DPPt/HGSS Looking for help with my team

Discussion in 'The Doctor's Clinic' started by Platypus, Jul 29, 2009.

  1. I'm looking for help with bettering my main team. I really have about a team and a half, and I tend to switch the pokemon around quite a lot.
    Going to start with the pokemon I typically have in my team and then the extras.

    Lily- Charizard (brave) + Razor Claw
    HP= 289 Atk= 227 Def= 191 Sp. Atk= 251 Sp. Def= 200 Speed= 218
    Fire Blast
    Overheat
    Flamethrower
    Heat Wave

    Tortuga- Torterra (quiet) + Rose Incense
    HP= 327 Atk= 278 Def= 258 Sp. Atk= 229 Sp. Def= 194 Speed= 131
    Earthquake
    Leaf Storm
    Energy Ball
    Stone Edge

    Becca- Lapras (hardy) + Splash Plate
    Hp= 378 Atk= 223 Def= 207 Sp. Atk= 209 Sp. Def= 243 Speed= 165
    Ice Beam
    Thunder
    Sheer Cold
    Hydro Pump

    Ajax- Relicanth (naive) + Earth Plate
    Hp= 337 Atk= 241 Def= 299 Sp. Atk= 134 Sp. Def= 156 Speed= 187
    Blizzard
    Stone Edge
    Earthquake
    Hydro Pump

    Jupiter- Ampharos (quiet) + Magnet
    Hp= 301 Atk= 180 Def= 205 Sp. Atk= 313 Sp. Def= 236 Speed= 141
    Thunderbolt
    Iron Tail
    Focus Blast
    Thunder

    Those are the main ones I tend to use. The next two get switched out as the first pokemon in my party.

    Cromis- Skarmory (naughty) + Soft Sand
    Hp= 271 Atk= 181 Def= 286 Sp. Atk= 124 Sp. Def= 162 Speed= 178
    Stealth Rock
    Flash Cannon
    Spikes
    Dark Pulse

    Jack- Aggron (brave) + Stone Plate
    Hp= 306 Atk= 272 Def= 371 Sp. Atk= 170 Sp. Def= 150 Speed= 135
    Stealth Rock
    Fire Blast
    Thunder
    Blizzard

    and these next ones get randomly switched into my party at times...

    Hp= 293 Atk= 226 Def= 198 Sp. Atk= 253 Sp. Def= 203 Speed= 236

    Hydro Pump
    Blizzard
    {switches with Becca}

    Energy Ball
    Petal Dance
    SolarBeam
    Giga Impact
    {switches with Tortuga}

    Zaifan- Manectric (brave) + Magnet

    Hoping to get a Skarmory the knows Sky Attack, Brave Bird, Spikes, and Stealth Rock. If I do it will take the first position in my team.

    Any help you can give would be wonderful!

    are you looking for a new main team to use, or just some moveset help in general?
     
  3. Either, both, whatever you think would help. *shrug*

    mmkay, so, let the helping commence!

    First off, you might want to do some rebreeding/catching, becuase the natures aren't really doing much justice. Charizard would probably want a Modest nature, which helps it a lot more than Brave does. Brave lowers Charizard's reasonable speed and boosts its low Attack, while Modest raises the respectable Sp.Attack stat whilst lowering Attack. That, along with having four Fire moves, isn't acceptable, because it kills any chance that Charizard has of getting coverage. Here's my current 'Zard:

    Charizard@Life Orb
    Modest
    Blaze
    -Heat Wave/Flamethrower(depends on preference)
    -Air Slash/Dragon Pulse
    -Ominous Wind/Hidden Power Electric
    -Roost
    Heat Wave or Flamethrower for preferred STAB, with each packing serious heat. Air Slash is for secondary STAB, while Dragon Pulse rids you of Salamence, Dragonite, Garchomp, Kingdra or Flygon. Ominous Wind can demolish the frail Psychics and Ghosts, like Azelf or Gengar, while HP Electric covers your Water Weakness. Roost restores damage taken from Life Orb recoil, allowing Charizard to damage on sight all over again.

    Torterra absolutely shudders at having a Quiet nature, which does absolutely nothing to strengthen his high Attack and weakens his good Defense, so Impish or Adamant work wonders. Leaf Storm and Energy ball would have to go, while possibly adding something along the lines of Crunch and Wood Hammer for coverage and STAB, respecitvely. EQ and Stone Edge provide hand-in-hand coverage, leading to a moveset looking like this:

    Torterra@Choice Band
    Adamant
    Overgrow
    -Wood Hammer
    -Earthquake
    -Crunch
    -Stone Edge

    Lapras can go either Sp.Attacker, Attacker, or Mixed, but also is a great user of Curse. Sheer Cold's extremely low accuracy is horrendous, so that'll need to be dropped. You can replace it with Psychic for some extra coverage, but can go a whole different route with Curse.
    Lapras@Leftovers
    Careful
    Water Absorb
    -Curse
    -Waterfall
    -Ice Shard/Avalance
    -Return
    After a few Curses, Ice Shard turns into a powerful priority attack, while Avalance makes an even greater revenge move, both of which go great with low Speed. Waterfall makes for more STAB, while Return can hit other Water types.

    I can't suggest anything for Relicanth because I've never used one, so I have no experience on what would work best.

    Ampharos won't be needing Iron Tail or Thunder, with both having semi-okay accuracy and the former not serving his Special Attack needs.
    Ampharos@Choice Specs
    Modest
    Static
    -Thunderbolt
    -Focus Blast
    -Hidden Power Grass
    -Signal Beam/Sleep Talk/Toxic
    HP Grass gets rid of most bulky Grounds and gets good coverage with Signal Beam. Ampharos can be a decent bulky sleep absorber, or can support the team by using Toxic to get rid of Special Tanks. T-bolt and Focus Blast speak for themselves.

    I won't comment on the others because I don't want to have a super-large post, but I also don't use some of them, so I'd have no idea what to recommend if I did. Hope this helps!
     
  5. Thanks a lot. ^_^
    I know I need to train up new ones with different natures... *sigh*
    I've known that for a while, and kind of been putting it off.

    Thanks so much for your help!
