Hi there, 60cards readers! I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and New Years. I'm back yet again with a whole new article for you guys. First, I'll analyze ARG teammate and now 7 God, Michael Pramawat's 1st Place Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX list he used to win Memphis Regionals most recently, so shout out to him on winning the biggest Regionals to date yet again. Next, I'll then transition into how Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX looks in the Expanded format because the deck only gets more powerful. I actually played the same deck at Memphis as well, though my list was about four cards shy of Michael's.

I, unfortunately, hit a hurdle of Gardevoir-GX players. Three were my losses and another against the mirror match. I started my Memphis run with a record of 5-2-0, so I was looking good. In my eighth round I faced off against the Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX mirror and in game three time was called, so we decided whoever was up on prizes would take the series because a tie at this point was useless for both of us.

There was a turn where I basically had the game in the bag, though off an N to six, and Trade for two I whiffed an energy completely to be up on prizes against my opponent to basically go on with a record of 6-2-0 and essentially be in the win and in. Instead, I whiff the energy and concede to my opponent, as he was one prize ahead of me. The following round I hit my fourth Gardevoir-GX of the tournament and got pummeled. I don't know what it was, but my Gardevoir-GX opponent's (aside from one) ran hotter than the sun but that's a part of Pokémon so it is what it is. I still managed to get some pity points from top 256, making my CP total 362. I knew I played the correct deck for the tournament seeing how 9/32 decks in Day 2 were Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX with one ultimately winning the whole event, so I wasn't too salty. Chip Richey actually did an interview with Michael Pramawat on his YouTube channel, TrainerChip, so if you want to check it out I'll leave the video below. 

With that said, let's look at Michael Pramawat's Memphis Regionals winning list.
