nnaann said:Decks will adapt to it, so that isn't really a problem. Right now, no one seems to care much about Vileplume. We run 3-1-3 Stage 2 lines, Professor Elm's Training Method is non existent, and without trainers a lot of decks are crippled. If Vileplume does become popular, it will just mean adding more Pokemon search in the form of Supporters, running more Stage 1s and just being able to set up without trainers.
The problem is, without trainers, there is almost no engine for ANY deck. In MD-on, I ran Magnerock with 3 trainers in the entire list. In this format, you NEED trainers; even if you play vileplume.
