Help How to play against Mew Genesect with a Rapid Strike Malamar?


Aspiring Trainer
Out of all the current meta decks, Mew Genesect is the one I'm struggling against since I can't use my usual strategy which is taking around 2 turns to KO a Pokémon VMAX or VSTAR given that Mew VMAX could simply bounce itself back to the deck. Another threat to consider is Meloetta which can KO my Pokémon as early as the opponent's turn 1.


NO 3 S's is not a typo
In my testing, matchup is pretty unwinnable for Malamar if the Mew player knows what they are doing, but watching resources (Switch outs and energy, mainly) can help you find a win out, and Playing a Boss's Orders or Escape Rope helps the matchup too.
