DPPt/HGSS Need a good team for Pokemon XD

Discussion in 'The Doctor's Clinic' started by POH!KEMON, Nov 12, 2009.

  1. Long time since I've been in the Clinic, but anyway, I need help setting upa good team for XD: Gale of Darkness. Here's what I have so far:

    Jolteon@no item
    Thundershock
    Protect
    Thunder Wave
    Bite

    Houndoom@ no item
    Faint Attack
    Flamethrower
    Bite
    Fire Blast

    And I am currently working on a Crobat, but here is Golbat's status:

    Golbat@ Soothe Bell
    Confuse Ray
    Bite
    Wing Attack
    Swagger

    These are still in progress (hlp neede for these guys as well)

    Here is my team I'm thinking of

    Jolteon@ unknown
    Thunderbolt
    Protect
    Thunder Wave
    Unknown fourth move

    Houndoom
    Flamethrower/Fire Blast
    Crunch/???
    Protect
    And I have no idea what the 4th move should be

    Crobat
    Poison Fang
    Swagger/Confuse Ray
    Areal Ace
    Toxic/Hyper Beam

    Tyranitar
    Dragon Dance
    Earthquake
    Rock Slide
    Sesemic Toss/Selfdestruct (if it can learn it)

    Salamence
    Dragon Claw
    Fly/Areal Ace
    Fire Blast/Earthquake
    Unknown fourth move

    And I'm either choosing between Snorlax or Scizor. Here's movesets for both, I will go with which is best:

    Snorlax@ Lum Berry
    Selfdestruct
    Rest
    Snore
    Protect/Hyper Beam

    or

    Scizor
    Steel Wing
    Siver Wind/Brick Break
    Areal Ace
    Mimic/Protect

    Suggestions?
     
  2. I can help on a few things...

    For Tyranitar, why would you want to teach it self-destruct if it can learn it? While Siesmic Toss isn't my preference, it would be probably be better than Self-Destruct.

    For Snorlax, again, why would you want to have self-destruct on the move list? I know its strong, but it will KO Snorlax and whoever your second Pokemon is (assuming Gale of Darkness is double battles). Hyper Beam is a strong move, especially since the physical/special split didn't happen yet, but it leaves Snorlax open to an attack. I would teach it Headbutt or better yet, a move that covers other types, like Earthquake.

    For Scizor, Teach it Brick Break for more type coverage, since bug attacks are mainly against Psychic pokemon, which your Houndoom and Tyranitar cover with their Dark attacks. Instead of Mimic or Protect, try teaching Scizor Swords Dance, as it will sharply increase its Attack stat.

    For Crobat, keep Toxic over Hyper Beam. By using a Toxic/Confusing combo, it can severely cripple other Pokemon.

    XD's severe limitations with regards to TMs and hold items means trying to make any sort of decent movesets for the game is a near-impossible and overall pointless task since you don't even need good movesets to beat the game. Normally, I'd try to say something at least remotely useful here, but with what little XD has to offer, the best things to do are simply to go with the basics on your movesets and keep your levels high.
