    I am also going to breed my Gothita, and can't decide between Dark Pulse or Mirror Coat as an egg move since I can't have both (I'm quite indecisive if you hadn't guessed lol).

    Suggestions?
    well i don't know sort of battling style you have but seiemitoed = offensive and jellicent = defensive, though jellicent does have a decent type synergy with your team.

    Again, i don't know what will you be using gothita for. It can learn shadow ball, which means dark pulse isn't necessary and your team has 3 pokemon who can use dark type moves and get stab for them.

    I'm having troubles with the battle subway. I can't seem to get through the 3rd round in order to go against the subway leader. Here is the team I usually use:

    (take note: I don't have very useful items right now since I obviously need the battle points to get them!)
    Eelektross
    item: scope lens
    ability: levitate
    stats: attack: 139, defence: 85, sp. attack: 113, sp. defence: 94, spe: 79
    crunch
    flamethrower
    wild charge
    dragon claw
    - considering they are all tms I would be open to any changes to this moveset, although i do really like wild charge.

    Samurott:
    ability: torrent
    item: rocky helmet
    stats: a: 134, def: 111, sp. attack: 122, sp. def: 98, spe: 99
    swords dance
    aqua tale
    aqua jet
    mega horn
    - I'm trying to EV train it in sp. defence because i find that it screws me over the worst, but I can do better. I wouldn't mind an overhaul with this moveset either but I do want to keep aqua jet. When its low on health it can come in handy.

    Volcorana:
    ability: flame body
    item: silverpowder
    a: 74, def: 73, sp att: 142, sp. def: 117, spe: 115
    quiver dance
    flame thrower
    hidden power (grass)
    bug buzz
    - I'm open to suggestion here with the moveset but I'm not planning on changing quiver dance or bug buzz.

    Any suggestions will be helpful as well as EV training isuggestions, thanks!.

    I'm no expert but I'd take either aqua jet or aqua tail off Samurott. It can learn something like Night Slash (needs to be bred though) or re-learn Revenge.

    In terms of Unova Pokemon (Pre-National Dex), who would you say is a good user of Sunny Day? I've got a good chunk of the rest of the team set, but I'm unsure who to have as a Sunny Day/Solarbeam user.

    Try an elektross with coil, d-claw, wild charge and filler move. I would use rest for the last move slot and make him hold chesto berry. Invest in spdef if you go with this movest. Its somewhat risky but coil is definitely elektross' best move,imo.

    Nice set for sammurot. Keep aqua jet. It is useful. I would suggest waterfall since aqua tail tends to miss every time for me. Make him hold muscle band or life orb or lum berry.

    Psychic >> hp grass. You can't hit fire types with any of your coverage moves. Thus, Psychic is more powerful and has better coverage. If you don't use it on ellektross, you can also consider the chesto berry + rest idea here (rest instead of psychic). if you don't I think the item leftovers will work best for volcarona.

    @troper1016
    A Lilligant with clorophyll ability(its not necessary though) is definitely the best.

    Thanks for the suggestions! Coil would be very useful actually but that would mean I would have to catch another tynamo, evolve it and train it up until it learns coil :( (unless there's another way??) I thought HP grass was a good idea for bulky water and grounds but I psychic is a great move so it would probably still hit them hard. I may go for that suggestion. Good call on samurott too.

    Is it possible to relearn it using that move relearner?

    Not unless Eelecktross has it in it's own level-up moveset, which i don't know, myself, having never trained an eelecktross.

    Coil should be relearnable.

    Eelektross doesn't learn Coil, so it can't relearn it once it's evolved from Eelektrik.



    So, I'm planning to do a mono-Grass type runthrough of HG. So far I've decided on Budew, Tropius and Lotad. I'm looking for help/suggestions for the other three? Tropius and Lotad have to stay for Fly and Surf, respectively. I also don't want to use starters, legendaries or Breloom (I used Breloom on my SS team, so it would feel repetitive).

    So, any help/suggestions?

    You haven't considered Sunkern, Tangela, Oddish, Seedot, Shroomish, Cacnea, Bellsprout, Hoppip, or Snover, have you?

    Snover would be a must on that team. Seedot too I'd imagine. Shroomish is out of the question.

    Nope, I learned this the hard way. The move relearner won't be able to re-teach your Poke if that evolution doesn't learn it via levelling up - I think it was my Whimsicott this happened to. I replaced Stun Spore thinking I can just relearn it after I level up and evolve, but no. :(

    Shroomish is a no because it evolves into Breloom. Snover is also a no because the Hail it brings isn't great :< Some of the others are really weak too (Sunkern). Seedot/Nuzleaf/Shiftry don't learn any good moves without TMs/tutoring.

    Cacnea and Tangela are the only ones I could see myself using. Is this all of the Grass-types?

    Seedot and Snover are both a no, unfortunately :( See my above response as to why.

    And yeah, Eelektrik learns it but Eelektross doesn't, so it won't relearn it at a move tutors. Anything that evolves via a stone cannot usually learns much at move relearners.

    Have you considered Lilleep and Paras? Up to Gen IV, minus starters, I think you mentioned/considered/dismissed all of the options.
