    Well after a hard week of busy school work, I'm finally came back to the Gym. I have been anxiously waiting to try out a new deck with Tops EX. Above all decks that I have played, Kabutops has been the most fun and strategic card out there along with its Hydrocutter attack. So I guess I'll take a stab at a Tops deck. I don't know what I should put in with Tops and Steelix so I just threw in Delcatty. :confused:

    Pokemon: (19)
    3 Buried Fossil
    3 Kabuto
    3 Kabutops EX
    3 Onix (SS)
    3 Steelix (2 SS, 1 AQ)
    2 Skitty
    2 Delcatty (R/S)

    Trainers: (24)
    4 Copycat
    4 Potion
    3 Rare Candy
    3 Oaks Research
    3 Mysterious Fossil
    3 Elms Training Method
    3 Switch
    1 Towns Volunteers

    Good deck. I've been thinking about this idea too. I've thought about Furret for Metals instead of Delcatty but Oracle/Delcatty can get you the same thing.
    Unless you play Boost I don't see why you need 3 Rare Candy + 3 Kabuto for 3 Kabutops ex. I would go with just the Kabuto since his attack is such a good starter.(Though it would be 2nd turn.)

    try super scoop up for tops so they think there almost through with you then you restorore his heath

    Yes good point Super Scoop Ups would help, but remember Switch could retreat any weakened Tops or Steelix.

    True but that wont give them full heath after an opponent is about to knock them out because both are hard to knock tops due to its hp and steelix just for being metal

    You may want to add in some Power Charge to get your rainbow and steel energies out of the discard pile.......

    Try this..

    - 3 Myst Fossil
    -1 Steelix AQ
    -1 Onix
    -2 Skitty
    - 2 Delcatty
    + 3 Natu/Soothing Wave
    + 3 Xatu
    + 2 Dunsparce
    + 1 Ditto SK or Azurril
    Ditto might work as a surprise on Gardevoir x. ;/

    Thx for the advice, SuperSaiyan, Xatu is better to play.

    Here's my Kabutops EX/ Xatu deck list. Swarming Kabutops EX and Xatu for quick healing with a free retreat cost is awesome.
    SS Steelix would go good with K-Tops with the Grass resistance to counter Sceptile etc., but with Ampharos EX decks popping up, Steelix wouldn't be much of help against the Steel resistance. In addition, the Skyridge Natu is pretty good to put in with it's second attack.

    Pokemon: (17)
    3 Buried Fossil
    3 Kabuto
    3 Kabutops EX
    2 SS Natu
    1 SK Natu
    3 SS Xatu
    2 SS Zangoose

    Trainers: (24)
    4 Potion
    3 Copycat
    3 Rare Candy
    3 Oaks Research
    3 Elms Training Method
    3 Switch

  11. I would recomend puting Multi Energy if you have or get it. Since it's basicly Rainbow Energy only you don't have to put a damage counter on. ;)

    Underground Lake + TV Reporter perhaps?
     
  13. WHAT ABOUT ESPEON!!!Since your deck is part psycick I would deffinetly put SS Espeon and maby a Aquapolis Eseon would be good.
     
  14. TrueGamerX

    Espeon would work, but I want to focus around swarming K-Top's EX and Xatu's healing for backup.
    Also, I forgot about Multi Energy for both types of energy. Thx APT :thumb:

    Wow, there's a lot of stuff to put in an K-tops deck. :D

    So here's an updated deck list...

    Pokemon: (17)

    3 Kabuto
    3 Kabutops EX
    2 SS Natu
    1 SK Natu
    3 SS Xatu
    2 SS Zangoose

  15. Looks good But trust me on this , if your going to put Copycat in the best amount is 3.
     
  16. TrueGamerX

    TrueGamerX New Member

    Well either 3 Copycat or 3 TV Reporter would work.

    Oh and Happy Thxgiving Pokegym.net!
     
  17. Howbout droping a Elm Method for Copycat.
     
  18. TrueGamerX

    Sounds efficient there APT. :thumb:
    Also since I got Psychic, Wynaut could be thrown in there.

    Yes, but you've gotta watch for Wobbuffet amd Shedinja as they'll pretty much stop Kabutops ex and Xatu is weak to [P]. I would recommend at least oine Wobbuffet as you can counter enemy Wobbuffets. Other than that pretty solid deck!
     
  20. Well for that how about Buffer Piece?
