Okay, I've been skimming this thread for a bit and many people suggest Aegislash as a Must-Have! I just started on Pokémon Y with Chespin and I see that many of the people that started with Chespin also has added Squirtle to their team. I for one likes to use just 1 starter pokemon and therefor don't want to have Squirtle in my team.
About Aegislash: How early is it obtainable? It evolves with a Dusk Stone right? What is the earliest point I can get that stone?
The rest of the team, what would be a nice balanced team without it being too standard?
