    Hi I have been working on this Tapu Bulu deck for a few months now. This is the most effective deck I have tested. I'm open to any improvements and suggestions someone has to help me develop this deck.

    Thank you MadDanX

    Since Vikavolt GX does not make use of aether stadium, maybe cut it?

    You want to play 3 Lele, and at least 2 Fury Belt

    I fear the supporter count is too low. With this deck, I like to go: 4 sycamore, 3 N, 2 Skyla OR 3 sycamore, 2 N, 4 skyla. Both options have proven effective to me.
    I don't like using Vikavolt GX since I don't believe it benefits you much.

    I've recently been testing a 3-0-2 vikavolt line with 4 rare candy and 1 or 2 heavy balls. Though it can be a little hard to get vikavolt going at times, I believe it's the most efficient way to play this deck in terms of space.

    Some hot techs I like are Clefairy from Evolutions and the promo stardust Jirachi. Both of these cards help you greatly against Gardevoir.

    thank you for the recommendations on the deck, I really like the idea of the clefairy and jirachi cards, and I'm gonna test the decks with more supporters like you said. Is it worth playing fury belt?
  7. Jpkemperor Deck Builder and Researcher


    My take on the tool you should use is this:

    If you want to hit hard, only use choice band.
    If you want to survive longer, use fury belt AND Aether paradise conservation area.

    I don't believe using both helps you. If anything, it clogs your deck more than needed.
  8. gumball51321 *thumbs up*


    Not necessarily. Every single Bulu list that topped this season play 3 Fury Belt and 2 Choice Band. Oh, and 0 lists that topped played Aether Paradise.
    MadDanX and Jpkemperor like this.
  9. MadDanX Aspiring Trainer


    I will probably test both ideas to get a sense of what I need. I'm definitely gonna test clefairy though. Is that a one of in the deck?
  10. Deingel Aspiring Trainer


    I'd rather play Po Town over Aether Paradise

    It helps you get over Garde-GX and can help out knock out Stage 1s (e.g. Golisopod and Ninetails) without needing a Choice Band

    Also, try going -1 Super Rod for +1 Stretcher; Stretcher's ability to immediately add a Pokemon to hand might prove helpful, and considering you already run 2 Energy Recycler and 1 Brock's Grit, that -1 Super Rod isnt going to hurt you

    Sounds good, ive tested those combos today, seems to be dealing with gardevoir better than before :D

    I would cut Aether Paradise. I run a couple Heavy Ball and it's done well for me.
