      I had a Gliscor that new Defog but I dont think it would fit your team.
      I suggest you take a HM slave for Defog cos you need a strong 6th member. You should put in the team a type like Ice or Water. You'll eventually battle Cynthia and you'll need something strong against her Garchomp lol.

        I was also thinking of getting a Water/Ice type of pokemon for a 6th member but i think the only one that is able to learn fly is wingull/pelipper. The problem is that the pokemon does not seem to be strong at all (pardon me if I´m worng xD).

        So I was thinking of replacing one of my current pokemons for one that is able to learn fly but I´m not sure witch one I should replace...

        Here's a new question: I know that the Metronome item's power boost will reset if you choose a different move, but will it reset if you use a healing item?

            There's Electvire. Really good attack stats. But you may need a pal who have the evo item attached to their and trade it

              Electvire is really good, and better (from what I remember). Hard to get though.

              Electivire is definitely a powerhouse of a Pokemon, Magnezone while still pretty handy in battle (personally I dislike it and I wouldn't use), Electivire would be your number one choice. Although Luxray is pretty cool and formidable as well, even if its move-pool is a bit restricted. Just curious, any reason for asking this question? Planning to put together a powerhouse team? 8)

                  I assume you want one to trade for, and unfortunately that cant be done since all of the WiFi functions for the games prior to X and Y had been shut down.

                  I'll just move this into the quick questions thread. As a side note though, if you ever have any more quick trade requests I recommend you check out these threads instead!

                  Happy trading!

                    Well, seeing how the entire Magnemite/Ton/Zone line has the most resistances out of any other Pokemon, and seeing how it has a great Special Attack stat and movepool, I'd say that Magnezone's the best non-legendary Electric type, period. Though, in Platinum, it has served me much better than my Luxray did once I got rid of my Luxray.

                        I think your best bet is either Elite Four or Mt. Silver.

                        Mt.Silver for sure. The Pokemon there are pretty high leveled and Red is good too. Give it a shot!

                          I pokeradared 41 shinx, was reseting for about a good hour until my stupid finger slipped and I ran into a dumb bidoof. I found no shiny patches. There was about four that was directly above my sprite and looked like it could've been one - but the certain type of shaking grass makes it look like it could've been a shiny-less patch too. It was absolutely ridiculous.

                          How long does it take in Diamond for a shiny patch to appear after a chain of 40 in the pokeradar? Is it Obvious to tell if it's a shiny patch even if it's in front of your sprite? Please help, because I'm not sure if I'm going to do this again, and may just stick with X/Y when it comes to the pokeradar, lol..

                          Generally 40-44 is the sweet spot for finding shines, but it isn't a guarantee. I've known friends who have encountered them after a chain of merely 20 while others a chain of nearly 50. It really just varies from person to person. All I can really recommend is keep trying! You will run into one eventually; persistence is the key!

                          Good Luck!

                            Replaying the Elite 4/Champion repeatedly is probably the best way to do it. It's certainly more entertaining than going through wild encounters at Mt. Silver. May as well earn some money along the way.

                              Magnezone is superior to Electivire, in my opinion. The best electric moves in the game fall under the special category. Magnezone can dish out more damage than Electivire, and has far better defenses/resistances.

                              Neither pokemon can really cite speed as a key strength, though Electivire is more likely to have priority with its moves. Most electric types rely somewhat on inflicting opponents with paralysis, so speed isn't usually a concern.

                              Magnezone's 4x weakness to ground types is concerning, however.

                              The only real issue with Magnezone is its 4x Ground Weakness. Without air balloon existing in platinum, it's a pretty substantial challenge in using a Magnezone (also its weaknesses to fire and fighting). If you get one with Sturdy though, that can help a lot since its speed is pretty trash. Other than Magnezone, any of the Rotom formes are very strong, especially Rotom-Wash and Rotom-Fan thanks to their unique typings, good stats and move pools.

                                  Then don't use Magnezone against ground-types... and even then there's always Hidden Power Ice.

                                  The Rotom forms are soooo hard to get.

                                  You don't need to be a ground type to know a ground move. And I was assuming this was for a competitive team. The rotom forms aren't super hard to get, they just take time through the playthrough to get them. If it's just for a normal playthrough then yeah Magnezone makes more sense, but at the same time any electric type is fine cuz ingame it's mostly levels that matter.

                                    Any good places early on for each of these pokemon??

                                    Croconaw, Geodude, Spearow and Gastly. Currently at Slowpoke well, can't train Spearow at Ilex Forest yet, Gastly taking forever as Lick is an awful move.
