For 1 Psychic Energy, the first attack, Energy Mix can be used to accelerate 1 Energy from your deck to 1 of your Fusion Strike Pokemon.

Fusion Strike Pokemon

Many Fusion Strike Pokemon were introduced in the Fusion Strike expansion. Among them,  Genesect V, Latias and Oricorio are the best to used together with Mew VMAX. You can still you other Fusion Strike Pokemon such as Meloetta, Deoxys as alternative in your deck if you don’t have the above cards.

With Genesect V in your deck, you no longer need Crobat V. Genesect V, Ability Fusion System allows you to draw cards until total cards in your hand is equal to total no of your Fusion Strike Pokemon in play. Since you can put 6 Fusion Strike Pokemon in play, Fusion System can let you draw until you have 6 Cards in your hand. Unlike Crobat V which you need to put it on bench to use its Ability Dark Asset, Genesect V Ability can be used every turn as long as it is on the Bench or Active Spot. 

Also, Genesect V provides strongest attack for Mew VMAX. Although Genesect V, only attack Techno Blash 210 damage, the attacker can’t attack during your next turn. So, during your next turn, you need to switch your Active Mew VMAX with your Benched Mew VMAX.

Latias attack, Dynabarrier can prevent any damage from Pokemon VMAX. and has 70 damage. With this effect, your opponent’s Pokemon can’t deal any damage to Mew VMAX. So, you opponent’s either use Basic Pokemon to attack Mew VMAX or Boss’s Order Mew VMAX with 1 of your Benched Pokemon. Either way, this way definitely disrupt your opponent strategy of using Pokemon VMAX.

Oricorio is mainly here for its Ability, Ferven Lesson. This Ability reduces damage done on Fusion Strike Pokemon by 20. It is definitely good to have some damage compensate for Mew VMAX low HP. Oricorio attack, Passionate Drop might come in handy when you want to knock out or lower HP to your opponent’s Benched Pokemon.Passionate Drop allows you to 5 damage counters on your opponent’s Pokemon in any way you like
