    Looks like CMT made a better showing this week. I wonder if that has anything to do with Terrakion.

    How about stats for Juniors and Seniors, Masters aren’t the only ones who play this great game. Lets give some credit to the other divisions.

    1. Raen

      While I understand where you are coming from, The Top Cut is generally primarily concerned with the most competitive aspects of the game. While perhaps unfortunate, the Junior and Senior divisions are not the most competitive. Masters takes that slot by a long shot and, to best determine which decks actually are the best (which is a major goal of this sort of list), Masters’ results are the only ones that are particularly relevant.

      Of course, PokeGym compiles lists of Seniors and Juniors winners, so the information is out there for those who are interested!

      1. coolestman22

        Yeah, but it doesn’t hurt to post them.

  13. Big_tauro

    it is interesting that trainer lock decks were succesfull in scotland.

    looking through this, ZekEels has 7 first places, EXTC (Celebi/Mewtwo/Tornadus) has 7 wins, Terrakion variants won 3 (2 involving Landorus and 1 of those 2 having Tornadus), Durant has won 1, Chandelure/Vileplume won 1, The Truth won 1, and Donphan/Mewtwo won 1. Really shows how the Meta is developing. With these results, we can safely assume that ZekEels and EXTC/CMT are the dominating decks of this format, Tier 1.5 are Terrakion variants, and Tier 2 is pretty much everything else that is included above.

  16. Bob Mirabile

    Yes I understand where your coming from, but there are plenty of Seniors and Juniors who are just as competitive as the masters. The masters use these lists to adjust their decks based on what is winning at that moment for the next tournament.

    Remember most of the Seniors and Juniors practice, train, & build decks with Masters. There are alot of Seniors that play just as good as the Masters, so why not give them the credit they earn.

    The Pokemon Company don’t run their events without Juniors and Seniors. They work hard to get their points just like Masters.

    1. Kyle Sucevich

      While we would love to cover all three divisions, there are a few obstacles in the way of doing any sort of work with Juniors and Seniors. First of all, we are a small group at this point; we hardly have enough staff to report on the Masters. In addition to that, there are a lot of legal issues when it comes to working with minors. A lot of parents are sensitive about having their children featured or even mentioned on websites, so we are avoiding that all together right now. Overall, Masters is the most competitive division with the most players, and it provides us the least amount of other issues. In the future, we would like to cover all three divisions, but it isn’t feasible right now.

      1. pokymans

        Well if you need more help with getting seniors I can atleast report what won in the midwest or if you every expand more and need help with 3 divisions I can help with the midwest-southern tournaments.
