    Don't use HMs in the process of team rating.I wasn't too sure on a Dodrio set without the HP.That should do fine though.If you insist on fly then you can put it over Steel Wing...

    Definitely get ride of Strength in lieu of a better move; there really aren't that many boulders that need to be moved.

    I see no problem with [Kingdra]'s sets, though I'd use Earthquake over Shadow Ball on Snorlax as well as Surf over Confuse Ray or Sing on Lapras. And perhaps Rhydon or Heracross as your last Pokemon?

    Why even a buffing move? Heracross is best as a CBer...

    not always true, it can be effective as just a sweeper, with swords dnace.

    eq>shadow ball ingame as theres no levitating ghosts (gengar) apart from 2 that agatha has. It doesn't have much use.

    I can't breed yet!!! Or trade, so I can't Choice Band with Dodrio!

    Yeah, I'll use most of Kingdra's sets for post-Elite Four, when I can breed.

    So this is my team so far:

    Electabuzz@?
    Lonely Nature
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Brick Break/Cross Chop when I can breed
    ~ Thunder Wave/Calm Mind
    ~ Psychic/Ice Punch when I can breed

    Venusaur@Leftovers
    Careful
    ~ Razor Leaf (one attack isn't worth it and it can still recover nicely)
    ~ Leech Seed
    ~ Synthesis
    ~ Sludge Bomb

    Dodrio@?
    Adamant
    ~ Drill Peck
    ~ Toxic...
    ~ Return
    ~ Steel Wing (why the hate for this move? It covers Rock and Ice, and it's an extra sweeping move.)

    Lapras@?
    Modest
    ~ Sing? It's low accuracy...
    ~ Ice Beam
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Confuse Ray

    Snorlax@Leftovers
    Careful
    ~ Curse
    ~ Return
    ~ Rest
    ~ Earthquake/Shadow Ball

    Rhydon@?
    Adamant
    ~ Megahorn
    ~ Rock Blast/Slide
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Swords Dance

    -or-

    Mr. Mime (Need a legit Special Sweeper not named Alakazam)
    Modest
    ~ Substitute
    ~ Psychic
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Thunder Wave/Reflect/Barrier

    Might take out Electabuzz for Mr. Mime. What do you think?

    I don't think you get that many leftovers...

    On Lapras, you can use Surf instead of Sing to get past the game, once you get past the E4, you can change the move to back to Sing.

    Reno so adorable...

    another dodrio set then


    dodrio@lum berry
    adamant
    -drill peck
    -endure
    -flail
    -quick attack

    dodrio@leftovers
    adamant
    -rest
    -drill peck
    -return
    -quick attack
     
  16. Icosahedron

    Icosahedron レミオロメン♪

    ^Agility over Quick Attack on the EndFlail set.

    @Mii: Sassy please on Venusaur. Choice Band is best for Rhydon, but if you can't get it then it doesn't really matter what you use. Also, use this for Mr. Mime:

    Mr. Mime @ Leftovers/Brightpowder
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    Trait: Soundproof
    - Reflect/Encore
    - Calm Mind
    - Thunderbolt
    - Psychic

    Yeah, use him over Electabuzz, who may I mention can't learn Calm Mind....
     
  17. KingBattlus

    KingBattlus i don't lose

    electabuzz can't learn calm mind. everything else has been covered rather well though.

    To everyone who posted, Mii can't breed yet.

    (brick break)
     
  20. Reno

    Reno so adorable...

    snorlax@leftovers
    adamant/careful
    -earthquake
    -return

    -curse


    probably the best set snorlax can have
