DPPt/HGSS Competitive Battling help

Discussion in 'The Doctor's Clinic' started by ChibiJolteon, Dec 19, 2007.

  1. Well, I'm getting Wi-Fi soon for Diamond and PBR, I've got a hopefully good looking team but I need advice on movesets, recommended nature and EV's. (items I can handle) P.S. to all those who may help me: I do not have most of these pokemon yet, I'm working on getting my FireRed back from my friend so I can actually breed a Charizard and Blastoise.

    My team:
    Blastoise (currently a squirtle) lv.5
    Nature: Adamant EV: none yet

    Umbreon - (eevee right now) lv.1
    Nature:Hardy EV: None yet

    Alakazam - ''

    Charizard - lv. 36
    Nature: Relaxed EV:none
    Fire Fang
    Aerial Ace

    Lucario - lv.8
    Nature: Careful EV: none
    Quick Attack

    Garchomp - Breeding

    I'm a complete n00b to the competitive battling community. So be as harsh as needed... just help me out please?
  2. First: you might want to look at this.

    Then, if you still need help, it helps a ton if you post the pokemon's movesets and natures and held items and things like that.

    Sorry I can't help more, but it's really hard to help without more information than you gave.
  3. Once I get the team... I'll edit this. I know it's a little hard to help with just that.
  4. Well, since some of your pokemon are being hatched, I'll just post two movesets =):


    Fire Fang
    Brick Break/Giga Impact/?

    and for Lucario:

    Lucario @ Expert Belt

    Dark Pulse
    Dragon Pulse
    Aura Sphere
    Psychic/Flash Cannon

    I just wanted to show you those movesets before you hatch them ^_^
  5. Um, lightchaos, there is no such move as drak pulse.

    And Garchomp should hold Leftovers.
  6. I modified my post XD

    Thanks for telling me that ( lol )
  7. As long as you're breeding Garchomp, get Iron Head over Fire Fang. Higher base power, and it still takes care of ice-types.

    It's all about preference, but my Garchomp's moveset's something like this:
    Dragon Rush (You may prefer Dragon Claw for it's accuracy; mine's more an ingame fighter, so it can get away with missing.)
    Iron Head
  8. And the reason most use Fire Fang over Iron head is because of poor coverage on Iron Head's part and Fire Fang hits Skarmory, Forteress and Brongzong harder.
  9. okay... updated with certain pokemon attacks and natures. I've looked at a ton of your suggestions and I'm really liking them. My only problem is with Fire Fang on Garchomp. I love the idea, but mine's a male, it doesn't know fire fang but I want to thank everyone a ton for the help. Once I get everyone else, I'll be able to help some more and give you more options.
    Also, if I give a pokemon EXP. Share will it still get EV's or not?
  10. [size=8pt]A pokemon holding an EXP. Share will get the same amount of EVs as if it was in the battle itself.
    Meaning that unlike experience points, the EV points gained aren't split between the battler and the holder.[/size]

    Friend Code:
    You need to teach Garchomp Fire Fang using a Heart Scale obtained in the Underground. Take him to the Move Tutor in Pastoria (in a house near the berry patch) while you have a Heart Scale in your bag, and you'll be able to teach him the move.
