    A good deck albeit you don't really have enough supporters for this imo. A Sycamore or two would be good for discarding energies which makes that 4 aqua patch all the more valuable.

    I also suggest to nix Acerola for super scoop up since Acerola costed me more matches than it won me.

    Wow I didn't even realize the only draw supporters I had were Cynthia and N. Could take out a Brooklett Hill for a Sophocles since I need to be thinking in terms of post rotation at this point. Deck space is so tight right now lol. Will take out the Acerola's for 2 Scoop Ups. Other cards I want to fit are Order Pad and a Pokemon Fan Club.

    Just curious. Why the Bodybuilding dumbbells and Rare candy? I feel like the rare candy is unnecessary as you want to spread damage with the Frogadier too, and the Ninetales is either going to tank a GX out of hitting, or it'll die in a single hit to a metal non GX, which is fine as you run Rescue Stretcher instead of those two cards, methinks. Also, I don't see the reason for the reliance on Zoroark here. You have no Mallow. We're losing Puzzle. You're better off attacking with Greninja and swapping into a GX immune A.Ninetales, aren't you? The only resource you have to trade is water energies and I suppose after setup is complete, that opens your options on trades up, but then you're set up and who cares about trading then? Just trying to make the most out of the Zoroark engine in my mind I guess.

    Still, cool deck idea. I've yet to see anyone running this or even close to it, which surprises me. :)

    You don't have to specify the set and set number for trainers and energy. Only pokemon.

    If you're thinking in the mindset of Post-Rotation, then you can't use N. You could replace it with Tate & Liza, Sophocles, Bill's Maintenance, TV Reporter, or (my personal recommendation) Copycat.
  7. AngryBokoblin Aspiring Trainer


    Not Bill's Maintenance.
    Bill's Maintenance sucks, it is worse then Hau and Hau is BAD!

    I am going to tweak this for rotation. Probably going to ditch the Acerola's for Scoop Up's and the Rare Candies for Rescue Stretcher's.
  9. AngryBokoblin Aspiring Trainer


    All those other recommendations sound good.

    Just made some tweaks so tell me what you think.

    To answer the question about how the deck came about, it is quite simple. I was looking for something fun to build for the time being and I have most of these cards IRL (only ones I am missing are the Scoop Ups and Greninja's). Not too mention that I tend to have a knack for playing decks that aren't consistent but are amazing when they work.

    I also implemented what I like to call the "Ball Engine" that I have found myself liking in all of the evolution decks and is easily workable for other decks too. It consists of 3-4 Ultra Ball, 2 Timer Ball and a Lure Ball plus 1 Apricorn Maker to search everything out.
