"Surprise Leafeon"- A Fun Meta-Counter

I've been messing around for the past few hours with Leafeon. Seismitoad is everywhere, and if people start playing Primal Groudon, Leafeon could be a decent tech for States. At Missouri States, Carington Huffman was playing Seismitoad/Leafeon which he made the Top Eight with. Leafeon helped him in the mirror, and if he had played against me, I would have had trouble dealing with Seismitoad because my counter, Primal Groudon, is weak to Leafeon. Here is a little sample list:

Pokemon: 20
4 Eevee
4 Leafeon
4 Zubat
4 Golbat
3 Crobat
1 Jirachi EX

T/S/S: 33
4 Acro Bike
3 VS Seeker
2 Muscle Band
2 Silver Bangle
1 Scoop Up Cyclone
4 Ultra Ball
3 Roller Skates
4 N
4 Professor Juniper
2 Shauna
1 Lysandre
1 Lysandre's Trump Card
2 Training Center

Energy: 7
7 Grass Energy

The point of the deck is to attack with Leafeon against cards like Seismitoad EX and Groudon EX. The deck falls apart against decks that aren't weak to grass, but it is still a lot of fun. If you want to mess around with Crobat but can't afford cards like Landorus EX, this deck is an alternative choice.

We run the Energy Evolution Eevee so that we can get attacking early. Eevee PLF has more HP, but if this one evolves quickly, then HP is not too much of a problem.

We play Acro Bike and Roller Skates mostly because I feel like it. I like draw power that is not in the form of a supporter, and Acro Bike and Roller Skates let you draw cards after you have played your supporter for the turn.

Scoop Up Cyclone is the Ace Spec. It's not hard to draw the things you need or supporters in this deck, and Scoop Up Cyclone fulfills a couple of utility purposes. Besides letting you pick up a Bat to reuse Surprise Bite/Sneaky Bite, it lets you heal a damaged attacker. It also lets you Scoop Up Jirachi to reuse him or simply let him escape from danger.

I hope you can have some fun with this deck! If you take it to States, you could ruin a Seismitoad player's day, but with so much Toad out there and the rising popularity of Groudon, this deck could be a lot of fun.
