Well, I dont see why it could be SO bad. I mean it was such a powerhouse last format, I dont know why it couldnt be now. Sure, there are a lot of faster decks giving it hard times, but I dont see how you would do so bad. For example, Ape is now close to a bye thanks to Night Maintenance allowing you to constantly recycle mew* Kricketot cant deal with Flygon ex d. Too big of HP and strong. Blissey doesnt seem all that bad with a 150 hp attacker that 2hko's their guy. Plus id imagine you could tech for it. Dunno what would be the best tech, but you never know. I was thinking Flygon ex regular, reducing 40 and doing 70, retreat for a flygon d regular to sac, or a flygon ex d for the ohko. Anyway without more blabbering. Here is the BASIC list I came up with ... 4 Tranpich 2 Vibrava 3 Flygon d 2 Flygon ex Seems fairly simple to me, nothing to out of the ordinary. 4 Pinsir 1-1 Fearow d 4 Castform 1 Mew* Once again, seems fairly standard, I assumed Castform is still the best starter, I was thinking budew just because he searches the RC out so you can get setup faster, but I dunno. Now just follow me on the Pinsir d, suggestion before you bash it. I wanted to have ultimately GREAT starts with this deck. Pinsir d + a mentor is the nuts. You Mentor for Spearow, Tranp, Tranp and Pinsir for Fearow d. Next turn you have 2 d pokemon searches that turn. It makes for quite the amazing setup. Plus adding good basics and great cards to ***** to Flygon ex. 4 d Rainbow 8 Purple 2 Grass 14 energy, I couldnt find spots for anymore, but with castform and 2 night maintenance, it shouldnt be that bad. 4 RC 4 Copycat 4 Mentor 3 Windstorm 3 Bebe (shes a cutie!) 2 Night Maintenance I only had room for 4 CC as draw, I definitely need more. All those cards added up make 56, so I have 4 extra slots. For now I was figuring something along the lines of 3 TVR 1 Flygon ex? Im not sure. I realize I dont have any pokemon search, but with Delta draw and the huge mass of draw, I should be able to get it all id hope. Anyway here is the final deck, I by no means am calling it perfect, or even viable. But it does seem very playable. Any and all suggestions are welcome. 4 Tranpich 2 Vibrava 3 Flygon d 2 Flygon ex d 1 Flygon ex 4 Castform 4 Pinsir 1-1 Fearow d 1 Mew* 8 Purple 2 Green 4 d Rainbow 4 RC 4 Copycat 4 Mentor 3 Windstorm 3 TVR 3 Bebe 2 Night Maintence EDIT:: What was editted? I thought I said "pitch".... when did THAT become a violation on the gym?
