A Closer Look at Bees!

Today we look at Vespiquen Flareon a bit more in depth.

02/18/2016 by Clayton Lahodny

Today, we are going to look at Vespiquen Flareon as a whole, individually, and in portions. We'll look at its pro's and con's, favorable and unfavorable matchups, and streangths and weaknesses.



Vespiquen and Plasma Flareon combine very well together, as their attacks: Bee Revenge and Vengeance do the exact same thing! Lets take a close look at Vespiquen, to start.

Vespiquen is a 90HP Grass Type Stage 1 Pokemon. It is weak to fire, which lets it get knocked out by a muscle-banded Flame Screen from Entei. Because of its low HP, it will get knocked out by Heat Tackle regardless of weakness. Vespiquen's first attack: Intelligence Gathering,  does 10 damage and lets you draw until you have 6 cards in hand. It's other attack, Bee Revenge, does 20 damage, plus 10 damage for each Pokemon in your discard pile. There are multiple ways to power this up, such as Battle Compressor, Ultra Ball, Acro Bike, Computer Search, and Professor Sycamore/Juniper, all cards to discard cards. If we use these cards, along with cards like Trainers' Mail, VS Seeker, and Double Colorless Energy, we can power up Vespiquen with 1 energy attachment AND have enough cards in the discard pile to use Bee Revenge. Now let's look at Plasma Flareon.

Plasma Flareon is a 100HP Fire Type Stage 1 Pokemon.  It has a weakness to water, so things like Seismitoad-EX's Quaking Punch attack will knock out Flareon with a Muscle Band. It's first attack, Vengeance, does 20 damage, plus 10 damage for each Pokemon in your discard pile. This attack is just like Vespiquen's Bee Revenge attack, which has the same effect. Using the cards mentioned in Vespiquen's overview, these cards make a serious combo that can be hard to deal with.




Good matchups for this deck include: Primal Groudon-EX, Primal Kyogre-EX, Wailord-EX, Seismitoad-EX/Garbodor.


Bad matchups for this deck include: Manectric-EX, Yveltal-EX, Giratina-EX, Landorus-EX/Crobat, Seismitoad/Crobat, Promo Jirachi.


This deck is very fast and powerful, all at once. If it sets up turn 2, then the game is pretty much over. A consistent decklist will win 90% of the time, as the other 10% is random tech against this deck, like Vileplume or Trevenant. Overall, this deck is probably the best deck around right now.
