I haven't actually got the game yet but I was looking at the Elite Four and since I always struggle on them, I thought maybe I should create a team that could hopefully grow up to destroy them!
So I made a list of all the E4 pokemon's weaknesses and tried to build my team from there. Probably not the way it's usually done but just hear me out...
Anyway, I like every Pokemon in my team to play their part, which means no HM slaves. Thats why I have a physical water and a special water - so they can share waterfall and surf. I like my HM's to be split up over the team.
So here we go...I'm sure this team is probably hilariously bad but thats why I'm here asking for help...so please rate away!
I love it. It looks awesome. Probably not the best reason to have a Pokemon on your team and also it can't learn any HMs. So this is the one that I will be happiest to let go if I need to ):
He wasn't my first choice, but I realised that I had a big electric weakness. Also, it can never hurt to have a dark type right? So hes immune to electric and psychic attacks.
Because every team needs a flyer and because it's awesome. So I guess I'll be buying White version.
My physical water. He can waterfall and dive. Hopefully with solid rock to make those super-effective hits slightly less devastating.
My special water. He can surf. Plus he can learn shadow ball and energy ball which I thought was pretty cool.
As we've learned from the past two generations, fire + fighting = good. He can burn the pesky grass types that threaten my waters and my croc.
