Raichu, Raikou, and a Cute Eeveelution: the Deck

Raichu Raikou and Jolteon-EX

This deck is my first of a series of posts that will be my new Thursday posts. They are deck lists based on the readers’ ideas for decks. If you have an idea for a post, please put it in the comments section. It will very likely be the basis of my post next week! I hope you enjoy this Raichu Raikou deck.

This list idea was from one of my subscribers, Lee. Here it is:

Raichu Raikou

4 Pikachu
4 Raichu XY 43
3 Raikou BKT 55
1 Jolteon-EX
2 Remoraid
2 Octillery BKT 33

2 Professor Birch’s Observations
4 Professor Sycamore
1 Lysandre
1 Hex Maniac
1 Judge
1 Fisherman
4 Trainers’ Mail
4 Ultra Ball
4 VS Seeker
2 Level Ball
2 Muscle Band
1 Professor’s Letter
1 Super Rod
4 Sky Field

8 Lightning Energy
4 Double Colorless Energy

Strategy:

Basically, this is your typical Raichu deck with Raikou as support power and Jolteon for tech support against EXs. Use a lot,of energy on Raikou, and you can do tons of damage. If you have lots of Pokémon on the bench, you can hit for damage with Raichu, and if an annoying EX comes up, throw Jolteon at it. The reason I am only running 1 copy of Judge, Lysandre, and Hex Maniac is because I run 4 VS Seeker. Sky field is support for Raichu, and level ball will pull any of the Raichu line for you. This deck needs to set up quickly, so don’t be afraid to discard some good cards with Ultra Ball or Professor Sycamore. The more Pokémon benched, the better, so bench everything in your hand.

If anyone wants to put an idea for a deck in the comments section, feel free to. I will try to include most ideas in my posts, and make as many decks as I can with them. Thanks for reading! Come back tomorrow for more awesome Pokémon posts. Have fun playing the Pokémon TCG!
