Platinum team help: Last slot

Discussion in '4th Gen RMT' started by Swamp King, Nov 6, 2012.

    Here is my team so far:

    Torterra w/ Big Root
    Relaxed nature
    Stealth Rock
    Giga Drain
    Rock Slide

    Staraptor w/Scope Lens
    Jolly Nature
    Fly (because I need it)
    Close Combat

    Scizor w/Leftovers
    Adamant Nature
    Swords Dance (may replace with roost)
    Brick Break
    Bullet Punch

    Gyarados w/ Lum Berry
    Jolly nature
    Dragon Dance
    Stone Edge

    Lucario w/Wise Glasses (until I get a choice specs)
    Modest Nature
    Vacuum Wave
    Dragon Pulse
    Shadow Ball
    Aura Sphere

    My last slot I'm thinking either Flygon, Umbreon, Espeon, Gengar, Rotom..or whatever you guys recommend, lol.

    Also...the battle tower...right now would be Scizor Gyarados and Lucario, but I'd like to replace Scizor out with Flygon, or someone else to provide balance.

    thanks in advance for the help...just incase I am slow at getting back to this.

    Giga drain isn't as good 4th gen as 5th gen because it's only 60BP. It's fine on a bulky staller but not on a sweeper like torterra. Way safer to stay with seed bomb

    The rest is absoltely fine!
    My personal preference for lucario in this case would be choice scarf instead of specs and I would probably use ice punch > vacuum wave. You get 3 more types
    covered in super effective hits which is awesome! Again, this is what I would. Your set is great as it is.

    Out of the pokemon you mentioned for your last spot on the team, I would be looking at rotom (more particularily frost rotom!!!) or flygon
    What do you think??

    -focus blast

    Love gengar, he rocks the battle tower too.

    thanks for the help.

    The whole problem with gengar is limited wifi. The problem with rotom is no secret key. I can't even get trapinch in my game so ill have to hope Ican get someone to trade me for one.

    Hmmm...ice punch on lucario would allow me to hit more but would he have the physiccal powerto pull it off as he is modest nature with noatk evs?
