Law Yuen To, 3rd - Zoroark-GX/Lycanroc-GX
Player notes:
  • "I knew I would enter a field full of Buzzwole. Still, I wanted to play Zoroark, and did not regret it."
  • "The most dangerous period when facing [BuzzRoc] comes when there are 3-4 Prizes left, the [Beast Ring] window. You should try to limit this window to one turn; if they hit 2 Beast Ring on two Buzzwole or Buzzwole GX, you will lose. Try to take one single Prize, then 2 Prizes. That way, Sledgehammer never activates. The single Prize is preferably the Octillery line; without Octillery [the BuzzRoc player] draws less, and you can N them to dead hands late game. Of course if there's a Rockruff with Energy, you should go for it first. So it still depends on the situation."
  • "Decklist-wise, I added a second Float Stone, because after a KO, you often need a pivot. That way you get to use Mewtwo or Mew-EX easier. You almost never attack with Zoroark-GX [vs. BuzzRoc]. Tapu Lele-GX is an okay attacker if needed." 

Patrick Ebio, 4th - Zoroark-GX/Golisopod-GX
