    I would turn the lines into 3-2-3 or 4-2-4 depending on whats played in your area. If its magmorter run a higher line of empoleon then infernape.. for a starter i would probaly switch it to something more helpful like stantler Sw, or absol sw.. etc.. and run 4 of it.. As for the trainers you need 4 celios so you can get your evolutions out faster, and you need a more steady trainer line.. try running something like

    4 celios
    4 rare candy
    3 roseanne's research
    3 Tv reporter/oaks visit
    3 team galactics wager
    2 night maintnance
    2 stevens advice
    1 copycat

    theres a basic trainer build.. you can switch it around to your liking though!

    As for the energy I would definatly run 4 double rainbow because you want t2 infernape or empoleon most of the time, and it also helps because empoleon attack cost is 3.

    char char: no, that wasnt on purpose, thank you for pointing that out. i thought i had posted 60 cards. >.<

    Prize card: sounds good, ill think about your advice. =D when i went to the last regional in my area, it was a mix of different decks, GG, Empoleon, a magmortar deck my friend ran (his is too fast for my mine. >.<). So unfortunately i cant tune it to counter exactly one deck. The meta from what i hear is magmortar/GG but as i stated before i only ran into one GG. Any ideas on how to counter anything i happen to run into?

    Theres always certian techs that are appropiate for countering meta-game.. But since you already run 2 diffrent types of energy it would be hard to tech aganist GG.. I would suggesst mismagmus, but that requires you to run even more energy. But I know of someone who ran just straight empoleon and did well with it.. So i will leave you with this idea

    Empoleon counters magmorter and spreads, Absol sw counters GG and a lot of other decks.. Mismagmus counters gg..

    4-3-4 empoleon (magmorter)
    2-2 mismagmus (Gallade/gardivoir)
    4 absol sw

    Trainers:

    same as one I posted before

    Energy:

    4 Double rainbow
    2 scramble
    7 water
    5 psychic

    Take that out for a spin and see how it does.

    oooo, i see. so the new one you suggested is more of a well rounded deck so to speak. you just took out the infernape line.

    P.S.-whats TSD?

    okay, new version of deck

    Pokemon
    4-3-3 Infernape
    4-3-3 Empoleon
    4 stantlers/or sentrets

    4 celios
    4 rare candy
    3 roseanne's research
    3 professor oaks visit
    3 team galactics wager
    2 night maintnance
    2 stevens advice
    1 copycat

    8 Fire Energy
    6 Water Energy
    4 DRE

    does that look any better? and i figured out what i want to do with the deck. lol. I'll start with Stantler then work up to empoleon lv x from there, just keep pummeling them and if empoleon's knocked out, then use infernape as a back up. =)
