    Default Anime Based Character Teams?

    I was just wondering if anyone had put together an Anime based team. I am just about to put to gether and train up all of Ash's current Pokemon. To my knowledge I think I counted 22ish. I picked Ash as I have always found him to be a powerful trainer. Also he has nearly every type of Pokemon going so he would be good to get a powerful team.

    Has anyone done anything similar, if not the same?

    My Emerald team is Brock-based. I'm considering training up the ones I missed in Pearl (though I've already trained an Onix, which is why I left it out). They're all going to reach level 100 soon, and they've all shown themselves to be amazing in battles. Particularly double battles, actually, despite my fondness of Earthquake.

    These movesets are gonna change in DP, I'm certain... Skippy has Waterfall in preparation for that, actually, since I've heard Waterfall is Physical now. And some of them I've been iffy about already, like Zap Cannon on Christ...

    Skippy the Swampert
    Shell Bell, Torrent
    Earthquake
    Waterfall
    Rock Slide
    Return

    Parapara the Ludicolo
    Rain Dish, Leftovers
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Giga Drain
    Rain Dance

    Spazzy the Crobat
    Scope Lens, Inner Focus
    Sludge Bomb
    Aerial Ace
    Shadow Ball
    Confuse Ray

    Cobbles the Golem
    King's Rock, Rock Head
    Double Edge
    Earthquake
    Rock Slide
    Explosion

    Corona the Ninetales
    Brightpowder, Flash Fire
    Flamethrower
    Will-O-Wisp
    Confuse Ray
    Protect

    Christ the Forretress
    Focus Band, Sturdy
    Earthquake
    Zap Cannon
    Spikes
    Explosion

    Usually I start at the bottom and work up.

    Wow thats a very powerful team! Bet ur looking forward to Bonsly? So ur still looking for the Ground Type gym then :P
    With a Brock based team you are sure to be it.
    I was thinking about being a gym leader and had listed what I wanted to be, but now I'm not so sure that I would be good enough, plus I like multi-type teams. I have never been a big fan of same-type teams, it just doesn't suit the way I play

    I've made a competitive Ash team and Brock team before, during my NB days...people were impressed that I managed to win with what Ash used.

    In the anime, Pokemon sometimes ignore the rules that they follow in the games. For example, in the episode where Ash first battles Brock, Pikachu's Thundershock brings down Brock's Geodude; a feat that no in-game Pikachu can accomplish. Many trainers in the anime disregard type-combinations when attacking. Anime-based teams may be amusing, but they won't be particularly useful in competitive play.

    Thats a point well made, however I think that Ash's team has come a long way since then. I mean he now has a wider variety of Pokemon and types. As far as i know the only types he doens't currenty own is a Rock type, Psychic type, Steel and Ghost or a Fighting type. Which isn't to many, but I think that maybe a Steel or Pshychic type could help. I mean his Donphan is a Ground type so Rock isn't that needed. But for the games I think his Pokemon would provide a good team of Pokemon with most types accounted for and ready to battle against.

    Hey that's right....in the episode where Ash faces Blaine, Pikachu defeats Blaine's Rhydon by using it's horn as a lightning rod. That wouldn't happen in the video games...

    Well, if you think about it Ash's Pikachu has more than 4 moves in gen 3;
    Thunderbolt, thunder, quickattack, iron tail, agility.
    I think he used all five moves in Advanced Challenge.
    Linkin Park-Beast

    Well if they don't have a song like that they better make one!

    The original idea was just that pinecones make me think of pine trees, which make me think of Christmas...

    But, well, he is a martyr and usually goes out with an Explosion, so.

    When Emerald came out, Hoenn was just about ending in Japan so I went through the game with Ash's team (except Pikachu...oh, and I evolved Corphish and Grovyle (at the time, Sceptile was a distance away).

    It was REALLY fun to do in fact. With Treecko my Sceptile, Sarah my Glalie, Tara my Torkoal, Terry my Swellow, and Cristina my Crawdaunt I battled my way through the game. My sixth spot was left open for whoever I felt like.

    When DP's 3rd game comes out, I may do that with Ash's final DP team.
