Cool deck! Reshirom is not used that often so it is nice to see a list of one. The list of Pokemon seems fine to me but here are some things that I would change:

 

1.Replace the double dragon energy with something else. Since you have no way to recover special energy and because Reshiram & Zekrom-GX CEC 259 discards energy with each attack, there is not much reason to include it. The space is better spent on other cards.

 

 

2.Pick one stadium, not multiple. For consistency, choose one stadium that suits you best. Training Court would fit nicely in this deck, it recovers energy and would be considered. Also, having multiple copies of a stadium increases the chance of drawing it.

 

3. Add more Quick Balls, getting your basic Pokemon is important. Again, this is for improving deck consistency.

 

4.Play the deck on the Versus Ladder a bit. After each match, look at what went right and what went wrong. If you struggle with getting cards, add more draw power. If you struggle with energy, add energy searching, etc. Learning from experience helps.

 

These tips are based in my opinion and are not the only ones. They might work, they might not. I hope you have fun with deck building. It is not always easy but becomes easier over time. Also, welcome to the Pokemon TCG. Good luck, have fun!

(?) I think you tagged the wrong person. I haven't commented on this thread - until now.

@SlyFive0 thanks, I think prof research goes great, to get rid and then use charge up for energy. The virdian forest goes nice also. Seems to play well.

Actually, there's a very good reason to include DDE. Double Dragon Energy allows you to pay for Reshirom's attack cost with 1 energy attachment, and even if you can't discard it with Fabled Flarebolts, Fabled Flarebolts requires you to discard energy from your Benched Pokemon, not your Active, who will be the Pokemon to have the DDE on.
