This is the companion discussion topic for this article.


thanks, interesting. In juniors it seems as if everyone is moving to Blacephalon. Do you have any suggestions for the mirror or might it be wise just to switch to White Kyurem! Thanks and Happy New Year!


So, a cute mirror tech I’ve considered using is big malasada. In theory, it allows you to negate the risk of the confusion coin flips. However, I have never actually tested it. I probably wouldn’t play white kyurem because of how inconsistent it can be. Zoroark Gyrados is a strong pick if the meta is primarily.
