    Alright, thanks for your input! I'm normally terrible at picking teams, so to hear that is refreshing.
    Also, would getting the Eevee with Anticipation be a good idea? I can't remember if it passes down its Hidden Ability or not...

    Normally, you would be unable to get these abilities through usual breeding. However, if the female Pokémon has the Dream World ability, there is a high chance that the ability of the offspring will be the ability it has listed for Dream World abilities. However, if the male Pokémon has the Dream World ability and the female doesn't, and if you breed the female with a Ditto, the Pokémon will definitely not get the Dream World ability.

    I'll assume mechanics are the same from BW1

    Eh thanks for the advice I guess. I'm not worried about which Pokemon are 'good' or not considering I functioned fine with, for example, Vanilluxe and Swoobat in White, and Feraligatr / Furret / Noctowl / Aipom / Jumpluff / Wobbuffet in HG haha.

Sadly, Muk is not great at all: almost no Poison moves take advantage of its Attack, so Weezing is a better choice. Beheeyem is inferior to Reuniclus.

    For fast Sp. Attackers, consider replacing Beheeyem with Espeon; it is stronger, faster, and if you can find Eevee in a Hidden Hollow, a complete monster with Magic Bounce. Jolteon is really fast, has high Sp. Attack, and can wall most of Elesa's gym.
    Thanks for the advice. It's a tough decision between Muk and Weezing for me because they're both Pokemon that I adore to bits and I've always wanted to use them in a team but never did, most recently in HG where I caught them both but they were caught at such low levels that I figured it would just be a pain training them up. :s

    I'm probably not going to have room for Crunch on Flygon seeing as I'd probably run Fly / Dragon Claw / Earthquake / Fire Punch, but yeah.

    I'll keep Reuinclus in mind, as I will Espeon. I chose Beheeyem because I really adore its design, but yeah its speed leaves a lot to be desired.

    And thanks for the suggestion of Jolteon. I hadn't considered that before. (: Anymore suggestions?

    it can if it is female, and you don't breed it with a Ditto.

    Don't give it Earthquake, as Ground & Fight shares similar coverage, with Fight getting STAB.


    Lucario: Inner Focus - Hasty/Naive
    - Aura Sphere
    - Ice Punch
    - Dark Pulse
    - ExtremeSpeed

    Another option would be Dragon Pulse over Extremespeed, and Shadow Ball over Dark Pulse.


    Espeon: Magic Bounce - Modest
    - Psychic or Psyshock
    - Shadow Ball
    - Signal Beam
    - Calm Mind

    Grass Knot can also be used instead of Signal Beam.


    Braviary: Defiant - Adamant
    - Fly
    - Return
    - Rock Slide
    - Shadow Claw

    That's a good enough set, I think.


    Flygon: Adamant
    - Earthquake
    - Dragon Claw
    - FirePunch
    - ThunderPunch / Rock Slide / Crunch

    The last move doesn't matter, you can just randomly pick any of those three, since Fire + Dragon + Ground already covers everything for at least neutral damage.


    Lapras: Water Absorb - Timid
    - Surf
    - Ice Beam
    - Psychic
    - Thunderbolt

    Good set

    While I decided my main team for Black 2 ( ) I also want to have four extra reserves I'm trying to decide on. So far these are what I was considering:

    Are you planning on leaving Dewott, Sandshrew, Spoink and Growlithe unevolved?

    I'm still stressed out with assembling my Team.

    All I know I want to use no matter what are:

    Samurott
    Arcanine

    For Electric Types it's between Eelektross, Electivire or Magnezone
    For Ground Types it's between Krookodile and Excadrill
    For Psychic Types it's between Sigilyph, Gothitelle, Grumpig or I could try a Metagross?

    and their really aren't many good Flying types as I used Braviary already, Maybe Skarmory I don't know?

    I find a lot of these same Pokemon have the same weaknesses and can be easily exploited. and I don't want to use just one non-Unova Pokemon or should I ditch Arcanine since I used him back in Fire Red and never since? and go with Darminatin.

    and I noticed I have more Physical attackers than special.......ARGH! Team Planning Hurts....so much,

    Currently I have plans for a team consisting of:

    Sunflora
    Azumarill
    Muk
    Pinsir
    Probopass
    Flygon

    Given that there are currently 18 Unova families I've yet to use in Black and White and most of those are late game. I'll probably end up using things like Volcarona and Zorua in my Black playthrough. Still, why did they make Stunfisk postgame?

    Yeah, it's one of the few I've never used before, so I figured I might as well since you can get Sunkern on the second route.

    Eelektross can go mixed. Krookodile has more diversity, but Excadrill hits harder and faster. Consider Espeon for its amazing Speed and strength, because having Skarmory and Sigilyph gives you a huge weakness to Electric. Skarmory is a nice choice since you don't want Braviary. Darmanitan and Arcanine are interchangable.

    Sunflora is not that great, unfortunately. Azumarill isn't the best Water-type out there, but a solid choice nonetheless. Muk is completely outclassed by Weezing. Pinsir is just like Heracross, only with slight more diversity and no Fighting STAB. Probopass is unique and a solid wall. Flygon is simply amazing and a unique Dragon.

    My White 2 future team will be:

    Emboar- Flare Blitz
    Wild Charge
    Superpower
    Earthquake
    I Like the design (especially shiny) and think it has the potential to be a real powerhouse.

    Espeon- Psychic
    Signal Beam
    Shadow Ball
    Calm Mind/Morning Sun
    It is really fast and has huge special attack. It also has a cool new ability.

    Garchomp- Earthquake
    Dragon Claw
    Stone Edge
    ????
    I'll trade an egg from white. I originally chose Flygon but I have used him a lot so I went for a change. I need some help with the moveset though.

    Azumarill- Ice Punch
    Superpower
    Waterfall
    Aqua Jet
    I first thought this was rubbish then saw it had huge power as an ability and thought I had to have one.

    Cincinno- Tail Slap
    Rock Blast
    Bullet Seed
    Sing
    With an average attack and a good ability, I thought I would have some fun with it. Give it wide lens to boost accuracy of all moves.

    Galvantula- Energy Ball
    Bug Buzz
    Thunder
    HP Ice/Volt Switch/Electro Ball
    With ability Compoundeyes it can use Thunder easily and is very fast.

    Help Is Appreciated

    But I've already have used Espeon back in Soul Silver. I think I might need need to use Sigilyph.....I want to use more non-Unova pokemon and I kind of want more faster Pokemon and I need another good special attacker.

    This is actually pretty tough for me to consider right now. I know there are a few pokemon I really just need to have on my team this time around, but then there are others who I am not 100% on.

    Arcanine(P) : I love Arcanine. It's always been my favorite fire type, only second to Typhlosion during G/S/C. Given that it now gets Outrage I'm even more excited about him! Power and style, the perfect Fire type as far as I'm concerned.

    Espeon(S) : Magic Bounce is an awesome ability and getting a free Eevee early on with it's DW Ability is just the best. Espon is fast and hits hard. With a Physical power-house like Arcanine it's pretty legit to have it team alongside Espeon.

    Lucario(P-S) : I'm not sure if I want a Physical or Special Lucario, but I know I want a Lucario. I had it on every team in 4th Gen, but never used one during the 5th Gen. Time to correct that mistake!

    Sceptile(S) : Probably my favorite starter period. Serperior I wished so much to like, but it's offensive stats are so weak in comparison to the mighty Sceptile! Fast and powerful~~!

    These I know I want, but the next two are tricky!

    Flygon vs. Sandlash (5th Spot) : Sandlash was a pokemon I loved in 1st and 2nd Gen, but Flygon became a favorite in the 3rd Gen. I don't need two ground types and they both have a unique role to play. I hate to put it like this, but color scheme may be what forces my hand. I may choose Sandslash purely because I don't want 2 Green pokes on my team >.< Terribad me! That said, Sandslash would be the only defensive pokemon I'm interested in as well.

    Dragonite vs. Samurott (6th Spot) : Ok, here is the thing...I love using the starter pokes till the end, but even so I think I could forgive this for a MixNite. The other thing is I like having a pokemon who can use Surf through the game and that screams Samurott more than Dragonite. I need someone to give me an honest opinion on this last slot.

    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

    Other Pokes: (Here are some other pokemon who are easily obtained that I'd like to rotate through the team from time to time).

    Heracross : The Best Buggy Poke Ever! If Lucario were Physical then I'd swap him up with Heracross from time to time.

    Galvantula : 90%+ Accurate Thunders!!? Oh yes, I love this pokemon!

    Salamence&Haxorus : I think having a pure powerhouse in the back-up is a great idea. I might not do this if I use DD-Nite though!!

    Zoroark : I'm actually thinking I'll main-team this one. Quick and powerful is something I like.

    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

    Example Teams:
    (P= Physical, S=Special, M=Mixed)

    Arcanine(P) - Espeon(S) - Lucario(P) - Sceptile(S) - Sandslash(P) - Dragonite (M)
    ~
    Arcanine(P) - Espeon(S) - Zoroark(S) - Sceptile(S) - Sandslash(P) - Dragonite (M)
    ~
    Arcanine(P) - Espeon(S) - Heracross(P) - Zoroark(S) - Flygon(P) - Samurott(S)
    ~

    To be clear on the sets:

    Arcanine would be a Life-Orb
    Espeon would be a CM or CM+BP Set
    Lucario P would be as SD-Luke and S would be a Nasty Plot set.
    Zoroark would be Nasty Plot or Specs
    Sceptile would be Specs set
    Sandslash would be SDer
    Flygon would be CBer

    Espeon(S) : Magic Bounce is an awesome ability and getting a free Eevee early on with it's DW Ability is just the best. Earliest Hidden Hollow accessed by trading a Pokemon with Surf and finding it at Sangi Ranch.

    Lucario(P-S) : I'm not sure if I want a Physical or Special Lucario... Go mixed

    Sceptile(S) : Physical can work too

    Flygon vs. Sandlash (5th Spot) : Sandslash if you pick Dragonite. It learns Earthquake before the post-game, unlike Flygon

    Dragonite vs. Samurott (6th Spot) : Dragonite is better, imo. It can learn Surf, and ANY HM!

    ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~

    Heracross : The Best Buggy Poke Ever! If Lucario were Physical then I'd swap him up with Heracross from time to time. Good choice

    Galvantula : 90%+ Accurate Thunders!!? Even more accurate with Wide Lens

    Zoroark : I'm actually thinking I'll main-team this one. Quick and powerful is something I like. Mind that it's frail

    EDIT: Garchomp can't learn Dragon Dance. Derp. :P

    Thanks Nintend!

    I was actually having the same thoughts, but I have to say that what I may do is look into a Physical Serperior(Coil, Leaf Blade, Aqua Tail, Outrage) over Special Sceptile. I'm not entirely sure how we xfer pokemon between games for starters(though I know I can always have someone help me out with trading) and I like using Starter pokes. Plus I really want to give Serperior a fair shot and possibly use it in rotation later on in the game as well.

    If I do that then I'll use Sandslash and Dragonite, I'll want a useful moveset with Surf involved, but that can be left up to choice later. What I also might do is get Lapras later on for the spot over Dragonite(or at least rotate between them-Lapras is weaker, but it's a fun special attacker with Bolt-Beam/Surf & Filler).

    All that said I'd like to use Keldeo as well, but it depends on when it comes out and all.
