    Pokemon:15
    3x Kabuto(neo2)
    3x Kabutops(neo2)
    2x Scyther
    2x Scizor(Aqua)
    2x Cleffa
    2x Elekid
    1x Aipom

    Energy:16
    4x Fighting
    4x Recycle
    4x Metal
    4x Rainbow

    Trainers:29
    4x Copycat
    4x Focus Band
    4x Double Gust
    4x Fossil(2 Egg, 2 Mysterious)
    3x Elm
    3x Gold Berry
    3x Stadium(2 Healing/1 Energy)
    2x Oak's Research
    2x Town Volunteers

    Strategy:
    Charge Kabutops with 3 Energies and Hydrocutter all the way. While attacking with Kabutops, charge Scizor with 4 Metals and up to 4 Rainbows. By the time Scizor has 4 Metals on it, use Scizor all the way because not many Pokemon can actually hurt Scizor, especially Grass Pokemon.

    Kabutops - Weakness to Grass
    Scizor - Fights Grass Pokemon, because most Grass Pokemon can't kill it in one shot
    Scizor - Weakness to Fire
    Kabutops - Kills Fire

    That's the cycle of this deck. Aipom is an anti-deck out Pokemon in this deck, could also help me get back some stuff from discard pile.

    Please fix this deck if you think it needs some fixing/tweaking.

    I've been playing this deck since June.
    Go with 3/2 Scizor to be sure you don't have those Scyther in the prizes. I like 1 Buried Fossil since you can Trader for it(though your not using trainers) & it's power can get you started pretty quickly. Fossil Egg doesn't work enough for me. Especially since you just have to get 1 Kabuto from Myst Fossil or Buried & then Revive Friends to get the other Kabuto. I would also take out the 3 stadium for 1 Underground Lake. 3 Stadium is too much for modified anyway. I would also take out 2 Recycle for 2 fighting, but maybe not since you use more Rainbow then I do. I also like Warp in this deck since it can be used with Tops as well.
    The trainers are your call but I think 2 Volunteers is too much. Maybe fit in some Trader. Or, you can do like me & use Furret.
    -1 Aipom
    -3 Stadiums
    -1 TV
    -2 Fossil Egg
    +1 Buried fossil
    +1 Underground Lake
    +1 Scyther
    +2 Sentret
    +2 Furret
    The rest of the trainers are your preference. I prefer to focus on Scizor which is more unstoppable then Kabutops & power up Kabutops while Scizor is up there all day. If Scizor falls then your powering Kabutops the rest of the way.
    Hope that helps :)

    Having more than 24 Trainers is a bad thing. Here is my fix:

    -1 Copycat
    -1 Focus Band
    -1 Double Gust
    -1 Fossil Egg
    -1 Professor Elm
    -3 Gold Berry
    -2 Professor Oak's Research
    -2 Healing Field

    +1 Scyther
    +4 Fighting Energy
    +3 Moo-Moo Milk
    +2 Town Volunteers
    +2 Energy Stadium

    It doesn't matter how many trainers you have, Carrington. Sure 30 might seem much but 24 is common. I'd reverse everything carrington did.

    I agree with Prime. Don't change a thing.

    Having more than 24 Trainers is a problem?

    I don't think so. I've been playing Pokemon for more than 3 years and I know having at least 30 Trainers is very common. More Trainers, more support, you know? And more Trainers could also be more draw Power. Therefore, I would not want to play so little Trainer Cards.

    Pidgeotto Trainer, what does the Furret do? I mean how does it help in this deck in a good way? I've heard of many people using Furrets in these kinds of decks, but I'm not sure what it really does.

    I can answer your Furret question. AQ Furret (one of my favorite cards, BTW) allows you to put 2 cards from your hand back into your deck in order to search your deck for any Energy card.

    The aq Furret is used to get those Metals on Scizor quickly. By turn 4 I often have a Scizor w/4 Metals that will do 70 on average & take 40 less per hit. It becomes lethal. If you don't use Furret, other Scizor decks with Furret will beat you to the punch. Furret is good to just hang around too. I can use it to get out of energy crisises & use it to get Warps which I use. Those are good against many decks & Double Gusts often against Furret. :)

    Don't forget to use 2-3 underground lake.
    It's very useful in this deck.

    You just need 1 Underground Lake & it should be your only stadium. I started playing with 2 but 1 is all that is needed for a late-game card. Plus, not many people play stadiums in modified. You only need 1.
