    Default Who should I pull from my in-game teams for White's post game?

    I have replayed gen 3 this past yearish at points I was bored (I just finished the final strech of Sapphire after letting it sit) so I have 3 in-game teams to pull from in addition to White. I wonder what from these teams I should (emerald) clone and use for White's post-game content (which I have barely touched). I want a balanced team without too much redundancy. I think I also have Soul Silver's E4 and Dragon Dev doubles rival to do as well.

    From Sapphire
    Youmu: Marowak@Thick Club: Adamant, Lighting Rod: Aerial Ace, False Swipe, Rock Slide, Earthquake.
    Yuugi: Heracross: Adamant Swarm: Brick Break, Megahorn, Horn Attack, Endure
    Yuuka: Cacturne@Black Glasses: Bashful Sand Veil: Leech Seed, Growth, Needle Arm, Faint Attack.
    Satori: Grumpig: Modest Thick Fat: Confuse Ray, Extrasensory, Shock Wave, Icy Wind.

    From XD
    Jolteon: Timid: Bite, Thunder Wave, Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt (Bite is going away in exchange for something else after import) Evs:
    sp atk 249, sp def 1, speed 253, hp 2, def 4 (Why I decided to EV train something in-game, I don't know, I plan to fix it in emerald before cloning)
    Houndoom: Bold, Flash Fire: Crunch, Flamethrower, Roar, Charm
    Walrein: Rash: Ice Beam, Water Pulse, Body Slam, Mud-slap
    Gardevoir: Quiet Trace: Shock Wave, Hypnosis, Calm Mind, Psychic.


    From LeafGreen
    Mokou: Charizard: Serious: Brick Break, Wing Attack, Flamethrower, Metal Claw.
    Pyonta: Poliwrath: Jolly Water Absorb: Focus Punch, Hypnosis, Surf, Body Slam.
    Boota: Dugtrio: Jolly, Arena Trap: Mud-Slap, Aerial Ace, Earthquake, Rock Slide.
    Wriggle: Butterfree: Naive: Stun Spore, Sleep Powder, Giga Drain, Psychic.

    From White
    O-Chul: Samurott: Jolly: Revenge, Night Slash, X-Scissor, Waterfall
    Hee-Ho, Chandelure, Modest Flash Fire: Smog, Shadow Ball, Flamethrower, Will-o-Wisp
    Kaminadile: Krookodile: Adamant Intimidate: Rock Slide, Brick Break, Earthquake, Crunch
    Yamame: Galvantula: Timid, Compoundeyes: Thunder Signal Beam, Spider Web, Thunder Wave
    Smoky: Stoutland: Jolly, Intimidate: Work Up, Ice Fang, Return, Crunch.

    (Well this isn't exactly a SIMPLE question...)

    Maybe in gen4, but in gen5 he will tell you if two or more stats have 31s.

    Oh that's nice. What city is he located in?

    Correct, however, you miss out on the story line aspect of the events themselves - like with Victini/Zorua - which I find very irritating. Many of them are pretty uninteresting since you just pick up an egg, but both those events were actually pretty well done IMO.

    I must have just ran right by him and never noticed. I haven't really done any subway battles yet though.

    He only appears after you defeat Ghetsis.

    Ah, that would explain it. I hadn't beat him yet when I went there, I was just exploring.

    Crobat
    Tentacruel
    Victreebel
    Toxicroak
    Drapion/haunter
    I think drapion might be best because of its defense against psychic/ghost (with haunter you need to hope its faster than the psychic/ghost foe or you're done for)
    this is a really good site for seeing what weaknesses your team has: Pokemon.Marriland.com - Diamond / Pearl Team Builder now it looks like psychic/ground/ice are the biggest threats - gengar has an immunity to ground & can hit hard/fast with shadow ball to take out psychics - can learn icy wind & energy ball to hit ground types fast - plus ice types are rarely a threat (although if you get HP fire you're laughing!) speed is almost never an issue in game as gengar is fast anyway & if you're slower just level up a bit - drapion runs the risk of getting burned & that can seriously ruin any sweep plans...

    tl;dr - i prefer gengar personally but both are cool

    (have you considered skuntank? a mixed attacker with sucker punch & fire blast / flamethrower can be pretty scary!)

    what nature is it? sounds obvious but if it's +Atk (or -SpA) then go with physical attacker / if it's the other way round go for a special attacker / if it's neutral regarding Atk & SpA then you can always teach it swords dance so i'd recommend physical

    OK, thanks. Now I just gotta see if it's still there...

    What notches? And I'm 96% sure the one I have is from '96, and it is guaranteed to have been bought in the U.S.A.

    You know how when you insert an N64 cart there are 2 notches at the side of the slot? Well, on the Japanese N64, those notches are in a different spot. All you need to do is remove those and you can play Japanese games on your US n64. You can also use a GameShark or a Passport Plus to play imports and bypass the notches without disassembly.

    It's kind of like how US carts on the SNES are shaped differently from Super Famicom carts.

    If you have to ask, it probably is. Using an Action Replay means you are hacking, so yes, it is considered hacked. If you miss the event, that doesn't mean you should hack it. They're called events because they are events (what amazing logic). The idea behind them is just a nice little bonus for people who have access to it, or even an incentive to buy the game. I can't explain it really well, but hacking events really takes the point out if it. Why hack the event if you can just hack any Pokémon in? Also, I'm pretty sure Black and White are Action Replay proof, as well as a few others hacking devices-proof.

    I had some questions too, but I can never remember them once I sit down at the computer.... sigh. I'm going to write them down in my 3DS next time. Why yes, I do have a 3DS. 3DS 3DS 3DS. *flaunts*

    If you mean the ones that are towards the back, then I know what you're talking about. I don't wanna modify such an old system, though...

    Look, if you're going to be rude, don't bother responding. If you don't want to hack fine, don't do it. But please, don't try to be condescending like it's some ethical issue. I know, that's amazing logic isn't it.

    This isn't the thread to debate whether use of external devices is acceptable or not (we do have one of these, in the Dubious Disc subforum), so yeah, let's try to stay on topic and stay civil. This thread is just to ask ask and answer questions.
