William Hung on Pokemon
I've discussed the some of the main obstacles that you have to be able to deal with in order to win State Championships. This time, I will try to create a deck from scratch, and open up a discussion - mainly to figure out if the deck I've created can withstand the potential onslaught that State Championships and beyond will surely bring.
Burn Them Up! v. 1.0
4x Vulpix (HL - Ascension)
3x Ninetales ex (HL)
1x Ninetales (HL - Safeguard)
4x Magby (LM)
2x Lunatone (LM)
2x Solrock (LM)
2x Holon Mentor
3x Holon Transceiver
1x Holon Scientist
1x Holon Farmer
4x Full Flame
4x Swoop! Teleporter
4x Mary's Request
3x TV Reporter
1x Warp Point
This is considered a Lock deck. As you can see, My deck doesn't need Poke-Powers to win, and punishes decks that uses Magcargo, Pidegot heavily. You can also take out one of the less important trainers, such as TV Reporter, and add in a Girafarig to combat Zapdos ex/Rayquaza ex, if needed. This deck can be fairly versatile.
Trainer engine - I am using a "Holon" engine, because getting out key Pokemon out early is critical.
Also, I am winning the games generally by using the combination of Magby and Full Flame early, getting ahead in prizes, and clean up the rest of my opponent's Pokemon with Ninetales ex. Ninetales ex is very important, because it can choose one of your opponent's Benched Pokemon to Burn and Confuse (in conjunction with Full Flame), and setting up another Ninetales ex on the Bench to Fire Blast away.
The toughest matchup will be Queendom, followed by Rock Lock and Ludicargo, because they run Heal Energies, they have 120 HP Pokemon's, and ways to get out of trouble cheaply (i.e. Mr. Briney's Compassion). Machamp (LM) can be a serious problem as well. Once they load up on React Energies, they can One-Hit KO my Ninetales ex.
Nevertheless, this is still a very competitive deck for State Championships. My biggest concern, besides some of the obvious difficult match-ups, would be coin flipping. If you opponent can get a streak of Heads in the early going, you could be doomed too.
This is a rough draft, so don't bash me too hard. Please offer any suggestions and comments, as always:
Next time I will explore another innovative deck that can make a run for all the marbles. (Hint, hint - Worlds 06)
