    Hello all. I am playing this deck at NATS and need some feedback, here is the list:

    POKEMON

    3 Piplup (2 DP, 1 MD)
    3 Prinplp (1 DP, 2 MD)
    3 Empoleon (MD)
    3 Magikarp
    3 Gyarados
    2 Baltoy
    2 Claydol
    2 phione (evo wish)
    1 Unknown P


    TRAINERS

    4 Masterball
    2 quickball
    2 great ball
    2 night maintenance

    SUPPORTERS

    3 celio
    1 bebe
    2 roseanne
    1 TVR (tv reporter)
    2 POV
    1 Stevens advice
    2 Copy Cat
    1 Felicitys drawing

    ENERGY

    12 water
    3 call


    Strategy: Hopefully get phione on first turn and try to get out empoleon as quickly as possible. Once out, snipe bench. If i happen to use surf together, it will damage my bench, powering gyarados. But, if it is not tails, i have unknown P to damage gyarados. Claydol keeps cards in my hand. So the deck revolves mainly around empoleon, and gyarados is a 2ndary attacker. This deck is tested at 8-2, placing 2nd to the same deck at BR.



    Cards to add: i think i should add a craudaunt ex to be like dusknoir and get rid of opponents bench, but what would i switch it for. I also want to add dugtrio CG so other empo decks can't snipe.
    THOSE 4 CARDS, WHAT DO I TAKE OUT FOR THEM!!!!

    3 Gyarados is too many, and risks Magikarp starts. Using Master Ball etc is risky in a deck with a lot of different Pokemon: you won't always get what you want. What you DO want, though, is Rare Candy.

    -1 Magikarp
    -1 Gyarados
    -4 Master Ball
    -2 Quick Ball
    -2 Great Ball
    -1 Felicity
    -2 Water

    +1 Piplup
    +1 Empoleon MD/DP/LV X (your choice)
    +1 Phione
    +3 Rare Candy
    +2 Roseanne
    +2 Steven
    +1 Call
    +2 Scramble

    That would be a whole different deck. You would need to find room for 3-4 TGW.

    Besides, Omastar MD is so much better. Why not devolve and KO their benched Pokemon after you spread damage, instead of just sending them back to the hand?

    I know a really good empoleon deck that you didn't even think about yet. It is only for this format.
    Its really quick and it makes fast knockouts :thumb:
