My strategy is to beatdown the opponent quickly for the win. I use
Scyther as my opening pokemon, and against fighting types. Mewtwo and
Hitmonchan are used in tandem, If my opponent puts out a psychic resistant
pokemon, I whip out my Hitmonchan and punch them into oblivion. The
Lickitung is the Mr. Mime killer and makes up for my large weakness to
psychic. My trainers are used for card drawing, disruption, getting out of a
tight spot and for late-game needs.
I've only been playing pokemon for about two months and I was wondering
how good my deck would hold up when reviewed by the pros. Make any changes
you feel necessary, I can get my hands on the cards I need.


Ya know for a person that's only been playing for two months this deck is
lookin pretty damn good. There's probably not much that i can fix.



Unless you feel that Electabuzz is better in your local metagame than
Hitmonchan, then i wouldn't change a thing in this area.


I'm kind of uncertain about the plus powers, but i can see their uses. So the
only change i would make here would be to take out one energy retrieval and
put in one more scoop up. That gives you a better chance to get a damaged
lickitung out without having to pay it's ridiculous retreat cost.


Take out two of each energy and put in four double colorless energy.

There's not enough changes to warrant a listing of the finished deck.

Hope that helps,
