    I have been thinking of a Great ROGUE deck to make with Empoleon and something out of the NEW set, I think I have found it!!! Empoleon is a GREAT pokemon, and one of MY favorites. A few of the Eeveeloutions do GREAT Damage Spread, and Glaceon came to mind. So WHY NOT make a Nice Rogue deck out of them??? I really cant find a good name, I stink on Deck Names!!! I wanted to build a deck with a NEW idea and Pokemon, so here it is:

    22 Pokemon:

    4 Empoleon DP5
    2 Prinplup DP
    4 Piplup DP

    3 Eevee Dp5
    2 Glaceon Dp5
    2 Glaceon Lv. X Dp5
    1 Vaporeon DP5

    2 Baltoy
    2 Claydol

    21 Trainers/Supporters/Stadiums/Tools:

    4 Bebes Search
    4 Roseannes Research
    2 Island Hermit* ( In case I get something good Prized, of course)
    2 Stevens Advice
    1 Copycat
    1 Scott
    4 Rare Candy
    2 Night Mainteance
    1 Galacia's Stadium

    17 Energy:
    3 Scramble
    4 Holon WP
    10 :water:

    You want to Start with Eevee OR Piplup either way is okay, BUT a Eevee start is MORE welcomed. Spread Damage with the Evolutions of Piplup, WHILE building Glaceon and the other Eevees on the bench. Bring up Glaceon, and Spread Damge WHILE SHUTTING DOWN Poke-Powers!!! Vaporeon is good for Healing YOUR bench, if Empoleon DP5 damages it with Group Surf. Claydol is here for Consistancy!!! All and All, I think this will be a Great deck!!! I think this can do WELL along with MAYBE a few changes. Let me know what you think, and if I CAME UP with a Good idea. THANKS for your Help and Comments!!!:thumb:

    Empoleon LV X?

    More than likely after Battle Roads, Empoleon will be archetype. But good luck becoming a beautiful and unique snowflake.

    Theres better options to run with empoleon when the new set comes out IMO, koygre, and much more.. I would just wait and see what the set brings us.

    I doubt Empoleon will be a Archetype, ANYWAYS I have been Runnng Empo since I started playing, and have used him in LOTS of decks. He wasnt a Archetype when he came out, why would it take so long for it to happen NOW??? Thanks, CharChar, you NEVER know, lol. Besides I use it to Counter Stadium Crystal Beach!!!

    actually, charchar, i ran into quite a few electravire decks at the last regional i went to. they're still active but not as much as a threat as GG

    the new empoleon gives empoleon so many more options.
    its alot more playable than it was before.

    hey hey hey...Glacia's Stadium is for Pachy, not Electivire.
    And you could also replace Umbreon for Mantine/Mantyke.

    If I'm thinking of about how playable Empoleon is when MD hits, then I'm thinking it's on a lot of people's minds.

    I do like the deck idea though. Eeveelutions will be huge come BRs and with two evolutions being :water:, Empoleon would be a good Marvel Team-Up.

    uhhh sorry to wreck your bubble.... It was a archetype when it came out. have a look at the Worlds 07 winners and stuff. Empoleon was the deck.

    -1 lake boundry
    -1 Galacia's Stadium

    +2 Warp points

    I was actually thinking of a deck like this when DP5 comes out. I think empoleon will be back near the top come battle roads

    I made a FEW changes to the Deck list, let me KNOW what you think! I might change the Island Hermits, for some POVs OR Steven's. Yes, Empoleon WAS played A LOT when it came out, BUT was NOT considered an Archetype, BUT I have been playing him since December when I started playing( When he was LESS played or considered DEAD). I NEVER gave up on playing him, and NEVER will. I just thought I have found a GREAT combo with him!!!

    Dude, that's the DEFINITION of a archetype. a deck that sees "A LOT" of play.

    Anyway, it looks pretty solid, and should hurt mag a bit. I don't think it will drive Mag extinct, though.

    HAHAHA, yeah its true, lol!!!
    Thanks, Buddy, I got to keep Empo running strong!!!
  18. Flygon999

    Flygon999 New Member

    Use 2 Premier Ball and 1 Empoleon Lv.X
  19. mca3

    mca3 New Member

    The EMPO X idea is GOOD, but, that Level UP would slow the deck down!!!

    the NEW empoleon definately isnt rogue. You should try and add claydol to your deck
