View Full Version : The Elite 4 challenge First run-through
4th November 2009, 12:45 AM
Well this thread is here because I recently purchased Platinum, and I was kinda lazy in the whole catching part of the game, but i managed to do surprisingly well, and I'm just about to challenge the Elite Four for the first time on this game. But getting back on topic this post is solely dedicated to the Pokemon team you used on your first run-through of the Elite Four or your favorite.
Please Note that this is not a team rate page and it's only purpose is to be a place to share your first/favorite Elite Four Team
For my first run-through I used(Yes Only Three it's not a typo so don't post saying it is(someone is bound to do so anyway)):
Lvl 52 TANGROWTH;465;(lvl 55 Aw)(Aw meaning after win)
-Nature Bashful/Item Big Root
Lvl 55 GOLDUCK;055;(lvl 57 Aw)
-Nature Quirky/Item Mind Plate
Lvl 57 Rapidash;078;(Lvl 60 Aw)
-Nature Naive/Item Sitrus Berry
Just as an added Note my first play-through I won with only one teammate feinting(self-induced)

I don't remember the movesets in my first try, but these are the pokemon:
(NOTE: Some of the pokemon are from my pearl game, but I trained them at a low lvl in platinum)
Togekiss lvl 52
Gallade lvl 54
Gyarados lvl 52
Infernape lvl 57
Electivire lvl 56
Metagros lvl 54
And I'm proud to add that I didn't lose a single pokemon while challenging the Elite 4, every pokemon fought on it's own against each member of the elite 4.
I only lost my metagross against Cynthia by using Explosion on her Garchomp ^^
These are the match-ups (I think)
Togekiss vs Aron
Gyarados vs Bertha
Electivire vs Flint
Gallade vs Lucian
Everyone fought against Cynthia if I'm right.

My very first team was really lulz, from diamond:
Pachirisu Lv.55 (Meant to be "Pick-up" slave)
Crobat Lv. 57
Murkrow Lv. 62
I still won though, but not without 99 revives and hyper potions.

My favourite E4 team was the team that beat the E4 for the first time in Diamond. The funny part is that this team is almost Cynthia's team (except with different attacks and no Gastrodon). The Pokemon had max EV's too, though I'm not a picky EV trainer.
;448; Zorro (male Lucario, level 60)
Lax nature (highly curious)
*Zorro was a good help in some tight spots, sweeping away two of Flint's Pokemon and helping against Cynthia's troublesome Water Pokemon.
;350; Dreamboat (male Milotic, level 61)
Modest nature (alert to sounds)
Ability: Marvel Scale
*Finished off Bertha's Hippowdon and Golem, and Flint's Rapidash despite Sunny Day. Although he chickened out in the end by switching, he did a lot of damage to Cynthia's Garchomp.
;442; Morticia (female Spiritomb, level 61)
Quiet nature (likes to relax)
*Owned Lucian's Pokemon, making the battle the easiest of the five. She also put up a good fight against Cynthia's Milotic.
;445; Saphira (female Garchomp, level 60)
Relaxed nature (quick tempered)
Ability: Sand Veil
*Bravely fought Aaron's Drapion and Beautifly despite being poisoned. She also finished off Flint's Infernape and Cynthia's Gastrodon when other Pokemon failed to do the job.
;038; Shin (male Ninetales, level 61)
Hasty nature (capable of taking hits)
Ability: Flash Fire
*He took the stage first, OHKOing Aaron's first three Pokemon. Unfortunately, he didn't do much else; he got KO'd after doing some damage to Flint's Infernape, and didn't participate at all in the battle with Cynthia.
;407; TuxedoMask (male Roserade, level 61)
Hardy nature (strong willed)
*Clearly my best Pokemon in these battles. He swept away Bertha's first three Pokemon, and Cynthia's as well. He also dealt the last blow, finishing off Cynthia's Garchomp after surviving a Giga Impact.
