    STRATEGY: Empoleon is Empoleon. It's the best Water Pokemon out there, snipes, and hits hard. Mantyke to get Basics, and Mantine to give free retreat. Abomasnow does a few things here: (1) change of type (Grass) still utilizes Water Energy, (2) different Weakness (Fire), and (3) interesting Poke-Body (which does not combine with anything in particular, but is still a hazard). Snover's Curiosity has mine.

    Team Galactic to take advantage of Empoleon Lv.X Poke-Power and to be generally annoying. Glacia to help Weakness and control Stadiums.

    do you need 4 mentor even with 3 manytke to get your basics, i must say that you have found a good combo with empoleon and galactic,

    changed 1 mentor for 1 lake barrier (tech) for surprise attack

    would like 2 scott, but not at the expense of windstorm

    I really don't see the point in Glacia's Stadium. The main Lightning card i see this deck having to worry about, is Electivire, and if you play down the Stadium, it's a chew-toy for the Level X Electivire.

    What i would do, JMO, is take out Abomasnow altogether. I'd cut Mantine down to a 1-1 too. I'd put in a 3-3 Ambipom and another Prinplup into the mix, to fill those 7 slots.

    Trainer-wise, i'd drop the Stadiums altogether. I don't see it doing you a whole bunch of anything. I'd put in another Team Galactic's Wager, Holon Mentor and Night Maintenance in the place of the stadiums.

    Overall, my list would probably look something like this. A good bit different than yours, but holding on to the same general strategy of hand disruption.

    Pokémon - 20

    4 Piplup
    4 Prinplup
    2 Empoleon
    2 Empoleon Level: X

    3 Aipom
    3 Ambipom

    1 Mantyke
    1 Mantine

    Trainers - 24

    4 Holon Mentor
    4 Celio's Network
    4 Team Galactic's Wager
    3 Rare Candy
    3 Windstorm
    3 TV Reporter
    2 Night Maintenance
    1 Scott

    Energy - 16

    11 Water Energy
    3 Double Rainbow Energy
    2 Scramble Energy

    Fun idea Tom.
