    Deck 1- I have been playing this deck for about 2-3 weeks, but now that Garchomp level X is out, if i can get my hands on one i can run my intended list. For all intents and purposes, rate this deck as if i had the level X


    1x Garchomp lv.X

    2x Togekiss
    1x Togetic
    2x Togepi

    2x Garchomp
    1x Gabite
    2x Gible(Oran berry)

    2x Ho-oh

    2x Baltoy
    2x Claydol

    Trainers/supporters-23(12 Supporters,11 Trainers)

    4x Bebe's search
    4x Professor Oaks visit
    2x Rossanne's research
    2x Quick ball
    4x Pluspower
    2x Night matinence
    3x Rare candy
    2x Team Galactics Wager


    3x Lightning Energy
    3x Fire energy
    3x Psychic energy
    3x Fighting energy
    3x Water energy
    3x Grass Energy
    1x Darkness Energy

    The major problem with this deck is the energy line-up. I'm not sure if the Grass energy is worth it, but i really really fear Kabutops and have no idea how big that deck will be. Speaking of which.......My second deck is

    Deck 2- This one needs a lot more help. This is basically a craptastic rough draft thrown together. It doesn't run badly, and i usually get kabutops out turn 2, but i'm just not sure how to solve my energy problems. Fossil's are listed as both trainers and pokemon, so count them for whatever category you want, just not both.

    Pokemon-22(6 of which are fossil's)

    3x Kabutops
    4x Kabuto
    4x Dome fossil

    2x Old Amber
    2x Aerodactyl(does his poke power stack, thats the main reason i'm running him, because i can get him out so fast.)

    2x Piplup(dp)
    2x Prinplup(Dp)
    2x Empoleon(Dp)
    1x Empoleon Lv.X(Im not sure the deck can support it.)

    Trainers/Supporters-25(6 of which are fossils.)

    4x Team Galactic Mars
    2x Bebe's Search(not sure if they are needed, but i have no idea what else to run.)
    4x Dome Fossil
    2x Old Amber
    2x Fossil Excavation
    4x Professor Oak's visit
    3x Rare Candy
    4x Rosanne's research


    9x Water Energy
    8x Fighting Energy

    Thanks in Advance.

    Run deck two, but take out the Empoleon line and add Absol ex and a Zapdos for tech, as well as a minimum 1-1-1 MD Omastar line and a fourth Kabutops.

    Then, cut the Energy down to 10 Fighting and 4 DRE, and take out all of the Mars and Roseanne's. this gives you 11 slots, plus one more from fiddling with the Pokemon above, for a total of 12 slots. Now, add a 2-2 Claydol line, 1 more Bebe's, 3 Quick Balls, 1 Night Maintenance, and fill out the rest with some more Old Ambers and Helix Fossils. And . . . you should be set. ^^

    If you wanna run number too, this is the best way to run empoleon IMO..

    4-3-4 empo 3 md 1 dp.. Or 3-3-3-1 empo md 1 level x

    2-2 aerodactyl

    2-2 claydol

    1-1-1 omastar md

    4 rare candy
    4 master ball
    2 bebes research
    1 celios
    2 holon fossil
    2 roseannes
    1 mentor
    2 stevens advice
    2 wager
    2 night maintanence

    16 energy

    2 DRE
    2 scramble (or 3 depending on how you like to play)
    2 wp (win against gg..)
    10 water

    That is literally the best way to run empoleon lock.. Try it out, it has done very well for me..

    (P.S. if you use the 3-3-3-1 u have 1 extra space, i would suggest another roseannes)
