    Salamence, Lucario, and Milotic. I beat Palmer (single, first time) with them. And for some reason, I used my Milotic against his Milotic... :/

    My team that got me far in the Battle Tower was:
    Latias
    Latios
    Regigias

    I know it seems like a weird choice, but it worked! got me up to battle 83 before it failed.

    If people want, i"ll edit this post with the stats and movesets later because My DS is charging.

    Well, Nintendo confirmed (at least in Emerald's Frontier) the buildings have higher luck, just to make game more "challenging". I bet they've kept it and the same for Platinum's Battle Area.

    I used

    Qwilfish

    Toxicroak

    Ninetales

    and...

    Bronzong!

    (in tag team or w/e)

    I would go into battle and make Qwilfish explode while making my Toxicroak use protect <.<; thats how I got through most of the battles in there XD

    Maybe we could turn this into a discussion thread for what could be a perfect team too?

    I was thinking maybe

    1. Ninjask, speed/attack passer
    2. Smeargle, magnet rise passer
    3. Regigigas, immunity to ground, no slow start, and boosted attack and speed.

    Seems good, but it obviously has flaws (i. e. Taunt, OHKO moves, priority...)

    On the topic of what got me the highest, I actually only had 1 Pokémon that really did well, namely beating the first 21 (including Palmer) without help.

    Breloom @ Toxic Orb
    252 Att., 252 Speed, 4 HP
    Jolly/Adamant (dunno off the top of my head. I think Adamant)
    ~ Seed bomb
    ~ Focus Punch
    ~ Spore
    ~ Substitute

    Yeah, it's standard, but it works.

    Thunderbolt
    Calm Mind
    Soft Boiled

    Infernape + Life Orb
    Close Combat
    Earthquake
    Grass Knot
    Fire Blast

    ALOT of close calls with this team against hippodwns that had fire fang and random flailers

    My previous team that brought me to 280 was

    Garchomp + yache
    Dragon Claw
    Earthquake
    Fire Fang
    Swords Dance

    Raikou + Shuca
    Thunderbolt
    Shadowball
    HP Ice 62 bp

    Bronzong + leftovers
    Earthquake
    Gyro Ball
    Toxic
    Explosion

    This team had ALOT of problems with CB or Revenge Aerodactyls and Sash/Revenge Weaviles because they outsped my pokemon and put dents that would allow another fast pokemon to take out the weakend pokemon easily.

    WHAT?!?!
    That Would explain it!...
    One question, does that mean When the battle tower people use Double Team It's a even lower chance of hitting than normal? Oww...

    Also, does Palmer only apper in single battle?

    I'll be back with my team later...

    Do you wish you could do things like in the anime?
    Do you wish you could dodge behind a rock to avoid an attack?
    Do you wish that you could use the arena to stop your opponents cold?
    If you answered yes to any of those questions, the Pokemon Anime Style Battling League could be for you!

    I haven't played Diamond in awhile but I can remember what I've done in the Battle Tower.

    My team that got me the farthest was...
    -Charizard
    -Lucario
    -Froslass
    And my highest streak was 60 wins...yes I survived both of Palmer's fights especially where he used Heatran, Cresselia, and Regigigas :]

    I'm planning on trying a new team in Platinums BT since there alot of new moves I can make really good use of, like sucker punch on Umbreon.

    Well, I had a Gyrados and a Salamance in front of my party in double battle at the battle tower.
    Gyrados Male
    Item: Wide Lens
    Move Set: Ice Fang, Stone Edge, Aqua Tail, and Earthquake
    Ability: Intimidate
    Salamance Female
    Item: Muscle Band
    Move Set: Hydro Pump, Dragon claw, Earthquake, and Crunch
    Ability: Intimidate

    The other two, I randomly use different pokemon for other purposes.

    Having both a Gyrados and Salamance can be really useful. They both use intimidate to reduce the opponents Attack, not one but two. Whats more, they both know Earthquake, and I use them to annihilate the opponent. This makes them both the perfect powerhouse.

    I made it through 43 Consecutive bouts. It was pretty much a cake walk, easy battle point picking.

    For single Battles, I got pretty far with this team.
    Venasuar Female
    Ability: Overgrow
    Item: Black Sludge
    Move Set: Sludge Bomb, Leech Seed, Giga Drain, and Earthquake.
    I have Venasuar costumed to be constantly recovering, making it a good leech tank.
    Milotic Male
    Ability: Marvel Scale
    Item: Leftovers
    Moveset: Hydro Pump, Surf, Dragon Pulse, and Ice Beam.
    I could've have a Milotice that knows recover, refresh or mirror coat to replace surf, but I never got around to it. It would've been better.
    Salamance Female
    Ability: Intimidate
    Item: Muscle Band
    Move set: Hydro Pump, Crunch, Dragon Claw, and Earthquake.
    A perfect powerhouse, just like my Garchomp, Sceptile, Gyrados, Metagross, and Lucario.

    I only made in through 42 consecutive bouts. It feels like my team isn't as strong as its supposed to be, because I keep encountering trainers that have pokemon that are stronger than normal, and coordinate their strategies pretty well, embarrassing of all, type disadvantage. Its pretty easy to win against Palmer (first fight) with this team.

    I really like this team in the battle tower I came to the 118:th opponent but lost there but still its impresive. You may ask why i have swagger on my jolt and there is a simple answer to that. The opponent doesnt change their statused pokemons which makes swagger great in tuff situations. metagross explosion is also very handy because he often takes out 1 poke and can explode on the second or on a troublesome poke.

    i was flying through a 39 win streak with my electivire, garchomp and lucario when all of a sudden. I had to fight THAT pokemon. the gliscor with guillotine and wide lens. personally, i don't believe that having something that is sent out last and keeps using a cheap move until it finishes off your entire team is a sign of skill - more like a sign of nintendo forcing you to waste 1/3 of your team on something with sturdy as an ability.
