    Default SoulSilver RMT

    Just started replaying SoulSilver for lols and decided to use some Pokemon I haven't used, or have very little experience with. Please no egg or BF moves.

    Meganium @ Leftovers
    Ability: Overgrow
    PoisonPowder
    Body Slam / Headbutt
    Petal Dance / Magical Leaf
    Synthesis / Aromatherapy

    I really like Meganium's versatility as a tank/wall. Unsure of which moves to use, aside from PoisonPowder.

    Noctowl @ ???
    Ability: Insomnia
    Extrasensory / Psychic
    Fly
    Roost
    ???

    I really want to like Noctowl, but HootHoot is rather difficult to train considering it doesn't get it's first special move till Lv22, after it has evolved. Extrasensory seems like a good placeholder till Psychic becomes available.

    Steelix @ Shell Bell
    Ability: Rock Head
    Double Edge
    Iron Tail
    Stone Edge
    Earthquake

    Rock Head is broken. Steelix's Atk stat is enough to deal serious damage and with Rock Head, Double Edge has no drawbacks (that I can think of).

    Heracross @ ???
    Ability: Guts
    Megahorn
    Brick Break / Close Combat
    Aerial Ace
    ???

    Really unsure about Heracross. As i've nevr used one, I can't deide on many moves.

    Lapras @ ???
    Ability: Water Absorb / Shell Armor
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Body SLam
    Thunderbolt

    Again, have no Idea how to use Lapras. Any advice.

    Tauros @ Silk Scarf
    Ability: Intimidate
    Strength
    Rock Slide
    ???
    ???

    Couldn't think of any other moves to fit. Any suggestions.

    Thanks, all advice will be greatly appreciated.
    Currently Looking For: Jolly Terrakion (NO EVs), DW Shroomish (FEMALE), DW Gligar (FEMALE). A large number of Ditto would be well appreciated, namely those with Calm, Timid, Jolly and Impish Natures.

    Meganium @ Leftovers
    Ability: Overgrow
    Toxic
    Body Slam
    Petal Dance
    Synthesis

    No need for PP when Toxic is better in like, every way.

    Shadow Ball or Heatwave would work on Noctowl.

    I would give Lapras Psychic or something over Body Slam.

    Tauros @ Leftovers/Life Orb
    -Return/Double Edge
    -Earthquake
    -Stone Edge/Rock Slide
    -Zen Headbutt

    Return for STAB or Rouble Edge if you dont mind the recoil, EQ and SE/RS for coverage, Zen Headbutt to cover fighting weakness

    Steelix @ Leftovers
    -Earthquake
    -Stone Edge/Rock Slide
    -Gyro Ball
    -Curse

    curse for even more defense, and the attack boost is nice. Steelix is so slow the speed drop won't change much, and will actually increase the damage from gyro ball. Gyro ball > iron tail as it's more accurate, and combined with his low speed, can rack up SERIOUS damage. In the BT i've had +6/+6/-6 (atk/def/spd) steelix OHKO metagross which would normally wall steelix, and when you think about steelix, who can easily have 500 def at lv 100, +6 defense means 500 X 300% = 1500 def.

    How about this for Noctowl:
    -Air Slash
    -Roost
    -Extrasensory/Psychic/Shadow Ball/Silver Wind/Heat Wave/Hypnosis
    -Extrasensory/Psychic/Shadow Ball/Silver Wind/Heat Wave/Hypnosis

    It's got a lot of options for In-game.

    Hercaross should use Close Combat instead of Brick Break for the greater power, and add Rock Slide instead of Aerial Ace. Swords Dance in the last slot.

    Meganium - You have some options. By nature meganium is defensive. Not really the greatest attacking stats or movepool, but it can be done. So if you want to go defensive, something like this would work.

    Meganium@Leftovers
    -Energy Ball
    -Synthesis
    -Aromatherapy/Light Screen/Reflect/Toxic
    -Aromatherapy/Light Screen/Reflect/Toxic

    Or if you want to go more offensive (as strange as this sounds) You'll want to go physical with Meganium, as the only way it can do decent damage is with Swords Dance

    Meganium@Leftovers
    -Seed Bomb/Razor Leaf (since you said no bf moves)
    -Earthquake
    -Swords Dance
    -Synthesis/Body Slam/Iron Tail

    Thanks for the advice guys! After reviewing the team, I've realised the team share huge weakness to Fighting and to a lesser extent Ice. To partially counteract this, I've decided to drop Tauros in favour of Hypno:

    Hypno @ ???
    Ability: Insomnia
    Psychic
    Calm Mind
    Thunderwave
    Shadow Ball

    Also, the reason Meganium doesn't have Toxic is that it is a BF move.
