Added some more Baltoy's & Claydols and removed a magnezone because you had 3. Also I think you had too many trainers so I took some of those out. Finally I added some fighting energy's for that Claydol.

So I like Jirachi but in this deck all I can see is it's an extra Roseanne or Bebe's Search? If that's worth it then cool but if it's not you might drop it for something that does a little more.

BTW right now you have 10 basic pokemon. Have you tested the deck to see how often you have to mulligan? 12 seems like a better number here. Why do you have 20 energy in a deck with only 17 pokemon (most of which aren't even attacking) With Magnezone and Roseanne you can search out a fair bit of it but how many times are you getting flooded with too much energy? Just a question because I'm still learning how to construct a deck but it seems like a really high ratio with Conductive Quarry and both Magnezones.

You might consider Dialga from MD with the Adamant Orb on it or the one with Reverse time from Platinum. The other Dialga from Platinum with Time Aura could be really good too. (I'm not sure if Infernape and Luxray LVL X require them to level up the active pokemon or not but if so then Dialga with Time Aura is pretty good here)

Why the SW Voltorb? I would use the shiny one from SF. It has more HP and better attacks. I would also take out the 2 Jirachi for 2 Uxie.

Well, that's my advice.

I'm experimenting with both of the Jirachis, and I've been really considering just using one of each.

I know it seems high, but three of my four Magnezones need lots of Energy in order to perform. (Well, okay, maybe they don't NEED all of that Energy, but it really, really helps.)

I'll look into that. Thanks for the rate!

I would, but I only have one shiny Voltorb. Plus, I actually rarely even use Voltorb to battle, and when I do, Speed Ball gets the job done.


I would also take out the 2 Jirachi for 2 Uxie.

Well, that's my advice.

I don't know about taking out Jirachi, but I do think that Uxie would really help me out. Thanks for the advice!

Have you thought about Secret Wonders Electrode? It's not going to deal damage like Radiance but it has the nifty ability of not letting your opponent take a prize when the Electrode faints. Instead you get a free rainbow energy. And for Voltorbs if you were going to use it to attack I'd probably use the one from Storm Front with Outlet and Bouncing Ball.

I may consider that. Thanks!

By the by, do you think that BTS or the DP44 Magnezone would have any use in this deck?

And is there any theary behind that advice? (besides it being bad)

Is let you save up space to use other pokemon or trainer/supporter.

Count the number of Night Maintenance, Pokemon Rescue, and Palmer's Contribution I use, and tell me why your advice is bad.

If you can't, it's probably not just you.
