In a Garchomp deck, you should run a couple DRE, because if you use them on Smeargle, you will not have to worry about pokemon with multi-colored energy on them. And since Garchomp decks need to have Smeargle in them, This is how I use my'n. Pokemon=17 4-2-4 Garchomp MT 4 Smeargle SW 3 Stantler SW Energy=18 2 Grass Energy 2 Water Energy 2 Fire Energy 2 Electric Energy 2 Physic Energy 2 Fighting Energy 1 Metal Energy 1 Dark Energy 2 Boost Energy 2 DRE Energy Trainers=25 3 Rare Candy 3 Bebe Search 3 Mr.Stone's Project 3 Plus Power 2 TGM 2 TGW 2 POV 2 NM 2 TVR 3 Roseanne's Research Strategy- Garchomp does 110 damage for quick knock outs Garchomp. Smeargle gets me my energies according to what I need and Stantler gets my Supportors and confuses my opponents. The rest of the strategy should be very clear according to what the Trainer/Supportors do. The DRE is so when I copy my opponents move with a smeargle, I wont need to worry about pokemon with multi-colored energy. Think it is a good strategy?
