View Full Version : Emerald New Team Help
3rd September 2006, 10:18 PM
So I restarted my Emerald game and I have a level 10 Ralts and a level 20 Marshtomp (took me a while to find a Ralts). Anyway, thats beside the point. I have about 10 pokemon and I need help figuring out which ones to use. I like powerhouses, high HP, and high defense. I need to know which pokes I should use, and any move changes. Please dont recommend Hidden Power and a certain type, because I dont know how to use that. I dont have any item or nature specifications, but if you have recommendations let me know. Anyway here are my ideas:
(There in abc order)
Crunch/ Sand- Attack
Solarbeam/ Giga drain (for recovery)
Get Back to me soon!!!
Because I'm not gonna raise my ralts if I shouldn't use him.

Well, Hidden Power is a very useful move and is worth your time to look into it. Check the main site and the sticky and if that doesn't help, PM and I'll try to explain it.
I dunno who exactly you should pick, but I'll give suggestions for the ones I know:
-Quick Attack/Fire Blast
-Substitute? <-- Ideally HP Water/Ice/Grass
-Explosion/Shadow Ball/Sludge Bomb
-Agility/Shadow Ball/Sludge Bomb
-Swords Dance/Fake Out

hyper beam = no
hypnosis + dream eater = no

Why not hypnosis and dream eater?
That's a good combo.
And I dont think I'll use hyper beam, I dont like 2 turn attacks very much.

Hypnosis' accuracy is too low to be able to depend upon it all the time, and if you can't put the enemy to sleep, Dream Eater does nothing. Besides, why waste half your moveset for a combo that might restore a bit of HP (since that's its only significant advantage over Psychic), when you can use those two slots for moves like Tbolt and Will-o-wisp, which give you more type coverage and allow you to weaken physical sweepers.

Pain Split / Rest
Flygon@lefties / Choice Band
Screech / Fire Blast
Fire Blast is for the Choice Band set. Use lefties if you're using Screechgon.
Light Screen / Protect
Reflect / Protect
This thing can't do much though.
Metagross@lefties / Choice Band
Agility / Sludge Bomb
Use Agility with Leftovers and Choice Band with Sludge Bomb. No matter what the version is, Explosion from Metagross will kill almost anything.
Salamence@lefties / Choice Band
Dragon Dance / Fire Blast
Dragon Dancers are deadly. So is the Choice Band set. Fire Blast is there on the Choice Band set to kill Skarmory and other physical walls.
Brick Break / Explosion
One of the best Sunnybeamers in the game. Or you could use the pure physical set.
Shiftry@lefties / Choice Band
Swords Dance / Fake Out
Or you could use Cursepert:
Brave / Relaxed / Sassy Nature
Surf / Ice Beam / Hydro Pump
Encore / Toxic / Yawn
Changes are in BOLD.

Torkoal is much better than Magcargo.
Dusclops is best used without any attack moves.
4th September 2006, 4:28 PM
Well I picked the team I'm gonna use.
And I dont like to breed
So any revisions would be helpful.
And Frost how would I get that many leftovers? There's only 2 in the game.

Well, at the very least you should breed for Salamence so you get Dragon Dance. Other than that, I think you should be able to get by without breeding, although some egg moves are better than what you'd end up using (Will-o-wisp vs Hypnosis for example)

Thanks for the advice.
What should I breed with Bagon for Dragon Dance?
And does the poke have to know the move or just use it in the future?

Altaria learns it at Lv.40, and the father has to know the move for it to be passed down to the baby, if that's what you're asking.
5th September 2006, 8:58 PM
Ya thats what I meant.
Is there anyone who learns it earlier?
I dont want to spend that much time on it if I dont have to.
And why would I have to teach him dragon dance if it doesnt have dragon attacks?
Or does that boost regular attacks too?
I cant always remember and it sucks thats serebii's domain was stolen.
5th September 2006, 9:20 PM
it boosts all physical attacks (oddly, those do not include dragon-type attacks).
altaria is the quickest to learn DD.
6th September 2006, 12:26 AM
Ya I looked up horsea and it doesnt learn it until freakin 50. AHh.
6th September 2006, 5:17 AM
Keep in mind you can catch high level wild Altarias to minimize leveling up (in the Rayquaza tower thing)

Oh ok cool thanks.
