What is a good tech against G&G that could be fitted into Fire TRUK?
Grumpig and Pachi. Pig can OHKO a non-lv.uped Magmortar and has a -30 Poke_Body to :fire: and :water:
mawile GE is kinda good.
mismagius is okay, i guess
You shouldn't have to tech against GG if you're running Mortar. Just make your list as consistent as possible and use the natural advantage you have in the matchup.
I see you changed your sig. lol
Magmortar shouldn't have to tech against G&G. In fact it's the other way around.
Typhlosion DF + Lake Boundry.
theres no real tech against it. consistency and luck are about what it comes to. Mawile helps, cessation helps, work on shutting down their claydol and gardy and they have very little draw engine.
I love how his first post was backwards. But I totally agree with you. Typhlosion gets the free retreat from gardy's pheobe's and moonlights, thus making shady move a usable power.
Thank you for agreeing with me, but what do you mean by my first post being "backwards?"
If you read your first post,
It is a post about putting a tech in GG to counter fire TRUK.....
oh yeah, sorry.....
Mewtwo* okhos everything in the deck and can be powered with typhlosion/blaziken + holon's castform.
(just throwing up an idea, I haven't tried it)
Just play a G&G that can beat Magmortar and most importantly other G&G's
..........another backwards post....................
How is it backwards? There is no reliable tech to play in Magmortar in order to consistently beat G&G therefore it is better to just play G&G.
ah, sorry, I mis-read. I read it as, in order to beat magmortor, play a GG that can beat it.
Ector's right. The techs are far and few between. This isn't like back in the '04 format when you could make a whole deck out of tech's. It's all about consistency now. You get the consistent set-up with alittle disruption on the side you'll have a chance. The thing is claydol allows any deck to recover hand size quickly and gallade can 1-shot anything in the format. Teching against something like that isn't going to happen. The best way to shut it down is to run a deck with cess crystal or use the mawile to wipe out their prizes as early as possible.
Yeah I agree Mawile is one of the best techs against GaG. In all reality you should be able to flip at least 2 prizes b4 the Mawile dies. However the huge problem with Mawile is that it is weak to the other popular deck Magmorter. So in Magmorter mirrors you're screwed if you only start with Mawile tech. :lol:
Try Mew SW and Castforms.... Trading a stage 2 for a basic should always hurt
