DPPt/HGSS Normal Gym Team Help

Discussion in 'The Doctor's Clinic' started by Kalseng, Oct 11, 2008.

  1. Okay.

    So.

    I'm a "Gym Leader" of a certain organization, more specifically the Normal Gym. I was wondering if y'all could give me some tips on the team. I was allowed two off-type pokemon, and I took that opporotunity... And abused it... To death.

    Tauros @ Salac Berry
    Nature: Adamant
    Ability: Anger Point
    Evs:
    252 Attack
    252 Speed
    6 Health Points
    Moveset:
    Zen Headbut
    Earthquake
    Body Slam
    Substitute

    Porygon-Z @ Salac Berry
    Nature: Modest
    Ability: Download
    Evs:
    252 Special Attack
    252 Speed
    6 Health Points
    Moveset:

    Thunderbolt
    Ice Beam
    Nasty Plot

    Kangaskhan @ Leftovers
    Nature: Adamant
    Evs:
    252 Attack
    252 Speed
    6 Health Points
    Moveset:
    Crush Claw
    Bite
    Earthquake
    Brick Break






    Snorlax @ Chesto Berry
    Nature: Relaxed (Ironic, huh?)
    Ability: Thick Fat
    Evs:
    168 Defense
    168 Special Defense
    172 Health Points
    Moveset:
    Rest
    Curse
    Amnesia
    Body Slam

    Crobat @ Focus Sash
    Nature: Timid
    Ability: Inner Focus
    Evs:
    252 Speed
    128 Defense
    128 Special Defense
    Moveset:
    Haze
    Air Slash
    Confuse Ray
    U-Turn

    Rotom @ Scope Lens
    Nature: Timid
    Ability: Levitate
    Evs:
    252 Speed
    252 Special Attack
    6 Defense
    Moveset:
    Thunderbolt
    Shadow Ball
    Confuse Ray
    Thunder Wave


    So, yeah.

    Any advice will be helpful, although, I've done the EV traiing on everything but the Tauros, and I don't really wanna do it again.

    Other than that,

    Go crazy on the helping.

    [[EDIT: Yeah. Sorry about that, Ruko. >>; I got that changed.]]

    Why no Bibarel, Girafarig, or Togekiss? D:

    I know you didn't ask for a moveset, but this seems like the best place to mention the Bibarel set I came up with [if you can stand to look at it]. It would just make your team a bit more awesome if you didn't abuse the rule that let you use two other typed pokemon XD

    Bibarel @ Leftovers [judging by your Tauros/Porygon, multiple items seem allowed]
    Simple Ability
    Any Special attack or speed lowering Nature [depending on which stats you want most]
    Curse
    Amnesia
    Waterfall
    Secret Power

    Simple doubles the effectiveness of all stat changes [for your opponent too]... Translated, this means that curse will double your attack and defense in the same move, while halving your speed; meanwhile, Amnesia will give you an instant 4x special defense boost. Just hope your opponent doesn't have swords dance and decide to use it.

    Waterfall for basic Physical STAB. The Flinch won't come into play much, especially after Cursing, but there's not really a better choice unless you're willing to sacrifice 10 accuracy for 10 power and go with Aqua Tail.
    Secret Power, again for basic STAB. If you manage to Paralyze your opponent [30% chance] then the flinch just might come into play from Waterfall if you're not still slower than they are. there are many alternative moves here...

    Rock Smash with Simple is just plain evil, if you're able to wait out for the 50% effect to activate a couple of times, you'll be mowing through them.
    You'd lose Grass coverage, but Charge beam would be unexpected and fairly deadly, a 70% chance of doubling your special attack every time. Physical wall breaker too.

    Bibarel still has substandard stats, so before you can get a simple curse or Amnesia in, it'll be really weak and open to attack.




    On to the pokemon you actually posted XD

    Tauros and Porygon-Z look good.. consider a Chople Berry on Porygon-Z, to cover it's only weakness, Wise Glasses will raise it's special attack power even further if not that.

    Possibly consider Sucker Punch on Kangaskhan over Bite, unless you were going for Flinch rather than priority and Power.

    Snorlax doesn't really need Amnesia, it's plenty of a beast without it >>;
    and unless you give it an attack aside from Body Slam, it's entirely walled by ghosts, and fairly well walled by pokemon that resist Normal attacks... The paralysis is nice on them though XD

    I was just talking with you about Crobat, and you decided on U-turn over roost for your own reasons; just wanted to make a note of that because the set says Roost.

    Rotom looks like it has a standard set.. predictable, but it works.
     
  3. For Snorlax, Earthquake and Crunch are options I see often, to not get walled, but one way or the other, you'll be walled by something.

    Earthquake hits the typical Steel and Rock.
    Crunch hits the Ghost.

    Skarmory however, is your worst nightmare, but meh. It' only one Pokemon.

    Personally, I'd be taking Earthquake. Very few Pokemon that resist Return, resist Earthquake. (Gengar, Shedinja and Skarmory being the few that I can think of.)
     
  4. Don't forget Bronzong, Drifblim, and Mismagius. Yeah I know Drifblim is UU, but I thought I should point it out.
