Hey,

I just got Emerald and am trying to build a team for emerald to beat the Battle Frontier. (or give it a try at least hehe)

So far I got these 2 pokemon

Kadabra - Modest @ Lum

Psychic
Tunder Punch
Calm Mind
Recover

Salamence - Adament @ Leftovers

Earthquake
Aerial Ace
Brick Break
Dragon Dance



ok so I'd need a 3rd pokemon to complement this team... I'm just looking for some suggestions. Also, the pokemon must be obtainable in Emerald, cuz i cant trade (hence Kadabra instead of Zam).
Also, is there a decent pokemon which learn a dark move like crunch or bite a grass move and ice beam ? (so my 3 pokemon cover every single type) (grass isnt needed but itd be nice..)

Any suggestions for either of the pokemon im looking for ?

Thanks a lot !

If you can't trade for Zam then Gardy is the obvious choice.

For a third, I'd use Swampert.

Ah there we go

Thanks Omastar, exactly what I was thinking about...

ok so I came off with these 3 now.

Kadabra - Modest @ Lum

Psychic
Tunder Punch
Ice Punch
Calm Mind


Salamence - Adament @ Leftovers

Earthquake
Aerial Ace
Rock Slide
Dragon Dance

Houndoom - Modest @ (uh i dunno, i gotta use a different item than sala for BF right ?)

Flame Blast
Crunch
Sunny Day
Solarbeam

well its what I came up with.
It's pretty straight forward, but then its only for BF and the stupid cpu always uses stupid move and wins with hax...

4 question remains tho : Was removing Recover from zam a good idea ? I mean it cant really recover more dmg than it take...

Was the sunny day/solar beam combo a good idea at all on houndoom ?

What item should I give my Houndoom ?

Since grass sucks against pretty much everything, I was thinking maybe Flame Blast / Crunch / Wow / ??? im missing a last move tho... suggestions ?

Thanks a lot for sharing your expertise with me hehe

For the Houndoom I'd go with this

Houndoom@leftovers
nature-timid(as many people would suggest)
moveset
Flamethrower
Crunch
Sunny Day
Solar Beam

Just a basic special sweeper

houndoom shouldn't be sunnybeaming due to the fact that you will get ko'd by the time you've set up sunny day

well yeah I agree about the sunny beamer being a bad idea about houdoom, but do you have any replacement ideas please ?

No you shouldn't have two of the same type moves. Go with what 0masar suggested,

Houndoom@leftovers
Timid
-Crunch
-Fire Blast/ Flamethrower
-HP: Grass/Pursuit
-Will-O-Wisp

do you want EV spreads?

btw crunch/pursuit is an exception to the 'don't double up on moves' thing as you are only using pursuit to catch something switching out

i.e

houndoom switches into celebi on the psychic
celebi will obviously switch out, otherwise it faces a fire blast
you use pursuit, 60%~ damage

yeah but things dont switch out in the BF... so... i would try go with sub? taunt? yeah... pursuit is almost useless in the BF

and its not like you're gonna get HP grass anytime soon with 70 base power

yes good point by pureheart...

finding a filler for that houndoom is much more complicated than i first thought.... i mean he doesnt even learn another special move. cant pull off miracles here... maybe attract ? lol..

Flame Thrower
Crunch
Wow
Attract ?


but im still open to suggestions
