    Some random ideas:

    1-1 Sunflora for healing or 2-2 Gyarados to take advantage of the bench damage.
    3 Phione + 2-3 Call Energy to get setup more quickly.

    If built correctly, it has at least a 70-30 matchup against Fossils and OK matchups against GG and ECO.

    I have been toying around with using Torterra in Garchomp to do the 100 every turn after leveling up. Idea is to use Restore, place torterra on the bench with 3 grass. Next turn attch then bring it up and hit for 100. Next turn Lv Up and hit for 100 again doing the 30 self damage. Wash and repeat! Chomp is your Backup hitter so putting in the random energy works well... but again, it was just something I was toying with!!

    Meches don't forget that not being able to use Frenzy Plant the turn after you use it is an effect on Torterra. That effect is removed by leveling up. Your Torterra can Frenzy Plant for 100, level up the next turn and Frenzy Plant for 100 again, *then* resort Vigorous Dash or Earthquake.

    The only downside I see to a Chomp Rebirth with Torterra is all the grass energy you would have to run. Wouldn't leave tons of room for other types.

    I dunno bout that... currently with Flex I an running 6 Psychic, 2 Water, 2 Fire, 2 ELectric, 1 Fighting, 1 Grass. So it is possible to use it effectively! It might need to have a Tech Holon Castform ot help with things and that is easy enough to search out!

    Like I siad, it was just a toying situaton right now.....
