    I would like some help for my team in Platinum:

    Empoleon:
    Surf
    Earthquake
    Drill Peck
    Flash Cannon

    I'm considering replacing something for Ice Beam, since he's a special attacker, but I don't know what. Also, I have Glaceon for that.

    Rapidash:
    Flamethrower
    Flare Blitz
    Megahorn
    Strength

    Not much to this one. I have two fire moves in case I don't want recoil damage.

    Roserade:
    Petal Dance
    Giga Drain
    Sludge Bomb
    Return

    Again, not much to this one. I have Petal Dance to hit hard, and Giga Drain to heal.

    Togekiss:
    Air Slash
    Aura Sphere
    Psychic
    Fly

    Serene Grace Togekiss. I was also considering Gallade, because both can have psychic and fighting moves. But I have a hard time deciding between the two. If I used Gallade, he would have Psycho Cut, Close Combat, Leaf Blade, and Night Slash.

    Porygon-Z:
    Tri Attack
    Thunderbolt
    Psychic
    Dark Pulse

    He's here to pack a hard hit on any Pokemon.

    Glaceon:
    Ice Beam
    Shadow Ball
    Signal Beam
    ?

    Another strong special attacker. I have absolutely no idea what to do for the last move. I don't want to do Hail, because I don't like damaging weather.

    Flygon ♂ Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Levitate, Item: Dragon Fang / Fire Gem / Electric Gem
    Moves: Earthquake, Dragon Claw, Fire Punch, Thunderpunch

    Unfezant ♂ Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Super Luck, Item: Scope Lens
    Moves: Return, Aerial Ace, Steel Wing, Fly

    Crustle ♂ Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Shell Armor, Item: Wide Lens / Quick Claw
    Moves: X-Scissor, Stone Edge, Earthquake, Strength

    Galvantula ♂ Nature: Modest
    Ability: Compoundeyes, Item: Brightpowder / Metronome
    Moves: Bug Buzz, Thunder, Energy Ball, Thunder Wave

    Ferrothorn ♂ Nature: Brave
    Ability: Iron Barbs, Item: Rocky Helmet / Big Root
    Moves: Power Whip, Gyro Ball, Leech Seed, Ingrain

    Jellicent ♂ Nature: Modest
    Ability: Cursed Body, Item: Quick Claw / Leftovers / Ice Gem
    Moves: Surf, Shadow Ball, Ice Beam, Psychic

    I really couldn't decide on an ability or a moveset for Ambipom if I were to use one, I was thinking of using...

    Ambipom ♂ Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Pick Up, Item: None
    Moves: Return, Acrobatics, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch

    OR

    Ambipom ♂ Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Technician, Item: (No idea)
    Moves: Return, Aerial Ace, Low Sweep, Fake Out

    Should I just stick with Flygon / Unfezant? Would Ambipom be a better match for my team? What's the best way to go with Ambipom in terms of his ability / moveset? Thanks!
    First for Ambipom:
    If you want to go with Adamant use 252attack/252speed
    Technician with Life Orb/Silk Scarf
    -Covet/Double Hit
    -Fake Out
    -Aerial Ace/Thunder Wave
    -U-turn
    A very cruel moveset that lets you get lots of cheap shots from Fake Out and then switch with U-turn.

    Crustle's Strength should probably be replaced with Shell Smash. Also, consider teaching Recover to your Jellicent. If you want more durability, maybe you should give your Flygon a Yache Berry(reduces Icy damage). Other than that, your team is very good

    Crustle normally has Stealth Rock; I'll give Shell Smash a shot though. I've decided to stick with Flygon, thanks for the advice with the Yache Berry, great idea. Teaching Recover to Jellicent is another fantastic idea. Thanks again, mate.

    Beat the E4 this morning with Electric types, and now I'm moving onto Ghost types. All of the choices below are subject to modification, and I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions!

    Golurk
    - Iron Fist
    - Shadow Punch, Earthquake, Ice Punch, ?

    Drifblim
    - Aftermath/Unburden
    - Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt, Acrobatics, ?

    Chandelure
    - Flame Body
    - Shadow Ball, Fire Blast, Psychic, Energy Ball/Will-o-Wisp/Calm Mind

    Jellicent
    - Cursed Body
    - Surf/Scald, Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, Recover/Psychic

    Gengar
    - Levitate
    - Shadow Ball, Focus Blast, Sludge Bomb, Psychic/Dark Pulse

    I can't decide between Cofagrigus, Dusknoir, or Froslass for the final slot...

    You know if you beat the champion with only Gengar you would get both the ghost and poison medals, right?
    And you know that getting medals doesn't rank up your trainer card?

    That aside. It's Evaluation Time!

    This is what I recommend, but with pokemon the possibilities are endless...
    Golurk (Adamant 252attack/252hp) with Iron Fist and the Muscle Band
    -Shadow Punch
    -Earthquake
    -Drain Punch/Hammer Arm(both get an Iron Fist boost)
    -Ice Punch/Fire Punch/Fly(Fly is for Marshall and convenience)

    Drifblim (Impish or Careful with 252hp/126def/126sp.def) with Unburden and the Lum Berry
    -Rest
    -Acrobatics
    -Toxic
    -Protect/Substitute
    Is this too defensive? Maybe for an in-game team it has a little too much strategy.How about a support set?
    Drifblim(Calm or Rash with 252hp/252sp.def) with Aftermath and the Leftovers
    -Baton Pass
    -Substitute
    -Calm Mind
    -Shadow Ball
    You are passing Calm boosts and Substitutes to weaker teammates(like Frosslass if you want it). Maybe next an offensive set?
    Driflbim (Modest with 252hp/252sp.attack) with Aftermath and the Leftovers
    -Shadow Ball
    -Psychic
    -Hidden Power Bug or Fighting
    -Calm Mind
    Shadow Ball>Caitlin and Shauntal. Psychic>Marshall. Hidden Power>Grimsley. Hidden Power will take work to get right, but is worth it.

    Chandelure (Modest with 252sp.attack/100def/100sp.def/56speed) with Flame Body and Leftovers/Sitrus Berry/ DeepSea Tooth
    -Flame Charge
    -Flamethrower/Fire Blast
    -Psychic
    -Shadow Ball
    Okay, a weird EV spread. But it works! Use Flame Charge to boost the Luring Pokemon's Speed and sweep your foe. The HP restoring items are to heal from the damage your fire-type friend took charging its speed and the DeepSea Tooth boosts its massive Sp.Attack(Highest of all non-legendaries, 11th highest with legendaries).

    Jellicent (Calm with 252 Sp.Attack/252 Sp.def) with Cursed Body and the Sitrus Berry
    -Shadow Ball
    -Scald/Ice Beam
    -Psychic
    -Recover

    Gengar (Modest or Timid with 252sp.atk/252speed) with the ______(insert item of your choice. Many items help Gengar)
    Moves Look Great!!

    Froslass has a Shallow moveset and is fragile, so I don't reccommend it. Maybe if you pass it a substitute?
    (Timid or Modest 252sp.attack/252speed) with choice scarf(Maybe)
    -Ice Beam
    -Shadow ball
    -Psychic
    -Signal Beam
    Clear Elite four and Champion advantage, so maybe I was wrong. Froslass can also use Thunderbolt and (bizarrely)Spikes.

    Cofagrigus. A bulky, defensive favorite of mine.
    (Relaxed with 252sp.attack/252defense) with Mummy and Leftovers
    -Shadow Ball
    -Calm Mind/Nasty Plot
    -Hidden Power Bug or Fighting
    -Trick Room
    I like this set and Trick Room can help the other Slow ghosts. You could skip the Chandelure Flame Charges.

    Dusknoir. It's a hard life to be a physical ghost unless you're Golurk. However, the Gripper Pokemon is great at defense.
    (Impish or Rash with 252defense/252sp.def or 252attack/126def/126sp.def)
    -Shadow Sneak
    -Shadow Punch
    -Ice Punch
    -Pain Split
    Most people don't wall the Elite Four and Champion, so this is a modified typical Dusknoir set. If you want to wall them, do ResTalk.

    And that's it. I hope it helps and good luck getting all 250 medals!

    Aha, I'm just doing these challenge medals to pass the time until April, when my friend in Germany contacts me about trading my shiny Haxorus to her and using it as a top prize in a mix tier tournament she's hosting.

    Based on your notes I'll probably skip Froslass and go for the Cofagrigus. I already have one (not the nature you suggested, but I can always breed) and it'll save me the time of asking someone for a Duskull, and then asking someone to help me trade it when it evolves.

    I type... all that... and your response... is so short...
    C'mon, that was so in-depth! I feel so under-appreciated!
    And A Shiny Haxorus is obatainable in-game at the Nature Preserve!

    Which of my Drifblim movesets is best? What about my weird Chandelure advice? Do you want Fly for Golurk? Do you think Jellicent's Ice Beam or Scald is more useful?

    Replaying Pokemon black. Here's my In-Game team. Training for Opelucid Gym. Planning on making some changes to movesets, like Earthquake for Krookodile and Golurk, Ice Beam for Samurott, and Thunder for Galvantula. Maybe Solarbeam for Simisear.

    Samurott-Naive-LV 47-Torrent.
    Slash
    Aerial Ace
    Surf
    Razor Shell

    Galvantula-Lonely-LV 45-Compoundeyes
    Slash
    Electroweb
    Signal Beam
    Charge Beam

    Scrafty-Lax-LV 46-Shed Skin
    Hi Jump Kick
    Crunch
    Facade
    Brick Break

    Krookodile-Mild-LV 45-Intimidate
    Dig
    Bulldoze
    Foul Play
    Crunch

    Golurk-Hasty-LV 45-Iron fist
    Fly
    Mega Punch
    Magnitude
    Shadow Punch

    Simisear-Timid-LV 46-Gluttony
    Crunch
    Acrobatics
    Dig
    Flame Burst
    "Drown in Despair. This is the power of Madara Uchiha! Divine Power!"
    "Love is not necessary. Power is the only TRUE necessity!"
    "Oh, so they stopped the first meteor?...Let's see them stop the second one."

    WHERE'S THE COMPETITIVE TEAM RATING THREAD? I can't find anything other than threads dealing with one person's team. Keasbey and I seem to be the only ones who take in-game teams seriously, getting great natures and EVs.
    But now I'm on topic.

    Okay, you should have no trouble with Drayden.
    DRAYDEN'S TEAM:

    Fraxure Lv.41 with Rivalry
    -Dragon Dance
    -Dragon Rage
    -Assurance
    -Dragon Tail

    Druddigon Lv.41 with Rough Skin
    -Revenge
    -Dragon Tail
    -Night Slash
    -Chip Away

    Haxorus Lv.43 with Mold Breaker
    -Dragon Tail
    -Dragon Dance
    -Assurance
    -Slash

    The levels are a lot lower than yours, and the moves(only Dragon, Dark, Fighting, and Normal) are not diverse. He also will use two hyper potions.

    Now to review your team:

    Samurott
    Good nature for this Gym. You should outrun them and their attacks are all physical. Surf isn't the best for this set, but you probably have it for convenience. If you need more advantage in this Gym(I don't think you will) try an Ice-type move like Ice Beam.When you beat the elite four and N and Ghetsis, I recommend you use thsi set for the subway:
    -Waterfall/Aqua Tail
    -Megahorn
    -Dig
    -Swords Dance

    Galvantula
    Forget Slash and Electroweb. They are weak. Compoundeyes boosts the accuracy of moves, so the move Thunder, the TM you can get at Iccirus City's Pokemart, will have a very good accuracy, which is well worth learning.
    Subway Set:
    -Thunder
    -Signal Beam
    -Energy Ball
    -Sucker Punch/Hidden Power

    Scrafty
    Maybe you should forget Facade, especially since you have Shed Skin. (A 1/3 chance of getting rid of the power boost).
    Subway Set: with Leftovers
    -Drain Punch
    -Bulk Up
    -Crunch
    -Zen Headbutt/Amnesia

    Krookodile
    Forget Bulldoze and Foul Play. Be as diverse as you can.
    My Advice:
    -Earthquake
    -Crunch
    -Outrage
    -Stone Edge

    Golurk
    -Shadow Punch
    -Earthquake
    -Hammer Arm
    -Fly

    Simisear:
    -Sunny Day
    -Fire Blast
    -Solarbeam
    -Focus Blast

    This is just my advice, so if you think of something better, I'd be happy to get some feedback.

    I already replace Electroweb and Slash with Thunder and Sucker Punch for Galvantula, Got Earthquake for Golurk, Gave Simisear Solarbeam instead of Dig (Still looking for Sunny day). And how can I get Samurott Ice Beam without TM?
