By The Numbers: ARG Richmond

Here are some statistics to keep in mind after the conclusion of ARG Richmond. 

40%
This tournament marked the third consecutive ARG event at which Yveltal-based decks took 40% or more of the prize money. Yveltal-EX/Garbodor took home $400 at Richmond and Atlanta, while Yveltals/Mew won $450 at Charlotte. The deck's Richmond performance solidified its place at the top of the Standard Power Rankings.

15%
This dismally low percentage is that of heads flipped on Crushing Hammers by Russell LaParre (3 out of 20). While a little better luck might have seen LaParre to a higher finish, he still performed quite well with his innovative 6th-place Giratina-EX/Magearna-EX/Hammers deck.

5
The number of points added to the Power Ratings of three Electric-type decks after ARG Charlotte. Raichu/Garbodor increased from 1.71 to 6.71, Raikou/Electrode from 0.57 to 5.57, and Raichu/Golbat from 0.43 to 5.43. Why? Electric-types counter Yveltal...and the format is in need of some Yveltal counters. Look for Raichu and Raikou decks to have a significant presence at the next few Standard events.
