I bought an overgroth deck when I started pokemon. I added Scyther and Lapras, since in my mind their the 2 best basic pokemon in the game. Gyarados is an extremely powerful pokemon and so is venasaur. I can stall with ERs while I getthem up.This deck does great against my friends and I've never played in a tournament.
3 Bulbasaur
2 Ivysaur
2 Venusaur
 2 Magikarp
2 Gyarados
3 Scyther 
3 Lapras
2 Com search
3 Bill
2 proffesor oak
3 ERs
2 Pokemon center
15 Water Energy
15 Grass energy
2 Double colerless
Thanks alot for reveiwing my deck


It looks like an average Grass-Water deck. This one is actually fairly well built, there aren't any singles in there, though the families could be tweaked a bit. The energy is pretty heavy, you could cut some there. Trainers look okay, but you could probably use some more.


I'm wondering about the Venusaur in there. It's a great Pok閙on, but works best when it can make use of Energy Trans. Right now, since Lapras and Gyarados both have mono-Water requirements, it won't help much there. I'd replace Venusaur with something else, and you have a few options. You could throw in another Grass, maybe Nidoking, or you can make it a Raindance by adding Blastoise. I think I'll go that way, since Raindance would probably be the stronger option. Let's take out the Venusaur family and add a 4/0/4 Blastoise family. Since the strategy is to get Blastoise out as soon as possible, you need a lot. Breeders will take care of the missing Wartortle. Add one more Magikarp to finish the Pok閙on.


With a Raindance, you need a lot of card drawing. Add another Bill and Professor Oak and another Com. Search. Without the Venusaur controlling the Energy, let's take out the Pok閙on Centers. You don't have enough room for Energy Removal, if you kept it you'd need to add more. Just take out those three and add four Pok閙on Breeder. Finish up trainers with two Gust of Wind.


We have to drop seven to get back to 60 cards, and get rid of that Grass. First, take out the Grass, giving us eight open slots. Add eight Water.

By changing the Trainer mix a bit and switching Venusaur for Blastoise, it's become a Raindance. I don't have a lot of experience with Raindance, so any of the other mechanics are free to give suggestions if they see a problem. The only one I see right now is the Energy is kind of low. Anyway, goodbye and good luck.
