  1. This deck sort of sprang from the rhypowgon idea (link to rhypowgon thread here:, but it can attack and deal damage faster with gliscor while hippowdon and rhyperior are still setting up.

    Pokemon: 26

    x2 trapinch
    x2 vibrava
    x2 flygon
    x1 flygon lv. x
    x3 gligar
    x2 giscor LA
    x2 gliscor lv. x
    x2 hippopotas
    x2 hippowdon RR
    x1 hippowdon lv. x
    x2 rhyhorn
    x2 rhydon
    x2 rhyperior
    x1 rhyperior lv. x

    trainers/supporters/stadiums: 17

    x4 bebe's search
    x3 PONT
    x2 BTS
    x4 premier ball
    x4 rare candy

    energy: 17

    x2 double colorless
    x15 fighting energy

    This deck first sends out gliscor for burning poison, while hippowdon and/or rhyperior are being set up on the bench.then gliscor levels up to paralyze and poison with paralyze poison. Gliscor lv. x then proceeds to use pester for damage and uses burning poison to go back to the hand if it gets severely hurt or if hippowdon/rhyperior finishes charging. After that, hippowdon uses save sand or earthquake to deal more damage than gliscor could. When rhyperior can knock out the defending pokemon with deep scrap, hippowdon retreats for free with the help of flygon's rainbow float.

    another option is to take out the whole rhyperior line and add 1 hippowdon, 1 vibrava, 1 flygon, 1 flygon lv.x, 2 engineer's adjustments, and 1 luxury ball.

    Hope this helps:thumb:
  3. uh, you only posted 59 cards in the edit. Why did you take out the PONTs? They are good hand refreshers. Also, why did you take out the premier balls and a few energies? there are a lot of lv. Xs and premier balls get them the fastest. Hippowdon and rhyperior need a lot of energies.

    I'd just flat out remove Rhyperior and Gliscor. FlyHippo is a decent deck, but needs a lot of consistency to work. I'd suggest adding in a Chatot MD in addition to the edits I and Rayquaze suggested.
  5. rhyperior and gliscor take up a lot of space. What should be added? In rayquaza's edit, there were not many hippos.

    Yeah, remove the Scor and Rhy, and thicken the Hippo line to 4-3-1, and Flygon to 2-1-2-1.
