    What does HP flying mean? and where do you get the Scope Lens and Bright Powder and all the Leftovers?

    HP Flying=Hidden Power Flying. Too hard to get in game as the move depends on IV's (like genes of a pokemon that determine its strength).
    The truth is that I'm a bad person. But, that's gonna change - I'm going to change. This is the last of that sort of thing. Now I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life. I'm looking forward to it already. I'm gonna be just like you. The job, the family, the fucking big television. The washing machine, the car, the compact disc and electric tin opener, good health, low cholesterol, dental insurance, mortgage, starter home, leisure wear, luggage, three piece suite, DIY, game shows, junk food, children, walks in the park, nine to five, good at golf, washing the car, choice of sweaters, family Christmas, indexed pension, tax exemption, clearing gutters, getting by, looking ahead, the day you die.

    Perhaps get some Rare pokemon on the team eg Mewtwo or Rayquaza. But Apart from that I'd say it's a pretty decent party.

    I still don't get why everyone always recommends Leftovers for just about EVERY SINGLE Pokemon in the team. That's a crappy way to go anyways, plus it's cheap. Like Chaos952, you posted every hold item change to Leftovers...what's the point!?

    Anyways...yeah, I'd ditch the Mightyena, not really good enough for a strong team.

    Umbreon if you want a tank, Absol for a fast killer...both better than Mightyena in my opinion.

    Both Absol and Umbreon are physical attackers, though... they have lower Sp. Atk than mightyena, so dark type moves, even with STAB (the 1.5 boost for same type as the pokemon,) Dark typed moves are pretty useless. Not to mention the best one they can learn is Faint Attack (60 damage)

    These are the pokemon I'd reccommend to you:

    Metagross
    Latios/Latias
    Walrein
    Lapras
    Snorlax
    Tyranitar
    Heracross
    Eon Bird Trainer/Metagross Breeder

    Umbreon is nowhere close to being a physical attacker; it's a tank.

    LOL. You call Leftovers cheap? Leftovers is the best item in the game. You'll constantly be regaining health.

    Well, not cheap, and I know Leftovers is the best item, but I just kind of find it pointless to recommend a team full of Leftovers. That doesn't really help anyone.

    And what does everyone have against Double Team!? I mean, come on, it's not that bad. lol

    no it is that bad, it relys 100% on luck and 0% on skill

    while luck is a part of the game (well any game) it should in no way be encouraged in the way double team does.

    a complete newbie to pokemon could double team 6 times and beat someone who is a vet' which is completly stupid as without double team, the vet' would easily outskill the newbie.

    also

    you could double team once and never be hit, or double team 6 times and be hit every time, where is the skill involved there?

    oh and yeah leftovers is pretty pointless in-game, but it is invaluable in competitive battling

    1) drill peck + whirl wind is an illegal combo

    3) yes it can learn rock slide

    Hax items saved my life in the frontier, and you call them useless? And the Double Team and bright powder is a combo, better than to waste a move slot. Attacks are useless if they can't hit. Ever heard of a blissey moveset? Surprising since your avatar used to be blissey...

    A Blissey moveset is:
    Aromatheropy
    Softboiled
    Thunder Wave/Ice Beam
    Seismic Toss

    I don't see Double Team anywhere on there...:/

    Zootster, read the second post in this thread (what he suggested for Gardevoir).

    Double Team is a waste of a moveslot. Eontios, you know nothing about battling. You should download and play Netbattle and learn the ways of battling. You will eventually find out... the hard way.
