    Scramble is useless here as you are never losing. Quick Ball isn't too good here either, and can be replaced with draw.

    And TSD>>>>>>> Night Maintenance in this deck.

    This list is better than most I've seen on Pokegym though, good job

    *looks at Pichu Bros list*
    *looks at my own list*
    wow, my list is ony 3 cards different. I don't run scrambles in this deck but, I run 13 fighting and 4 Boost. LOL, I can't beleive how close our lists are...lolz

    Also, Desert Eagle, I tried TSD and just failed with the flips so I just use Night M. I feel the Night M. is better because I am guaranteed to get 3 cards where as, TSD isn't a guarantee, plus this deck is sooooo fast and Night M just helps you from decking out. Thats just my perspective on that!!!

    I play Scramble because sometimes I lose and it helps me come back, but I am thinking of taking it out. TSD>>>>NM and I have the TSD but I was playtesting with NM proxy to keep TSD mint and forgot to change it. Vegeta ss4 that's really weird. And thanks for the help Kant.

    -3 Quick Ball
    +1 TV Reporter
    +2 Holon Adventurer/ Prof. Rowan

    -2 Scramble
    +2 Boost

    I can't think of which to put in: Rowan or Adventurer?

    Actually, this guy got it right. I don't agree with the cess, but eh, that's your meta choice.

    Stop talking about whether or not its a TRUK. That discussion is off-topic.

    What do you suggest I replace it with? I'm thinking 2 Strength Charm and 1 Buffer Piece.

    The lack of PP/StrCharm is interesting... and it does seem to open up a lot of options in terms of deck space. But wont it hurt not having them since your only hardhitters are Lucario Lv X and the occasional Boosted Blissey? Having Boosts in addition to PPs/Charms just seems very nice..

    I'd replace the Steven's Advice and Holon Adventurer with 4 Pokedex Handy910is. This will yet improve speed with less supporter reliance.

    How helpful were the quick balls? -I'm not sure if they should come back into the deck or not.

    yah, but as I said, meta dependent.
  13. pichu bros. rox

    pichu bros. rox New Member

    I was thinking also -3 Cess and +2 Strength Charm +1 PP
    I'm definately not taking out Steven but maybe Adventurer. Quick Balls were good but I decided draw was better.

    you don't really need charm/pp too much since lucario is placing the 20 damage, which will act as 2 pp on each blissey later on!

    Why not 4-4 Blissey?
  16. NoPoke

    There is nothing wrong with a 4-4 Blissey, but consider:
    • If you have two TSD cards then you shouldn't need the full 4-4 line.
    • The author wants to start with Riolu rather than Chansey.
    • It frees up a couple of slots for more Trainers.
    So given the above, 3-3 fits what Pichu Bros Roxs wants to achieve better than a 4-4 Blissey. (There may be other builds with different energy mixes that prefer a Chansey start.)

    It looks like 9 cards are tuned to the local metagame: 4xER2s, 3xCessation Crystals, and the 2x Warp Points.

    You silly people and your 4/4 blissey lines. =D

    They're so freaking expensive, how the heck are you supposed to get four of them ARRGH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, you shouldn't need 4, why waste the spaces when lucario is the more efficient attacker early on?

    We have something like 8-9 Blissey here at home. Drew some & I bought others for stuff like $2 each before they got popular. That's how you end up with a lot.

    However, I agree that in "Ramen TRUK" you probably ought to have 3-3 ... or even 2-2 if Gallade gets popular.

    Blissey isn't expensive its the TSDs that cost all the money :(

    ^ Well I just lucked out a few days ago and got a TSD for $27.99 shipping included :biggrin:, but some decks work better with NM than TSD -but not this one

    2-2 Blissey just wouldn't be enough since Lucario lacks high damage output
