    You're still no help. I'm not asking about Breloom or Loudred. Both are the most expendable members of my team. Loudred in particular I plan to shuffle out.

    I'm not asking for an ego boost. I'm asking for advice. I can't use what you're giving me.

    You want advice? For an in-game team?
    Here's some advice: It's called leveling up.

    In the meantime, instead of telling him that he is of no help and putting him down for his compliments (Really?), how about thank him for what he is saying? There's really no "advice" you can give an in-game team, because (As I've said so many times and it still makes me wonder why people want their in-game teams "rated") all you have to do is raise your Pokemon to higher levels than your opponent. You could probably sweep at least half of the E4 with a lvl 90 or higher Treecko.

    Seriously, in the words of the great Jon Stewart, "Be a fucking person".

    You're supposed to post movesets.

    ...and this isn't a thread for "Look at my awesome level 100 team!", either.

    ----

    Honestly, I really disagree with the whole "Oh, just grind goddammit!" idea. Some people don't want to hear shit like that, some people want to keep their team, oh I don't know, actually balanced with the rest of the game and enjoy the game? Sometimes people just want to know if they should swap out ____ Pokemon for ____ Gym Leader. Sometimes people want to know if they should pack ____ move for _____ E4 member. Some people just don't want to grind.

    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).
    Hmmm. A Fire-type... I'd be suggesting Vulpix but that's pretty far off from where you are right now (post 5th badge). Breloom sticks out to me on this team for some reason... I think it might be because outside of Kirlia you're lacking something that hits hard on the special side. Maybe a Ludicolo, or since you already have a Water-type, Cradily?

    The only good Fire-types I can think of in Hoenn though are Camerupt (which has... really blah typing, especially for ingame where Water-types are going to be everywhere) and Ninetales, which you don't get until later in the game. Sorry. ^_^;

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

    Anyway, finished with E4 on Platinum, my team consists of the following


    Adamant

    Strength
    Flame Wheel
    Mach Punch
    Close Combat

    Infernape was my starter, but he's also my weakest link. Pretty weak to ghost too


    Adamant
    Techician

    Bullet Punch
    Pursuit/Night Slash (I think Night Slash is better in-game)
    Swords Dance
    X-Scissor

    Pretty obvious what this guy does. Swept Lucian with this guy alone, after an SD he Bullet Punched all to an early retirement except Bronzong, and that's what X-Scissor is for. Planned to do the same with Cynthia, but her Garchomp fried me... Pretty solid otherwise


    Brave
    Snow Cloak

    Ice Shard
    Earthquake
    Blizzard (soon to be Superpower)
    Strength

    Just to use his attack-power, Strength is there just to do damage. Nearly as good as Scizor in pure power.


    Mild
    Trace

    Psychic
    Thunderbolt
    Calm Mind
    Magical Leaf (still considering E-ball or Focus Blast, shame to waste a E-ball TM though. Didn't need Focus Blast in E4, and easily killed Whischash)

    She (she's female, although Gardevoir can be male) has decent coverage and excellent Sp. Attack, but I'm still thinking about her moveset. And I just love Gardevoir


    Calm

    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Aqua Ring
    Quick Attack

    Though it doesn't have excellent attack, Quick Attack finishes foes better, and can help catching wild pokémon. Pretty obvious what Vaporeon does otherwise.


    Naive

    Thunderbolt
    Light Screen
    Low Kick
    Swift

    He's fast, and has sufficent attacking power. Still considering evolving him though, I'd an like Electivire and I can easily get Electirizers on Diamond. I just need to trade him though. Any help with doing this?

    that looks like a brill team :) i cant believe your infernape is the weak link though :S is it close to learning flare blitz? :)

    night slash is definatly better in game :)

    i think giving gardevoir energy ball would be a good idea :) you can get them easy enough by finding someone on here to trade it for :)

    Thanks, I bred 4 of these on Diamond, I was a bit bored.

    I'll probably switch it out. It was either Calm Mind + Focus Blast/E-ball or just Focus Blast and E-ball. I haven't found the E-ball TM as of yet, but that won't take long.

    My Infernape is my weakest link because I can't find a lot of places to level it up, it's way to frail. I have a Lucky Egg, but that doesn't help him as much as the others when 4 getting boost from Lucky egg and being traded. It's in level 52, and I don't know what level he learns Flare Blitz, but I'll check Bulbapedia later.

    I think I'll erase the EVs (all random of course) and EV-train them. And maybe replace Infernape. I don't like him all that much anyway. I'm thinking fire, but there's not too many fire-types out there. Or maybe I'll just migrate my Dragonite from FireRed when I've beat E4 for the second time.

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

    So I'm really frustrated with the e4, and myself for not planning out what I was going to do with my team... untill now.
    So far, I'm rocking;

    Rhyperior (lv. 51)
    Earthquake
    Rock Slide
    Rock Polish (no idea why he has this..)
    Hammer Arm

    Charizard (lv. 51)
    Fire Spin (again, no idea..)
    Fly
    Flamethrower
    Fire Fang

    Torterra (lv. 50)
    Cut
    Rock Climb
    Earthquake
    Razor Leaf

    Alakazam (lv. 58)
    Shadow Ball
    Shock Wave (might change that out with thunder... but I'm debating)
    Focus Blast
    Psychic

    Gyarados (lv. 48)
    Ice Fang
    Aqua Tail
    Dragon Dance
    Waterfall

    and I'm constantly switching between an Electrivire (all elec. based attacks), Sneasel (Metal Claw, Ice Punch, Slash, Shadow Claw), Rotom (Frost Rotom), Togekiss (Yawn, Fly, Metronome, Dream Eater), and Giratina (Your standard fresh-caught Giratina. :P). (levels 51, 44, 40, 38 and 47 respectively.)

    And I'm getting my face eaten by Cynthia EVERYSINGLETIME! What am I doing wrong? I'm too attached to my Charizard, plus he's pretty high leveled now to use my Houndoom, and I'm slowly but surely leveling up my Gyarados so when he's 50-ish, he'll be able to eat some faces nomnomnom.

    All you readers out there, what do you think?

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

    Here's my Platinum team, and I think I trained them pretty well. Defeating the E4 is not a challenge anymore.

    Salamence Lv90 @ Wide Lens
    Rash
    Fire Fang
    Dragon Rush
    Outrage
    Fly
    My best one. Got Dragon Rush through breeding, Outrage through Move tutor and fire fang through move relearner. It usually takes out Lucians whole team, besides Bronzong.

    Vaporeon Lv93 @ Mystic Water
    Hardy
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Hydro Pump
    Waterfall
    My surfer. But with its great Sp.Atk its surf makes it an awesome water type. If only it wasnt so slow... Waterfall is just there for convenience. I could replace it.... It has a really high level since it deals with both Bertha and Flint.


    Infernape Lv89 @ Black Belt
    Mild
    Flamethrower
    Brick Break
    Blast Burn
    ThunderPunch
    My fire type and fighting type. No normal type can survive when my infernape comes! ThunderPunch is helpful for Water and Flying types.

    Staraptor Lv89 @ Sky Plate
    Docile
    Aerial Ace
    Brave Bird
    Fly
    Giga Impact
    My Flyer. I mostly use it for raw power in-battle though.

    Metagross Lv84 @ Expert Belt
    Lonely
    Zen Headbutt
    Meteor Mash
    Hammer Arm
    Earthquake
    Since I coudnt evolve my Graveler, I decided to put Metagross. It doubles as my Psychic type and my quaker, though quaking is not that useful when it comes to fire types. If I eventually get Golem, then they would probably switch places often. Once again speed is an issue.

    Luxray Lv85 @ Leftovers
    Naive
    Thunderbolt
    Thunder Fang
    Thunder
    Crunch
    My solid electric type. Crunch comes in use when dealing with Psychic types. And no Gyrados can live for more than 5 seconds. If only it was faster.... Luxray is usually replaced with a Pokémon that I need to train or something, as I find not much need for an Electric type.


    So heres my team. Give me some suggestions to make them better, but not full moveset changes. I like their current setting.

    EDIT: As an extra, I'm training my Graveler, until I can get it to evolve.

    Graveler Lv63
    Timid
    Rock Blast
    Earthquake
    ThunderPunch
    Rock Smash
    Now, obviously this one needs some work.
    1) Rock Blast needs to be replaced with either Rock Slide or Stone Edge.
    2) Rock Smash needs to be replaced with some other move that is useful.
    So either I have both Rock Slide and Stone edge or one if them, and some other useful move.

    So people, help me out here.


    Note: Levels are due to change without any notice.

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

    Restarted FireRed because I miss my Mewtwo, and here's my team so far:


    Ivysaur (Starter obviously)
    lv 29
    Nature: Rash
    ~ Razor Leaf
    ~ Secret Power
    ~ Sleep Powder
    ~ Leech Seed


    Gyarados
    lv 30
    Lonely
    Item: BlackGlasses
    ~ Surf
    ~ Secret Power
    ~ Bite
    ~ Dragon Rage


    Clefable
    lv 30
    Jolly
    ~ Mega Punch
    ~ Brick Break
    ~ Water Pulse
    ~ Shock Wave
    (This thing is a beast... if only Mega Kick had Mega Punch's PP)


    Nidoking
    lv 31
    ~ Dig
    ~ Strength
    ~ Rock Tomb
    ~ Brick Break


    Nidoqueen
    lv 30
    Impish
    ~ Dig
    ~ Brick Break
    ~ Attract
    ~ Double Team

    Gahhh... I hate that I don't have better moves... actually Clefable's Atk and SpA are very close so that isn't much of an issue... but seeing as she has the best moveset out of all of them, that just shows my lack of options :/ I'm at Koga right now... all I have left are Nidoqueen and Nidoking (newest additions to the team)... currently Nidoqueen has Attracted and maxed Double Team against Weezing (Koga's final) and now has it down to half health. I'm probably going to switch to Nidoking for the kill since a potion would be devastating to this battle (and would most likely cause my loss).

    This battle with Koga goes down as the longest stall-war I've ever been in, both competitively and in-game.

    After this I'm doing some serious level-grinding.

    EDIT: Koga just used his Hyper Potion on Weezing, putting it back at max health, but now that its entire moveset has been revealed (Tackle/Smokescreen/Toxic/Sludge) and I believe Tackle is out of PP (Yes, Tackle is out of PP. I told you the battle was long), Nidoking shouldn't have any trouble.

    EDIT 2: After Nidoqueen ran out of PP, my Struggle war began. Weezing was still having a horrible time of hitting me between being infatuated and me having 6 Double Teams. Koga used another Hyper Potion on Weezing, and Nidoqueen got Weezing down to half health before being KOd by Weezing's Sludge. Nidoking came out and made the KO.

    Give Infernape Grass Knot to take out pesky water types.

    If you want to trade-trade back your Graveller to evolve it I'll gladly do it. I need to trade-trade back my Duskclops with someone to evolve it too.

    Id rather give it Thunder Punch as I can use that against Flying types too.

    Yeah, I have alot of trade-evos due. Electabuzz, Rhydon, Graveler, the list goes on and on.

    But, lets stop going off-topic now
