    Nice video, like always. You played Shuppet again? Well, 3-2 is a good result. Yes, your Dialga G/Garchomp C is pretty awful, that’s why I play 2-2 Blaziken FB Lv.X in my Shuppet deck, yeah it’s less consistency (Only a little), but it does well against Dialga G. Pooka is a pretty good deckbuilder though. If I can get any Dialga G, it may be my last CC deck. Keep up those great videos dude!

    That last part almost made me shed a tear. The background song for it really matched the mood.

    Shuppet! Love the deck. Tried it out at league and it is just genious.

    But Dialga! No! Why must such a retched and disgustingly good deck be alive on this earth? If only it wasn’t such a good play for the overall format, then there would be a smaller chance of running into ‘the Wall’ at cities.

    Yeah, I think Dialga/Garchomp (w/ or w/o Luxury) will be the deck to play (or beat) for Cities.

    I think I may play Shuppet Donk the entire season. Being that I judge here and there, that statement doesn’t mean much, as I get to play in 2 BR/ 1 CC a year.

    Good video once again! The humor is great.

    KEEP IT UP!

    I think Blazeray is the obvious choice to beat Dialga. It’s been doing well, but you just need to have experience with the deck vs. all the different matchups out there, along with a quasi-perfected list.

    Great vid, well put together. Your report, the music, and the short interviews flowed nicely.

    @ Soul– yeah, blaziken is the obvious answer– perhaps too obvious for super skill player Pooka. He uses the garchomp C to KO the blaziken FB before it can level up :0. Having the tech at hand in a lot of different decks seems to be an important option to look at these days!

    @ Dusk– I believe this was a rec room at the Rantoul Public Library

    @ Matthew R– You’re not the first person that’s told me that! I’m glad my videos have such a positive effect : D.

    I believe it’s the garchomp that makes dialgia playable again. It’s a very frustrating deck because of how good it is. You HAVE to one-shot dialgia otherwise the player will use switch/warp energy to the chomp and heal all the damage. Well, the natural counter to that seems to be blaziken, which he deals with by using garchomp’s snipe. Arg! lol. Right now I’m looking into some kind of palkia-blaziken deck, as maybe power locking can hold him for long enough to win.

    Shuppet is a barrel of fun, which is why I had to try it out one last time : D. (or is it the last?)

    Quaziko– thanks for all the kind words! I’m working hard with Blaziken/ANYTHING to find the right combination for me. I might try to take machamp next week too, but that’s a bigger risk.

    Hey J Wittz another good video. I loved the part about robbing the kid, and the interviews, along with the tournament report.

    Please keep it up, its awesome.

      glad to hear you liked everything! I was so tired I can’t even remember why we were talking about robbing kids :P. As always, I’ll be sure to keep it up :D

    Once again really nice video and I really like the effects of the videos and the canvas of the action on the play mat. Also disappointed you played Shuppet again.

    • J-Wittz  β†’ Clinton

      haha I thought “oh this is a scrub area and shuppet cleans up scrubs like no other”– but then the good players from indiana came D:. Shuppet’s fun, but it’s too dumb for a smart player like me to play!

      I’m trying, for the first time, to get good with sp builds. I’m trying as many different combinations as I can to counter Dialgia/Garchomp, but nothing seems to be working. You’re an SP player, chan! What kinds of builds have you been messing with?

    I especially like the way you did match recaps, that was really innovative.

      thanks a ton again for hosting, Adam! Youtube recently contacted me about hosting ads on my videos, so hopefully I’ll get paid in some way to produce this stuff now! :D

      CONGRATS MAN!!

      That’s seriously so awesome! I’m really glad for you. :) It’s extremely difficult to get to that point.

      They’ll probably also let you do videos longer than 10 minutes now too.

  12. Robin Gimbel

    Nice video ;)

    Can you say more about what techs Pooka is use in his Garchomp/Dialga Deck?

    Try myself but find no room for more than one toxicroak promo..

    • J-Wittz  β†’ Robin

      he had the fighting toxicroak, warp energies, snowpoint templer, conductive quarry, and the psychic toxicroak/skuntank. There are probably more crazy things in there too, but those are what I remember.

    Yeah he’s got a 2-1 Garchomp line I’m fairly sure. He took the Milwaukee cities, undefeated.

    Great video!! Can you type out what Richard Lucas says in the intro?? It’s hard to hear the last few things…

    • J-Wittz  β†’ Colin

      I’m glad you like it! Richard says something like “I have learned to pick my battles, and here’s another secret: happy wife, happy life”

    I admire your great sportsmanship and humility, I need to work on that, i’m a sore loser, especially at Citys. =p

    • J-Wittz  β†’ Mark

      I’m glad to hear I have so many fans already! :D. Sportsmanship is tough when the matches get close or you get donked or something. It’s a shame–but after all, I WAS running a no-skill deck that prays off cheap KOs :P. I guess my rating still goes up, so that’s cool!

      I’m spending lots of time trying to figure out what to play at the next event. There’s a TON of sp out there–what’s a good counter these days? Thanks for all your advice!

      I Think the 2-1 line is needed for a guy like pooka because he’s the ultimate tech-er. He prefers a small drop in consistency for a high gain in the usage of his techs. A 2-2 is still a mighty solid choice. I’ll definitely cover a video on this at some point!

    Nice video! I made a dialga garchomp deck and I can say it’s pretty awesome! The only thing I have trouble with is the gyrados matchup. It might be bacause we have a good list or I need work, but its tough because gyarados does so much damage. Only a perfect setup would give me the advantage and that’s if they aren’t running Palkia (which they should be). Shuppet is a great deck and I would not put a blaziken in it. If anything shuppet more than any other deck needs the most consistency because of it’s already high-risk nature. It’s a nice win when it doesn’t work and truly annoying when it does work.

    @elvis– I’m confused as to what you are saying!

    @kwisdumb– thanks a ton! I’m glad to hear how positively people are responding to my reports : D

    @ben– I actually find DG to be pretty good vs. gyarados if they can get the X with a bunch of special steel right away. Gyarados needs to do the 90+ 30 damage of crobats/pluspower/expert belt + an additional 10 damage for each special steel. If you don’t one shot them, then they can do the whole garchomp heal thing. Although, just thinking about gyarados makes me want to try it out again : D. I’m just worried about getting donked :0

    Hi !

    Great video, thx for it !

    I think that DG can easily beat Gyarados, cuz if you knock out Gyarados via Deafen than Gyarados player cant play pkmn rescue, NM or anything else (but Palmer and it is very slow imo and who knows how many Gyarados variants play it) and than he cant beat you imo.

    BTW whats point of Kingdra / Flygon deck ?

    • J-Wittz  β†’ Charlie

      knocking out Gdos via deafen is quite a feat though! And even if they do, there’s a new tech these days in combee with the “honey” tool attached that acts as a pokemon rescue : P. Im trying out gyarados again regardless because I think I owe it to my viewers to play it at least once : P

      the text is this:
      flip two coins, if one of them is heads, draw a card. if both of them are heads, search your deck for any 1 card and put it in your hand.

      you can only get it from winning a battle roads. If you don’t own any, I suggest using quick ball instead
