I'm waiting for my Pokemon Pearl to arrive in the mail and I'm already thinking about my team. It's the first time I'm playing the NDS games, I've only played Leaf Green and Sapphire before, that's why I'll need your help and suggestions, plus to tell me if there are any stronger pokemon that the ones I am planning to have, since I don't know all the new pokemon in the game.
So here's what I thought:
-Ninetales(planning to transfer vulpix from LG to Pearl)
I don't know what it looks to you but I like the Pokemon. Also should I get Jynx from Leaf Green instead of Alakazam?
Another thing I want to ask you about, is Leafeon. Many people suggest Roserade, but although Grass is my favorite Pokemon type, I don't like Roserade that much. From my research Leafeon is better at Attack, Defense and Speed, and Roserade is better in Sp Attack. I am checking some Grass type moves on Serebii.net and I want to know if Leafeon learns all of the following movest, or at least most of them:
I wanted to know if Leafeon learns these attacks because most of the are physical attack types (Leaf Blade, Power Whip, Seed Bomb & Wood Hammer), and the other two are special attack ones, but still strong. I have never owned Leafeon that's why I don't know what it does and does not learn.
Also are the 4 physical attack ones good as Leafeon's final moveset?
One more thing-if you transfer Pokemon from the GBA games (Leagreen, Emerald etc), to a DS game (Pearl or Heart Gold), does that count as trading and will it make certain pokemon evolve (such as Kadabra to Alakazam, Machoke to Machamp, etc)??
