Michael's Greninja BREAK deck comes with a little twist—the addition of a Jirachi that deals damage, forces Michael's opponent to discard a Special Energy, and protects itself from return attacks. That will certainly slow down his opponent for a while as Michael sets up a bench full of Greninja BREAK.
Espeon-GX has been a workhorse for a lot of teams at the North American Internationals and, as seen in Ryan's deck, often appears with Garbodor. The combination is certainly a winning one, propelling Ryan to the top of the leaderboards.
Flareon is an interesting addition to Kendon's Espeon-GX and Garbodor deck, turning these Stage-1 Pokémon into Fire-type Pokémon when Flareon is in play. It won't make a difference against many decks, but if Kendon runs into a Metagross-GX or an unlucky Decidueye-GX... watch out.
Sudowoodo is a simple way to slow down Bench-dependent blasts such as Mega Rayquaza-EX's Emerald Break attack. We saw plenty of that Pokémon in the field, so it looks like William made the right call to include Sudowoodo in his Garbodor deck.
Preston's Mega Gardevoir-EX is joined by several friends old and new: Hoopa-EX and Absol have seen their fair share of play for more than a year, while newcomers Oricorio and Tapu Lele-GX are sure to be staples in decks for a while to come.
Yveltal and Darkrai-EX have been around in the Standard format for a long time, but few have figured out how to truly stop the Darkness-type duo. Jon's deck includes the Altar of the Moone Stadium card, a perfect fit to help his team of Darkness-type and Psychic-type Pokémon move around the board.
Isaac's deck includes only two Stage-1 Pokémon—the rest are Basic Pokémon, meaning less time setting up and more time attacking. Max Elixir also helps Isaac get going quickly by (hopefully) retrieving extra Energy per turn.
As a former Junior Division World Champion, Rowan certainly knows what it takes to win on the biggest stages. Once again he and his Zoroark BREAK deck are poised for a major victory.
