Electrode prime is the energy acceleration of the deck, discarding several cards from the deck, but attaching any that are energy.  This gives your opponent a prize, but allows you to use twins to help get set up. Reshiram EX relies on a flip for its second attack, which is why fliptini is on the bench to give you an opportunity for a reflip.  Terrakion is to counter lightning decks, v blast victini for mewtwo and reshiram EX for durant.  However, all are excellent attackers that can be used for other decks as well.

Pokemon Analysis
I think I prefer the darmanitan instead of v blast victini for the mewtwo counter. I know it takes more room in the deck, but it's more consistent and Mewtwo EX is something you're going to be seeing a lot of.  I'd drop the tyrogue, bellsprout and kyurem to make room since your other attackers are enough already.

Energy Analysis
By dropping the kyurem we can drop the water energy, max out the prism to 4 and add in another fighting energy.  If you decide to add darmanitan back in, I'd add in a 3rd DCE (13 energy isn't too high for a deck like this).

T/S/S Analysis
I still prefer the pokemon collector to the dual ball, or at least a combination of the two.  I would drop the level ball since it doesnt apply to many of your pokemon (there's your extra energy space), and max out the twins (reducing the N count).  I might even drop the N completely for a few collector or cheren (avoiding juniper or sage since you're already discarding a lot of your deck).   Since you don't run as much energy as other electrode variants, I'd max out your research record to ensure that you get what you want. Dropping the super scoop up should allow that to work.

This is going to be a pretty tricky deck to pull off and you'll have to be careful with your energy attachments. But I could see it working, especially in our format that has so many different decks.
