    Is LuxBox a separate archetype or just an sp variant

    SP variant is too broad to be useful. DialgaChomp, LuxChomp, Toxitank, Palkia Lock . . . all SP decks, all very different.

    LuxBox was something a little bit different from standard LuxChomp . . . more like the Japanese Crowned Tiger deck from Worlds 2009. Though in reality most SP decks were Toolboxes.

    What do you mean by toolboxes. Like, lots of tools or tons of techs

    @PokemonGeek , "toolbox" generally refers to a deck that has "an answer to everything" or can beat you in one of several different ways.

    I recently bought both Yuta Komatsuda's deck and Pram's Boltevoir. They're both really excellent and so cool. I'm trying to learn how to use them, and I think that both Dragonite FB in this deck and Unown G in Boltevoir have no use against the other deck, right? I think the first one was to counter SP decks and I was wondering about the purpose of the second one.

    Dragonite FB was mainly there for a favourable exchange vs Chomp C LV X.

    Unown G was used against damage counter placement (Gengar, Dusknoir), Status Condition attacks (Gliscor, Roserade GL), and stopped Machamp SF OHKOing your Basics. There were other random effects it prevented as well.

    I miss SP so much. I love you DialgaChomp. ;_; <3

    Pram's Boltevoir tries to tart with spiritomb to set up gardevoir and lock sp from bright looking and healing breathing plus other Poke-Powers then use gallade's sonic blade to utilise bring down from gardevoir lv x, which gives its own switch engine. machamp also killed SP

    Thanks for this. I'm afraid we are offtopic, though.
    Anyway, I'm sure what you said is a viable strategy, but I read Pram's worlds report on Pokegym and he states that he used Sonic Blade only once in a whole season of playing Gardevoir; he normally used Psychic Cut, Gardevoir's Psychic Lock and like you said Bring Down and Machamp's Take Down.
