    Could someone help me find the spoiler for this card?

    I have had a Rhyperior deck since DP was released, its fun to use and gets in some wins (Seeing as it can hold its own pretty well) but I remember reading the spoiler once, and I wa blown away. However I cannot seem to find it now :confused:

    Anyone that can help, thanks in advanced.
    Maybe I will finally be able to take it to tourny play ^^
    Seeing as I dont think he is to hot as of now.

    I love this card alot. It really doesn't contribute to the discard factor that Rhyperior deck's are using right now, but it will definitely give Rhyperior decks an offensive edge as opposed to just discarding

    Thank you for the help ^^

    This like PokePockets has said, will give rhyperior an offensive chance, Without losing a turn. Warp point/switching for another doesn't always happen...

    Cant wait till the day we get it ^^

    i love rhyperior too but i quit playing it when mr. briney's went out (sigh.....)
    the big downer about rhyperior lvl x is that just as we get it, the new kingdra comes out and anything weak to water will be hurting (not to mention how much glaceon lvl x screws rhyperior up).

    it will be some interesting matches to see if rhyperior will be able to get kingdra to deck itself ftw.

    The problem with Rhyperior decks is the prevalent use of claydol. You cannot deck out a deck that has built in reshuffling.

    I agree.

    Once night maint. came out I decided to drop the decking out idea and Claydol makes things tougher. Decking someone out happens now and again, but I find it helpful to have them lose 3-6 cards in a sudden turn (More if you can get it to happen, via SSU or some other methed) and just focuse on gameplay. You may not end up decking out, seeing as im not trying to make people, but you will be losing out on cards.
    Today I went to rhyperior, and evolved another rhydon into one. 6 card loss for my opponent. Seeing as my one had 80 damage i figured, why not, and rolled for SSU, then rare candy back to rhyperior. Its just fun to watch 9 cards go bye bye. Its even better watching 2 magmortars go :biggrin:
    Tho its fun winning against some meta decks, I wouldn't run it in a tourny, not yet at least.

    Anyway like I said, I agree 100% with claydol. Building it around decking your opponent prob. isnt the way to go anymore because of that pokemon.






    O rev... Yea, I was sad it had to be rotated :frown:
    But its going to be fun going up against the giant Kingdra!

    yes you can... drop a rhyperior when they have 3 or less cards and they lose.

    That's why you play absol becuase then they keep drawing a ton of cards which makes them deck out even faster.

    Yeah Kingdra makes this binder candy. You help them discard Water which they can shuffle back into the deck with their first attack (which kills Rhyperior faster than the second attack), and you need to discard 3 energy out of 5 to kill one Kingdra. And Kingdra will most likely be BDIF after Worlds...so I think Rhyperior will be a no go.

    Ryperior LvX Is kind of useless. That Hard Crush Is pretty good If you have discarded at least 3 Energy. But Weakness to Water 2x, Which Empoleon will KO In 1 shot. I would definitely not use Rypherior LvX, But If that's what you want, Go ahead and use It.
