Well...kinda. [Wink]

4 Totodile - Fury Swipes
4 Dark Croconaw - Kinda Sucks...but it gets bigger.
3 Dark Gatr - It's still a Gatr...I guess...
3 Cleffa - NG
2 Murkrow - It's Soooooo Cute!
2 Smeargle - Anti-Gatr/Big Fire

4 Elm
4 Wrath
4 Focus Band
3 TR Hideout
2 ChaosGym
4 DGoW
1 Trash Exchange - Just before my Smeargles Riptide... [Devilish]

13 Water NRG
4 Darkness NRG

Hopefully this thing'll be able to hold it's own. Crushing Blow can OHKO anything fire, take the metals off a steelix, and basically screw with everything else. My biggest weaknesses are anti-gatr, and gatr...which unfortunately, is most of the metagame right now. Oh well...I'll see how it does, it can't be too bad...right?

Have you thought about trying Slowking/Dark Feraligatr? It seems a lot more likely to beat out Feraligatr (with the more powerful trainer denial) and also stop them from Sputtering or Zzzaping to take out the Slowkings. That would do horridly against Erika's Victreebel, but you would have a better chance against Gatr and even Crobat - especially if you get the Water Gun Slowpoke (and maybe a TecH'd Light Slowbro) to get those Zubats [Smile] .

Rocket Sandshrew,
Tough call here, the deck is tight. I hate commenting without playing the deck but here goes. I am not a fan of Rocket's Hideout/focus band. It cost me big time in Orlando. Here is the scenario, sucessful focus band on "dark" poke, opponent switches gym = kill anyways! Voltorb43 mized me 2 times at the end of game#5 and cost me a shot at thhe top 8! Just my experience. I would also consider dropping 1 watter for another chaos. As you know, dark gator works well with trainer denial.I like smeargle against other strong pokes like dark muk/gengar/typlo/etc... Good luck.
