>2 Gust of Wind - helps me get to the Blastoise or an unpowered Hitmonchan
>2 Professor Oak - (see Electabuzz)
>2 Pokemon Trader - Helps me get that Raichu even faster
>3 Defender - good against fighting decks.stops Electabuzz's self-damage and

>3 Pluspower - agility deals low damage and helps thunder take Big Basics in

>4 Energy Removal - to remove their bench energy while their active faints
>21 Electric Energy
>2 Double Colorless energy

Ah, a Fun deck!  Electric decks are good right now...very few cards are resistant to Electric and the weakness to Fighting isn't that bad since no one is playing too much Fighting lately!  A few tweaks can make this deck a fun, Killer deck!

my "Fix"

4 Electabuzz
4 Promo Pikachu
3 Base Raichu
3 Doduo
2 Dodrio
2 Chansey

4 Energy Removal
4 Bill
3 Pokemon Trader
2 Professor Oak
4 Defender
3 Gust of Wind

18 Electric

"The best offense is a good Defense"
An unorthodox strategy for an offensive deck...but one that could really work!  Since you know you will always be attacking with your electric Pokemon, Defender and Retreat aid will give you optimal useage out of them!  Defender gets in double duty with 'Buzz and Chansey by preventing damage from both their attacks, and then the opponents!  Gust of Wind helps optimize your attacks by finishing off Pokemon your opponent retreats, and the traders help build your 2 evolution lines quicker!

Hope this helps...have fun!
