Okay after revising all of the translations of ecard 4 and 5, i came up with this deck which I think has alot of potential.

Pokemon: 18

3 abra (Sky)
3 Kadabra (Sky)
3 Alakazam (Sky)
3 Tentacool (AQ)
2 Tentacruel (AQ)
2 Cleffa
1 Tyrogue
1 Elekid

4 elm
4 copycat
4 double gust
3 trader
3 gold berry
2 focus band
3 bill's maintenance
3 bill
1 town volunteers
1 pokemon fan club

energy: 14

11 psychic
3 recycle

Strategy: This alakazam is like discovery espeon but with more hp, thatis why i like it, plus it power gives you an advantage when preparing the second alakazam. the tentacruel is there to add energys to the dending pokemon so i can deal more damage with psychic

Okay, I too saw this card and was interested at first. However once I thought about it, the Alakazam from Expedition is still superior. I mean this Kazam is sweet nonetheless, it has Psychic for 30+ (Espyesque, no?) for a pure colorless attack. Since Psychic is Colorless, and Kadabra's Psyshock requires only ONE Psychic Energy, and Kazam's Power lets you move energy around you should play some other energy type, such as mabye...I dunno Water so you can play Mantine. You could also play some Fire and play some Fire Pokemon to counter Metal. My whole point is that you need backup. Espy/AQ Tentacruel didn't work, so Alakazam/Tentacruel won't work. The only difference between the two decks is that you must play a Stage 2 compared to Espy's Stage 1 which means wasted space. Cut the Tentacruel, it just isn't worth it. In cases where you play against Metal Pokemon, giving them back their Metals would HELP them. It just isn't worth it. The combo is alright, but 6 spaces to do it is too much. Also, you really should play one Ex Kazam. Doing such will help you vs Kingdra since Kingdra owns Espy because Kingdra plays low Energy. And to go along with this idea, play a couple LC Kadabra. Against Kingdra, PsyMimic Genetic Memory and use LC Kadabra's attack to deal 50. It owns Kingdra. You also need some sort of Psy Resistant Poke to counter Resistance. Murkrow is usually the Pokemon of choice, but you don't need it. Go with a single Discovery Smeargle. That card is mad tricks.

There ya go buddy. Good luck and I hope I've helped. Also, no offense taken about you posting a Skyridge deck. Why would I care? It's good that people are taking ideas and trying new things instead of cookie-cutting Scizor decks. I appreciate original and Rogue ideas. Keep up the good work.
