    Default Rate my Emerald Team (Currently facing the Elite Four)

    Hey there! As I'm trying to train myself for competitive battles, I am trying to pay attention to the way I train my in-game teams in order to find the best combinations for battling someone over wifi. That being said, I'd like to have my current team rated, as if I were to hypothetically use them in an actual tournament.

    Currently, I am at Phoebe of the Elite Four. This is my first time in a long time doing the Emerald Pokemon League. Here's the gang:

    This guy looks like a HM slave. Since you're approaching post-story, no need for all those HM moves. Surf is his best STAB-Water he knows so Dive and Waterfall are not necessary. I like its nature BTW (+Sp. ATK, -Defense).


    Wyndam the Male Linoone (Level 42)
    - Bashful Nature
    - Pickup Ability
    - Holding Silk Scarf

    Moveset:
    - Cut
    - Strength

    - Slash
    Another guy with one too many HM moves. If I was to get rid of one, Cut would be it. Slash is good for critical hits and I'm quite curious about Thunderbolt. Nature is neutral so no comment..


    Blousey the Female Swellow (Level 42)
    - Lonely Nature
    - Guts Ability
    - No Item

    Moveset:
    - Endeavor
    - Aerial Ace
    - Double Team
    - Fly
    One of my favorite bird Pokémon (besides Pidgeot & Articuno). This is a very good Pokémon with its Nature, moveset, and ability. A word of advice: Because of its ability, it's best for it to learn Façade, a move that doubles Attack if poisoned, paralyzed, or burn and this stacks with the ability. Watch out for Rock-types, though, as its nature hurts its Defense.


    Pan the Female Nuzleaf (Level 41)
    - Timid Nature
    - Chlorophyll Ability
    - Holding Miracle Seed

    Moveset:
    - Dig
    - Razor Wind
    - Rock Smash
    - Giga Drain
    This Pokémon is a NFE (Not Fully Evolved) so those are tricky to rate. Why have 3 physical attacks if you take a blow in Attack thanks to your Nature. Unless its Attack is pretty high, I wouldn't keep none of those moves expect for Giga Drain.


    Sable the Female Sableye (Level 41)
    - Bashful Nature
    - Keen Eye Ability
    - Holding Quick Claw

    Moveset:
    - Flash
    - Shadow Ball
    - Toxic
    - Psychic
    Good moveset overall. Neutral nature means no comment. This gal can beat out almost anything that are not Poison, Steel, & those with the ability Immunity. Protect would be a good substitute for Flash unless you want to lower their accuracy. Also, this is the only Pokémon in this generation with no weaknesses (unless the foe uses Foresight and murk you with a Fighting-type move.)


    Marx the Male Crobat (Level 41)
    - Rash Nature
    - Inner Focus Ability
    - Holding Soothe Bell

    Moveset:
    - Confuse Ray
    - Air Cutter
    - Wing Attack
    - Bite
    This guy has an odd moveset thanks to its Nature. Plus, the Soothe Bell is useless in battle since the only thing it does is raises Happiness.

    Your sable really attracted me, since it is a dual type Dark/Ghost type, it has no weakness. I found my male sableye SABBY, in the granite cave, I defeated many E4 pokemons using just SABBY so i really loved him.
