Your deck only runs 1 revival card:
1x Rescue Stretcher - gets back Pokémon.
You run no draw supporter recovery cards such as Pal Pad.
You run no way to pull a draw supporter from discard like Puzzles of Time.
This means any draw supporter you use or discard is gone forever.
Some decks do a strategy like above.
In order for the strategy to work, you have to triple up or quadruple up on your main cards.
This lets you have spares to discard with extra’s left.
Most of your main draw supporters are below:
4x P. Scyamore
The only 1 left out is N
You have him at 2.
I replaced 1x P. Scyamore to get N at 3.
You have Lillie at 1.
My guess is so you can use Lillie turn 1.
Ultra Ball or M. Treasure > Tapu Lele > Lillie for your turn 1 play.
I don’t like that play personally.
I prefer the below play.
U. Ball or M. Treasure > Tapu Lele > Brigette for your turn 1 play.
Than you can set up with 3 Pokémon
I think at the very minimum you need at least 1 Inkay on your field at the beginning.
It is an evolution line Pokémon.
You need to get him out turn 1 or 2 to give him the chance to evolve. ASAP
-1 Float Stone
+1 Choice Band
Most times you will put Float Stone on Dawn Wings.
Than you will step in & retreat.
You don’t need 4x Floats to do this.
You only have 2x Dawn Wings to begin with.
You will only ever need 2 and maybe 1 as spare if your opponent Field Blows 1 away.
I think you will be fine in dropping 1.
You can than buff the Choice Bands which is at 2.
-2 M. Treasure
+2 Ultra Ball
The previous changes I recommended are probably stuff you should change.
This recommended is optional.
It’s a very very small technical difference which could probably be ignored depending on how you play.
Here is the very very small technical issue:
M. Treasure can draw all your Pokémon except Oranguru.
U. Ball can draw all your Pokémon with no exceptions.
You have Tapu Lele on field.
Your other Tapu Lele is Prized.
You have M. Treasure in hand.
You desperately need an Oranguru, but can’t get him!
The above situation can happen right?
Now did I give you ways to fix above situation? Yes!
I told you to add Brigette.
Turn 1 Brigette you can select 3 Pokémon
- Ultra Necro
All other Pokémon in deck are searchable with M. Treasure!
Boom, advice is ignored!
Or maybe you decide that your babies are more important in the beginning
Turn 1 Brigette:
- 2x Inkay
- 1x Ultra Necro
Than you have 4x Ultra Ball to search Oranguru later.
You can spin this all kinds of ways.
This is why I say this piece of advice is optional.
-1 Rescue Stretcher
+1 Super Rod
This advice is something you should probably do.
Rescue Stretcher can bring back Pokémon only.
Super Rod can bring back Pokémon + Energy.
Malamar will bring back Psychic energy so that isn’t a problem.
The problem is facing a discard deck that discards your metal energy.
Super Rod can help you bring back Pokémon + Metal Energy.
It’s superior to Rescue Stretcher, until the September 1 rotation.
Than Super Rod is rotating out of Standard.
You will than be forced to run Rescue Stretcher.
The last advice is just to buff your Metal energy count with a spare.
You have 3x Ultra Necro.
One day, you might have 2x Metal energy in hand + 1 Scyamore.
You might attach 1 Metal to Pokémon, but the other ones gets discarded because of Scyamore.
By having 4, you gave yourself a spare just incase.
