Dear Dux,

My problem is as follows: I have a Pokemon card club at school and there's
this one kid who plays Grass and Water. Anyway, this kid keeps beating me,
(three times in one break!) and all because of his vast amount of Wartortle
and Ivysaur (oh yeah, and this Articuno...) Could you please give me advice
on this deck as to how to make resistant to not just grass and water, but to

Deck name: Psy-Blast

Deck type: Psychic


Pokemon (19)

4 Abra
4 Kadabra
3 Alakazam
2 Mr. Mime
3 Gastly (destiny bond ROX!)
1 Mewtwo
1 Clefairy
1 Mew (promo card)

Trainers (18)

1 Pokemon Trader
1 Pokemon Breeder
3 Gust of Wind
3 Potion
3 Bill
2 Computer search
2 Energy Removal
1 Prof. Oak
1 Imposter Prof. Oak
1 Pokedex

Energy (23)

22 Psychic
1 Double Colorless

Thanks very much, I hope you can help. (please suggest anything, no matter
how unlikely


The deck doesn't have strategy, but i'm not feeling picky today.
The only deck that i've seen that is resistant to everything is the crappy
legendary bird deck, and that isn't even worth mentioning.
There's not much you can do, resistance wise, if you plan to go with psychic
pokemon. They just don't have many resistances aside from gastly's line. I'll
do my best though.


Alot of the pokemon in the deck seem to have no reason to be there (i.e.
clefairy/gastly (base... eeeeewwwww)), so you can expect them to depart 'ere
this fix is done.
The trainers are for the most part ugly. It needs a complete overhall here.


Abra family: There's really no reason to put in 4 kadabra's. Cut it down to 2
(plus breeder) and your set.

Mr.Mime: Nice in conjunction with Alakazam.

Gastly (base): *chuckle*.... hehehehe... ahhhhhhhhahahahahaha...... i just
can't stop laughing. I can't believe people still use these thick pieces of
toilet paper in a deck.

Mewtwo: You didn't mention wether or not he is base set, so i'll assume he
is. Base set isn't all that bad in a stall deck, which this deck seems to be.
Maybe one more.

Clefairy: And this is for...?

Mew: Well he sux without a aerodactyl out, so until you get some aerodactyl's
and another deck (not this one) to put them in, i wouldn't suggest using them.


Easy enough. Here's whats out:

1 Pokemon Trader
3 Potion
3 Gust of Wind (you can put these in for the mewtwo's if they don't work out)
1 Prof. Oak
1 Bill
1 Imposter Prof. Oak
1 Pokedex

and whats left:

1 Pokemon Breeder
2 Bill
2 Computer search
2 Energy Removal

Now, as this is a stall deck, we need some pokemon centers to get that damn
energy off of your crittery people. Also a few item finders to get those same
pokemon centers back would be awul nice.


Add another DCE.

And for my finale, i present...*dum* *dum* *dum*... uhhh your deck.


4 Abra
3 Kadabra
3 Alakazam

3 Mr.Mime

2 Mewtwo (base)

2 Chansey (Stall decks love this giant egg)

Trainers (20)

1 Pokemon breeder
3 Computer Search
3 Item Finder
4 Pokemon Center
2 Bill
4 Energy Removal

Energy (23)
21 Psychic Energy


It's a full blown stall deck now.
A few explanations:

The energy removal slows down the opponent, or if you want to go for a lock
you can recurse them with the item finders.
The mewtwo's can be the lone staller in this deck for many a turn, until you
get out your main stallers. If it doesn't play out that way, then take 'em
out for a couple gust of wind.
Chansey is just a really big damage magnet. You can figure out what to do
with him fairly easily.

Hope that helps.
