    Okay, I thought of this deck because someone wanted to know if Empoleon was good and I thought, "hmm..... it will beat mag, but not G&G". So then, I decided "Gardevoir"!!! It'll help you set up fast, it's a Psychic pokemon, and Bring Down helps if you spread damage with Empoleon.


    x4 Piplup
    x3 Prinplup
    x3 Empoleon
    x1 Empoleon Lv.X
    x3/1 Ralts SW/DF
    x2 Kirlia
    x2 Gardevoir SW
    x2 Gardevoir Lv.X
    x1 Gardevior ex


    x4 Rare Candy
    x4 Celio's Network
    x1 Castaway
    x2 Stregth Charm
    x2 Lake Boundry
    x1 Scott
    x3 Professor Oak's Visit
    x2 Night Maintenence
    x3 Roseanne's Research


    x3 Scramble
    x3 DRE
    x4 :water:
    x3 :psychic:
    x3 Multi

    AGAINST ALL DECKS STRATEGY: Start with Empoleon and spread damage.

    AGAINST G&G STRATEGY: Use Gardevoir's Psychic Lock + Stregth Charm + Lake Boundry.

    AGAINST MAGMORTAR: Use Empoleon's Aqua Jet + Lake Boundry.

    AGAINST OTHER DECKS: Use Gardevoir's Bring Down after spreading damage with Empoleon.

    Nice list, I would take out a scramble for a DRE, then take out a roseannes for another POV. overall good list!

    Great deck... I just think that you should add a DRE and a Gallade b/c you can ALWAYS use DREs and galade and empoleon just combo SSSSOOOO well together.

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    Oh yeah, a 1-1 or 2-2 Cress X or Palkia X would work real well in here, and you may want to add some warp points and WPs.

    I like to keep the Scramble in but I changed POV to Roseanne's and Empo to Empo X.

    This list is awesome. The two really pair together. Like i said, maybe a Gardy ex tech, and throwing in some Multi Energy if you can. I also think a 2nd Gallade would get the deck going also. IDK, nice list though

    nice. I like this list alot. Power Stops with the Gardy ex, Spread with the Empoleon, and clean up with Gardy Lv.X. Now only if i could get this built for Regionals =P I dunno if i like 3 Scramble However, too much relying on comebacks. IDK, nice list though

    You going to have a hard time seting up since you are trying to set up 2 stage 2'. Emp Lv.X is not that great so it not needed.

    This deck is not slow because:
    1. I could use Prinplup instead of the stage 2.
    2. Gardi has Telepass to use their supporters.
    3. uhhhh......... idk what else..........

    I hope ure using Prinpulp in the first few turns since ure gonna have to spread damage early and often as possible to setup future Kos and to trade off prizes, and tech in a Gallade,its gonna have to sonic blade against Emp decks and other decks.

    I think that the problem with this deck is that Empoleon is weak to lightning which is Pachirisu. I came up with the idea of .....

    4-4 Weavile
    4-2-3 Gallade
    2-2 Gardevoir/Lv.X
    1 Mew * (star)
    1 Mew SW

    I decided to use a water pokemon that's not weak to lightning, and Weavile can collect dark energys, lower your opponent's hand, and it's a water pokemon, that way, Mag gets really scared. Weavile can also help kill off those pesky Bannettes.

    but Banette matchup is stillin Banettes favor tho since it will outspeed u and your setup.

    I gave up on this deck because Water starters just don't seem to do good agaist Pachirisu.

    You might consider a 3-3-2-2 Empo Lv X line. You can always Snipe for 70-80 then Teleportation and Bring Down, then Teleportation EMpo back out and Snipe Wash and Repeat!
    Don't forget to Supreme Command when you can!

    Here is an idea on the Pokemon:


    x3 Pachirisu
    x3 Piplup
    x3 Prinplup
    x3 Empoleon
    x1 Empoleon Lv.X
    x3 Ralts
    x2 Kirlia
    x2 Gardevoir SW
    x2 Gardevoir Lv.X
    x1 Gallade

    Just a start!

    The deck isnt only for countering Mag, it can also counter G&G. Gardy+LB+Str Charm=OHKO on Gallade, and Gardy+LB=OHKO Gardy
