SRKid: Vire? This is 3rd gen we're talking about...

Anyway, I tend to use the Salamence/Metagross combo, and Latios in the Battle Frontier 'cause I'm cheap. All my Pokémon are bred without cheats, so their IVs aren't perfect and I adjust the EVs accordingly (in the case of Metagross).
Salamence @ Choice Band - Adamant
4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Speed
-Rock Slide
-Aerial Ace
I ran out of Brick Break TMs :(
Metagross @ Leftovers - Adamant
160 HP / 252 Attack / 96 Speed (I think - its just enough to outspeed ScarfCross in DP after an Agility, i.e. 202 Speed)
-Meteor Mash
I'm thinking of giving him Ice Punch / ThunderPunch (for DP only, obviously).
Latios @ Shell Bell (BF's item clause, plus my only Scope Lens is on Sapphire) - Mild
4 HP / 252 Sp. Atk / 252 Speed
-Dragon Claw
-Ice Beam
-Hidden Power (Fire 64 - lucky catch :D)
Just because it's allowed in the Battle Frontier. Unfortunately, Soul Dew doesn't work, so I have to use something else. HP Fire is a nice surprise for Steel types, especially Magneton, Forretress and Scizor.

Well, Salamence and Metagross cover each other's weaknesses extremely well (Salamence resists all Metagross's weaknesses and vice-versa), plus they have awesome Attack. Latios is there because I needed a Special sweeper, and it was the only good thing I had. Actually, I have a Modest Bagon with Hydro Pump and perfect Speed / Special Attack I should train one day...

Oh, and Vire is nooby, even in DP. None of the expert players actually use it.

Angelic Diablo - why don't you try Trick + Choice Band on Alakazam?

Well my Grovyle is a sweeper in the making

Midori (Grovyle)/@Quick Claw-Hasty
46 Atk/76 Sp. Atk/81 Speed
Leaf Blade
Mega Drain
Quick Attack

As I said: In the making. She's only level 35 after all.

And I don't know why I'm bothering with EV training as I have no access to competitive battling. I guess I'm just doing it anyway for at least once of the following reasons

1. I find it interesting and it makes the game more complex than it would be if I'm just beating the heads in of random wild Pokemon.
2. I may one day have access to competitive battling
3. It's nice to know the Poke's Hidden Power

But sorry, this topic's about sweepers.... *returns to the topic*

Anyway, Midori's much the only official sweeper (as in official I mean EV trained) I have as of now and she's a trainee :P

August 6th, 2008, 6:14 AM
Oh sorry then Mine is Mence.
Salamence~Adamant~Focus Sash
31 IV's For Attack?!
204 Attack, 248 EV's
252 EV's, speed
8 EV's HP
-Dragon Claw
-(???, I've only used 4th Gen move here...) Maybe Double Edge

August 6th, 2008, 7:52 AM
Dragon Claw is a Special Move in 3rd gen =P

Rash Gengar :D
156 Atk / 170 SpA / 184 Spe
Ice Punch
Sludge Bomb

August 6th, 2008, 8:47 AM
Also, Focus Sash didn't exist :P

Postman, why don't you have Shadow Ball? Just wondering... It would probably come in more useful than Sludge Bomb, wouldn't it?

August 6th, 2008, 9:49 AM
Lol I really dont know...
Its just a ingame pokemon anyways.

Shadow Ball is physical in 3rd Gen

Also Trick + Choice Band seemed to screw me up more often than I care to count, hence the reason I have psychic and leftovers

August 7th, 2008, 10:05 AM
So is Sludge Bomb, so there goes your argument :P

Besides, if you look at the nature and EVs, it's clearly a mixed attacker, so I think Shadow Ball would suit it even though it's physical.
