Just started a new playthrough of Platinum. Currently at Oreburgh and haven't challenged the gym yet. Team is:

Turtwig, Shinx, Starly and Geodude.

I was toying with the idea of adding a Machop, though it'd only be until I caught a Ralts, since I'm planning on using Gallade for my fighter. I don't think I will though - I'm probably going to just teach Rock Smash to the Geodude and use it (and Turtwig) against Roark. And for that matter, I'm probably going to end up swapping the Geodude for something else (I have no idea what yet) later on anyway.


*Edit to update*

Just cleaned out the Galactic Building in Veilstone. The team I used for that was Gallade, Staraptor, Torterra, Luxray, Vaporeon and Houndoom. I've also got a Rotom and a Scyther that I've been swapping in and out of the team, and a Bibarel and a Tropius for HM duties. I'm planning on catching a Snorunt to evolve into a Froslass, though I'm not sure how much I'll use it. It's just pretty much the only thing left in Platinum that I haven't tried yet.

In Soulsilver, my team is: Tira (Luxray), Snowflake (Froslass), Flare (Charizard), Inferno (Charizard, shiny), and Mewtwo. All of them are level 100. (I already beat Red.) I am also raising a Camerupt and a Shiftry.

In Pearl, on the other hand, I did a Nuzlocke. At the end I had only a Mismagius nicknamed "Danger" (All the other Pokémon I brought to the League fainted.). She is level 74 now.
