    -ice beam
    -hidden power
    -aqua jet

    nature: adament
    -flare blitz
    -extreme speed
    -wild charge

    nature: modest
    -aura sphere
    -shadow ball
    -extreme speed
    -ice punch

    nature: bold
    -flash cannon

    nature: adamant
    -dragon claw
    -fire punch

    nature: adamant
    -swords dance

    if you can give me as much advice on this team as I cant move on and progress through the game until I am happy with my teams consistency and move pools. Again appreciate all comments given whether negative or positive:)

    Aqua Tail > Substitute. I'm not a big fan of Substitute unless used for Focus Punch or a few other distinct combos. Aqua Tail also sets Gliscor apart from Flygon a bit more.

    Thunder Wave and Signal Beam for Magnezone. The former allows you to get around your speed problem and the latter provides a little extra coverage.

    Mild nature on Samurott, as Timid lowers the power of Aqua Jet.

    ok thankyou:) do you think my team is ok as it is? and do you think its ok to have two steel and two ground types?

    Would appreciate a reply, if you dont think the team isnt great would you possibly suggest a few pokes i could replace for others? would mean alot.

    Well gliscor and Flygon only share a Ice weakness, which are handled easily by other team members. Lucario and Magnezone are a bit more of a problem as they have the exact same weaknesses. Fire types shouldn't be an issue and you have Gliscor and Flygon for Ground types. Without Gliscor you are quite vulnerable to Fighting types though, but as long as you keep Gliscor alive (especially for the battle with Marshall) you should be fine in terms of synergy.

    thanks for the reply, appreciate the feedback it helps, what team do you have for black 2 and white 2?

    Serperior, Darmanitan, Jellicent, Lucario, Braviary, Magnezone. Originally I was going to go for Flygon and/or Gliscor but Gliscor somehow can't learn Fly and being stuck with Vibrava until lvl 45 doesn't sound too good. I'd like to know how it turns out though, as experience is very powerful tool. That and Braviary will never be given so early in the game ever again.

    yeah thats a fairly nice team, Ive never been found of grass type as I find them to be more of a support poke and for me I like to push enemies down with attacking style pokemon and stall with walls, thats true about braviary but do you not think gliscor would be a better choice as braviary can get hit by rock attacks badly (especially against marshal) and electric attacks also I forgot to ask before.. (sorry for questions) what nature should i have my gliscor as? Would appreciate a reply:)

    Also do you have black 2? if so what is your team for that and what other teams would you make instead of the one you already have:) if you want I'l let you know how my team goes.

    @Choice Specs
    What type is your hidden power?
    Naturally I would recommend Fire/Rock
    Other then that it looks pretty good

    nature: adament
    @Choice Scarf or Life Orb
    Moves look fine :3

    nature: modest
    I would Replace Ice Punch and Extreme Speed with something that can take advantage of your Modest Nature.
    Maybe Clam Mind + Earth Power/Psychic/Flash Cannon

    @Air Ballon
    The 2 moves you have are good, maybe for your others you could have Thunder Wave + Volt Switch

    @Leftovers/Life Orb
    Moves are fine, however I would recommend Replacing Fly (or fire punch depending on whether you need Fly for in game) for Dragon Dance

    @Leftovers/Life Orb
    This is fine how it is :3

    Hope this Helps <3
  9. Since your Lucario is Modest, I'd make it fully-Special Attack based.
    For example:

    Lucario @Leftovers or Life Orb
    Modest / Inner Focus
    ~ Nasty Plot
    ~ Aura Sphere
    ~ Dragon Pulse
    ~ Dark Pulse

    I would replace Dark Pulse with Psychic. It is stronger and cover you weakness to fighting types.
