Garde,Amphy, or Tops players dont get discouraged. BAR is a big threat but is very much stoppable. BAR is very fast is speed is why it wins.if u played a game that lasted over 20-25 min BAR would most likely lose. 50 damage a turn in this day is not very effecient. the key to beating it is to be as fast or faster than it i.e. boost energy, oracle. trust me it is an awesome card as blazzy is also but its overated. no bar deck has ever beat me and i play amphy ex espy. second turn espy with boost and will do 40 a torchic and that person is stupid if hes gonna attach energy the next turn so espy 2nd turn can also do it incorporate boost into ur deck and a guarantee u will fair better against bar. If ur playin a deck that is capable of attacking turn 2 with a boost. i.e. tops ex, garde ex, amphy ex, kingdra ex abuse that power.
