      Give it Brick Break or some Rock type move to get rid of Ice types.

        I'm starting a new game of Pokemon Soul Silver and I need a team for my journey.

        I'm planning on adding legendary Pokemon to my team, but I still need input on my team. So I currently have no idea, on my team. So thanks for anyone that can help. If you don't mind it would be great if you guys could tell me the best Pokemon for each type, and also a team for Soul Silver. Thanks, and sorry if I made no sense, in what I am saying .

          Im getting Soul Silver, and had been thinking about my team. So I was almost confident that I am going to use cyndaquil as my starting Pokemon. I was also thinking about using Quagsire, because i know Quagsire is just awesome .

          So my current planned team is:

          Cynaquil(Fire)
          Quagsire(Water/Ground)

          Now for the rest of the pokemon, I'm not really sure, so I need some input on the rest of my team, for Soul Silver.

          P.S: I don't mind having a legendary on my team, but at most the only legendaries I might use on my team in this is probably one of the dogs, and it might be Raikou.

          Thanks for the help

          Edit: And Yes I posted a thread about the same topic earlier, but it got moved, because i forgot that I couldn't ask for a entire team. Meh..

            if you are keeping your 2 pokemon, remember to teach typhlosion thunderpunch and quagsire icepunch

            some options:

            -get mareep? decent electric type

            -gastly may be difficult to train early on but later haunter/gengar owns.

            -abra. kadabra/alakazam owns anything non-dark.

            -also trade another abra for a machop in the goldenrod city giant mart. machoke/machamp owns anything non-psychic/flying in this game. Plus he levels up fast so you dont have to grind so hard.

            -after you get surf, go to union cave on friday. surf to a new section of the cave. (you will find a trainer with kangaskhan in that new part) You can find a Lapras there. Ice beam rapes Lance's dragonites if you dont get icepunch.

            -after reaching ecruteak and seeing bill in the center, go back to goldenrod to see bill in his house. He will give you a Eevee. Evolve it to Espeon (day) or Umbreon (night), unless you somehow have a stone.

            -catch Scyther in the bug catching contest and evolve to Scizor. You have a badass pokemon.

            -catch heracross by headbutting trees near caves. Another badass pokemon.

            -graveler/golem is decent for ingame. So is Steelix

              This time around, I'm using Meganium even though I realize it doesn't have much purpose in game.
              So far I've decided..
              Noctowl
              Meganium
              Ninetales

              What else should I add? I think I'm not going to use Azumarill or Gyarados or a physical attacking Water type because I want it to know Surf as a useful battle move. Perhaps Vaporeon? Starmie?

              Anyone have any suggestions?

              And no, I will not replace Noctowl with Togekiss. >-<

                it doesn't have much purpose in game.

                doesn't have much purpose in game.
                Whhhyyyyy

                Why does everybody say that? Am I the only one Meganium served well for?

                Anyways, I think you should go for Ampharos since it's the only Electric readily available. I used Arbok on one of my runs, she was actually surprisingly useful. You could try for one of those just to be unique. Also, Stantler is available and you could use it just for a challenge. Although it does learn the useful Hypnosis (even though it's inaccurate).

                EDIT: And yeah, Vaporeon would be a good choice because of its hefty HP and defenses. That thing can take a hit.

                  I for one think Meganium is absolutely the most underrated starter of all!
                  Meganium would have purpose in other games, for sure. But in Johto, there's not any gyms or members of the Elite 4 that have weakness to Grass. Chikorita is your first team member, and the first 2 gyms have an advantage to Grass.
                  I'm definitely not trying to put Meganium down.
                  I've decided it's crucial for me to get Mareep, otherwise it will be difficult to defeat Falkner.
                  Arbok and Stantler are interesting choices. Arbok was a passing thought when I first started thinking about my team, and I just might use it. If I'm going to go normal type, I'm going to go Persian thoug-- Which I just might do as well.
                  So let's see..
                  Meganium
                  Noctowl
                  Ninetales
                  Ampharos
                  (water)
                  Persian/Arbok.
                  That's pretty solid. I think Starmie is going to be my Water. I've never used it before, and it's dual Psychic which is pretty neat-o.

                  Thanks for your help.

                    well of all the grass starters meganium is quite mediocre.

                    but it can still get by for ingame purposes.

                    and lol persian/arbok. better to get some psychic/ghost/dark types instead

                      Starmie is dual Psychic. I can't evolve Haunter, and I'm not doing the Safari zone bull plus Pokeathlon bull to get Misdreavous and dusk stone. I'm looking for a challenge anyway, I think I'll be okay.

                                Hi everyone!
                                I'm really new to Pokemon White and I haven't got mine yet, it's being shipped, although I'm already thinking of my team.
                                Don't worry about which Pokemon comes later in game than the other, I'm getting most of the porkemon at level 1 from a friend and I'll train each of those.
                                -Serperior
