    Ok so after last week and my poor showing with QueenHatter I decided I would make a deck that fit my playing style, fast and risky.. and what better deck than Skittles. Last week after states, OLD SCHOOL PLAYER contacted me and showed me the deck and I was like wow this cool and seems good, I may as well play it for cali :D
    Now what is Skittles, its Ho-oh/Togekiss.. during the week I saw various versions of it posted and kind of laughed at the bashing it was getting, but I ignored it because I knew the deck is decent.... so on to the tournament... FYI: LIST I USED IS NOT ON THE GYM

    We get to Cali at 2 AM, and DukeFireBird let's us stay with him, I playtest with Crono Sabre and own his face lol... then i TRY and sleep but Crono snores >.> So I get 2 hours sleep..
    I register, do an interview for the podcast.. and wait for the tournament..

    Round 1: Kirstin(Magmortar/Typhlosion)
    He mulligans and I see that it's Magmortar and say ok w/e. My start is Ho-Oh woo... I draw Pach and have to slowly charge up Ho-oh for 2 turns, then I retreat for Pach, CFF... and start to set up.. he ko's 1 Pachy, I ko a mag with Ho-oh, he ko's it I flip tails.. then I bring up Togekiss and ko it... The game is back and forth, and I end up winning on time 3 prizes to 2.... so see the deck DOES NOT have to donk someone to win.

    Round 2: Ownage Man(Togekiss/Magmortar)
    He played my dad last week so I knew his deck... I start out with Pach, and T2 Clay... I get it and he gets T2 Magmortar/Clay.. he ko's pachy and I bring up Ho-oh.. I get a rare candy and Celio for a Togekiss.. I see that i still have 17 energy left in my deck.. I use Togekiss's power.. I only needed 4 because I had energy and PlusPower in my hand... I get 0 ENERGY :( by then I havd 17 Energy in a I think 36 card deck... so I end up getting owned in the face lol.... so maybe i DO have to donk to win..


    Round 3: Deck Out Man(Rhyperior/Absol/Claydol)
    He mulligans... I see rhyperior.. and cry a little... I know what I have to do.. I start with T2 dol BUT have 2 Night M and a TGW in hand... not good since he started with Absol... he passes I got get a candy UGGH.. I use pach for Togepi.Ho oh,and Baltoy... he discards both night m wooo >.> I draw use master ball and get a togekiss... I played it and get 6 energy(4 different) and I attach them to ho oh and swing away... I win easily

    Round 4: Electric Man(trode/amphy)
    I get a T2 Ho oh and ko his pachirisu... he uses electrodes double ko attack and I flip heads on Ho oh to stay alive... I win and he only draws 1 prize...

    Round 5: Grass Man(random grass deck)
    I just win.... lol

    So I see there is a guy with an all water deck and im like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Round 6: Water guy >.> (palkia/swampert/mantine)
    He T2's my togepi with Mantine... I bring up ho oh, claydol for 6.... toge/candy/kiss... gg easy from there


    Round 7: Justin C.(Kirstin's son) GG
    Simple: Winner in.. loser most likely out...
    He starts with Ralts.. me a baltoy... he does 10.. i draw pach.. retreat and attack with pach(that was my 2nd turn btw) and then he gets T2 Kirlia and im like NOOO... I lock in beach T2 and I get a turn or 2 to set up.. I get Ho oh out and then swing away and its easy from there.. gg GG

    so.. I made top cut with "Donk.dec"
    heres how T8 looks
    1. Chad(MagBlaze) v 8 Ownage Man(Magkiss)<<< only 5-2 to get in
    2. Sally guy(Sally) v TRUK(MagBlaze)
    3. Leo(Magkiss) v Me(Skittles)
    4. Andrew K.(GG) v Vire guy(Electivire)

    Now the Electivire guy doesn't know that Top 8 is about to start.. so we are waiting for him.. and then it takes him about 10 minutes to shuffle...
    Top 8 supposed to start at 6:30.. starts at 6:45....

    Top 8: Leo(Magkiss)

    Game 1:We both know this isn't going to last very long.. We both get T2 claydol and I get a T2 kiss and take the first prize.. he gets T3 kiss and ko's my Ho oh, but I flip heads woo... so i ko him back then he ko's me and I flip heads... then i do 100.. he ko's me.. tails... I ko him with Togekiss.. he bring up a Mag X then ko's me and my other ho oh only has 3 energy.. and he wins.. 2 prizes to 0.. gg

    Game 2: He gets T2 two claydol.. togekiss.. and magmortar... I put his pach to sleep.. then I get a turn because luckily I got another basic in play...I ko his pachirisu with ho oh.. he kos me with magmortar.. I look at his bench.. there is nothing too fearful on it.. and if I flip heads on this ho oh... i had energy+PP to OHKO this magmortar...I flip tails... I really had nothing on the field.. he wins 4 prizes to 0.. gg's

    I get my packs... 2 CRESSELIA UGGGGGGGGH

    Well... I had a good time and lots of people ther were saying GJ on using a deck that was thought just to be a giant donk(and I'm sure there will be posts saying it's still a donk) and that's fine... However, it's not that the deck IS a donk, it's just that it CAN AND DOES outspeed more than 60% of the format and allows you to give them the early beatdown.

    Well, thanks for reading

    ^yes because the California format is everything.. Id say it was 30% GG... 30% Mag... 40% rogues... and in the last round only like 4 GG players had a chance to make it to top cut

    Love the deck...because I'm using it too. I have a version of Togekiss/Ho-oh that I play at the league. I really like it, and it's AWESOME to get every type of basic energy on Ho-oh and do 140 damage. You run plus powers? Thats interesting. I thought about them, but without any way to search for them, I didn't end up using them. I see you ran yours more like a traditional deck with claydol and pachi. I actually run mine with Porygon2 and Mantine and using Porygon2 to use multiple tv reporters and then put the energy back into my deck with Mantine. You use Claydol to put the energy back into your deck. Claydol is probably the better idea.

    Good job!

    kirby: ty and congrats on gettin 2nd!
    crono: u do lol
    OSP: ty
    Kazam: oh well my bad for not winning lol

    Prime: I use pluspowers because of he odd HP of Gallade and Magmortar.. pluspowers helped me a lot in getting OHKO's on magmortar with only 5 energy instead of 6.. and against gallade it can really help for the same reason
