    Emerald:
    50 Swampert (Earthquake, Muddy Water, Surf, Strength)
    50 Glalie (Ice Beam, Crunch, Hail, Headbutt)
    50 Dusclops (Shadow Punch, Psychic, Toxic, Calm Mind)
    50 Salamance (Dragon Claw, Fly, Focus Energy, Flamethrower)
    50 Camerupt (Earthquake, Eruption, Rock Slide, Sunny Day)
    50 Manectric (Thunder, Thunderbolt, Flash, Thunder Wave)

    So anyway, what do you think? I think some of the attacks need replacing (Salamance's Focus Energy for instance) But interested to know what you think

    I was thinking maybe Espeon. But I'm not sure. Anyone have any other ideas?

    But what kind of role do you want the last Pokemon to fulfill? I'm at a loss to give you any suggestions if I have no idea what you want.

    Moveset-Flamethrower, Eruption, Shadow Claw, With Flamethrower and Eruption, you don't need this. Try maybe Thunderpunch?

    Lvl.58 Ampharos
    Ability-Static
    Item-None ATM
    Nature-Jolly
    Moveset-Signal Beam, Discharge, Thunder, Focus Blast
    This looks good. I'm wondering if you might want Power Gem, it's a nice move. You can try it over Discharge and change Thunder to Thunderbolt.

    Lvl.57 Lapras
    Ability-Water Absorb
    Item-Sea Incense
    Nature-Rash
    Moveset-Ice Beam, Sheer Cold, Surf, Hydro Pump
    Nice, you're using Lapras.
    First up, in-game you don't really want Sheer Cold. I'm assuming you haven't beaten Red yet, and his pokes are such high levels it's not worth it.
    Try Confuse Ray
    Ice Beam
    Hydro Pump/Surf
    Filler Move, probably an electric move like T-Bolt.

    Lvl.55 Tyranitar
    Ability-Sand Stream
    Item-None ATM
    Nature-Timid
    Moveset-Earthquake, Crush, Dark Pulse, Stone Edge

    Oh joy, I love this guy! Don't do Crunch and Dark Pulse though. I'm assuming attack is higher. You can switch Dark Pulse to Fire Punch.


    Lvl.55 Dragonite
    Ability-Inner Focus
    Item-Dragon Fang
    Nature-Relaxed
    Moveset-Dragon Dance, Dragon Claw, Earthquake, Roost
    Looks good.

    My 6th spot is open

    Anyone with suggestions on my 6th pokemon and/or moves please comment!!!! Thanks!
    Hmm...seems like you could use a good defender. I'd try Snorlax. I use him and his mammoth HP to simply heal off my other pokes, and he can inflict massive damage as well. He sounds like he'd work for you.

    Why has she not evolved yet? Anyway This guy would be best to sit the battles out and only come in to kill the gastly your rival has. Don't use her.

    Zubat: Lv. 18, Male, Timid Nature
    -Bite
    -Wing Attack
    -Leech Life
    -Astonish

    Either go full out offensive with this guy or die hard.
    Wing attack will be good for Bugsy and Bayleef but you should grind him some more.


    Sandshrew: Lv. 18, Female, Lonely
    -Poison Sting
    -Cut
    -Rock Smash
    -Rapid Spin

    HM whore I guess? If she is don't grind her. Put something over it.

    Mareep: Lv. 18, Female, Calm
    -Thundershock
    -Tackle
    -Growl
    -Thunder Wave

    Thundershock is good for scyther and zubat. Grinding is essential.


    As for the other two try a Onix and Gastly. The evolutions will help greatly in the future :)

    HMM... K, Hm Slave don't need training.
    I disagree with SHellShock here, you don't need to grind really. All you have to do is think type advantage wise.
    Consider Toxic and Confuse Ray on Zubat, as a Crobat it works very well. Then you can throw n Air Slash and Heat Wave.
    Ampharos is good, I think you can maybe give it a Life Orb?
    Last two pokemon, let's see.
    You have
    Water
    Electric
    Poison/Flying
    You're actually pretty balanced. So then we see that you have a Physical attacker, a special attacker, and something that functions well a special attacker/annoyer. You could probably use another physical attacker. COuld you try Tyranitar or Heracross? Those work very well in-game.
    After that, you can probably throw in a Gengar like ShellShock mentioned, or maybe try for Arcanine.
    Hope this helped!

    This double post is legal as I'm bringing new info...
    So, my heartgold team. I'm finally playing, and I have several candidates for a team spot. Right now, I have
    Feraligatr
    Growlithe
    Jolteon
    Heracross
    Togekiss

    They all serve their roles. Heracross is a physical attacker with Rest+Sleep Talk to abuse Guts, Togekiss is a dual screener+Special attacker (I got hustle, and this pretty much negates it, since Aura SPhere can't miss. The only one that's a problem is Air SLash). Feraligatr sets up Agility then sweeps. Jolteon uses Charge Beam to function as a special attacker. Growlithe is mixed, with Fire Blast (to be overheat) and other physical moves.

    I'm wondering what I should use for the last. I'm going to rng whatever I do to be shiny with a good nature, then EV and level it up in-game. I'm thinking of Donphan or Tyranitar, but if anyone has a good suggestion please let me know!
    EDIT: I've also considered Froslass, I'm open to pretty much anything.

    You don't need to Fully grind them to take the elite 4 on. You can stop at 60 for most of them. Oh and Lopunny's nature?
