    Seems like Molters would be a good candidate to put in a Garchomp deck. Anyone ever try this?

    you can't bring back a basic pokemon..... I think.....

    NOPE i was wrong you can bring back basics but I think there are better pokemon to use with garchomp

    I am just trying to think outside the box. I know most folks are thinking Stage 2s with Garchomp's attack, but a fully charged Molters doing 100 damage on the next turn is nothing to snease at.

    I am also thinking Alakazam would be great too. You could discard energies all day and get them back with Garchomp if you wanted ;)

    It might be a good counter to leafeon with a Lake B in play.

    Wouldn't infernape MD be better with chomp becuase it has free retreat, does more damage with 3 fires and also it has a decent first attack.

    Um why do you need Lake B? Leafeon = 100 + 20 > 90. Leafeon LvX = 100 + 30 > 110. Notice that this is a one hit KO even if they have Espeon in play. I have plans for Moltres next season, however not if Kingdra or any water pokémon gets big obviously.

    Just a few things:

    1.) Garchomp does 110 for 3 energy.
    2.) Moltres does 100 (130 to grass) for 3 energy and has to discard all of them.
    3.) It takes same effort to restore a Garchomp as to restore a Moltres.
    4.) Moltres has x2 water weakness and is OHKOed by Empoleon, Kingdra etc.
    5.) Moltres forfeits using its power when called with restore.

    Sorry, but I don't see any reason to play Moltres with Garchomp.
    Moltres is a nice card, but for Garchomp, there are a lot of better co-Pokémon / techs.

    Are there still players who have Leafeon decks without Umbreon?

    Good points ShadowGuard. I am still considering Alakazam and Infernape MD is still an option as well.

    Moltres is great for the power, but then you can't restore energy onto it. Of course, rotom gets around a tails for the power. Its also faster then garchomp and can be an early attacker. But, with that new rayquaza coming out, I don't see moltres being played over him (maybe along with him...).

    I know a combo for those 2 pokemon:

    Garchomp/Togekiss or Garchomp/Blissey
