DON'T USE SMILIES TO REPRESENT POKEMON. IT ATTACKS OUR SANITY.

I had to get that out.

Sceptile: Solarbeam, Giga Drain, Double-Edge, False Swipe

Wow does that set suck.

Leaf Blade
Thunderpunch
HP Ice
Brick Break

Normally the last slot would be Focus Punch, but prediction doesn't work well in BF.

Venusaur: Frenzy Plant, Solarbeam, Giga Drain, Bullet Seed

You need a revamp.

Razor Leaf
Leech Seed
HP Fire
Sleep Powder

It will work well against Lucy.

Rayquaza: Fly, Extremespeed, Dragon Claw, Hyper Beam

That just scared me.

Dragon Dance
HP Flying
Earthquake
Rock Slide

It's a nice copy of DDmence.

Pidgeot: Fly, Wing Attack, Featherdance, Quick Attack

You lack a set here. That's why we RMTers are here to help.

HP Flying
Return
Steel Wing
Quick Attack

QA will actually come in handy in a handful of situations.

Articuno: Blizzard, Agility, Ice Beam, Mind Reader

Meh, Articuno has no real set anyways.

Moltres: Overheat, Endure, Agility, Flamethrower

What's with both Overheat and Flamethrower on the same set?

Sunny Day
Flamethrower
HP Electric
Agility

Moltres is a good Sunny Dayer.

Latias: Thunder, Mist Ball, Psychic, Refresh

"We need the cleanup crew in Aisle 9..."

Safeguard
Calm Mind
Dragon Claw
Thunderbolt

It's not that hard.

And yet, I only ever battle Pike Queen Lucy (but I'm 7 wins away from battling Factory Head Noland...)

There are too many flying types in there...you should have a more balanced type range on your team....my seggestion is get some Electric types...Water(or ice)...Fire... I know you have those but without the flying type in them....

Well I got Sceptile and Venusaur up to Level 100 but did not change their movesets. Oh well they kick ***** anyway. Articuno accidently grew (is that possible?) to Lvl. 51, eliminating it from my team. (BTW I don't want to wait 4 Sheer Cold and its probability is too low for the BF anyway) Moltres is alright and the reason it has both Overheat and Flamethrower is 2-fold:

1. Moltres has Fire Spin when you catch it. What a pathetic move! I saved Overheat to replace that so I have 2 powerful attacks from Moltres! A 1-2 punch if you ask me!

2. When you NEED the extra power for 1 shot that HAS TO COUNT, Overheat does the trick (i.e. a Milotic with just a few more HPs than Flamethrower can take off– I found that out the hard way >_<)

Thanks for the advice, but the Elemental Hyper Beams are unique to the 3rd gen. games and I wanted to see them in action!

On the bright side, you may have noticed that I actually did manage to defeat Lucy. After losing Articuno I trained my Swampert up to Lvl. 50 and, with only 89 EXP. left before Lvl. 51, I took it to the Battle Frontier. Before you go critiquing its moves, note that Muddy Water took care of Shuckle, and a critical Earthquake move knocked out Milotic, giving me the victory!!!! (Seviper is a pushover:))

;260; Swampert: Muddy Water, Earthquake (TM), Dive, Mud Shot

Yeah, Mud Shot's whimpy, but I'm waiting for a better move. Any suggestions? (Peferably a Ground-type move to match)

I lost a chance at Noland with only 2 wins to go but I am currently on the brink of a 3rd run-through at the Pyramid and a shot a Pyramid King Brandon with the same team (Swampert, Moltres, and Latias). Wish me luck!

What if you need it for more than 1 shot? Or are short on options because you wasted 2 move slots on 2 same-type moves? Your logic fails.

Thanks for the advice, but the Elemental Hyper Beams are unique to the 3rd gen. games and I wanted to see them in action!

Oh! That's okay then! Use them once, gasp in awe, then replace them. :/

and a critical Earthquake move knocked out Milotic, giving me the victory!!!!
HAX! HAX!

Ice beam. Surf over dive, curse over muddy water.

Swampert originally had Surf and Muddy Water. Both have the same power and only differ in accuracy. Besides, I have 4 Pokémon with Surf already. 5 is just overkill and only Swampert learns Muddy Water.

Moltres starts with Flamethrower. It was already there– I just left it!

I have never seen Razor Leaf knock out Mewtwo in 1 hit like Frenzy Plant. Nyah.

Ice beam. To replace Mud Shot? When did Ice Beam ever knock out a Lvl. 50 Seviper in 1 shot?
Curse over muddy water. WTF? I am an attack person! I can't leave myself open for 1 round! Besides, my Swampert has pathetic speed thanks to its nature– I can't risk it!

Surf>Muddy water. We came to rate your team, not to give your pokes cool-looking attacks.

Moltres starts with Flamethrower. It was already there– I just left it!
Get rid of overheat then. 2 same type attacks is "just overkill", as you would say.

I have never seen Razor Leaf knock out Mewtwo in 1 hit like Frenzy Plant. Nyah.
Says the person who's fool enough to face a poison type off against a mewtwo. :/

Ice beam. To replace Mud Shot? When did Ice Beam ever knock out a Lvl. 50 Seviper in 1 shot?
You have earthquake.

Curse over muddy water. WTF? I am an attack person! I can't leave myself open for 1 round! Besides, my Swampert has pathetic speed thanks to its nature– I can't risk it!
You have surf, no need for muddy water. If it's speed is bad, all the better- let it keep falling lower. Stop complaining!

......Pok&#232;mon is not for cool looks, when you battle it's for damage, hyper beam type attacks leave yourself open for one turn.Yer, you take looks over damage n some cases, thats a VERY bad thing in Pok&#232;mon.

Hyper beam type attacks suck unless you use them wisely.

Hyper Beam-like attacks suck. Period.

Diljabar, an all-out attack strategy does not work. You should download and play Netbattle to find out why that doesn't work. You'll eventually find out... the hard way.
