    Lol. So any further improvements? Also, with natures, i factored in the need for them through the game. I cant give Typhlosion Modest when he mainly learns physical moves while leveling. Not dumping any of these either, this took planning. I will use these against Red too.

    If this is an in-game team, I would suggest switching Fly for U-turn on Fearow and Strength for Megahorn on Nidoking. Otherwise, you're gonna have a bad time!
    Other than that, it's very good. I have no further critiques for it.

    I understand U Turn but Megahorn? Megahorn is a rare and most powerful bug move, ill give strength to some HM slave

    Strength is fairly useful. 80 Base Power. Neutral damage. Its not Return, but it would make Nidoking fare better against gyms (since no gyms in Johto have Bug weakness)
    But I understand where you're coming from. Megahorn is really powerful. Machamp's moves are pretty solid, so maybe Shadow Claw instead?

    That being said, the first E4 member uses psychic types which megahorn would tear thru on nidoking. However he's poison type so it's kind of gimmicky. up to you really.

    A bit of a gamble isnt it? Maybe I could give it a payapa berry, i could trade it over from my platinum. However, the accuracy may or may not be worth it. Ill go weigh my options

    My guess would be to replace Megahorn with Strength. I mean, you still have Shadow Claw for Will and Morty, whereas you're gambling with Megahorn and Will (That is IF you can outspeed the Psychic).

    Im EV training speed plus I love being overleveled(by like 10 levels AT LEAST) so speed isnt too troublesome. Plus he dosent use the absolute fastest pokemon, the fastest is probably Gardevoir post ending.

    tis true. and if you're running signal beam on ampharos, who can also deal with xatu, you dont really need another bug type move.

    you can always run rain dance on lapras instead of psychic and give thunder 100% accuracy and boosts surf, and then swap t-bolt on ampharos for thunder as well, or just run t-bolt on lapras. i wouldn't recommend thunder without rain dance support though. not really worth the accuracy loss.

    Maybe swap drill peck on fearow for brave bird, since the shell bell will counteract the recoil, plus it's the strongest physical flying move, so you also get stab. You're looking at a 180 base power attack iirc, which would be nice especially with fearow's speed.

    I would say maybe swap bulk up for bullet punch for priority, and run life orb for revenge killing.

    Can Fearow learn Brave Bird anyway? If so how, cause I dont recall it by level up and theres no tm. Is it a bp move?

    No, its an Egg move. You have to breed it with Staraptor or whoever else learns it.

    Sorry i dont do breeding moves, but its an awesome attack. Ill consider it

    Seriously, drop the Fearow. It isn't a good pokémon at all. You better take Skarmory or Altaria as a Flying type.

    I want a physical sweeper early on in the game, plus really any pokemon works well in game. I could probably trade a Staraptor over from my platinum, or a Salamence
