    Default The Missing Member - Platinum RMT

    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
    Ability: Torrent
    Surf
    Flash Cannon
    Ice Beam
    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 @ ???
    Ability: Blaze
    Flamethrower
    Shadow Claw
    Close Combat / Brick Break
    Thunder Punch

    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
    Earthquake
    Stone Edge
    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 @ ???
    Ability: Levitate
    Shadow Ball
    Energy Ball
    Thunder
    Focus Blast

    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
    Dragon Claw
    Fly
    Earthquake
    Dragon Dance

    OR

    Togekiss @ Leftovers
    Ability: Serene Grace
    Aura Sphere
    Water Pulse
    Psychic
    Fly

    As for my sixth member, I have very little to go on. I was thinking of using Gardevoir, Espeon or Porygon-Z. Any ideas?

    Go with Togekiss

    Togekiss
    -Nasty Plot
    -Aura Sphere
    -Air Slash
    -Roost

    Infernape@Focus Sash
    -Close Combat
    -Grass Knot
    -Stone Edge
    -Overheat

    Empoleon
    -Surf
    -Ice Beam
    -Earthquake
    -Drill Peck

    Espeon
    -Psychic
    -Calm Mind
    -Baton Pass
    -Substitute

    Physical Stats for espeon are considerably very low such as attack and defense so this set should take advantage of its high special stats

    One problem I've just realised I have is that Espeon and Togekiss are friendship evos (Togepi - Togetic). I really don't want to have to grind up friendship so I suppose I'll go with Altaria. I've came up with potential movesets for Porygon-Z and Gardevoir.

    Porygon-Z @ ???
    Ability: Adaptability
    Tri Attack
    Signal Beam / Shadow Ball
    Psychic
    Hyper Beam / Thunderbolt

    OR

    Gardevoir @ ???
    Ability: Synchronize
    Psychic
    Shadow Ball
    Thunderbolt / Grass Knot
    Calm Mind

    Altaria then? I have 2 sets for him.

    Staller Set
    Altaria@Leftovers
    -Rest
    -Sing
    -Perish Song
    -Protect

    Spec Sweeper
    Altaria@Leftovers
    -Dragon Pulse/Dragon Breath
    -Flamethrower/Fire Blast
    -Ice Beam/Blizzard
    -Hidden Power

    Gardevoir
    -Psychic
    -Calm Mind
    -Willo-Wisp
    -Hidden Power
    To be honest your Gardevoir looks like more of a supporter but a calm mind can be great when used at the right time

    How does this look like a Staller?

    Spec Sweeper
    Altaria@Leftovers
    -Dragon Pulse/Dragon Breath
    -Flamethrower/Fire Blast
    -Ice Beam/Blizzard
    -Hidden Power

    Actually half decent.

    Gardevoir
    -Psychic
    -Calm Mind
    -Willo-Wisp
    -Hidden Power

    Shadow Ball > WoW and Focus Miss > Hidden Power.

    DD Altaria is the best it can manage. Dragon Claw / Dragon Dance / Earthquake / Aerial Ace.

    Actually I have no idea, as people who are smart know that it is not a Suicide Lead.
