    Which single stadium card is likely to be the best play in a pure water deck (mix of lightning and grass weakness) against the upcoming BR metagame? Lake Boundary is good against Magmortar and Infernape, Glacia's is good against Garchomp, Beedrill, and Leafeon, and Dawn doesn't seem very good at all. If you could only play one, which one would it be? Please explain why you would choose that card, so this doesn't turn into a poll.

    Well, if you're running water, having an edge over Infernape and Magmortar doesn't seem to be
    much of a big deal. It sounds like lots of people are gunna be running Garchomp (its level X
    is evil) and Leafeon, so Dawn's Stadium is out. Glacia's might be the route you wanna go. Of
    course you could always be weird and run Speed Stadium. Sure it'll come back and bite you
    on the bum, but it'd be a hoot.

    Besides the obvious Glacia's, look at the good old standbyes of Crystal Beach (if you aren't relying on specials) or Battle Frontier (especially if Togekiss decks MagKiss / GarchKiss / Skittles) are popular. Agree that unless your running Manaphy Dawns stadium is pretty useless.

    Hm. Not very subtle way of asking what stadium's best for Empoleon/Omastar...
    I'd go with Battle Frontier. Togekiss and Garchomp's abilities are HIGHLY worth blocking. Even if Garchomp can get around Battle Frontier with Restore, it'll stop them from spreading damage with Garchomp LV.X's power, which makes the difference between Empoleon being easy to pick off, or able to take a hit.
    Heck, it'll stop Eevee-lutions from free retreating, though I don't know how useful that is unless you play Palkia or something.

    Dawn stadium is AMAZING if you play Blastoise, not so much if you don't. Something to keep in mind...

    If Garchomp, Skittles, etc are popular in your area, then Battle Frontier is the play. Otherwise Glacia's is pretty much the only other reasonable choice. On the other hand, maybe no stadium is required. Maybe more draw or speed is more important than stadium needs. Hard to say.

    That's true... Crystal Beach isn't... THAT problematic, because usually you'll be able to get 2 energy onto that Empoleon without too much effort. Lake Boundary's a bit scary though if you're planning on having Grass weak pokemon active (...There's... Really nothing from Electric, so Empoleon's kinda safe with Lake Boundary out, whereas we have Torterra/Leafeon/etc. to make Omastars cringe)

    Though this advice is exceptionally relevant to Empoleon/Omastar, my deck contains neither, which is why I left it a little more open-ended. :tongue: In any case, Battle Frontier has the same effect on Garchomp as Glacia's, so the decision there is really based on the relative popularity of Togekiss vs. Leafeon. I guess we'll see what happens this weekend.

    Battle Frontier will also shut down Umbreon, Blastoise d, Delcatty, etc...

    Depending on what deck you're running, you could play BF or Glacia's.

    So what's the deck, Mysterio?
  9. Glacia's will stop Garchomp from killing your guys.

    i would play either battle frontier, crystal beach (i never play special nrgy), or glacia's. if i played glacia's, i would use PK glalie, due to that when glacia's is out, 30 resistence to everything.
