Just challenged the E4 in Platinum, but lost. I went in with the same team I'd been using:

Staraptor
Torterra
Luxray
Gallade
Houndoom
Vaporeon

All were at level 50 going in, which I knew was underleveled, but I wanted to see how they'd do. They actually made it all the way through the E4 and most of the way through Cynthia, but between her Garchomp and her Lucario, they just couldn't quite pull it off. So now we're going to go grind some more - I'm shooting for about level 54 or so - then we'll try again.

My team is probably really bad lol but it's got some of my favorites

Feraligatr lv76
Dragonite lv56
Snorlax lv 52
Tentacruel lv 41
Jolteon lv31
Houndoom (I haven't got him yet but I plan to before i challenge Red again)

I'm grinding right now, trying to get all of them around level 70 so I can try and beat Red again. The tentacruel I don't really use in battle, he's more of an HM slave

Although the show itself is great, it has a long way to go before it can live up to the Last Airbender. But I believe Korra can save Nickelodeon.

I'm doing Platinum again, and I almost got all of my team members. This is my planned team:
Torterra
Shiny Staraptor (I actually wasn't planning on using this Pokemon at first. After Dawn gave me some Pokeballs, I ran into a Shiny Starly as one of my first few wild encounters, and decided I must use it on my team.)
Golduck
Garchomp
Gardevoir
Houndoom

In SS my E4 team was:

Mr. Mime
Delibird
Nidoking
Persian
Typhlosion

I got tired of using the same 'good' Pokemans, so that's my semi-hipster team.

The best I've ever had in my opinion.

Pidgeot
Slowking
Golem
Gloom
Quagsire
and Magneton

They are all duel-type, and I have strengths all the way up to even being able to beat Red easily...I thought too hard about this one.

Messed around a bit with my Pearl save - Infernape starter and a rough assortment of stuff, saved at 7 badges. Beat Volkner, but couldn't quite work up the initiative to slog my way through Victory Road, so I decided to try to finally finish Heart Gold. Started with Cyndaquil.

Currently grinding on some early routes, getting some of my recent catches up to decent levels. Already beat Falkner and Bugsy, so next up is Whitney. Current team is Wooper, Gastly, Paras, Slowpoke, Zubat and Butterfree, though that's not even close to the team I'll take into Whitney's gym. I'm not sure who that's going to be yet...

*update* - well into the game - currently as far as Mahogany Town, but I haven't gone up to Lake of Rage yet. Mostly been knocking around Mt. Mortar and a few routes, doing some level grinding and evolving and such.

Current team is Scyther, Mankey, Lapras, Kangaskhan, Cubone and Girafarig.


*and another* - went up to Lake of Rage and caught the Gyarados (chipped it down with Kangaskhan, then stalled it with Lapras and caught it in a Heavy Ball), then went back down to Mahogany and swapped out my team for one more suitable for clearing out the Rocket hideout:

Crobat, Quilava, Heracross, Cubone, Magnemite and Slowbro.

In Diamond, my team had Staravia, Gyarados, Infernape, Biberal, Golem, and Golduck. I didn't play this game too much, so I didn't have the chance to build up my team properly. I only had Prinplup and Bidoof in Pearl, because I stopped playing after the first gym. I've had a lot of teams in Pokémon Platinum, but my final team consisted of Togekiss, Torterra, Lucario, Gyarados, Electivire, and Breloom. I loved this team, because I was able to win tons of online matches with it. In SoulSilver, I had Meganium, Pidgeot, Machamp, Dusknoir, Blissey, and Tentacruel. My HeartGold team was similar, but instead of Meganium, Machamp, and Pidgeot, I had Typhlosion, Breloom, and Fearow.

Very unusual team, not a typical one that most would pick and it's stronger for that. Just need to evolve Rhyhorn and Exeggcute to get the above exactly. I just need to finish the damn game for the first time, started it on June 2012. ;(

EDIT: Though I am thinking of replacing Seaking with a Krabby.

Are you mistaking some other Dragon, like Garchomp for Hydreigon? O_o'
I thought Hydreigon debuted in Gen V in 2010, while year 2006 for the first set of Gen IV games.
Assuming Blaziken is a physical attacker, the theme is quite balanced! Well done!
