    Yeah, i know Jumpluffs attack isn`t the best, but I like the body. Think about it; your opponent is attaking with Gallade. He/she must turn 3 prise cards because of jumpluffs resistance to knock it out. And then you just flip right and he/she has turned his tree prises just for nothing! I won`t play it in any tournament probably, but the deck might be fun. Ideas what to play with it?

    Something that hits and runs since Jumpluff has a free retreat cost. Then you are saving Jumpluff just for its flips and using a better attacker. You can even run Cessation on your own attacker just to stop your opponents use of pesky PokeBodies.

    I was looking at Jumpluff too, since it was like the deck everybody played back when Aquapolis was introduced. As NoPoke already pointed out, hit'n'run would be fun; however there are only a few Pokémon with that sort of attack and both are rather subpar when it comes to attacking (Furret SW, Lopunny DP).

    Definitely run Unown G with it though, to make it even more invincible.

    Skiploom has a hit and run attack, and free retreat! But you wouldn't put a cessation crystal on it!

    Just a pity the damage output isn't better and the HP for each stage. I agree with metagross that the invincible idea is hot.

    Perhaps something that uses scramble well?

    Yeah, I used Donphan before. Donphan-Jumpluff, aka Dumbo. Autoloss to Magmortar, so not your best bet.

    Unown G, definitely.

    Gengar (DP?) is an interesting combo. They both spread damage, and Gengar snipes-and-runs. Two stage 2's, though, and while they're annoying, they just don't do enough damage with enough speed...

    3-2-3 Jumpluff / 3 candies.
    3-3 Donphan.
    1-1 Dugtrio.
    1 Shuckle.

    I see what you mean by the Gallade..........lol they flip 3 prizes which could be a waste if you get lucky........ if ya do....... you can stall quite a while.
