I was pretty good at balancing my team out enough for them all to be pretty weak when I reached the E4, which meant I'd have to rely on their typings and such while constantly reviving and healing them. I definitely had Pokemon who were the weak links on the team, mainly my Unfezant and Leavanny, since both were horribly underleveled and weak. However, if I had to choose an MVP, I'd say my Krookodile. She rarely ever failed me, and her moveset were pretty great for just about any Pokemon. She was pretty fast, so she was quick to take out the slow and weak with. For the stronger ones, mainly the big Dragon types that Iris and Drayden had, which I did not have any Ice type moves for, her Foul Play was exceptional, and she was definitely a huge help, but my Emboar and Magnezone were right there behind her. So the win was a team effort, not really exclusive to anyone.

    Magneton or Lucario were this for my Black 2 run, but I feel like my Lilligant from White version carried me through the postgame after I transferred it.

      My mvp was my beloved Zoroark, who is now level 100. The only Pokemon she had trouble with were fighting types, and some of those she could still beat.

        Much like in my first playthrough of White version, Haxorus was my MVP. He is seriously built to take down the Elite 4 for the most part. After a Dragon Dance or two, he becomes a wrecking machine. Especially against the Dark and Psychic members if you've taught Haxorus X-Scissor.

          Lucario. He was kind of the leader of my team, after I dropped Samurott in favor of Starmie, in my first White 2 playthrough. And, he did miracles through E4 and Champion.

            Arcanine was a boss in Black 2. Never let me down. Honorable mention to Roserade, who took down even Pokémon with resistance to Grass because Petal Dance is OP in 5th gen (Lilligant who?).

            I didn't have a guy that stood out in Black, but Haxorus deserves mention for being able to sweep Ghetsis all by himself.

            Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, the day Pokémon pulled a Dallas and jumped the shark.

              In my first White 2 playthrough, Raiden, my male Lucario was definitely my MVP. He did pretty much EVERYTHING, and let me tell you, he rocked everything all the way to Heck and back. He was also my first level 100 in a Pokemon game, and Lucario isn't even one of my favorite Pokemon. Weird. o_e

                For my White 2 Playthrough, Serperior. Adamant Nature and I got a moveset of (1) Outrage; (2) Leaf Blade; (3) Aqua Tail; and (4) Swords Dance. It took some time for me to train up my Snivy but It was all worth it. He destroys everything. Honorable mention goes to my Arcanine (the best non- starter, non- legendary fire type) and Krookodial (Moxie rules).

                  For my MVP, Excadrill. What a real wrecking ball he was, especially when he has earthquake and a swords dance in his arsenal. I did struggle against Marshal however, and for that, I chose Weezing as my second MVP. Its great defense, Poison typing (which resists Fighting) and access to Will-o-Wisp (Which is unusual for a Poison type) helped me stop several of his fighters.
                  Boilurn, the Scald Pokemon and the evolved form of Hottle. It can burn the holder by the lightest of touches when it boils. It can boil 3 gallons of water in one minute.

                    Excadrill was my main attacker, but it is a bit on the frail side. Swanson the Conkledurr is pretty much my fallback on anything and that thing can take a hit like a champ, while dishing hurt of its own.

                      Definately my Hydreigon. He tore the E4 apart lol. Honorable mention to my Cobalion. They're both lvl 100 now!

                          My Adamant Krookodile with Moxie fo sho. That thing just completely demolished the E4 with STAB Earthquakes/Crunches. Ghetsis' Hydreigon gave my team a ton of trouble though, but Outrage saved the day. So MVP definitely goes to my main man Krookodile <3

                            For my Pokémon White, Samurott. For Pokémon Black 2, Samurott. For previous games, water starter. Especially Black 2, because my Samurott had already reached level 76 by the time I reached the League, and wiped them all single-handedly! (with a bit of help from Lucario and Darmanitan, of course). I don't know what it is, but I couldn't have done it without him! *cough* profile pic *cough*

                              for me, Ampharos :D With the move set, "charge, discharge, cotton guard" and "strength"....won me, well, pretty much the last half of the game ^^ That scientist guy who temporarily joins team plasma (his name escapes me, lol) destroyed my entire team except for ampharos. I keep all my pokemon at the same levels too. But all his steel mega-poke's destroyeth the rest of my i had to slowly...slowwwly...SLOOOOOWWLY, TEDIOUSLY chip away at his pokemon til i managed to win....boy that was a long, ridiculous battle....but after that...i was like, man! Ampharos is BOSS!

                              Thats'a my'a friend code :D White 2

                                I have Serperior named Regium named after it's royal roots(no pun untended). It has basic Grass Staller moves(Leech Seed, Toxic, Protect) and can survive alot of punishment that is dealt towards him. Every battle I used him results with him knocking out the most of the opponent while Regium still has near-full Hp.

They are tricksters and tend to disguise themselves as another trainer class to deceive challenging trainers, but soon break off of it as soon as they are found. They tend to use annoyer and stall tactics such as Embargo and Swagger along with bulky and fast Dark-types like Zoroark and Umbreon to give trainers a hard time during battle.

                                    For me it was Lucario as well!
                                    He has such a diverse movepool, i liked him a lot (:

                                      My MVP in Detail

                                      Met at Lv70, Dragonspiral Tower
                                      OT: ZEKROM(12777)
                                      Jolly Nature(Speed Up, Sp.Atk Down)
                                      Strong willed
                                      Judge: Decent all around
                                      Best stat by Judge: Sp.Def

                                      Ability: Teravolt
                                      Held Item: Leftovers

                                      HP: 327
                                      Atk: 345
                                      Def: 283
                                      Sp.Atk: 256
                                      Sp Def: 252
                                      Speed: 237


                                      Dragon Claw
                                      Fusion Bolt

                                      It's kind of weak for a Zekrom actually, because I did not EV train it and spammed 14 rare candies on it. To make up for the loss of effort points through 14 rare candy level-ups, I spammed the Vitamins and kept training against Marshal, whose Pokemon give out HP and Attack EVs. Also, the HP is under-average for a Zekrom.

                                      I'm proud of my buddy xD He sweeps water and/or flying teams completely with his STAB Fusion Bolt!!!

                                      Naughty Nature Zekrom with 422 Attack stat and 252 Attack EVs traded from Pokemon White Version FTW!!!

                                        It was DEFINATELY my Honchkrow for the E4 (i hacked her in, but i hacked her in at lvl 50 while the rest of my team was 60). She had an intense movepool that WASN'T hacked (Fly, Night Slash, Superpower) and she also had her dw ability, Moxie (which is a great combo with Superpower). For Iris though, it was definately my Vanilluxe, Bangarang. He had blizard, ice beam (if blizard ran out of PP), acid armor and hail. It was a beast and still is. Of course, now my MVP is Marijuana (my lilligant).

                                          Electivire is my star because of all the type coverage it gets with the three elemental punches. It took down four of Iris's pokemon before being KO'd by Haxorus.

                                            The hidden grotto Minccino that Bianca finds you before you go to Driftveil was my MVP because of Skill Link. After it turned into a Cinccino, it had a move that had a base power of 182.5 and two more with guaranteed 125 power (Because Wide Lens added 10 accuracy to everything.) with good attack to begin with. It even had a nature that increased its attack. (At the expense of Defense.) It is also very fast.

                                            It was a true glass cannon.

                                            Huge Power Azumarill was a beast. Yes it was slow, but it could take hit well because of its bulky health and good defense. Also with huge power boosting the base attack to 100, you suddenly had a surprisingly strong 'mon.

                                              Lucario was my MVP, Aura Sphere and Shadow Ball were a damn good combo. Honourable mention goes to Cobalion, Sacred Sword and Iron Head were awesome all out assault combos. Metagross was helpful too, Meteor Mash and Iron Defence made him indestructible. (I'm kind of a sucker for combination steel-types).

                                              Dishonourable mention to Virizion and Terrakion for being a major let-down after Cobalion.
                                              Sometimes I make music.
