 2 Claydol

    This has been my most solid Empo-star line up.

    Hmm... I'd go with...

    4 Piplup DP
    1 Prinplup DP
    1 Prinplup MD - in case you end up with just DRE in your hand with this.
    2 Empoleon MD
    1 Empoleon DP
    1 Empoleon LV.X

    i go this route

    4 piplup DP
    3 prinplup DP
    3 empoleon MD
    1 empoleon DP

    3 helix fossil MD
    2 omanyte MD
    2 omastar MD
    1 omastar PK

    i feel empoleon lv x has very limited uses as the damage spreading ability of the MD empoleon far surpasses the DP and lv x one. hand control is nice but the attack isnt good enough to take the place of another regular empoleon. the DP is in there as a tech, mainly for aqua jet as i wont risk damaging my bench plus the possible 20 damage is nice (rarely use this however).

    i like this thick omastar line because 1)it increases my chances of drawing a basic 2)it decreases the chances of omanyte being prized when a attach a water energy to helix fossil (used to run 2-1-2 and i hated having a prized omanyte) and 3)omastar PK (tech that i use more often than the omastar MD oddly enough) is extremely flexible. pull down for one colorless energy (works extremely well with call energy) seems almost unfair. plus if i need to hit hard i can drop a scramble on him for 70 in extremely (EXTREMELY) desperate situations.

    I think that the best would be:

    4 Piplup DP
    2 Prinplup DP
    3 Empoleon MD
    1 Empoleon Lv.X

    You could play 1 empoleon DP if you think you need that extra 10 damage from his first attack, but i personally prefere the MD empo.
    Empo lv.X it a really nice sniper. He could kill your opponent's claydol and earn you your last prize.

    For omastar i'd go like this:

    2 Helix(if you could afford to play 3 it would be better, but space is a bit tight sometimes)
    2 Omanayte
    2 Omastar MD
    1 Omastar PK

    Playing a fossic excavator could help in getting that Helix fossil, but it's not necessary)

    and playing 3 SSU could be really helpful.

    And then for phione:

    3 Phione
    3 Call
    3 Roseanne's

    i don't like playing 4 call since you won't need it after the first few turns.

    That is a basic idea of how to play empoleon.

    I have to say, 3 Empoleon MD, 1 Empo Lv. X, 3 Prinplup Dp, and 4 Piplup Dp,No Question! That is the Best line I have experimented with!
