    like the title says, i'm having trouble with the pokemon world tounrament, the world leaders to be specific, i hope i don't have to raise completely new pokemon... if my team is seriously that bad i would like someone to let me know.

    quick attack
    toxic
    tailwind
    fly

    magnezone brave nature magnet pull
    thunderbolt
    volt switch
    flash cannon
    substitute

    lucario jolly nature inner focus
    close combat
    dig
    shadow ball
    extremespeed

    serperior mild nature overgrow
    coil
    leaf blade
    aerial ace
    toxic

    azumarill bold nature huge power

    aqua tail
    ice punch
    rain dance

    zoroark with hasty nature
    dark pulse
    flamethrower
    shadow claw
    nasty plot

    well, i'm now rebuilding my team to the natures suggested:
    steps completed:
    1.catch a ditto
    2.hatched zoura with hardy nature
    3.caught a new marill and golduck
    4.successfully EV trained zoroark, placed 1st Pokemon into battle box
    5.hatched a marill with lonely nature (it was the closest i could get to adamant)
    6.caught a magnemite with mild nature (again, closest i could get to modest, i also changed its ability to sturdy)
    7.successfully EV trained marill, placed 2nd pokemon into battle box
    8.first world leaders win

    current goals:
    finish azumarill's moves
    find a held item for azumarill

    Comments in bold.

    You're going to want to rebreed all of your team to get better natures, since natures are important in things like the Subway and PWT (a 10% change to stats is quite significant). Also, you might want to list items and EVs if your Pokemon have any. Hope this helps.

    i don't know exactly how to find out EV's but i guess its unfortunate that i have to rebuild my entire team, so i guess it doesn't matter anyways

    for when i DO rebuild my team, what EV's should i focus on training?

    as far as items go i only have these ones:
    air balloon
    dark gem
    grass gem
    rocky helmet
    steel gem

    i also forgot my last pokemon:
    zoroark with hasty nature
    dark pulse
    flamethrower
    shadow claw
    nasty plot

    ah well, currently i plan to breed each of my party Pokemon until i have the natures zhanton suggested, then i will try to EV train them (as in giving the held item for the stat making it first and switching out to one of my tougher ones), and during that time try getting each of the moves suggested.

    also by the way, does anyone know how to find out exact EV values of a Pokemon? i don't feel like writing down stuff for each and every single encounter i fight.

    I don't see a point in a Dragon move on a non-Dragon type. It won't hit as hard as an SE hit. Replace it with Substitute. It will prevent status, something that can hamper his walling ability.

    hmm... is hardy a good nature for zoroark (no stat changes)? well, i guess so because i do plan on using both special and physical attacks anyway

    nah, it's better to use Hasty/Naive to boost Speed, or Mild/Rash/Lonely/Naughty to boost offensive power. Zoroark is a glass cannon anyway, so it won't be bothered by its defense/sdef being lowered, since they're already low to begin with.

    In fact, N's Zorua you got during the storyline is a good one for Mixed set, it has Hasty Nature, and fixed to possess all 30 IVs.


    Zoroark
    Hasty Nature
    ~Night Daze
    ~Flamethrower
    ~Focus Blast/Low Sweep/Hidden Power (due to the all 30 IVs, its Hidden Power is Fight with 70 base power)
    ~Return/U-Turn

    i gotten n's zoura and already used it throughout the storyline, meaning my EV's on it aren't really that well spent
