Other than that if you want advice on movesets, items, abilities and what not, even if you'll only be "complete" with a fair amount of grinding [for items] or by end game, it's cool
I was kinda thinking about Lucario, Umbreon, and Espeon (or Reuniclus). The other three depend on what I pick as my starter. If I pick Oshawott, I'm thinking Leavanny and Darmanitan as my other two. But I don't have any idea really which starter to choose. I'm not a big fan of any of the starters. Any opinions would be appreciated.
Don't use Surf on Beartic, instead make grab a Water type. Vaporeon is a great choice as it has a pretty decent in-game movepool and hits fairly hard as well. Golduck is also available pretty early and a Calm Mind Set rules on it.

Superpower/Brick Break on Darmanitan is never recommended when it has Earthquake.
It's the usual "Fight & Ground shares similar coverage" thing.
If it has Superpower, then Earthquake must be replaced with Rock Slide. But Superpower is not affected by Sheer Force, and it may have to switch out due to the Attack & Defense drop.
If it has Brick Break, well Rock Slide completely outclass BB in terms of coverage AND damage (RS with Sheer Force boost has almost 100 base power).
To be honest, if you ask me I personally prefer Earthquake instead of Superpower, I dislike the Attack & Defense drop of Superpower.
So mine would look like this:
Darmanitan @ Life Orb
Adamant/Jolly Nature, Sheer Force ability
~Fire Punch/Flare Blitz
That is the standard set.
I haven't seen the new Unova dex yet so I don't know what all can be caught so I'm breeding my team right now in my White. Once I get the C-Gear I'll trade them over.
Right now my team is (final evolution):
Arcanine or Blaziken (can't decide)
And I need a sixth Pokemon. Any suggestions?
I'm giving my Pokemon's movesets some thought, any help is appreciated.
Note: I'm not changing any of my Pokemon, or Wigglytuff's moveset. But anything else is up for alterations.
Wigglytuff (M): Biggles
Item: Expert Belt
I just love this moveset idea. It may not be the best but It'll be great fun.
Umbreon (M): Padfoot
My main wall. Payback is a damage doer, Toxic and Confuse Ray are to wittle enemies down and Quick Attack is to finish them and give some kind of coverage.
Octillery (M): Gatling
Special Beast. Surf and Ice Beam are standard, Signal Beam gives Grass coverage and Psybeam helps with my team's Fighting weakness.
Camerupt (F): Sally
Mixed Attacker. Yawn's not great, I know, but this is why I'm seeking help!
Altaria (F): Soprana
Personally I prefer a Special Altaria, but my team needs Physical Attackers.
I've never actually used Magnemite, funnily enough. Anyway, Light Screen is really just filler.

Opponent sent out Ninetales!
Me: I know! Fight fire with fire!
Arcanine used Flare Blitz!
Ninetales's Flash Fire made it useless....
Planned White 2 Team:
Biggles Magneto Sally
Soprana Padfoot Gatling
Wigglytuff really shouldn't be doing what you want it to...Why don't you try Life Orb Clefable? It gets Magic Guard so no recoil and can attack better.
If not, just have fun.

@cascade May I ask what movesets you're running on Garchomp and Jellicent?
Ability: Sand Veil
Ability: Cursed Body
I ended up deciding to go with Hone Claws over Fire Fang for Garchomp because Rock Slide already covers it's weakness to Ice, not to mention the raised accuracy you get from Hone Claws helped with Dragon Rush and Rock Slide. They hit every time for me after 1 hone Claws.
How come you asked for Garchomp and Jellicent Specifically?

Can anyone help me with my team :
Is this team weak ? Or will it need to replace some pokemon to make it better ? And can you suggest me some good moves for them ?
I'm thank you so much . :-)
I did notice just by looking at your Pokemon's types, (because I don't know their movesets) that your team doesn't cover Electric, Psychic, or Ghost Pokemon. So I would definitely teach some of your team moves like Earthquake/Dig/Shadow Ball/Crunch/Bug Buzz/etc. to cover all the different types of Pokemon. You might also consider teaching one of your Pokemon an Ice move to help take out Dragons. I know Salamence is Super-Effective against Dragons, but it's also weak against them, so it's better to have a back-up plan just in case something happens to Salamence. I hope this helped. Good luck.

In-game name: Daniel
I have an Electric Safari: Dedenne, Helioptile, and Luxio.
Long time lurker checking in finally. I think I've got a pretty good grasp on in game coverage, but I do miss obvious stuff. I plan on breeding these in White, and sendinf them over as soon as I can.
Generally I just go with Adamant and Modest natures in game, power over speed, but I do have Dittoes with all natures.
-Stone Edge/Rock Slide
-Fire Fang/Cross Poison
-Aqua Tail/Swords Dance
-Night Daze/Dark Pulse
-Grass Knot/Nasty Plot
-Shadow Ball/Confuse Ray
-Night Slash/Sucker Punch
should i use golurk or krookodile, i love both of their designes, i love dark and ground types and i wasent to fond of ghost types till gen 4/5 and i really like both of them, so i would like to hear your opinion thank you
@Cascade because I'm planning my mono-E4 teams and I've always likee Garchomp and have never used Jellicent.
I should warn you though you can't get Glaceon until Post-game and you can't get Golurk until all the way until Victory Road, so maybe you should go with Krookodile after all...At least until you are able to get Golruk.
