    I agree that Palkia G may be the thing to look for with Lost World. Only time and play-testing will tell.

      I definately agree. With most, if not all, decks relying on benching ‘coming into play’ pokepowers, Palkia can send 2 pokemon to the lost zone and then lock. Maybe we’ll see some Palkia Lock being played now?

        I don’t think so. Its good, but they’ll easily be able to defend against it. I believe Spreadgar will become popular. Because they both revolve around Gengar Prime, you’ll have 2 win conditions!

          they confront on 2 fronts yes. but they work on different attacks. spreadgar would use cursed droplets while lostgar would use hurl into darkness. i do think the better option is cursegar with a gengar prime. when you would get the knock, switch to gengar prime instead of spiratomb to use catastrophe and lost zone them. this attacks on 2 fronts. and can trainerlock for a jority of the game. ill be trying that deck out.

          I have actually been working on a deck like you just mentioned, but my playtesting results came back rather negative: It’s way too slow. That, or I’m just playing against a lot of super speedy decks in my metagame. :P

        You could use palkia G to get rid of bench pokemon then use a seeker to get rid of more. Thats what I think is the best tactic.

    GREAT VIDEO!!! finally i see someone saying its overhyped. i mean its got twins speed. the only speed card in hgss-on. thats the only reason it does well in japan. its not too fast. but it still has a chance at shaking up the format for a few weeks. how could you leave honckrow SV out of techs for sps.

    Lost World + Gengar Prime will be soooooo hard to beat. We’d better find a counter ASAP
