    I was wondering if anyone is using Kabutops EX in their decks. It seems to me that it would deal a lot of damage, especially to Blaziken. Are their any huge disadvantages to building a deck around it?

    Kabutops EX is good in some decks, but he's too risky with losing your Buried and Mysterious Fossil's. If you can set up the trainers right he can be great.

    Kabutops Primary Weakness is Grass ( You'll see why ) If you plan on using it, I recommend play Kabutops From Skyridge as well with it. for 3 Energy you'll get 2 flips to deal 50 for each flip. that's a 1 hit Ko For Those magnetons and Delcatty out there. BUt there's a Problem. Grass is your main Weakness because Both of the Tops are weak to it. Sol watch out for Sceptile ( And the most dreaded Sceptile EX when it comes out )

    Please post the decks! I was trying to find a way to work it with Sceptile, but I just don't have enough cards. I get all of my daughter's leftovers :mad: and have trouble putting a good deck together. Lack of trainers seems to be the biggest problem, so when I saw the Kabutops I thought it looked pretty good.

    I play him comboed with Omastar (and probably the skyridge Kabutops soon) and i've no problem setting either of them up. And he can take on Gardy with relative ease aswell - or atleast put up a big fight.

    Just have Delcatty on the bench bringing out the Boost's to just clean house.

    Delcatty/Kabutops EX wow never would have thought of that. Sounds like it would work I just might try it. But by far in my opinion the Beedrill/Kabutops EX is the best and fast!!!

    Furrett would guarantee you the Boost Energies.

    Oracle/Delcatty would guarantee more than just the Boost's, Dad. :D

    An underpowered ex that relies on flips. That is its disadvantage.
