Well I never thaught about the phisical move but i'm certain Salamence wouldn't stay in on a Swampert and I think it could get the OHKO anyway.
I'm gunna give that set a rain check, it doesn't really seem to make much sence purely using its weaker offence without Specs :/
Might I add Cradily with it's high Defences, 1.5 SpDef boost in SS and the ability to use Toxic is a very good choice.

Breeding the Mudkip with a Ttar, I filled a box full of eggs. Hatching the eggs, i sived through them and these are probibly the best 3.
C Mudkip - #258 (Relaxed)
Def: 25 - 26
D Mudkip - #258 (Relaxed)
J Mudkip - #258 (Relaxed)
Att: 27 - 28
Now, like the guy with Garchomp, I need advice on which one is the best for a Mix Pert. Help? :o
I'd choose C due to its stats being the most well-rounded out of all of them, except for Speed. But it's Relaxed anyway, so does it matter? =P
C is better for Mixpert but D has better defenses and full physical Pery works too.
Thank's, i'll go with "C". If anyone wants "D" then they can PM and we can negociate nicknames and such.
I think this qualifies as an RMT question...
With the advent of the Move Tutor coming out in Platinum, did Mespirit get any moves that would make a Jolly nature feasible to use (elemental punches or something, perhaps)?
Yes, Mesprit gets all of the elemental punches on Platinum. I think Azelf and Uxie get them as well.
I know Azelf gets the elemental punches, I recall someone making a big deal on how it can go all physical now, though I prefer Mesprits being more wallish but it does work.
...Eh. How good of an idea is it to have a Gardy with WoW and/or Shadow Ball on it? And if it is for either or both, what else could I throw on it out of its usual levelup pool? It's Modest natured.
Well, Gardevoir actually does pretty well for a status inducer, so WoW is a decent move on it. Not sure about Shadow Ball.
On second thought...look at the first two sets. Both feature a Modest nature and WoW:
EDIT: I suppose I should rephrase my question from before -- I had just used the Elemental Punches as an example, not specifically 'did Mespirit get the Elemental Punches in Platinum'. So...how about this. Given the moves that it will have access to in Platinum, could a Mespirit with a Jolly nature possibly be usable competitively, and if so, how?
Gardevoir generally shine in the supportive-defensive front rather than the all-put sweeper front so Will-o-Wisp is good. I'm not really a fan of Shadow Ball on it preferring Thunderbolt since the ability Trace allows it to counter some Gyarados on the switch in.

I have 3 pokemon for wifi battle tower challanges. I usually keep two of them the same as they do quite well if used right. I always keep dragonite and emploeon. What do you think? I am trying to beat as many battle rooms as possible with the same 3 pokemon, maybe change one (not emploeon or dragonite, they usually stay). At moment my team is as follows
Luxray "Rayzor"@Shell Bell
Attack: 132, Defense: 106, Sp. Atk: 116, Sp. Def: 106, Speed: 83
Dragonite@Lum Berry (Snap it out of confusion after outrage if its not got status problem before that)
Attack: 153, Defense: 107, Sp. Atk: 115, Sp. Def: 108, Speed: 112
Attack: 118, Defense: 114, Sp. Atk: 129, Sp. Def: 10617, Speed: 73
Blizzard (It usually hits with me so I find it better than ice beam)
with emploeon, I usually use substatute first, unless I can take pokemon out easily, then I don't. I use Blizzard for dragons, usually hits when substatute is there. Leftovers is usually good anyway.
On dragonite, I usually use outrage first and lum berry snaps it out of confusion afterwards. Then outrage again if needed. I used to put dragonite first, but luxray goes first because of its 3 fang moves. I maight need to change rest and its shell bell with something better if anyone can help.

its the leftovers that usually keep it going, if it can't substatute first then use them. Blizzard usually hits pokemon, (hardly had an instance besides fly or dig that bizzard did not hit, or when a lucky dragionite decided to avoid it!)
Also, I have a dragonite, but it knowing outrage does not always help, but when the time I can actually use it, it leaves the garchomp with few or 1hp left and does not KO it (usually when I have already used it to faint previous pokem on in battle). I would give it ice beam, but it gets KO'd with dragon claw usually first before it can attack.
Ideas guys and gals? Any help would be appreciated.
First off you do not want to switch into a Garchomp with your Empoleon. Starmie would be better, or Gyarados into an EQ.
Ice Beam is more reliable IMO, but since you happen to be very lucky, I see you have Swampert coverage, so he can't safely switch in. Empoleon is built for taking special hits and hitting back even harder.
EDIT: Anyone have improvements for this Azumarill?
Ability: Huge Power
EVs: 252 Atk/200 Spe/56 HP
Nature: Adamant(+Atk, -Sp. Atk)
Aqua Jet is for a priority STAB, although, Waterfall is there for more power(although Aqua Jet helps Azumarill's poor speed), Ice Punch is for slow Grasses and Gliscor, Return allows it to hurt Bulky Waters(except Swampert porbably) and Superpower hits Skarm harder than Waterfall.
