    Okay, so I plan on doing a challenge mode run, and I want to see if my team is ready for it. Here's the team I've made, I haven't started yet, as my friend is lazy and won't beat Black 2, but here's the team I've made.

    Samurott
    Torrent
    Neutral Nature
    -Razor Shell/Aqua Tail/Surf
    -Areal Ace/Aqua Jet/Razor Shell
    -Megahorn/Aqua Jet
    -Swords Dance/Areal Ace

    Lucario
    Steadfast
    Neutral Nature
    -Aura Sphere
    -Close Combat/Earthquake
    -Dark Pulse
    -Extreemespeed

    (Why did they get rid of Water Pulse for HM03? I'd use that on my Lucario any day.)

    Arcanine
    Intimidate
    Adamant
    -Flare Blitz
    -Thunder Fang/Wild Charge
    -Crunch/Iron Head/Close Combat/Dig
    -Outrage

    Dragonite
    Jolly
    Multiscale(hopefully)
    -Dragon Claw/Rush
    -Dragon Dance
    -Fire Punch
    -Iron Tail

    Gothitelle
    Modest
    Frisk
    -Psyshock/Psychic
    -Future Sight/Psychic
    -Thunderbolt/Charge Beam/Energy Ball
    -Signal Beam/Dark Pulse

    Drapion
    Adamant
    Sniper
    -Cross Poison
    -Night Slash
    -Ice Fang
    -Aqua Tail/Earthquake/Rock Slide

    Do you think this team could make it through challenge mode? Any suggestions for moves or anything else?

      A good mixed set will work for Samurott; Scald is another option to use, however I picked Surf as its on of the HM moves that you do use quite a bit, and its pretty good to use. Megahorn could be replaced with Ice Beam if you need it too, but considering when you get Ice Beam, it might be better just to keep the bug type move for the two dark and psychic users at the E4

      Lucario
      Steadfast
      Neutral Nature
      -Aura Sphere
      -Close Combat/Earthquake
      -Dark Pulse
      -Extreemespeed

      The good thing about Lucario is that is has a vast movepool to pick from. My Lucario has Ice Punch, Hidden Power Fire, Aura Sphere, and Dark Pulse for example. I think it'd be good as long as their is coverage and no mixture of dark pulse and shadow ball

      Arcanine
      Intimidate
      Adamant
      -Flare Blitz
      -Thunder Fang/Wild Charge
      -Crunch/Iron Head/Close Combat/Dig
      -Outrage
      Arcanine never really came through for me on my last run of Black 2, she always got killed off quite easily. I say go with Crunch out of the four various moves as it gets something to hit Ghosts and Psychic types, which is always good. Iron Head gets coverage on rock and ice types though. Dig is good, but earthquake is better (can he even learn it?)

      Dragonite
      Jolly
      Multiscale(hopefully)
      -Dragon Claw/Rush
      -Dragon Dance
      -Fire Punch
      -Iron Tail
      Claw simply for accuracy sakes, and while it'd be forever until hes a Dragonite, Fly would not be a poor investment.

      Gothitelle
      Modest
      Frisk
      -Psyshock/Psychic
      -Future Sight/Psychic
      -Thunderbolt/Charge Beam/Energy Ball
      -Signal Beam/Dark Pulse
      The four bolded ones would of been my choice, there is also Focus Blast and Shadow Ball to pick from, but Focus Blast has a low PP and Shadow Ball's coverage (same as dark pulse mind you) is minimal

      Drapion
      Adamant
      Sniper
      -Cross Poison
      -Night Slash
      -Ice Fang
      -Aqua Tail/Earthquake/Rock Slide
      I love this thing, it can do some epic damage. Rock Slide all the way as you got water and ground(?) coverage going for ya.

      All in all, you got a good idea for a team going for you. I think a Pokemon that has a defensive set up or can inflict status wouldn't be a bad idea for you. I reccomend my favorite Pokemon Roserade, or maybe a Pokemon like Lilligant. Or at the very least maybe throw Toxic on Drapion or Thunder Wave on Gothitelle.

        Okay, I'll have Gothitelle have Thunderbolt and Thunder Wave, and as for Arcanine, I'm not sure on it, I'd rather use something else like a Charmander, but then I'd have to reconfigure the entire team basically, if I did do something like this, it'd be:

        Charizard
        Adamant
        Blaze (duh)
        -Flare Blitz
        -Dragon Claw
        -Fly
        -Iron Tail/Thunderpunch

        And then I'd need a new pokemon for dragon type, as Charizard kinda covers that. My first thoughts go to Flygon, Garchomp, and Haxorus, but I can't use Haxorus, as I've used him before, a lot. So it's between Flygon and Garchomp, but I could also use the extra slot to cover another type, like Normal, if I do this, I'd say Stoutland or Snorlax.
        Out of these, Snorlax stands out the most for it's diverse moveset and high defensive power. Thick Fat would be a handy ability, and the immunity to Ghost would be nice. The only worry would be the slowness.

        Snorlax would go like this:

        Snorlax
        Neutral Nature
        Thick Fat
        -Giga Impact/Body Slam/Return/Strength (STAB Move)
        -Crunch/Fire Punch
        -Zen Headbutt/Seed Bomb
        -Curse

        If I really do need a support pokemon, I could use a grass type like Chickorita, it'd evolve into Meganium and go like this:

        Meganium
        Modest
        Overgrowth
        -Toxic
        -Leaf Storm/Magical Leaf/Energy Ball
        -Leech Seed
        -AncientPower/Hidden Power(depends on type)

        If I'm using Grass Types, Treecko is one of my favorite Pokemon, and I'd love to use him.

        Sceptile
        Adamant
        Overgrowth
        -Leaf Blade
        -Rock Slide/Earthquake
        -Areal Ace/Acrobatics
        -Leech Seed/Night Slash/Seed Bomb/X-Scissor

        So, yeah, I'll swap Arcanine for Charizard, and Dragonite for Snorlax, Meganium, or Sceptile. I'll probably go for Sceptile because I frickin love Treecko, one of the best Starters. Any other suggestions for the sixth slot?

          I'd recommend a Rock or Electric-type Pokemon, as they can take on the Flying types that none of your team resists so far. Rock/Steel types such as Aggron can easily take on Iris' Archeops and Shauntal's Drifblim.
