Stephen Silvestro on Pokemon
Diamond and Pearl Beatdown

18, 2007

Hey guys! Back after a long break, I am here to bring you the summary of a deck that hasn't won much - but has a lot of people talking.

I am talking of course about DP beat down. The deck consists of Lucario (Which I tend to refer to as Rufio, from the 90s rock band Rufio) and Machamp (PK and DP).

First let's look at the deck shall we?

2 Riolu
2 Lucario
4 Machop(DP)
2 Machoke (DP)
2 Machamp (DP)
2(Machamp (PK)
1 Lunatone(LM)
1 Solrock(LM)

12 Fighting
3 Double Rainbow Energy

Trainers 29:
4 Holon Transceiver
2 Holon Mentor
2 Holon Adventurer
1 Holon Farmer
1 Holon Scientist
4 Celio's Network
4 Rare Candy
4 Pluspower
1 Str charm
1 Castaway
1 Scott
4 Cursed Stone

There it is. A lot of people tend to go -1 Lunatone , -1 Solrock and +1 Riolu and +1 Lucario , But I don't like that. Lunalock helps the infernape match A LOT.

The key strategy is to use

To score a T2 KO of ideally Holon's Castform but anything weak to fighting works. As your building Machamps they will have to KO the Machop eventually allowing you to use Machamp's top attack for 70,


Infernape - 60-40
As long as you kept the Lunalock in this game becomes very winnable. Shut of their Energy Draw while you beat them down with Machops/Lucario

Metanite - 50-50
Getting a t2 KO is IMPERATIVE to winning this game. You CANNOT allow them to set up. If they get a dragonite swarm kiss this one good by.

Flygon /R-Gon  - 50-50
Basicially same as Metanite. Score a T2KO and build a machamp DP. If you can take 3-4 prizes before they get set you're a lock for a win.

Speed Spread - 70-30
Eevee Evolution Exs activate Overzealous poke-body combine that with the fact that you can OHKO their main pokemon , this game is a easy.

Well guys, that's going to be it for this one. It wasn't very long, but this is a VERY simple deck to run. Tweak the list to your liking and  combine that with the fact that is has a 50-50 vs. the top decks in the format I'd say to expect to see this once or twice at nationals.
