    What are your opinions to combine with the new Kingdra from Legends Awakened?

    Alakazam, felicity's drawing, any thing that discards a lot. preferably with a power.

    registeel, if i read his pokepower right its 2 discard instead of lunatone's 1.

    I'm thinking for pokemon:

    4-2-4 kingdra
    1-0-1 Alakazam
    3 registeel/lunatone
    2 pachi
    2 phione

    I dunno though, looks like a gewd deck imo

    Isn't it obvious? Kingdra's attack diminishes the amount of cards in hand so you end up drawing more cards with Claydol.

    Kingdra Claydol Dusknoir/Alakazam will probably be common since its simple to setup and either Kazam can kill powers which helps alot or Dusknoir can palm everything thats a threat.

    I dunno bout Kazam it just seems really hard to give up 4 out of the 6 cards in your hand even if you get to draw em back next turn.
    Dusk is good though, but only as a tech line I think.
    Kingdras an all around beast though, and it should prove to dominate BRs if I would guess.
    I just hope and pray that AMU and Kingdra don't become the GG and Magmortar/Empoleon of next season

    I dont think AMU will be as popular as GG and Mag bescause Mewtwo Lv. X will just smash them.

    AMU wont be that bgi because its gonna be so expensive,and people dont know what to do in matchups. How can it be so good without knowing all the decks that are gonna be played. If anything it mite just a fun deck or the next Lunarock.

    This may be true.
    BUT, price will not be the determiner of whether a deck is good or not, EVER.
    LBS, Speed Spread, Mewtrick, and the Holon Engine were prime examples.

    A $50 trainer engine used in nearly EVERY competitive deck. Sure people didn't like the prices, but Pokemon players everywhere found a way to get their hands on those 4 Transcievers.

    The same goes for Mew ex and Lugia ex and Latios*.
    Although for some it was out of their range, it still wasn't uncommon to see multiples of those cards running around in many decks, especially in the Masters.

    ^^ AMU, Kingdra and their counter luxray, shall be the 3 big contenders going into BRs. AMU is just godly, 2 for 200, all there set up, free retreat and no weakness, it is a great combination. Kingdra has claydol, bronzong MT and others to do it's draw etc. Luxray is just a counter of both, nuff said.

    Oh looky here, DarthPika has found another deck to hype up. Finally recovered from your Hurricane fiasco?

    I'm planning on runing speed kingdra with 4-3-4 king 2-2 or maybe even 3-3 dol, a lunatone tech 17 or 18 water energy and trainers that can help my set up. This is because I like his second attack more than it's first. If you can get that out around T3 or 4 then your in good shape because you keep doing 60 20 to everything that will be a problem and getting energy in the discard for when they come up so then you can kill it.

    Lol you are absolutely right Scipio.

    No, I don't think he is. Hurricane was a very good deck, which i played myself. I made it 3rd in two CCs and 5th in one (4-0, 4-1, 3-1). Then GG came and smashed it, and it wasn't played anymore. Hurricane is the best deck I've ever played, and I've played a lot of decks.

    Uh-uh, yeah, lets compare the nrs of ABR's won by Hurricane to those won by Kingdra Ex, Mario and Blissey. Hurricane wasn't crap, it was an interesting deck, but it was never able to be the BDIF, or even close to that title.

    Either way, you're prolly gonna play 4-3/2-4 Kingdra, 2-2 Claydol and 4 Starters (I found they make the deck flow so much better rather as relying on T2 Dra. With that, you don't leave much for techs. 1-0-1 Kazam can help but can run into hand issues. 1-0-1 Dusknoir is always nasty. 1 Regice can be evil against starters, but doesn't have much use otherwise.

    Another option I've seen though is going 4-3-4 Kingdra, forego the Claydol and go 3-2 MT Bronzong, with 1 MD one teched in, which can take advantage of the minor spread Kingdra provides. Whether its the most effective tech or not, I dont know, but its a potentional option which I will be testing out over the summer.

    Um.... Hurricane was a very good deck b4 plox was made and too many people started to play more gardys then gallades. I top4ed states and regionals with it so i would know. I agree its not bdif but nowadays everybody doesnt play plox or w/e so you could actually win a br with it.

    But with kingdra yeah alakazam works the best with maybe lunasol and the regi that discards two cards and then reversals an unevoloved pokemon.

    Kigdra + Regice + Claydol

    Oh
    didnt say it would be good cuz of the price.
    Im saying it wouldnt be seen by everyone just because of the demand for it early on
    The stradegy for the deck is seen,disruption an speed.
    Masters everyone will try this deck,but not everyone will play it tho
    cuz of the other options for decks we may have that is cheaper or easier to obtain
    is what IM saying.

    Who ever played more Gallades then Garvedoirs, no one that knew anything about pokemon would ever make that mistake. Hurricane and was only used in BR's, and it lost to Blissy as the dominate deck. Once SW came out the metagame was all about G&G and Magmortar. Now in fall BR's they are still among the best decks, but with Emploeon back in the mix. It was too bad the Eevees turned out to be nothing more then tech pokemon, that was dissapointing.
