    now with this in mind, onto the deck, fire is basically the dominant type, and i thought why not use the only pokemon resistant to fire? expedition ninetales will need 7 fire energies attached to OHKO 1 Salamence, with a Defender Charge attached :)

    Here's the deck:

    Pokemon: 15

    4 Bagon
    1 Shellgon
    3 Salamence
    3 Latias ex
    2 Solrock
    2 Zangoose

    Trainers: 27

    3 Rare Candy
    3 Copycat
    2 Forest Guardian
    2 Moo Moo Milk
    3 Defender Charge
    2 Master Ball
    2 Lady Outing
    3 Switch
    1 Warp Point
    1 Wally’s Training
    1 Fan Club
    1 Pokenav
    1 Dual Balls
    1 Fisherman
    1 Town Volunteers

    Energy: 18

    4 Fighting
    7 Fire
    7 Water

    Strategy: Beat the hell out of Blaziken Ninetales decks :) but in general, set up salamence and just get easy ko's with his gust power. Zangoose, Latias ex are back up hitters, and solrock KO's easily Delcattys and Linoone, i gust them up with Salamence, and then switch to KO them.

    Looks good. But I haven't seen to many decks where people actually post's each pokemon's attacks.

    He's doing that because those Pokemon come from a set that hasn't been released yet. Looks like a good deck.

    According to Pokegym regulations if you are posting a deck where cards have not been released yet, you are required to post those cards text along with the deck article. EX: Dragons where Bagon, Shelgon, and Salmance is found has not been released yet (it comes this November).

    This just seemed different to me, but it make's sense now. Thanx for the info

    What do you plan on using Solrock and Lunatone for, you have no fighting or psychic energy and they are not worth having just for the first attack. Change 4 energies to Multi or Rainbow (not both). It would be good to have Solrock to attack with because he can one-hit knockout the commonly played Linoone and Delcatty (Salamance is not happy about those).

    One major worry is Crystal Shard, but there isn't a lot you can do about it. Crystal Shard will probably be put in decks as soon as Dragons come out.

    hmmm, maybe i could team up Salamence with Aero ex to prevent the use of Crystal shard, but I would need to also stop using the Defender Charges, hmmm I'll think about it.

    Lunatone and Solrock are there, to draw cards, I have been playtesting and they work pretty well, but I will include Rainbow energies or actual fighting energies, because with salamences power, i can easily KO the delcattys by just switching to Solrock, I will post the new decklist later, I'm at school right now :p
