    Hi I was wondering if anyone could tell me some good ideas for a donk deck and help me playtest them because i feel this format needs a donk deck. Also making me a list for one would be very nice and if you try it out even better! Thanks.

    Not sure if anyone is actually playing this at the momentbut I think pheromosa gx’s fast raid is the only “attack on your first turn” option...so I’d play 4 of those with 4 Kukui’s, 4 fury belts, and a couple evolutions mew and marshadow gx’s for type coverage. Downsides are that you don’t have much of a game plan if your opponent gets a Brigette at any time...well yeah

    oo I think you're right! latios would be better then, cuz you could get to 70 w/ kukui and FFB...still feels bad compared to expanded where you get laserbank, plus powers, shaymin for crazy turn 1 draw power, but it would be fun to mess around with

    My idea would hardly work, but could be fun:

    1. Regirock-EX active with Float Stone attached
    2. 3 Regirock-EX/Diancie Prism Star on bench.
    3. Fighting Fury Belt attached to Marshadow-GX
    4. Max Elixir a Psychic energy on Marshadow-GX
    5. Get a Latios-EX in discard whether it be via Ultra Ball or other means
    6. Attach Strong Energy to Marshadow-GX
    7. Retreat into Marshadow-GX
    8. Professor Kukui for two cards

    150 damage with Fast Raid, theoretically 300 with weakness, or 360 if you attach Choice Band which wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Now that exact situation is probably never going to happen, but if you get even a few of those, you probably could get some cheeky wins.

    Yeah thanks for the idea just possibly you could pair it with something to make it more consistent and possibly a turn 2 donk would work or be a possibility.

    I could try some other more consistent ways to get a marshadow in the active copying pheromosa but thanks.

    and a lot of decks in the format don't use basics so that could work, your idea is probably with pikachuuuu101 is probably the best so far.

    you could play a mixture of Latios EX, Pheramosa GX, and Marshadow GX for type coverage (Zorua, Buzzwole GX, Zygarde EX, you get the idea) with 4 Rainbow energy, 4 Float stone, 4 Professor Kukui and other stuff and it could work.

    Heatmor (Breakpoint) isn't a bad choice for a donk deck, especially when teamed with Volcanion EX.

    Heatmor can hit for 70 (with one energy, band, and any stadium), and Volcanion (Steam up) can power him up quickly first turn.

    When SM6 comes out, Pheromosa GX and Beast Energy will be broken. Literally broken. I'm already going to play it in the first SM6-legal Regionals I can!
    Pheromosa GX+Beast Energy+Kukui+Choice Band=110 on the first turn! OOOSH!

    How do you pay the grass energy cost?

    I believe beast provides one of any energy?

    No it’s a single colorless energy

    Technically he could use Max Elixir, but that doesn't seem very consistent. (I'm aware I used Max Elixir in my previous post, however that was a hypothetical best scenario, not one that's realistic.)
