      Hi everyone, I need recommendations on how to finish off and balance my team. I have beaten the Elite Four and all but I wasn't a fan of the pokemon I used and I'm trying to get a more likeable team.
      *I don't want to replace any I have, keep that in mind.
      *Levels aren't permanent I'm still boosting.
      *I don't want ones that can't evolve without being traded or something.
      -Blastoise lvl 100 all water moves
      -Flareon lvl 89 all fire moves
      -Staraptor lvl 73 three flying, one steel moves
      -Absol lvl 50 two dark, one normal, one bug moves

      Suggestions? I tried to base the core around the Elite 4 [i.e. flareon/staraptor vs 1st, blastoise vs 2nd + 3rd, absol (eventually) vs 4th] but Cynthia pisses me off with Togakiss and Milotic. I know electric could work with them but all the ones I have stink (I can boost but I don't like their power or leveled up attacks.)

      Shameless bump. Any ideas?

      Merged with this thread as it doesn't fit the requirements for a rate (e.g. full team/movesets).

      I personally feel Tynamo has a limit movepool for ingame so you could always consider going with the electric spider instead (which is also much easier to find in the same location). When I used Axew it proved fairly useful though.

      Well, it's hard to say given you're interested in getting a more 'likeable team' - what I might like (e.g. despite not having a wide movepool in 4th gen I like Luxray) may differ from your opinion. But other electric types to consider include Electrivire (if you can trade or use the GTS trick with evolving Pokemon through trades) and Rotom and its forms.

      BTW Staraptor could use Close Combat as it's a useful move for it to have and suits it as a fast hard hitter. Some more variety in moves too would be an idea for Blastoise and Flareon (why all water for instance? Try some other moves, like say Ice Beam for instance).

        I would just like to know which starter I should use for my first run of Black and White 2, Tepig, or Oshawott. This decision would drastically change my team to fit my starter.

        If I choose Oshawott my final team will most likely be:
        Samurott
        Arcanine/Magmortar
        Lucario
        Haxorus
        Braviary/Crobat
        ??? (undecided)

        If I choose Tepig
        Emboar
        Azumarill
        Magnezone
        Haxorus
        Braviary/Crobat
        ??? (undecided)

        I will also be using Memory Link with my Pokemon White, so what Starter should I use for that run too. I would really appreciate any help. Thank You

          I try to keep my pokemon team containing favorites rather than powerhouses, and I refuse to EV train partly because I'm being lazy, and partly out of principal. I usually get destroyed by everyone online because of this, but occasionally I do ok. Recently I've been reevaluating my team, and one problem I've always had is wanting to include unevolved pokemon. Do any of you keep unevolved pokemon on your teams? I'm always tempted to keep my starter at second evolution, but there are some pokemon I just prefer not to change, like Dragonair, Zorua, or Rhydon.

          Here are the locked members that I am for sure having on my team:
          Ninetales
          Flygon
          Umbreon
          Venasaur/Ivysaur

          And now I need to choose what I want in the empty slots.
          Here are some of my choices:
          Noctowl
          Pidgeot
          Zorua
          Lucario
          Mothim
          Mawile
          Quagsire
          Leavanny
          Steelix
          Marowak


          What do you think? How much of a hindrance would it be to keep some of them unevolved? Which ones would you use? I really would like to use a Zorua.

            Okay, so at the moment I've got a team consisting of five Pokemon:
            Altaria
            Camerupt
            Walrein
            Lunatone
            Cacture

            These Pokemon aren't up for debate; it's the last Pokemon I'd like help with deciding.
            So I've narrowed it down to three Pokemon, all of different types:
            Heracross [Bug/Fight]
            Swalot [Poison]
            Magnezone [Electric/Steel]
            Which would you choose and why? Thanks for your help!

              First, what game are you playing? It's kinda hard for us to know what you're up against if we don't now what game your playing, though, I can assume you're playing a 4th Gen Game.

              Second, Go Heracross, it's a powerful Bug and Fighting type.

                Hey, I need help deciding my last Pokemon, I'm playing Pokemon White and my team so far is.

                Emboar
                Tirtouga
                Lilligant
                Rufflet
                Zoroark

                I'm considering using Escavelier, Galvantula or Eelektross. All are good Pokemon, but I don't know which one to use. Any suggestions are appreciated, thanks!

                  Elektross has given me the most trouble during the main game, due to me not realizing it was not a water type. (Im sorry leavanny).

                  And, where are you in the game? I'm assuming you havent beaten the E4 yet. For beating the E4, Galvantula has the best type advantage, beating the Dark and Psychic type E4.

                      I'm replaying Pokemon Leaf Green and I just got to Cinnabar Island. I revived my Old Amber into Aerodactyl (my planned sixth member) and I hadn't remembered that it would only be level 5. I don't have the Exp. Share and can't get it without serious catching, as I caught only my team and some rares (Snorlax, Eevee, Hitmonchan, Lapras, etc.). I'm not a very patient guy and my current team of 5 hasn't had any serious problems so far. My team is below, so do you think I should put the time into training Aerodactyl?

                      Blastoise - Docile - Torrent - BlackGlasses
                      -Surf

                        Well it depends on the levels of the Pokemon. (You should be fine unless they are really under leveled) I think it would be a nice addition to that team, but if your not that patient I guess it's not really that nessacery to add him to your team your in pretty good shape. Before the Pokemon league I'd pick up another member though.[/SIZE]

                          They're all level 41 right now, but I've yet to do the Pokemon Mansion and the first 3 Sevii Islands. Do you have any suggestions for a sixth member?

                            Well you picked Blastoise so Gary will have Venusaur. You could go to Mt. Ember and get a Magmar. Or level up that eevee a bit and evolve it into Flareon. Or you could level up Hitmonchan a little. Its many punches with many types can be helpful, but if you dont want to go through a lot of training Magmar would be a good addition to your team. Or of course you could go to Seafoam Island and get Articuno or get Moltres at Mt. Ember. (I wouldnt recommend adding Zapdos if you go with one of the legendary birds because you already have Raichu. If you have money and can buy a lot of Ultra Balls I would go for one of the birds. Don't use your masterball. I would save that for Mewtwo.

                              I think you should train areodactyl, it seems worth your time.

                                i got:
                                Venasaur
                                Growhlith
                                Butterfree
                                Persian

                                i chose to train some intresting pokemons, not as the Charizard-Gyarados-Kadabra-ETC Six's, because i finished this game couple of times.

                                so any suggestions for fifth and sixth members for my six?

                                  Here's 5 the team I'll be using and their roles:

                                  Charizard - Mixed Sweeper

                                  Golem - Physical Sweeper/Physical Sponge

                                  Gengar - Drainer/Annoyer

                                  Lapras - Tank/Special Sweeper

                                  Arcanine - Physical Sweeper

                                  I'm torn between using Jolteon or Vaporeon. Jolteon would increase the speed of my team, whilst Vaporeon would increase the defense. Both can raise evasion.

                                  My Lapras is going to know thunder/thunderbolt (depending on which one of these I choose), so I'm not so worried about having an electric type on my team.

                                  The move set that the baton passer would be the following:

                                  Jolteon
                                  Thunder Bolt
                                  Agility
                                  Baton Pass
                                  Double Team

                                  Vaporeon
                                  Hydro Pump
                                  Acid Armour
                                  Baton Pass
                                  Double Team

                                  So which does my team need more, in terms of stats? More speed or more defence against physical attacks?

                                  Thanks!

                                    Butterfree is pretty terrible but if you want to keep it I suppose

                                      Butterfree isn't terrible. Most people just don't know how to use it effectively.

                                      I decided to train Aerodactyl, by the way. Went into E4 with team of 44s and swept up the best trainers of Kanto with little effort and tons of luck.

                                        Well, basically I need help with building a strong in-game team in Black. I don't know half the Pokémon and it seems some of my choices aren't so hot...

                                        Right now I have: Pignite, Pansage and Tranquill.

                                        For the record, I'm keeping Tranquill out of tradition (I always use the staple bird), but I may replace him with a Mandibuzz, even though she has crap attacking stats. I may drop Pansage because it's a stone evolution and it learns the last move too late (L43), and I don't think it's going to be useful for so long.

                                        I was going to catch a Blitzle but I heard Zebstrika isn't very good. I tried to catch a Drilbur too but I ran out of Poké Balls and it's just too annoying to catch, so I think I'm going with Krookodile but I'm not sure.

                                        So, what are good Pokémon for making a team for BW's story?

                                          Samurott lvl 37
                                          Excadrill lvl 34
                                          Pansear lvl 32

                                          I'm thinking of fitting Tynamo into my team, who should I remove? (must keep Samurott, Excadrill, Pansear)

                                              go to Smogon and search for dragonite there. Lots of viable movesets and EV sets for you to choose from for various gens.

                                              if you want to use physical DD dnite in 3rd gen you cant use dragon attacks. just go for strong physical moves like return or earthquake and give some coverage moves (like icebeam)
