I do know it's a pretty weak team but it's all i got so please help! T_T i saved on iris because elite four, i could barely beat them i must suck at this game because i can never defeat the games with champions in them sorry for the REALLY long thread i bet no one would read this X_X
Is it not acceptable to lose and train more?
Yeah, Champions can be beaten by using underleveled Pokémon but diversity is an important aspect...
Your team consists mainly of Fighting types... which is in fact very advantageous against Iris but half of your team is weak to EQ...
If possible, send Virizion against Haxorus, it shouldn't use EQ, and if it does, it won't give that big of a damage...
What you are clearly missing is the mentioned Ice Beam as you should have ice type attack against dragons.
Your Emboar has also poor moveset... 3 Fire attacks will be totally useless here.
Ash has basically got you covered, but yes you are lacking an Ice move which is vital for hitting Dragons super-effectively. Just remember that Azumarill has horrible Special Attack so Surf may not be that great other than being able to get around Iris' Aggron's high Defense. If yours has Huge Power definitely give it Ice Punch by trading in some Red Shards to the Move Tutor in Driftveil City.
Otherwise, replace it with a Starmie since you don't have any Special-based attackers on your team. If you do decide to go with Starmie, a good moveset should be Surf, Psychic, Thunderbolt and Ice Beam.
And as Ash said, having too many STAB moves on one Pokemon can render you at a disadvantage like with your Emboar there. You should also go to the Pokemon World Tournament and trade in a Heart Scale to learn Hammer Arm since your Emboar is lacking a Fighting STAB, and most of Iris' team has a bit of a Fighting weakness. In fact, 3 of her Pokemon are weak to Fighting.
Just remember that Iris' Haxorus carries Earthquake, which half your team are weak to.
put ice beam or blizzard in azumarill chenge hydro pump.and use your virizion cablion terakion to defeat lapras and aggron.
and go to mistralton city and teach your emboar hammer arm. you need heart scale. delete fire blast and heat crash. heat crash only deals lot of damage if your opponent is lighter, and fire blast is inaccurate. maybe, put different type in your moveset. moves that can defeat your pokemon's weakness. and if you can, try to level up your pokemon to level 55. Good Day.
