    After looking at the dp3 spoliers. I found this combo to be pretty good. I came up with the name by taking RIO from lucario and taking LOOM from breloom. To make rioloom.
    And yes I will post spoliers
    Pokemon 16

    4 riolu
    -
    3 lucario
    -
    1 lucario lv. X

    4 shroomish
    -
    4 berloom
    ------
    Trainers

    2 Team galatic's wager
    2 castaway
    2 scott
    1 battle fronteir
    3 tv reporter/Team Galactic’s Mars
    2 hammal's research
    4 celio's net work
    1 night maintence
    3 cessation crystal
    2 crystal shard
    3 pluspower
    1 Phoebe's stadium
    -------
    Energy 18
    12 fighting
    4 double Rainbow energy
    2 scrmble
    ---Spoliers----
    Shroomish L.10 – Grass – HP50
    Basic Pokemon

    [C] Headbutt: 10 damage.
    [G][C] Poison Spore: 20 damage. Flip a coin, if heads the Defending Pokemon is now Poisoned.

    Weakness: Fire (+10)
    Resistance: Water (-20)
    Retreat: 1


    Breloom L.40 – Grass – HP100
    Stage 1 – Evolves from Shroomish

    [F][C] Drain Punch: 40 damage. Remove a number of damage counters from Breloom equal to the number of Energy attached to the Defending Pokemon.
    [F][C][C] Homing Uppercut: 60 damage. If the Defending Pokemon’s retreat cost is 0, this attack does an additional 60 damage.

    Weakness: Fire (+30)
    Resistance: none
    Retreat: 2

    Team Galactic’s Mars – Supporter

    Draw 2 cards. Then, without looking, choose 1 card from your opponent’s hand, and put it on the bottom of your opponent’s deck.

    You can only use 1 Supporter card during your turn. To use it, place it next to your Active Pokemon, and discard it at the end of your turn.

    Hamana’s Research – Supporter

    Search your deck for up to 2 in any combination of Basic Pokemon cards and Basic Energy cards, show them to your opponent, and put them in your hand. Shuffle your deck afterward.

    You can only use 1 Supporter card during your turn. To use it, place it next to your Active Pokemon, and discard it at the end of your turn.
    -------
    Start with Riolu. Attach and flip heads.
    Use hammal's research and get a energy and a shroomish -OR- use ceilo's network and get the turn 2 lucario on them.
    Then start to power up breloom and just an all out attack.
    ------
    This deck still needs to be tested. When the next set comes out.

    Thanks for reading. Please post a your ideas.

    Breloom looks like a good counter to Blissey thanks to its first attack. If only it was fighting:nonono:

    There isn't much synergy between Lucario and Breloom other than them both using fighting energy. Also, there is a combo with running Phoebe's stadium with Breloom so Breloom hits any psychic pokemon (with 2 or less retreat) for 120 damage. You might look into that to curve your psychic matchups.

    If you can somehow find a way to squeeze in Great Ball, Quick Ball, and/or Pokedex handy 910is, more power to you. Those cards were built for Stage 1 decks like yours.

    we have an article about a pile of 60 cards called mario that is basically the same thing
    the difference is, here the other pokemon is a stage 1, making it easier to bring him out =/

    agreed with Cro_King, quick ball is your friend, try to squeeze 4 in if at all possible

    I have seen some stuff on that combo.
    I'll consider it. But what to drop?

    Dear Brian,

    As always, a creative (and probably very winning) deck. I am still a Holon Mentor fan especially with a deck that runs only 8 basics (besides which your mentors as you are aware would be searchable with scott or castaway). There are people like me who are still addicted to Electivire--is it worth playing that many stadium and tools given Electivire Level X and given that those of us who run Pokepower/body heavy decks tend to run 3 or 4 Windstorm?. I would consider dropping some of the tools and stadiums and make room for more cards that would help get your Pokemon out or increase draw power, but otherwise a dynamite deck.

    BTW, aren't the Patriots 6-0 and to help the rest of us at tournament time, can't we put you back into the middle division and pretend you're not 15 yet!?

    John

    MadHatter: You might have me confused with someone who like Mario or plays Mario. I do neither.

    I do feel 4 Castaways might be needed. I don't see crystal shard being that needed, so I'd replace them with strength charm.

    what are the top 3 psychic decks to expect at cities? just for reference purpouses. 2 pheobe's seems like a reasonable amount because i haven't seen too much for psychic decks, i could see flygon being taken down for 2 prizes but i doubt that will have too much play, most flygon decks only have like 2 purple ones anyway,

    why would a deck with lucario need a blissey counter? lol

    as far as basics, i'd suggest 2-3 dual ball/great ball, 1-2 mentor

    no quick ball, there is plenty of search, quick ball is subpar in a multi pokemon deck, like if you want to use it to get any basic on to your bench before a shuffle draw card, you'll probably end up getting an evolution you can't play than shuffling

    i don't know about pokedex handy's, more draw supporters should be fine, i just don't see the "get a certain card at all costs" need, that would justify pokedex, if you plan on wasting your supporter on a card that discards a card from your opponents hand randomly, you might need the pokedex's to fulfil your draw needs

    i would suggest 1 night mainteneace to be added to king gengar's list just to enforce the basic principle that lvl x needs NM
