    Default Choosing Pokemon for Battle Tower Team.

    Okay, so over the last few years of playing Pokemon Emerald on and off, I've decided I'm finally going to get to a 100 win streak in the Battle Tower.
    I've EV trained a large amount of Pokemon over the past few years, and I wanted to know which ones could make a reliable team. Feel free to add new Pokemon to the list, changing movesets on existing ones and adding holdable items:

    Those are probably the ones worth mentioning. Please tell me which would make a reliable team. I don't mind adding a new Pokemon, changing movesets and EV training all over again.

    The thing is, that the battle frontier randomly picks pokemon teams that througly counter yours.
    (I once entered an sunny day team, and my opponent had 3 poks with all of them having rain dance :S)
    With that in mind I'll say:

    Latios - Milotic - Metagross.


    Latios gets great coverage this way and should be the core of your team, latios with calm mind is overated anyway in 3gen.
    Metagross should block poks like Tauros who might have an chance to kill Latios in one hit, while milotic can toxic stallers like Snorlax, even metagross can defend against snorlax if he doest wear earthqauke.

    In my expercience though, its best to have one with ROAR.
    the haxx factor is huge in the battle frontier and you'll come across lots of double teamers.

    Good luck
