    Hi guys, im new to the pokegym community, I just wanted a few pointers and tips on my deck, I just started playing pokemon a couple days ago so im really new to the game. Heres the deck I plan to use at the state championship comming up in a little bit. It will be my first tournament aside from the prerealse. Once again any pointers or tips would be greatfully appreciated. (Remeber Im not that great and i dont have a lot of cards:frown:)

    Pokemon: 15

    4-4 houndoom (GE)
    3-3 blissy
    1 sableye (CG)

    Trainers: 27

    4 celios network
    4 plus power
    3 mentor
    3 TGW
    3 Tv reporter
    3 cessation crystal
    2 castaway
    2 night maintnence
    2 stevens advice
    1 copycat

    Energy: 18

    4 boost
    4 Special dark
    5 fire
    3 holon ff
    2 basic dark

    The Strategy

    Ok then, so the strategy to this deck is very simple, get turn one houndoor, attach a fire energy. Next turn get out a houndoom and attack for t2 80-110 or 40-70 with burn, or 20-50 (im including the pluspowers and strength charms for the dmg.) and discard a card from there hand... (i know its amazing!) The sableye tech is for good top decks, and disable for blissy match-ups and it's a very good card in the format. The Blissy's are for beatdown after your first houndoom dies, bring one up with a holon ff and an energy or 2 hopefully, and just pound them get a fire from your discard and your not fish bait for gallade any more.. (well at least not as much.)

    The Scans

    Houndour L.13 – Fire – HP50
    Basic Pokemon

    [R] Ember: 20 damage. Flip a coin, if tails discard 1 Fire Energy attached to Houndour.
    [C][C] Kick: 20 damage.

    Weakness: Water (+10)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 1

    Houndoom L.41 – Darkness – HP90
    Stage 1 – Evolves from Houndour

    [D] Darkness Fang: 20 damage. Choose 1 card from your opponent’s hand without looking and discard it.
    [R][C] Dark Flame: 40 damage. You may discard either 1 Fire Energy or 1 Darkness Energy attached to Houndoom. If you discarded a Fire Energy, the Defending Pokemon is now Burned. If you discarded a Darkness Energy, this attack does an additional 30 damage.

    Weakness: Water (+20)
    Resistance: Psychic (-20)
    Retreat: 1

    Once again, im new and any help would be great. I created the list yesterday and I thought it would work pretty good.

    Alright, heres real advice, switch the one copy cat for a strength charm. Then you should be set.
