    So I'm having a bit of trouble on the Elite four.. I'm at Karen and cannot train any higher of levels to beat any of her pokes.
    My team consists of only 3 pokes like i said, difficult training

    Feraligatr level 41
    Cut (replacing soon)
    dragon pulse (for lance)

    Lugia level 49
    Hydro pump

    Ampharos level 42
    signal beam

    Please help me with some ideas!
    But I also have some pokemon for trade as well, I have Tyrogue Eevee etc

    0834-5665-4914 (if a deformed Mii is what you see, you did it right)

    I'll move this to the in-game team rate section which is the section for advice on your team. I'll mentioned that Feraligatr could use something like ice fang/beam or a physical move (like Crunch) instead of Cut, and having both Waterfall and Surf is a bit odd for it. I'd stick to the former as it's physical and so does more damage from Feraligatr.

    I think you can get Fire Punch on Ampharos via the move relearner as well (Blackthorn, give a Heart Scale).

    As for training, you have the phone rematch system with trainers (more info here), or wild Pokemon in victory road, or also just battling the E4 over and over until you win and getting some exp that way. If you want to train any weaker Pokemon you can get the Exp Share from Mr Pokemon (give him the Red Scale) to make that easier. And if you want trades (although you do not need to make any to beat the game), try the Quick Trade thread sticky in the Trade Corner section we have.

      What type does Karen battle with? I tend to Run through a few times to see all the pokemon the four have. Then I group my six in order of elimental advantages.

        For Feraligatr, replace Cut with Ice Fang, Dragon Pulse with Crunch, and Surf with Superpower if you wanna level it up to around level 63 or so.

        For additional team members I recommend Rhydon which you can get before the E4 by capturing and training a Rhyhorn at Victory road which should prove useful against Lance. Have it know Hammer Arm, Earthquake, Stone Edge, and preferably Megahorn.

        Also consider Gyarados with the moves Dragon Dance, Ice Fang, Waterfall, and Bite, there's also Lapras as well with Ice Beam, Surf, Confuse Ray, and Body Slam if Gyarados doesn't sound that good to you. Also replace Charge with Focus Blast on Ampharos as well. For the final slot I would have to say something along the lines of a Heracross if you can find one. The last slot shouldn't matter that much since you should be set by then hopefully.

        Your entire team team should be around mid to late 40s level wise beforehand too.

        Good luck and may your victory be sweet as can be.

          Hmm, you should level up all your Pokemon so it exceeds in the 50's range. Because Lance's strongest Pokemon is a Level 50 Dragonite, you should aim to be in the 55's.

          Also try to vary your Pokemon elements, and make your Pokemon learn different elemental attacks to back up from weaknesses. Let's take your Ampharos as a suggestion. It knows three electric type move and one bug. You only have 7 different elemental attacks out of 17. Make it have a variety.

          Your Pokemon should also be in its final evolution by now.

          What you should work on most is catching more powerful Pokemon. Don't use your Pokemon with HMs. Firstly, you don't need HMs in the Pokemon League and HMs are just pure weakness (apart from Fly and Surf)

          Hope I helped you alot! Hope we can keep in touch

          Here's what I think you should have:-

          LV.55 FERALIGATR
          Hydro Pump
          TM Blizzard
          TM Earthquake

          LV.50 LUGIA
          Hydro Pump
          TM Shadow Ball

          LV.50 AMPHAROS
          TM Thunder
          Signal Beam
          TM Focus Blast
          *Your Choice

          LV 50.EXEGGUTOR
          TM SolarBeam
          TM Psychic
          *Your Choice
          *Your Choice

          TM Flamethrower
          *Your Choice
          *Your Choice

          You can choose the rest of the Pokemon, after all, you're the one playing. Just remember, you should train until your Pokemon are strong enough to compete in the League, don't just compete because you finished everything.

          My Pokemon were at their strongest

          LV.59 TYPHLOSION
          Blast Burn
          Ice Beam

          LV.52 BRELOOM
          Leaf Storm
          Focus Blast
          Gunk Shot

          LV.53 WALREIN
          Hydro Pump
          Rock Smash

          LV.57 DRAGONITE
          Draco Meteor
          Sky Attack
          Ice Beam

          LV.55 TYRANITAR
          Dark Pulse
          Rock Wrecker
          Hyper Beam
          Psycho Boost

          LV.53 SCIZOR
          Doom Desire
          Shadow Ball

          I varied my Pokemon's elements and their moves
