Zeel (Zekrom Eelektrik) is probably the best deck in the current format, and will still be a strong contender going into the Dark ages. As a show of its might it took all but one spring regionals. Here was the list I used at my regionals (and similar to what I used at states): 3 Tynamo 3 Eelektrik 30 hp 2 Zekrom BW 3 Mewtwo EX 1 Thundurus 1 Zapdos ND 1 Shaymin 1 Cleffa 15 4 Pokemon Collector 4 pont (Professor Oak's New Theory) 4 Professor Juniper 2 Sage's Training 2 Pokegear 3.0 4 Junk Arm 4 Pokemon Catcher 3 Level Ball 2 Switch 2 Eviolite 30 4 dce (Double Colorless Energy) 10 Electric Energy 14 For those unfamiliar, Eelektrik allows you to once per turn attach a basic electric energy from your discard to one of your benched Pokemon, allowing you to greatly increase the speed of your energy attachments. I vastly prefer the consistency and stability of the collector version, but understand the allure of more draw focused Dual Ball version. I'm interested to hear y'alls opinion on the subject. With the move into the dark ages I plan to focus more heavily on Eviolited Zeks who fair well against both of the main new Dark-type attackers, adding 1 evo and 1 zek. I'm also interested to hear what other people think will change in the new format. Otherwise just general discussion of the mighty Zeel and everything about it.
