i decide to play garchomp/weavile/claydol since it does a billion a turn and i tested it a few games. it beats plox and mag and banette easily so i figure i should be fine. round 1 - alex hill - plox wow. again i play alex round 1. anyways, t3 he benches LATI-LOCK which is a DIRECT COUNTER to my deck. REAL MATURE. i still won though so w/e. 1-0 round 2 - i forget sorry - plox/garchomp counter she gets like a t2 gallade ko'ing stuff but i eventually out set her up and get out 3 garchomps with psychics. she drew passed for like 3 turns after she got the gallade ko, but it's kind of irrelevant since she had everything already anyways. 2-0 round 3 - some dude i forget you're name! - empoleon/mismagius(resistant to colorless) this was a pretty good game. i always got the ohko when i needed it (which is what my deck does) but he got a lot of damage on my guys making it a close game. luckily i'm able to ohko his mismagius in the end for the last prize. good game! 3-0 round 4 - dave christian (nooo!!!) - EXPLOUD (colorless) ughhh exploud!? and my fighting energy is prized?!?!? GREAT! we make it somewhat of a game but he had the upper hand the whole time. great game dave and NICE FLIPS! but seriously, it's always fun playing you (more fun when i win) and i wish you woulda made top cut! 3-1 round 5 - robert ector - banette/battle frontier(garchomp counter) lololol my guy had 130 hp, can turn dark, and does 110+ a turn. he didn't have much of a chance. i still took like 2 prizes with sneasels and pachirisu just for fun. sorry ector!! 4-1 round 6 - gino rotondo - plox with BRELOOM. what luck. i play against every garchomp counter in the tournament even though no one's played garchomp all year. breloom does 120 to a garchomp for a scramble IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW. and i only played 1 fire which i could never get. i also never saw a 2nd gible, or sneasel, or anything... so yea. 4-2 round 7 - eric craig - furret(WOW), FARFETCHED(60 TO GARCHOMP FOR 1), and plox he gets t2 gardy but cant copy anything. i also get a good set up. his furret is RIDICULOUS and does a BILLION a turn to garchomp and has a BILLION hp (fighting energy prized again LOL) but i still manage to win since he thinks i cant ohko the 130 hp swampert, which i did. 5-2 so i make t16 in 7th and have to play against some guy playing ape, so i figured i'd get donked. t16 vs. jorge ramirez - ape/delcatty(great)/FARFETCH'D(WOW) how lucky can i be. game 1 - i set up and easily win game 2 - i get no set up and he get dre every turn along with t1 ape t2 ape lv x. game 3 - i get a t3 garchomp and take 3 prizes with it, but i cant get any basics even after 2 dusk balls and a steven's for 6. just my luck. so that's how i didn't win regionals. i hate this format. everything is 2hko vs ohko vs plox and every deck is pretty much the same. last year was amazing. this format is horrible. i hope majestic dawn will make things better because pokemon is terrible right now. props: me alex eric bianchi gino omar garchomp slops: literally all of my opponent's having some sort of tech that was a direct garchomp counter. luck, as always. this format. pokemon. everyone. farfetch'd jorge not getting to play.
