    Default Having trouble with the pwt

    like the title says, i'm having trouble with the pokemon world tounrament, the world leaders to be specific, i hope i don't have to raise completely new pokemon... if my team is seriously that bad i would like someone to let me know.

        Spoiler:- my team:


    well, i'm now rebuilding my team to the natures suggested:
    steps completed:
    1.catch a ditto
    2.hatched zoura with hardy nature
    3.caught a new marill and golduck
    4.successfully EV trained zoroark, placed 1st Pokemon into battle box
    5.hatched a marill with lonely nature (it was the closest i could get to adamant)
    6.caught a magnemite with mild nature (again, closest i could get to modest, i also changed its ability to sturdy)
    7.successfully EV trained marill, placed 2nd pokemon into battle box
    8.first world leaders win

    current goals:
    finish azumarill's moves
    find a held item for azumarill

    unfezant Adamant nature big pecks
    Return
    toxic
    Steel Wing
    fly

    Return does more damage than Quick Attack. Steel Wing so you're not walled by Rock-types. Adamant nature because Unfezant needs its speed to not be lowered.

    magnezone Modest nature magnet pull
    thunderbolt
    Charge Beam
    flash cannon
    substitute

    Go with Modest as your nature. If you want to run Substitute, run Charge Beam > Volt Switch, as Sub + Charge Beam can be used for boosting.

    lucario Mild nature inner focus
    Aura Sphere
    Ice Punch
    shadow ball
    Work Up

    Mild nature so you can go mixed, as Jolly reduces your Special Attack. Aura Sphere + Shadow Ball get perfect coverage. Ground and Fighting get similar coverage, so go with Ice Punch > Dig to hit Ground-types, who are Lucario's biggest threat. Work Up to boost both offences.

    serperior Adamant nature overgrow
    coil
    leaf blade
    Aqua Tail
    Outrage

    No point using the Mild nature if you're not going mixed. Aqua Tail and Outrage for better coverage.

    azumarill Adamant nature huge power
    Aqua Jet
    Return
    ice punch
    Brick Break / Superpower

    Bold is a horrible nature for Azumarill as it lowers its more important stat: attack. Aqua Jet for a very strong priority move. Brick Break or Superpower for coverage, and Return for neutral coverage.
    anyone suggest a change of moves? or is my pokemon choice so bad i have to make a completely new team?
    Comments in bold.

    You're going to want to rebreed all of your team to get better natures, since natures are important in things like the Subway and PWT (a 10% change to stats is quite significant). Also, you might want to list items and EVs if your Pokemon have any. Hope this helps.

    i don't know exactly how to find out EV's but i guess its unfortunate that i have to rebuild my entire team, so i guess it doesn't matter anyways

    for when i DO rebuild my team, what EV's should i focus on training?

    as far as items go i only have these ones:
    air balloon
    dark gem
    grass gem
    rocky helmet
    steel gem

    i also forgot my last pokemon:
    zoroark with hasty nature
    dark pulse
    flamethrower
    shadow claw
    nasty plot

    ah well, currently i plan to breed each of my party Pokemon until i have the natures zhanton suggested, then i will try to EV train them (as in giving the held item for the stat making it first and switching out to one of my tougher ones), and during that time try getting each of the moves suggested.

    also by the way, does anyone know how to find out exact EV values of a Pokemon? i don't feel like writing down stuff for each and every single encounter i fight.

    I don't see a point in a Dragon move on a non-Dragon type. It won't hit as hard as an SE hit. Replace it with Substitute. It will prevent status, something that can hamper his walling ability.

    nah, it's better to use Hasty/Naive to boost Speed, or Mild/Rash/Lonely/Naughty to boost offensive power. Zoroark is a glass cannon anyway, so it won't be bothered by its defense/sdef being lowered, since they're already low to begin with.

    In fact, N's Zorua you got during the storyline is a good one for Mixed set, it has Hasty Nature, and fixed to possess all 30 IVs.


    Zoroark
    Hasty Nature
    ~Night Daze
    ~Flamethrower
    ~Focus Blast/Low Sweep/Hidden Power (due to the all 30 IVs, its Hidden Power is Fight with 70 base power)
    ~Return/U-Turn

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    i gotten n's zoura and already used it throughout the storyline, meaning my EV's on it aren't really that well spent
