    drapion is too heavy of a pokemon plus it decreases consisitency. weavile g adds consistency plus retreat for free and its attack works

    Better question. Is this a pure sp deck, and if so, which sp build?

    60 x 2 .= 120. Ten short of KOinh the prime.
  7. it has 10 base so 10 x6 +10 =140

    You mean [10 + (6 X 10)] X 2 =140

    Plus you aren't accounting for Expert Belt which makes it very very easy to hit numbers. I am a fan of Drapion at the moment due to the splashability, (no need for Dark nrg)

    As a general tech card, Weavile G is better. Drapion 4 is the superior Gengar counter, but it's useless in most other decks.

    See COTD staff, this is what happens when you let people review those horribly crummy cards -.-
    Drapion has no uses other then counter one specific threat. Weavile makes for a reasonably good start as its a free call energy.

    This :thumb:

    Weavile's cool and all but Team Attack is a pretty weak attack when you take Uxie/Azelf drops into consideration, and the only thing u really want to Team Attack is Gengar amirite. And at 80 HP he's a pretty frail attacker against anything else so really he's just useful as an all-around tech for the free call if u so happen to start with the 1 Weavile. If u want a call effect so bad play 2 Call Energy, you'll have the space if you leave in the Psychic for Drapion/other stuff and take out the Dark.
    I used Drapion in my DialgaChomp at AZ States yesterday and it single-handedly gave me both my wins (2-3 drop so I could SLEEP). Bronzong the DCE, Cyrus for the Gain and Psychic, sweep sweep sweep. I was about to smash another Gengar deck round 4 when I started with Drapion DCE but WILD MACHAMP APPEARED and took 3 prizes before I could set up.
