Well, they key for almost any in-game battle is to level up your Pokmon higher than their's, and carry some good items. Which battle in particular are you having difficulty with? How many badges/how far in the game are you?

-you can try using other pokemon against Treecko/Grovyle (it'll never be a Sceptile sadly...)

-level up (usually that's the problem... too low level)

-stock up on revives, and other potions

-only the last time you fight the rival will s/he have Leaf Blade. All the other time it's absorb all the way... (absorb is a very weak move...)

If your mudkip evolved into a Mashtomp, then you'll have a doubleweakness to grass types. teach mashtomp or mudkip TM 13 (ice beam). Ice beam can be found on the abandoned ship in between Dewford and slateport. or you can buy it inthe Maulville cassino.

I think Pikagrrl is having problems at the first battle cause if its later you dont have to use your Mudkip/Marshtomp/Swampert My advice is to use a Numel or Torkal, or some other fire type you can get earlier in the game! If you mean the first battle against your Rival you should stay in the grass and battle wild Pokemon and trainers until Mudkips at a decent level! I hope that helped!

my advice for chiroo is to get your team at lv 60, at least!
and as for pikagirl, try using a flying type against grovile

Don't post twice in a row please, it's called double posting.

You can try around Victory Road, it takes a while but there aren't too many alternatives...

Chirooman.it's called "double-posting" and it isn't looked good upon in this forum...If you have to double post, you can instead edit your previous post...

k he is just new give him a break...

i do not suggest teaching it ice beam. It's rather a waste of money to me... Swampert is wasting EV, money and an attack slot to use ice beam. Put EV is attack and sp.def, and just stick in mirror coat (if you don't want curse+earthquake combo.) Since it's just a computer, it cannot resist but to unleash its grass attack (leafblade/absorb) against you. As long as you survive, the opponent will be KO by mirror coat. Just use rest afterward to regain all needed hp.

Or simply level up. It's fun using a modest Sceptile to quick attack Combusken to death ^_^

It changes their Pokblock preference as well as modifying their stats. All personalities except neutral ones up a stat by 10%, and lower a different one by 10%.
