    GREETINGS TO ONE AND ALL! Your skills have been thoroughly tested, your pokémon have risen to the challenge and been proclaimed victorious! Now, to the next generation, we pass – our knowledge, our skill, and our experiences!

    Originally, this club was to bring the victors of the Battle Frontier in Pokemon Emerald, however with the new D/P Battle Tower presenting new and exciting challenges, the Golden Summit now covers D/P info, too. However, due to Diamond and Pearl being as relatively new as they are, the information will NOT be as detailed as what was contained in the Battle Frontier links. Just give it some time, and if you find something good that relates to Tower strategy, please tell me about it!



    THE RULES:

    • All SPP forum rules apply. Some things I’d like to stress, though…
      a. No foul language. I want to keep this organization respectable.
      b. When you post, MAKE SENSE. Be clear with what you are trying to say.
      c. No SPAM-ing, please. I will report you.
      d. Don't double-post, huh? Be smart. Use the "Edit" button. Accidents are fine - just delete the extras when you have a chance.


    • Be detailed! Don’t just say “I love the Dome!!!”, give us what Pokémon you used, movesets, battle sequences, how many rounds you got through before getting haxed to death, etc. You don’t have to give all this information every single time, but give us something to go on.


    • PLEASE respect you other Summit colleagues. Odds are, they might be learning, too. Even more experienced members.


    • This is more of a request than a rule. If you know anyone on the Forums who's been trying to get somewhere in the Tower or the Frontier, invite them!


    • Have fun! This is supposed to be a serious discussion thread, but please don’t take yourselves too seriously. We are all human, after all.

    FAQs: Refer to these links to answer your questions!

    Serebii Pokedex
    Well, at the time I added this, Serebii still hadn't changed the link to the pokedex at the top of the forum. Yay for being one step ahead of the main admin! (No offense! )

    Tower Pokemon
    As with the link for the Battle Frontier pokemon page, this page tells about EVERY SINGLE POKEMON you'll face in the D/P Battle tower.

    Volteon's Breeding Guide!
    Leave it to Volteon to make something as in-depth and detailed as this! Check it out!

    D/P breeding guide
    Nice, basic guide for fourth generation breeding.

    D/P Strategy guide
    The people at Smogon are no slouches. They've brought together analyses on how to use most of the pokemon in the 4th generation.

    Smogon Tier List
    Well, this is the tentative beginning of the 4th generation tier list. So far, it only shows the OU and Uber tiers, so it would be best to wait for the site to get back up before deciding that something is 100% in one tier or another.

    (the Summit is busy adding more links to help you in your efforts to beat the Tower! Please have patience. o.o)

    Other Sites
    These are other sites that are incredibly helpful. They're not Serebii, but they're still great!

    Psypoke
    This site is like a bizarre, mirror-image of Serebii, only with more detail. This site also has the same kinds of tools, but there are a few more.

    MetalKid's Gaming Resources
    Go here if you need to calculate anything about the third generation games. There are numerous calculators to map out IVs, EVs, and a lot more. A lot of the data still applies to the 4th generation, as well.

    Smogon.com
    Well, this site is mainly for competitive movesets and strategies. It's still very good for a lot of in-game stuff, and it would be a good idea to look here since the Wi-Fi is going to play a large part of D/P.



    Club Banners
    By request, here are some banners for the club. More will be added...


    ^ This one was the first official-looking banner to line the top of the front page of the Summit.


    ^ This was an updated version once I got a little more skilled at doing this sort of thing.

    Credits:
    PsiUmbreon, for answering some of my questions and pointing me in the right direction.
    Powerful_blaziken88 posted a wonderful thread that originally brought many of these members together for the first time, and that thread also helped me obtain the Battle Frontier symbols I have now.

    All club banners and images are from me (unless otherwise noted).

    Anything else...

    This is it - the best Pokemon Emerald Battle Frontier reference section ANYWHERE. It was removed from the Summit's first page to make room to focus on D/P, but only a complete idiot would lose the information (among other things) contained there. Well, I'm certainly not a COMPLETE idiot. Here you go! If you need advice on ANYTHING about the Emerald BF, click here.

    The battle dome is my favourite place in the BF.
    You can have quick battles with a lot of strategie.
    You have to think.

    Default The Battle Tower

    This following team not only won a gold re-match with anabel, it also got my streak in emerald at #119 which is where it still stands:

    Salamence @ Choice Band
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 252/Attack, 252/Speed, 6/ HP
    Earthquake
    Aerial Ace
    Double Edge / Rock Slide
    Brick Break

    Intimidate to cut attack and switch to starmie or blissey as necessary. While DDmence is preferable for the earlier rounds, CBmence can OHKO certain pokemon as necessary and switching will most likely occur anyways with lack of ample setup time. Double Edge is strongest attack along with earthquake & aerial ace (STAB). Brick Break for pesky normal types such as blissey, snorlax & clefable & company.

    Blissey @ Leftovers
    Nature: Bold
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 252 HP, 252 Defense, 6/Sp.Def
    Seismic Toss
    Softboiled
    Aromatherapy
    Toxic

    Toxic to outstall other leftover pests, aromatherapy to heal salamence and itself, rest is self-explanatory, incredible special wall.

    Starmie @ Brightpowder
    Nature: Modest
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EVs: 252 Sp.atk, 252 Speed, 6 HP
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Thunderbolt
    Psychic

    all-out special attacker covers for salamence's weaknesses and can OHKO most of dragontamer's pokemon. Brightpowder has saved it on many occasions as petaya berry can work but cannot survive from quick attackers or when paralyzed.

    Default Battle Dome

    for me it's definitely Battle Dome,this is my expeirence with the Dome,use a sweeper with Snorlax like Slaking or Starmie,they were incredibly succesfull in my 20 round streak,first turn Slaking with Return would almost ko anything,if it has problems,Snorlax stalls very well before sweeping,i look at the opponent team before who to pair with Snorlax,one thing i noticed in the Dome,a speedy pokemon can work you work wonders like Starmie,because the opponent speed is just lower and defenses in the Dome are low,easier to ko in one hit with Starmie or Slaking.Hope i helped,my team for the Dome

    Snorlax@Leftovers
    Careful
    Trait:Thick Fat
    EVS:Attack 252/126 HP/126 Defense
    Curse
    Rest
    Shadow Ball
    Return

    Starmie@Brightpowder
    Modest
    Trait:Natural Cure
    EVS:SA 252/speed 252/HP 6
    Psychic
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Thunderbolt

    Slaking@Choice Band
    Adamant

    The Battle Dome. NOTE!: Some info MIGHT be inaccurate.

    T-Tar VS Swampert
    Battle... BEGIN!

    Go T-Tar!
    Battle Dome Ace Sent Out Swampert!

    T-Tar uses EQ. Swampert Faints. Easy

    T-Tar VS Charizard

    I recall my T-Tar, and send out Starmie!

    Charizard uses ??? (I forget)
    Starmie has 3/4 health left.
    Starmie uses surf!
    Charizard Faints!

    Obtained Gold symbole!

    Default The Battle Tower

    The Battle Tower

    This was the 6th facility I tried for the gold symbol, so I guess that after a lot of battles with different rules, this one was very easy. These were my pokemon:

    Metagross
    Adamant Nature
    Flawless Attack, Defense and Speed; Fully EV trained in Attack and the rest in Sp. Defense and Defense.
    @Lum Berry
    -Meteor Mash
    -Earthquake
    -Shadow Ball
    -Explosion

    Salamence
    Adamant Nature
    Flawless Attack and Speed and fully EV trained in those.
    @scope lens
    -Dragon Dance
    -Aerial Ace
    -Earthquake
    -Rock Slide

    Starmie
    Modest Nature
    Flawless Sp. Attack and EV trained in Sp. Attack and Speed
    @BrightPowder
    -Psychic
    -Surf
    -Ice Beam
    -Thunderbolt

    They worked perfect, I got the gold symbol in my first try.

    Default The Battle Pike

    Battle Pike was the first thing I tried in the Battle Frontier. It was prety easy to get to Pike queen Lucy, but it took me at least 5 tries to beat her. I changed my team to Venasour, Blastiose and Letias.

    Venasour (holding leftovers)
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Frenzy Plant
    -Earthquake
    -Razor Leaf

    Blastoise (holding sitrus berry)
    -Surf
    -Ice Beam
    -Hydro Cannon
    -Mega Punch

    Latias (holding lum berry)
    -Psichic
    -Dragon Claw or Dragonbreath (I forgot which one)
    -Toxic
    -Recover

    I used this team to win my Silver symbol. I thought I did not stand a chance with the items and movesets I gave my pokemon, but I beat her quite easily. Latias was first in my lineup, it took out Lusy's Seviper with one Psychic and almost killed Milotic (recover saved it). It killed my Latias and I send out Venasaur. It finished Milotic with one Razor Leaf (critical hit), then she send out Shuckle, I used Frenzy Plant and took almost half. (usually she beat me by using Toxic/Sand Storm, but Toxic did not affect Venasaur and leftovers saved me from Sand Storm.) It used Rest after a few turns I used Frenzy plant and OHKOed it because of another critical hit (I was so lucky).
    Looking for a legit untouched Latias with calm modest or timid nature PM me if you want to trade
    I have shiny Rayquaza Tentacruel Weezing Swalot Salamence Zubat and Marill to trade for the Lati@s. All of them are shiny and 100% legit PM me if you want to trade.

    Default The Battle Dome

    For the easiest gold symbol battle, check out this video I made for YouTube which involves a shedinja against Dome Ace Tucker for gold tactics re-match:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-fjRw2fxU0

    Shedinja
    Nature: adamant
    EV: 255 attack, 255 speed
    - swords dance (evolve and shedskin at level 25 and let ninjask learn swords dance)
    - shadow ball
    - silver wind (bred with masquerain, beautifly or dustox)
    - aerial ace

    Starmie @ brightpowder
    Nature: modest
    Trait: Natural Cure
    EV: 252 sp.atk, 252 speed, 6 HP
    - surf
    - ice beam
    - thunderbolt
    - psychic

    awesome sweeper, let heracross take care of its weaknesses

    Heracross @ focus band
    Nature: adamant
    Trait: guts
    EV: 252 attack, 252 speed, 6 HP
    - Megahorn
    - Rock Slide
    - Brick Break
    - Earthquake

    Good at taking out pesky normal types

    wow never use frenzy plant and hydro cannon because u lose a turn to attack and that turn could be fatal e.g. surf over two turns=190 hydrocannon over two turns=150 you see the difference

    You know, you're right. I think that there are two sides to that, though. You see, the pokemon only uses turn #2 if the opponent survives the first hit. Even if the opposing trainer still has pokemon left, he's still down by one. So, those moves (Frenzy Plant, Blast Burn, Hydro Cannon, and Hyper Beam) can be useful for a hard-hitting first punch (like Slaking).

    Default Miscellaneous (Slaking)

    For a pokemon that can OHKO many things in its way, consider the following:

    slaking @ choice band
    Nature: adamant
    EV: 252 attack, 252 speed, 6 HP
    - return (STAB)
    - earthquake
    - shadow ball
    - focus punch / aerial ace

    Return for STAB with max happiness, shadow ball for ghosts, earthquake as strong attack, either focus punch for curselax,blissey,umbreon or aerial ace for double teamers.

    Slaking works best in the later rounds of battle pyramid and battle dome. I do not recommend using in battle palace and consider it risky to use in battle arena. I would not recommend in the earlier rounds since many know protect and weaker and much better having a pure sweeper to go faster through them.

    Ugh...I'm really having a hard time winning the gold symbol for the battle tower, but anyway, as of my gold symbols:

    For the Battle Dome gold, I was totally unprepared for this one...I did not know what pokemon Tucker had for the gold team, but I somehow stood up and won.

    (I didn't have a lot of good items back then, like this team below, but now I do)

    Latios@Lum Berry
    Naive: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Spd, 6 HP
    Thunderbolt
    Ice Beam
    Dragon Claw
    Psychic

    Salamence@Scope Lens
    Adamant: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 6 HP
    Earthquake
    Brick Break
    Aerial Ace
    Rock Slide

    Metagross@Salac Berry (meh...again, I did not have great items back then)
    Adamant: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 6 HP
    Shadow Ball
    Sludge Bomb
    Meteor Mash
    Earthquake

    Tucker pulls out a Swampert while I took out my Metagross.

    Turn 1: Metagross (100%) used Earthquake, Swampert (70%) used Mirror Coat (failed)
    Turn 2: Metagross (100%) used Earthquake, Swampert (40%) used Earthquake
    Turn 3: Metagross (8%) used Earthquake, Swampert (9%) used Ice Beam.

    Metagross faints; I send out Latios.

    (I knew the fact that if I switched, Latios would lose around 70% of its HP)

    Turn 4: Latios (100%) used Psychic.

    Swampert faints, Tucker sends out Latias.

    (I'm glad he did not pull out a Metagross...if he did, I'm toast)


    Turn 5: Latios (100%) used Dragon Claw, Latias fainted.

    The gold tactics symbol is officially mine.
    I'll post my results for the Battle Pike gold later in the day...or tomorrow.

    Default The Battle Pyramid (strategic pokemon)

    Here are some pokemon to use at specific rounds in the Battle Pyramid as follows:

    Round 1:

    Linoone
    Nature: Adamant or Jolly
    EV: 252 Attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP
    - Covet
    - Return
    - Shadow Ball
    - ????

    One of the keys to success in the battle pyramid is to stock up on items and best to do that in the earlier rounds when there are trainers with much weaker pokemon. Fight all weaker pokemon with 2 stronger sweepers preferably a physical sweeper that knows earthquake and desireably resistant to electric (flygon, salamence, gligar) along with a special sweeper that knows psychic preferably a levitating one in event of double battles (gengar, lati@s). Linoone has the 10% opportunity to pickup essential items, and you can covet items on trainer pokemon as well. Ideal hold items necessary are choice band (for physical pokemon later on), shell bell for HP recovery, focus band to possibly help save a revive item and scope lens for any possible critical hits. Since there's a limit of items to carry, try to limit to 2-3 different hold items while you'll definitely need the best healing items.

    Round 6:

    Houndoom
    Nature: Modest
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EV: 252 sp.atk, 252 speed, 6 HP
    - flamethrower
    - crunch
    - protect
    - roar

    Round 6 has the wild trapper pokemon so you cannot switch nor run away from wynaut/wobbuffet, so along comes the perfect counter, resistant to mirror coat and can also roar away. Houndoom can also easily OHKO all the other weak wild pokemon as well.

    Lapras
    Nature: Modest
    Trait: Water Absorb
    EV: lots of HP & Sp.atk, rest in defense
    - surf
    - ice beam
    - thunderbolt
    - psychic / rain dance

    Houndoom needs help when facing a trainer with water pokemon, so switch in to lapras to predict a surf, and its HP gets healed instantly, and can also dish out a thunderbolt to be super effective.

    For a 3rd pokemon, slaking & metagross are great choices.

    Default New Topic!

    All right! That was pretty good! Many thanks go to the people who posted above this one. If you still want to post along this (or any other) topic, feel free to do so. Just make sure that you say what topic you are going to post about.

    This next topic is probably aimed at the more experienced members...

    What was your hardest facility and why?

    The Battle Arena

    Since I really haven't done as much, I can't say a whole lot, but I can say that (so far) it was the Arena, for me. Time after time (about round #6-7), I kept getting haxed by a DUGTRIO! All of its Fissures kept hitting! At one point, Salamence (in the yellow) took an Ancientpower and survived with 15 HP! I would've won, but my dragon FLINCHED. Then came the Fissures...

    Miscellaneous

    As for getting another symbol...

    I'm breeding a Skarmory, that's all I'm going to say...

    Default The Battle Tower (hardest challenge)

    Of the 6 gold symbols earned in the first attempt, none of them were really considered that easy as at least one of my pokemon always fainted and any stroke of luck could have gone the other way possible, so I choose battle tower with anabel as being the toughest as I had the following team:

    salamence @ choice band
    nature: adamant
    EVs: 252 attack/speed, 6 HP
    - Earthquake
    - Aerial Ace
    - Brick Break
    - Double Edge

    Snorlax @ Leftovers (shiny)
    nature: calm (careful is recommended)
    EVs: 252 HP/sp.def, 6 Defense
    - Curse
    - Rest
    - Return
    - Shadow Ball

    Starmie @ Brightpowder
    nature: Modest
    trait: Natural Cure
    Evs: 252 sp.atk/speed, 6 HP
    - surf
    - ice beam
    - thunderbolt
    - psychic

    The time it took for me to get to gold in battle tower after winning previous gold in battle palace was about 2 months and was oh so close to reaching anabel on few occasions. This one time I finally made it straight to anabel was a risk since I included in my party my new shiny snorlax of an undesireable calm nature which still had flawless defense & impressive in abilities which still outstalled an articuno in a previous match.

    As the match took place, salamence OHKO raikou with earthquake, then switched to snorlax with latios on the field which allowed it 2 calm minds. snorlax was only able to get in a curse and a return and failed to hit latios on a 2nd return when it fainted. Now was starmie to face a half-health latios as it 2HKO latios with ice beam while dragon claw missed with starmie's brightpowder. Now came anabel's curselax and it cursed on the switch to salamence. snorlax did curse & rest a few times and hit salamence with return which got salamence's HP at exactly 1 allowing salamence to get at least one more brick break in to make it low enough for starmie's surf to get the job done.

    Now if only I can make it to battle factory gold noland... 35 wins away currently.

    Default Battle Tower

    Hardest was Battle Tower, a close second is Factory.

    Tower I had:

    Starmie @ Brightpowder
    Modest
    252 S.attack 252 Speed 6 HP
    Ice beam
    Thunderbolt
    Surf
    Psychic

    Salamence @ Scope lens
    Adamant
    252 attack 252 Speed 6 HP
    Earthquake
    Brick Break
    Aerial Ace
    Return

    Blissey @ Leftovers
    Impish
    252 HP 252 Defense 6 S.defense
    Softboiled
    Seismic Toss
    Counter
    Aromateraphy

    Smart and obvious switch for Blissey against Raikou, it uses thundebolt and takes some HP, next 5 turns I used Seismic toss and Softboiled to finish with Raikou, then Latios could *misteriously* do two Critical hit Dragon Claw on my Blissey... Starmie is in the arena now, I ce Beamed once and red HP for Latios, the rest you can imagine... another CHit Dragon Claw ¬_¬ Salamence simply used Aerial ace on Latios to appear Snorlax O_O I kept Brick Breaking until Snorlax uses Return after two or one Curse(s) and put me on red HP. The it was the time to payback those Critical Hits! CH Brick Break on it =D

    So lucky! Ah this was Anabel in the 105th battle, the Gold battle (in the 70th battle) was easier.

    Factory I had:
    Vaporeon
    Latios (psychical)
    Blissey (not sure)

    First Noland´s Pokémon was Shiftry, obviously no Water will battle a strong grass Pokémon without Ice attacks, so I switched for Blissey, it used Explosion ¬_¬
    Vaporeon returned in the battle, against a weak opponent, Schuckle.
    Three Surfs and it was out, but I had 30% of my HP when it happened, I was also poisoned.
    Regirock appeared, I tried one Surf, but Quick Claw activated and he killed me with an Rock Slide...
    Latios IIRC had Earthquake, Shadow Ball, Thunder Wave and another Psychical attack. I used Thunder Wave first, so did Regirock, then I remembered once that I was in Battle Tower and I lost to a Regirock that used Explosion in my last Pokémon, and they both had the same moveset, I kept Earthquaking until I got paralyzed for 5 turns in a row, in the end of that 5th turn, we both had red HP, then cool! Latios used Shadow Ball O_o I pressed the wrong button >_< Regirock used Rock Slide again, and it missed! the next turn I was paralized, so was Regirock, then I could finally use Earthquake to end the battle!

    I don´t know how I could win O_o
