View Full Version : Trying Emerald Again

February 6th, 2010, 12:48 PM
Hey, I am trying again on my emerald file, with the intention of getting a latios for the battle tower. Here is the team I am planning on making for the battle tower, could you guys tell me whats wrong with it, or what to improve? I want to get at least 52 straight wins.

Metagross - Impish
@Shell Bell
252 HP / 16 Atk / 164 Def / 64 SpD / 12 Spe
~ Meteor Mash
~ Earthquake
~ Rest
~ Sleep Talk

Swampert - Relaxed
252 HP / 136 Def / 120 SpA

Ice Beam

Latios -???
@ Lum Berry
Dragon Dance
Sadow ball

I want to be able to reuse this on the platinum battle tower, so any help fixing this team would be aprreciated.

AgiliGross could replace your bulky RestTalk Gross here very efficiently.

Metagross - Adamant
@Shell Bell
252 Atk / 96 Spe / 160 HP (252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP)
~ Meteor Mash
~ Earthquake
~ Explosion
~ Agility

Agility and you become faster than anything and then just sweep. If on low HP, explode.

The set doesn't quite work as well in platinum, but a heckload more stuff does. Everything here (http://www.smogon.com/dp/tiers/ou) can give a load of trouble to the Battle Frontier.

The rest of it's alright, but there's an incredibly godly Alakazam set that you might want to think about.

Alakazam - Modest
Fire Punch
Ice Punch
Calm Mind/Recover/Thunder Punch

Because these moves are special in RS, it makes Alakazam a god. Especially after one Calm Mind.
