@willcompere As we've been discussing, having the capacity to get around something isn't the same as being prepared for it. I often annoy people by reminding them that tech was coined for something pretty specific, and this is kind of why the original definition was useful. A lot of decks don't need a "tech" against this... because it won't do them any good. A single card "trick", run because it wins you more games than it costs you, is tech. It can be a counter, but only if what it is countering can be dealt with through a single card reasonably well. Throwing up your Blastoise to take down Pyroar is pretty risky; if your opponent is running Pyroar as a TecH (yes, the definition relaxed to include things like a 1-1 Stage 1, as that is the minimum card count to run it) you're good. A 2-2 or better line backed by the rest of a deck? Blastoise might not be enough. Plus... is there any evidence that Mega Pokémon-EX are going to be good enough to warrant competitive play? So far the best looks to be Kangaskhan and Blastoise; the former is flippy and the latter is outclassed by Keldeo EX and Black Kyurem EX.
