^ or don't!

I'm guessing this is for emerald. iuf you have lg/fr speak now.

Regice for special wall, though i prefer snorlax/blissey if you can get them. Sceptile is okay if you want: Leaf Blade/Thunderpunch/Substitute/Leech Seed.

No , I think Sceptile works well as a ' first aid '

Stop suggesting bad movesets, Sceptile.

EVs need work:

Skarmory
EVs: 252 HP / 64 Atk / 192 Def

Blissey
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef

I'm not ' Hariyama spamming ' !

Just so you know that moveset for Hariyama has won me plenty of battles!

aragornbird
18th December 2006, 7:47 PM
Then stop fighting easy opponents and fight someone who's actually challenging becuase that Hariyama won't get you anywhere.

Anyways, get a Heracross for your Tyranitar weakness.

Heracross (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Swarm
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Megahorn
- Focus Punch
- Facade
- Rock Slide

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 7:47 PM
perhaps a fighting type for the last one. Machamp/Heracross/Breloom/Medicham are all good.

hmmm... I like this one... Can't I use Brick Break instead of FP and EQ instead of Facade...

And why Swarm?

aragornbird
18th December 2006, 7:54 PM
Agh, I copied and pasted from Netbattle and I forgot to change the trait and FP.

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 7:55 PM
You can use Brick Break ingame. Rock Slide and Focus Punch cover everything that earthquake does so no. And you're right, use guts with facade and kill everyhting when statused.

aragornbird
18th December 2006, 7:55 PM
Oh snap, your DDMence EVs are wrong:

EVs: 144 HP / 252 Atk / 112 Spd

[Kingdra]
18th December 2006, 8:00 PM
There's nothing much to change about this team.Rest>Sub on Skarm it isn't NB you don't need it.These items should all pretty much be leftovers...

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 8:01 PM
great nice team.

Arbok of Doom
18th December 2006, 8:01 PM
You guys really help me to put on a team!!!

Is this a good team or should there be brought in an other pokémon or should they get other attacks/items/Ev's

Sceptile_rules06
18th December 2006, 8:02 PM
Hariyama lol

aragornbird
18th December 2006, 8:03 PM
Why'd you put Lum Berry on Starmie and Heracross?
Starmie has Natural Cure and Heracross likes to be Statused.

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 8:03 PM
stick rest on skarm over sub. Give them all leftovers to hold. You could if you liked get a bulky water over starmie but that's just me as i like teams more defensive. Milotic/Suicune are good.

Arbok of Doom
18th December 2006, 8:05 PM
Hariyama lol

LOL! xD , your set rules 8)

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 8:07 PM
okay. It's just a personal preference

Arbok of Doom
18th December 2006, 8:09 PM
okay. It's just a personal preference

yeah, i understand, I could do it, but I can't get another Suicune since I lost Colloseum and I can't find Feebas, screw him! :O

EDIT: oh, wait aragorn beat me :P I like the Slowbro-set, isn't it useful with Psychic, or should I switch Starmie with a Psychical sweeping Alakazam?

[Kingdra]
18th December 2006, 8:20 PM
Slowbro's cool because it can Wall and Sweep...

Arbok of Doom
18th December 2006, 8:24 PM
Good like this?

Physical Sweeper
2 Special Sweeper
Bulky Water
Physical Wall
Special Wall

aragornbird
18th December 2006, 8:24 PM

Wtf? Did I just read Physical and Alakazam in the same sentence?

[Kingdra]
18th December 2006, 8:24 PM
Well then you need a Special Wall...

Sceptile_rules06
18th December 2006, 8:25 PM
Regice????????

Arbok of Doom

No, Psychical , not physical

aragornbird
18th December 2006, 8:26 PM
He already has a Blissey. Read for godsakes.

Also, Psychical isn't a word.

[Kingdra]
18th December 2006, 8:27 PM
Oh, he didn't mention he had a Special Wall he said he had NVM...

W00ps, I'm not english, I'll use Special in the future

BTW, I don't like the part having a bulky water ánd Starmie... How 'bout Alakazam?

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 8:35 PM
i'm confused again :(

Just swap starmie for slowbro. And that's all. Your team should be:

Salamence/Slowbro/Skarmory/Blissey/Heracross/Sceptile

Arbok of Doom
18th December 2006, 8:37 PM

Just swap starmie for slowbro. And that's all.

But then I don't really have a Special sweeper anymore

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 8:39 PM
Sceptile and Slowbro kill things. They are still good. Like i said, personal preference. I like my teams more defensive.

I'll try it w/o Starmie then... Won't edit it yet, but thankx anyway!

sceptile as subseeder ftw. and yeh slowbro is a great wall.

Arbok of Doom
20th December 2006, 2:50 PM
You guys don't have to post movesets (instead you really want so), but can you put on alternatives, cuz sometimes my friend borrows my pokémon for League/BF e.d.

oh, and rather no ubers plz!

Heracross:
Salamence:
Slowbro: Starmie
Sceptile:
Skarmory:
Blissey:

ludicolo_kid
20th December 2006, 7:04 PM
thats a good team imo. No problems. Half your team is weak to fire- Hera/Sceppy/Skarm but then the other half cover that as slowbro and mence resist and blissey may as well be immune with her hp and sp def. Just use the sets already stated and your good to go.
