    I'm returning to the TCG after a long absence (how long? Team Rocket long.) and looking for some advice on building a deck I'll enjoy playing. I'm trying to construct a deck that (a) has a theme and (b) doesn't have some instantly obvious counter (like it doesn't work against water decks or something). I have the start of a deck design in mind, but I could use some advice on how to finish it, as well as a sanity check that I haven't missed some simple way to neuter it. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Pokemon: 20
    4 Porygon
    4 Porygon2
    4 Porygon-Z
    4 Ho-oh
    4 Kecleon

    Trainers: 16
    ~Not sure what to put here.

    Energy: 24
    3 :fire:
    3 :fighting:
    3 :lightning
    3 :grass:
    3 :water:
    3 :psychic:
    3 :metal: (basic)
    3 :dark: (basic)

    The basic plan is: feed Ho-ohs lots of different colors of basic energy to pump their attacks. Evolve the Porygons quickly and use Porygon-Z's Conversion to hit the opponent's weak points whenever possible. Feed Kecleons whatever colors are needed to let them tank the opponent while the other pokemon are powering up.

    I figure I'll need to use trainer cards that'll let me pull lots of energy, from the deck and from the discard pile; supporters would benefit from Porygon2's Download, but I suppose I shouldn't rely on it. So what are your thoughts?

    4-4-4-2-2 in the order above about all i can say. test it and tell me what you think. hope it works but i think you should try one of the other peoples decks first. good luck

    24 energy is way too much. Never go over 20 energy at the most.

    Hm. Looks like some other people have already put together Porygon-Z and Ho-oh decks, as well as Garchomp decks (which was what I was considering using instead of Porygon-Z so I wouldn't have to discard a bunch of energy). I'll have to take a look at those threads and decide whether I want to use one of those decks or come up with a new idea. Thanks for the advice!
