    This is my first post to the PokeCommunity. I did my best to make sure that this is the right place to post, so just let me know if this needs to be moved.


    I recently started building a wifi battle team. Currently, I've done about 7 double battles, and won 5/7 with them. The battles that I lost, consisted of two Japanese kids with 400+( I believe) won battles. And as we all know, Japanese people are good at things.

    It'd be nice if people can share their thoughts, recommend improvements, and suggest ideas to my team. Under some of the Pokemon's moves, I labeled if I am planning to change it. Additionally, I found a really good resource named "Smogon" or something, so I am using their information to improve my team.

    Lastly, I am building a few more teams, and possibly swapping Pokemon to have a selection of teams to choose from. I will use your suggestions on this team, to enhance my next one.

    Here is my full team:

    [Kochta] [Fighting/Steel] --Lucario--
    Nature: Quiet
    Ability: Steadfast
    Item: Expert Belt
    Move #1: Reversal (Will be changed)
    Move #2: ExtremeSpeed (Will be changed)
    Move #3: Copycat (Will be changed)
    Move #4: Psychic

    Notes: I am aware that Lucario needs a lot of work, please give me some suggestions for moves =)

    [Maverick] [Rock/Ground] --Tyranitar--
    Nature: Impish
    Ability: Sand Stream
    Item: Leftovers
    Move #1: Earthquake
    Move #2: Protect
    Move #3: Crunch
    Move #4: Stone Edge

    Notes: When I can predict that one or more moves that are super-effective will be directed against Maverick, I simply use protect.

    [Verdict] [Fire/Ghost] --Chandelure--
    Nature: Docile
    Ability: Flame Body
    Item: Rocky Helmet

    Move #1: Shadow Ball
    Move #2: Fire Blast
    Move #3: Psychic
    Move #4: Flash (Will be changed)

    Notes: Verdict is one of my fire Pokemon (I have two) However, both of my fire Pokemon are not entirely fire. Verdict is Fire/Ghost, while my Volcarona is Fire/Bug. Please share your thoughts about those combinations,

    [Sevrah] [Water] --Samurott--
    Nature: Naive
    Ability: Torrent
    Item: Lustrous Orb

    Move #1: Surf
    Move #2: Scald
    Move #3: Dive
    Move #4: Swords Dance

    Notes: Samurott has plenty of water moves. I wish to modify a couple of them to make him more versatile. Please share your move ideas

    [Paragon] [Dragon] --Haxorus--
    Nature: Brave
    Ability: Mold Breaker
    Item: Dragon Fang

    Move #1: Outrage
    Move #2: Dragon Claw
    Move #3: Guillotine (Will be changed)
    Move #4: Swords Dance

    Notes: Paragon is my main damage dealer, I tend to pull him out to combat when I am starting to lose the battle. He's very strong, and he never really let's me down.

    [Tempest] [Bug/Fire] --Volcarona--
    Nature: Relaxed
    Ability: Flame Body
    Item: Quick Claw

    Move #1: Bug Buzz
    Move #2: Quiver Dance
    Move #3: Heat Wave (Could be changed)
    Move #4: Fly

    Notes: I combine Tempest and Maverick (My Tyranitar) for a commonly used combination. Volcarona uses fly, while Tyranitar uses Earthquake. I can also go the other way around and use heat wave/ protect. Personally, I find this very effective in my front line. Share your thoughts
