    if your using that team for the ipgl then it's most probably ev'd with the right natures with strategic sets, so that can just go in it's own thread in the normal forum :)

    wow...this threads pretty popular :)

    Figured I'd post my crew. Note, this will eventually be a competitive team, eventually (once I get to EV training and fixing some movesets)

    Infernape (Inferno) holding Expert Belt: Level 88

    Flare Blitz
    Flamethrower
    Close Combat
    Earthquake

    Pretty standard Infernape... Not much to say.


    Scizor (Ryu) holding leftovers: Level 85
    Swords Dance
    Bullet Punch
    Substitute
    X-Scissor

    Again, pretty standard. gets a sub up, then SD, then bullet punch spam


    Staraptor (Mukuhawk) holding Shell Bell: Level 81
    Fly
    Brave Bird
    Close Combat
    Return

    Return with STAB on a Poke with massive attack = death to everything that doesn't resist.



    Garchomp (Landshark) holding Life Orb: Level 82
    Swords Dance
    Dragon Claw
    Earthquake
    Fire Fang

    again, pretty standard SD chomp. not much to say


    Dragonite (Dragon!) holding Life Orb (damn straight I have two of them): Level 85
    Dragon Dance
    Outrage
    Aqua Tail
    Wing Attack

    DD + Stab Outrage = Death to all that come across my buddy here.

    Heatran (Flame) holding Charcoal: Level 91
    Heat Wave
    Earth Power
    Magma Storm
    Iron Head

    massive Sp. Attack + High Powered STAB = death to anything that doesn't resist fire and ground.

    Flaming Monkey, why not try putting Dragon Pulse on your Heatran over Iron Head? Dragon+Fire+Ground=coverage on everything. You've already got that type setup on your Garchomp.

    you know, that's actually a great idea. I've been saving all my TM's so I still have that one. Thanks for the tip.

    No worries.

    WOO! Just beat the Elite Four! ^_^ And the only changes I made are teaching my Empoleon Hydro Pump over Aqua Jet and Blizzard over Bubblebeam, and teaching Ice Beam to my Gastrodon over Water Pulse. Oh, and I messed up before...I had taught Waterfall to her over Hidden Power, not Water Pulse. I had some problems with Flint, but otherwise, it was fairly smooth sailing.

    I also made a couple fairly useful discoveries. Don't know how useful they'll be to other people, but in case they're looking...
    1. Your Rival's Snorlax has Immunity, not Thick Fat
    2. Flint's Infernape has Earthquake
    3. Flint's Rapidash and Magmortar have Solar Beam
    4. Cynthia's Spiritomb has Psychic (learned that the hard way when I started off with Rorschach...)
    5. I had thought Cynthia's Milotic only had Surf and Ice Beam for moves, but it also has Dragon Pulse
    6. Ozymandias' Charge was a godsend

    thanks, you're right Electivire's attack is only just behind his special attack :). cheers
    Edit: just wanted to say that I was considering taking out Giratina for Gengar just for the E4, would that be a good move?

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

    based purely on type- moveset etc not determined yet, as I haven't got round to even beginning the team, not owning an english 4th gen game-

    -Steelix
    -Infernape or Blaziken
    -Ludicolo
    -Rotom (levitate)
    -Kingdra
    -Skarmory

    by my calculation, they have overall at least +1 resistance to every type,
    providing immunities are given as -3, double resistances +2, resistances +1, weaknesses -1, double weaknesses -2, and abilies giving immunity +2 (to account for things like gastro acid etc, also, levitate is paticularly easy to negate).
    I only have the stated +1 against fire, flying, psycic, dragon, and ice, as the rest are +2 or more resistance


    (note-I have excluded legendaries or any pokemon with double weaknesses, reguardless of their strength (having to do that to the magneton family made me shed a tear), as the former I consider cheating, (and cannot be obtained at level 1, and trained up properly) and the latter being not worth the risk (as I based my team on defensive typing, not good offensive moves, which can be given to most decent pokemon)

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

    So I recently picked up my Emerald version again, and started from scratch. My current team is as follows:

    Marshtomp, 27. Most dangerous member of my team. Going to be my Surfer.

    Kirlia, 26. Every team in every game that I play always has a psychic type in it.

    Hariyama, 26. My physical bruiser. Currently my Rock Smasher, but I plan to delete it. Future Strength user.

    Loudred, 21. Filler. Considered being my Strength user before his stats went out of balance.

    Breloom, 24. Not sure what I want to do with this. Less useful than I imagined.

    Skarmory, 18. Recently caught. I like what I see. Future Flier, and my physical damage absorber. Defense stat makes other Pokes green with envy.

    I am currently meandering around before the Team Magma mess on the mountain, before Flannery's gym. I don't do HM slaves because they're far too often wasted space, and I'd like to fill that space with something useful. I do not have access to a method of trading, so I cannot obtain the trade evos. What is the effectiveness of this party to level through the game? Is it possible for me to add a Fire-type? If so, which one? What changes can I make to this team? (Note: Kirlia and Marshtomp I will not change, and I want to keep Skarmory if at all possible).

    nice team so far..and you should use breloom as a sporer with mach punch :) loudred could be really good :) it has great stats, and so does skarmory :)

    well rounded team :)

    haha i mean
    if your unsure about how to use breloom, give him spore and mach punch, and sub a focus punch, great combo :)

    and that you should use loudred as a sort of bulky attacker, and skarmory as a wall. :)
