Sorry if this deck has been looked at repeatedly, but here is my current take on it.
I've made what I feel is a pretty solid Durant Deck, I'm winning most of my games. So far the only input I've got from opponents is that I may want Pokemon Catcher or Lost Remover.
3 Crushing Hammer
4 Junk Arm
4 Level Ball
1 Pokegear 3.0
1 Pokemon Center
3 Pokemon Collector
2 Professor Juniper
2 Super Rod
6 Basic Metal
4 Special metal
If I were to drop anything I feel like it would be a couple Switch or Super Rod
From my play so far, the following problems/weaknesses seem to crop up:
- Getting my Durants repeatedly OHKO by Pokemon like Mewtwo, Reshiram, etc. (Anything that can hit 70HP+). Reviving my ants isn't a problem, I get at least 3 ants out within the first couple turns and keep them there all game. The problem is just getting knocked out 6 times before I can make my opponent deck out.
I think there are two solutions to this, but I don't know what's better: Swapping out my opponent's main Pokemon constantly with something like Catcher, or discarding energy from their main Pokemon with Lost Remover? Currently I am using crushing hammer but this simply isn't cutting it... it can delay a turn or two but not much more, and relies on coin flips.
- If one of my Durants is in my prize pile it can take 5+ turns to retrieve it. Not sure if this is worth adding Alph Lithograph to my deck to compensate for, currently I just use rotom to shift all my prize cards and start using Level Ball/Collector after I've swapped about 3 of them.
Thanks for your input in advance
