When you first popped Pokemon Diamond / Pearl / Platinum into your Nintendo DS / DSi / etc., what was the first team you made?

The first time I played Diamond, I got alot of Pokemon I thought were cool.

I started with Turtwig, then caught a Starly, then Budew, then Murkrow and finally Kricketot.

I don't know what possessed me to catch Kricketot, but it got PokeBox-Bound quickly.

Replaced it for Shellos.

Endteam was:

Torterra
Staraptor
Roserade
Honchcrow
Gastrodon

Yes. That is in order in how much I used each Pokemon >.<

Hardly ever used Honchcrow and Gastrodon.

Ah my first team in diamond was great.
I started with chimchar cause he was the coolest and quickly caught a starly(very useful). Then i decided to catch a budew and onix they were with me until, about the fourth or fifth gym were they just became a bother to train. Roserade i didn't use to often, onix i would take out of the box so i could use rock climb. I soon got a shellos that I didn't really want it, but my brother got buizel and i didn't want to copy his crew so i caught the shellos(Blue). I soon got a riolu(very useful) and snover(didn't want it, but needed a grass/ice pokemon). I then caught dialga(used only in the e4).

When I finished the game my roster was:
Infernape
Staraptor
Lucario
Dialga
Abomasnow
Gastrodon

I put it in the order of my favorite.

When I first started with Diamond, I picked Piplup (mostly because it was cute and I didn't know what his final evo was), caught shinx, starly, and bidoof. Decided bidoof looked ridiculous and relegated him to HM slave pretty early. I think I went with a shellos and bronzor, and left the final spot for another HM slave after that.

Yeah, not awesome type coverage, but it got me through the game ok.

<.< On plat, I switched to Chimchar, budew, shinx, ralts, and gabite, with a Manaphy off and on.

Starters and unexpected evos (read: Staraptor) aside, I never use fighting Pokes. My least favorite type, for some reason.

In platinum my stratagy was a little different, I wanted to train the eeveelutions so I transfered it my baby eevees from diamond into platinum. I only transfered in four, because I had 3 of them already. I also started with turtwig and a prinplup that I got off of gts. I didn't change my crew at all this time even though I wanted to.
I finished platinum with only six pokemon, I didn't catch anything else except giratina(didn't use even once).
Flareon
Jolteon
Glaceon
Leafeon
Empoleon
Torterra

I was so impressed with platinum that I wanted to play it again with diffferent pokemon(that I would have probably never trained).
My crew this time consisted of:
Honchcrow
Tangagrowth
Yanmega
Magmortar
Vespiquen
Omastar(transfered in)

Ahh yeah... Let's see. Diamond, I started with Chimchar, caught a Starly and a Bidoof (which was Boxed) and things just went from there. The Riolu egg was the next big thing in my team. Then I started using the GTS and picked up a Skorupi, a Gible, and a Torterra and raised them.

Final Diamond Team:

Infernape
Staraptor
Lucario
Drapion
Garchomp
Torterra

Then Platinum I started with Turtwig and caught a Starly and a Bidoof again (both were Boxed). Then I caught a Zubat, which I kept. A while later I caught a Rhyhorn and raised it. Then I decided I wanted to use the Platinum forms and used Skymin and Giratina. The team was rounded out by a Weavile that I boxed, along with Shaymin, after the League.

Final Platinum Team:

Torterra
Crobat
Rhyperior
Giratina
Shaymin (now boxed)
Weavile (now boxed)

I always chose the Water starter, so Piplup for me. That Starly looked pretty cool, so I caught it. Oh, and a Shinx. Let's catch that too. Hmm? A Machop? A Geodude? Sure! Nah, I don't need that Machop. Ooh! Look at that! A Prinplup! Ooh! Now a Staravia? Eh? A Shinx? What are you talking about? Oh look a grass gym. Oh look I OHKOed everyone with Staravia. Ooh! a Meditite! I always wanted to raise one. Whoa! Staravia evolved and whomped that fighting gym! Ooh. This Water gym is tough. Ah well, might as well raise this Geodude. Ooh! A Graveler! Now it's a Golem! Oh! A Roselia! Let's catch it! ...Nah. I'll just raise this Shinx I randomly have in my party. Ooh! A Luxray! Now, let's sweep... Yeah! Luxray, report to the Ghost gym! Hoo yeah! Go, new Empoleon, Golem, and Medicham! Kill this Steel Gym! Medicham! Fire Punch! Psychic! HIGH JUMP KICK! To Snowpoint City we go! Ooh, that Snover looks tough! Let's raise it! Now, let's give it TMs Ice Beam and Avalanche for no reason! Ooh! Dialga! *master ball* Golem! Wipe the floor with this Electric gym! Yeah...to the Pokemon League we go...oh wait this is tough. Um, Dialga...*throws into GTS* *gets a Lv. 100 Bronzong* Yeah! *wins*

My first D/P/Pt game was Pearl, even though I liked the looks of Dialga better (but my brother claimed Diamond before, so I dealt with it).

Let's see... I finally got it around the time Ash got his Chimchar in the anime, and seing the episode he was released in was the catalyst in my choosing Chimchar for my starter.

So, I got Chimchar (Pyro), and quickly caught a Budew (Aphrodite). Pyro evolved directly after the Gym battle (a trend the occurred for most of the odd numbered Gyms).

Then I caught a Misdreavus (Siren) and soon after a Chingling (Hermes).

Soon after Aphrodite evolved into Roselia, and after that I caught an Eastern Shellos (Apollo).

Soon after that, Hermes evolved into Chimecho, and Apollo evolved into Gastrodon.

Then Pyro evoled into Infernape, and I caught a Sneasel (Minerva).

Then I evolved Aphrodite, Siren, and Minerva into Roserade, Mismagius, and Weavile respectively.

So, my team was:

Infernape
Roserade
Mismagius
Chimecho
Gastrodon
Weavile

I remember wishing I had been able to get a Honchkrow or an Eeveelution in this game.

But now I have the national dex, my team changed. I now have.

Meganium.
Vaporeon.
Jolteon.
Ninetales.

Holy hell, I dont think I can even remember that far. I think I used a Piplup, Starly, Shinx, Gible?, Dialga, and some other stuff. I totally forgot my first walk through team. My second team was Infernape, Lopunny, Octillery, Staraptor, Luxray, and something else I dont remember. Hehe... sorry.
My 3rd and FINAL walkthrough team is Empoleon (1), Staraptor(2), Luxray(3), Drapion(5), Machamp(6), and Alakazam(4). I tell ya', Alakazam is a hella pain to train as an Abra, but it is sooo worth it.

First Pearl team. HM slaves not taken in account.

Piplup>Prinplup>Empoleon.
Budew>Roselia>Roserade.
Starly>Staravia>Staraptor.
Misdreavus>Mismagius.
Mesprit (Soft-resetting+EV training).
Palkia (Soft-resetting+EV training).

When I was able to migrate I immediately migrated over my best Pokémon ever: Competitive (Perfect IVs, EV trained, right nature, 100% legal) Milotic (which was my first competitive Pokémon ever, back in 2003). That should be noted, because it costed Empoleon its team spot.

Milotic

Heh...I started with Chimchar.
It was just so darn cute dancing and jumping ther :3
Not so long after that, I cath'd bidoof, starly and magikarp.
In the end I finished the pokemon league using nothing else in the game then chimchar and magikarp.
The other four members in my party were always: "just in case" -types...
Anyway, when I beated the league for the first time, my team was someething this:
Infernape - Lv 81
Gyarados - Lv 82
--- "Just in case" -pkm:s ---
Gabite - Lv 41 (Gaught in victry road since it looked cool...Never used in i the league though..)
Staraptor - Lv 38 (Gaught in Sendoff Spring)
Bibarel - Lv 18 (HM slave for Rock Climb, Rock Smash, Waterfall)
Scyhter - Lv 20 (HM slave for Defog and Cut.)

As you can see, my team literally was only two bad boys :D

~
Nowdays I actually have two teams.
One main team and the other that has some other guys that I switch to main team in special cases.
You could say they're like supporters or something like that...
Anyway...

Main team:
- Gallade ~ Lv 71
- Garchomp ~ Lv 72
- Tyranitar ~ Lv 73
- Dragonite ~ Lv 73
- Gyarados ~ Lv 82
-Infernape ~ Lv 81

The other team (Still in training, but whatever)
- Absol ~ Lv 31
- Lucario ~ Lv 51
- Snorlax ~ Lv 33 (I was so happy when i found that Munchlax in the tree ^^)
- Crobat ~ Lv 23
- Alakazam ~ Lv 41 (migrated from sapphire...And I actually don't know where I got this in the first place...)
- Swampert ~ Lv 100 (from sapphire ^^)

Yeah...

Woahhh, this takes me way back... the first team in my Hall of Fame is as follows:
Honchkrow(BigBoss)- lv.54
Empoleon(Jetray)- lv.54
Steelix(Metal)- lv.53
Uxie(Squint)- lv.54
Dialga(GWAR)- lv.52
Azelf(Elf)- lv.57

I'm still not completely sure how I beat the E4 with this team... b/c look at what happened with the next Hall of Fame team:
Blastoise(Bob)- lv.86
Empoleon(Jetray)- lv.58
Blastoise(Bobbi)- lv.68
Heatran(Blaster)- lv.71
Giratina(Giratina)- lv.72
Honchkrow(BigBoss)- lv.57

14th October 2009, 10:52 PM
Well....Lemme think, my game was Platinum.. And my first team before re-building was...

Empoleon, Staraptor, Luxray, Lucario, Gardevoir and Haunter. The lowest level was Staraptor at level 58 and the highest was Empoleon at level 69. The teams average was roughly about level 64-ish. The Captains of the team was Lucario and Empoleon. Assistant Captain was Luxray...

They were good i admit, until we reached the E4, then things went completely downhill after getting pass the Victory Road Cave. Then after realising that the E4 would be much harder i decided to rebuild.

And also another reason i changed the team was because i was 2-3 in the link battling too =\

By the time I reached the elite 4 on Diamond:

Empoleon
Rampardos
Machamp
Spiritomb
Glaceon
Bibarel (HM slave)

Aside from having already decided on having a Spiritomb, I basically just chose what looked cool and caught them as early as possible.

On Platinum:

Infernape
Ninetales
Arcanine
Magmortar
Flareon
Camerupt

Traded over the eggs from Diamond.

My first teams were all pretty unoriginal.

On pearl I used:
Empoleon
Torterra (got over GTS)
Staraptor
Luxray
Rapidash
Bibarel (HM Slave) (replaced with Palkia before E4)

On diamond I used:
Torterra
Gyarados
Staraptor
Luxray
Rapidash
Bibarel (HM Slave) (which I later replaced with Lucario before going onto the E4)

Then on platinum, I got a bit more original (slightly), and give them nicknames! *cue stream of WTFs*
They were:
Oceanera the Empoleon
Hawkeye the Staraptor
Celestia the Gardevoir
Shadowburn the Houndoom (ever so original)
Voltia the Jolteon
Chillwind the Froslass

My teams get originality post E4 usually.

Im proud to say i never used a full 6 the entire game i kinda got bored with my first 2 and decided wait in platinum i need 3 pokemon for the frontier so i quickly caught a third and beat the elite 4 first time around without one KO caused by the enamy(I kinda KO'd my own)

Rapidash
Golduck
Tangrowth

Originally it started out with just Ponyta and Psyduck(ditched my starter as soon as i could) but added in tangala for the sole purpose of the frontier I didn't want to but it had to be done
