Darumaka has been performing fantastic for me, lots of OHKO's and everything. Pignite takes down his opponent in about two moves tops but he can take a hit, so it really doesnt matter that much. I want to know who will I get more grinding out of later in the game, Darminitan or Emboar? Please reply.

Darumaka lv.30 @ Charcoal
Nature Lonely
Ability Hustle

Facade
Fire Punch
Belly Drum
Thrash


Pignite lv26. @ Amulet Coin
Nature Hasty
Ability Blaze (Obviously)

Tackle (pokemon catching purposes)
Flame Charge
Arm Thrust
Rollout

Dont mind if I stop by and -BUMP-

I'm looking to train one as a fast special sweeper for the Battle Subway. I'll EV train it in Special Attack, Speed, and the rest on HP. Which one has the best potential?

All are Timid

Deino 1

I'd say Deino 2. All Hydreigon should care about is its Special Attack and Speed.

Is Beartic any good? I've been looking around the internet about him and alot of people dont like him so I'm a bit iffy..... But I guess I should ask the PokePros so is he a good Pokemon to have? I've tried to train a Vanillite but it gets OHKO'd by everything.

I'd say he wasn't that bad. It's just since you catch him quite late it'll be a pain to train. Plus he has a shallow movepool. But if you have the time and patience to train him up he can be a huge powerhouse with amazing attack and reasonable bulk. He'll pretty much ruin anything with Icicle Drop.

tldr; yes, get one.

So, basically, I need you guys to help me choose who to drop out of my party for an Axew. I was considering Pansage because I don't really have any more gyms that I'm challenging in which I need him (ice and dragon gyms left). Here's my party.

Lv 33. Joltik
Lv. 32 Excadrill
Lv. 34 Pansage
Lv. 37 Darminitan
Lv. 35 Archen
Lv. 28 Litwick (Soon to be replaced with Cubchoo)

Replace Pansage. It isn't very good against the last gyms.

Also, why are you replacing Litwick with Cubchoo? Sure, Beartic has high Attack and HP, but its movepool is pretty mediocre. You're better off keeping Litwick to battle Brycen, but you may have to grind it a bit.

Going with what PlatinumDude said, replace Pansage if you want. Keep Litwick cos even though it takes time to evolve, it becomes really awesome as a Chandelure. Replace Darmanitan cos you don't want two Fire-types, don't you?

May I suggest a Jellicent for you? It has good bulky stats with nice Sp. Attack backing it up. It's an amazing Water-type that I highly recommend cos it has good abilities too. Replace Darmanitan with Jellicent cos it's awesome and it can take a few hits.

Just get yourself a surfer, go to Driftveil City and you will find Frillish there. Catch one and train it up.

Keep Pansage, replace Darmanitan with Jellicent so that Litwick will serve as your Fire-type.

Going with what I say, you should eventually have this after all your Pokemon evolve:



It's up to your opinion if you want to go with what I say or if you want to change things.

P.S. I'm assuming your starter was Tepig? Cos of Pansage being present, am I right?

If you can get alot of Flying Gems, you can abuse them in the E4 using Acrobatics with Archeops.

Yes, Tepig was my starter, but I was getting more out of Darumaka at the time than with him. Also, was going to add Beartic to help against Iris, because if Axew gets hit, his HP would go down a chunk too. Also, Litwick is VERY slow.... I caught it at lv.28 with 15 Speed. So, I gave it a Macho Brace since it'll be going last anyways. Also, I plan on catching a Pawniard to help out in the Pokemon League... So, going with what you said, my team might look like this in the future....

Haxorus
Excadrill
Archeops (May be replaced with Pawniard since I only need him for Marshal and Excadrill pretty much has that covered)
Jellicent
Galvantula
Chandelure

I need one more pokemon to fill out my White team.

My team:
Darmanitan lvl 61
Sheer Force
-Flare Blitz
-Hammer Arm
-Earthquake
-Fire Punch

Braviary lvl 61
Sheer Force
-Fly
-Shadow Claw
-Crush Claw (Wondering whether or not to replace with Brave Bird)
-Rock Slide

Starmie lvl 66
Natural Cure
-Thunderbolt
-Psychic
-Ice Beam
-Surf

Hydreigon lvl 66
Levitate
-Crunch (Looking to replace)
-Hyper Voice
-Dragon Pulse
-Flamethrower

Metagross lvl 64
Clear Body
-Zen Headbutt
-Earthquake
-Meteor Mash
-Iron defense

I'd like to add a decent strength toward water. I've been thinking about Mismagius, Liligant, Rotom or Ampharos, but I'm not sure. I'm not a competitive player, so I'm not necessarily looking for unstoppable beasts.
Anyone have any ideas?

It's really good, but you get it late in the game.

Try to buy some X Attacks. When you think that EQ will only do half health damage, use X Attacks, while using Full Restores if needed to. Do this until her Hippowdown is out of EQ PP.

Your main weaknesses are fire and ground, so i suggest a dragon type, preferably flying too (Dragonite/Salamence), because any Dragon will resist fire, and flying dragons will resist ground too.

I'm not sure how you get all the dragons on B/W, but these are the ones i suggest;

Haxorus
Salamence
Dragonite
Hydreigon
Garchomp

I would totally suggest Haxorus. It's a great sweeper and it isn't the most difficult pokemon to level up, *cough* Hydreigon *cough*.

Has anyone ever used this set for mismagius before?
Mean Look
Perish Song
Baton Pass
Calm Mind

Just curious. If you used baton pass with someone with soundproof do you think it could work?

FYI, Mismagius can't learn Baton Pass. And that set no longer works in Gen V because trapping moves can't be BP'ed.

And, to answer your question, if Perish Song is BP'ed to a Soundproofer, then the effect of Perish Song applies to that Pokemon.
