    Drowning Poison

    Pokemon:19
    3 Mudkip (Bubble)
    3 Marshtomp (Bubble)
    3 Swampert (Holo)
    4 Cacnea (Poison Payback)
    3 Cacturne
    3 Dunsparce

    Energy:18
    4 Boost Energy
    14 Water Energy

    Trainers:23
    3 Wally's Training
    3 Copycat
    3 Moo-Moo Milk
    3 Elm's Method
    2 Town Volunteers
    3 Oak's Research
    3 Potion
    3 Switch

    The Strategy is to get Cacturne active and 1-2 Holo Swampert on the bench. Once you run outta Boost nrg, use Swampert to attach x-tra nrg to Cacturne.

    Pokemon- Nice. I don't think anything needs to be changed here. It's kinda funny how Dunsparce originally is something to be laughed at, and the newest version is actually nice. ;)
    Energy- Fine how it is.
    Trainers- I'd prolly trade the Elm's Methods for Copycats.

    Overall, looks like a cool deck on paper. :)

    Thanks Baboon! I wanted to hear some fixes before I actually built it. You're a real confidence booster ;).

    Well, you only have 9 Basics -- maybe drop one Switch or one Town Vounteers for a 4th Cacnea or Mudkip? Otherwise, take Baboon's advice, and this deck looks good, at least on paper.

    That's what Dunsparce is for dkates.

    Well, that idea is mainly just to prevent mulligans from happening quite as often.

    I'll take that into consideration Venusaur. Thanks!

    Looks pretty good, here are just some ideas:
    -3 Wally
    -1 TV
    -1 Dunsparce
    +2 Lanette's Net Search
    +1 Fisherman (Should be good w/Swampert)
    +1 Mudkip
    +1 Cacnea (A good pokemon to leave out there for a sacrifice w/the poison power.)
    I also prefer Lanette over Dunsparce for filling the bench. You really don't need 3 Wally and 3 Elm's Training Method. I would go with PETM even though Cacturne actually could be used with Wally for a quick Boost Feint attack.

    I disagree with you Pidgeotto (as I do with a lot of things). Dunsparce is better because it's an x-tra basic. I may consider adding another Cacnea though. Ne1 else?

    Okay, I made some changes to the original list so keep those fixes comin'! :thumb:

    Your Supporter count is on the high side (14), but it's not too bad, and I really don't know what you would do about it anyway. You could probably afford to drop up to 1 each of Town Volunteers, Elm's Method, and Wally's Training for Power Charges (to recover discarded Boosts). Other than that, there's really not much left to do to improve this deck.

    Thanks dkates! Ne1 else?

    Oh yeah, dkates, I'll consider your suggestions, but I'd like to keep the two TV.

    I'm considering adding Fisherman, any thoughts?

    Yeah, I would make room for either Fisherman or Town Volunteers. Looks good though. I'll have to play you at league to really evaluate it.

    I've tested this alot against Slaking and Gardy decks, and it puts up a good fight! It kill's the Slakoths/Ralts early in the game, so they aren't too much of a problem;). The only problem I have is with their backup... Oh well, any more suggestions?
