    @acefighter
    Your Glalie likes it's ice-attacks. Maybe switching something like Sheer Cold for Crunch, or Shadow Ball?
    Oh and I don't think Umbreon can learn Earthquake, so stick with Moonlight.

    Eevee lvl 25, Modest (Gonna make it a Jolteon when after it learns Bite)
    Dig
    Sand-Attack
    Growl
    Quick Attack

    Nidoqueen lvl 25, Quiet (Spent forever trying to find Nido F)
    Double Kick
    Cut
    Body Slam

    Dig

    I replaced Pikachu with Eevee/Jolteon and Mankey with Growlithe and gonna replace Butterfree with Cubone after I beat Erika, and Pidgeotto with Aerodactyl, Gyarados with Lapras, and NidoQueen with Dratini (Dragonite) when I can get them.
    That's Mama Luigi to YOU, Mario!

    I can beat any thing at least once or twice guaranteed, but after that I cannever win. I'm thinking of switching out a pokemon, but I have to make sure that it won't affect my "triangle" too much. any suggestions of a good pokemon?
    Thanks for reply!! Your team sounds awesome, especially electrode. Though for Glalie Id suggest swapping blizzard for maybe earthquake? Glalie is weak to fire, rock and steel so a ground move could be helpful if you cant switch for Hariyama.

    Hariyama seems quite good too, though I had one before that knew ice punch and that worked quite well.

    i would ditch double team for Energy ball. double team almost never helps anyone except the AI. Energy ball Power:80 will help even out your team

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

    Okay, after restarting FireRed, my team looks like this. I'm about to fight Koga.

    Venusaur, level 38
    Lax
    Tackle
    Sleep Powder
    Poisonpowder
    Razor Leaf

    Does need replacement for tackle though

    Muk, level 39
    Stench, Impish
    Sludge
    Minimize
    Screech
    Acid Armor

    Needs some better moves. Like Fire Blast or something

    Nidoking, level 45
    Careful
    Megahorn
    Rock Slide
    Strength
    Brick Break

    Strength for moving misc. rocks. Plus it beats Horn Attack. Tutored Rock Slide onto him

    Clefable, leve 46
    Quirky
    Pound (thinking Return here)
    Brick Break
    Moonlight (thinking Softboiled)
    Meteor Mash

    After grinding my Clefairy to lv. 45, I finally got Meteor Mash, and I'm definately keeping that. I'm thinking Boltbeam plus Meteor Mash and Return, though this leaves me with problems against Magneton

    Flareon, level 42
    Hasty
    Fire Spin (soon Flamethrower)
    Shadow Ball
    Quick Attack
    Bite

    I'm thinking of replacing Bite with something...

    And the last slot is occupied by Ch'Ding, my HM-slave, but I'll replace it with Dewgong when I'm able.

    Can someone help me with my Blissey? I'm trying to train her and I need all the help I can get.

    Name: Lolly
    Level: 23
    Nature: Naive
    Personality: Highly curious
    Ability: Natural Cure
    HP: 151
    Attack: 20
    Defense 20
    Special Attack: 46
    Special Defense: 60
    Speed: 37

    Moveset:

    Present
    Metronome
    Softboiled
    Sing

    I'm a little unsure about her moveset. I don't want to get rid of Present or Metronome since I had to do a lot of chain breeding for her to know them. I'm a bit hesitant to give her a Lucky Egg in case she uses Fling. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    If you don't want to get rid of these moves, this Blissey is basically a novelty Blissey. Fun to have, but effectively useless. Present is kind of a worthless move, and metronome is a pain in the ass with reliability. Softboiled is necessary on any Blissey, and although Sing can help you catch things, it isn't really that worth it because of accuracy.

    Honestly though, if you want to use a Blissey and you don't want to get rid of those moves, get another one. Keep Softboiled, maybe breed on Heal Bell/Aromatherapy. Then if you want, a status move like Sing or Thunder Wave. The remaining slot(s) should all go to special moves, like Ice Beam, Charge Beam (if you have serene grace as an ability), Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, etc. Blissy should never use physical moves, not even in-game, and sadly, that's all it learns by level up.

    There are specific competitive sets for Blissey that you could go for, but since this is in the in-game section, I won't bother with that.
    If 50 Cent had been STAB'd instead of shot, he would be 75 Cent.

    Thanks for the help. Is it alright if I keep Metronome? I don't want to get another Blissey since I had to do a lot of breeding to get her. (Plus my PC boxes are nearly filled up and I found out Platnium doesn't work with Pokemon Ranch.) I'm going to use TMs to replace Present and maybe Sing. I do a lot of battling to train my pokemon so money won't be an issue.

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

    Well, my team is still a work in progress, but why not?

    ------


    Eve / Espeon

    Level 100
    Quiet Nature
    Synchronize

    Psychic
    Signal Beam
    Calm Mind
    Morning Sun

    I believe the term for this type of Pokemon is a 'sweeper'? I dunno. Most of my team falls under this category though.
    No matter what changes I make, this Pokemon will always be in my team. It was a pain SRing for a female Eevee, and I just happened to get one with a Special Attack nature. I think it has magnificent IV's in this stat as well, because out of a max of 394 (according to the wiki) it has 378.




    Maeda / Absol

    Level 63
    Adamant Nature
    Super Luck

    Night Slash
    Shadow Claw
    Psycho Cut
    Swords Dance

    I'm really happy with my Absol as well. It was initially just an experiment on the high-crit build a friend and I worked out, and it works even better than expected. The abilities, combined with the moveset and a scope lens/ razor claw give it a 50% crit rate. Or something.
    If anything I'm considering swapping out Shadow Claw for Slash, just so it will be able to put some hurt on dark types as well. Right now it can't do much to them.




    Raioh / Arcanine

    Level 55
    Hardy Nature
    Flash Fire

    Flamethrower
    Extreme Speed
    Bite
    Thunder Fang

    Yes, it has bite still. Be quiet, I'm trying to get a Dig TM.
    Then I'm considering swapping out Flamethrower for Fire Fang, because it's EV trained in Attack and Speed, and Flamethrower is a Special move. I like how Fire Fang can flinch, but I don't know if his high Attack will make up for Fire Fang having a lower base power than Flamethrower.




    Morgan / Mismagius

    Level 51
    Quiet Nature

    Shadow Ball
    Psybeam
    Thunderbolt
    Confuse Ray

    I wanted a nature that raises Special Attack and lowers Attack, but it took hours and the best I could get was a Quiet Misdreavus so I just went with that.
    I plan on replacing Psybeam with Psychic, but I don't know what to put in place of Confuse Ray since Mismagius has a...disappointing selection of moves. I'm thinking Energy Ball, because I lack a grass type.




    Laine / Vaporeon

    Level 57
    Rash Nature

    Surf
    Aurora Beam
    Aqua Ring
    ...Tackle.

    Obviously Aurora Beam will be replaced with Ice Beam.
    Tackle is going to become either Acid Armor or Rain Dance.
    I'm not sure if I'm going to keep Aqua Ring. If not, it'll become whichever of the above choices I didn't pick to replace Tackle.



    Cosmo / Flaafy

    Level...21
    Rash Nature

    ...Tackle Again...
    ...Gr...Growl....
    Thunderwave
    Thundershock...

    Shut up. V.v; I haven't finished EV training everyone else so not much work has been done on him yet.
    But I think this may end up being the first Ampharos in the history of everness to not have Thunderpunch. I've always seen that as it's signature move, but it's going to have higher Special Attack than Attack. By a lot. So Thunderbolt it is. (I don't like Thunder.)
    No idea what I'm going to teach him, really, but I need an electric type for balance.

    -------

    So, there we go.
    I used to have a Ninetails in my party but I replaced it with Arcanine because I like it's base stats and move selection better.

    I planned on using a Blissey for a while, but no, not for what you think.
    Instead of being a PP absorbing wall, I had planned to teach it Calm Mind, Softboiled, Thunder Wave and Baton Pass. After paralyzing the enemy, I'd use Calm Mind to max out Special Attack and Baton Pass to Espeon, who would then have OVER 9000! I mean, um, 700 ish.

    In the end I just taught Calm Mind to Espeon, though, because it sounds really annoying, even to me. Of course, maybe that's because my original idea was to include Minimize and Defense Curl spamming for a completely invincible Espeon buff.... <.<;
    Did I mention I really love my Espeon?

    Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

    Oh, and I think it's kinda cute how everyone here calls them "HM Slaves".
    My friend Seth does that. He's so tiny and adorable. o.0;
    I always call them HM...umm...well it's almost spelled like whale.
