    This deck has been floating around a bit, but I haven't seen any lists yet. I made one up and played a few games; it's pretty good.

    3-3 Garbodor DRX (2/1 NVI/DRX Trubbish split)
    3 Registeel EX
    3 Groudon EX

    4 Juniper
    4 N
    3 Bianca
    2 Random Receiver

    4 EXP Share
    4 Rescue Scarf
    4 Catcher
    4 Switch
    3 Heavy Ball
    2 Level Ball
    2 Tool Scrapper

    8 F
    4 DCE

    The main idea is to spread with Registeel then Giant Claw to kill stuff, but Tromp is also a good way to spread. So far, it's decently consistent and can lock down a lot of decks. A strong Fluffychomp or Empoleon start can pretty much wreck it though.

    ultra ball is superior to level ball. level ball can only ever get trubbish.

    All right, first off this deck is amazing I have been testing it for a long time and I won't give any lists for obvious reasons.

    but here are some changes I would make:

    - 4 Rescue Scarf (Bad card IMO don't play it)
    + 2 Eviolite (Can help Registeel spread for longer) +2 Rocky Helmet (Who doesn't love spreading?)

    - 3 Bianca, - 1 Random Receiver
    + 4 Cheren (You have very little discard making this better than Bianca)

    - 1 Groudon EX, -1 Random Receiver
    +2 Terrakion NVI (Gives you an answer to Raikou EX snipes, not to mention its also a very nice Darkrai counter if Groudon can't kill it)

    - 1 Fighting
    + 1 Heavy Ball (All of your attackers and Garbodor are searchable through this so run 4)

    -2 Level Ball
    +2 Ultra Ball (Can search everything in your deck seems good)

    Hope I helped! Also this concept is a testament to why HeyTrainer is a very good resource

    Rescue Scarf is by far the best tool for Garbodor b/c it activates the ability and helps you stream them. I could see using large cloak to help with Raikou, though.

    I rather like Bianca because with the amount of basic attackers, tools, etc. in the deck it's probable I can draw at least 3 cards, whereas Cheren is a very limited draw in a deck that doesn't need a large hand (not like GothGor, Emboar, Empoleon, etc.) Ultra balls should help with the discard.

    Terrakion seems counter-intuitive to the deck and clunky. I'd rather just get some spread on the Raikou and Giant Claw it (it KOs with tromp damage); same goes with Darkrai (needs 2 counters though), so Groudon seems fine as an attacker.

    I think I will use some Ultra Ball or maybe a PComm over level ball, but the Heavy Ball count at 3 seems fine to me especially with the improvement of search that change gives me.

    No it isn't. Without Junk Arm, you can't use it to manipulate damage nearly as much.

    baby_mario Doesn't even care

    Heh heh . . . a format without Junk Arm must seem weird to newer players. PP has been playable in many formats between the rotation of Item Finder and the release of Jarm.

    As long as there will be times you are 10 short of a KO, there is a place for this card. Terrak vs Eviolited Darkrai is a very common example.
