    Default Team for Emerald

    Here's the team I have in mind for emerald, I really need suggestions for a more balanced out team. So, here it is.

    Typhlosion, Timid, Lum Berry
    Flamethrower
    Thunderpunch
    Focus Punch
    Substitute

    Groudon, Jolly, Leftovers
    Rock Slide
    Earthquake
    Overheat
    Swords Dance

    Slaking, Adamant, Choice Band
    Double-Edge
    Shadow Ball
    Earhquake
    Aerial Ace

    Milotic, Bold, Leftovers
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Recover
    Toxic

    Latios, Timid, Soul Dew
    Dragon Claw
    Thunderbolt
    Surf
    Calm Mind

    Metagross, Adamant, Choice Band
    Shadow Ball
    Sludge Bomb
    Meteor Mash
    Earthquake


    Okay, the first things that you probably notice wrong with this team is:
    1. Repetitive Items
    2.Movesets for the pokemon

    I'm pretty sure you know how to use the sets. So, go on. Rate it.

    Thanks for the help!
    Eon Bird Trainer/Metagross Breeder

    Metagross is modeled after a carnivourus arachnid, has a stomach on it's belly, can levitate as opposed to spinning webs...

    I'm arachnidphobic, yet I still like Metagross. Thank goodness it doesn't have eight eyes or legs. But then it'd have eight brains.


    I would insert an image here- but my computer doesn't want to cooperate.

    What to never do to an Eon Bird or a Metagross: Make it mad. Especially a Metagross.

    The SubFocus is good, another set to better cover your weaknesses could be...

    Flamethrower
    Earthquake
    HP Flying/Grass/Water
    Sunny Day/Thunderpunch


    Groudon, Jolly, Leftovers
    Rock Slide/Brick Break
    Earthquake
    Overheat
    Swords Dance/Bulk Up

    Groudon's blessed with high Attack and Defense, so Bulk Up could be used to tank as well as boost your Attack. Earthquake and Overheat work well with STAB, and Brick Break is good for another physical attack.


    Slaking, Adamant, Choice Band
    Double-Edge
    Shadow Ball
    Earhquake
    Aerial Ace

    Not much to say here, perhaps you could fir Focus Punch in there somewhere...maybe instead of Aerial Ace.
    I'll let someone else take care of the rest. Hope it helps! Comments in bold.

    SPN said it pretty well for the first three, so, so as to not be repetitive, I'll only do the last few with the note that the Sub-Punching Typhlosion set that you use gives you the best type coverage.

    MILOTIC @ Leftovers
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Recover
    Toxic

    In a word: yes! Some people prefer Hypnosis over Toxic, but with Milotic's staying power and especially a Bold nature Milotic will stick around enough to reap the benefits of Toxic.

    LATIOS @ Soul Dew
    Recover
    Thunderbolt
    Surf / Ice Beam
    Calm Mind

    Dragon Claw has no resistances, but it's only effective on one type- which, half the time, it won't hurt much, especially based off of a Timid nature. Recover is pretty much de rigeur for both Lati_s. You could go Ice Beam over Surf as a Dragon counter.

    METAGROSS @ Choice Band
    Unless I miss my guess, your Metagross set is standard.

    Your team covers its own bases quite well.

    Typhlosion, Timid, Lum Berry
    Flamethrower/Fire Blast
    Thunderpunch
    Focus Punch
    Substitute

    Fire Blast is an option over Flamethrower

    Groudon, Jolly, Leftovers
    Rock Slide
    Earthquake
    Overheat
    Swords Dance

    I like it

    Slaking, Adamant, Choice Band
    Double-Edge
    Shadow Ball
    Earhquake
    Aerial Ace

    Cool

    Milotic, Bold, Leftovers
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Recover
    Hypnosis

    You definately want Hypnosis over Toxic

    Latios, Timid, Soul Dew
    Dragon Claw
    Recover
    Safegaurd
    Calm Mind

    Latios does fine with just a STABed Dragon Claw to attack with

    Metagross, Adamant, Choice Band
    Explosion
    Sludge Bomb/Rock Slide
    Meteor Mash
    Earthquake

    This is standard

    You should have at least one more tank besides Milotic.

    With a Timid nature? I'm not trying to attack you, but I'm curious to see if you have basis for this statement. It would be wonderful if a Timid Latios could pull that off but I'm not sure that it's capable. Do you have experience with such Latios or calculations to back that up? Because if this actually works, I'll definitely be restructuring my team...

    aerial ace on slaking is pointless

    stab DE = 180 power
    SE AA = 120 power
