    Hey Guys,

    Pokemon: 18
    1x Mewtwo EX
    3x Natu (NG)
    3x Xatu (NDiscovery)
    2x Tyrogue
    2x Eevee (NDiscovery)
    2x Espeon (AQ)
    2x Elekid
    1x Unown D
    1x Unown N
    1x Unown Y

    Trainers: 24
    2x Pokemon Trader
    2x Pokemon Fan Club
    2x Professor Elm's Training Method
    2x Hyper Potion
    2x Potion
    2x Professor Oak's Research
    2x Juggler
    2x Copycat
    2x Sprout Tower
    2x Town Volunteers
    2x Switch
    2x Double Gust

    Energy: 18
    10x Psychic Energy
    2x Full Heal Energy
    2x Warp Energy
    2x Potion Energy
    2x Cyclone Energy

    The strategy for this deck is simple. Get out the main hitters, Xatu + Mewtwo EX, and keep them alive by supporters, Espeon + Unown. Tyrogue is for darkness + colourless, and Elekid is for 'attacking' someone when I can't attack. Unown D + N is for those pesky Psychic resistors. Unown Y is for it's power, use it, and Energy Return them with Espeon when I don't have enough energies. I chose the Genesis Natu because it's got free retreat + telekinesis is always handy for when someone retreats.

    Standard draw engine, and works effectively. Juggler's there for Mewtwo EX Support, and Hyper Potion is also for Mewtwo EX support. I aim to have a 2nd turn 60, which is pretty powerful if you ask me. Sprout Tower is for those pesky colourless types, which are always rampid. I know it counter attacks Eevee, but I doubt I'll be attack with Eevee at all. I hope not to anyways.

    Energies, I chose all these special energies because I can abuse them with Espeon. Place it down, and take it up, use it next turn. This can be handy to get rid of special conditions or even healing my pokemon. Sometimes switching and forcing opponent to change active.

    Thanks for anyhelp in advance.

    Good, but I don't recommend Professor Oak's Research. Instead, put in a third Copycat and a third Switch.

    Ok, I'll think about that. Of course, Research is there in case my opponent has only 1 card or so, and I desperately need a new hand.

    Any more comments?

    Well, for that, I'd use Elm. I don't like the "No Trainers" drawback, but 7>5. If you need a new hand that badly, you need as many cards as you can get.

    Indeed, you do provide a good point. Only prob, I've only got 1 Elm :p Anywho, I'll stick with Research, 7 may >5, but no trainers can be devastating. Especially when the card I want is a trainer...

    Changes made:

    -1 Sprout Tower
    +1 Pokemon Park

    I thought this could take full potential for Espeon's power. Also, combo'ed with Potion Energy I can kill 2 damage counters of a bench.
