        My R/S/E Team:

        - Blaziken
        - Aggron
        - Manectric
        - Wailord
        - Mightyena
        - Swellow

        When I make my team I only like to use Pokémon from the generation of game I'm playing. Obviously there are some that I like and others that I don't, but I always find my 6 favorite from each. I personally would feel weird using older or newer Pokémon depending on what game I'm playing. For example I really like Charizard, but only use him in 1st gen/Kanto games. When a new gen comes out and 100+ new Pokémon are introduced, I feel weird using preexisting Pokémon. That's just me. I like to get a feel for each generations new Pokémon.
        I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

          Swampert (Bashful, Torrent, King's Rock) Lvl. 82 w/ Earthquake, Ice Beam, Surf, and Brick Break

          Crobat (Rash, Inner Focus, Leftovers) Lvl. 82 w/ Shadow Ball, Attract, Fly, and Sludge Bomb

          Gardevoir (Sassy, Trace, Brightpowder) Lvl. 82 w/ Fire Punch, Thunderbolt, Psychic, and Double Team

          Ursaring (Adamant, Guts, Scope Lens) Lvl. 82 w/ Aerial Ace, Facade, Rock Slide, and Bulk Up

          and lastly

          Houndoom (Quirky, Early Bird, Focus Band) Lvl. 82 w/ Flamethrower, Counter, Crunch, and Will-O-Wisp

          No point in having a 6th if my team's well balanced, not to mention how I just like having 5 poke-mans lol And I actually beat the Elite Four with 3 pokemon since Ursaring and Houndoom aren't available 'til after. It was pretty tough... I honestly don't know if I would do well in an actual tournament with my current team. Would I be able to hold my own?

              Currently at route 110 in Sapphire, as I'm doing a challenge. This is the team I currently have:


              I keep Zigzagoons for pickup ability, as well as filling up the space. Still got to acquire Koffing and Slugma in Fiery Path as of yet.

                Hello, I played Yellow and Stadium so I'm reliving those days through FR/LG and Colosseum. Here's my team which is little changed from back then, my choice of pokemon is based on Monster looks, and competitive battling performance, not popularity.
                Level 50 - 55 Poke Cup / Level 100 - Prime Cup
                Level 50 & 100 - Gengar - Special / Mixed Attacker
                Level 50 & 100 - Snorlax - Tank / Physical Attacker
                Level 55 & 100 - Dragonite - Special / Mixed Attacker
                Level 55 & 100 100 - Tyranitar - Physical Attacker
                Level 55 & 100 - Miltank - Medic
                Level 50 & 100 - Metagross - Mixed Attacker
                Level 50 - Blissey/Chansey - Medic
                Level 50 - Clefable - Special Attacker
                Various Pinch Hitters - Possible Weather Manipulator
                If you play Gen 3 especially Fire Red / Leaf Green or Emerald on Visual Boy Advance,
                If you enjoy straight up Monster Battle's, Talking Strategy, and Trading, Please PM & FR Me

                                        I'm working on playthroughs of Ruby and Emerald right now. In Ruby, I'm using Swampert, Absol, Breloom, Lairon, Gardevoir, and Linoone. In Emerald, I'm doing a grass mono, and so far I have Grovyle, Breloom, Oddish, and Seedot.

                                              I didn't realize that Crunch and Dragon Claw were special attacks until after I had made this team which is why Salamance has them. I also wasn't aware Shadow Ball was physical and did nothing when Jolteon used it.
                                              All of their levels are in the high 60s and I have beaten Elite Four Round 2 twice.
