View Full Version : Rate My Team (Assistance would be nice)

22nd July 2011, 12:06 AM
So, in replaying Soul Silver i have decided to plan out a team and do what i can to balance it for potential competeitive play. Note that this is my first attempt and i am a bit lost on movesets.







Note that all are subject to change. I'm a bit behind, as i haven't played through D/P or B/W yet so any criticisms or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Arcanine@Life Orb/Expert Belt (If items is a prob)
EVs: 252 Spd 200 Atk 56 SpAtk
Nature: Hasty
Ability: Intimidate
Extreme Speed
Thunder Fang
Flare Blitz

Physical Arcanine with Overheat. Pretty basic, with Overheat to take out Physically bulky Pokemon, or hit hard in general.

Empoleon@Life Orb
EVs: 252 SpAtk 252 Spd 4 HP
Nature: Modest
Surf/Hydro Pump
Ice Beam
Grass Knot/HP Ground

After using Agility, Empoleon can become a very fast special sweeper, capable of taking out teams. A very good late-game sweeper and a great addition to a sweeping team.

Dragonite@Life Orb/Leftovers
EVs: 252 Atk 252 Spd 4 HP
Nature: Adamant
Dragon Dance
Dragon Claw/Outrage
Fire Punch/Roost

Powerful DDer, some EVs could be placed in bulk if wanted. Dragon Dance is great on Dragonite, with the moves giving STAB, and good coverage (mainly against Steels). Roost could be used to make him bulkier, while the EVs could be changed.

EVs: 252 Atk 252 HP 4 SpDef
Nature: Adamant
Meteor Mash
Explosion/Bullet Punch
Stealth Rocks

Metagross sets out Stealth Rocks and can take some hits, while also dealing major damage. Explosion is basically a 1HKO on most of the game, but can be bad if a ghost switches in. Bullet Punch can really hurt guys like Aerodactyl and Gengar, Earthquake backs up.

Mamoswine@Choice Band
EVs: 252 Atk 252 Spd 4 HP
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Doesn't Matter
Ice Shard
Stone Edge

Very common set, but for a good reason. Ice Shard murders Dragons, Earthquake is deadly STAB, Stone Edge is mainly for a filler, and Superpower hurts quite a few types.

Shiftry@Choice Scarf
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SpAtk 252 Spd 4 HP
Ability: Chlorophyll
Leaf Storm
Focus Blast
HP Ice/Ground
Dark Pulse

Basically, a good revenge killer. He can be fast and decently powerful, but Shiftry isn't a great Pokemon, there are many better Grass types such as Sceptile (faster and more SpAtk) and good bulky ones. Ignoring that fact, the moves can kill most weakened Pokemon and Shiftry can be deadly.

By the way, this is gonna get locked.

You might want to read the rules (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=86621) before you make any more posts. If you can, you should edit your post before a mod closes this.
