    I'm playing in game Pokemon Black for the first time, and having trouble picking out a sixth Pokemon for my team. I tried to go for Cryogonal, but it's about as fragile as... well, as a snowflake. So, I need one more, and I'm open to ideas!

    My team as follows, currently:

    Samurott (Lv. 41) @ Mystic Water (Torrent)
    - Surf
    - Slash
    - X-Scissor
    - Razor Shell
    HP - 135
    ATK - 114
    DEF - 80
    SPATK - 88
    SPDEF - 71
    SPD - 78

    Archeops (Lv. 42) @ No item (Defeatist)
    - Acrobatics
    - Rock Slide
    - Crunch
    - Dig
    HP - 124
    ATK - 128
    DEF - 79
    SPATK - 105
    SPDEF - 60
    SPD - 109

    Lilligant (Lv. 42) @ Miracle Seed (Chlorophyll)
    - Quiver Dance
    - Giga Drain
    - Synthesis
    - SolarBeam
    HP - 120
    ATK - 60
    DEF - 78
    SPATK - 122
    SPDEF - 77
    SPD - 94

    Krookadile (Lv. 41) @ Rocky Helmet (Intimidate)
    - Crunch
    - Dig
    - Strength
    - Focus Blast
    HP - 133
    ATK - 118
    DEF - 62
    SPATK - 60
    SPDEF - 65
    SPD - 97



    I'm currently making my way through the Twist Mountain, and I plan on picking up a Durant at the Victory Road, but I can't decide on a sixth Pokemon. It would also be nice if you could let me know of any glaring mistakes on my team! Thanks! (If you think of a better replacement for Durant, do let me know, though I like it a lot)

    EDIT - Just something in mind; if it's possible to get a Pokemon that has no evolutions for the sixth, that would be great! I have personal reasons for this, being that I have Krookodile and Samurott, 3 stage Pokemon, Lilligant and Archeops, 2 stage Pokemon, and Durant, a one stage Pokemon. Obviously I won't hold myself to this if it compromises my team, though.

    @Dr. Slavic ;

    Because your team has three members weak to Ice and only on resist, I'd say go with something that resists Ice. If you don't want Cryogonal, there still is other Pokemon like Heatmor available. But if you don't mind getting something that does evolve, go with Darmanitan or Bisharp

    Girafirig and alakazam work better as special attackers. Especially Alakazam, why even put false swipe and giga impact on it? Try hidden power. Luxray is pretty good for ingame. Does your game have access to a move tutor that teaches superpower? if you are able to get it try putting that on luxray. As for other pokemon, can't really say much because there are so many. What other ones have you been thinking of using?

    - because you have acrobatics maybe you can search for some flying gems for archeops. With acrobatics it becames real deadly. Do you really need focus blast on krokodile? See if lilligant has a useful hidden power and teach it that because it's coverage is pretty bad. Cryogonal's special defense is almost as good as skarmory's physical... if you had a pokemon (maybe your 6th?} that has very high physical defense then you can just switch it out if you are up against a hard physical hitter.

    Default Stuck on Movesets? [INGAME ONLY]

    Hey there. I have seen many Pokemon Black and White playthroughs on YouTube, and I have noticed that a lot of people are stuck on what Pokemon to use and what move sets they should have and if they're any good or not when it comes to the elite four. So I feel like helping you guys with problems involving movesets, as I think I have a fair bit of knowledge in the 5th gen ingame area. I have played Pokemon White with every starter, so I think I know some good ideas with them.

    So what you need to do is just simply name a Pokemon who you are having trouble with or just curious about, and I will give an in-depth analysis of them, give them a grade based on what moves they can learn, their stats and how/when they evolve, and give some possible move set ideas for them.

    TEH RULEZ
    Only five requests per day, so if five people have posted before you in a day, please wait until tomorrow.
    Only one request per day per person.
    The Pokemon can only be 5th gen Pokemon.
    Please don't troll, it just wastes time and it's not worth it.

    I am open to any feedback, good and bad.

    Also, if there is a thread like this, mods, lock the thread.

    Bye for now.

    Default Re: Stuck on Movesets? [INGAME ONLY]

    I could use some help with my Haxorus's moveset.

    I know I want:
    Dragon Claw
    Earthquake

    I don't know what to use for the last 2. I usually don't user stat booster moves (like swords dance), especially because his attack is already so high. And I don't like moves with low accuracy (so I never use Hydro Pump, Thunder, Blizzard, etc.) And I want his moveset to be completely physical, no special attacks. I was thinking about adding slash, but I don't know.

    @toonytown

    HAXORUS

    This guy is pretty freakin overused, I personally don't know why. The only stat which is really outstanding is his enormous 147 base attack! That's more than Excadrill! It's defences at 76/90/70 really aren't anything to boast about, and his speed is trolled by Hydreigon, at 98, one more than Haxy. It appears much earlier that the other dragon types in the game, and doesn't fully evolve until level 48, by that time, you'd probably be at the Elite four, if not, beaten them already.

    Let's talk about the abilities, Mold Breaker. This disables the use of abilities. This can be beneficial in cases such as if the opponent has something like Levitate or especially the Mummy ability, famously gained by CoFAGrigus. It's other ability, Rivalry, raises the attack stat if the opponent is of the same gender. I personally don't like this ability, because when you're up against a pokemon that has a disadvantage to you, only some of the time, will you be able to do good damage to them, and knowing you don't want any stat boosting moves, e.g. Dragon Dance, it becomes even more useless. :(

    Grade - C+ (Not bad, but not amazing either)

    Obviously, you'd want to make use of Haxy's incredible Physical Attack stat, so here's a movement that I think fits your standards...

    Haxorus @ Ghost/Bug Gem
    Ability - Mold Breaker
    -Dragon Claw
    -Rock Slide
    -Earthquake
    -Shadow Claw/X Scissor

    This set is basically a standard in game set, apart from Dragon/Swords Dance. In replacement of that, I have put in Rock Slide for QuakeEdge coverage. Give it the Bug or Ghost gem to give it some extra power, and if you choose Shadow Claw, it may get a 4x boost if it gets a critical hit. You wanted Earthquake and Dragon Claw, and I dont disagree with that, they're the best attacking moves he will learn. I wouldn't recommend Slash, because you have Shadow Claw, which has the same power and crit ratio, but SC is actually super effective against something!

    If that doesn't work out for you, you could get an Eviolite Fraxure to give it some extra bulk, with the moves...

    -Dragon Dance (I know you don't like it, but it really helps its mediocre speed)/Payback
    -Dragon Claw
    -Return
    -X Scizzor

    Hope this helped and taught you a few things about Haxy.
