    How do you rate an in-game team? I dunno. QUESTIONABLE THREAD IS QUESTIONABLE.

    Well, my favorite type is Dragon-type. Also, I usually only carry three Pokémon in my in-game party, consisting of one battler and my HM Slaves.


    Flygon (That's right, it's shiny) lvl 100
    - Earthquake
    - Dragon Claw
    - Rock Slide
    - Flamethrower


    Garchomp lvl 56
    - Cut
    - Strength
    - Rock Climb
    - Rock Smash


    Dragonite lvl 56
    - Fly
    - Defog
    - Surf
    - Waterfall


    ...I've always found that a competitive battler usually keeps aspects of competitive battling in his or her in-game teams :p Seriously, even my HM Slaves' natures are beneficial (Garchomp's Adamant and Dragonite's Lonely).

    all my pokemon are pretty good natures too :)

    im guessing like, you put where you are in the game, and people say how you could improve it to do better in that stage of the game?

    and i've always hated HM slaves
    i usually have HM moves worked into move sets like fly or surf. the other ones i've always just used a bibarel or somthing and just taken him out of the pc whenever i go through victory road or mt coronet or whatever :)

    Oh...

    Well uh... I'm done with the game? Flygon's beaten the whole E4 by himself like... 3 times? And I mean the post-National Dex E4, not the crummy pre-National Dex one.

    I dunno... I've just never seen the point in having more than one battler in the party since it's so easy. That's why I have HM Slaves.

    Default Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here.

    Oh, in-game teams.

    Scizor@something (haven't figured out items yet)
    Adamant
    Techician
    - Bullet Punch
    - Pursuit/Night Slash (Night Slash is probably better in-game though)
    - Slash/Superpower (after E4)
    - X-Scissor

    Mamoswine
    Brave
    Snow Cloak
    - Ice Shard
    - Earthquake
    - Strength (filler)
    - Ancientpower (filler)

    Ideas of moveset to Frontier? Superpower? Adamant?

    Infernape
    Adamant
    Blaze
    - Flame Wheel
    - Mach Punch
    - CC
    - Strength (filler)

    Needs some upgrading of moveset at least.

    Vaporeon
    Calm
    Water Absorb
    - Surf
    - Aurora Beam/Ice Beam (after I get the TM)
    - Aqua Ring
    - Quick Attack

    Haven't got the opportunity to breed for wish, got it from Bebe.

    Gardevoir
    Mild
    Trace
    - Psychic
    - Magical Leaf/E-ball/Focus Blast/Thunderbolt
    - Calm Mind/Focus Blast
    - Wish/Thunderbolt/Focus Blast

    Electabuzz/Electivire
    Naive
    Static/Motor Drive
    - Thunderbolt
    - Light Screen
    - Low Kick/Cross Chop
    - Swift

    I'm thinking the frontier for some of these. I will replace some moves, but I'm reluctant to use TMs. Any ideas of EV-spreads and team to the frontier of these guys? And items too. Currently using plates and such.

    Ah, sure, why not? Here's my current in-game Platinum team, going through Victory Road:

    Empoleon (Napoleon) lvl. 60 (Modest nature)
    -- Surf
    -- Aqua Jet
    -- Bubblebeam
    -- Drill Peck

    The thing's physical attack sucks, but I swept Maylene's gym with Bubblebeam as an Empoleon (so it was weak to whatever attack anything faster than it cared to shoot it's way). I have a feeling Napoleon here would actually make a good competitive Empoleon.

    Roselia (Rorschach) lvl 58 (Calm nature)
    -- Toxic
    -- Leech Seed
    -- Giga Drain
    -- Magical Leaf

    I do eventually plan on evolving him, but I want to get through Victory Road first so I can just fly back to Pastoria's move relearner and back. Served me quite well throughout the game.

    Luxray (Ozymandias) lvl 57 (Impish nature)
    -- Spark
    -- Discharge
    -- Crunch
    -- Charge

    Just my luck to get a pokemon with what I think is an IV of 30 in Sp. Atk, but a Sp. Atk reducing nature. Still, Ozy was invaluable in helping me catch Giratina, and has always managed to pull through for me.

    Togetic (Spectre) lvl 60 (Mild nature)
    -- Wish
    -- Ancient Power
    -- Yawn
    -- Fly

    Another I eventually plan on evolving. Not a lot to say here.

    Gastrodon (Manhattan) lvl 60 (Rash nature)
    -- Mud Bomb
    -- Waterfall
    -- Hidden Power (Steel)
    -- Recover

    Thanks to Totoro taking pity on my plight to randomly find a shiny East Sea Shellos, he was kind enough to chain Manhattan up there for me. This thing completely swept Volkner's gym no problem.

    Houndoom (Nite Owl) lvl 57 (Bashful nature)
    -- Crunch
    -- Fire Fang
    -- Flamethrower
    -- Faint Attack

    My pride and joy. Houndoom's always been one of my favorite pokemon, and Nite Owl here has reached the point where it can OHKO the Blissey the trainer on Victory Road has with one Crunch. I plan on using him a lot against Aaron and Lucian.

    So, I just got the the Elite Four building, and haven't battled my rival yet. Moment-of-truth opinion time, people: do I evolve my Roselia and Togetic now, or wait until after the Elite Four?

    I see no reason why you shouldn't evolve them now (unless there's moves you need to learn or something like that.)

    I need some opinions. What do you think of a team like this?;
    Feraligatr [Vector]
    Typhlosion [Knuckles]
    Meganium [Haruka]
    Electivire [Kenji]
    Rhyperior [Rambi]
    Espeon [Teru]
    Umbreon [Anubis]
    Froslass [Hikari]

    The reason for 8 Pokémon is because this is my team for the IPGL.
