    Hey. This is my first post here and I was wondering if some of you might be able to help me out with my Sceptile deck.

    Pokémon (17):
    4x Treecko (Tail Slap/Razor Leaf)
    2x Grovyle (Poison Breath/Swift)
    4x Sceptile (3x Lizard Poison, 1x Energy Trans)
    3x Skitty (Plus Energy)
    2x Delcatty (Energy Draw)
    2x Roselia

    Trainers (24):
    3x Professor Oak's Research
    3x Professor Elm's Training Method
    3x Oracle
    3x Moo-Moo Milk
    3x Rare Candy
    2x Pokémon Nurse
    2x Switch
    2x Low Pressure System
    2x Strength Charm
    1x Town Voulenteers

    Energies (19):
    19x Grass Energy

    Not much to say here... pretty much self-explanatory. I choose to go 3-1 instead of 2-2 on the Sceptiles because the Lizard Poison is MUCH more important to me... I am even thinking about ditching the Energy Trans one and the Nurses for something else. The Strength Charms are techs for Gardevoir ex decks (which make up about 50% of the decks in my area) so that Solarbeam can OHKO Gardevoir ex. The high amount of energy seems necessary because of Delcatty's Energy Draw. I was thinking about playing some Fishermen in this deck to get my energies back quickly... what would you guys recommend? Thanks.

    Let's see what I can do here, first of all, it's a pretty nice deck, I've been trying to come up with a Sceptile (Lizard Poison) deck myself.

    I would drop the Strength Charm's as it is not needed much in this deck since you'll be going poison crazy.
    up the TV count by 1 or maybe 2.

    I'd leave the Energy Trans Sceptile because that is a mighty handy power to have.

    Since Gardy EX is big in your area, have you thought about running a 2-3 Wynaut/Wobbuffet line?

    I have thought of both Wynaut and Wobbuffet but I really have no room in the deck right now for them... is there anything you can see that I can replace Wynaut/Wobbuffet with?

    i guess the deck is fine, just a few minor changes:

    -1 moo
    +1 nurse
    -1 skitty
    +1 fan club

    that way i guess youll be able to get skittys and treeckos early game.

    You could drop the Delcatty line and add the Wobbuffet line, but that would be a tough choice to make, since Delcatty gives you more draw power and Skitty helps you get energies to feed Sceptile's Energy Trans and Delcatty's attack.

    I dunno, playtest both lines against a few Gardevoir Decks in your area, to see which one works better.

    would add 2 fan clubs , 1 town of volunteers , more tv reporters and drop most of the moo moo milks and potion healing doesnt help sceptile that much i used to run one in unlimted and u might want to thin out ur treekos and groviles if ur using 3 candies

    Looks good overall. I would advise switching Grovyles -- preferably to the Dragons version, but at least to the other one from R/S. Also, if you have them, switch to the Dragons version of Treecko. Drop the Elm's Training Methods for TV Reporters, Copycats, or Desert Shamans; alternatively, you could use those slots to max out Pokemon Nurse and Oak's Research. Finally, consider dropping one Grass Energy for a third Switch. A good Fire deck will still give you trouble, but I'll let you figure out if and how to account for that.

    I'd say take out the Delcatty line for the 2/3 Wubba line. U have enough draw power as it is. Nice deck BTW! :thumb:
