    i was thinkin of playin

    latias (HP)- pokebody- as long as you have latios or latios ex in play, each players' evolved pokemon can't use pokebodys.

    latios ex (df)- tech against exs and gives itself and latias free retreat with its pokebody. mainly for latias's pokebody.

    in gardy/gallade/absol. Its a tech against the heavy monarchy/magmortar running around.

    LMK if its completely stupid or a good idea.:lol:

    Monarchy runs around? Where?

    A Latilock, which is what you refer to, is fun to use against Honchkrow. Its more handy to just play Cessation Crystal or, in the Gardyllade case, Battle Frontier, though.

    In memphis, Tn. there were 2 monarchy players and honchkrow is going to be at the next cc im going to, too. i like latilock cuz they can't just pull a windstorm. there is almost no way for them to stop it. and in monarchy, honchkrow, and magmortar it would really hurt them if they couldn't use their 'bodys

    yes, plz play your latios ex on the field against magmotar. there would be no way for me to snipe it immediately for 2 prizes.

    You could still just play one of the regular Latios instead.

    Hmm but then you have two poor starters.

    Well, that problem is fixed by not playing the Latilock when against Magmortar, methinks. Just rely on some brute Gallade force to seal that matchup for you.

    Somebody was running this in Dallas a while back to combat Donkrow. Seems like absol-gardelade pretty much donks Donkrow without it unless Krow get insanely lucky with baleful wind in the first few turns.

    you can only do so once or twice before you have to resort to sonic blading. the matchup is extreamely difficult for gallade simply due to the fact that magmortar can just sit there and spread damge so you can fireball bazooka 3 gardys/gallades in one turn.
