Actually, I have something very important to ask you.
What Format are you thinking of using this deck in?
- Current Standard
- September 1 Standard
The cards in your deck will be slightly different in each format.
- Right now in current Standard and Expanded, I believe Evosoda is King in evolution lines.
I wouldn’t use Rare Candy at all unless your monsters have a hand to bench ability.
- September 1 Standard, We are forced to play Rare Candy in evolution lines because Evosoda is illegal.
Rare Candy is actually a set back/downgrade.
It is harder to get 2 specific cards in your hand(Rare Candy + Stage 2) vs 1 card (Evosoda).
In addition, Evosoda is never a dead card because it can evolve anything!
It can evolve your Bellsprout + Grimmer.
Rare Candy is good at evolving Bellsprout.
However, I doesn’t benefit Grimmer.
It makes a difference.
I copied your deck.
Than made some changes to it based on what I think would help.
The changes I made are for the Current Standard Format.

I would also like to comment on your deck changes.
I feel like your decks main strategy is to get status conditions on your opponents Pokémon.
The main Pokémon that accomplishes this goal is Vectreebell.
This is why I feel like you need to increase the copy #’s for that evolution line.
You want Victreebell has your opener/beginning game Pokémon.
Alolah Muk is more like a closer/middle-end game Pokémon!
You were thinking of replacing both Hoopa’s.
I decided to only change 1 copy of Hoopa for Oranguru.
I think Oranguru is great addition to your deck.
He can give you extra draws when your hand is low.
I don’t agree with your decision to take out Bellsprout.
I feel like you need to increase the Victreebell evolution line.
The reason why is because realistically Victreebell will die!
Let’s be honest, Victreebell doesn’t have GX or EX HP.
Victreebell can’t handle many hits.
Some Victreebell’s will die.
You need to have extra copies + a way to recycle them.
For the above reasons, I added in a 3-3-3 line + super rod.
Alter of the Moon is completely useless in your deck.
I agree with your decision to Remove it.
I decided to replace it with stuff that can be useful!
- 1x Parallel City
If the status conditions don’t make your opponents hate you, Than drop a Parallel City on them!
That’s my motto
- 2x Field Blowers
It can removal opponents stadiums + float stones!
Removaling the enemy Float stones will be major victory for you!
It will hurt a lot of your opponents retreating tactics!
I couldn’t find any space for Meanie + Toxapex + Seviper.
Hopefully, you will not need them.
- Extra Draw Supporting Monster(Oranguru)
- Spare Victreebells(Super Rod)
- Annoying Stadium of your own(Parallel City)
- Stadium & Item removal(Field Blowers)
I am banking on the above as the keys to your success.
I haven’t tried the deck list I gave.
I don’t own all the cards, but it is something I thought about.
In theory, it seems good.
