I'm not exactly a noob...but....I've been playing for about 9mnths, got about 3500 cards....played my first draft 2 week ago and was top4 out of 50 before we had to stop playing. I'm thinking about weaknesses and the need to back them up or change them on evolution lines. At present I'm preferrential to a swinub/piloswine based deck (e-on format). I like this as I can change type and weakness within the one evolution line from ground (G weak L resist) to 'the other' (steel weak), but in more general terms is it necessary to cover a main wekness with the opposing colour. e.g. Blaziken backed up by electric pokes or steel by water? AND if you do is it enough to count on a non weak poke to cover the second weakness. So in the case of Blaziken do you use a electric poke to back it up and then a fighting/rock/ground poke to back that up?? How often do poeple use pokes that change weakness/resistance in the same deck?
