I whipped this up at 2am one night, and so far, it has only lost once before I fixed it. The deck basically beats down the most popular decks around here, since almost EVERYONE has their entire bench completely filled by the second turn. Dark Hypno plays off this and completely massacres them. When their bench is no longer sufficient enough, or they prefer to pile tons of energy on a single pokemon (usually dark tyranitar or dragonite), Jumpluff squishes them. Not to mention this does very well against Monarchy decks.
Then there is Togetic for a good shield against dark pokemon, and Pidgeot for everyday searching needs, but both are good against Rayquaza, provided I find my strength charm card. Rattata acts as a sort of mini-dunsparce that has greater purpose than just strike and run. Dark Raticate is useful for his poison attacks, and free retreat when someone Warp Points me. And Raticate is just there for picking up useful cards in my discard pile if I desperately need it.
And lastly, the gyms are self-explanitory, and Tricky Gym is only there until I find a more useful card, since it helps when someone annoying retreats and ex that has only 10-20 hp left.
The only problem I have with this set-up is how long it takes to get out Pidgeot sometimes. I really need to get more rare candy cards, and any other suggestions would be helpful.

Not a bad idea, but theres too much going on in the deck. Granted, taht tends to be Dark Hypno's problem-its really a supporting Pokemon, and unfortunately for it, most of what it can support has better alternatives.
