    Default White 2 Team Help

    I'm trying to figure out my team. This is what I have so far:

    Samurott (modest) LVL 51
    -Slash
    -Aqua tail
    -Water pulse
    -Aqua jet
    Darmanitan (jolly) LVL 51
    -Fire punch
    -Flare blitz
    -Hammer arm
    -Superpower
    Ampharos (impish) LVL 52
    -Discharge
    -Charge
    -Thunderpunch
    -Power Gem
    Flygon (modest) LVL 51
    -Dragonbreath
    -Rock Slide
    -Crunch
    -Earth Power

    I just left Team Plasma's boat and am about to head into the Giant Chasm. I'm also willing to make changes. Help please!

    Level them up!

    I would add a special sweeper, like a ghost or dark pokemon, maybe psychic.
    Since you're playing White, you have easy access to Solosis . I've always wanted that pokemon for in-game battles from early game.
    For the sixth member I'd do Lilligant with Quiver Dance and Petal Dance (own tempo ability<- necessary).

    -Ice Beam
    -Surf
    -Aqua jet / Return / Superpower / X-Scissor

    Modest Nature increases your Special Attack by 10% and decreases your Attack by 10%, so if possible you want to stick with only Special moves. Surf as your STAB move as it's powerful and reliable. You definitely don't need three Water-type moves. Grass Knot and Ice Beam for coverage. You likely won't be using your fourth move much (and iirc, apart from Hidden Power, Samurott doesn't get any other Special moves outside of breeding) so you can stick with Aqua Jet for priority if you want.

    Darmanitan (jolly) LVL 51
    -Fire punch
    -Flare blitz
    Rock Slide
    -Earthquake


    No need for two Fighting-type moves, and they both cripple you so go with Rock Slide (gets Sheer Force boost) and Earthquake for QuakeSlide coverage. You can use Bulldoze until you get the EQ TM.

    Ampharos (impish) LVL 52
    -Thunderbolt
    -Signal Beam
    -Thunderwave
    -Power Gem / Flash Cannon

    Better coverage with this set. Thunderwave helps with your low Speed.

    Flygon (modest) LVL 51
    -Dragonbreath / Draco Meteor
    -Giga Drain
    -Flamethrower
    -Earth Power

    Again, Modest nature boosts Special Attack and reduces Attack, so you're stuck with Special moves. Dragonbreath and Draco Meteor are your only STAB options. Flamethrower for coverage and Giga Drain for healing.


    You're going to want two more Physical Pokemon imo. Two solid Physical Pokemon are Haxorus and Braviary.

    Haxorus
    ~ Dragon Dance
    ~ Dragon Claw
    ~ Rock Slide
    ~ Earthquake

    Fairly basic set. Dragon Dance for boosting, Dragon Claw for a reliable STAB and Rock Slide + Earthquake for QuakeSlide coverage.

    Braviary
    ~ Hone Claws
    ~ Fly
    ~ Rock Slide
    ~ Shadow Claw / Return

    Hone Claws for boosting, Fly for STAB. Rock Slide gets great coverage alongside Fly, and your last move is coverage.
