Bio: My name is Pablo Meza, also known as Tablemon, and I’m a Pokémon TCG player from Mexico who currently holds the title of 2016 Mexican National Champion. Aside from that, I’ve had my fair share of success at an international level, where some of my biggest accomplishments include a 3rd place at Worlds 2005 with the infamous Queendom deck, and 7th place at the most recent Worlds 2017 with Gardevoir-GX. I’ve been playing this game competitively since Pokémon took over back in 2003, albeit at varying degrees of competitiveness due to life/school/work but as of today, I am amongst those who play this game as a professional.

Mew 1 and Mew 2

Comparing Winning Mew Boxes, Which One To Play, and Other Options for Knoxville
Hello 6P! I’m happy to be back with another article right before our next Regional Championship: Knoxville! Unfortunately, I will not be attending this one either, even though hearing about Atlantic City and seeing friends do well there had me wishing I was. Travel Awards have finally been confirmed for the Latin America International Championships, […]

Stampede!

On Countering Ability ReshiZard, Another Reset Stamp PikaRom, and GardEon v. ReshiZard
Hello 6P! I’m back for another article with our brand new site layout just deployed! I know Adam worked really hard on it and it’s fitting to start a brand new season with a brand new layout! We have three major events right around the corner, all on the same weekend: Atlantic City, Cologne, and […]

Fairy Fairly Good

Sheffield’s Results, On Robin’s T8 Ability ReshiZard, GardEon Guesses, and My Mew Box List for Atlantic City/Köln
Hello 6P! Welcome back to another article! Sheffield Regionals just took place this past weekend and we had some very cool, albeit not surprising, results. If you recall from my last article, I put out a tier list which I firmly believe is correct. Now, let’s take a look at the Top 8 players and […]

And We’re Off

Mew Box and the New ‘Zard, Malamar for Cups, Tiers, and Worlds Recap w/ PikaRom
Hello 6P! Welcome back to another article by yours truly! Worlds has come and gone in what seemed like a flash to me, and as usual, it was a great time! I decided to play PikaRom in the end, as Malamar felt unreliable and Fire M&M’s didn’t seem quite stable enough, even though when it […]

Let the Teching Begin

On the Best Finish Limits for 2019–2020 and My Current Top 3 Decks for Worlds
Hello there 6P! We’re in the final countdown for Worlds, as we are now under two weeks out from the event! I’m getting excited about it after a roller coaster of a season, which began with me forgetting to write down my Supporters at LAIC to accumulating over 1,000 CP in the span of four […]

Fire M&M’s

Mewtwo & Mew-GX with Welder and Attackers for Worlds/DC Open and What’s Good in UPR-on
Hello 6P! Welcome back to another article of mine in which I must say, I have a lot to talk about. First off, the 2019–2020 Regionals schedule for North America is finally out and seeing all the cool new locations got me excited about the upcoming season! I’m definitely going to be attending the first […]

Starting with Squid

On the Unified Minds Set List and Malamar Adapted for UPR-on
Hello 6P! July has come and the 2019–2020 season is now in full swing. We have League Cups and Challenges already happening all over the world, and I myself played in a Cup this past weekend. I didn’t do too hot, as I whiffed Top 8 playing Green’s ReshiZard. I chose to play this deck […]

The First Circle of…Well…

UPR-on ReshiZard, Predicted Trends for UPR-on, the Transition Period (Goodbye, Cards…), and a Succinct NAIC Recap
Hello again 6P! NAIC just finished and we had a very interesting tournament all around. Sadly though, attendance decreased at the event for the first time since the International Championships were first introduced. I would attribute this to a couple of factors, with the most important being the high Championship Points bar for the World […]

Moving Squid-ward

On ReshiZard’s Dominance, the (Mostly) Failed Attempts to Counter ReshiZard, and a Potential Savior, Malamar, in Two Flavors (Standard and Techy)
Hello again 6P! I’m happy to be back with another article for you people as we are now drawing closer to the end of the season. We only have two weekends of Pokémon left, which include the Origins SPE, Brazil SPE, South Africa SPE, Sweden Regionals, and finally the big kahuna: NAIC. ReshiZard Dominates So […]

Gas for the Fire

Thoughts on My Winning ReshiZard List, What to Change, and a Meta Counter (Zoroark/Slowking) for Madison
Hello 6P! I’m back for another article where we discuss all things Pokémon! You might’ve heard that I won the São Paulo Regional Championships with Reshiram & Charizard-GX! I’ll be honest and tell you I was ecstatic for that win. Not only has it been over a year and a half since I last won […]

Striking the Flint

On Unbroken Bonds, Fire, and Two Early ReshiZard Decklists (One Straightforward/T1 Kiawe, One Flexible/Support)
Hello 6P! It’s been a hot minute since my last article, and we’re in the final stretch of the season with Hartford in the books. There are only two North American Regionals left, alongside a handful of SPEs and other Regionals around the world. We’re finally done with Expanded until next season though, which makes […]

A Good Thing Going

PikaRom and Hoopa/Umbreon for Berlin/the EUIC, and Unbroken Bonds Favs
Hello 6P! I’m back with another article and this time I am writing it all the way from London! I came to Europe a bit early due to flight availability, costs, and also to catch a soccer match of my all-time favorite team, Chelsea, while I was here. There are no direct flights from Mexico […]

Mile-High Surprises

Highlighting Denver’s Unexpected Standouts: Bodybuilding/Zoroark Control, Draw/Celebi & Venusaur-GX, and Order Pad/PikaRom
Hello 6P! Welcome back to another article! We just wrapped up Denver this weekend, with some incredibly interesting and peculiar results. I managed to get Top 16 at the event, where I had a small chance at making Top 8 had I won my last round, but my resistance would’ve put me at 9th or […]

It’s Electric

A Complete Run-Down of All Six Major Lightning-Type Decks in Standard for Denver (Pure Zapdos, Turbo PikaRom, Lycanroc/Zapdos, Zapdos/Ultra Beasts, Jolteon/Zapdos, and PikaRom/Zapdos)
Hello 6P! I’m back for another article as we finish a super busy month of March with tons of events all over the world: four Regionals, each in different countries, and two Special Events. I myself attended two of these: Toronto Regionals and, more recently, El Salvador SPE. I’ve already given you the rundown on […]

Mirror, Mirror (Counter) in the Sky

The Greensboro Meta, Popular Decks, We’re Seeing Shifts, and Detailed Analysis of the Winner, Garbodor/Drampa-GX/Sigilyph-GX
Hola 6P! We just got done with back-to-back weekends of Expanded with Toronto and Greensboro. Both tournaments featured a lot of exciting things, and, surprisingly, both were won by unexpected decks. While Toronto featured Pikachu & Zekrom-GX as the most popular deck, Greensboro was taken over by Archie’s Blastoise featuring two other TAG TEAMs: Magikarp […]
