Vaporeon, Gyrados, and Glacion probably are the best pokemanz to use with Empoleon MD.
new emp's 1st attack does 20 more total damage than old emp's 1st attack. new emp's 2nd attack does 30 more damage than old emp's 2nd attack. yeah you might damage your bench, but thats a risk worth taking to do 30 more. i dont get why you would run both emps. the new emp is waaaay better in every way.
So if it's only useful early on (damage spread), or otherwise it'll have to be useful mid game as well as late game...
Doesn't that mean it's always good? I don't... Think we're missing anything here, other then the obvious energy crisis (which is solveable) and that it's a stage 2 (balanced out by its... slightly above average HP, as well as okay pre-evolutions)
There are enough cards in the game that allow you to have a well built up bench at all times (even if the bench is made up of random junk like Pachirisu and Rotom), making the qualifier on Empoleon's Group Surf not as problematic.
...I think the DP one is just better than the MD one (for reasons that were mentioned above....)
I dont like empoleon md or dp,dp1 cards make my head hurt.>.< and thinking of the new ones which are ok,dosent help the migranes.
i think the thing which makes empoleon md a safe play will be the dawn stadium
Empoleon is a bad card compared to the rest of MD, and wont see much play. It just doesnt combo with anything.
Oh well, We all have our OWN ways of running our OWN decks. So I mean if I choose to run him like so, then I will, BUT you all made valid points, but I might switch him out alittle, until I have found the right choice for me. You Cant pass up the DP one at all, I mean even as a 3/1 tech to the DP5 one, he still should be used. He is Very consistant, and is still VERY playable. I mean I MIGHT eventually switch from 2/2 to some other set-up, but I mean its all just Test Play until Nats, even BR, am I right???
I think mca3 can play empoleon and do well with it honestly.
youll be surprised......
I beat you too Alex, you better be counting that
1 loss to you and 1 loss to brian
No, trust me, I won't.
Empoleon is the 3rd best card in MD, next to Call Energy and Phione. Quote me on it!
(Unless Kingdra sneaks in there, then we're all effed)
^Lol @ Mr. Hurricane, or Mr. Skittles-Is-Bad. Gallade and Gardevoir don't combo with anything and it's BDIF.
Gardy and Gallade combo with each other.
Empoleon comboes with itself.
It'd be interesting to see a water deck do well. They haven't really done well ever.
^^Are you kidding? NG Gatr and Rain Dance are two of the most broken decks of all time!
...I wasn't the only person who liked Riptide Feraligatr(Neo Genesis)... :[
