Hello 6p! I have noticed recently that there are many decks now that play Mewtwo LV.X and I have noticed many Luxchomp (and other SP players) players are having problems dealing with it. There are many counters for Mewtwo LV.X believe it or not but most end up ruining your consistency so much you are screwed after that.
pokemon-paradijs.comThis is the most common counter I see. Mismagius is so popular because for no energy you can discard up to 4 in any combination of Pokémon Tool and Technical Machine cards attached to each player Pokémon and it does 40 for each tool you discard. You already play Energy Gains and usually an Expert Belt depending on the build so you can get rid of 3 tools easy enough to do 60 damage.
Mismagius is a Psychic type so you only need to do 60 damage to one hit the Mewtwo LV.X as long as it still has weakness. Just remember if you choose this counter there is a great chance that you will ruin your consistence by discarding all those tools.
Medicham (Supreme Victors)
pokemon-paradijs.comThis is one I saw recently played at a Battle Roads. Medicham has an attack called “Chakra Punch” witch for one P Energy and two C Energy does 10 damage plus 10 more for each card in your opponent hand. This is a god choice because it really isn’t hard to fit in and doesn’t ruin your consistency one bit. The energy requirement really that bad when you think about it you can play a Psychic the turn before then drop a Double Colorless Energy or use Bronzong G’s “Galactic Switch” power to move a Double Colorless Energy or anther energy to it.
Another reason it fits in great is because most Luxchomp (and other Sp builds) already run a Psychic energy for Toxicroak G. Medicham is also a Psychic type so as long as Mewtwo still has a weakness your opponent only needs to have 5 cards in there hand witch isn’t a problem most likely. This is a good choice over Mismagius because it won’t ruin your consistency.
Mismagius / Porygon Z G Combo
pokemon-paradijs.comThis is a combo I have tested a bit and seems to work the best. Basically you just use Mismagius and take the cheep shot on Mewtwo by discarding Tools or Technical Machines, then after you discard the tools you just lay down Porygon Z G and use it’s “Dowsing Code” Poké-Power. It’s Poké-Power lets you pull 2-of those tools you discarded back and then you can lay them back down so you don’t ruin your consistency as much. Porygon Z G fits in great because it is a Pokémon Sp as well so it can easy be Poké Turned and used for other purposes too.
I hope that all the Luxchomp players out there can find a counter that they haven’t seen before and at least test it. I realize that Mewtwo isn’t a problem in every region either. Also a tip to all you Luxchomp players if you even suspect a Mewtwo in your area RUN A COUNTER! I don’t care what you say I have seen so many Luxchomp players that have said I can Knock Out Mewtow before it Levels Up this is true but not always possible.
I have see so many cases were the Mewtwo comes out turn one and then Levels up turn two. If that happens you have an auto-loss. I know there are plenty more counters out there but these are the main one I have seen and the ones that I have see be most effective.
