Hello, Some1sPC fam! I'm super excited to premiere my first article today, and with it my absolute pride and joy within Pokémon currently: “Egg Splat” Exeggutor. In this article, I am going to cover the deck thoroughly, including all of its match-ups in preparation for the upcoming Hartford Regional Championships. Hopefully, you find this guide helpful in the case that you decide to play this amazing deck.
Firstly, I would like to cover some brief history of “Egg Splat,” and how I came to build the deck. Once the scans for Team Up were released, I stumbled upon the “Egg Splat” attack from this new Alolan Exeggutor. There seemed to be little to no excitement around this card, as most people were preparing for the new Tag Team GX Pokémon to enter the Standard format. Having already decided my play for the then-upcoming Standard Collinsville Regional Championships, I decided to focus on the string of the four Expanded Regionals to come: Toronto, Greensboro, Daytona, and Hartford. Thus, “Egg Splat” had been the only thing on my mind. Looking at the attack, the obvious synergy between Exeggcute PLB and Double Dragon Energy were apparent. Soon after, I realized that 240 could be achieved through Ditto Prism Star and, like a train the effect of Lance Prism Star entered my brain as well.
While theorizing all of this, I ran into the problem of needing two Exeggcute down at once, however, the recent resurgence of Ditto BCR via Unown “DAMAGE” decks in Dallas reminded me of this perfect placeholder for my deck and a list was developed. Before even putting cards together there were a few iterations of the deck that never left paper. Hypnotoxic Laser, Virbank City Gym, Buff Padding, and Counter Energy were just a few of the cards that couldn't quite fit in the list.
