Make a swapert decklist


Cool but also odd playmat in my opinion

Ei - on says:

Wailord tank game. Don’t need to attack with it but it is nice to have 230 base health on a stage 1 with a nice chunk of damage if you can manage the set up.

DapperDraBy says:

Stop giving away my secret deck. I’m all about that manectric/swampert


I th8nk getting the two metang was a mis play unless the metegross was prized

TristenPence says:

The optimal prerelease kit would be swampert and articuno gx to counter swalot and to just be good

Audrey Majors says:

You guys should try to find older prerelease kits from XY block or older. I think it would make for a good video

Old MB = New GB, old GB is new nest ball

Played Swampert/Kyogre with 2-1 Swalot and it worked pretty well. Except when I played against a Septile and couldn’t get any other pokes powered up(bench out loss. didn’t pull any fire type to counter). And Mr. Mime GX wasn’t much fun since I only hit big even damage (except for Dual Splash) (tied). Still. I think it went pretty well. That energy searching Mudkip is not to be underestimated. Fun games mostly.

This video helped a lot, especially when I decided to do the Swalot line. Definitely worth it to stall a bit to get my attacker setup.

playmat ordered

Hey great video Mann really enjoyed it. I got the Celesteela pre-release pack and I didn’t pull any other good pokemon either so I went with the Metagross / Swalot / delcatty / Celesteela. I did pull a few good extra supporters / items though in my booster packs (Super scoop up, Switch, Tate & Liza, friend ball). My deck went 2-1 and I rate the Swalot it slowed down the game giving me time to build up my metagross or allowing you time to use Swalot 2nd attack for 120. 🙂 My extra supporters + Delcatty’s ability did help me to switch my pokemon around though which you needed to make any use of Celesteela (that was my worst pokemon). 🙂

It Feels bad mahone.. you were 0-3 last pre-release event.. and now 0-2 against nathalie.. and that swampert.. damn..

SignahOfficial says:

Robert Newman says:

Nadav sc says:

swampert is basically keldeo ex in draft form

Brian Erickson says:

So far got Articuno GX and after Eletrode GX. Still one more day

Red_Ninja_Red says:

You not doing the pack trick bothers me

thomas rowe says:

Have you considered recording your pokemon cube drafts and games? As someone who comes from magic and loves cube drafting in that game I would love to see it in action in pokemon as well

TristenPence says:

When you open rare candy swampert at prerelease in the opening hand. GG

Vortex Go Viral says:

Swampert was not busted I played metagross and Manetrick and got
