    My Problems:

    Empleon Match Up:
    My main problem is some how the lock gets broken and they omastar then snipe the duskull. Late game i get down to one or two prized and then they make huge comebacks with scrambles and surf together then I lose. I have only won once verses Empo so please help here.

    Magmortar/Blazeken/Claydol Match Up:
    Petty much the same thing happens here. I get really close to winning by one or two prizes left then they scramble and wreck me.

    Im thinking about teching in a Dugtrio to stop the spread and snipage or crystal beach to stop scrambles but i really dont want to because it takes down the consitancy

    no to Crystal beach, hurts you too much

    Try 2 Phione and drop 1 psychic energy and 1 rare candy for more consistent starts and build ups.

    Dugtrio would seem to get in the way, but if you include it drop 2 TGW

    Good luck

    I don't think you need Professor Oaks Visit. You have Claydol, so you should max out Steven's, especially when the two decks you are having trouble against are set-up decks with large benches.

    Other than that, I don't really have anything to add.

    Good luck.

    in my opinion, to many energy. Maybe take some out for a tech or somthing. I play empoleon right now and omastar tech/wager really hurts me.

    wouldnt the omastar and dusknoir be too much strain on the rare candys??

    Not that ive found, also maybe use phione as a starter.

    Using both Dusknoir and Omastar does tend to clog up the bench, though. Since he's playing 3 Kirlia, he does have enough Candy available for two 1-0-1 tech lines, though. This is a solid, if vanilla, list for Plox. The only things I don't really like with it are the energy count and the use of Prof. Oak's Visit. No stadiums or Windstorm could also come back to haunt you.

    Try -3 POV +2 Windstorm +1 Stadium (Lake Boundary or Battle Frontier) or +1 Str. Charm/Plus Power

    You can afford to drop 2 energy or switch 2 for Cyclone if you like the energy count you have.

    ALWAYS USE FURRET in Gardy Gallade decks!!!

    Why? It makes it 2 turns slower. I say Claydol or Furret, but NEVER both.

    You have 16 Supporters, which I think is a bit much. And as a solution to your snipping Duskull problem, you could either run x1 Dusclops for more HP or take out a few supporters and put in a Bastiodon line like 1-1-1.

    Furrett is obsolete now that Claydol is around. While it doesn't search for specific cards like Furrett, it does cycle through the deck incredibly fast, and it does so without using an attack. Claydol also is not bothered by Team Galactic's Wager (they work together actually), while Furrett wastes a entire turn if they Wager after you Keen Eye.
