Never been to this part of Serebii before... Anywho, I decided to play Platinum again, and being myself I had to plan EVERYTHING out before starting, but I'm not focusing on items or natures. Just beat Fantina a.k.a. one of the easiest leaders ever. Here's the team(when it is finished):
I don't really have HM Slaves... but I might put Ice Fan over Surf and just get a bidoof. Floatzel is the Revenge Killer.
Again with Bidoof. Rock Smash hits what Earthquake doesn't, and Cut is just neutral coverage. Kind of physical wall.
Iron Tail/Fire Fang/Ice Fang
Charge is always useful, and Iron Tail is for coverage(very little but) as is Fore Fang and Ice Fang. Physical Attacker
Special Wall. And Staraptor is too mainstream.
Energy Ball/ThunderBolt/Shadow Ball
Special Sweeper. I know Azelf is "legendary" but it is my favorite psychic type and I only consider it a "half legendary".
There are those who follow Smogon and those who follow Karen, people who raise their Pokemon and people who catch 'em wild. There are competitive battlers and breeders.
But none of that really defines Pokemon. What defines it is your very first Charmander or Mudkip or Turtwig. What defines it is that team that grew from that, the journey you went on. It's about learning about branch evolutions and held items. Those glitches and lies you'd tell about Pikablu and getting behind Bill's house. It's about a community that has become worldwide. It's about this community, one that you're a part of as you read this very board.
