    I just started testing this deck today. I really like it. Alot. Except...Luvdisc. I cringe when I have to start with it. The battle goes SOOOO much better when you start aqua showering on T2, otherwise, its much harder to pull ahead. I'm gonna try with CG Mawile.

    Not really :frown:. DP4 has Lapras that does castaway, thats interesting. Maybe it will be better than Luvdisc.

    It left the Modified format, now it's HP-ON.
  8. After changing a few cards David came up with this for his ambush to win three cities in Jr. division. Not sure if it will work for other division since the deck is a little weak. He wants to try as many decks as he can to be ready for the tough competition that he will face at State and Regionals so this deck is now retired for him. Whats funny is how the deck sleeves had Mario in it to start with during BR. than changed out the Machamp line up with the help of Shaw for Empoleon. Then he took out the Lucario line up for the Electric line up to beat all the DWD he had been running into. He wants to move on and play a different deck every week. So time well tell what he plays next. So this deck needs something stronger if anyone else wants to try his ambush but he would like to offer it up to people that might want to try it.

    ^ You know Shaw? He helped get me and my bros. started last jan.

    Any way, I personly think that Empoleon works best with Lucario. The nrg is so much easier to do, than most think.

    What did the Original Ambush look like? As you all know, I am a HUGE Empo player, but I jsut wanted to see how the deck came about!

    I really liked this article as my hubby is an Empoleon fan. I am the fire fan so he kills me when we play at home. But anway, I like your breakdown and the card pics...makes it so much easier to understand! I like it...GJ!

    If my memory serves correct, the original ambush was used first at last year's Nats and was Empoleon/Marowak D. Marowak complemented Empoleon's weakness, and was also a great damage spreader.

    4-3-3-1 empo dp/empo x
    2-2 marawak d or it was 3-3
    1-1 budew dp/roselia LM(such a good card)

    thats just a guess. Marawak was overlooked for spread. Raichu d was supposed to be like it,but no where near it.

    oh, okay! It used Empo X??? I am Surprised! Thanks Banette EX and Skull Bash!!! I have always respected the idea of Empoleon DP being Rogue play, which is AWESOME for me. I heard it was OVERly used at Nats too!!!

    Some didnt just because we had Wallys Training and you just aqua shwered until the first prinpulp died. then you just place with Empo/Scramble then you cleaned up with Marawak d/scramble. Combo was good,but I mean it was obvious.

    I still Love Empo DP! IMO, he is still VERY playable, especially NEXT format!

    So with Wally's you could evolve to Prinplup, then Wally's to Empo???

    You did NOT play Empoleon lv x mainly because you played 4 Cursed Stone.
