    Default Official Team Help Thread

    All right, this thread is to cut back on those "Is XYZ good for my team?" and "I want a ABC-type Pokemon, what would be best for this game?" threads.

    Ask for help getting team members (in-game and story mode only), advice on what would fit, and the like. You can also use this thread to ask for advice on a specific Pokemon you may be considering for a team. Don't spam or just repeat what someone else already said. You may respond to someone who was already responded to, but only if you have a new perspective/more information or something to offer.

    So in other words, this thread is more for people that haven't decided on their team yet and need some help picking some pokemon to use, or people who have decided on a few pokemon but need another team member and aren't sure of who to pick. It looks like a good idea.

    Remember, if you have a prepared team and you want suggestions on how to improve it, that's what the Rate My Team forum is for.

    Yep, that's exactly what it is, Yo Shee. Ingame team rate is for people who are at least mostly decided on their team; this is for people who are still building it. There were tons of threads about a single Pokemon/type, so I figured that a thread to consolidate them makes the forums nice and tidy

    All of the starters are pretty good. I'd say pick your favorite one, then pick other Pokemon of different types to build a team. Ralts and Abra are both catchable early in the game and will be a great asset later (but pick Ralts for sure if you can't trade and evolve Kadabra to Alakazam). Shroomish/Breloom would be helpful later if you don't pick Treecko. Marill could be an okay water-type if you don't pick Mudkip.

    If you don't have a favorite starter, Torchic might be helpful because you can catch Shroomish and Marill before the first Gym, but there's no more Fire until later.

    Does anyone have a list of which types are physical and which types are special in the 3rd Gen and lower?

    I think I might actually play my Emerald again. Since I already migrated my Grovyle over to DP, I won't be using a starter this time around.

    So, I was wondering what Pokemon I should use, in addition to:

    Volbeat (Physical Sweeper)
    ??? (Physical Sweeper)
    Solrock (Special Sweeper)
    ??? (Special Sweeper)
    Gloom/Vileplume/Bellossom (Sleeper/Catcher)
    Linoone (HM Slave, Pickuper).

    Okay, I think my team is gonna be Charizard, Lapras, Alakazam, Vileplume, Rhydon, and some electric pokemon. Which should I use: Jolteon, Raichu, Electabuzz, Magneton, or Elecrode?

    Umbreon-dana, you could use Hariyama and Gardevoir. Both are available early in the game and have good moves, and fill the roles you suggested.

    weatherdude, Electabuzz might be good for you since it can also learn a variety of other moves.

    The moveset you have looks pretty good. You can get good special coverage with dragon and water, and you can get good physical coverage with ground and rock.

    Adamantursaring: Since this is the third generation, there isn't any use in Waterfall since it's still a special attack.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    Vileplume
    -Petal Dance
    -Sleep Powder
    -Moonlight
    -Sludge Bomb/Double Edge
    Or, you could try a Sunny Day set:
    -Sunny Day
    -Solarbeam
    -Moonlight
    -Hidden Power (Fire/Psychic)/ Double Edge/Sludge Bomb/Sleep Powder
    After using Sunny Day, Vileplume's speed is boosted, Solarbeam fires in one turn, Hidden Power Fire is boosted in power, and Moonlight heals more HP. Of course, to get the Hidden Power TM, you have to be holding a Meowth on your team and just hope that it randomly picks up the TM after a battle, so that may not be the most desirable move.

    Victreebel
    -Razor Leaf/Giga Drain
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Sleep Powder
    -Thief/Hidden Power Psychic
    The first two moves are your primary ones, and your last move is to help get coverage against poison types such as Weezing. Plus Thief can be helpful for stealing stuff from wild pokemon.

    Of course, keep in mind that Victreebel can do the Sunny Day set as well, just with Sludge Bomb in place of Moonlight.
    ___________________________________________

    Vileplume:
    -Has a better grass type move (Petal Dance, while Victreebel has to resort to Razor Leaf or Giga Drain)
    -Has better defensive stats
    -Has a healing move (Moonlight)

    Victreebel:
    -Can use Sludge Bomb more effectively
    -Has better speed

    The choice is yours. I've used both and I personally like Victreebel better, but you may like Vileplume better since you have such a large team and you don't really need to have Sludge Bomb that much.

    For now that's what I'll tell you. When you start your game and have all of your pokemon, you can make a Rate My Team thread in the Rate My Team section and post your planned movesets and I can help you with them.

    The Attack boosting items won't be very helpful so i would get rid of those
    And as for Donphan or Piloswine i would go with Donphan
    With Donphan instead of Rollout (which i don't like due to the fact that while you are using it you can't do anything else) try rock slide or HP Rock if you can get it

    Tyranitar: I have the same moveset with Thunderbolt on mine, but you could also consider Surf, Ice Beam, and Flamethrower, even though your team already has most of those types.

    Crobat: Shadow Ball.

    Scizor: It should have learned Wing Attack as a Scyther, but now that it can't, you're pretty much limited to Swords Dance, Steel Wing, and Slash.

    Donphan: Rock Slide.

    First of all: Thanks for the comments, I'll try them out

    And Indignation, what should I use instead of the power boosting items?

    There is no limitation, I'll just go catch lots of magnemites on my sapphire and use the Metal Coats to trade them to my LG and evolve a newly hatched Scyther after I learned it Wing Attack .

    And while I'll hatch a new one, would it be handy to breed Silver Wind on it?

    Yes, Silver Wind would be a good idea in place of Slash or Swords Dance. Also, if you're going to be breeding, you should try to get one with the Adamant nature, which is the best one for Scizor.
