    The first deck I ever won a tournament with. This is the HP-on version without the Holon Trainers. It's not quite as good, but the deck still had a ton of drawpower (Delcatty) hit hard throughout (Infernape) and could one shot anything (Infernape LV X, Delcatty ex). The deck also had a simple but effective synergy: discard Energy to draw cards; use discarded Energy for massive KOs.

    When DP was released, people thought 90 for 2 even with discard was absolutely insane.

    4 Chimchar DP
    2 Monferno DP
    3 Infernape DP
    1 Infernape LV X
    3 Skitty PK
    2 Delcatty PK
    1 Delcatty ex CG
    1 Sableye CG

    4 Holon Mentor
    4 Celio's Network
    3 TV Reporter

    I assume this was great but eventually Empoleon variants outclassed it?

    The deck absolutely dominated on release and swept Spring BRs, but by the time Nats/Worlds came around it was pretty much hated out of contention. When MT came out Blissey/Whatever (Lucario mainly) became BDIF for one set. Then we got GG.

    Also,
    Could I possibly get a list with Holon trainers?

    @baby_mario , shouldn't this be DX-on?

    That's -13 cards for Holon Engine, by the way. Going to build this deck with some of the money I got from Christmas, already have the Delcatty EX.
