  1. Yeah, I've been looking through my team lately, and I don't really know if it's good, like I went to a pokemon comparing website where I compared my team pokemon with a bunch of others and I found a lot stronger pokemon, I had some help from my little bro crafting this team (I started a new Platinum game like a year after he got his Diamond game so he had a lot of pokemon). But I just want to see if Soemone could take a lookj at it and kind of..... I dunno, assess it I guess.... or like critique it or something, just give me some insight of what I need to do with my team.

    N.B. I have only 7 gym badges and I'm getting my main part of my team (all of the pokemon except for Palkia) to level 50 before the last gym. If you suggest a higher level don't be afraid to say it, I'm really open to positive criticism. Just don't go overboard....... lol

    Palkia: Held Item: Dragon Fang (the person I got it from didn't give me the illustrious orb)
    Level: 70
    Type: Dragon-Water
    Max HP: 224
    Nature: Sassy
    Attack: 190

    Sp. Defense: 196
    Speed: 130
    Ability: Pressure
    Spacial Rend
    Heal Block
    Earth Power
    Surf (It was better than Slash, and for the sake of STAB)

    In regards to the Palkia, I got it through a trade, I wanted to replace a Golduck, which wasn't very good I should've gotten a Floatzel, and at the same time I always get Floatzel so I wanted to get Palkia. I'm not going to train him, or use him that much, I'm dfinitely going to use him against Flint in the Elite four considering that the other pokemon that has super effective attacks against Fire-Types is part Grass.

    This is kind of a re-make teeam really, because before this my team was going to be:

    But with the conflict of Ice-Type pokemon I swapped up the team for better pokemon, now I have the threat of Ground-Type pkemon being super effective against half of my party pokemon, and then there's also a smaller threat of Ice-Type pokemon against my team as well considering Pidgeot and Torterra.

    So guys, if you can give me some feed-back on my team that would be great.
  2. Thing is it seems you are looking for an in-game team right now since you haven't finished the game yet. Thing is with in-game teams, so as long as you have type balance and high enough levels none of them are bad. It's when it gets to competitive battling that more factors come into play.

    There's really not a whole lot to say here. Even by in-game standards, your Pidgeot, Magmortar and Lucario movesets are awful. Two Flying-type attacks on Pidgeot makes no sense when it also gets STAB from Normal-type moves such as Return, and if I were your Magmortar I wouldn't like you either, because three Fire-type moves + Rock Climb cripples its otherwise impressive coverage. Lucario, well...3 Fighting-type moves + Swords Dance is a disgrace - a Lv.1 Gastly would wall you forever, and on something with the coverage that Lucario has, three Fighting-type attacks only is just abysmal.

    I suggest you read this topic:


    ...and check all the posts which talk about movesets. Although this thread is primarily about competitive battling, getting your movesets as close to competitive standard as possible is definitely the best idea for getting through the game quickly and effectively.
  4. Dude I need to ask you something. Like I know you're trying to help. But you aren't helping, you're just criticizing. I mean you're not giving any help what so ever! So please just don't post here.

    Actually, since I moderate this board, I have every right to post here. I've given you the help you need in that link - that's the best help you can get as of right now.

    However, since you don't seem to want help, topic locked. If you don't want your team to get criticized...well, try not to post such bad teams in the future.
