    soooooooo my friend mike sleeps over and we test alot. im planning on playing begfriend but i knew that empo would be too rampant so i play empoleon/zong. i get there friday morning and diaz(lil magma) helps me metagame by adding in cess and 1-1 trio tech. this helped me soooo much and i owe everything to him. in the side event i go 6-1 on friday, losing to a T2 plox. im pretty confident and enter the tourny with da play.....

    round 1 vs. ??? with empostar

    i feel kind of bad, because he was misplaying sooo much and i get a T2 trio. i destroy his whole field and he cant snipe anything FTW gg


    round 2 vs. chris fouchet w/ speedrill

    i get T2 empo and hit all of the weedles. he starts swarming by T3 but he just cant keep up since i cess locked em


    round 3 vs. ape

    so yyeahh


    round 4 vs. andrew krekeler w/ empostar

    he gets T3 splash, i respond with a trio and a splash. it gets into an exchange and at one point he commands my only scramble. i think he has me but thankfully i draw into scramble via claydol and rose/piplup/candy empo retreat chatot dual splash two pokes get me down to 1 prize. next rurn he cant attack since he used impact. i attach water and dual splash. he cant KO me since im clean and next turn i impact a star with 3 on it FTW


    round 5 vs. Daniel chin w/ plox/noir tech

    we both get nice set ups and it turns into a rapid exchange. at one point i bench a 4th poke since i killed the noir previously, and he uses maintenance/rose/telepass bebe/ candy dusknoir ughhgghh THEN he whiffs on getting rid of cess so he cant dark palm:thumb:. at this point its tied 1 to 1 prize. i cosmic for 6 and whiff on the WATER i need to win. i wager, lose, and GET IT!. YESSS he slams the table right after that DAMN!!


    BTW my memory is kind of fuzzy at this point so the matchups might not be in order

    round 6 vs. Austin Cook w/ bliss/zong

    i swarm with zongs throughout the game, and it becomes really close when it gets down to 2 to 2 prizes.
    then i realize i have the game when i dual splash i claydol and a benched zong which both had previous damage. he KOs me with active bliss. i bring up empo, scramble dual splash the 2 benched pokes FTW gg man


    im feelin pretty good by now.....

    round 7 vs. Clint Armstrong w/GG/noir tech

    he gets turn 2 lade and takes 3 early prizes ughghhh. i make an amazing comeback with a WP'd empoleon X after he flipped all his prizes and start sweeping from there. i know that in order to retrieve quick prizes ill have to splash sentrets/furrets for easy prizes. i get it down to 1 to 2 prizes in his favor. he warps up my only bench(dol) and ploxs it. time is called EXACTLY on my turn. i scramble to dol, retreat, dual splash 2 pokes on the bench for my last 2 prizes. man that was close, and i felt bad since he was crying and i told him that thats the 1st time ill probably ever make that kind of comeback again so its all good:wink:



    round 8 vs. johnathan ??? w/plox/noir tech( 3 in a row!!)

    this guys really cool and is the only other undeafeated. i draw dead while he gets T2 garde, lade, noir, AND claydol. 3 candies T2. really nice. i finally get something up but its just not enough. gg


    oh well, i knew it would end sooner or later. so im 2nd seed going into cut playing tortttterrrribbllee (yes)

    next day.......

    round 9 versus cody babchuk w/ torterra

    game 1- i dual splash literally everything and he makes 2 HUGE misplays. i OHKO all the terras FTW.

    game 2-..... see game 2 :/

    8-1 (9-1)

    TOP 16!

    round 10 vs. joshua ??? w/ GG noir

    game 1- he starts with duskull, T2 noir :// i get great setup with phione and dual splash everything so i can one shot em.

    game 2- he gets another duskull start so i felt kinda bad after we draw pass for literally 6-7 turns when i finally get empo out and dual splash everything and get all 6 prizes.

    9-1 (10-1)


    round 11 vs. orion Craig w/ eeveelutions/tech

    im not very confident going into this game as he beat diaz but i obviously play it out

    game 1- he doesnt get much and i dual splash everything. he scoops after about 4-5 minutes.

    game 2- i get T1 empo and draw pass for like 3 turns and he gets T3 leafy X out. i scoop

    game 3- he locks me with jirachi ex as i get absolutely nothing. gg

    oh well i knew that im at least 40-60 against leafy and orion is just an amazing player who wound up winning the entire event. your deck is awesommeee :p

    i get some stuff for top 8, and since i already planned on what to run for worlds and im not playing empo ill post my list if anyone cares :p

    4 pip
    2 prin
    3 empo
    1 empo lv.x

    Dear Alex,

    Excellent job, but I'm not surprised given how bright you are. I expect free lessons when you get back to Time Warp.

    Go NJ crew at worlds and congrats again to our whole NJ crew for a great showing!
