Pokemon Deck Review - gamerz34 - Gothitelle Jirachi

4-3-4 Gothitelle (Ability)
4 Cleffa
3 Jirachi(Ability)
2 Shaymin (Ability)
Pokemon total = 20

2 Juniper
3 Pokemon Collector
4 Junk Arm
3 Super Scoop Up
3 Seeker
3 Rare Candy
3 Pokecomm
3 Pokemon Catcher
3 Engineer's Adjustment
Trainer/Supporter Total = 28

3 Rescue
10 Psychic
Energy total = 13

Pokemon Analysis
While I typically see gothitelle paired with reuniculus to ensure that it lasts a long time, you have a very interesting idea by pairing it with jirachi.  I don't think you need that many cleffa though since you're just setting yourself up for being donked by running 4. I'd rather run 1 and leave those extra spots for trainers and supporters.

Energy Analysis
I think you'll be safe going down to 2 rescue energy and adding one more psychic to the deck.  That will ensure that there will be more to get back with jirachi.

Trainer/Supporter Analysis
Since you're trying to get psychic into the discard pile with juniper and junk arm, I'd max out your juniper at 4 to ensure that you can draw into it when you need it.  However, I'd personally prefer to use engineers to get that psychic into the discard pile, so I'd rather max that out.  I'd also max out your collector to 4 to ensure that you can get one early and start setting up your bench.  With you trying to go through your deck so fast, I'd add in a few professor oak's new theory just to ensure that you can shuffle your hand back in to prevent you from decking yourself out.  I'd also add in a flower shop girl for the same reason.

I don't really have too many suggestions for this deck since it's already looking pretty good.  The biggest problem is just getting this deck set up and not running out of bench space.  You'll want a gothitelle on the bench as well as in the active position, which leaves 2 spots each for jirachi and shaymin.  So you'll really have to rely on drawing into your seeker or hitting heads on super scoop up to keep your strategy going.  I'd love to hear how this does in tournament!
