I have been working with Empoleon most of the season and have tried many versions. Biggest issue I tend to have is hand size. Now that Pachirisu is around playing Cessation with him is not a good thing. As much as I like Palkia I think Claydol is too important for consistency and they do not work together. Here is my list. Pokemon- 19 1- Pachirisu 4-4-4 Empoleon 2-2 Claydol 1-1 Xatu Trainers- 26 2- Night Maintenance 3- Steven's 3- Roseanne's 4- Plus Power 3- Rare Candy 2- Wager 1- Copycat 4- Celio's 2- Windstorm 1- Warp Point 1- Switch Energy- 15 9-Water 3-Dre 3-Scramble Strategy- Go aggressive with Empoleon spreading damage where needed and using Claydol to build the bench. Xatu helps move conditions, snipes and hits G&G for weakness. I find the plus powers really help in this build. The windstorms are mostly for Cessation and Crystal Beach. Good match up with Mag and my games with G&G seem to be about even. Unknown G is the one thing I would like to work in. Any thoughts?
