I have been playing this deck for a while and finally decided to post it. There is nothing fancy about it, but it has done pretty well (more wins than losses). I just wanted to see what other people had to say about and any ideas to make it better. I used to run 2-2 Dugtrio CG to protect the bench, but if I had a bad start, then the bench is the last of my worries. I also tried Blastoise D to eliminate the weakness, but that too seemed problematic. Pokemon: 18 4-2-4 Machamp (DP) 2-2 Claydol (GE) 4 Sableye (CG) Trainers/Supporters: 27 4 rare candy 3 professor birch 2 night maintenance 4 Bebes's 2 plus power 3 pokedex 3 pokenav 3 great ball 2 warp point 1 switch Energy: 16 11 :fighting:Energy 2 Scramble 2 DRE The strategy is to start with sableye and disable any attack they might try (for example Absol - Baleful Wind). Get baltoy/claydol setup as quickly as possible and start thinning the deck. Then, get at least one Machamp ready with a :fighting: energy and start working on the second Machamp. The object is to wear out their pokemon with 1 energy (70 damage) attacks. If you start with Machop, that is not too bad, since for 1 :fighting: energy you can do 20 (which really helps against Absol and/or Sentret. When Sableye is knocked out, use Machamp's revenge attack to hit for 70 with one :fighting: energy, and if 10 more damage is needed, then drop a plus power down. The hardest deck I have run into is Gardevoir LV.X with "Bring Down", but that is one reason I have Sableye.
