I just started to play Platinum again and tried to build my team around the three starters. However, I've hit a wall when it came to my sixth member. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Please no egg or BF moves.
Empoleon @ Leftovers
Drill Peck / Signal Beam
This is the set I always use on Empoleon. The last move is a case of do I prepare to counter a type I would try to avoid sending Empoleon against (Fighting) or give it a move to counter Psychics and Darks.
Infernape @ ???
Close Combat / Brick Break
I seem to always avoid using the Fire starter. I assume this is a good set. It's not that I don't think Infernape needs set up, but it lacks any kind of bulk to do so.
Torterra @ Quick Claw
Razor Leaf / Giga Drain
Crunch / Strength / Rock Polish
Torterra is very interesting. It has bulk, but it can also deal out some powerful attacks. May use Strength, to clear up room on Hm slaves.
Gengar @ ???
I don't know why, but I've always liked Gengar. His Speed and Sp. Atk means he will deal some heavy damage to anything that isn't Blissey, Shuckle and Deoxys-D.
Here's where I started to struggle with members. I came up with two potential members, but can't choose between them.
Altaria @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
Togekiss @ Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace
As for my sixth member, I have very little to go on. I was thinking of using Gardevoir, Espeon or Porygon-Z. Any ideas?
