By Flygon999 Here Team Candy-Eating Eevees (TC-EE) will explain why M&Ms will become Archetypes. Well, first off, they are very good. Why? Because there are 7 different evolutions of Eevee and 6 different types. You can know what the current Metagame is and just choose which of the 6 different types of Eeveelutions that you want to use. For example: G&G and Magmortar are really popular so, I will use Glacion and Espeon. Just tech in Stregth Charms/Plus Powers and Lake Boundarys and your good to go. Claydol and Phione: Since there are many different Evolutions of Eevee, you will need Claydol for consistancy. Also Phione to even get to your Claydol. If you have time, use Phione to get out the kind of Evolution of Eevee that you want. Just see what deck your opponent, find there weakness, then you will know which of the Evolutioins that you want to use on your Eevee. Trainers of the Deck: Premier Ball will help because there are 2 different Lv.X's in the deck. Glacion Lv.X and Leafeon Lv.X. Premier Ball helps to snatch out those Lv.X's right away when you need and with Claydol it's even better. Bebe's Search will be used also. Because, with Claydol, you can get rid of a card opening up an extra space to get 1 more card with Claydol's Cosmic Power. Steven's Advice will be handy because: Many people are using Pachirisu. That way, it allows you to draw extra cards with Steven's Advice. Steven's Advice is also good because you will normally have 6 or less cards in your hand because Claydol's Poke-Power. Glacion/Lv.X: It is the main attacker of the deck and is the best tech for against Magmortar. Regular Glacion has helpfull attacks for bad situations. Why? Because, the first attack can allow you to stall if you are not set up and need more time. The second attack can let you go through Resistance, Lucario Lv.X's Poke-Power Stance, and many other things. The Lv.X of Glacion has a broken Poke-Body. While Glacion Lv.X is active, your opponent may not use ANY Poke-Powers. Not only that, he does 70 damage for 3 energys and with the coin flip, can allow you to hit the bench for 20 each. That's 170 damage right there if your opponenet has 6 Pokemon in play. Leafeon/Lv.X: These are broken for the Poke-Power. Regular Leafeon has average attacks but the Lv.X has an awsome Poke-Power allowing you to attach any additional energy a turn. Not just a basic grass energy, but any energy. Espeon: Usually attacks if against a G&G deck. If not up against a G&G deck, he's still very helpfull because it gives all of your Eeveelutions and extra +20 HP. Umbreon: Rarely attacks. Usefull if you have to send up your Leafeon Lv.X and then retreat it. It techs against Banette [SW]. Eevee: And last but not least, this little guy. A start with Eevee will let you collect all other Eevees. Therefor, M&Ms will become Archetypes and expect to see plenty of these at Battle Roads and possibly Nationals. You can see a lot of lists already in the Deck Help and St rategy Forum. By Arceus999: Eeveelutions, or M&Ms, will, in my oppinion, become an Archetype. While their are many sceptics, I want to state my reasons WHY I think Eeveelutions will be an Archetype. A) From my testing, Eeveelutions has a pretty strong matchup against G&G/PLOX. Glaceon Lv.X will rip through it, and Glaceon Lv.X should be your priority, followed by Espeon, then Leafeon Lv.X, and finally Umbreon. Umbreon can also be set up at the same time as Leafeon, but anyway, back on topic. Glaceon Lv.X not only spreads damage so that Gardevoirs/Gallade are more in KO range, and helping against Bring Down, it also stops Telepass, Teleportation, and Dark Palm. All of which are key parts in G&G's strategy. Oh, and also Claydol. B) There is SO MUCH synergy between the 4 Eeveelutions (Leafeon Lv.X, Glaceon Lv.X, Umbreon, and Espeon). Espeon gives +20 HP to Eeveelutions, which helps against Bring Down, and also obviously increases how long the Eeveelutions live. Also, G&G has Weakness to it, so you can abuse Lake Boundary here. Umbreon gives Free Retreat, which can be very helpful in swarming with Eevees, and no Weakness, which can also be very useful, to stop Magmortar from absolutly destroying all the Leafeons you send up. It also can stall with Confusion, and Banette and Dusknoir have Weakness to it. Leafeon Lv.X speeds up Energy Acceleration, attaching an Energy from your hand, and can easily be doing 130 damage. Glaceon Lv.X spreads damage, setting up KOs, 2HKOs everything played, AND stops Powers. On top of that, Magmortar has Weakness to it. C) It's very consistent, due to Eevee's Call For Family attack. It allows you to get out Eevees fast, so half the work is done. Then, Ceilio's, Claydol, and Premier Ball take it all the way. Also, everything except for Claydol Evolve from the same thing, so... Also, here's some things about the deck... CLAYDOL IS A MUST! You need this card, it helps with consistency soooo much. Without it, I don't think the deck could function very well. Beach is GREAT! Slow down your opponent's Energy Accel! No Starter other then Eevee is needed! Since Eevee sets you up so well, you really don't need another Starter. Phione is the only viable one.
