    This is the Second of the 2 decks I built last night! I thought alot of this deck after I built it and played it today at League.:lightning:dark:

    16 Pokemon:

    3 Weavile SW
    1 Weavile DP
    4 Sneasile DP

    4 Manectric MT
    4 Electrike MT

    26 Trainers/Supporters/Stadiums:

    2 Celio's Network
    2 Bebe's serach
    3 Roseanne's reseach
    3 Mr. Stone's Project
    2 TGM
    2 Professor oaks visit
    1 Bill's maintenance
    1 Scott
    1 Castaway
    2 Night Maintenance
    2 Great Ball
    2 Buffer Piece
    1 Strength Charm
    1 Battle Frontier
    1 Speed Stadium

    18 Energy:

    2 Scramble
    16 Basic Dark Energy

    You Basically start off with a Sneasel and a Electrike on the bench. Attach all energy to Electrike, and use Weavile SW's Shadow Charge to attach those energy to a Benched Manectric. By T3 you can Free Retreat Weavile for Manectric and swing for a 100+ with Lightning Twister. If you get behind attach 1 of the Scramble energy for 70 to the Active and 20 to Each Bench Pokemon of the same type. I went 2-0 with it today at League, but didnt play any Archetype decks though, so if you have any Suggestions or Advice, PLEASE let me know, Thanks!!!:thumb:

    This is a pretty neat deck idea, if you ask me. I would make the following basic change:

    -1 Weavile SW
    +1 Weavile DP (Free retreat on a loaded Manectric but still use the energy for Dark Pulse prior to being sniped off)

    Speaking of being sniped off, the only real problem with these guys is their low HP, so therefore:

    -1 Strength Charm
    -1 Speed Stadium
    +2 Buffer Piece

    You might also think about a Quagsire d tech, specifically for Dig Up, which will allow you to fetch two Buffer Piece from the discard pile when you evolve from Wooper. I have been using a 2-2 line in my Wormadam/Mothim deck to good effect. They are kinda vulnerable on the bench, though.

    Your trainer line looks like you are short on cards. Based on your recent posts, you may be trying to build too many decks at once. Figure out one or two that you really like and stick with them, tune them, and make sure you have the right engine. If you try to spread too many Trainers too thin you won't end up with any good decks. This deck is a neat one, IMHO.

    It would also be cool to find something to fetch energy out of the discard, so a heavily loaded Manectric or Weavile DP doesn't take all your energy with it. Off he top of my head, I can only think of Magneton PK. The Night Maintenance might be enough though if you increase it to three.

    Speaking of energy:

    -4 Basic Dark
    +4 Special Dark

    since you have Weavile SW to turn Manectric dark. That is all I can think of for now.

    I just posetd those other decks as ideas, I actually built these 2 decks Last night, so I am only running these 2 decks. I cant really run the special dark on Manectric, his attack only works with basic energy, but attaching 3 a turn for free is awesome if you ask me though, I like it though! I am not running low on trainers, I am just trying to find something to go with this. I wished I would have ran 1 of these decks at CC yesterday, I think I could have done pretty good with one of these! Check out my other deck too if you dont mind

    That's a good point, but I might still put in a couple of special dark for Weavile DP. They can come in handy, and you can search for them with Weavile SW.

    -1 Strength charm,-1bills maintenance. +1-1 Delcatty EX. I played it today. I didnt do that weel today, it seemed slow. So I am going to probably take it apart and build something else or wait and run my Raichu-Delcatty deck.:thumb: Thanks for the comments!!!
