Deck List Dump: Unlimited Crobat G Jolteon* spam


Headed back to school today, so no elaboration or explanation…Just enjoy it for all it's worth.

Pokemon (14):

4 Spiritomb AR
4 Crobat G PL
1 Uxie LA
1 Jolteon * HP
1 Duskull SF (secret holo)
1 Pidgey RG
1 Holon's Magnemite
1 Unown Q MD

Trainers/Stadiums/Supporters (46):

4 Professor Oak
4 Scoop Up
4 Super Scoop Up
4  Team Galactic's Invention G-105 Poke Turn
4 Computer Search
4 Poke-Drawer+
4 Junk Arm
4 Item Finder
4 Erika
4 Mr. Fuji
4 Pokemon Collector
1 Seeker
1 Alph Lithograph FOUR

Energy (0):


Strategy is pretty simple: spam a million Crobat G "Flash Bite" damage counters until you've won. Between Scoop Up, SSU, Item Finder, Junk Arm, Mr. Fuji, Poke Turn, and Seeker, you get an extra 250 damage available to you in addition to the fifty you started with via Jolteon and Crobat G.

Many of the tweaks in here are very, very metagame oriented, so proceed with caution.

For more variety, consider running a tech Zapdos MD. I used to run a Zapdos "decK" for unlimited pickup games at Worlds 2007 and Worlds 2008, but that deck is largely inferior to this due to the constant flipping you have to do (i.e., the risk you put yourself at). However, it could still be decent as a 1- of for situations where you've got lots of Pokemon to deal with (as a rule of thumb, Zapdos MD is statistically "better" whenever your opponent has three or more Pokemon in play…But it's not worth the risk unless they've got four or more).

P.S. Today's post was brought to you by…Some random people who make aluminum house decks:

Deck List Dump: Donphan, TS-2

This section, entitled "Deck List Dump," will be used whenever I either can't think of anything else good to type about, or am otherwise unwilling. I don't guarantee that the lists will be 100% amazing; however, there won't be vomit-inducing theme decks, and they will almost certainly give you a new perspective you might not have considered.

I intend to post my next four CC tournament reports for the next few days after this, but for now, consider this relatively rogue approach to 'Phan:

Pokemon (16):

4 Phanpy HS
4 Donphran Prime HS
4 Uxie LA
3 Crobat G
1 Mesprit LA

Trainers/Stadiums/Supporters (34):

4 Broken Time-Space
4 Pokemon Collector
4 Bebe's Search
4 Super Scoop Up
4 Poke Turn
4 Junk Arm
3 Pokemon Communication
2 Technical Machine TS-2
2 Expert Belt
2 Warp Point
1 Luxury Ball

Energy (10):

10 Fighting

If you want a good matchup versus Luxchomp, yet a competitive game versus evolution decks, then this is certainly a viable option. However, even with TS-2, the Gyarados game is rough, so you may consider 2 Bubble Coat, 4 Poke-Drawer/1 Bubble Coat, or a 1-1-1 Exploud SV line.
