    Well, after trying this out using the Stage 2 Fishing Engine, it was inconsistent to say the least. So I nixed that idea and went to a more conventional Trainer Engine. The consistency improved greatly and the overall deck is fast on setup. Ideally you want a Pachi Start or a Darkrai Star. Darkrai is in case you go first and need to disrupt their setup Pokemon. This also provides assistance in getting the Lv X out faster which is a Bonus. Obviously Pachi is to load the bench more quickly and the selections depend on the Trainers in Hand!! Generally If I have a Roseanne's, I will get Sneasel, Togepi, Darkrai. If Bebe's I will go more aggro and get Sneasel and 2 Togepi. Turn 2 Kiss is so important and needs to obtained asap! Allowing for loading of energy to your bench and just making Pachi get koed is a plus as it frees room for you!
    GAG is an issue do to Psychic Lock and if "The Answer" get some weight, the Battle Frontier might need to be added!

    Overall it is nice being able to do 100 on a heads flip with Togekiss and Darkrai Lv X getting the quick power up and KO can be a critical move!

    So there you go!! I am thinking of changing this to a Porygon2 Engine, but haven't worked that out yet... plus it adds 1 More Bench Sitter!

    This is my variation to TogeRai. (NOTE: I don't have multiples of Weavile SW but feel free to give it your own touch)

    ----------
    Pokemon
    ----------
    4 Sneasel DP
    1 Weavile DP
    1 Weavile SW
    4 Togepi GE
    3 Togetic GE
    2 Togekiss GE
    2 Darkrai GE
    2 Darkrai LV. X GE

    ----------
    Trainers
    ----------
    4 Rare Candy
    2 Premier Ball
    2 Dusk Ball
    1 Scott
    4 Super Scoop Up
    2 Night Maintenance
    2 Prof. Oak's Visit
    1 Felicity's Drawing
    2 Moonlight Stadium
    1 Sidney's Stadium

    ----------
    Energy's
    ----------
    20 Basic :dark: Energy's

    The strategy is to power up Weavile or Darkrai fast with Togekiss. I put in the Super Scoop Up's for a chance to filter out any energy's in my deck or for a chance for a free heal/retreat. Even if it seems to rely on Poke-Power/Body, it can pack a punch when alowed to set up.

    Pros:
    -Great teamwork, most pokemon, if not all, recieve a big help from others.
    -Decent card filtering, can find cards at decent rate.
    -When allowed to set up, even Togekiss packs a punch with the help of Weavile and Darkrai lv. X.

    Cons:
    -Predictable, all cards actually point out my strategy
    -Cessetation Crystal puts a big dent in the strategy
    -Low HP, all pokemon exept for Togekiss have average HP

    Keep the Pachis, they help vs. Cess and set you up. I'd say 2-3 Pachi would be good.

    what about weavile dp1 after a togekiss drop?
    try crystal beach?

    I thought of that, but the space is tight. If I choose a Stadium it would be Crystal Beach ot help against DRE and Scramble! With Togekiss spreading the energy and Darkrai retreating for :colorless:, Moonlight isn't as needed! Thanks for the Reply!

    Premier ball is definitely an idea that I have tinkered with. I opted not to use it do to Kiss thinning the deck and thus allowing quicker cycling of the deck. TSD (even though a flip) gives me a better return than the Premier Ball in the chances I get 2-3 heads and can grab another Togekiss/pi. Thanks for the Reply and I might revisit this!

    Pachi definitely helps against Tool Decks! It also gives me a quicker setup and is a good sac Pokemon!
    3 Pachi has been consistent for me at this time and it does Wonders against :lightning Weak decks!

    Pretty nice list, But i opt for the Pachi do to the setup of multiple Kiss faster! I would really caution against discaring trainers though. This deck seems to need everything in it to function well! Good Luck!

    Crystal Beach is a definite thought and the DP1 Weavile would be nice, but I would opt for another 1-0-1 line of Togekiss first! Fighting weakness isn't the best choice right now! Thanks for the post!

    They were actually both SW just didn't list it. Thanks!

    Updated the list and changed a few things! for all the posts!

    I just remembered that it might be an idea to try to put in Unown G.
    The defensive properties as a Tool card is unheard of. It helps alot when playing against G&G.
