With Catcher in the format and most important Pokemon having over 100 HP, I'd say that Rayquayza is better. It can OHKO anything, and it doesn't lost zone the energy like Magnezone, making it a much much better attacker.

^^ Keep in mind... They are completely different sets. We won't be getting him until next season while we'll be getting Raiku here soon.

Rayquaza because you can stream 240 damage every turn with relative ease to KO anything they send at you. maybe with a raikou in thee too for garbodor.

Make no mistake, Rayquaza EX will be fetching for $100 a piece when it hits U.S. Shores later this year or next year If we're lucky. Raikou EX is alright but not nearly as good as Darkrai EX and possibly Tornadus EX.

One of the things that Darkrai EX has going for it is it's Psychic Resistance which a player running Mewtwo EX could just slap in Ruins of Alph to get rid of it unless Darkrai runs Eviolite to still get around X Ball doing enough damage to KO it.

The FCC's plan on Net Neutrality just leaked as it would give cable companies the power to slow & prevent users from being able to access their favorite websites. We HAVE to stop them!

I don't think rayquaza will be $100 a piece, because the reason Mewtwo was so High is because you could put it in any deck. You can't do that with rayquaza. Maybe around $60-70 a peice, but not $100

I hope you are right. I will buy a case or two and make back ~half of the cost on said case(s) if they hit $100 a piece.
I doubt we will see that high of a price level though. I'm thinking $50-75 range.

RE: Raikou Ex- eelektrik or Rayquaza Ex- eelektrik?

Ok so the match between the two is going to be very interesting. I feal like Requaza being able to one shot any pokemon gives him the edge but Riakou has some serious advantages, the fact that he kills other decks support pokemon slowing them down ALOT I think really pulls him even in a good players hands (Riakou mirror matches will suck).
Also they may just combine into one deck we will see.
The real problem is we dont know if Rayquaza will come into a different rotation meta.

Now Im not saying Darkrai isnt good but I dont understand how it will be better than Raikou/eels, Please enlighten me.

You are right. Raikou Mirror will suck. Being able to take out the supporting Pokemon so quickly and without noitce, (2 Dynamotor and an attachment) is really something Rayquaza has going for him. Rayquaza is better, no lie, well, that is, until raikou takes out the eelz. Rayquaza can't do anything then.

RE: Raikou Ex- eelektrik or Rayquaza Ex- eelektrik?

There's no reason to not run both. With the one retreat cost becoming zero with Skyarrow Bridge, Raikou and Rayquaza can effectively alternate which is attacking. Raikou can take cheap prizes while Rayquaza can take down the more heavy hitters. The only major problem I see is the mirror or vs Zekeels with Raikou, but that's more dependent on who sets-up first. Raikou + Rayquaza also doesn't suffer to mono-Fighting-type decks as bad as most Electric-type decks.
