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

    Using some previously garnered advice, this is my current team:

    Pignite Level 31

    Heat Crash
    Flame Charge (soon to be replaced)
    Arm Thrust
    Rollout

    Herdier Level 30

    Return
    Work Up
    Crunch
    Dig

    Darumaka Lvl 30

    Fire Punch
    Thrash
    Headbutt
    Work Up

    Yamask Level 27 (EXP Share)

    Ominous Wind
    Hex
    Will'o'wisp
    Haze

    Now, though, i'm not sure what to add. I'm considering maybe a water type? Virizion would also work sicne it would balance my water and ground weakness... welcome any advice for what Pokémon to add!

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

    Heres a basic team I have on my game. I am in desperate need of advise.


    Flameheart
    Level 76,236 ATK, 131 DEF, 185 SPATK, 116 SPDEF, 143 SPD, 269 HP
    Attacks:

    My fully-evolved starter Pokemon which I use as a Sweeper. As you can see, its use of Blunt attacks as well as its high attack makes it so it generally just tries to OHKO its foes.




    Zekrom
    Level 56,180 ATK, 167 DEF, 148 SPATK, 120 SPDEF, 116 SPD, 189 HP
    Attacks:

    I... dont really know what Im trying to accomplish with this Pokemon. It's Fusion Bolt is really effective against water Pokemon, which Flameheart is deathly weak too. I also keep it handy when I want to cut down small trees- which I find are a lot more uncommon then in past generations.


    Tropius
    Level 49,87 ATK, 97 DEF, 80 SPATK, 99 SPDEF, 60 SPD
    Attacks:

    Another Pokemon I use mainly to fix Flameheart's Water-weakness. This one proves it can destroy Water-type Pokemon of pretty much every level. Its effectiveness against Pokemon 28 Levels above it is note-worthy.


    Cocamola
    Level 12,23 ATK, 29 DEF, 17 SPATK, 16 SPDEF, 23 SPD
    Attacks:

    A HM Slave used solely for a aquatic transportation. I'm not sure if I should level it up or not. Other then that, their isn't a substantial amount of things to say about this Pokemon...



    Psygold
    Level 57,101 ATK, 99 DEF, 102 SPATK, 110 SPDEF, 111 SPD, 171 HP
    Attacks:

    A good sweeper against weaker teams, and it is also useful for catching wild Pokemon. Other then that, I only have it because I like Golducks.


    BRONZONG
    Level 42,84 ATK, 115 DEF, 72 SPATK, 128 SPDEF, 41 SPD, 118 HP
    Attacks:

    My attempt at some sort of Wall. Bassically, I EV trained, raising its Defense, its Special Defense, and its HP. Then I added moves like "Safeguard" and "Protect", just in case.


    I know Im a suckish strategist, but the NPC's have such bad AI and Pokemon that their is really no need to become a veteran strategist offline.

    Virizion does seem like a good idea, but if you want an early-game Pokemon, Sewaddle might help here, it gets 2 dependable STAB Moves in Bug Bite and Razor Leaf, very early and it's final evolution, Leavanny boasts a 103 Attack and 92 Speed stat, it might be helpful against Caitlin and other users of Water/Psychic types. A powerful and bulky Special Attacker like Reuniclus might help in the long run, as well. Also, if this isn't a competitive team, you may want to get rid of Haze for moves that offer more coverage, since NPCs rarely stat boost.

    Haze is merely filler until I get some decent TMs or Yamask gets some decent moves. Hmm...Sewaddle might be worth looking at...do you know if it works well?

    From the top:

    1.) I suggest replacing Strength with Hammer Arm as it has a 150 base power with STAB.
    2.) I suggest getting rid of Cut and replacing it with Wild Charge for a good STAB move. Alternatively, Stone Edge or Rock Slide could be used to cover the ice weakness.
    3.) Give it Energy Ball to replace Flash
    4.) Um, replace Pound with Return?
    5.) Unable to comment.
    6.) Replacing Flash Cannon with Toxic would probably make it a better wall.

    Get a Heart Scale and teach Samurott Megahorn, it hits hard. Then, replace Brick Break with Revenge.

    Typhlosion (Flare)
    Lv. 91
    Earthquake
    Eruption
    Brick Break
    Double Edge

    Typhlosion isn't the greatest Physical attacker, but EQ and Double-Edge are powerful enough to make it usable. Brick Break, on the other hand, isn't. So replace that with either Focus Blast (for power) or SolarBeam (for coverage).

    Meganium (Grace)
    Lv. 89
    Toxic
    Earthquake
    Body Slam
    Razor Leaf

    Razor Leaf? That's the best you can do? Why not Petal Dance, or Giga Drain, or SolarBeam? Oh, and Return is stronger if Mega's at full happiness, so use that instead of Body Slam.

    Empoleon (Tacky)
    Lv. 100
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Brick Break
    Earthquake

    Flash Cannon is strong enough to be a secondary STAB move, so use it over Brick Break.

    Staraptor (Focus)
    Lv. 93
    Fly
    Brave Bird
    Close Combat
    Secret Power

    You already have Brave Bird, so ditch Fly for Return or Take Down. U-Turn can be used if the bird's in trouble.

    Victini
    Lv. 63
    Thunder
    Flame Charge
    Zen Headbutt
    Brick Break

    I would go for a Special-based set. For that, use a Heart Scale to re-teach it Searing Shot. The, use a TM on it for Psychic, Thunderbolt over Thunder, and either Shadow Ball or Energy Ball. If you're going for Power, then keep Thunder and teach it Fire Blast/Overheat, SolarBeam, and Focus Blast.
    I notice that a lot of your 'Mons have Brick Break. DO you have a problem with Dark-Types or something?

    Thanks for the help. The overuse of Brick Break is mostly because I've been getting lots of Dark-types in my battles.

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

    I'm usually one to say "Good trainers don't use legendaries," but I'm sort of a hypocrite, because I use Victini.

    Victini - Lv83 - Gentle Nature - Victory Star
    -Fire Blast (8 PP)
    -Flare Blitz (15 PP)
    -Hyper Beam (5 PP)
    -Psychic (10 PP)

    Cinccino - ♂ Lv82 - Serious Nature - Technician
    -Thunder (10 PP)
    -Sing (15 PP)
    -Tail Slap (16 PP)
    -Hyper Beam (5 PP)

    Sigilyph - Lv87 - Bashful Nature - Magic Gaurd
    -Sky Attack (8 PP)
    -Psychic (10 PP)
    -Ice Beam (10 PP)
    -Fly (15 PP)

    Serperior - ♂ Lv82 - Lax Nature - Overgrow
    -Frenzy Plant (5 PP)
    -SolarBeam (10 PP)
    -Aerial Ace (20 PP)
    -Energy Ball (10 PP)

    Zoroark - ♂ Lv87 - Lax Nature - Illusion
    -Giga Impact (5 PP)
    -Night Daze (10 PP)
    -Shadow Ball (15 PP)
    -Hyper Beam (5 PP)

    Eeks (Rotom) - Lv81 - Gentle Nature - Levitate
    -Discharge (15 PP)
    -Thunder (12 PP)
    -Thunderbolt (15 PP)
    -Shadow Ball (15 PP) - Also move for when it switches formes

    Victini - Lv83 - Gentle Nature - Victory Star
    -Fire Blast (8 PP)
    -Flare Blitz (15 PP)
    -Hyper Beam (5 PP)
    -Psychic (10 PP)

    Two Fire-Type moves on a single PKMN? Take out Flare Blitz & Hyper Beam, and replace it with Thunder{bolt} & Shadow/Energy Ball or SolarBeam.

    Cinccino - ♂ Lv82 - Serious Nature - Technician
    -Thunder (10 PP)
    -Sing (15 PP)
    -Tail Slap (16 PP)
    -Hyper Beam (5 PP)

    You've got Tail Slap already, so replace Thunder & Hyper Beam with Bullet Seed and Rock Blast. I guess Sing can stay.

    Sigilyph - Lv87 - Bashful Nature - Magic Gaurd
    -Sky Attack (8 PP)
    -Psychic (10 PP)
    -Ice Beam (10 PP)
    -Fly (15 PP)

    Sky Attack is powerful, but it takes two turns to use, and on top of that, Sigilyph's Attackk isn't all that high. Instead, replace it with Air Slash. Same deal with Fly, but with Energy/Shadow Ball or Charge Beam. Also, it may be a bad idea to have two Psychic-Types on your team. Just sayin'.

    Serperior - ♂ Lv82 - Lax Nature - Overgrow
    -Frenzy Plant (5 PP)
    -SolarBeam (10 PP)
    -Aerial Ace (20 PP)
    -Energy Ball (10 PP)

    In this case, I would ditch all of those Grass-Type moves and replace them with Leaf Blade. Then put Dragon Tail amd Swords Dance there to boost his Attack.

    Zoroark - ♂ Lv87 - Lax Nature - Illusion
    -Giga Impact (5 PP)
    -Night Daze (10 PP)
    -Shadow Ball (15 PP)
    -Hyper Beam (5 PP)

    It looks pretty good. All I would suggest is replacing Giga Impact with Flamethrower.

    Eeks (Rotom) - Lv81 - Gentle Nature - Levitate
    -Discharge (15 PP)
    -Thunder (12 PP)
    -Thunderbolt (15 PP)
    -Shadow Ball (15 PP) - Also move for when it switches formes

    Ahuh. Thunderbolt is stringer than Discharge and more accurate than Thunder, so remove thise two. In their place, use Hex and Will-o-Wisp. I think Uproar would be OK for the filler-move-that-gets-replaced-whenever-Rotom-ghanges-forms slot.
    You wanted a comment, right? They're in bold.

    So, I'm getting ready to take on the E4 for the second time in Black and I want to level up my team a bit more before doing so. I'll post what it looks like so far. :]


    Serperior (Female) lv. 69 (yes, my starter is female rather than the more common male)
    - Giga Drain
    - Leaf Blade
    - Leaf Storm
    - Cut


    Zebstrika (Female) lv. 69
    - Spark
    - Flame Charge
    - Wild Charge
    - Thrash


    Meinshao (Female) lv. 68
    - Drain Punch
    - Hi Jump Kick
    - U-Turn
    - Bounce


    Reshiram lv. 69
    - Fusion Flare
    - Extrasensory
    - Strength
    - Dragon Pulse


    Krookodile (Male) lv. 68
    - Bulldoze

    - Crunch
    - Outrage


    Swanna (Male) lv. 68
    - Water Pulse
    - Surf
    - Fly
    - Brave Bird

    I haven't decided on held items yet. By the way, my Swanna's nature turned it into a fast, heavy hitter. I'm lovin it. ^^
