View Full Version : Rate me!

Hi I'm pretty new to pokemon since I have only had Emerald for about 2 months or so but I wanted to know if you guys could rate my team I'm training :)
Ok here we go:
1. Sceptile, Lvl 76 Moves:Pound, Cut, Leaf Blade and Absorb
2. Rayquaza, Lvl 77 Moves:Hyper Beam, Outrage, Fly and Extremespeed (I'd like to replace him with one I have personally raised, once I raise a pokemon high enough to be a suitable replacement)
3. Whiscash , Lvl 40 Moves:Magnitude, Earthquake, Rest and Snore (I'm aiming for fissure and I'd like to get him to lvl 70 at least)
4. Machoke, Lvl 61 Moves: Focus Punch (TM) Dynamic Punch, Karate Chop and Seismic Toss (I'd like for him to be lvl 70+)
5. Altaria, Lvl 37 Moves: Sing, Fly, Growl and Fury Attack (This one needs some work, but I aim to get Perish Song and Sky Tactics. Also I wanna get him to lvl 70 or more)
6. Graveler, Lvl 39 Moves:Rock Throw, Substitute, Selfdestruct and Rock Blast (I am going to evolve him to Golem as soon as my friend finds his Ruby which he lost :rolleyes: )

I'm thinking about replacing Rayquaza with Gardevoir once I have my Kirlia evolved and about lvl 70.

Sorry if I'm a bit long-winded but I figured I should be descriptive :). BTW I only dabble in EV's and haven't really looked into IV's yet. I apreciate your opinions and constructive criticism :)

I am probably not the best one to judge since I don't agree with most people about the movesets of pokemon but in your case I believe I can help:
1. the only move that's good on the sceptile is leaf blade. WTF is cut doing there-earthquake, replace absorb with giga drain, pound(lol)-dragon claw or something
2.Rayquaza-lose fly, try crunch, or thunderbolt,ice beam,flamethrower etc.; other moves are ok
3.Whiscash- (magnitude)surf, snore-fissure if you want but I don't recommend it, rest & eq are fine
4.Machoke-where did you lose cross chop?, anyways replace dynamic punch with it,karate chop with revenge, + add an elemental punch
5.Altaria- I assume you mean sky attack, fury attack(lol)- should have tought it dragonbreath when it evolved, some moves you could put:earthquake, ice beam, thunderbolt, perish song etc.
6.Graveler-if a destructive move then explosion, rock throw-earthquake, rock blast-rock slide.

hope I could help. 5/10

Heh well lets just say the crap moves are from when I first got the game... Its been fun learning that cut and fury attack are crap... well thanks for the advice.

No problem. And I forgot- rock slide on machoke would be iseful-especially against flying types.

Another question how do I go about getting these moves on my pokemon?

EDIT: Its not pound its slam, is that any better?

Try Body Slam instead of Slam.

Let's see...since you're a beginner, I'll post movesets without HP's or Egg Moves for ya. And I'll tell you how you get them too.

* level up
# Battle Frontier
~ tm's

Sceptile (special Sceptile for the most part)
Leaf Blade *
Thunderpunch #
Dragon Claw ~
Aerial Ace/Brick Break ~

Gardvoir (you said that you'd replace Ray with it, so...)
Psychic *
Calm Mind *
Thunderbolt ~
Ice/Fire Punch #

Earthquake *
Amnesia *
Surf ~
Ice Beam ~

Revenge * (or Brick Break ~)
Earthquake ~
Rock Slide #
Bulk Up ~

Dragon Claw ~
Dragon Dance *
Flamethrower ~
Earthquake ~

Earthquake *
Explosion *
Double Edge * (with Rock Head ability of course)
Rock Blast * (or Rock Slide #)

Maybe you could fit Brick Break in there too...

So, I'm usually exactly like XRay as far as Movesets go, but hope it helps.

Thank you for your very informative post :) I'm glad that you guys take the time to help newbies.

Ugh... Please post your team in a readable format; that's one heck of an eyesore to read. You need to post natures and held items as well.

Okay I'm getting sick of these awful formats.

EVs: (provided you EV train which most people who post in-game teams won't)

Is it that hard? Read stickies please.

well, like i said, im not the master, unlike you, master Ryan....

oh, btw, salamence (pre-evolved Bagon in Meteor Falls) is much better than Altaria, though He is more of a physical sweeper than altaria who relies more on defense. Its your choice, but Since you already have altaria, and have some time while your friend finds his game pak, i say its your choice
