Ok... glad I found these boards. Looking for some help with my team. Pretty sure I have a good setup and need a little help with a couple of my pokemon. I have read about EVs and all, but not sure I want to put in the extra effort/time of using them. I am a little leary of breeding moves on (I have big old book for reference on all movesets) but I am open to the idea of it as well as rebreeding for better natures and such. Withour further ado here I go: Swampert Adamant nature Item: not sure what to use really (using amulet coin atm just to earn money going through the E4 over and over) Hammer Arm Earthquake - STAB Avalanche Waterfall - STAB Aggron (rockhead) Docile nature (I know I can improve that one, was just ported in from my sapphire) Item: Wide Lens (I like the help with Iron Tail and Stone Edge) Double-Edge Brick Break Iron Tail - STAB Stone Edge - STAB Salamance Mild nature (actually worked out really well Atk and Sp Atk are only a couple points off from each other) Item: Blackglasses (once again sorta just thrown in there to help with an attack) Dragon Claw - STAB Flamethrower Crunch Fly (going to change to Aerial Ace soon) - STAB Gardevoir Naughty nature (I know I need to redo this one, torn between modest and mild/rash just to improve defense a little) Item: Rose Incense (once again sorta just thrown in there to help with an attack) Thunderbolt Psychic - STAB Hypnosis (just to help give breathing room if I need it) Magical Leaf Abamasnow (I need a LOT of help with this one, figuring out a good moveset is really messing me up, going for Sp Atk btw) Docile nature (once again, need to rebreed this one to get something good) Item: no idea what to use, though was leaning towards Leftovers Toxic Ice Beam - STAB Energy Ball - STAB Giga Drain (didn't know what to stick in here, and he just always seemed to need the extra boost of hp drain) Last spot I am torn between Ampharos and Gallade (or replacing Gardevoir with Gallade) Ampharos Timid nature Item: no idea Power Gem Thunderbolt - STAB Signal Beam ??? Gallade Impish nature (I wanted the little extra boost to defense) Item: no idea Night Slash Leaf Blade Psycho Cut - STAB Close Combat or Brick Break - STAB I would love to hear what you guys have to say on all this. I am pretty new at designing a team. I have several others that I wouldn't mind using, but just the thought of getting all these other guys up to a decent level is a bit daunting in and of itself.
