Cant wait for Spring! Here's what i've decided so far for Pokemon White! No Dream World abilities or egg moves please! No Event pokemon! And no EVs aswell. In ingame, i dont care about those things. However, natures and to some extent, IVs are things i pay attention to. I havent given any items, as i have little knowledge about the new items available. So i need help on that one too.

Daikenki(Adamant Nature)
Torrent

Swords Dance
Waterfall
Megahorn
Aerial Ace

I think Daikenki's special moves are quite shallow. I'm not sure if this physical set is better than its special set(because hidden power is uncertain). His attack stat is only 8 points lower.

Doryuuzu(Adamant Nature)
Sand Throw

Swords Dance
Earthquake/Drill Liner
Shadow Claw
Rock Slide

I fell in love with Doryuuzu, ages before it was revealed and declared the most potent threat of 5th gen. In that tiny video, i first saw it(the one with ononokusu, desukan and denchura) and i loved it. Still dont know what to do with Earthquake and Drill Liner....

Sazando(Modest Nature)
Levitate

Dragon Pulse
Flamethrower
Surf
Focus Blast

Sazando is awesome, but i dont know if i should use it as a pure special sweeper or a mixed sweeper. Its my Surfer aswell and is the reason it got the preference over Ononokusu.

Zekrom(Adamant Nature)
Terra Voltage

Cross Thunder
Stone Edge
Dragon Claw
Fly

He is just....amazing. Dual STAB. Serves as a Flier aswell!

Shanderaa(Modest Nature)
Flame Body

Calm Mind
Shadow Ball
Flamethrower
Energy Ball

This is just too awesome. People know the set by heart by now. Quite frail though imo, but his legendary sp.attack takes care of that!

Terrakion(Adamant nature)
Heart of Justice

Swords Dance(i know, i have a lot of swords dancers)
Sacred Sword
Stone Edge
X Scissor/Aerial Ace/Strength

X Scissor takes care of pesky grass and psychics, while Aerial Ace takes care of grass and fighting types. X Scissor has better power but Aerial Ace never misses. If both the moves are probably not very important, Strength can be considered as filler and for ingame purposes. Otherwise dual STAB which hits everything for super effective or neutral damage. After a SD, Terrakion is a friggin beast with its high speed.

Any suggestions?

For Doryuuzu, go with Rock Slide and Shadow Claw for the last two moves. Strength is beaten by Return in terms of power (80 against 102), and you won't need Strength anymore after you've dropped down all the rocks down the hole as they remains permanently there. Poison as a type has bad coverage, so no to Poison Jab, not to mention it doesn't even gain STAB. Rock Slide on the other hand, gives great coverage with Earthquake/Drill Liner. Shadow Claw takes out things that resists the Rock + Ground combo.

For Zekrom, go with Cross Thunder. You rarely needs more than 8 PP anyway, with such a powerful attack on such a powerful Pokemon xD
Besides, Wild Bolt's recoil can get annoying sometimes.

For Shanderaa, go with Energy Ball for the last move. Psychic's coverage as a type isn't that good and it doesn't gain STAB. Furthermore, EB is a better option, taking out Waters, Rocks, and Grounds (hint : all those three are Shanderaa's weaknesses)

Thanks! I forgot Doryuuzu gets Rock Slide actually!

Updated front page. I now have my 6th pokemon, Terrakion. Please comment and see how i can improve the team further, and what items will be best.
