  3. You played my favourite deck mahone.

  4. It was great to meet you at Philly this weekend Mahone. Congrats on the top 16!

  5. Mahone… Shrining Arceus actually performed well in Japan… I think you were onto something.

  6. I was 3-5-1. But I got to meet you and talk to you and you gave me some good ideas. Thanks for the support and encouragement

  7. Way to go to the whole Tricky Gym Squad. Glad you guys did well. I finished 4-3-2. Still had a great time. Both my ties went to 5 prizes in game 3 with the old switch the active with a 1 prize attacker move. Looking forward to Memphis.

  8. Great run! Hope to see you guys in Memphis 🔥🔥

  9. good job dude !, this deck list is crazy and your invention, no doubt both shining lugia and arceus were brought to light by you <3 a true pokemon genius , keep up the good work dude

  10. Congratulations Mahone! I met you after round 10 or 11 on Sunday, and you were even cooler in person than you are on YT. Thanks so muchfor the encouragement; my girl and I had an amazing first competitive Pokemon experience. Also, congrats again on taking that VikaRay list to Top16. I may just swap my Dhelmise for the Lugia.. Much love from Craig & Jess!

  11. Congrats on your run at philly!
    I used your list you put up on Saturday to a cup and won the whole thing only losing once to the vikaray mirror. Only changes I did to the original list was take out a volkner for a Stevens resolve and one escape rope for a switch! But thanks for the idea on lugias cause at first I was gonna use dhelmise!

  12. Nice Ray deck. I'm from Australia and this weekend (23rdof this month) I'll be participating in my first ever Pokémon tournament of any kind. It's a League Cup and I will be piloting Gardy/Swampert. So wish me luck and congrats on 15th! Super awesome!!!

  13. Dhelmise deserves the spot! :’(

  14. Love the fact they still had to cover your misty tat, good run tho it was awesome watching your streamed round

  15. Good job! Philly was my first regional I finished 6 3 to get some points and played Riley round 2 was a real joy seeing you guys there and getting to play Riley!

  16. Congratulations on your result, Mahone! 😀

  17. Congratulations! Would you possibly change anything about the list if the meta still shifts a little or would you say this is your perfect 60?

  18. I was like “this is a shorter video than normal these days”.. oh, it’s a deck profile. Long time no see.

  19. Sick list!!! I've been wanting to play this combo. Seems really fun to play

  20. Congrats on top 16! Thanks for figuring out how to make Vika/Ray a viable deck to play against shrine decks!!

  21. Is there a link to the stream where I can watch ?

  22. I am so happy for your Andrew, keep up the great work across the board! Sorry, we didn't get a chance to meet, maybe at another regional down the road.

  23. Might need to add Stevens Resolve to My Sogaleo deck. From the Bathroom to the prize wall it was a blast, and I hope we'll get to play in the future. Congrats on 15th

  24. You gotta do the shrine deck video and congrats brosef

  25. Good job. I think the real question is not if Ray was a real deck but if shrine decks were real decks. I think the sheer number you played this weekend proved that they are definitely here to stay.

  26. Congratz I always #teammahone ! Still I hate you for rising the prices of shining Lugia YOU DID IT BOI

  27. I played you in around 11 and it was my coolest Pokemon experience ever. Thank you again for being such an awesome human being in person as well as making my son's weekend by signing his play mat
