Breakpoint: Gyarados Rages Through Deck Overview

The Dragon Rages on in red.

Welcome back poke fans, on this second deck overview, we will be focusing on the newly released Gyarados and Mega Gyarados EX cards. One of fan favorite finally got his EX and Mega evolution cards out in the new Breakpoint pack and we got just the deck for you to use in order to dominate your opponents.

Let’s take a look at what this list looks like:

Pokemon – 17

3 x Gyarados EX (Breakpoint)

3 x Mega Gyarados (Breakpoint)

1x Manaphy EX (Breakpoint)

1 x Palkia EX (Breakpoint)

1 x Lapras (Breakpoint)

1 x Articuno

3 x Seismetoad EX

2 x Remoraid

2 x Octilery

 

Energy Cards – 14

3 x Double colorless

4 x Special Water (Breakpoint)

7 x Basic Water Energy

 

Trainer Cards – 29

3 x Gyarados Spirit Link

3 x VS Seeker

1 x Archie’s Ace in the Hole

2 x Professor Birch’s Observatory

2 x Lysander

1 x Level ball

3 x Dive ball

2 x Puzzle of time

2 x Professor’s Letter

1 x Fury Belt

1 x Misty’s Determination

3 x Tierno

1 x Fisherman

2 x Skyla

1 x Max Elixer

1 x Rough Sea

Lets get under the hood and talk about this card list. The main focus here is making sure Gyarados EX is ready to go and evolve it when ready. He brings in a devastating force that few can handle and as a Mega can steamroll many Pokemon out there. With the traininer supporters, itll ensure that our Gyarados is not only strong but can withstand a lot of damage. Also, just in case were not fast enough to set up our main damage dealer, we have Seismetoad who by himself can handle a lot of decks.

This deck runs a few support Pokemon and the Octellery engine. Making sure we have cards in our hands is really good. Palkia can make sure energy is being fueled to our bench and the new Manaphy EX card will make easy for retreating Pokemon with no cost since they will all have water energies attached to them.

Lastly, rough seas will give us some good healing to all of our Pokemon and the special water energy cards will help us keep all the Pokemon in the case they die (manaphy and Palkia).

Breakpoint launches this Wednesday. Let us know in the comments below if you like this deck or not and in the case you don’t, what do you prefer to run with Gyarados, if run him at all.

    I like the decklist, pretty solid. However, I would personally swap Archie and Articuno for 1x Shaymin EX and a third Puzzle. Shaymin will provide that amazing draw power in case you run low on cards, which with this deck you shouldn’t have less than 2-3 at all times. As for the third puzzle, it will help with combos with Tierno and/or other puzzles. 3 Puzzles in my opinion is great for flexibility, especially since you are running 3x Tiernos. To a limit, I might even add a fourth by removing a spirit link.

      I would keep Archie, in a tight spot, he could get another octillery from the discard pile back on bench ready. Same goes for Seismetoad EX, it would allow for returned pressure. As for Articuno (BreakPOINT one), he’s good for the early setup. Starting with either Lapras, Palkia or Articuno is pretty solid early game imo.
