Pokémon Platinum Part 1 - Team

So I restarted my Pokémon Platinum, and created my team of Pokémon I like. I am feeling particularly optimistic about them. They're composed of Pokémon I didn't use before, and from left to right, they are:
Kalki. I chose her as my starter, and I couldn't be happier about the fact that she was female. Turtwig has always been my favourite Starter Pokémon, and I chose him during my original run of Platinum, back when I first bought a DS. After Generation III, I couldn't afford a DS until after Platinum came out, and I'm glad that she has something to set her apart from my original Turtwig, now a Torterra in Black 2.
Varaha. I've always wanted to use the Mamoswine family, but they were always too late in the game for me to care. It is male, and again, I have high hopes for this Pokémon.
Krishna is male. I didn't plan on training one of them at first, but after I saw it in my PC Box, I decided to give it a shot. Originally, I was going to train a Houndoom, so he has some hype that he needs to surpass. In addition, I trained a Mandibuzz is Black, so the typing is something that it will also have to live up to.
This is a Pokémon I wanted to train for so long, but never got the chance because he was so hard to get. It wasn't until my recent run of HeartGold that I saw how accessible he was, and by that time, I had already decided my team for that game. Vamana is going to have to live up to another Pokémon of mine, and that is my Lickilicky, Slaver. I've always had contempt for Normal Pokémon, but Slaver, who was also on Platinum, was able to show me the amazingness of Normal-type Pokémon.
I've wanted to train this for so long, but again, always late in the game. I named her Rama, and again, I have really high hopes for her. I also didn't think Dragonite was worth it; he came at too late a level for such a boring design. Yes, I judge Pokémon based on how they look. Rama has a lot riding on her, and if she fails to deliver, then I will probably never like the Dragonite line.
Fun fact: I didn't know this Pokémon existed until Generation III, and ever since I saw it, I wanted to train it. Now I finally have the chance. Her name is Natsya, and it was either her, or Starmie, and I picked her, because Corsola's design is far superior to that of Starmie. I also considered Floatzel, because I always wanted to train it, but maybe I'll use that for another game.
I'll update my blog with my feelings for each one, and maybe I'll get bored of some of them and ask them to leave my Team, like I did with Slugma twice, one of which I still have in Black 2. I hope they all fare well. The exception being Kalki, they were all bred in HeartGold and sent over as Eggs. I also sent over a Lucky Egg, Exp. Share, and Leftovers. Their levels are: 14/2/1/1/1/1. Obviously, it's balanced. Now, onto Route 202, and let our adventure begin!
