What decks do you guys think will be the most popular at LCQs/Worlds?
oh and did I mention GG?
60% PLOX - Need I say more? Psychic Lock + Wager = WIN.
15% Empoleon Varients - Second big deck, but many people switched over to PLOX or Eeveelutions after both of those decks won Nats...
15% Eeveelutions Varients - Won Nats in Seniors, and has Eevee in it.
5% Torterra - Got a pretty big fan base after it took 3rd at Nats.
5% Rogue/SD - Can't disclude Rogues or SDs...
i rekon you're about right
BanCario, Ban Bliss might also be seen.
BanBliss maybe, but BanCario...eww.
Anyway, yeah, GG/Plox because it will win and that's all people want to play.
I am going to way
10% Empoleon Variants
10% Torterra (like Arceus said, got a pretty big fan base)
5% Eeveelutons Variants (Eeveelutions, Glaceon Power Lock, MagLeaf)
5% SD's/red face paint
Top 16 at Nats (MA) was half 13/16 GG/Emp (8 GG, 5 Emp). I'd say those ratios should be similar here. 50% GG, 30% Emp, 20% everything else.
for top 4 for all, out of 12, there is gonna be at least 8 ploxs 2 empoleon or three and some EVIL SUPER SECRET JAPANESE DECK THAT WILL WIN!!!,,,,, soo... yah, OBVIOUSLY plox/gg/empoleon most popular, and some otehr decks like torterra, banbliss eevees are a sort-of-popular decks...
I like how everyone is relying on this "secret Japanese deck" that they think will show up, but I doubt it, considering GG won in 2 age divisiions in that Japanese tournament that was Int'l format, and everyone said the same thing about US Nats.
No knight in shining armor will save this format.
Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:
Wasn't there already a thread about this in the Worlds discussion?
LOL yeah, I also will not expect such a deck there...
I'm intrested tough, I think G&G with some nasty ex'es will thake the spot. However a Rhyperior/Absol stall and discard deck also might do the trick if the G&G only has 2 Night maintanence...
We'll just have to wait
Psychic Lock stops Earth Fissure. End of story (hate to bash down decks, but I really don't want some random guy reading this to get any ideas...). =P
I think that a random SD will most likely not emerge because no one wants to take chances. There are a lot of good players (Magnechu, DarkTwins) who used PLox as their main deck all season, hate it, but don't want to take chances.
I would say the only SD that has a shot against it is whatever Colin runs, considering he always does the trick
Pshhh. Drew used Banette for States and won. But I do agree with what youre saying overall.
Well, that is states, this is Worlds, your last shot.
i played GG since cities,,,,, i hated gg so i said, ima play something else so i played inferncatty at nats... it has no prob beating GG/PLOX since it went X-0 aginst gardy gallade but i always lost by getting donked or when i battle empoleon and they get a good setup but yah, i get what u mean....
Super Stantler v2 is gonna win
bannette is good. but banbliss and bancario are just pure sludge.
i think empy will be the big one to watch.
LOL Super Stantler.
I think we will see a wicked awesome Empoleon rise up and do really well.... intill PLOX/GG Kill it
i know what you wrote was a bit laid back, but the sad thing is, its true
unless someone works the real and best way of running bannette, gardy will just... win.
