My First 5th Gen RMT... obviously

    HI! Seeing as this is the 5th Gen In-Game RMT, don't yell at me for EVlessness or whether or not a starmie/heatran/infernape etc. murders my team. I'm only really interested in the new pokemon, so don't suggest any oldies.... or Dream World abilities ;D Thanks
    Also, on one last note, I'm getting WHITE

    Daikenki @???
    - Surf
    - Ice Beam
    - Grass Knot
    - Night Slash
    Starter. Won't get rid of him as I'm in an agreement that the first battle with me and my friends must include our starters, so I should raise it.

    Goruugo @???
    Iron Fist
    - Fly
    - Earthquake
    - Shadow Punch
    - Hammer Arm

    My flier. Would've used Wargle, but I think this guy looks cooler and I get it slightly earlier

    Doryuuzu @???
    Sand Throw
    - Swords dance
    - Cut --> Rock Slide
    - Earthquake
    - Strength --> X-Scissor

    Unfortunately, this guy ends up as a sort-of HM slave. It's the earliest thing I get after daikenki.

    Shanderaa @Choice Scarf?
    Flash Fire
    - Will-o-wisp
    - Shadow Ball
    - Flamethrower
    - Energy ball

    Special attacker, and I love this guy. Won't get rid of him whatsoever.

    Kirikizan @???
    Competitive Spirit
    - Night slash
    - Stone Edge
    - X-Scissor
    - Return

    Power Ranger as a pokemon? Great. Like this guy, but open to suggestions on other 'mon due to the fact he is late in the storyline, like Goruugo. Great attack.

    Desukan @Leftovers
    -Shadow Ball
    -Nasty Plot
    -Energy Ball

    This thing is competing with Murkrow and Drifblim as my favourite pokemon of all time. Not getting rid of. Ever. (Holy popsickle, my favourites are either gothic or dead x_x ) Great defencively and nasty plot makes for a viable Special Attacker. :)

    On a final note, feel free to replace things here with any other Isshu pokemon EXCEPT: Emboar, Jaroda, Gigaiasu (darn you trade evolution :( ), Roopushin (don't like him anyway), Erufuun, Zoroark, Gochiruzeru, Shubarugo, Barujiina and any legendary.

    However, I'm definitely keeping Desukan and Doryuuzu unless I can be persuaded into believing that there is something better.
    With convincing, I'll change Shanderaa and Daikenki (and Goruugo - but suggest another Flier).

    Dive and Waterfall is way after the E4 (Dive is the most useless, seeing as there's only 4 spots you can use it on, and it's only for collecting items)

    Mild/Rash Nature
    ~Surf/Boiling Water
    ~Ice Beam
    ~Grass Knot
    ~Aerial Ace/Night Slash

    Last move is only for Shedinja, really.

    Adamant Nature
    ~Night Slash
    ~Swords Dance

    Revenge to utilize its low Speed, and it gives great coverage along with Night Slash.

    For Goruggo, get the one with Iron Fist ability.

    Adamant Nature
    ~Shadow Punch
    ~Stone Edge

    Fly is okay, you'll be using only the first three moves most of the time anyway.

    Doryuuzu is fine, just replace Strength with X-Scissor. You will never needs Strength anymore once you've dropped all the stones in Isshu down the hole - they remains permanently there.

    Not sure about the others.

    Thank you for replying :)

    Diakenki will stay mainly special and will keep Surf - I try for 1/2 and 1/2 special and physical and shanderaa and desukan - the other 2 specials, desukan is a tank and thus has a relatively bad spA.

    Regarding Kirikizan (and possibly shanderaa/goruugo), who's helpful throughout the storyline that I can get reasonably early on i.e. first 4 gyms?

    Will edit main post :D

    For Goroogu:
    Adamant/Iron Fist
    -Hammer Arm/Focus Punch
    -Shadow Punch

    Fighting/Ghost over Quake Edge IMO. Hammer Arm is the no.1 option. Focus Punch is more powerful and gets Iron Fist boost, but requires Pyschic levels of prediction or Substitute. That leads to you possibly losing Earthquake, which is bad almost everywhere. Fly for utility.

    And for Desukan:
    -Evil Eye/Shadow Ball
    -Nasty Plot
    -Energy Ball

    Who cares for tanking? I certainly don't. Shadow Ball is more reliable as it is powerful before the opponent is statused. Status, Will-o-Wisp is preferred. Nasty Plot. Muhahahaahaaaa! Gives you pretty awesome power. Energy Ball for coverage.

    ^ I must've missed Nasty Plot.... oops. Using your Desukan now :)

    I'm guessing Hammer Arm doesn't get the Iron Fist boost, but I'll have it anyway. That also means no Sub.
