Nice idea.  I like the "Speedrill" idea mixed with heavy-hitting psy power. 
Here are my suggestions:

If possible, replace the Abra/Kadabra line with 3 promo Mewtwos.  Basic,
more HP, powers up faster... just a superior pokemon, IMO.  That should
clear up four card slots.

Hm... you could leave in Jynx, or change those to Mimes.  Doesn't much
matter either way, though Mime has that nice power and a cheaper retreat.

Use Breeders instead of Kakunas.  Your point here is (I take it) Beedrill,
so you'll want to get it out fast.

Hmm... I like Koffing, but Tangela's just a wee bit too slow for my tastes. 
Try replacing with Scyther... yesss, that's more like it.  I'm sure you know
the reasons for Scyther.  If possible, I'd even like to see a third Scy go
in here... maybe by dropping a Jynx/Mime?  Hm.  That's up to you, as it's a
personal taste sort of thing.

Now: we can use those four card slots we opened earlier to put in 4 DCE. 
These are essential in a speedy grass deck, to power up Scyther and

Your trainers are quite good and well thought out.  My only suggestion here
is to replace the Switches with GoW, because we've made this into something
of a low-retreat deck.  If you replace Jynx with Mime, the highest retreat
you'll have will be Mewtwo, and that's easily made up for with Energy

Very nice work on this one.  Good luck to you.
