Hi Guys, I've gotten very bored and sick of the 4th and 5th generation pokemon games. So, i went through my GBA box and found my emerald and fire red games. I've played leaf green 100 times, so i didnt want to follow the same story line again. So, i want to start playing Emerald. I need help with my team and im not so sure if i should use a starter. So far the plan is:
Lets Assemble the team first, then figure out the moves
Has a much better move pool and tm's able to learn than Sceptile and Swampert. Has a good coverage for a fire-type, and a overall nice starter. I tend to not really use my starter.
Don't really like this pokemon, just want to use him as a HM slave for surf. Very helpful Pick-Up ability though.
I used to love this amazing beauty, but after a while i kept using her. And she's been getting more and more boring. Fun pokemon to use through.
Love CRAWDAUNT 65% he's in my team. Just a typical fave hoenn region pokemon.
- Thinking of/ FUN pokes
i really dont know who to put in my team at all. Help me make my team .
Movesets and items as well guys. Battle frontier tactics tips using this team if possible.
No legendaries or traded/evolved pokemon.
Added Help Info (cantab):
You might be better off asking in a thread. It's been a while since I played Emerald.
If it's just for a story run then it doesn't matter that much what you use. That said, I'd tip Torchic as the best starter. Mudkip is OK but once it evolves to Marshstomp it gets a 4x grass weakness which makes it a bit too easily KOed sometimes. I'm not a fan of grass types in general, though there's nothing particularly wrong with Treecko.
A Zigzagoon with Pickup is worth having, just remember to regularly check it and take the item off. You can raise it to battle and it does OK, or just use it for a HM mule.
Skarmory's not bad, takes hits like a champ. If you're not using a grass type you will want an electric, and Magnemite's a good pick, the resistances the steel typing brings it are always nice.
Abra's done well in every game I've used it in. Even if you can't trade to fully evolve it Kadabra has plenty enough power.
Don't be tempted by Sableye, its stats are rubbish.
