New to Pokemon...again
I played pokemon for a while when it started but I stopped playing a little while after the Fossil series came out, now I found out I can't use my old cards!!! My Son and nephew recently got interested so I bought a few theme decks. and I'd like to know how well this one will play. (it's actually 2 ignition decks put together)
2 x Arcanine G
2 x Camerupt G
4 x Raticate G
4 x Surskit
3 x Masquerain
4 x Bulbasaur
3 x Ivysaur
2 x Venusaur
2 x Bebe Search (too many I think)
1 x Stevens advice (all I have)
2 x Energy Restore
2 x Night Teleporter
2 x Cyrus's Initiative (discard 2 opponent card)
4 x Energy Search (I have a ton of these)
1 x Prof elm training (all I have)
13 x Grass Energy
9 x Fire Energy
I wanted to put in 3 or 4 Scythers (jungle) but from what I've read I can't do that. Is there a new pokemon that I could replace him with? (Grass, Basic, 70+ HP, no retreat cost) I'd really like to know if the cards I'm using are good at all, don't know much about all the new stuff. and are double colorless energy's still available?

double colorless is being reprinted in the next set!!!
bebes is really good
pretty much you will see that the format is very fast so you will need alot of draw power and pokes that attack for less energy than they used to.
and they re released scyther jungle in platinum? set so you could prolly get away with him in there!

Yea I did the same thing when I started Pokemon again... anyways, add and remove these cards:
-2 Raticate G
-4 Fire energy
-3 grass energy
-2 Energy Search
+2 Bebe's Search
+3 Roseanne's Research (you can get these if you buy another theme deck; the other SV one has them)
+3 Expert Belt
I don't know what else to add... but there's plenty of other cards you could put into this deck. And maybe consider removing all the fire pokemon and fire energies from it.

Ok.. decent deck but changes can be made.
1. You have too many energies, about 12-15 as a total is good and you don't need 4 Energy Searches.
2. Try to get 4 Bebe's Search and 4 Roseanne's Research
3. Take out 2 Raticates and add 2 Cyrus's Conspiracy, maybe a poketurn or two
4. Take out the Venusaur line and add a 4-3-3-1 Toterra Lv.x Line. Try to obtain 2-3 rare candies so your evolutions can be faster.
This is all i can think of, the arcanine and camerpurt arent really necessary, maybe Blaziken FB? =]

By the way, you actually can use the Jungle Scyther!
It was reprinted recently (check out the PokeGym Tower: http://pokegym.net/tower/) so you can use the old copies!
On the down side, though, it is now a sub-par card.
