    Hey there, Pokemon trainers. I just had a deck idea that I wanted to share with all of you:

    Subject: Jirachi LA/Ariados MT


    Pokemon (15):

    4 Jirachi LA
    4 Spinarak MT
    4 Ariados MT
    2 Unown Q MD
    1 Burmy Trash Cloak

    Trainers (30):

    4 Roseanne's Research
    4 Oak's Visit
    4 Team Galactic's Mars
    4 Cynthia's Feelings
    4 Bebe's Search
    4 Energy Pickup
    3 Energy Switch
    3 Night Maintenance

    Energy (15):

    4 Multi Energy
    4 Metal Energy sp
    6 Metal Energy
    1 Grass Energy

    Strategy: make retreat big with Ariados' poke-body, and OHKO every poke in the game with Doom Desire!!!

    not a bad idea, you should try it at BRs but it could be a problem because both jirachi and ariados have low health and pokemon that can do 70-80 a turn could kill them easily, but i like the idea

    has some good potential
    run snowpoint
    -3 energy switch
    +3 snowpoint
    and burmy = bleh w/o energy link
    -1 burmy
    +1 amulet coin
    never attack with ariados
    -1 grass
    +1 amulet coin
    amulet coin helps with starting. and this has some potential
    -4 mars
    +2 candy
    +1-0-1 noir tech. just to screw with them
    -1 rosy
    -1 bebe
    +2 wager disrupts hand better then mars

    well the opponent may have warp points to counter jirachi so you should have a couple of them as well...

    If you're going for Stage 2 tech (which is hard, hard thing to do) I'll warmly suggest Metagross line. As there's a single card which is one of the best teches in the DP-on to which you can do absolutely nothing about.

    ...Unown G.

    Basically, if your opponent plays down Unown G, you can scoop the game. With Metagross line, you can still keep fighting somewhat.

    Seems like a good idea. However, don't forget that once your opponent plays Warp Point, Jirachi's Doom Desire effect goes away as the defending pokemon goes to the bench. The only way to prevent that is by draining the opponents hand (Cessation Crystal would be great to stop Claydol, but it's gone now...) and hoping the opponent didn's top-deck a warp point or a switch. Good luck with the deck.

    Burmy Trash Cloak is in there why?

    I would understand why he is in there if you could use his power from the bench but he needs to be active to use ur power and if he is ur active then ur ariados make his retreat 5 (if u have all 4 out) and thats never good
