    Since Elec has died down, I think it's safe...I've heard of tons of techs and sub-attackers for this deck though....which is the best one?

    Right now I'm looking at Octillery, Cloyster, Gyrados MT, Palkia X and Quagsire...

    Which is the best?

    There may be others I'm also not aware of...I'm definitely curious.

    Thanks in advance!

    Gyrados is a pretty good card (Lol at them when their Magmar does 20 to Magikarp, evolve, attach an Energy, hit for 70). Octillery can get rid of Scrambles, DRE or Boost. Palkia X is amazing, use it with Mantine.

    Any one of those could be good. Hope I've helped.

    I like 3 versions

    4 4 3 1 line with lvx and you play er2 team mars team wager warps max fishing engine maxed glacia staduim battle frontiers cessations castaway max candies dre scrambles

    Another one with raichu delta spread early and clean up with empoleon and prinpulp with cessation er2 tgmars tgwdger fishing engine or scott engine

    Another line with cloyster and absol ex techs 1 ray and just snipe and snipe and cause multi kos.

    Those are the 1s I think work best.they are really annoying.

    Lucario is a decent buddy, helps in the Blissey match-up and does decent sniping. Only problem is the different energy needs of the two, but it's managable in most cases.

    i can work by itself.... SWIFT EMPOLEON!!! You just need to Rare Candy and start to attach DREs and doing lots of damage. Keeping in Cessation Crystal and maybe Pachy as a starter can make this deck work.

    Turn 1- Pachy. Get 3 Piplup.
    T2- tart evolving and attaching DRE. Also, aatach Cessation Crystals.
    T3- While one does damage, power others up.
    T4- keep on repeating.

    I'm not partial to DRE when I can help it. It also reduces the sniping damage, even in Aqua Jet.

    Well, playing a deck you have no experience with is a bad idea. You're much better off using something you are well familiar with (as long as it is a good deck lol). Good luck!

    If you even think for a second that Empoleon is week then you are dead wrong. My brother went 19/7 with and Empoleon Lucario deck during btlrds and cc's.

    Empoleon is good but it's all about what you play it with. And by looking around here, most people have no idea what to play with it.
