Perhaps an overkill of Scythers... The deck itself looks pretty balanced, though.


The Grimers are up to you, but because of WotC's printing error, I'd say Fossil is slightly better, so I'd go with those. Oddish is good for status Effects, but he doesn't pack much of a punch. With Muk dealing 20 and Poison, and then keeping the opponent where he is, you probably won't need the Oddish a whole lot. Let's switch them for Ditto. 4 Of each Scyther is overkill, too. Let's go with 3 TR and 2 Jungle Scyther.


You only big weakness is having too little card drawing. Add another Bill, Oak, and three Com. Search. Since you only have one Evolution with fairly low HP, he'll probably have some damage on him by the time you want to Switch him, and the rest is basics. I think Scoop Up will work better, as it also heals your Pokemon. Cheap Energy Costs keep discarding the Energy from being a problem. Lastly, Since Scoop heals status FX, take out the Full Heal.


Just drop one Grass and you'll be back to 60.
