You're looking pretty good here.  I like most of what I see, but there are a
few things I wonder about.  So you're getting another Venusaur, eh?  Okay,
that will make this a very Energy Trans centred deck.  Now on to the fix:

Your grass pokÚs look perfect.  The Kangys are good too, but I don't think
Chansey is necessary here.  Likewise, Snorlax is just too slow to be that
useful.  Other than that... great job on the pokemon.

Okay, you look to be a mite short in the E department now.  Use those 3 card
slots we cleared up to get put in 3 DCE.

Your trainers are great, but I do wish you had some Bills in here.  I'm
trying to think of a way to add more... hm.  You could drop a Centre, a
Trader, and an ItemFinder for 3 of 'em.  Since you only had 59 cards to
begin with, you don't have to take anything out for that third Venus.

Hey, great job!  This should be a pretty nasty grass deck to face... the
power and versitility of Venusaur, the status effects of Venomoth, and the
speed of Scyther.  Good work, and good luck.
