How does your deck do?:
My deck has won 90% of my games I need you to fix my deck I might be going to
the poke mon tournament soon and I really need a good deck so can you
PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! fix it up.


O_o  Dude....  you sent me a 56 card deck, plus your counts are off!  If you are winning 90% of your games with this, you are lucky they aren't doing deck checks on you!  I'll assume that you forgot to list something...?

Basically, you're running a very old-school Venusaur Energy Transfer deck.  When I first started playing Pokemon, my first successful deck that I constructed on my own was a Venusaur deck.  I'm still partial to him (and please, people, that does not mean I want you to flood me with Venus decks... I'm already getting flooded with Dk Muk decks, which automatically get deleted since I've already published several versions of fixes on it).  I really enjoy his great Pokemon Power, and frankly, I miss playing that deck, so that's why I picked your deck, even though your counts were so off.  ;)


I'm going to add Lickitung to stall while you set up the Venus line.  For 1 E, you really can't beat it, unless of course your opponent is running Fighting, and in that case, get out Scyther instead.  Stall until you have your 'Saurs out and are ready to rumble. I added Pinsir... you just cannot beat his 50 damage attack.  


Your trainers are also very old-school, so I sat here thinking of something newer that could benefit this deck... you know what?  There really isn't anything that just jumps out to help this deck in the post-Base Sets.  The only things that really help would seem to be NGR and No Removal Gym.  You also must have Item Finder.  I added Pokemon Trader to quicken your set-up.  Other numbers have been adjusted.


Slightly adjusted to take into consideration your NGR's.
