    Strategy:
    Stall with Altarias attack (30) + Buffer Piece (20) + Drage's Stadium (10) and in some situations Resistance (20) for a 10-80 dmage's in a turn. I use also 2-2 Quagsire d and 4 SSU for getting Buffer Piece's back from discard pile.

    Needs a starter. Without a starter, Gallade could quite often still pound this because it can set up a bit faster. Without a starter, you're taking up more time, resources, and more reliance on luck to get everything setup. Weavile/Darkrai is slow even WITH Pachirisu, without him it's even worse.

    Weavile is the starter.

    You need an extra Sneasel, and 1-1 Altaria line.

    Drake's is what makes Altaria so good. Reduce another 10 damage from Gallade and lol at their face when they need to flip over 4 Prizes to KO it, no matter what. You need 3.

    Buffer is excellent here. Reduce another 20, and make Psychic Lock do 0 damage. Put in 3, or possibly 2.

    Castaway and Scott are pretty nice here too. Scott gets out Drake's + Supporter, and Castaway gets Buffer + Supporter + Energy.

    Take out all your current Stadiums to make room, plus 2 PP and 2 Steven's Advice. Put in 3 Drake's and 1 Scott, and 3Buffer and 2 Castaway.

    Take out all your Special Darks. They serve no purpose when Darkrai Lv.X is out. Put in 2 Scramble and 2 DRE, then take out a Basic Dark and put in a DRE.

    I don't think that PP is needed, however, you might want it. I'd take the remaining 2 PP out, and put in a 1-1 Altaria line.

    Take out a Roseanne's and put in a Sneasel. You won't need 4 Roseanne's when you have Weavile to get your Energy.

    Also, if you want to stop Magmortar from sniping off your Bench and possibly putting the Magmortar matchup in your favour, try a 1-1 Dugtrio CG tech. IDK what to take out for it though.

    No, he's not. He's meant to be, but he's not efficient as a starter. It takes him at LEAST 2 turns to start simply loading 2 energies to 1-2 pokes. Weavile/Darkrai requires a LOT of setup, especially with needing another line. Pachirisu should be the intended starter for turn 1, then turn 2 you can start the evolution lines and set up quicker, just like Mortar. Do you think that Weavile/Blissey/Darkrai would have ever been even REMOTELY good if it wasn't for Pachirisu?
