    The idea is to swarm with Exploud's first attack, hopefully spreading a decent amount of damage to the bench. Dodrio sweeps up whatever Explouds already damaged. Tauros is to get rid of annoying Crystal Beaches. Unknown G and Holon FF for Gallade/Gardevoir and the fighting energy is to get past Bannete's resistance. Cessation is just nice to have to stop Telepass/Cosmic Power/Energy Draw/Flame Body/Torrid Wave/Firestarter/ etc.

    Octillery is an awesome sniper early game to soften stuff up for Exploud. Locking in Crystal Beach and Cessation with Exploud can make your opponent throw a fit. Yah similiar to the other one but Octillery can also get rid of Sp. energy.

    4-2-4 Exploud GE
    3-3 Dodrio MT
    2-2 Claydol
    3 Pachi

    Furret dosent work in that deck,claydol with a fishing engine is easier to setup.

    Furret is actually better through testing. It can get your Holon FFs guaranteed unlike Claydol where you need to draw into them. It also sets up a much better Exploud-swarm. By the time Dodrio actually needs to come out you should easily have been able to set it up. The biggest reason to not run Claydol is that it allows me to use Cessation Crystal which, IMO, is needed in any Exploud deck.

    Once u get 2 exploud and a dodrio,then u really dont need claydol, Dodrio should be hitting late game after all the spreading. Absol ex is great late game to move and Ko for multi Kos.Furret iss good for the first 3 turns,then they wager and u cant recover. The deck runs into that probelm,I tested it against everything alot. Claydol is needed more than u know. Fishing Engine thins so well that Claydol drawing is nothing but Trainers and NRg u need anyway.

    Ok well I guess I'll test it some more, but I just seem to have bad luck with claydol draws.
