Hey guys, I thought I might post my casual deck on the forums to see if I can get some feedback. This deck is one that I use at home (I won't be using it in any tournaments because of some of the cards are pre-HGSS). Because of this I've also linked each card to the Serebi cardex page. Let's do this...

So yeah, there it is. The theme of this deck is Big Evolution and the idea is to set up Pt Blaziken and Feraligatr using Furret as my main searcher and various Trainers and Supporters to help out. I also have 2 PONTs and N to refresh my hand if I need to.

I've used "Hot Springs" against the infamous Reshiphlosion, and it's done really well.

I was thinking about adding Feraligatr Prime (when I finally get one) and finding a couple of solid Basic attacking Pokemon, so I don't have to rely too much on Feraligatr and the Blaziken duo. Anyone got any thoughts?

Please take some time to look over/criticise/praise or whatever my deck. I'd really appreciate the feedback!

EDIT: Links are good to go!
EDIT 2: Should say RMD

I can see this deck being much more destructive with blaziken FB.

Wish I had them though. Those and a couple of SP Radars, and FB LvX.

29th January 2012, 3:46 AM
hmm, strategy wise I'd just stick with regular blaziken fb, lv.x has a major down fall in active, but bench wise with houndoom prime + a simple victini = 140 off of 2 energy.

So you mean have Lv X in the Bench only? Sounds good. Jet Shoot does decent damage but effectively leaves it with 70HP. On the other hand what do you think about Feraligatr Prime?

So yeah, got some internet searching to do. Thanks ven?

f prime is bulky and only works with water type pokemon, if you're thinking energy drop emboar is more universal, they're both bulky though.
