==History==
The deck was created some time ago, after {{TCG|EX Delta Species}} was released (obviously). It quickly rose in popularity until it was declared by many to be the ultimate deck to beat. It was one of three dominant [[Deck archetype (TCG)|Deck archetypes]] to be listed and broken down in the July 2007 issue of [[Beckett Pokémon Unofficial Collector]], the other two being {{TCG|Raieggs}} and {{TCG|Flygon EX/Delta}}. At that point, it simply soared in popularity until it was removed from [[Pokémon Organized Play]] later that year.
