    Dear PC,

    So I decided to start a fresh OR playthrough and I imported a Speed Boost Torchic as my starter. Im looking for team suggestion to go through everything including the battle maison?

    I definitely recommend getting a Deerling on Route 117 when you reach that part of the game
    Or I can trade ya one in about 8 hours

    Battle Maison is a whole other beast compared to the main story. It's easier to craft a team for the Maison after you've beaten the main story, when you have everything available to you for EV training/breeding/move tutors/DexNav/items/etc.

    As far as in-game goes, you'll need a Water type--it's Hoenn, it has a lot of water, and a Water type is good to have vs Team Magma. There's a bunch to choose from, but some decent early game ones would be like Wingull or Azurill or Magikarp (y'know, for Gyarados). You can fish up a Carvanha or a Tentacool around the time you need Surf to continue on. If you're willing to wait late into the game, there is Spheal as well.

    Speed Boost (Mega) Blaziken is a good 'mon tho and you can use it in the Maison when you get to that. Fire/Fighting is a good offensive STAB combination, and together with Speed Boost makes for a potent sweeper. You'll kind of want to aim for a set like this when you're finally gearing up for the Maison:

    Blaziken @Blazikenite
    Ability: Speed Boost (retains this upon mega evolution)
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 Def
    Nature: Adamant
    -Flare Blitz/Fire Punch
    -High Jump Kick/Low Kick
    -Protect
    -Stone Edge

    There are some Pokemon that Blaziken will have difficutly handling (or is outright checked/countered by), which off the top of my head is like Landorus-Therian, Azumarill, Salamence, [email protected], and Talonflame. The Maison will throw these at you eventually, so you need to be prepared for them. Fortunately a bulky Water type with an Ice coverage move handles all of these fairly well bar Azumarill.

    Just a note on this bit, while you will get to route 117 early-ish in the game, Deerling is only available via the DexNav, and even then only until after you have dealt with the box legendary.

      Good idea. I am definitely going to train a spheal (one of my favorite) so yeah. So I guess I should team build at the end of delta episode for the maison? Also how different is Maison To the battle tower/frontier?

      Maison is pretty much just the Battle Tower with a French coat of paint. Battle Frontier is different from those.
