    2-1-2 sceptile is the most you'll need.

    You better believe it man! We're talking about Torterra here!!!!!11!!!!!!!!111!!1!11111111!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, for the deck, I suggest less energy. 18 is a lot considering that you'll be using Sceptile to double your Energy cards most of the time. Maybe try 11-14 out. You'd need to do some testing to find the proper balance. The only thing is that if you go any lower than 11, it would take quite some luck to start with both a Pachirisu, and the Energy to use its attack. >_<

    mabye a Mawile CG for getting out Rare Candies?

    Sceptile Pop4 is awesome in here, it can move your Grass energys anywere and as many times in a turn you are waned to. You have too much of energy, 10 Basik and 2 DRE and 2 Boost are enough. More draw is also needed.

    Dont use Tortera with Sceptile.

    Tortara is a horrible card that should never see play. Tangrowth is MUCH better with Sceptile. An interesting idea I had was to use Sceptile /Tangrowth with a 2-2 sunflora tech,potion and leftovers AKA You NEVER DIE deck. It was kind of a joke at first but then I realized that if there wasn't Magmortar in the area it could actually work.

    i dont want to just give you a decklist, is better if you can work one out on your own, so i'll give you some hints :D

    you gonna need a lot more draw power, either pokemon or supporters, and a lot more wagers.

    you need the poke-body to make this deck work, you might want to run something that will take care of Castaway + Cessation Crystal combo, and Pacharisu is not a good choice.

    since you only run one Torterra Lv.x, you might want to find a way to brings that back once it gets KOed.

    even with it's 160HP, gallade can still drop it down to 50hp with 1 DRE and KO it next turn, you might also want to get something to stop that attack.

    all you need is 12 basic green energy, nothing else.

    you need 4


    no good unless you start with it

    even with out magmortar, the deck will still be a joke, tortara will out power that mop any day :)

    Torterra is not horrible. Believe it or not Torterra is just as strong as GG and Mag. The only reason Mag has more of a chance beating it is because of weakness. Ask for GG The best thing you can have when your up against it is to have two Torterra's out and ready to attack. Because even if they Sonic Blade one then you just bring up other and start using Leaf Storm. One of the best things about Torterra is that it can Heal itself and other Grass. Its because of this that makes Torterra Decks Does so well against Bench Hitters. With that said. Here is my advice for the deck.
    You dont really need POP4 Sceptile because you are not really running any pokemon like Exegutar or Tangrowth. What I would do is increase the Treecko Grovyle By 1. cause both are not bad cards. Also dont be afraid to attack with Sceptile. Just make sure you have two out or can get one really quick. Lower Energy down to at least 15. Ask for trainers The one trainer that i see that you dont have and you need at least 2 or 3 of it would be Night Maintenance. HAVE A NICE DAY!!!

    No, it doesn't. Tortara is a stage 2 that does 60 and heals 20 as its only attack. Tangrowth is a stage 1 that can snipe anyone for a ton, or do 60 and heal 50 (with leftovers and sunflora)

    It's easy to see which is better.

    ^ LOL at how Pokegym replaced my letters Q'F'T with that text XD

    Torterra being bad has nothing to do with its weakness. It is that it is a Stage two with two energy inefficient attacks. It just isn't worth playing. And it really isn't as easy as you think to get two charged Torterras in play during the GG matchup. Well, this is just my opinion.

    I'm actually going to have to agree with DarthPika on replacing Torterra for Tangrowth. It just fits better with Sceptile because of the errata.

    seems good magmortar would destroy this isnt ther a blastose tht takes away weakness?? if so u should run a 1-1 lin of him maybe
  19. Mew*

    Yeah, you're right about there being a Blastoise that blocks weakness, but do you know how hard it would be to get all this stuff setup? First you'll probably want a Sceptile up so you'll possibly be able to attack. Next you'll want the Torterra up. Then you'll want to be setting up a backup Torterra. THEN you'll struggle to setup a fourth Stage two that isn't even going to make the Magmortar matchup much better.

    I just think it would be so much work for such little benefit. You'd be better setting up a different Stage 2. Now again, just my opinion.

    I respect all opinion's about Torterra. And believe me its been hard to make a good deck of him. Its Even Hard beating GG and Magmortar decks and that alone is a challenge. But I have gained so much experience with battling these two decks that im Confident to enter a tornament and prove to everyone your in for a Challlenge! At least I have the element of the unexpected with the deck when i enter a tornament.

    Ask for advice on this deck try putting in a 2-2 Tangela & Tangrowth. HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE DAY!!!
