Basic Strategy We all know how important DCE and Rescue Energy is in this format, and we know that Prism Energy and Rainbow Energy also see play. Well, Scizor might be able to do something about it. I think this deck needs to be played as a pseudo-rush deck and you should utilize Skarmory as your starter. Skarmory UD/CL: This is an 80 HP Basic that is resistant to Psychic. That also makes it very solid in that it will not get donked. Then for [M] you get to use Steel Coat to search your deck for another [M] and attach it to one of your Pokémon. Scizor Prime: This is a 100 HP Stage one. Its Body prevents damage by Pokémon with Special Energies attached. Its attack does 30+20 for each Metal Energy attached to Scizor. If you use 2 Metal Energy to pay for the attack, you are doing 70 for 2. The idea is obviously to use Steel Coat on turn 1 and then attack with Scizor on turn two.
