You have some good pokemon in here, and some bad pokemon. Fortunately the
good outweighs the bad, and the bad is mendable.
The trainers are just... well ugly is the only word that comes to mind.


It looks to me like you have no good starting pokemon. We'll have to fix

Chansey: One of the "Good" Pokemon in the deck. Along with Arcanine this
deck has enough finishers.

Growlith/Arcanine: Growlith is only usefull to get to the great finisher

Machop/Machoke/Machamp: We already have a finisher in Arcanine, but machop
could be pretty usefull so i may not remove the line entirely. I know this
breaks the #1 rule of deck fixing (don't remove any part of the decks name),
but i don't think it's worth gunking up a deck with the horrible machoke
just to keep in the decks namesake.

Magmar and/or Hitmonchan may find their way into this deck somehow.


The following will not be executed...

Energy Removal
Pokemon Trader
Scoop Up

Everyone else... i'm sorry. Here's a lolly pop for your trip. :)

The Empty spots will be filled with much more usefull trainers, i.e. bill,
oak, gusts etc etc...


With the trainers i'm putting in expect a couple less energy overall.

And here's the final version.

3 Growlith
2 Arcanine

3 Magmar

3 Hitmonchan

2 Chansey

4 Bill
2 Professor Oak
2 Computer Search
3 Gust of Wind
3 Scoop Up
4 Energy Removal
4 Super Energy removal
2 Item Finder

9 fighting Energy
12 fire energy
2 Double colorless


The deck ended up more like a haymaker with a few good finishers for flavor.
The trainers are heavily based on energy removal, and are a mostly haymaker
inspired set.
The deck should be played more like a haymaker with lot of disruption. For
those last couple prized that seem a little to hard to get, just plop out
chansey and sack him for a couple prizes or throw out arcanine to finish

Hope that helped.
