Feel like taking some dust off Platinum while waiting for gen VI...
Just using a bunch of stuff I never tried out, team might change and I need a sixth, but not sure on what to use yet.
Also about held items, I'm near clueless on what you find and when, so any suggestion is appreciated.
Nothing special, I'd go pure physical but I don't like Flare Blitz recoil ingame. U-Turn cause I play on Set and it comes in handy.
Rock Blast/Stone Edge
Stealth Rock/Double Edge
With RP it's fast enough to outspeed a lot of stuff and Rock/Ground STAB sounds appealing. Last move is just a filler.
Never had the chance to try Gyarados ingame past gen I. Not sure about the coverage moves though.
Again something I was curious to try out. Bug Bite if I'll bother using HGSS tutors. And again not sure about what to use on the last two slots.
Always get a fast Ice type to outspeed and OHKO Cynthia's Garchomp before he poops all over my team. I usually pick up Weavile but my team is mostly physical so yeah.
Need a sixth, and if something will be replaced it's probably gonna be Gyarados (I usually pick Empoleon as a starter, and other water types don't look that appealing). I was gonna pick Roserade then I remembered that this is not gen V and Giga Drain only has 60 BP, but I'm still considering it. Any suggestions?
