    So I've come to the conclusion that empoleon beats everything except mike reynolds. I have found literally no bad matchups.

    So what I'm asking is, what does empoleon lose to?

    eletivire + lake B = 2x weakness.

    Thats nice and all, but they have to get Electivire set up first which isn't easy.

    Empoleon loses to a competant player playing a competant deck.

    Electivire is too slow for it to survive, and unless they max out windstorms its an easy win for Empoleon on most cases.

    It loses to lots of things, every card has a weakness, be it popular or quite lame

    Example: Aggron ex cg vs. Destiny, Destiny being the great deck while Aggron has yet to see any major play.

    Empoleon isn't unbeatable. It looses to pokemon with high HP.

    Electrivire works with or without Lake Barrier.

    I agree with Dark Weedle, It's overrated.

    I don't see any great combos with it.

    It's obvious you haven't played a good player with a good deck:thumb:

    well, actually, i did play a fairly good player, but i've changed my empoleon deck a bit and i rocks even more now

    From my experience, the only deck I had a problem beating with Empoleon was Feraligatr from MT. Anything that can OHKO Empoleon like Gatr can or weakness exploitation is really all I see.

    Michael Reynolds is sooo over-rated, one being Empoleon = MikeReynoldsIsaDonk.dec. Yeah but Tyranitar + DRE + mantine + Catty is actually a decent deck however, Penguin can run[SIZE=-1] Cessation Crystal it does help vs T TAR.

    I also agree Meganium d is a pain to beat. However how about Crystal shard or something and with Raichu d (weak)/ or you can run the 1-0-1 Infernape line.

    Well, T2 Kricketune may stand a chance if it swarms fast enough.
    T2 80 kills Prinplup and Piplup.
    If they can't recover after a Team Galactic's Wager then they are goners, BUT I assume Empoleon can easily recover from most things. It's not power reliant either, oh well.

    Kingdra Swarm is a decent matchup. If you can get the Kingdras all set up, then just let them kill your bench cause once they are facing down ONLY Kingdras they are gonna be in surious trouble.
