This doesn't look that good. You have a decent idea, but it's just not that playable. First off, you have more Ampharos than Flaafy. Secondly, NEVER have one Pokemon that needs its own energy. It will kill you dead. Third, Zapdos just isn't that good. 60 to the enemy in exchange for shooting yourself in the face does not balance itself out, and other than Zapdos' ability, which could be a lot better, you also have no need for any Darkness energy.

If you're really intent on Zapdos, keep him and your Ampharos line, but limit it to about 4-3-2 and kill off the Cleffa. Put in some Dark Pokemon to give you a reason to use Zapdos, especially if you can find a masochist that gets a boost from taking damage, though every one of those I've seen has been psychic.

That's my opinion, but I really wouldn't use anything you have here (except in the Trainer/Supporter area). Zapdos isn't worth it, and Ampharos just isn't that great. I could easily kill it in one turn with my Hippowdon.

Cleffa: Eeek!!! A filler. I only put it in here so I can draw extra cards.
-3 Cleffa: Replace with a couple stronger electric and normal basic pokemon.
-2 Ampharos: Need more Lightning Energy first.
-1 Rocket's Zapdos EX: Need some Lightning Energy.

NOOOOO you little freaks he need at least 4 ampharos since it is the only attacker. and the greatest with it is that you do 10 damage to all your opponents pokemon when he plays a supporter. the pokemon lines is fine just take out Zapdos and replace Cleffa with pachirisu great encounters. Zapdos should be replace by Pluse from secret wonders to help recycle your energys.

then also take out the darkness and metal energys and add maybe 4 energys and maybhe some pluspowers.. still my t2b would kill this but well.. it did get to 4th place in the nationals so... i dont think it really matter

The limit for any card in a deck is four. It is impossible to have more than 4. If you have 4 Ampharos and only 13 lightning energies, then, when you use the attack that requires you to discard all energies, you can only use that attack a few more times. That's why I suggested two Ampharos, and to add in some lightning energy.

no but you see if you do the change that im abou to tell him he wont have to worry about that.

-1 proffesor rowan
-3 Zapdos (ignore what i said about plusle)

then :

+ 2 Magnemite(wichever set you prefer)
+ 2 magneton pk

now you can get those energies back, No problem.

And you know once in a game i a deck that i played wich had seven basics 3 of them were prised luckily i had that one basic left. but i still lost the game.
what if that would happen to ampharos? he has no secondary attacker so he would be gone,
and yes i know that you only can have 4 of the same card in your deck and you should try to have that.
