Theme Decks Combo

     Lately, there have been many complaints about the cost of good,
tournament-winning decks.  So, I decided.  I'll make a deck that you're
guaranteed to get for approximately only $60.  You'll only need to buy 4
Blackout and 2 Lock Down theme decks.  They cost about $10 each.

     Strategy-A haymaker that consists of only basics.  Try to be quick.  It
can't handle the big evolution decks, so kill them quick.  Use Bills and
Professor Oaks to get the cards out quick (especially because of only 12
basics and 23 Energy).  If the opponent only has one basic, you can Bill and
Professor Oak to get Plus Powers to win early.  Gust of Wind potential
threats such as Squirtle in a Rain Dance deck.  Since noone has a free
retreat, Switches help.

4 Hitmonchan
4 Magmar (Fossil)
4 Farfetch'd
12 Fighting Energy
11 Fire Energy
4 Bill
3 Professor Oak
4 Energy Removal
4 Super Energy Removal
4 Plus Power
3 Gust of Wind
3 Switch

12 Pokemon
23 Energy
25 Trainer
This is a great idea.  People often complain about not being able to grab
certain cards, and since each pre-constructed has fixed cards, you will be
sure to be able to fix this deck.
   I do not know what is in the Lock Down pre-constructed, but I almost know
the Blackout deck by heart.  It was the first deck that I played with,
besides the 2-player starter.  This is a pretty good version of that deck
and what is inside Lock Down.
   The only things I would change is that I would throw in a few double
colorless energy.  I believe there are some in one of the 2
pre-constructeds, although I could be wrong.  This would help with
Hitmonchan's retreat, and with Farfetch'd's speed.  Besides that, this is a
great deck.
