    In many of the battle roads gg or plox has beat an empoleon or other decks. In my opinion empoleon has a herd time beating gg and plox.
    So what could an empoleon player do to increase their chances aginst gg and plox.
    All I know of that if you put unown g under empoleon they can't use sonic blade.

    Please discuss

    empolen can win if the player is smart and can pull off a quick KO on the dusknor witch is the only real threat to empolen (it a 50/50 shot it all depends on who sets up faster )

    Empoleon can't beat a good Plox, and you can't really do anything to help the matchup. :/

    Plox FTW!!!

    Alright, yes, he bought a deck list. Okay, we get the point. It's getting really old for me, and I'm not even the one being spoken about.

    Anyway, yeah, I agree with DarthPika, an Empoleon isn't going to beat a good Plox but 2 or 3 times out of 10.

    If both decks are good, it's a very even match in my experience.

    Then it would be slow but if you had the right trainer line it would probably win.

    What have we talked about numerous times on AIM?

    Anyways, Empoleon beats Plox. Simple as that.
    Especially if they use the Omastar SS tech, that makes it so easy to escape from Plox that they might as well just use gallade.
    Empoleon > Plox.
    Back in Black > Empoleon.

    Psychic Lock is a pain, but Empoleon isn't as vulnerable to it as a lot of decks.

    It doesn't counter the spread, which is Empoleon's main weapon. It takes three Psychic Locks to KO without PlusPower/Strength Charm by which time it can spread 180 damage.

    You could run Empoleon just with Phione, Call Energy, and 4 Cess Crystals.

    You can still include a 2-2 Claydol line so that you had the option of using it to set up if needed. You just have to be smart about when to use Cess.

    Agree & you can use Scizor MD as a tech against PLOX...

    Its first attack will make them pay for using DRE & its Resistance to Psychic will come in handy against Gardy SW but Gallade can just OHKO it... XD
