Thanks! Glad to know I'm not alone!

I like your team as well. I ended up using Simisage in White - he's awesome. I wasn't going to at first, but Pansage was my monkey so I used him early on and I never wanted to get rid of him. Always wanted to try Weavile out also, maybe next time!
Exactly my expression when reading your earlier post!

Yea, I used one in Black alongside my Emboar and I still am. I also have used Weavile since Pokemon Diamond, alongside Electivire, I guess Weavile will stay, but Electivire got unlucky. :p

Haha nice choices! Your team is EXACTLY like mine, except I'm using Unfezant instead of Flygon. Funniest part is that I love Flygon and I was totally about to use it. I eventually decided against it because I wanted to try another Unova Pokemon, plus I didn't want to use two green Pokemon (I know, I'm weird). :)
Haha, I'm kinda bothered by that too. But I needed something that could fly and there isn't much that I'm interested in training. I want Braviery but I'll be playing Black 2 =/

So far I have Lucario and Darumaka...it's tough to choose from so many pkmn.I think I want a Heracross but I have Lucario,Vespiquen is too slow.I considered Crobat but I dunno...I'm kinda sick of gen 1 and 2 pkmn,they seem so old.I might use Dwebble...but I also want a good Flying type...and advice on that?Swoobat,Unfezant and Mandibuzz suck[I have Black2].Skarmory is found kinda late from what I've seen,plus,it's a gen 2 and it meh...

I so wish we could get Gible earlier.How soon can I get Archen?I'm in Castelia City.

I didn't know Growlithe can now learn Outrage! I'll have to put some serious consideration on putting him on my team then.

Thinking, thinking....
Emboar (tradition of mine; beat the game with the fire starter first)
Ambipom (Can you say, "trade?")
Simisage (Second favorite Pokemon, does someone give them away again early I wonder?)
Electivire (5th favorite Pokemon)
Leavanny (Never used before)
Flygon (love him too)

Still considering: Azumarill, Vaporeon, Zoroark, Braviary, Sandslash, Drapion, and others :)

Hey thanks! This is quite good. Only don't forget it's story mode so the opponents are not insanely hard. But I like the set so I'll change some stuff when I get the team. Thanks again. What's your team? I'll help you out too.
You're welcome! Yeah, I know, but challenge mode looks like it could be tough and admittedly I go a little mad trying to get decent coverage. I probably won't actually finalize my teams moves until post-story anyway, so I don't really expect anyone else to do that either. My team:

[img128]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bwb/503.png[/img128]
Samurott
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Megahorn/Superpower/Grass Knot/Hidden Power
- Detect/Aqua Jet

Can't decide if I should go all out special or mix it up a bit. Considered a physical set as well but idk. I'll only use HP if the typing is good, like Electric or Ground or something.

[img128]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bwb/571.png[/img128]
Zoroark
- Night Daze
- Flamethrower
- Grass Knot
- U-Turn

Always wanted to use one. Was thinking about Sucker Punch or Focus Blast or something, too.

[img128]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bwb/59.png[/img128]
Arcanine
-Flare Blitz
-Outrage
-Extremespeed
-Wild Charge/Crunch

Can't decide on the last slot. I wanna go with Wild Charge but two recoil moves makes me want to cry. Might just grin and bear it though.

[img128]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bwb/407.png[/img128]
Roserade
- Toxic Spikes
- Giga Drain
- Venoshock
- Rest

Natural Cure ability. I've used Roserade to death but I figured I'd try something a bit different (and quite gimmicky, probably) this time.

[img128]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bwb/326.png[/img128]
Grumpig
- Psyshock
- Shadow Ball
- Power Gem
- Thunder Wave

I've always wanted to use a Grumpig but I never have. Have to admit that I'm a bit disappointed that you can't get one until post-Mistralton though, I'm actually contemplating dropping this for something else. Another Psychic type maybe? If that DW Ability Eevee, the one from that scientist person at Castelia, is available pre-e4, I might use Espeon.

[img128]http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bwb/330.png[/img128]
Flygon
- Earthquake
- Dragon Claw
- U-Turn
- Fly / Fire Punch

Fly for pre-e4, then afterwards i'll drop it for Fire Punch and just use something from the box for flying.

I think my team is pretty solid; the only common weaknesses are Bug and Ice type moves (hence the abundance of Fire-type moves). I'm not sure about using Grumpig though and I'm even reconsidering Samurott. Might make this the first game where I'm starterless. I'd use Serperior but I used it in Black and plan to trade it over so I can teach it all the neat move tutor stuff, don't really see much point in using the same Pokemon twice in the same generation. I haven't used Emboar before but I don't want to, either. Thank you, by the way.

Bulletproof

Self explanatory.
I think I'm going to repeat what I did in HeartGold and SoulSilver, I will just trade in all of the starters from white and use them as a fire, water, grass core. Galvantula and Kyurem will take a slot since I haven't used either of them. The last slot will be open to some from an earlier region, assuming I can find one.

Something I would like to know is where are the where and how a can obtain the evolution stones early on in the game. Also, where can I find Spiritomb?

I have some members for my planned B2W2 team, but I need some help:
Current Team:
Emboar
Carracosta
Magnezone
?????
?????

I want an eeveelution, and I need a flyer. I was considering Crobat or Flygon for a flyer. Are flygons too hard to train with a lot of experience? I'm looking for ice and psychic also, or maybe any types that would work? Suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks! :)

I think that Tirtouga is available post-game. You could use a Flygon. They evolve at lv 45 (give it the Lucky Egg too) but you could have Glaceon and Reuniclus/Gothitelle or Espeon and Walrein/Dewgong

Hey, I don't have a lot of time so I'll give advice later although I just skimmed it, it seems like a solid team.
