    Some easy changes to ur teams would be
    -replacing feraligatr with kingdra,
    -replacing rapidash with arcanine,
    -replacing typhlosion with arcanine,
    -replacing gyarados with kingdra,
    -not using Noctowl at all,
    -not using Tyranitar (sandstorm messes up all of your own pokemon),
    -and not using Houndoom (he just has crappy stats and their are better fire pokemon and dark pokemon out there such as Umbreon and Arcanine)

    Lol, I don't know what post you are responding because to your response is almost totally unrelated to my original post.

    All I am saying is this: If you are going to pick a fire pokemon, why pick an average fire pokemon like Typhlosion? You would be better off picking a much better fire pokemon like Arcanine.

    I just don't know why you would use a pokemon from the starters you get at the beginning of the game in your final team seeing as how every single starter has a pokemon that is superior to it and of the same primary type.
    ex.
    Blastoise, Feraligatr, and Empleon are all inferior to Kingdra.
    Typhlosion, Infernape, and Charizard are all inferior to Arcanine
    etc.

    (PS. I never said anything about not using certain pokemon because of their type I just said that you should use the BEST pokemon for each type you want present on your team.)

    This would be my first serious team build/EV training set, for Heart Gold's Battle Tower (and maybe Pearl's as well). My goal in Battle Tower is to earn enough BPs for the move tutors and various items; getting the star would be a bonus but not the most necessary. I'd like to get some feedback on it before I work on the breeding and whatnot. Since it's for Battle Tower and not serious competitive play, there's only three of them, and I'm probably not going to check IVs. Since I haven't actually started yet, I'm willing to switch just about everything around!

    Were you talking about me, dementia, or both? It's hard enough for me to trade a Pokemon with my Diamond to evolve it and send it back since I only have 1 DS. Instead of replacing all of them, why not just train them more. If you train a Pokemon right, it can get better by a lot. So I really don't want to change my Pokemon.

    Posted this on a different thread, but:

    Thinking of doing an all Togekiss party, would look like this:

    2 with:
    Nasty Plot
    Baton Pass
    Substitute
    Wish (GIVE ME OPINIONS ON SWITCHING TO AGILITY)
    Sp. Def/Def 254

    Walls.

    and the rest:

    Aura Sphere
    Hidden Power (of varying types, including Ice and Ground)
    Shadow Ball or Ominous Wind (need an opinion)
    Air Slash? Might need a better suggestion to get more Super Effectives in.
    Sp Atk/Speed 254

    Offensive freaks.

    Who doesn't love Togekiss? Get a good nature, decent Sp. Atk IV's, and some serious EV training and you can almost top 400!!

    Fudgenuggets: Yeah I understand if its a pain to get certain pokemon but if you can somehow get it done I highly recommend it. My suggestions were assuming that you could look at the entire pokedex and just pick and choose any pokemon you want. Of course I understand if you have limited options.

    (PS. I never said anything about not using certain pokemon because of their type I just said that you should use the BEST pokemon for each type you want present on your team.)
    Infernape is better than Arcanine in most cases in OU metagame.
    Infernape is one of the most used leads in OU.
    Kingdra is not always better than Empoleon because they are used for different things. In March 2010 Shoddy ladder, Empoleon was used more than Kingdra (6.29% vs 6.26%)
    Swampert is one of the most used leads in OU.

    Also, you can't look at it from a perspective of "this pokemon of type x is better than this other pokemon of type x in all cases". Various pokemon fit into different circumstances. Suicune and Vaporeon are very similar as in they're bulky water types, but one does not completely wipe out the other from the game.

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

    So I'm at 7 badges in Heart Gold, and here, to the best of my memory, is my team:

    Lv. 34 Ampharos (Magnet)
    Thunder Wave
    Strength
    Thunderpunch
    Discharge

    My Amphy's strong with Special Attack, so I need to replace Thunderpunch with something else. What could I possibly put there there? Remember, I haven't beaten the Elite Four or Clair yet.

    Lv. 34 Slowpoke (Mystic Water)
    Zen Headbutt
    Headbutt
    Yawn
    Surf

    Lv. 34 Heracross (Shell Bell)
    Endure
    Horn Attack
    Fury Attack
    Brick Break

    Lv. 34 Quilava (Charcoal)
    Smokescreen
    Swift
    Flame Wheel
    Quick Attack

    Lv. 34 Fearow (Sharp Beak)
    Aerial Ace
    Fly
    Fury Attack
    Pursuit

    and then I'm training...
    Lv. 26 Swinub (Exp. Share)
    Icy Wind
    Mud Bomb
    Mud Slap
    Endure

    You'll notice I haven't used TMs much. This is because they're mostly one-time use, and I'm scared of wasting them.
    Now, I'm not into EV training, because it takes way more work than I have the time for (being a part time student, part time hotel employee). So, any suggestions? I have a Graveler and Weepinbell in reserve, as well.

    to Eternalx:



    Well, I dont know anything about strategy and tactics ^^ I usually simply put pokemon I like, that dont accumulate too many similar weaknesses and that can work out well together, then I tailor the move set in order for them to defeat those types against which they are weak, and sometimes benefit from STAB. Personally I like your team, but I'd choose Togekiss over Magnezone ^^ but thats just cause I find togekiss awesome :)

    to The Dude (feels kinda cool to say that): Here all I can say is that aside from fearow (who I just dont like) I dont see any problem ^^ perhaps a wooper (quagsire) instead of slowpoke, but that'd be it. If I remember well I did the whole of crystal with just meganium, quagsire and noctowl (then dragonite), but thats no way to follow, just wanted to go fast. also shows that the three of them are enough to beat every single trainer in the game..as bad as that sounds :/

    It IS awesome, but get rid of Roost. It's a waste of a move slot for a pokémon like Togekiss.

    Actually, roost is a perfect move for a pokemon like Togekiss. Because of its bulk, restoring 50% health and temporarily removing its ice/electric/rock weakness is very powerful. I would replace Fly with Air Slash because Togekiss is Special-Attack heavy, and Fly is physical with low damage and is very easy to set up on.

    Air Slash 30% flinch rate is also doubled by Serene Grace to 60% flinch.

    Well, I would use Quagsire, but I just didn't feel like it. Besides, got myself a Slowking now. Definitely intending on using my dear friend Quaggy when I get Soul Silver. And I'll take your advice and use Meganium, not Feraligatr then, too.
