OthersiderME@23 is a bad number for energy cards, also you run to many pokemon, and not enough trainers.



J20hawkz@You also could have just posted this by itself, we don't really post deck ideas in here, just ways to improve deck construction, ect.

Just for the pokemon, you need set names, otherwise we have no idea what they are.

As for the T/S/S
-1 or -3 elms training for 1 more wallys training, the reason to this is it's played down instead of having to have the rare candy or take an extra turn to evolve wasting you're turns having to draw into the second elms, or search card, wallys training does by-pass this all (and since you run fluffy berry, you could put in something like keldeo EX, just for the use of switching pokemon around, w/o using switch).

-3 energy search +2 roseannes research, 1 card versus 4 and it lets you search for pokemon.

-2 Interviewers for +2 Prof oaks new theory, new hand versus and very 50/50 shot at drawing nothing.

Thanks a lot Ven. Should I start a new thread? Also how do you know the set names? Sorry although I have been playing for some time I took a massive break. I am not familiar with all the new decks and packs as such. I literally popped into tesco, saw a few decks and booster packs on sale and bought them.

Edit: reason I run the fluffy berry is because I focus on Yanmega U-turn attack. It allows me to attack with 50 damage then switch it with one of my benched. I normally tank with the Nidoking, attaching a fluffy berry to it so I can retreat for free and repeat with Yanmega again. I don't think out of 20 or so games my Yanmega has been knocked out this way.

Then they must not run tool scrapper, windstorm or gust of wind.

We have a card errata for serebii http://www.serebii.net/card/dex/

It's a not bad strategy however running 1 fluffy berry, float stone, etc isn't very consistent, if you where to run 2-3 it could create more synergy in using U-turn, but again it's slightly better to run the keldeo to lets say wallys training turn 1, keldeo/rereat.

This deck kind of seems like gothitelle/accelgor, paralyze back to the deck using mewEX (copying accelgors paralyze and poison, goes back to the deck for 50+30 with virbank), bring out gothitelle (trainer lock) and tank.

Thanks again. But that's why I run the 2 switch as well. I normally use haunter and sandslash. Mainly because they have 0 retreat cost. But I wanted to try out a more tank approach with the Nidokings. So far I have won 5 games in a row.

What is your ultimate deck list?

^This deck list isn't that terrible, the pokemon lines are confusing because plasma blast doesn't have those cards in that set, other then that, you can reduce 6 physchic energy for 1 more supporter, switch and virbanks, and instead or running great ball, run ultra ball.
