PokeBeachHello, my name is Riokaru, and this is my first time writing anything for SixPrizes as you can read in my bio. I am from Venezuela. Here we only have a few people who own Donphan Primes, Jumpluffs, and Luxray GL Lv.X’s. This forces us to create decks using primarily common cards. I think that in USA this can be a great deck for a beginner.
One of the most successful decks in our metagame is Torrim. I think that Torterra UL is a very understimated card. Ok, it isn’t a Luxray GL Lv.X, but it deserves some recognition.
The strategy of Torrim is based on increasing the damage done by Toterra, so Torterra, besides also doing more damage, it recovers (using its first attack “Giga Drain”). To achieve this we use Cherrim SF and a occasionally Buck’s Traning.
Doing this you make Torterra a very powerful tank that only can be stopped by a OHKO or Drifblim UD. Sadly, as this version of the deck includes VileTomb Lock I could not include PlusPower or Expert Belt.

Torterra UL: Your principal attacker as I mentioned before his attack mainly using “Giga Drain” to attack and recover, creating a very powerful tank.
Torterra SF: By using its Poké-Power “Sunshine Song” you can search your deck for the evolutions of as many you want of your grass pokemon and evolve all of them. Very useful.
Uxie LA: I included it even though is not available in my country, for extra draw of course.
Jirachi: I think that it can be very useful in a deck with VileTomb Lock, it has free retreat, and his attack Detour lets it “repeat” the effect of the supporter that you have used.
Vileplume and Spiritomb “Viletomb Lock”: The Trainer Lock combo is used for that purpose, lock the trainers.
Rare Candy: Not a bad option to for making the deck with a more classical build (without Vileplume).
Plus Power and Expert Belt: Only for decks without trainer lock.
Leafeon Lv.X: Its Poké-Power “Energy Forcing” lets you attach an extra energy, which is very helpful.
Shaymin Lv.X Land Forme : It’s Poké-Body “Thankfulness” gives your grass Pokémon 40+ HP, which is also very helpful.
