I'm quite impressed with Henry's deck building skills, this 10 year old has more game than alot of adults I know!  The deck uses plenty of solid Trainers as well as the accurate amount of energy for this type of deck.  My only concern lies in the Pokemon.  Don't get me wrong... Haunter, Mewtwo and Ditto are 3 of the most powerful Pokemon currently available in the card pool.  The roblem arises when you run into a "resistance to psychic" deck.  This match-up is nearly an auto-loss situation and 2 Ditto's is not enough to compensate so I increased Ditto's count to 4! 

Here's my "Fix"

4 F. Gastly
3 F. Haunter
4 Promo Mewtwo
4 Ditto

4 Professor Oak
4 Plus Power
4 Super Energy Removal
3 Scoop Up
3 Gust of Wind
2 Item Finder
2 Computer Search
2 Mr. Fuji
1 Gambler

16 Psychic
4 Double Colorless Energy

Final Note:  This version now has 12 basics...lowering the probability of muligans!

Hope this helps...have fun!
