i basically have a full team, or to clear a cave or sumntin i use my lv18 HmSlave bibarel. Im working on doing sumtin like giving practical hm's to each of my pkmn (eg i have elready taught gastrodon surf). But yeah, having a full party is way better.
I always trained 6 pokémon. Sometimes even more (people get confused when they ask me about my team and I give them 7-8 poké names), I mean, you can carry only six at time, but Bill's/that chick's/Bebe's computer or even Daycare couple can always store others for you so..... yeah. And some pokémon are so irresistible I HAVE TO train them. /dork
What's funny - I rarely train starters. Usually there are bunch of weak normal-types in my team, but no starter. I like challenge.
;359; Of course, I'd never Just have one Pokemon For the E4.
Once D/P Comes to The UK, My team is gonna be My dark gym, Houndoom, Cacturne, Crawdaunt, Sableye, Murkrow, (It'll evolve though.) And Absol.
All my friends are getting either Diamond or Pearl, I'm getting Pearl, so I Should be able to get them all, If not, I'll Just do pal park... ;359;
(And yes I'm quite aware that I have to see all The sinnoh dex pokemon And beat the E4 before Pal Park.)
