    Exclamation Rate my Daimond Team?

    Hi. I'm thinking of starting an LPing career, and D/P/Pl are among my first considerations. I'm not much of a defensive player, I'm the guy that destroys stuff and gets it over with. Im not patient either, so I tend to stray away anything past Medium Slow growth rate(Starters).

    Infernape- A mixed Attacker
    Close Combat
    Grass Knot
    Flamethrower
    Earthquake

    Luxray- T Fang because of flinching/paralysis, plus higher attack stat
    Thunder Fang
    Iron Tail
    Strength
    Crunch

    Roserade- High Special Makes it deadly
    Energy Ball
    Shadow Ball
    Weather Ball
    Hidden Power- ???/could be weather changing move

    Gastrodon- good for the E4
    Muddy Water
    Sludge Bomb
    Ice Beam
    Mud Bomb

    Rampardos- highest base attack of all non legends, definately worth it!
    Zen Headbutt
    Head Smash/Stone Edge
    Brick Break
    Avalanche

    Lucario- Whats a Sinnoh Team without him
    Psychic
    Aura Sphere
    Shadow Claw
    Rock Slide

    Please tell me how I can improve. I want a very sucessful career, and don't want to fail epicly online. BTW im 13, turning 14 in April.

    If you have a problem with me, well, thats your problem

    I don't have much experience with the pokemon you're using, so I don't have any specific movesets (I'll let more experienced raters handle that), but I do have some overall advice.
    If you're playing online, you'll want to EV train your pokemon. I don't know if you already have, but if not, you should. If you don't, you will most likely get destroyed. So either post the EV spreads you're using, or look into it and figure out which spreads to use.
    Also, I know an all out offensive strategy is appealing, but from my experience, it's best to have some defense. If your opponent has a great sweeper that can hit all of your pokemon, the frailty of an all offensive lineup will make the sweep a piece of cake.
    Of course this is all my opinion, but I think it will be useful. Hope this was a little helpful!

    Everything EvilTyranitar said is correct.

    If you are using EV's Lucario can use 252 Speed / 252 Special Attack / 4 HP with Timid. Moveset can be Aura Sphere / Shadow Ball / Calm Mind / Substitute.

    Thanks for the advice, but im not really going competitive, so i wont really EV train them, unless I see that it needs improvement. I just want an ingame team that can destroy the elite4, plus the battle zone island. But can you recommend some defensive pokemon that still have okay offense, or a moveset (like Shuckle with Gyro Ball for example). And by online I mean like on youtube. Like Chuggaconroy does basically, not competitively, as I mentioned before.

    How can I get Earth Power for Gastrodon? Is it a move tutor thing, do I have to transfer it to Soulsilver?

    You can get it from the move tutor at the battle frontier in Soul Silver. It costs 40BP

    Earthquake is okay too , if you can't get it. If you're talking Defense then Gastrodon is decently bulky. Earthquake / Waterfall / Toxic / Protect is viable.

    If you have access to platinum it is easier to get.
