Help building/balancing my team (Black 2)

Discussion in '5th Gen In-Game RMT' started by nsac91, Jan 17, 2013.

    I'm new here and I was wondering if you guys could help me by suggesting some way of balancing my team to deal with the Elite 4 and the rest of the game (currently at Victory Road). I know it's not hard to beat the main storyline, but I just wanna be prepared and I feel like I'm missing something here.

    *Some things you should know:
    - I do not EV train before competitive.
    - I use the first specimen I encounter of the pokemon I want for my team. (I don't care for natures atm)
    - Keep in mind that I haven't finished the game yet, so there's a lot of TMs I don't have acces to.
    - I don't care if I have to train a whole team from scratch, I just wanna have fun LOL.

    Here's my current team:

    Emboar @ Charcoal
    Lvl. 63

    Arm Thrust
    Flare Blitz
    Head Smash

    Haxorus @ Draco Plate
    Lvl. 61

    Swords Dance
    Dragon Claw
    Aerial Ace

    Flygon @ Expert Belt

    Rock Slide
    Dragon Claw

    Darkrai @ Leftovers
    Lvl. 65

    Faint Attack

    Lucario @ Scope Lens
    Lvl. 60

    Close Combat
    Swords Dance
    Dragon Pulse
    Aura Sphere

    Samurott @ Mystic Water
    Lvl. 64

    Aqua Tail
    Ice Beam
    Hydro Pump

    Other pokemon I have trained and/or have access to:
    Ho oh
    Omanyte (DW)
    Aggron - Iron Tail, Thunder, Surf, Iron Head.
    Escavalier - Bug Buzz, Fury Cutter, False Swipe, Headbutt.
    Kabutops (DW) - Aqua Jet, Endure, Flail, Slash.
    Golduck - Disable, Zen Headbutt, Aqua Tail, Surf.

    THANK YOU!!!!

    [First Edit: added Samurott to party, updated pokemon Lvl., Zoroark got Flamethrower]
    [Second Edit: updated pokemon Lvl. and movesets, league beaten]
    [Third Edit: added Darkrai to party (replaced Zoroark), updated pokemon Lvl. and moves.]

    Well, after you defeat the E4, try getting these.

    Hasty/Naive Nature
    ~Work Up
    ~Bullet Punch
    ~Shadow Ball
    ~Aura Sphere

    Hasty Nature (I assume this one is evolved from N's Zorua)
    ~Night Daze/Dark Pulse
    ~Focus Blast/Low Sweep
    ~Return/U-Turn/Aerial Ace

    Mild/Rash Nature
    ~Brick Break
    ~Wild Charge/Rock Slide

    Adamant Nature, Mold Breaker ability
    ~Dragon Dance
    ~Dragon Claw
    ~Rock Slide

    Mild/Rash Nature
    ~Rock Slide
    ~Dragon Claw

    regarding Flygon & Haxorus, they have similar set, the only difference is that one can go Mixed, the other can't, one gets STAB on EQ, the other does not.
    So maybe replace one of them with something else.

    Chandelure is always helpful for me.

    Flygon and Haxorus on the same team might not be a good idea, since Iris' Dragon Pokemon can attack you with Dragon moves.

    Thanks for the replies!

    lollygag: Which one would you replace? what would you recommend as a substitute?

    ;461; ?

    Btw, I now have a samurott as a 6th, but need a better moveset.

    Samurott @ Mystic Water
    Lvl. 58

    Aqua Tail
    Ice Beam
    Aqua Jet

    azeem40 Pokemon is fun!

    After the E4 when you want to beat Iris again, just run this set:
    Haxorus @ Life Orb/Draco Plate
    Ability: Mold Breaker
    Dragon Dance
    Brick Break
    Dragon Claw

    Just set up a few X Defends and X SpDs, live the hit, use DD once, and proceed to OHKO her whole team (minus Aggron) with Dragon Claw. Before fighting Haxorus, make sure you DD once more, then finish it off.

    For Samurott

    -Ice Beam (For Iris)
    -Aqua Tail
    -Aqua Jett/Superpower/Swords Dance (Filler spot but Superpower and Aqua Jett can be usefull)

    And keep the Mystic Water.

    Thank you for all the input!

    I've noticed I have a hard time against water pokemon... what to do, oh what to do?

    You could give Emboar Wild Charge or Lucario T-Punch to help with water types.

    What do you think about adding Darkrai to party? I already did, so what would you do for his moveset?

    Thank you!
    :D :D :D

    Definitely replace Darkrai's Hypnosis with Dark Void when it learns the move. Dark Void is much better than Hypnosis.
