RAICHUUUUUUUUUUUU!!! *Thunderbolts Fire side of the

  Bad Raichu!  Be nice...they're our guests.  Well, I
see you've met Sparks, my new pet Raichu.


  He doesn't like Charizard very much...but who can
blame him?  It's an energy hog, and is probably
literally worth its weight in gold.  Still, if you
insist on keeping him, we'll have to redo most of the
  We'll start with the electrics.  I like them,
especially the base Raichus.

Chu! *claps*

  Although the Fossil Raichu doesn't have a place
here, it requires too much Electric energy to be

RAI! *Thundershocks CJ*

  YOW!!!!  All right Sparks, I'll lay off the Raichus
for a while.  Now onto the fires...they need some
serious work.  Are you sure you want to keep Charizard
and company?  All right, if so, we'll have to ditch
Vulpix/Ninetales.  I know that they're part of your
stratagy, but they just take too much Fire energy to
be efficant, and Ninetales can be a discarding fool.
Replace them with the Ponyta/Rapidash.  I love
Ponyta/Rapidash, almost as much I love Pikachu/Raichu.

Raichu! *smiles*

  Ponyta/Rapidash works well because they both have
Colorless attacks.  An added bonus too is the fact
that Rapidash also has Agility.  The only reason
Raichu beats Rapidash is because of its better HP and
ability to take big nasties with Thunder. 
  For that one final touch, drop the one Magmar and
the SER for two Scyther, I LOVE these guys...

CHUUU! *Thunderbolts CJ*

 all-most as much as Raichu...grrr...well, they're
great in all areas, and their resistance to fighting
will protect your Electric Pokemon.  All right, that
is all I can do with this deck...it's now up to you to
perfect it.  I still say that Charizard should be
dropped for Ninetales as your major attacker, but it's
your call...

RAIIIIII!!! *Thunderbolts CJ for mentioning big,
orange, and grusome*

  I gotta get a rubber suit...

May the Force be with you...
