    Anyway, snarkiness aside, I'm training up a team, hopefully, in Diamond for the Elite 4 onwards. I won't be EV training or battling competitively, most likely, but I may have a kickabout every now and again with my friends, so I'll try to follow all relevant clauses even if I don't really need to.

    Jolteon @ Leftovers
    Impish Nature
    Volt Absorb
    -Baton Pass

    Snorlax @ ?
    Brave Nature
    -Body Slam

    Poliwrath @ ?
    Quiet Nature
    Water Absorb
    -Ice Beam
    -Brick Break

    Gardevoir @ Salac Berry
    Modest Nature
    -Calm Mind

    Marowak @ Thick Club
    Brave Nature
    Rock Head
    -Aerial Ace
    -Brick Break

    Froslass @ Focus Sash
    Timid Nature
    Snow Cloak
    -Ice Beam
    -Shadow Ball
    -Destiny Bond

    Be nice, this is the first time I've built a team xD

    Generally very good. A few things to note:

    - Jolteon with Subs and Baton Pass would love to have a Pinch Berry of some sort since it can pass the boost from that too - Marowak would love to receive a Liechi Berry boost along with some Agility boosts. Also, Timid is a better Nature than Impish, since Impish boosts Jolteon's terrible Defense (which is beyond help to be honest) and dents his good Sp.Attack stat, which you don't really want.

    - Snorlax would love Jolteon's Leftovers. Other than that, Snorlax is fine.

    - With a Quiet Nature, Poliwrath with a Quick Claw would be fun to use, since it gives a chance to offset your lowered Speed entirely and surprise the opponent.

    - For Marowak, drop Flamethrower for either Stone Edge or Rock Slide - Marowak's Base 50 Sp.Attack makes Flamethrower pretty weak, and a Rock-type physical attack would let you punish Flying-types who otherwise resist your main STAB attack, Bonemerang. Also, if you have access to Platinum tutors, Ice Punch is a deadly move to have.

    That's all there is for me to say, see what other people say too.
  3. Marowak also has other moves, the other Elemental Punches and Double-Edge for outright attacking. And Swords Dance can be used too. I really don't want to face a Marowak after it has used Swords Dance.

    Wise Glasses for Poliwrath, maybe? Either that, or generic Leftovers.

    I'd also say that I would prefer Thick Fat over Immunity on Snorlax, but that's only my opinion.
