    What place does Yanmega really have in this deck, in this format? With ZekEels being BDIF and Quadbull already having trouble against Donphan (2 EQ's and a Pluspower does a lot more to Donphan than trying to power Retaliates, also Max Potion), Yanmega doesn't really do much aside from distract from focus IMO.

    It also reduces Zekrom starts I suppose, but I don't think that's worth it. I'd add that mewtwos NEED to be run in this list or it gets steamrolled by opposing Mewtwos that get to load energy. Personally

    -2 Zekrom
    +2 Mewtwo

    And unless someone can provide a specific reason for Yanmega that is a job Donphan can't just do with Catchers, then I'd drop the Yanmega line and just make it a Donphan Mewtwo.
