Well, at the moment my Special Sweeper for the Battle Frontier is Alakazam, but as the punches are physical on D/P, I won't be able to transfer it to Pearl when I get it. So which Pokémon is a good Speical Sweeper which will also work on D/P. I was thinking Starmie.

Starmie
Modest (+Sp.Atk -Atk)
252 Sp.Atk/252 Spd/4 HP
Surf/Recover
Psychic
Ice Beam
Thunder Beam

But is anything much better?

Surf over Recover, and I'm thinking you mean Thunderbolt.

That's the standard for 3rd gen.

For 4th gen, you'll want Grass Rope over Psychic.

Okay, Thanks. Is Grass Rope a TM in fourth Gen?

Thanks. I'll put that on my Starmie when I get Pearl and transfer it. :-)
