and here's mine and later (say in an hour) i'll pick apart the differences between our decklists 4Celebi (TR 92) 3Mewtwo EX (ND 98) 2Tornadus-EX (DE 90) 2Terrakion (NV 99) 1Smeargle (CL 21) 1Shaymin (UL 8) 4Professor Juniper (BW 101) 4Professor Oak's New Theory (HGSS 101) 4Junk Arm (TR 87) 3Dual Ball (CL 78) 2Skyarrow Bridge (ND 91) 4Switch (HGSS 102) 3Pokemon Catcher (EP 95) 2Super Scoop Up (BW 103) 4Random Receiver (DE 99) 2Eviolite (NV 91) 1Energy Search (BW 93) 1Energy Retrieval (BW 92) 4Double Colorless Energy (HGSS 103) 6Grass Energy (CL 88) 3Fighting Energy (HGSS 120) 1Mewtwo EX (ND 98) 1 Tornadus EX 1Terrakion (NV 99) 1Professor Oak's New Theory (HGSS 101) 2Super Scoop Up (BW 103) 2Random Receiver (DE 99) His differences Pokemon 1 Regigigas EX 1 Shaymin EX 2 Pluspower 1 Super Rod 2 N 1 Pokemon Catcher So the main differences in terms of catagories Terrakion Mewtwo EX tornadus EX vs Regigigas and Shaymin EX So this is the level of difference where it mostly comes down to personal preference. The third Mewtwo EX allows for a instant win button once one gets ahead by a sufficient amount. In the version that is trying to be more agressive this is extremely useful and important. Tornadus EX again improves the agressive approach, being of course one of the more powerful early game attackers. The 2nd terrakion while it has diminishing utility since the first gives great power while the second is a minor boost, again relies on an aggressive stance on the game. With 2 Terrakions you are trying to put pressure on Dakrai/Zeels, because a Terrakion is terrible unless it is supported by pressure from the rest of the pokemon. Regigigas EX meanwhile is a tank of a pokemon, it force the opponent to react and play a very different game. Since attacking into this beast with anything other than Terrakion NVI is scary. Most of the time, the opponent will try to Catcher around Regigigas EX and fight every other pokemon, Regigigas EX is not a wall of death, but what it does is force the opponent to play more defensive. because Regigigas's second attack OHKOS most things. Shaymin EX is a good Cleaner with N support. Shaymin EX can allow you to gain a endgame win combined with N if your opponent doesn't have the strongest Board. So on the broad scale it's a pure aggro version versus a more tricky plan 4th Pokemon Catcher and 2 Pluspower Vs 2 Super scoop up Super scoop up is a high Risk High reward card for getting back in close games. If the agression plan fails, in order to come back one needs to have a backup plan that can gain lots of tempo. Super scoop up provides that. Meanwhile the 4th catcher is good if you want to disrupt more. The 2 pluspower are good for random OHKOs like Tornadus EX OHKOing Smeargle with Blow through.
