    I have a freshly evolved Feraligatr I got in a trade (as a Totodile) from someone here on the forums, and I'd like to use him for the PWT or Battle Subway. Can anyone give me any tips on what I should have in terms of a moveset?

    I want to restart my B2 becuase I F**ked up my first (And last) file because of poor pokemon choice, so i decide "Why not do something different and try and make my SP team more like something you would see in MP (I.E. less brawn, more Brain.)

    Anyways, This is my (Proposed) team!
    Asterix (*) means that there are multiple moves I am thinking of putting in that spot, this is where I am going to need some help.

    First Pokemon:


    Second Pokemon:

    Sixth Pokemon:

    Tell me what you think, and if you have something to suggest, don't hesitate to tell me!

    I would strongly suggest using a magnemite/ton/zone in your playthrough. You get it as early as just before the poison gym (convenient, since steel is immune to poison). Moves are pretty flexible, as long as you have STAB. I'd try to get one with sturdy, too, as words fail to describe how useful that is against gym leaders/boss trainers. He's also got pretty nice bulk, though it's not enough to be careless with (it is better than Amphy in that regard, at least).
    In addition, for Elesa, I would suggest using an Onix equipped with rock tomb and Dig/Earthquake(if you can obtain it somehow via a trade-tradeback). Her entire team is just shy of useless against an Onix.

    As for snivy/serperior, I got a Jolly (+Speed, -SpAtk) one for my starter, so I decided to run a bulky physical sweeper set on it.
    Basically,
    -Leaf Blade
    -Coil
    -Aqua Tail
    -Giga Drain
    Eventually, I gave it leftovers, and giga drain does a ton when overgrow is in affect (only time you'll really want to use it). Otherwise, set up one or two coils, then use Leaf Blade and Aqua Tail with reckless abandon. I'd recommend AT over Iron Tail only because Iron Tail is pretty redundant with Serperior's grass STAB.

    The movesets look pretty good. You'll probably have to trade Tirtouga and Archen over from B/W though since you can't get those two until after the E4 in Black 2.

    I got up to Virbank Gym with that team and decided to change them after I remembered how limited Snivy's moveset was (I originally chose Snivy because Dragon Pulse would've made it so much more useful for Iris). What do you think of the new team (I have them all in their base forms, but this is how they'll work out eventually)...

    Flygon
    Ability: Levitate, Nature: Adamant
    Moves: Earthquake, Dragon Claw, Fire Punch, ThunderPunch

    Volcarona
    Ability: Flame Body, Nature: Bold
    Moves: Bug Buzz, Flamethrower, Giga Drain, Fly

    Crustle
    Ability: Shell Armor, Nature: Adamant
    Moves: X-Scissor, Stone Edge, Earthquake, Aerial Ace

    Galvantula
    Ability: Compoundeyes, Nature: Modest
    Moves: Bug Buzz, Thunder, Energy Ball, Thunder Wave

    Ferrothorn
    Ability: Iron Barbs, Nature: Brave
    Moves: Power Whip, Gyro Ball, Leech Seed, Toxic

    Jellicent
    Ability: Cursed Body, Nature: Modest
    Moves: Surf, Shadow Ball, Ice Beam, Waterfall

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

    I plan on starting a new file on Black 2 in the future. Can anyone rate the team I've selected, and help with the last slot?

    Fearow (Fly, Drill Run, Drill Peck, Assurance/U-Turn)
    Weezing (Sludge Bomb, Assurance, Flamethrower, Gyro Ball)
    Lilligant (Giga Drain, Petal Dance, Quiver Dance, Toxic)
    Crustle (X-Scissor, Rock Wrecker, Shell Smash, Earthquake)
    Zoroark (Night Slash/Night Daze, Flamethrower, Shadow Ball, Focus Blast/U-Turn)

    I need help deciding a sixth slot, and it has to be a Water type. I've narrowed it down to either Golduck, Vaporeon, Floatzel, or Starmie. Any suggestions?

    Starmie, by a very long way. Fast, strong, awesome-looking, versatile and has a lot of coverage. Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam and Thunderbolt and that purple hero is unstoppable.

    I've never used Starmie before @Keasbey;, so I will definitely consider it! Which of its abilities is better, Illuminate or Natural Cure?

    Natural Cure, by far. Every time you switch out or a battle ends, status conditions are cured. Illuminate has no effect in battle, all it does is increase wild Pokémon encounter rate by 200%.

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

    So, I've decided that while I still have my current savefile, I want to try and get one of those challenge medels. As in, defeat the E4 with a single Pokemon type. I've chosen Dragon to start with. Can anyone look at the team I've assembled and give some pointers?

    Haxorus (Shiny)
    - Female
    - Adamant (Somewhat vain)
    - Mold Breaker
    - Shadow Claw, Dragon Claw, X-Scissor, Earthquake (Current moves)
    - I'll be replacing Dragon Claw with Outrage soon

    Seadra (Will evolve into Kingdra soon)
    - Female
    - Lax (Capable of taking hits)
    - Sniper
    - Dragon Dance, Hydro Pump, Dragon Pulse, Ice Beam (Current moves)
    - I definitely want to replace Dragon Dance, but I'm not sure with what move. Hydro Pump will likely be replaced with Surf.

    Dragonite
    - Male
    - Jolly (Quick to flee)
    - Inner Focus
    - Dragon Dance, Dragon Rush, Wing Attack, Thunder Wave (Current moves)
    - Thunder Wave is staying. I will replace Dragon Rush with Outrage once it levels up a bit.

    Druddigon
    - Female
    - Lonely (Likes to fight)
    - Rough Skin
    - Shadow Claw, Revenge, Night Slash, Outrage (Current moves)
    - Should I replace Revenge with Superpower?

    Hydreigon
    - Female
    - Relaxed (Scatters things often)
    - Levitate
    - Dragon Pulse, Toxic, Fly, Body Slam (Current moves)
    - I'm keeping Dragon Pulse, but I might go with Fire Blast, Focus Blast, and another move that I can't decide on.

    I have Kyurem as my final slot (Impish, Somewhat vain; Pressure; Scary Face, Glaciate, Dragon Claw, Imprison), but should I replace it with Flygon?

    @FallenIdol_453;

    Kingdra: if you're set on replacing Dragon Dance, there isn't really much it has attacking-wise. Only Signal Beam adds to its coverage, but I don't know if you want that. Other options would be Yawn or maybe Agility to boost your speed more than Dragon Dance would, which could be helpful. Or you could go for Draco Meteor for situations where you might need a lot of power to quickly take something out.

    Dragonite: Are you sure you want to keep Wing Attack? I would go for Fly instead if you're going with a flying type move

    Druddigon: It's not really going to outspeed anything anyway so I'd keep Revenge to avoid the stat decrease that comes with Superpower. You'd be getting the same amount of power. Shadow Claw or Night Slash are pretty much the same move so I'd replace one of them with Earthquake, Rock Slide or Aqua Tail for added coverage.

    Hydreigon: Dark Pulse or Surf.

    I'm starting White 2, and this is my possible planned team:

    Serperior (Overgrow) - Coil/Calm Mind, Leaf Blade/Giga Drain, Outrage/Dragon Pulse, ???

    Excadrill (Sand Force) - Sandstorm, Drill Run, Rock Slide, Iron Head

    Braviary (Defiant) - Fly, Crush Claw, Shadow Claw, Super Power

    Chandelure or Darmanitan

    Ampharos or Magnezone

    Golduck or Starmie


    I haven't quite decided on the last three, any suggestions?
