Ok, since I heard Diamond and Pearl were going to be online games, I've been very serious about being good at these games. I've learned a lot(I think), and if I don't know something I'll ask. I wanted to see if anyone could help me with the team I'm working on. I'm basically going by the pokemon guides done by Smogon.com with a few exceptions, so there isn't too much originality. =P I've read into their strategies, so I think I'll be able to play them decently.

Any advice would be very much appreciated! =)

I'm not 100% sure how to train my Weezing, any help on that would be great. And overall, do you think this team would work? It seems like it would be pretty good to me, but I'm kinda new at this. I would go with HP bug on Dugtrio instead of sludge bomb, but I figured that'd be pretty hard, and It would be useless when d/p come out, because HP will be a special move. Thanks again, to anyone who offers advice! =)

I guess Sludge Bomb is okay if this isn't on NB. Otherwise, use HP Bug.

Get your own thread then.

Also be sure to visit Smogon (http://www.smogon.com/rs/pokemon/) before posting your first competitive team.

Agilegross does not need more than 180 Spd (not EVs) nowadays... I haven't seen a Timid/Jolly base 130 spd in like forever. And if I do see one they sacrifice valuable attack power that Gross makes short work of anyway.

I personally think Gengar would be a better lead for your team. Scares most leads away. Gengar doesn't need all of that Atk anyway. It'd be wise to invest some into Hp or Sp. Def, otherwise Blissey will walk all over it with IB.

Gross should get a bit more Def in my opinion since it is your ownly Norm/Fly resist.

Also, there's not much you can do about Celebi :( Dugtrio doesn't even OHKO it anymore....

Also, BlazikenBud... Why not ask one of the veterans to like help you or something? In private.
