I see where you're going with this.  Powerful Psy, fighting to take care of
those colourless stick-in-the-muds... a quasi-haymaker.  In that light,
then, I'll present my suggestions.

Number one: Where on Earth did you get the insane notion that 7 Fight E will
be enough to power the Hitmos?  Even the standard Hay uses 12 or so, and it
doesn't have 'Lee.  We'll have to up that dramatically.  Lucky for you, I
see some candidates for cutting.

I'll do something unusual here, and skip to the trainers right away.  What
you have is pretty good, but you have some questionable choices in here. 
Drop the potions, super-duper potion, switches, and the recycle.  I think
you can also get away with dropping one GoW, but if you like 4 that's fine.

Now to add in some trainers: I like the Scoops, so let's put in another. 
With your miniscule energy here, I think Retrieval should be mandatory -- so
let's put in two.

We still have 5 card slots open, so let's put in some more energy.  I'd say
10 Psy/10 Fight -- and I'm not sure you need all 4 DCE.  With only two
Kangaskhan, you might do just as well with only 3 DCE, unless you're
counting on Comet Punch as a primary weapon.  If you decide to drop the DCE,
replace it with 2 ERemoval (we had a card slot left over).  If you chose not
to drop a GoW, you can probably drop to 2 DCE to make room for that third
ER.  You're a little short on those.

Not bad overall... I don't think I made any changes to the pokemon.  Pretty
nice job with this deck, and good luck.

Z
