My name is Steven.
I'm interested in rare stones,
so I travel here and there.
Its so hard to make a choice
Then you need a flyer so Hoothot is an early catch
Yup Im that far
Tyranitar(never trained one)
Espeon (Love it)
Pidgeot (Eh what can i say im a sucker for the original bird)
Gyrados(subject to change)
hmmm.... suggestions for this slot?
Dragonite(havent trained one of these either)
hmm... Umbreon (if arcanine not houndoom)
I usually use 3 Pokemon for Elite 4.
1. Haunter -- With the physical and special attack system changed, Haunter has become so much better than before!
2. Jynx -- But the physical and special attack system change is going to downgrade her, and I don't want to waste Ice Beam on my Pre-national team. Unless they make her learn Ice Beam via level up, or I should wait until she learns blizzard, and buy that PP-up medicine in the 3rd city.
3. Typhlosion -- Starters are useful.
The other 3 doesn't matter.
I might use one for flying or stuff like that.
Maybe I should try using Miltank too.
I'm decidedly uncertain as it stands. There are way too many unknowns: even asumming they don't change which critters are catchable were, that doesn't mean the johto dex list won't change - plenty of Johto-availables gained new evolutions in Generation 4 (Togetic, Magmar, Rhydon, Misdreavus, Murkrow, Eevee, Gligar, Pilloswine, Yanma, Tangela), and many of those Evos are powerful pokemon in their own rights. Some of them may have their evo-items limited to Kanto or post-E4 areas, but some don't have evolution items, so...
Plus there's the question of how and when trade will be allowed - Johto allowed it fairly early in the game (around...Ecruteak I think?), and Gen IV actually allows it anytime, pretty much, just marking the pokmeon as #???. There's no telling that we will actually be limited in pokemon choice at any time.
Moreover, we don't know how the attacks list (who learn what when) will change.
Or whether there will be more TMs.
Or plenty of other things.

But thats just my opinion.
I do hope they jiggle the movesets up abit, tho. It'd be nice to see some weaker Pokemon get more interesting movepools, some good Pokemon like Houndoom, Mantine, Typhlosion, Meganium and other Johto Pokemon could really benefit from some new moves.
