hello everyone. whilst i am new to this forum site, i am a pokemon veteran and have used seribbi.net a long time. despite me having played pokemon for ages and having a variety of the games, i only just became aware of the classifications of pokemon yesterday *n00b mistake lol* such as sweeper, tanks, walls, clerics/healers, spikers, hazers/pseudo-hazers, baton passers etc. Now, i am thinking of going into wi-fi battles, but since i have only played pokemon with myself, my brothers and my cousins, i have trained my pokemon with POWER POWER POWER, meaning i have no strategic teams. quick update: as EvilTyranitar pointed out, i have not listed if i am EV training. i am, so please also give me your views on which EVs i should train for which pokemon.
here is the team i am hoping to eventually have:
Metagross lvl 100 @ Quick Claw: (physical sweeper)
Thunderpunch/Zenn Headbutt/Bullet Punch
Blastoise lvl 100 @ Shell Bell: (tank/wall)
Blissey lvl 100 @ Leftovers: (wall)
Forretress lvl 100 @ Shed Shell: (wall/spiker/spinner)
Skarmory lvl 100 @ Shed Shell: (sweeper/spiker) ? (should I keep?)
Alakazam lvl 100 @ Choice Specs: (sweeper) ? (should I keep?)
my current team is all either low level, pre-evolved or without the correct movesets. i do have a stronger team but it would not give me an advantage since they are all sweepers.
My three questions are:
Should I keep Skarmory or replace him with a different Pokemon?
What should I swap Alakazam for? (I have an espeon, but i was thinking either
Infernape, Dragonite (with both Draco Meteor and Outrage) or other
Would anyone be willing to trade me a Salamance for my second team, as i cant be bothered to wait 110 days on HG and i dont want to wait forever to find a bagon in Diamond.
And lastly, would anyone give me advice on my movesets, items etc?
My Reserve/ second team is: typhlosion, lvl 70 sweeper, Moltres, lvl 50 sweeper, Arceus, lvl 100 tank, Lugia lvl 76 sweeper, and charizard lvl 36 (shiny) sweeper (i love fire types, but i also have sceptile, blastoise and feraligatr)
may thanks, THEIRONDONUT
