    2 Chansey ex RS
    3 Taillow RS
    2 Swellow RS
    4 Wurmple RS

    2 Dustox RS

    2 Sneasel ex

    I do my best to play a form of Muk in evry format I compete in. Unfortunately, there is no Muk in RS only. SO dustox is chice number 2. Wurmple pretty much assures you of a turn three biggin. deck began with Mightyhyena instead of Swellow to counter psychic weakness form the moth, but I realized Beautifly can take down a bunch of them anyways. and there is Sneasel for when psychic really get to be a problem, less spaces taken for him than Mightyhyena. Also, Chancey can deliver a smacking, only doing 40 to himself thanks to oran berry. SO with Swellow, you can drive off their stalling pokemon that so frequently appears in this format thanks to lack of draw. From here, you can chose the moth or chancy to eliminate the enemy.

    I still don't feel Chansey is worth it. If your opponent is able to do even 20 damage, you'll get a 2-for-2 trade at best. If you still feel this helps, go ahead and go for it. :)

    I was going to remove the Switch, but then I saw that Swellow's power only works when it's active, so they must stay.

    Trainers are about as solid as they'll get with just one set.

    The fix:

    -2 Chansey ex
    -1 Shroomish (?)

    +2 Scyther ex

    And one of the following:

    +1 Grass Energy or
    -1 Pokeball/ER2, +1 Silcoon, +1 Beautifly
