| King of the West
King of the West, a variation of the Ludicargo archetype, is the name of the deck used by Michael Gonzalez in the 2005 World Championships. He was a Semi-Finalist in the Ten and Under Division. The deck takes advantage of the synergy formed from Magcargo's Smooth Over Poké-Power and Ludicolo's Swing Dance Poké-Power.
King of the West is one of the four 2005 World Championships Decks, released on October 31, 2005. Each deck comes packaged with a 2005 World Championships Booklet. Each card features a silver border, Gonzalez's signature, and limited edition 2005 World Championships back. None of the cards are tournament legal.
Michael Gonzalez chose a powerful Ludicolo deck and added popular Magcargo and tricky Rhydon Pokémon to make a world-class competition deck. Between Magcargo's Smooth Over deck rearrangement and Ludicolo's Swing Dance drawing power, you get whatever you need to win every turn!
