I am in need of advice for my first and second cities, and I would like your feedback to help me get these decks into tip top shape, as well as to help me decide which one to use for Cities. All fixes and criticisms appreicated! Lucario/Blissey Pokemon: 16 3 Chansey 4 Blissey 4 Riolu 3 Lucario 1 Lucario Lv.X 1 Sableye CG Energy: 16 2 Boost Energy 9 Fighting Energy 3 Fire Energy 2 Holon FF Energy Trainers: 28 3 Celio's Network 2 Roseanne's Research 3 Castaway 2 Cessation Crystal 2 Strength Charm 3 Pluspower 4 TV Reporter 1 Holon Adventurer 4 Pokedex Handy 1 Team Galactic's Wager 2 Warp Point 1 Night Maintenance Strategy: Start off early with Riolu for quick damage. Evolve to Lucario to harass even more while setting up Blissey. Just beat them down as much as possible as fast as possible. Sableye tech to slow down other Blissey decks.

Hit for 20 with Magmar turn 1 and hit for 40 turn 2 with Magmortar. Set up Blissey while beating down with Magmortar. Level up to snipe EX's or potential threats on the bench. Burn damage and destroy. Blissey/Sableye CG Pokemon: 10 4 Chansey 4 Blissey 2 Sableye CG Energy: 18 4 Boost Energy 10 Fire Energy 4 Holon FF Energy Trainers: 32 4 Celio's Network 2 Roseanne's Research 3 Castaway 1 Cessation Crystal 2 Strength Charm 2 Buffer Piece 4 Pluspower 4 TV Reporter 1 Holon Adventurer 4 Pokedex Handy 1 Team Galactic's Wager 2 Warp Point 2 Night Maintenance Strategy: Get Sableyes out early to start excavating while using Blissey to beat down the opponent. Excavate can set up your draws and discard energy as well. Basic beatdown with Blissey as the main attacker. Sableye can slow down mirror matches or any deck with Blissey. Honchkrow/Absol Pokemon: 13 4 Absol SW 4 Murkrow MT 3 Honchkrow 1 Honchkrow Lvl X 1 Umbreon* Trainers: 32 2 Night Maintenance 3 Roseanne's 4 Team Galactic's Mars 3 Team Galactic's Wager 2 Castaway 2 Cessation Crystal 2 Strength Charm 3 Plus Power 2 Windstorm 2 Super Scoop Up 3 Energy Removal 2 3 Celio's Network 1 Warp Point Energy: 15 4 Special Darkness 6 Basic Darkness 3 Double Rainbow Energy 2 Scramble Energy Strategy: Start with Absol and use Baleful Wind to immediately start discarding. Setup a Honchkrow and use Krows to abuse his power and continue to discard. Absol can do 40 for 1 when needed, and then scooped up. Umbreon is used for more discard. Basic hand control. Please let me know what you guys think. I'm sure you've seen decks like these all over the place, but they are good, and they are what I have to work with. Please note any fixes to any of the decks that can improve them. Also, let me know which one you think is the best choice to start of my Cities run. Thanks a lot!
