Okay, deck fix time!
>Dear Satoshi:
>Here is a stall deck by the name of Healing Herbs. Please take a look.
>Healing herbs:
>x3 Spinarak
>x2 Ariados
>x4 Bulbasaur
>x3 Ivysaur
>x2 Venusaur
>x3 Chansey
>x4 Pokemon center
>x3 Revive
>x3 Item Finder
>x2 Nightly GArbage Run
>x3 Computer Search
>x3 Fuji
>x4 Double Colorless Energy
>x21 Grass Energy
>Strategy: Stall with various status afflicting moves (Spinarak, Ariados,
and Chansey) while evolving a Venusaur as quickly as possible. (Use
CPU.)Once evolved, use a combination of Energy Trans and Pokemon Center to
keep poke's alive without a loss of energy. Use Revive and Fuji to also
keep monsters alive, and Item Finder to retrieve them from the discard
pile.USe NGR to help keep your deck stocked. If true stall attempts fail,
switch to the offensive, still using the Energy Trans/Pokemon Center to
keep monsters alive.
>Thanks Satoshi, I appreciate this.

Alright, let's see what we can do.

>x3 Spinarak
>x2 Ariados
>x4 Bulbasaur
>x3 Ivysaur
>x2 Venusaur
>x3 Chansey

Hmm...well, you've got two lines, but each of them only have 2 of their
maximum evo cards. This is not good, as for consistency we need at least 3.
Since we don't need so many Grass Energy, I'd say we could safely cut 3
Grass Energy and 2 Chansey for 3 Scyther, a Cleffa and another Ariados.
Next, Ditch the Ivysaur for another Venusaur and two more Cleffa, rounding
out the Pokemon:

Pokemon (20)
3 Spinarak
3 Ariados
4 Bulbasaur
3 Venusaur
3 Scyther
3 Cleffa
1 Chansey

Next, we move onto the Trainers:

>x4 Pokemon center
>x3 Revive
>x3 Item Finder
>x2 Nightly GArbage Run
>x3 Computer Search
>x3 Fuji

Okay, this deck is seriously lacking in card drawing. That said, remove the
3 Mr. Fuji and 3 Revive for 4 Professor Oak, another Computer Search and
another Itemfinder. Next, cut 3 more Grass Energy for three Pokemon
Breeder-Venusaur needs to get into the fray somehow. Finally, ditch a
Pokemon Center for a lone Gust of Wind. This means we now have:

Trainers (21)
4 Professor Oak
4 Computer Search
4 Itemfinder
3 Pokemon Center
3 Pokemon Breeder
2 Nightly Garbage Run
1 Gust of Wind

Finally, the Energy:

>Energy: 19
>x4 Double Colorless Energy
>x15 Grass Energy

Wow, that's fine as is. We're done:

Energy (19)
15 Grass Energy
4 Double Colorless Energy

There ya go! This deck should present plenty of options...attacking with
Venusaur is always fun, and Chansey/Scyther can really lay on the hurt as
well. Good luck and happy gaming! is here to provide guidance to all Pokemon trainers out there.  Whether it's the Gameboy Game, N64 or the Trading Card Game, provides all the wisdom you desire.
