This is my newest planned team for either White Version or the planned third version, whichever I get to first. The only Pokemon that I might potentially use egg moves on is Hydreigion, which I might trade over from my Black. So please don't suggest egg moves (except on Deino) or Dream World abilities.

Everything looks good

Galvantula for the last move i would go with Thunder Wave for stall


Golurk since your going with Iron First Hammer Arm > Dynamic Punch( really low accurancy)

The team looks great but ill put some suggestions:

I would go Wild Bolt on Emboar plus the Reckless Ability (if you want to do DW)

Simisage looks good

Jellicent looks good (as a sweeper)

Id go TWave on Galvantula

Either Hammer Arm or Brick Break instead of Dynamic Punch on Golurk

Hydregion looks good

Emboar
-Blaze-
-Flare Blitz
-Hammer Arm
-Wild Charge/Head Smash
-Scald

Nice and functional but pretty imperfect. I would not recommend Head Smash, despite its power. Half damage recoil can be pretty painful if you can't deal with it. Wild Charge is much better, in my opinion, and it covers water-types reasonably well. In fact, this whole set covers a lot of types in general and uses mostly great attacks. I might recommend a replacement for Flare Blitz because that's a lot of recoil on one guy, but I just don't like recoil in general.

Simisage
-Gluttony-
-Seed Bomb
-Brick Break
-Rock Slide
-Shadow Claw

I am really inclined to say Energy Ball over Seed Bomb, but that would depend heavily on Simisage's nature. I'm just going to assume for now that you have a fully neutral nature for him/her. Energy Ball has a useful secondary effect, and if he has good Sp. Atk, it's more useful than Seed Bomb if PP isn't an issue. I'd still recommend Brick Break over Focus Blast, though, for BB's perfect accuracy and still good power. Frankly, 70% accuracy is crap for a five-PP move. Rock Slide is good specialization, and Shadow Claw is decent at the least. Its high crit rate probably justifies using it over Crunch, which will deal double damage against basically all the same opponents. Normal-types being immune to it are no problem with Brick Break, thankfully.

Jellicent
-Water Absorb-
-Surf
-Shadow Ball
-Ice Beam
-Recover

I'm inclined to prefer Cursed Body to Water Absorb, but I think either could be run just as well. I usually don't find myself using Recover when I run it, so maybe a replacement is in order. Maybe Psychic is a good idea here?


http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/596.png
Galvantula
-Compoundeyes-
-Thunder
-Bug Buzz
-Energy Ball
-Volt Change/Charge Beam

Replace Thunder with Thunderbolt. (edit: disregard to taste) From there, there is no reason to use Volt Switch or Charge Beam. I recommend instead using Thunder Wave, as repeatedly suggested. Unnerve might be better than Compoundeyes as an ability, depending on what you fight with it.


http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/623.png
Golurk
-Iron Fist-
-Shadow Punch
-Dynamicpunch
-Stone Edge
-Earthquake

Dynamicpunch is awful and should never be used unless you can make it a guaranteed hit. Hammer Arm is a better idea, as many have suggested. Otherwise, this set looks basically pretty good.


http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/635.png
Hydreigon
-Levitate-
-Dragon Pulse
-Flamethrower
-Surf
-Dark Pulse/Crunch

You seem to be following a general theme with the skills, and it's a damn good one -- special attacks are highly recommended, since Hydreigon has better Special Attack than Physical Attack. Breed Dark Pulse onto a baby Deino and raise it up to Hydreigon.

Overall, a good team, but some of it could be sharpened a little -- as is usually the case. A lot of this is just sort of a "tweak this to taste" thing, so don't take it as binding.

Sorry, but despite the benefits, I'm not using Dream World abilities. So here is basically what I've picked up:

Wild Charge over Head Smash for Emboar, and perhaps Heat Crash over Flare Blitz?

Possibly Energy Ball over Seed Bomb on Simisage.

Hammer Arm over Dynamicpunch on Golurk.

And Dark Pulse over Crunch on Hydreigon.

Yeah, I didn't even mention Dream World abilities for that reason. I'm pretty sure US players can't even get to the Dream World yet. DAMN IT! Basically, as far as Energy Ball vs. Seed Bomb, this depends entirely on your Pokemon's stats. Energy Ball has a bonus effect and -5 PP compared to Seed Bomb, but they're basically Physical and Special versions of the same attack when all is said and done. This might mean you may need some careful EV training.

Flamethrower instead of Flare Blitz can be used for Emboar - it seems the Nature does not interfere with its Special Attack anyway, as you also have Scald on it.

What would a good fourth move for Galvantula be? I was thinking Charge Beam as a way of raising Spec. Atk, but apparently, that's not a good idea, and it seems a waste to use Thunder Wave when Thunder has a relatively good chance of paralysis. The main ones I've been considering are Gastro Acid, Sucker Punch, Toxic, and Poison Jab, but I don't know if any of those would be smart choices or not. Thoughts?

Gastro Acid and Toxic would be fine either way. Poison Jab could be good, but is probably not recommended because Galvantula's physical attack stat is weaker than its special attack, and a special skill could easily be locked in there, I'm sure. I'd pick Toxic over Gastro Acid, though, unless abilities are really a huge probably. Very situational in general, I guess...

Thanks, I'll probably go with Toxic.
