    Because it's over used and I don't want to be like everyone else, plus I'm not too keen on weather battles.

    All though it would be good though. Maybe I'll try it, thanks for the tip :)

    You should use whatever suits your team and playing style. for example, if your favourite becomes Ou, you will stop using him?

    also, you might want to consider swift swim poliwrath. politoed will give the rain which will remove the need for salac berry and increase poliwrath's speed to very high levels. Poliwrath's waterfall will also hit like a truck after that which means you can remove belly drum(it is very risky to use BD in doubles). Just put in bulk up or something if you wanna boost.

    Whats more, you can also put in thunder on manectric since it will always hit.

    You can also put in something like swift swim Kabutops or Kingdra(they aren't Ou) instead of swampert but its your call.

    unless absolutely necessary, you should remove fly(get a hm slave for it) from braviary and replace it with u turn or return.
    NEVER EVER USE VOLCARONA WITHOUT QUIVER DANCE. Remove sunny day + solar beam and put in Qd + psychic.

    Did a complete overhaul of my team to use more for Wifi and Battle Frontier. Bred like a baziliion of each to get the best IV's possible. There's gotta be an easy, nonpokesav way to get good IV's... Anyways

    Feraligatr
    Nature: +Att, - Sp Att
    EVs: near max HP, near max Sp Def, some Def
    Leftovers

    Dragon Dance
    Subsitute
    Waterfall
    Ice Punch

    Crobat
    Nature: +Att, - Sp Def
    EVs: Near Max HP, near Max Att, some Speed
    Life Orb

    U-turn
    Pursuit
    Brave Bird
    Toxic/Roost (I think toxic would be better for Wifi, roost for BF)

    Mamoswine (snowcloak)
    Nature: +Att, -Sp Att
    EVs: Near max HP, Near Max Attack, some defense
    NevermeltIce/Choiceband?

    Hail
    Ice Shard
    Earthquake
    Bite/Stone Edge (think stone edge is better for wifi, Bite for BF)

    Victreebel
    Nature: +Att, -Def
    EV's: Near Max Att, Near Max Speed, some Sp Att
    Focus Sash

    Leaf Blade
    Sucker Punch
    HP Ground
    Sleep Powder

    Forretress
    Nature: +Sp Def, -Speed
    EVs: Near max HP, Split Defense/Sp Defence
    Leftovers

    Stealth Rock
    Spikes
    Rapid spin/Bug Bite (rapid spin for spinning away hazards, mainly wifi. Bug Bite for Battle Frontier)
    GyroBall/Explosion/Protect (gyroball mainly for BF, then Explosion, protect, or gyro for wifi)

    Slowking (technically still slowpoke, but i'll evolve him once i get access to NWFC)
    Nature: +Def, -Att
    EVs:Near Max Defence, Sp Defence, some HP
    Leftovers

    ThunderWave
    Nasty Plot (Technically still Slack Off but I'm gonna change it)
    Surf
    Psychic

    So thats my team. Please give ratings based on Wifi capabilities/Battle Frontier Abilities. Thanks! I haven't tried the Battle frontier with it yet. I've just been spamming Battle Factory for BP to get my moves. Also breeding for Hidden Power + Good Nature BLOWS! Does anyone play GenIV on wifi anymore?

    @torf.0'

    Unfortunately, your team in it's current state isn't very competitive. I'd suggest looking a look at Smogon's analyses for DPP OU Pokemon. Your first team should be one that utilizes common Pokemon and standard movesets. Once your level of skill increases, you can begin making more original teams.

    Yes, people still have Gen. IV battles on both Wi-Fi and simulators. Gen. V battles, however, are easier to find.

    @Heathcliff Huxtable

    I actually downloaded Pokemon Online the other day and took this team online, albeit with perfect IVs rather than the best i could get with breeding. It was surprisingly competitive in GenV standard, really the only thing that gave me trouble where scarfed Max Attack Haxourous leads. Crobat makes an excellent lead/scout, I will admit that there are better ones. U-Turn on unfavorable matchups and if predict a switch then either pursuit or toxic can really damage an opponent. Forrettress is always good for setting up/spinning away rocks, although I almost always has to sacrifice him. If I can predict a good double switch and Slowking or Feraligatr can set up its game over. Mamoswine makes an excellent revenge killer on dragons with IceShard, and has good coverage with Stone Edge and STAB with Earthquake. I admit Victreebel sucks out of the sun. He's basically a one and done unless i can get a good sleep powder in. Not saying this team is good by any means, cause its not anyone who knows what there doing can 6-0 me like nothing ever happened. Especially Sandrush Excadrill or Scarf Haxourous, but if the hax are in my favor and with some good predicting this team can rack up consistent wins. And call me a noob, cause i am one :P but the fact that my noobness is unpredictable really gives me the edge in alot of battles. I haven't played GenIV on PO with this match up but I think that I would have alot of success with it. I haven't gone on Smogon yet, eventually I'll have too, but I'm gonna hold out on that untill I get completely stomped in wifi or PO and get pwned. :P In my first few days, I've realized that alot of skills that apply in card games like Poker or Pitch apply in Pokemon. I may be a noob but I'm not newby. Maybe I've just battled noobs though... (I did beat a guy with Mewtwo and Giratina on his team and after I yelled at him for bringing ubers into a standard match, he was like WTF is an uber??? certainly not everyone on PO is that retarded...)

    Anyways, thanks for your help. I know that its probably really hard to rate gimmicky teams, I just posted to see if I could get an experts opinion on my current team. its not unrealistic that this team is really bad and I just didn't know since i was having so much success with it

    In that scenario, You can literally put in any moves on the top 4 pokes and sweep through in game. Still if you want more detailed advice, you will need to give me the current movesets, natures, etc.

    Changes in bold. I'll have to say that the natures of some of your pokes are pretty awkward.

    I know...

    The nature's *are* awkward. But...however, the nature's are not that bad and neither are the stats for my pokemon.

    Thanks for the movesets! Those were what I was looking for.
    My mewtwo is about 3 levels away from learning recover in White and I will teach mewtwo those moves as soon as possible and that I am able to teach it those moves when I can find them in the game, or the type time time that I play White in my spare time. Draco Meteor shoiuld be discarded on Zekrom mnost definitely, also, as that was not a wise decision to get rid of dragon claw for it now that I look back on that, even though draco meteor should only be used on other dragon types for only one time and should never really be used in a heated battled with other trainers on infared or you can try to use it but you woud need to switch out directly after using draco meteor.

    if you are battling against a human, you can fire of one draco meteor to obliterate any physical wall and then finish it of with a physical attack. A mixed attacker, you see.
