    Rew's Nationals Report

    So I'm having a rough ride... 18 hours from Dallas to Nashville to Columbus, adding 6 more hours back to Nashville, where I am at the moment. Don't forget I have 12 hours back to Texas. Anyways, if you haven't seen my signature in the past 2 weeks, then you probably don't know who I am. Funkalicious was actaully a deck that a group of friends(me and jkwarrior, hitmonchan93, swampert97) thought wasn't as popular as it should of been. So we worked with it for about 2-3 weeks before nats started. Jkwarrior played it in 2 Battle Roads and went 7-0 in one, and 4-2 in the other, though he went 4-2 we don't think it's that bad, his only losses on the weekend were to Cyrus. Empoleon/Bronzong, here you come to Nationals.


    We get to Ohio at about 5:30 P.M. and hound a couple of people at the desks for our badges. 70 dollars times 3 = 210 total. My youngers were free, my Dad was paid for from my brother's regionals win, and my mom got a badge from a friend of ours! We get back to the playing area, play a couple few league games and watch the Prof. Cup's top cut. I didn't lose any league games. I only got 3 packs of cards total from them. Swampert97 and I ran around with his common deck and totally messed around! We found a guy with no pants on.

    Later on that night I meet up with Cyrus, jkwarrior, drty byl, and a couple other people I got to meet. There I learned the story of Deck Box Guy, or THE ACE, and sure enough he came over to us, "Who wants to die today?". Yeh, we were freaked out. My poor mom had to talk to him about retreating fossils and not drawing potions for 30 minutes. He should of won Nationals. Gino's good enough though. The Ace would of been better.

    After a couple of test plays with drty byl and helping Water Pokemon Master out with his deck, and asking for my brothers deckhelp from Cyrus, I check out my room! Good Night.


    We arrive at the playing area at about oh, 7:30 A.M. and check out what's going on. I found a couple of my buddies and I hit the road with playtesting. jkwarrior calls me up, I got your deck sheet. So I wait for him to bring me my deck sheet, which was more awesome than anyone elses because it had a picture of a rainbow astronaut on the back. My Dad asked me if I was in line after about an hour and a half of being there I told him I didn't even fill out my decklist yet, and I registered and got my deck checked, and watched some testing. Later, I was off to my first round. I was part of the Yellow.

    BTW, here's my Pokemon line.

    1 Empoleon lv X
    3 Empoleon MD
    2 Prinplup DP
    3 Piplup DP
    2 Bronzong MD
    2 Bronzor MD
    2 Claydol GE
    2 Baltoy GE
    1 Dusknoir DP
    1 Duskull DP
    1 Absol ex PK
    1 Phione MD
    1 Holon's Castform HP

    Bannete/Jirachi ex

    I get a Phione/Call Energy start she goes first with a Shuppet, Ascension start. I tryed to get her to KO my Phione, and I attacked an energy to Piplup so I could possibly get the Turn 2, she played it smart and took the turns to KO my Phione. I eventually get set-up and Start to Dual Splash as she was ahead in prizes, being careful about when to knock out Banette. I end up getting the win. It was an okay game though.



    I didn't test this matchup as much, but we didn't have a good match with Blissy so, this might now be as good. He gets the first few prizes, I end up knocking his Cessations out of the way, because I played 3 windstorms. Heck, his crystal beach and Cessations could of killed me, but I got windstorm when I needed it. I was all good. I came back from 6-3 to 0-2. It was a good game until he couldn't attack anymore.



    I get a Duskull start, this took forever, there was an obnoxious kid next to me throwing stuff but we eventually start the round. He get a Piplup on my bench, I was going to try some awesome Dusknoir trick, but it was prized. I lose because he got the game.



    This round was also a bad game, I only got to use Hypnosis, I had no supporters and only one energy all game. :nonono:...



    He only gets a couple cards out, couldn't draw into anything to save his life. I knock out his last Empoleon, for a second prize and the game. He drops on the loss. Bye resistance from here.



    I feel bad cuz I had to play against jkwarrior. In a knockout game. There was one thing I'm going to say. I wasn't going down without a fight. I think i gave it to him =)

    I got a turn two Empoleon, Surf Together, but i attached a water instead for a Dual Splash. I knock out his Piplups trying to make him avoid the attack. He knocks out my Empoleon and soon my Claydol, and soon I can't do anything. It was a good game. Too bad it was a knockout game. Rather played him at home.


    Turn-2 Houndoom

    He doesn't get much of anything for a start, I knockout his Houndoom, and next turn two Houndours with a nice Absol move. He scoops later on. Weakness, ftl. Not a good game.



    It was an interesting game, we talk about the guy that was throwing stuff in Round 3 and then we play our game. he gets the first few prizes, I sent up some easy stuff. He poisons for 20+30 poison a turn. I get my warp points everytime I need them, and I win eventually.



    I have a bit to catch up on, one of those things is beating a Gardevoir/Gallade deck. Number two was going 6-3. Both had to be accomplished this game. We have our game, he gets a fast gallade, and I answer with a good Empoleon KO, Dusknoir wins the game and he picks mine up and I pick his up, he couldn't get it back. It was a good game overall, but better luck next time.

    48% resistance
    60th Place

    Mrs. Noah
    Pizza+Taco Sauce
    Going 6-3, good for Masters
