In Celadon City in FireRed, and I just got a good Eevee and Growlithe.
Eevee lvl 25, Modest (Gonna make it a Jolteon when after it learns Bite)
Nidoqueen lvl 25, Quiet (Spent forever trying to find Nido F)
Pidgeotto Lvl 24, Hardy
Gyarados Lvl 25, Serious
Secret Power (Hey, its better than Tackle..)
Growlithe Lvl 20, Lonely
Butterfree Lvl 25, Jolly
Sleep Powder (Compound Eyes raises accuracy, making this hit 90% of the time, at least whenever I use it)
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!
Yeah, I scare Boos. What you gonna do 'bout it?
Hariyama seems quite good too, though I had one before that knew ice punch and that worked quite well.
Meant to say thunderpunch, not ice....
At Elite four in Platinum, been leveling up but still underlevled,
Aquatus (Prinplup)Lv.61 (Serious)

I'm not sure if this is the place to post, but yeah... any better options for my friend's Gardevoir? Don't know about its EV/IV though.
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
Okay, after restarting FireRed, my team looks like this. I'm about to fight Koga.
Venusaur, level 38
Does need replacement for tackle though
Muk, level 39
Needs some better moves. Like Fire Blast or something
Nidoking, level 45
Strength for moving misc. rocks. Plus it beats Horn Attack. Tutored Rock Slide onto him
Clefable, leve 46
Pound (thinking Return here)
Moonlight (thinking Softboiled)
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
Fire Spin (soon Flamethrower)
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.
Personality: Highly curious
Ability: Natural Cure
Special Attack: 46
Special Defense: 60
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!
Beaten all gyms in Diamond. Just need to beat Elite 4.
Shinx Lv 53
Chimecho Lv 44
Gastrodon (Shelly) Lv 59
Clefairy Lv 41
Pichu (Pichy) Lv 31
Pikachu (Zap) Lv 30
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.

Well, my team is still a work in progress, but why not?
Eve / Espeon
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
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
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
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
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
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.
