    The Pokemon that run the deck

    Spinda L.25 – Colorless – HP70
    Basic Pokemon

    [C] Anticipate: Draw 1 card from the top of your deck and 1 card from the bottom of your deck.

    [C] Synchro Punch: 10 damage. If at least 1 Basic Energy attached to Spinda matches an Energy type attached to the Defending Pokemon, this attack does an additional 30 damage.

    Weakness: Fighting (+20)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 1

    For 1 energy, Spinda can deal 40 damage making this 1 of the better starters for the deck. If you are going first, just draw your 2 cards and if your going second, play Energy Switch or Roseanne's Search to search your deck for the energy you need to do 40 damage that turn. Spinda also has 70 HP which is good for a basic, so it can last a while to deal damage to your opponent. with the help of buffers, she can knock out Basic Pokemon.

    Rattata L.10 – Colorless – HP30
    Basic Pokemon

    [C] Tail Whip: Flip a coin, if heads the Defending Pokemon can’t attack during your opponent’s next turn.

    [C] Bite: 20 damage.

    Weakness: Fighting (+10)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 0

    Not really a starter you want because of low HP. It can prevent a attack if you flip heads and can do 20 damage for 1 energy. If you start with this, you can retreat it for free and bring up a perfered starter.

    Raticate L.29 – Colorless – HP70
    Stage 1 – Evolves from Rattata

    [C] Bite Into: 10 damage. Flip a coin, if heads this attack does an additional 60 damage.

    [C] Sucker Punch: 20 damage. If Raticate has any Darkness Energy attached to it, this attack does an additional 20 damage.

    Weakness: Fighting (+20)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 0

    This is a good attacker for the deck. For 1 energy and a heads coin flip, you can do 70 damage which is enough to KO a basic and 90% of Stage 1 Pokemon with buffers. Thats good for 1 energy. The second attack is also good because again, 40 damage for 1 energy. The one thing that makes Raticate good is its free Retreat Cost.

    Farfetch’d L.26 – Colorless – HP60
    Basic Pokemon

    [C] Swords Dance: On your next turn, Farfetch’d’s Leek Slap does 60 base damage.

    [C] Leek Slap: 30 damage. Farfetch’d can’t use Leek Slap on your next turn.

    Weakness: Lightning (+20)
    Resistance: Fighting (-20)
    Retreat: 1

    Another perfered starter for the deck. For 1 energy, you can do 30 damage or you can Swords Dance and go for 60 the next turn which can KO any Basic Pokemon. Pachirisu, which people will use, has 70 HP. Just put a buffer on it and you can KO it that same turn.

    Minun L.30 – Lightning – HP60
    Basic Pokemon

    Poke-Power: Minus Charge
    You can use this Power once during your turn, if any of your Pokemon were Knocked Out on your opponent’s previous turn. Draw 2 cards. This Power can’t be used if this Pokemon is affected by a Special Condition, or if another Pokemon already used Minus Charge during your turn.

    [L] Tag Play -: 20 damage. If Plusle is on your Bench, you may attach 1 of Minun’s Energy to 1 of your Benched Pokemon.

    Weakness: Fighting (+10)
    Resistance: Steel (-20)
    Retreat: 1

    Minun is only here for its Poke-Power, Minus Charge. If any of your Pokemon are KO'ed , you can draw 2 cards, other then that, its not really used for anything else. With the help of Buffers, it can OHKO Zapdos' and deal decent damage to Empoleon/ Water type Pokemon. Minun is not a starter you want. Thats why there is only 1 in the deck.

    The Trainers

    - Energy Switch

    Just to move energies from Spindas to other Pokemon.

    - Energy Removal 2

    Just to slow your opponent down.

    - PlusPower


    - Energy Search

    To search for the energies needed for Spinda

    - Strength Charm


    - Warp Point

    For disruption/ switching Pokemon

    - Amulet Coin

    More draw. Windstorm is not here anymore so, why not.

    - Night Maintenance/TSD

    just Energy/Pokemon recovery

    - Roseanne's Search

    Pokemon/ Energy search

    - Team Galactic's Wager

    More Disruption

    - Bebe's Search

    Pokemon search


    Really no standard type of energy needed. Just change them up to set whats more popular in you area. Give Spinda the advantage.

    Match Ups

    I don't have any match ups for this deck because I don't know the other decks like that.

    I really want who all that read this to test this deck out and come up with match ups. I think this deck can do well.

    So what do you all think?

    Sorry but this is going to get crushed by basically everything it comes up against. Not enough high-HP Pokemon with high-damage attacks.
