Hello Pokegymmers I wonder if anyone could give me any good advice on the GG mirror match. It seems like before GE and Claydol's release, Psychic Lock + Wager was a significant and strong combo, but not the main strategy in GG, while now the sole purpose of the deck seems to have become to get an active Gardevoir ASAP and start Wagering and Psychic Locking away. As far as I understand, the pre-GE mirror strategy, or the City mirror strategy if you like, was to force the opponent into taking the first prize by Sonic Blading instead of Psychic Cutting until your opponent has to KO you and give you the chance to Scramble. Now that your opponent is likely to build up a Gardevoir as soon as possible and start hammering away, has the focus changed? Should you no longer try to get the chance to Scramble at all cost, and instead try to outspeed him/her and be the first one to start a Psychic Lock chain? What if your early Psychic Locks knock out something silly, like a Furret, and your opponent answers with his/her own Gardevoir with a Scramble? I don't see how you could recover from that, being denied Scramble yourself for two prizes and being hit by weakness. :S I'm a bit helpless here and need advice from the pros who've been out there in the State Championship battlefield.
