    Default Help building/balancing my team (Black 2)

    Hey!
    I'm new here and I was wondering if you guys could help me by suggesting some way of balancing my team to deal with the Elite 4 and the rest of the game (currently at Victory Road). I know it's not hard to beat the main storyline, but I just wanna be prepared and I feel like I'm missing something here.

    *Some things you should know:
    - I do not EV train before competitive.
    - I use the first specimen I encounter of the pokemon I want for my team. (I don't care for natures atm)
    - Keep in mind that I haven't finished the game yet, so there's a lot of TMs I don't have acces to.
    - I don't care if I have to train a whole team from scratch, I just wanna have fun LOL.

    Here's my current team:

    Emboar @ Charcoal
    Lvl. 63

    Arm Thrust
    Flamethrower
    Flare Blitz
    Head Smash


    Haxorus @ Draco Plate
    Lvl. 61

    Swords Dance
    Earthquake
    Dragon Claw
    Aerial Ace


    Flygon @ Expert Belt
    Lvl.60

    Earthquake
    Rock Slide
    Dragon Claw
    Fly


    Darkrai @ Leftovers
    Lvl. 65

    Hypnosis
    Faint Attack
    Nightmare
    Thunderbolt


    Lucario @ Scope Lens
    Lvl. 60

    Close Combat
    Swords Dance
    Dragon Pulse
    Aura Sphere


    Samurott @ Mystic Water
    Lvl. 64

    Aqua Tail
    Ice Beam
    Hydro Pump
    Surf

    Other pokemon I have trained and/or have access to:
    Mewtwo
    Lugia
    Ho oh
    Togekiss
    Zoroark
    Eevee
    Gyarados
    Gengar
    Snorlax
    Sharpedo
    Omanyte (DW)
    Aggron - Iron Tail, Thunder, Surf, Iron Head.
    Escavalier - Bug Buzz, Fury Cutter, False Swipe, Headbutt.
    Kabutops (DW) - Aqua Jet, Endure, Flail, Slash.
    Golduck - Disable, Zen Headbutt, Aqua Tail, Surf.

    THANK YOU!!!!

    [First Edit: added Samurott to party, updated pokemon Lvl., Zoroark got Flamethrower]
    [Second Edit: updated pokemon Lvl. and movesets, league beaten]
    [Third Edit: added Darkrai to party (replaced Zoroark), updated pokemon Lvl. and moves.]

    Well, after you defeat the E4, try getting these.


    Lucario
    Hasty/Naive Nature
    ~Work Up
    ~Bullet Punch
    ~Shadow Ball
    ~Aura Sphere


    Zoroark
    Hasty Nature (I assume this one is evolved from N's Zorua)
    ~Night Daze/Dark Pulse
    ~Flamethrower
    ~Focus Blast/Low Sweep
    ~Return/U-Turn/Aerial Ace


    Emboar
    Mild/Rash Nature
    ~Scald
    ~Flamethrower
    ~Brick Break
    ~Wild Charge/Rock Slide


    Haxorus
    Adamant Nature, Mold Breaker ability
    ~Dragon Dance
    ~Dragon Claw
    ~Rock Slide
    ~Earthquake


    Flygon
    Mild/Rash Nature
    ~Flamethrower
    ~Rock Slide
    ~Earthquake
    ~Dragon Claw


    regarding Flygon & Haxorus, they have similar set, the only difference is that one can go Mixed, the other can't, one gets STAB on EQ, the other does not.
    So maybe replace one of them with something else.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    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.

    Chandelure is always helpful for me.

    Flygon and Haxorus on the same team might not be a good idea, since Iris' Dragon Pokemon can attack you with Dragon moves.

    Thanks for the replies!

    lollygag: Which one would you replace? what would you recommend as a substitute?

    ?

    Btw, I now have a samurott as a 6th, but need a better moveset.

    Samurott @ Mystic Water

    After the E4 when you want to beat Iris again, just run this set:
    Haxorus @ Life Orb/Draco Plate
    Ability: Mold Breaker
    Moves:
    Dragon Dance
    Earthquake
    Brick Break
    Dragon Claw

    Just set up a few X Defends and X SpDs, live the hit, use DD once, and proceed to OHKO her whole team (minus Aggron) with Dragon Claw. Before fighting Haxorus, make sure you DD once more, then finish it off.
    In order to understand my train of thoughts,
    you'll have to put yourself in my position. You can't expect me to think like you because my life ain't like yours; You know what I'm sayin?

    You could give Emboar Wild Charge or Lucario T-Punch to help with water types.

    What do you think about adding Darkrai to party? I already did, so what would you do for his moveset?

    Thank you!

    Definitely replace Darkrai's Hypnosis with Dark Void when it learns the move. Dark Void is much better than Hypnosis.
