    So here is my team so far on my black 2 game, I would like ratings and some advice and any ideas for my 6th member.
    Serperior (Starter)
    Ability:Overgrow
    -Serious Nature
    -Leech Seed
    -Aqua Tail
    -Leaf Blade
    -Coil

    Vaporeon
    Ability:Water Absorb
    -Naughty Nature
    -Surf
    -Acid Armor
    -Ice beam
    -Attract

    Drapion
    Ability:Battle Armor
    -Adamant Nature
    -Cross Poison
    -Toxic Spikes
    -Acupressure
    Crunch

    Magnezone
    Ability:Sturdy
    -Leftovers
    -Modest Nature
    -Discharge
    -Magnet Rise
    -Charge Beam
    -Flash Cannon

    Braviary
    Ability: Defiant
    -Sharp Beak
    -Careful Nature
    -Fly
    -SuperPower
    -Crush Claw
    -Aerial Ace

    I'm one who pays attention to natures and tries to get good ones, but my early pokemon (Serperior and Vaporeon) Didn't get good natures because I wasn't sure which one would be the most beneficial (Serperior) or the pokemon was rare and I just got the first one i saw (vaporeon). All the others were actually coincidental.
    Now about my 6th member, I need coverage from grass and electric types. I was thinking of something that can easily hit both, maybe a dragon type but I would like to hear suggestions from you all that read this. So thanks in advance.

    Signal Beam over either Discharge or Charge Beam on Magnezone.

    Return over Crush Claw on Braviary. IIRC, even with Sheer Force boost, Crush Claw is still weaker than Return.

    Naughty is a bad Nature for Vaporeon. Try getting another Eevee.


    Drapion @ Scope Lens
    Adamant/Jolly Nature, Sniper ability
    ~Cross Poison
    ~Night Slash
    ~Earthquake
    ~Ice Fang

    Charge Beam and Discharge have two different purposes, so your Magnezone is fine.

    Return > Crush Claw on Braviary. More PP and more power. Superpower over Aerial Ace. You already have fly and it is not like the AI switches.

    Naughty is not that bad. It is not like it hinders any of his stats. As long as a Pokemon doesn't have an ability that hinders it, I don't see a point in restarting a Pokemon. Substitute over Attract post-game, but use Toxic over it during the main game.

    hmm those both sound like good ideas. I'll take the drapion idea and the braviary and vaporeon ideas from azeem. Any suggestions for who i should use for my 6th? And btw this is for wifi battles too.

    If it is for wifi too, you might as well get it as a Bold Vaporeon.

    Idk if Aqua Tail is a good move on Serperior. It might get knocked out before it can cause damage to a fire type. Have it hold a miracle seed.

    Vaporeon should hold a mystic water. You can get a miracle seed or a mystic water from the woman in the battle company at castelia city.

    I would replace Vaporeon with Jellicent or keep Vaporeon but add Chandelure. Some other good pokes for a 6th team member would be Arcanine or Flygon.

    I assume you never see how much bulk and speed Serperior has?


    for in-game purpose, eventually Magnezone's SAtk becomes so high the SAtk boost from Charge Beam is no longer needed, making the move pointless.
    Still, before that happens Charge Beam is a good move to have.

    alright i shall search. So any ideas for my 6th member? I've been cycling around a few pokemon like my adamant tyranitar aron sneasel and gigalith and excadrill (but i truthfully didn't want to use it this game cuz i had it last game). and i also have a brave dragonite and a careful hariyama. I am trying to get some coverage with fire and dragon type attacks. I'm looking for a bagon in hidden grottos to maybe fill the spot.

    Bagon works. A good Salamence set is:
    Dragon Dance
    Outrage
    Earthquake
    Roost/Fire Blast

    Breed a Dragonite with D Dance and Outrage with a Salamence/Shellgon.
