View Full Version : RMT - Black in-game

15th January 2011, 5:37 AM
I’m using the newly leaked English names. They’re posted in the order that they are obtained in-game. The team has a focus on offense and I am unashamed at having gone for cool looking Pokémon (not a cute one in sight!). I also want to run the HMs on the team (i.e. no slot wasted with a HM slave). The natures are what I hope to find in-game.

Samurott (Water) #503 aka Diakenki.

Nature = Modest preferred, Timid or Calm (and poss. Bold if I get frustrated w. soft resets).

Water Gun > Shell Blade > TM13 Ice Beam or TM12 Taunt
HM03 Surf
Revenge > Dragon Tail
Substitute or Swords Dance (I haven’t decided yet)

IMO the best of the starters and with good Sp. Att. is an obvious choice for Surf.

Excadrill (Ground/Steel) #530 aka Doryuzu

Nature = Adamant preferred over Jolly.
Ability = either Sand Rush or Sand Force both are good.

Mud Slap > Dig > Earthquake
Metal Claw or Sandstorm
Rock Slide
Cut (HM Slave use) or Sandstorm

Excadrill does not get any powerful Steel attacking moves - Metal Claw (pwr =50) is the only option!

Scrafty Dark/Fighting #560 (Unova #066) aka Zuruzukin

Nature = Adamant (Mild or Rash less preferred, Jolly is pointless)
Ability = Moxie preferred over Shed Skin.

Low Kick > Brick Break
Payback > Crunch
TM46 Thief
HM04 Strength

Low speed, but I like the type combo

Sigilyph (Flying/Psychic) #561 aka Shinbora

Nature = Modest or Timid
Ability = Magic Guard preferred but Miracle Skin also OK

Psybeam > Psychic or TM03 Pyscho Schock
Air Cutter > Air Slash or Hypnosis
TM13 Ice Beam
HM02 Fly

I was going to go with 567 Archeos (aka Aakeosu) as my Flying type until I saw its [dis]ability.

Galvantula (Bug/Electric) #596 aka Denchura

Nature = Modest or Timid
Ability = Compound eyes (increases Thunder’s accuracy) not Tension

Bug Bite > Signal Beam > Bug Buzz
ElecNet > Discharge > TM24 Thunderbolt or TM25 Thunder
Energy Ball
TM06 Toxic

NB - Thunderbolt is not available until well after E4 (Route 17). Very good type combo. IMO clearly the best electric type in BW (the others all have issues such as being Physical Attackers with crummy moves). Will use a Blitzle in the interim until Galavatia is obtainable.

Haxorus (Dragon) #612 aka Ononokus

Nature = Adamant or Jolly
Ability = Mold Breaker (not Rivalry)

Dual Chop > Dragon Claw or possibly Outrage (@ Lum Berry)
False Swipe (Legendary Catcher ...)
Dragon Dance > Swords Dance
Taunt or Shadow Claw (can't decide yet)

This generation’s Garchomp. Cool and a must have for me.

What do you think?

too much info xD
We knew Fly is a HM02, for example. You don't have to say that xD
And their obtained location is definitely not needed :)

If you're going with a -Attack Nature, then don't go Swords Dance on Daikenki...

Modest Nature
~Ice Beam
~Air Slash/Hidden Power [preferably Ground or Dragon, but anything other than Water/Ice/Grass/Poison/Steel works too]
~Grass Knot

note that Air Slash requires breeding, so I list HP as an alternative.

Jolly Nature
~Earthquake/Drill Liner
~Rock Slide/Stone Edge
~Return/Aerial Ace

EQ hurts your teammate is Double/Triple battles (not sure about Rotation) so Drill Liner is an option.

Timid Nature, Compoundeyes ability
~Bug Buzz
~Energy Ball
~Toxic/Spider Web/Hidden Power [anything not Bug/Electric/Poison/Grass/Steel]

Adamant/Jolly Nature, Mold Breaker ability
~Dragon Dance
~Dragon Claw
~Rock Slide

-Bulk Up
-Hi Jump Kick
-Rock Slide

Bulk Up gets even more power behind the ridiculously powerful Hi Jump Kick, now 130 power. Rock Slide covers Flying types like Barujina that would otherwise wall you. You won't need HMs througout Black and White except for one Cut tree after Gym 1 and moving Strength boulders to get items you don't need or will use. Fly and Surf are the only HMs that get enough use to get a spot on the team this gen.

Shinpora@Wise Glasses
-Psycho Shock
-Ice Beam/Energy Ball
-Hypnosis/Thunder Wave/Shadow Ball/Air Slash

If only pokemon could have 6 moveslots. Then this could use four attacks status and Fly. *sigh*

Shine got the rest, really. Only post the pokemon's final moveset so no-one gest information overload.
