'''CroByss''' was a [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]] {{TCG|deck archetype}} that saw success toward the end of the 2003-2004 season, after the release of {{TCG|EX Hidden Legends}} in June 2004. Its name is a blend of {{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Crobat|3}} and {{TCG ID|EX Hidden Legends|Gorebyss|18}}, the deck's two main attackers. CroByss was one of several popular deck archetypes of the era to include Gorebyss, the others being {{TCG|MetaByss}}; {{TCG|Jumpluff/Gorebyss}}; and a number of decks focusing on {{TCG|Stage 1 Pokémon|Stage 1}} attackers. The deck took first place at the South Stadium Challenge in {{wp|Arlington, Texas}} in July, 2004, and had at least one Top 32 finish at the {{TCG|2004 World Championships}}. CroByss functions as a disruptive deck, using a combination of Crobat and Gorebyss' attacks to alternately damage and stall the opponent while restricting his or her hand size with {{TCG|Desert Shaman}}.
