last things first as usual.

hitmonchan and buzz always make a great combination, and maybe the
electrodes could speed up a third party (i wish that zapdos was fossil!!!).
sounds kinda like a haymaker, a wierd one. anyway just throw the usual stuff
in... bills, oaks, s/er's, gusts, and scoop ups.

the only reason that i'm a deck mechanic was because i won a contest (along
with, i think, 6 other people). i think the only way they would ask for new
mechanics is if one of the others became "inactive", and even then scott
would probably not have another contest and instead just pick someone of his

go here to see some great abbreviations

i couldn't stop laughin when i first read it.

Well anyway, mise well fix the deck.

starting with the pokemon.
i'll tell you upfront, i do not like stage two pokemon (blastoise aside).
for me at least they are too slow. i usually tend to stick to basic pokemon
and sometimes stage one pokemon. keeping within your theme though i'll let
dragonite slide; also his pokemon power is pretty cool.

Gyarados will have to do untill fossil reaches new zealand. after that you
can get lapras or articuno to replace him.

since this deck isn't based around blastoise entireley i would suggest you
only put in one more of him (normally two or three more for a full raindance
deck). put in one more of each squirtle and wartortle (a good fighter in his
own right). for the spots you need for them, take out the pokemon centers,
and one water energy.

the rest seem to be fine.

a sad note about the trainer... Bill.

i can't believe i'm gonna say this... i could not make room for bills. in
all my time playing pokemon i've always made room for them; being as they
are my favorite card. this is a sad day indeed for me. :~(

alright enough gloomy crap!!

the rest of the trainers have a right and a reason to in here, so i'll leave
them alone.

the energy count is right on, so that ends the fix.

one comment about raindance. it takes a real hit when mr.mimes come out in
jungle. watch out for him.

hope this helps.

p.s. how did you get the jungle kangaskhans anyway?
