Well, I have some...

1. You have to many 1 of pokemon in your deck. Prizing them will hurt your deck. Same with trainers. You gotta select what you want to build the deck around. 

2. Thin down your energy you need, too much different kinds won't turn out too well. 

If you need a example of a deck list, feel free to ask me.

@SlyFive0 you are the best at giving tips for decks. The reason why I have different types of energy is because this is a dragon type deck, and dragon type Pokemon need different types of energy.

Thanks, I've learned from the best here.

However, Dragon types do have different energy requirements, however, it's best if you stick to one certain line of Pokemon. 22 Pokemon? That's too many Pokemon. Trainers need to a 3 of or 4 of. 

Maybe you need to take a look at a deck list that I've built. Perhaps maybe that will help you? Let me know.

@DiegoEscu,I agree with not putting to many Pokemon, it makes decks harder to play.  The deck list that you have created is pretty good. My one problem with it is the fact that there are no rare candies however there is stage 2 Pokemon, adding some of those would help. When creating dragon decks, there are also lots of good tag teams to build them around too. Good luck, have fun!

@bcturtle150, how did I forget Rare candy? LOL 

But anyhow, in my deck list, it really didn't make that much sense for Rare Candy. Too much to have to count on really, and the deck sets up fine. Now maybe I would the Timer Balls, that maybe could be replaced with something more reliable.

I like the idea behind the deck! I think running 3 Gabite DEX whose Dragon Call ability is quite handy as well as 2 Rare Candy and 2 Korrina would help the deck flow better. Rescue Stretcher and Ordinary Rod are other Pokémon recovery options to consider, both of which are usually better than Brock’s Grit. If you need Space for the Rare Candy and Korrina, you’ll have 1 left over slot from only running 3 Gabite, Cut 2 N for Korrina, it’s more versatile as it can find Lucario and Rare Candy, and cut 1 Timer Ball for a Rare Candy.

@DiegoEscu, ah, the answer is a simple.....no. 

The fact is you can't just take out things all over the place. But, you gotta find a build setup you like. Now Fossils are tricky to work with, I generally try to stay off them, but that's just me. If you need another deck list to look at...let me know.

Yeah, I would want to see another deck. Cause when you said that I have too many Pokemon, I saw the same amount of Pokémon you had in your deck that I had in my deck!

@DiegoEscuthere's the difference though, not to be rude. Yes, I did have that many Pokemon as you did, but if you look closer, there is no 1 of.  I'm not trying to be rude here. Anyhow, this deck list is one of my favorites of all time I built.

True, very true. However, try to trade for the amount you need. So try to form a deck you would like to build and we'll go from there. 

Good.

You gotta clean up your line or else you'll prize your pokemon easily.

Also, clean up your energy count. Try to thin it down to 2 or 3 energy type.

 

You're getting there...slowly...

My problem with your decks is that you put in insane copies of cards, and I can't get those huge amounts of those copies.

That’s why, at least at the beginning, it’s good to build off of Theme Decks. The list that @SlyFive0 provided earlier that centered around Garchomp UPR was a very good example of this, pretty much all the cards could be obtained in Theme Decks, and from just a couple of those decks.
