I'd appreciate it if someone could rate the team I have currently:

Darmanitan lv 48
Seismitoad lv 48
Eelektross lv 46
Archeops lv 46
Excadrill lv 50
Musharna lv 47

I just got my eighth badge and I'm headed for Victory Road.

I should inform you that you have 3 team members weak to Water, so why not try replacing Musharna with a Grass-type?

I recommend Lilligant, which learns some nice special-based Grass attacks (which counters Water-type) and also Quiver Dance. Definitely go and get one if you can.

Try and go for one with Own Tempo so you can use Petal Dance effectively without confusing yourself.

Everyone else looks fine, and you should be ready to go.

I say that your pokemon are wayy too low of levels for Elite Four. I use Three at most to go against them and they all are at level 55 or better

The Elite four strongest pokemon is lvl 50 on each one.

I think that's what Eelektross is there for.
That guy can withstand pretty much so switching won't kill it...
And since BW E4 has only one Water type (Shauntal's Jellicent), it won't be problem as Shauntal always starts with Confagrigus.

Ok I keep messing up in SoulSilver badly lol. I've beat it numerous times but I want the perfect team. What's the best Pokemon to choose with each starter and where's a good place to EV train in the beginning of the game? I don't really wanna breed Pokemon just to EV train them when I already got them.

I currently finished yet another pokemon gold run and I am getting a little bored.
So, I decided, why not a character run? So, I am going to use a team that fits the generation 2 rival, Silver. So far, I have this team as a possibility:

Sneasel

Most people get a shuckle in cianwood city but has anyone noticed why they give it to you? The boy who trades it says a red haired kid stole his sneasel, and gives you a shuckle to keep safe. So, it is natural for Silver to own a sneasel.

Feraligatr

This is the part with a little controversy. People always argue which person gets which starter, but I am choosing feraligatr for many reasons. First, PokeSpe gives Silver a totodile and a feraligatr is a lot more intimidating than a typhlosion or aeganium.


The rest of the team is debatable:

Crobat
Nidoking
Magneton
¿??????????

Suggestions for the sixth slot and what should I change?

Me and some 15 of my friends recently finished a tournament for Versions R/B/Y. My team and I dominated to say the least. However, the G/S/C environment is completely unique in comparison to Gen I and Gen III - V. I'm well aware that it's a more stall-oriented generation than the others, but other than that I am 100% open to criticism and guidance. The rules for the G/S/C tournament limit the type of Pokemon I can use, etc, and are as follows:
- No Legends of Any sort (Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mew, Mewtwo, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Celebi).
- No two of the same Pokemon on the same team.
- No Skarmbliss; Only one or the other on a given team.

As of now, my team is basically open for anything. I have two Pokemon so far that are at level 100, but they could easily be changed. My current 100's are as followed:

Meganium @ Leftovers
- Synthesis
- Reflect
- Razor Leaf
- Body Slam

Reflect boosts up the team's defense, which comes in handy as you know. Synthesis is there to keep his HP up, while he uses Razor Leaf for his main attack (High Crit + STAB) or Body Slam if need be and/or for paralysis.


Ampharos @ Quick Claw
- Thunderbolt
- Fire Punch
- Thunder Wave
- Swift

Thunder Wave is there for the obvious reasons; Ampharos's lackluster speed, etc. Thunderbolt makes good use of his Electric STAB, while both Thunderbolt and Fire Punch take advantage of his +300 Special Attack. Swift is for.... Well I used it in the game, but need to replace it and am open for suggestions.


Others I am considering are Quagsire (Dat typing, man) and Shuckle (Defenses, unexpected?), but you can talk me out of it. Thoughts, suggestions?

You might want to include gyarados since they have some fairly good stats and a wide move pool (essential for a monotype challenge).

Milotic has an ok movepool, is durable and has a reasonable special attack. It is kind of hard to obtain though.

Starmie has an awesome special attack and a great move pool.

Sharpedo will make mosdeep far easier and is easy enough to come by as carvahna

Tentacruel can be nasty with poisoning and has a reasonable special attack also.

Those are your best options if you ask me.

@gimmepie: Well... Gyarados cannot abuse its brutal Attack stat in the III gen.
I would also advise Lanturn as Electric type is always useful.

I my team is (I can make changes based on suggestions)
Torterra
Salamence
Milotic
Houndoom / Magmortar
Magnezone / Some other electric pokemon
Gallade / Lucario

Is this a good team? Because I have some second thoughts on some pokemon and I hate having two of the same type pokemon on a team.

Yes, it's a solid team. I'd use Houndoom cos it's dark type as well and use Gallade cos he's Psychic type as well. Your gonna need to plan the moves each Pokemon is gonna have before getting them tho.

Fourth Generation Games isn't the right forum for team building, as this thread belongs in In-Game Team Help. So please post in there next time if your seeking any team building advice in the future. Thanks. With that, I'm going to move this on over!

Tornadus or Xatu
On the one hand Tornadus stats are better and has less weaknesses.
On the other hand Xatu is Psychic so its more effective against more types and i dont have a psychic on my team, down side it gains 3 more weaknesses....
or any other suggestions

Well... Tornadus is a legendary Pokémon so it wins over most "normal" Pokémon.
Depends on what you need... but since you don't have Psychic type on your team, you should go for Psychic type and not Flying one.

Tornadus (both Incarnate and Therian) is generally the better choice because of its superior offenses and Speed compared to Xatu. (why you chose Xatu is beyond me, TBH) Tornadus mainly serves as a fast attacker with Choice Specs/Life Orb; Xatu, despite possessing offensively leaning stats, usually supports the team with Magic Bounce. Which one you choose depends on what your team needs. Here are some recommended sets for both:

Tornadus (Therian, even though Incarnate Tornadus can do those sets as well):
-Hurricane
-Focus Blast/Superpower
-U-turn
-Rain Dance/Taunt/Hidden Power (Ground)
Nature: Timid/Naive
EVs: 4 HP/252 SAtk/252 Spe or 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

or
-Hurricane
-Focus Blast
-U-turn
-Heat Wave/Air Slash
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs

Incarnate Tornadus can use this better than Therian Tornadus, due to Prankster access:
-Bulk Up
-Acrobatics
-Superpower/Brick Break
-Taunt
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Flying Gem
Ability: Prankster

Xatu:
-Thunder Wave/Toxic
-U-turn
-Roost
-Heat Wave/Reflect
Nature: Bold/Impish
EVs: 248 HP/252 Def/8 SDef
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Magic Bounce

or
-Thunder Wave/Toxic
-Roost
-U-turn
-Psychic/Night Shade
Nature: Calm/Careful
EVs: 252 HP/240 Def/16 Spe
Item: Leftovers
Ability: Magic Bounce

(yes, I know this is an in-game question thread, but still...)

I'm planning on soloing round 2 of the E4 in Black 2 with Petilil. I'd like some help with things. Since this isn't competitive, I was thinking this:

Petilil @ Eviolite
- Giga Drain
- Sleep Powder
- Dream Eater
- Synthesis/Growth/HP Fire or Ice

Not sure about EV spreads though. And as for the HP, I have Fire and Ice Petilil available. Not sure if I have the time to RNG another with a different HP type though, so eh. I figure Ice would be useful because of Iris having Dragons. So yeah! Advice? :) I'm open to almost anything really. It will be on level 100, of course. Throwing that in there, lol.

Why don't you evolve it to give it access to Doredhia's Quiver Dance? :D
But if has to be Petilil then go for HP Ice and also you can go for Growth instead of Dream Eater... =)

I've always enjoyed ghost, pyschic and dark type pokemon, But I don't know what good pokemon in BW2 to get for a team! I'm going to use lucario and roserade and emboar for starts for the rest of the game. But is there some good dark/psychic/ghost types?
Any suggests?

Any suggests?:tired:
Chandelure is in my opinion the best Ghost type Pokémon in the game, but as you've already got a Fire type, you might want to go with Golurk or Cofagrigus. They're not as good as Chandelure in my opinion, but they are at least decent.

Tyranitar and Hydreigon are the best Dark type Pokémon in the Unova dex, but they're a bit difficult to obtain. You might want to go with Weavile or Zoroark instead.

As for Psychic types, I think your best bet would be Espeon, Metagross, Bronzong or Starmie. Starmie can be a great Pokémon as it covers four types you're currently missing on your team: Electric (Thunderbolt), Ice (Ice Beam), Psychic (Psychic) and Water (Surf).

Hope to have helped!

I'd go with Chandelure for the Ghost-type, 145 Special Attack hits really hard and it gets good special-based moves to abuse it.

For your Dark-type, I'd recommend either Weavile for a physical attacker or Zoroark for a special attacker. Both are pretty quick as well.

And Espeon would be the obvious good Psychic, but Sigilyph is also nice cos it has a nice movepool and a secondary Flying-type.

I am currently training a trapinch in Attack, and was wondering what else i should train it in. I know that flygon has a rather high base speed, and thats the reason i dont really want to train his speed, since its pretty good already.

What would you guys suggest?
