    which one is a better supporting line for an electivire deck
    raichu (MT) or togekiss (GE)?

    raichu
    pro's:
    - no energy, attach 2 :lightning energy to a pokemon
    - gives room in my deck running a 2-2

    con's
    - fight weakness, murdered against by a gallade.
    -90hp, pretty low

    t'kiss
    pro's
    - 120hp
    - serene grace
    - fight resistance

    con's
    - serene grace; inconsistant
    - flippy
    - needs more room in the deck; run 2-1-2; and need room for the rare candy's

    i can't decide, which one is better
    suggestions and opinions is greatly appriciated.
     
  2. how many energy ae you running in the deck?
    personally, i think Raichu, because you dont have to stuff in candies for it

    Why not test them both. Raichu to me does seem more consistent, though it's Magmotar bait also.

    He means that Magmortar X can snipe it for a Prize. Also, I'd say Togekiss, to wall Gallade while you get a 'Vire charged up.

    I've seen a Togekiss-Vire deck at states last weekend. It did pretty good, got into the Top 8 where it lost to...er...I believe it was a DarkBliss deck. If not, it was Gallantry. Not 100% sure. If I recall correctly, he ran 2-4-4 Electivire with 3-2-3 Togekiss, and 4 Pachi or so. Haven't seen the full deck, so yeah.
    But it did work. Main weak tho is Psychic Lock.

    Meh, why Mag is sniping raichu when can OHKO electivire (without DRE)..

    And I think Flygon d is still the best Elevires partner.

    togekiss is better because of weakness matchups and the fact that it can get energy in play without one having to use an attack (unlike raichu).

    Your right,it is the best partner and the only reason it could still be competitive.
