    As you all know the 2007 WC Decks are releasing soon and i can't decide which deck to buy! Now in a tug of war between absolutions and empoleon so which one is better? Your opinions are appreciated =)

    Absolutions is funnier to use and has a lot of EXs.

    empy was a better deck but it lacks "flavour".

    Better? How do *you* define better? After all thats the question being asked . Empoleon's play is probably closer in feel to the current decks. Absolution's heavy reliance upon Stump, powers, and Versatile Mew doesn't translate well into the current game.

    If you are completely undecided then why not resolve things in true Pokemn style: Flip a coin, or play Rock Paper Scizors :D

    for my meaning of 'better' i would say in terms of consistency, set-up speed, match-ups against current archetypes and play strategy?

    empoleon is the deck. absolution is admittedly good, but empoleon is da biz if it's played properly, problem is, it took me like, 2 months to get it right! people thnk it's right, but in fact, it's not. so yeah empoleon is better but you gotta have loads of experience with it.

    Absolutions is just a flat out fun deck to play. Since this will be played for fun rather than tournaments (obviously) I highly recommend it.

    currently absolutions is in my mind now since i play casual and there is no OP in my country...did you all know that malaysia sucks bad?

    lucario is definatly not the play with empoleon. atm, i've slapped a 1-0-1 line of omastar pk in. it seems to work fine.

    but yeah, lucario is rubbish in this deck.
