Not bad at all.  Here are my thoughts:

Take out a Hitmonchan for a Chansey; 3 of each will be reliable.  Remove the
Hitmonlees altogether -- they're too energy inefficient.  If possible,
replace the 'lees with promo Mewtwos.

Try to replace Jynx with Mime, as I generally find Mime more useful.

Trainers: They look pretty good, but I think you could use two more
PokéCentres, for washing the damage away.  You can drop the PlusPowers to
make room -- I don't think this deck has as much use for them as some
others.  Also, a pair of Traders might serve you well here.

You have no Oak or Bill... you really need those, especially if you're going
for a beatdown deck.  Hm... you might drop the ERetrieval for a pair of
Oaks... you'll likely get the E when you Oak anyway.

The energy looks nice, but try switching the Psy and Fight around... you're
mostly Psy in this deck, and the E should reflect that.

This is a solid deck, and one of the few damage swaps that isn't a staller. 
Good job, and good luck.
