Shuppet Hit-and-Run
Types used Psychic
Major cards Shuppet and Banette

Shuppet Donk also known as Shuppet Hit-and-Run is a deck archetype that uses Shuppet's Fade Out.



Shuppet Donk's strategy is to attach PlusPowers and Expert Belt to Shuppet and use Fade Out for up to 90 damage. Then, Shuppet and all cards attached to it go back to the player's hand. This style of play, or "hit-and-run", is a very effective method that literally prevents tha opponent from knocking out the main battler.


Key Cards

  • Shuppet - For Fade Out, which does 30 Damage and then Shuppet returns to the player's hand.
  • Banette - Used to evolve Shuppet when the opponent is using Mewtwo LV.X.
  • Uxie - Its Set Up Poké-POWER allows card drawing until there are seven in the player's hand. It is also a hit-and-run card.
  • Expert Belt - Increases the damage of Fade Out and Psychic Restore.
  • PlusPower - Increases the damage of Fade Out and Psychic Restore.

Other Pokémon

  • Uxie LV.X - Extra drawing power
  • Azelf - Allows obtaining important prized Pokémon.
  • Crobat G - Dud Pokémon.
  • Mesprit - another dud Pokémon, but also locks down the opponent's Poké-POWERs for a turn.
