  1. Default Team building thread


    Ask for help and advice with building teams in pokmon.
    Ask what you lack/need or what could be improved on your team. Or if your team is having problems dealing with a certain pokmon or a certain strategy you can ask for advice for how to handle it with your team.

    Gonna continue this discussion in this thread rather than the other one, thanks Malthe.
    Greninja technically isn't a Water type. It's either Normal, Fighting, Bug or Flying depending on which move I use. And since it is a very fast pokemon, it usually goes first. So it's very rarely Water/Dark.

    I'm thinking of building a Mega Medicham, Mega Blaziken, Mega Gardevoir, Mega Mawile or Mega Aggron, but i'm not sure which one would fit my team the best.

    While the team was pomegranate in general (piss poor type coverage and movesets) I used:

    Talonflame @ Nothing
    Flame Body
    Moves: Acrobatics, Fly, Brave Bird, Flamethrower

    Greninja @ Mystic Water
    Torrent
    Moves: Night Slash, Waterfall, Surf, Hydro Pump

    Blaziken @ Blazikenite
    Speed Boost
    Moves: Cut, Rock Smash, Double Kick, Blaze Kick

    Both Purugly and Grumpig fell in 1-2 hits each. Only the Talonflame was EV trained (252 speed, 126 att/sp att, give or take).

    For Rotation I changed Blaziken a bit to:

    Moves: Cut, Brick Break, Poison Jab, Blaze Kick

    What would be a good final moveset for Blaziken for use at Battle Maison and such since I won't have to deal with its ban in meta-game? May end up breeding the Blaziken for IVs later instead of just move-tutoring and super training for proper EVs.

    A Talonflame with Flame Body? I'd instantly go for Gale Wings. Greninja would be better off using Protean but I guess it's too late for that now. Not sure about Blaziken, I'm afraid.

    Uh, I feel like there should only be one moveset Blaziken should use, and it's


    Swords Dance
    Life Orb / Leftovers
    Speed Boost
    Jolly / Adamant

    4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

    ~ Swords Dance
    ~ Hi Jump Kick
    ~ Protect
    ~ Flare Blitz

    Swords Dance allows you to 1hko or 2hko everything. Protect is for scouting and nabbing another Speed Boost.

    Of course, I might be completely wrong for Battle Maison purposes.

    Keep in mind these are just things I caught and raised for the story. They're all I have at this time. I do have a Gale Wings Fletchinder I'm using for breeding purposes. I have it paired with a Fletchling for 31 IVs in att+speed. Just taking some time to get an egg with Gale Wings.

    I went with Poison Jab because nothing I have counters fairies and my Talonflame winds up just being a suicide with Brave Bird. I wanted to teach Talonflame U-Turn or something, but since I use it in standard game, I needed to keep Fly on it. I also will probably hunt down a Protean Frogadier in Friend Safari soon enough.

    Blaziken should still be able to KO or 2HKO fairies with just a Swords Dance boost, though. The only problem I'd see is Azumarill...which with the right set, pretty much roflstomps your team, but hey, you can't plan for every occurance.

    Beats me for all of this in-game stuff, though.

  8. Default Re: Team building thread


    working on raising a new team mostly because the team I built for the plot is all fire types xD Gotten to about 20 battles using blaziken, charizard, and Delpohox :D

    Gonna EV train the lucario, ralts, Tyrunt, and chester; then add some dragons in for good measure (modest, 31 IV special attack Goomy :D), Potentially Bagon and Gibble too. Then breeding Protean froakies and then the gen 1 starters ><" so much work to be done with so little time :C

    Yeah, my worst bit was a Swalot wall. It had Black Sludge moves were Protect/Toxic/Earthquake/Stockpile. I only won thanks to a crit Blaze Kick. As for Azumarill I would have been rolled if not for rotation allowing a 4th which I put my Venusaur in. Mostly new to the concept of meta-game. I understand a bit as common sense, but some strategies that involve multiple Pokemon elude me still.

  10. Default Re: Team building thread


    Honestly a great team from what I can see. The only points I would like to make is that relying on Return as your main move can be worry-some due to the fact that it's never super effective. I understand the point though (high base power, Normal Gem to allow Acrobatic sweeping.)

    As for switching out Politoed (that's what it sounds like you are leaning towards) I would recommend still using a Specially Offensive+Specially Defensive-mon. Because the rest of your team is entirely physical and both have pretty 'meh' Sp.Def naturally.

    The following could be a good replacement:

    Slowbro
    Ability: Regenerator
    Item: Assault Vest
    252HP/124Sp.Def/132Sp.Atk <- You can spec more in either stat if you feel it's necessary, but a balance in both would be nice.
    Modest Nature (+Sp.Atk, -Atk)
    Moveset: Scald/Ice Beam/Psychic/Flamethrower

    Slowbro naturally already has huge physical bulk. Assault Vest only grants it massive special bulk too, especially when you invest in the Sp.Def stats a bit. He doesn't mind Assault Vest's secondary effect (no set-up moves allowed) because he has recovery in the form of Regenerator and can burn in the form of Scald. This Slowbro is not only an attacker, but a massive tank.

    As for Megas, there aren't many that fill the Specially Offensive+Defensive niche. Maybe Gardevoir?

    Sadly though, I feel like Gourgeist might be a hindrance. Personally I believe there are Pokemon that can do his job much better. But that's just me looking at him on paper, I haven't tried him myself. So maybe he is good.

    Might as well put the team here since I have an idea what to do in the other thread. So here's my team~

    Lead


    Sweeper


    MixAttacker


    Rapid Spinner


    This leaves me with two more pokemon that I have no clue what to do..Aegislash could be a good spinblocker and a decent attacker but Gengar could be better and a more easier pokemon to bluff a mega over Blastoise. The other slot is probably going to be my wish-user so maybe an eeveelution (say Umbreon or Sylveon) maybe best. Jirachi is also another option but I dont think itll be that great of a pokemon to use. On the other slot, a ParaFlinch Togekiss could be better.even if I can fight w/ no fairy moves. The fact that Togekiss can neutralize Dragon Moves and Ground moves is great in my opinion. :b

    Yeah, I would have used a Flying gem if it was available, unfortunately not.

    Slowbro sounds excellent, that's a great idea. might try that out if I can. Gardevoir also sounds like a good Mega for my team.

    1) Whatever you do, don't have a suicide lead anymore. Defog screws that up in the new generation. Either have no Stealth Rock and Defog, or have a Rapid Spinner and a Stealth Rocker. Depends on how much you value Stealth Rock on the opponent.

    2) I'd stick with Iron Head over Toxic on Mawile. I guess I'd put the rest of the Evs in HP if you don't want to invest in Speed? Otherwise, Speed. You could also look at the speed tiers (although this is old, 5th gen) to get an idea of what you want to outspeed. (aka dump some points in speed, some in HP).

    3) Thanks to Fairy being immune to Dragon, if you Outrage on a Fairy you won't stay locked into Outrage. (However, I'm pretty sure it doesn't apply if you KO a Pokemon and they switch to a Fairy). Just a point for Outrage.

    4) You're not going to bluff a Mega if you have a Mawile.

    5) It would be quite helpful to have a Spinblocker if you end up going Stealth Rock.

    6) I can't really judge the rest of your team, but you seem to be very Electric weak at the moment. Galvantara and Sticky Web is going to ruin your day.

    So, I'm still trailing through the storyline, and my 6th slot is still open. Can't settle on a damn thing to fill that gap.. granted most of the time I never need it.

    So far I'm running with Doublade (49), Gabite (47), Vespiqueen (51), Ferrothorn (47), and Delphox (52); I just got the psychic badge.
    Do I need to worry about filling any gaps with that 6th slot? As far as HM's go I usually just pull a bird out of the box, fly from A to B, then dump it right back.

  15. Default Re: Team building thread


    I'd get a good water typing, probably clawitzer since you could use a special attacker.

    Is that available in Y? 'Cause iirc theres that f'ed up seahorse thing too that was the version-specific counterpart to it.

    Oh, no it's not. Hm, I'd focus on water, maybe azumarill? Politoad?

    Just checking my boxes, all I have for water types are Remoraid and Quagsire.

  19. Default Re: Team building thread


    If you don't want to go out and catch invest in remoraid and get octillery, you can use his suction cups ability to catch better water's later.
