Johnston, Rhode Island Hey i go 2 league here. Well i made my version of Empoleon+Lucario cuz my friends hav been talking about it. I tested it and its pretty solid and consistant. Then my buddy edwin tells me about this Meganium d, Nidoqueen, & Dusknoir deck. He tells me its almost impossible to lose with are meta and its hella fast. He hooks me up wit a list & i decide 2 play it. (I hook up my boy J-Rock wit my Luc+Emp deck which he goes 5-1 and top 4s and misplays in the top 4 match FTL. IDC jon dat waz impressive!) R1 Dave Cox - Spalsh Well I get a slow start. All ik is if i get meganium early its over. I dont see it till t10+. By then hes got a prize lead of 3/4 and the round has 10 minutes left. So even though i was getting going. He wins on time. 0-1 R2 _____- Charizard/Gyrados I t4 em with nidoqueen mt on his charmeleon d + Gyrados d . 1-1 R3 Adam Tuttle - MegaGator We both get horrible setups. 10 turns later from chikorita stall and all my pokemon setup wit energys. I get 1st strike and dusknoir shuffles his only pokemon that hes getting going and i run threw everything from there. 2-1 R4 _____ - Tune She misses the t2 grass energy on tune. I get meganiums + nidoqueens going. Its over 3-1 R5 Patty Lawson - Blissey/Vire I faced her last week and lost with bascially an auto win matchup and it turns into ****0 both games. I had 3 dre, 1 chikorita,1 meganium, 1 duskell, 1 pyschic, 1 warp point. I couldnt draw candy to save my life which was all i needed. 3-2 R6 Con Lee - Empoleon Spalsh He struggles early on to setup. I pull meganium out t5 reducing 30-60 and its downhill from there. He also missed a t2 mantine 50 energy drop early game. 4-2 Milford, MA Well I wanted to play Empoleon+Lucario yesterday so I figured i'd play it today. J-Rock was also gonna play it. I get picked up around 8:50. We get to MA and I mooch off michelle for sum french toast sticks & a egg,cheese,sausage crossiant from BK. We get to tha card place. Me, jon, and alex figured tjs would have a 360 system in the store. So we brung HALO 3 + Controllers. Which we played and I rocked both of em 10 minutes till tourney me and jon had a fun game in a mirror match which i won. R1 Michelle Rock - Lighting Strikez She gets going early on. Im struggling to setup but i turn it into a game and a huge comeback. It was her 2 prizes at the end and me with 1. Times called. She cant follow up wit a ko so I win on prizes. (The hugest play in that game was me absolin her quaza d ex to finally gain the lead) Michelle why r u so good against me? 1-0 R2 Brian Jessing - Salamence ex, Swampert ex, Delcatty He starts with two chinglingsz. I start with piplup and next turn start showerin everywhere. I had 2 priplups out and 2 empoleons out and all my spreading made him able to get nuttin going. I koed shelgon with 2 energy on it. He dropped bagons down and i one shotted ea. of them cuz he had no candy. So i basicially just picked spots the whole game and set picks for a 6-0 prize win game. 2-0 R3 John Rock - Empoleon + Lucario Before the round we were joking around how we would face ea. other in this round. Whadda uk, MIRROR MATCH! He hits te lucario lvx 1st and after that i struggle to get back in the game. We both have lucarios, priplups and empoleons goin he just has better setup and pancakes me. 2-1 R4 Steven Jessing - Magnezone He has lone magnemite with 3 metals on it before i win. I had 2 priplups on the bench with empoleon + scramble handed b4 lucario koed em. 3-1 R5 Nick Krupa - Turbo Blissey He starts with blissey i start with riolu and flip tails. Next turn lucario and 60. He does 3 potions. I and he eventually get setup. We both had 5 prizes left. I have 1 card in my hand. I attached multi and put my thumb on it. He claims i took my hand/finger off it. So the judges + pto got involved. The pto ruled that he doesnt see me ever do that so he thinks im lieing and forces me to attach that energy to that pokemon. I ALWAYS DO THAT. Anyway we got a 4 minute time extension and times called and i beat the cheatin flunkie 3-4 on prizes. Go play WOW & dont come bak. 4-1 R6 Con Lee - Ape I faced him round 6 the day before . I start with piplup he starts with tauros. While hes getting bench i got 3 priplups and soon to be empoleons going. I hit a wage win w/ cess in play. So i locked it for 5/6 turns. I also brined 2 chimchars early to give him a almost no chance comeback. I also did aqua shower twice and his delcatty had 3 on it for sum reason which i didnt notice till i saw it and attacked it with ice blade. I draw a prize & he then says how did he get 3 on him? Meanwhile i get a warning becuz i drew a prize wen i wasnt supposed to but i mean the pokemon had 3 on it i didnt know. The prize that i drew i had to get during my next prize draw. I eventually had 3 priplup/empoleons rdy powered up + 1 lucario and it was over from there 5-1 Top 4 Andrew Cox - Mario G1- my riolu vs. his machop. Im 1st and Kick = Tails. He does RC+machamp then the judges come over and take everyones decks. Meanwhile hes got god start and theyre doing a deckcheck. Srry G1 REPEAT- We both get setup but he hits lucario LvX and its over from there. I scoop with a little under 30 minutes left in the round 0-1 G2- Im 1st and I got a decent start to his ok start. I get things going and hes drawing dead. 2 empoleons were too much for him to take down. I spread ftw 1-1 G3 - 10 minutes left and im pretty sure this is going to SD. He gets first prize and I get the 2nd with lucarios feint. Hes got horrible setup and I got priplups, empoleon, 2 lucarios out so id be wicked angry if i lost to time. Times called on my turn. I have a scramble + fighting on lucario and i say auro sphere forggeting were tied in prizes. The judge rules I must do feint becuz "i declared an attk and if i cant do the attk it goes down to the next available attk if any" I personally think it doesnt make any sense becuz if u have 1 attk on a pokemon and he cant do it. Whats the logic for it? Anyway even after hes living with 10 dmg. He cant return a ko which i do the turn after his turn. 2-1 FINALZ Tiffany _____ - MagmortorCatty G1- Shes got magby vs. my riolu start. I do castaway + Charm + Wild Kick + Heads = KO T1 1-0 G2- Piplup vs. Magmar. I do 40 for 0 energy(peck+charm+20 weak) while i power up piplup bench. I eventually get 2 empoleons + 1 priplup going and just ko everything she has. 2-0 ABOUT TIME!!!!! PROPZ Finally winning after a bumpy start. Duncan for making the finals.
