I haven't played Pokemon in >10 years and have decided it might be fun to get back into it. Will be playing this deck at States next weekend and local League stuff after. I think I have a decent grasp of what my deck actually wants to do but I'm very shaky on a lot of things that I effectively counter outside of a few other decks I've read where Garbodor will obviously shine. Since I know nothing about what to expect in States/local meta game I just tried to streamline the deck as much as possible instead of getting fancy with tech. Like I said, literally haven't played a game of Pokemon in over 10 years so this whole list is just theorymon based on what I've read in the competitive thread basically. Pokemon: 10 3 Yveltal XY 2 Yveltal EX 1 Darkrai EX 2-2 Trubbish DRX /Garbodor DRX Trainers: 40 4 Professor Juniper 4 N 3 Bicycle 2 Random Receiver 4 Ultra Ball 4 Hypnotoxic Laser 4 Dark Patch 3 Pokemon Catcher 3 Energy Switch 3 Muscle Band 2 Float Stone 1 Professor's Letter 1 Dowsing Machine 2 Virbank City Gym Energy: 10 8 Darkness Energy 2 Double Colorless Energy I'm not totally sold on the concept of the DCEs and suspect I may be better off just going 10x Dark if I'm not going to run Bouffalant (which maybe I should consider?). I'm not sure I need 3x Yveltal XY and am considering another Darkrai EX or perhaps a Sawk (the only tech that I totally understand and love the concept of) in place of the 3rd Yveltal XY or in addition to it and having 11 Pokes. I'm not certain that 2 Float Stone is enough, perhaps a 3rd is needed? I'm not sold on 3x Catcher or Energy Switch. I feel like both could go down to 2x? My main thought at the moment is either -1x each Catcher/Energy Switch for +1 Pokemon/+1 Float Stone or -3x Catcher +1 Poke/+1 Float Stone/+1??? maybe a 12th Poke, 11th energy, 3rd Random Receiver or a Colress. The Professor's Letter could just become an energy but I saw it in a lot of lists in the competitive thread and thought it was cute so I did it too. Any help would be appreciated. I think the list as I have it now is probably decent but I don't expect to do very well against any competent players until I actually understand how other decks operate so I can easily anticipate what's going to happen instead of having every play be a brand new surprise for me.
