if this is what you call "best team", you have a lot of reading to do in the Advanced Trainer's Guide ^_^;;

This team can be easily destroyed by semi-decent any online battling team... so beware. If you're just playing ingame then any team should be fine, but don't think about competitive plays with this.

Oh wait :shocked:!! No i don't use this for competitive play -i use my R/S team for ingame only since i have only just got the game and don't know much about the new moves and pokemon except for the few hints i get online

I will read the advanced trainer guide to get better
THANKS for warning me before i use this team for competitive play.... :dead:

nothing is wrong with cheating, as long as what resultant of what you used cheats for is still legal (such as a Mewtwo without 999 stats, for example). I'm ok with people using cheats as long as they stay within legal boundaries for their "cheated results."

shouldnt this be in the strategies and movesets area?

January 4th, 2004, 5:10 PM
well some people may still be in "ingame" stage which is anything goes... anything works for ingame really, unlike the competitive play within the strategies and movesets area.

I noticed no one included Thunder Wave in their team. Par can really mess your opponent's pokemon up, hence increasing your destructive power. Confuse Ray works wonders too, Ice demon.

Another thing is try not to have your pokemon have two of the same elemental attacks in your move set. You are wasting one valuble move slot.
Example: Gyarados-Surf, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Hydro Pump.
Surf and Hydro Pump are both offensive water attacks. Choose one. I suggest Hydro Pump, since Gyarados's Special Attack is rather low. You will need the power, and if the PP is too low, boost it up with PP Up.

Also, make use of your stats' strengths. Again, I use the same example:
Gyarados-Surf, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Hydro Pump
Unless your Gyarados's Special Attack is equal or higher than its Attack, don't use all the offensive moves that runs off your Special Attack. Since there is Surf and Hydro Pump, replace one with a normal attack. Don't waste your Gyarados's power.

Nintendo removed alot of old (and useful) pokemon from R/S. I don't know what was the actual purpose of them doing it, but if you can hack out any pokemon, get some of the old ones, like Snorlax, Umbreon, Houndoom, Dragonite, Magmar, Electrabuzz, Lantern, Miltank, etc. Since you are talking about a TEAM, its good to have some supportive pokemon, like Hazers, BPers, Pesudo-Passers, and not all simply Sweepers. Pokemon does not solely run on Pokemon power and type advantages, but also on the moves as well.

I think this is considered more in-game, so it will stay here.

I personally used Metagross and Latios for the Battle Tower, like frostweaver said, in-game battling is just pure force anyways.

January 31st, 2004, 9:39 PM
for battle tower i used(lv.100)..blaziken, latias, beautifly and mightyena(ruby, being MAY)
swampert, mightyena, latios, swellow and salamence..(sapphire) who cares i lost in sapphire. BORED >OUT>TO>DEATH.

January 31st, 2004, 9:47 PM
I used my Swampert, Medicham and Salemence for the battle tower.

Would Lanturn, Camerupt, and Metagross be a good team for the Battle Tower? I'm still working on the first two Pokemons' move sets, so it's all about balance from here.

February 13th, 2004, 9:10 PM
Deoxys(traded) :D ,Metagross,Raichu,Rayquaza,Jirachi(Cheated!) :bandit: Deoxys(trainer stars) :cheeky:

Shdwfalcon i don't agree with u when u say that u prefer Hydro Pump as it has much lower accuracy than surf and with a third of the PP.I think the higher damage rating in Hydro Pump losses to surf's accuracy and PP - so take surf instead...But u are correct when u say people should stop using 2 and more moves of the same type on one pokemon

Shdwfalcon u seem to like move sets for pokemon so go check out the "Pokemon GB strategies and movesets"

Would u people please let this thread die and stop bring my old,crappy team back infront my face[joking]..i think some people here should go post their team under the Strategies section and let it get rated.
