Strategy

With all of the Pokémon in the format that have abilities, it’s hard to look at this card and not think “Amazing”! This card absolutely obliterates Zoroark variants, Metagross/Necrozma, and Gardevoir, does fairly well against Espeon/Garbodor, but completely dies to Buzzwole. However, all decks have their weaknesses, so look on the bright side. A one prize attacker that can do 200 damage for one energy? Yes please!

Weavile BUS

Weavile BUS is a nice partner to run, as it follows the same rules: One energy, hits abilities, all that jazz. It can do some decent chip damage and guarantee a 1HKO on most everything.

Zoroark-GX

This card is a nice side attacker, as it allows you to deal damage to decks that don’t run abilities. It still dies to Buzzwole, but ehh, I think it’s good. As an added bonus, it gets to use Trickster-GX if it wants, where it can do some nice damage to decks it has a hard time with.

Other Techs

While building my list, I looked around at other similar decks, and saw some pretty cool comboes. For example, many decks ran Zoroark-BREAK, and I even saw YellowSwellow running Dusknoir. Not sure why, but check out the video.

Deck List

I will be going for a plain and simple Zoroark-GX variant, without a lot of techs. I will also be using the Zoroark from XY-BREAKthrough, but you don’t have to. I’m also running one Hoopa, simply to improve the Buzzwole matchup. If you want to run Bodybuilding Dumbbells instead of Choice Band, that works too, but I like the extra damage more than the health.
