Pokémon Sword & Shield Team Discussion Thread

Discussion in 'Pokémon Sword & Shield Discussion' started by PrinceOfFacade, Jun 5, 2019.

  1. 1rkhachatryan

    1rkhachatryan Call me Robert guys

    This is probably the first game in the series when I don't have a ground type pokemon on my team due to the lack of options and liking of the options available. Although I do have Coalossal with a ground move so I'm not totally unguarded with the type.
     
  2. Ignition

    Ignition Wake me up when get to Sinnoh

    My team at the 6th gym's town:
    Cinderace
    Corviknight
    Drednaw
    Toxtricity
    Grimmsnarl
    Dreepy

    All level 40. I'd type out movesets but I'm tired lol
     
  3. Erron Black

    Erron Black The Outlaw

    With my Shield completed this was my final team:

    -Inteleon (Espio)
    -Boltund (Breaker)
    -Grimmsnarl (Azog)
    -Appletun (Shizuka)
    -Copperajah (Verdigris)
    -Frosmoth (Alaska)

    I've changed my mind on my Sword playthrough, mainly because I have been using a G-Max Corviknight pretty religiously in the post-game of Shield, so it would feel a bit repetitive using another in Sword, so this is my planned team there now--

    -Cinderace
    -Alcreamie
    -Darmanitan
    -Dragapult
    -Obstagoon
    -Toxtricity

    Will probably do a 'mock' SBQ with it. By that, I mean I'll be breeding Dreepy, Darumaka, and Scorbunny on my Shield because well, shiny lock, and those encounter rates for Dreepy + Darumaka are... yikes...

    My other two party members will probably be Drednaw and Runerigus, but I'm not sure yet.
     
  4. Tsukuyomi56

    Tsukuyomi56 Gesshin Powered

    Current team as of the first visit to Motostoke:

    Sobble (Espio)
    Wooloo (Bellwether)
    Rookidee (Deimos)
    Yamper (Raijin)
    Dottler
    Gigantamax Meowth

    Meowth will be replaced by Sizzlipede once I catch one on Route 3. Shame Sandaconda doesn't learn Earthquake naturally as I would like to use one, Excadrill or Flygon will be my Ground-type on the team. Only one I am currently debating is my Electric-type, currently have it rounded down to trying out the Toxel line or deferring to the Galvantula line.
     
  5. British Soul

    British Soul Top Hat Regulator

    When I looked into its moveset, I was confuzzled that it doesn't get EQ naturally, but hey neither did Sandslash for instance until BW2.

    I've just beat the seventh gym, and the team I have right now is

    Intellion
    Corviknight
    Coalossal
    Sirfetch'd
    Toxtricity
    Grimmsnarl

    It's looking like this will be my finalised team as well.

    Made a commemorative image for my team now they are all fully evolved.

    This makes me sour that we don't have a national dex so I could do the same for all my previous regional teams. Oh well...

    Out of curiosity, what would you all say is the canon team for either Victor or Gloria?

    Given how much emphasis the game puts in having a rotating team (Hop talks about it all the time, NPCs mention it as well), probably the idea is that they would have their starter and then a bunch of rotating names.

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    If were going off by the manga, "Victor" or Soudo's team appears to be themed around tools and items, him having a talent for making stuff like Grookey's stick or Sirfetchd's Large Leek. As of now he has a Sirfetch'd. "Gloria" or Tate's team appears to be themed around Dynamaxing, the girl being an expert in how Dynamax works, with some thinking she will have a team full of Gigantamax Pokemon.

    I got me a music themed team for my sword playthrough but besides my starter, i cant decide which should be my main team and which should be on the rotation, each representing a music genre

    Rillaboom (Tribal)
    Toxictricty (Punk)
    Obstagoon (Classic Rock)
    Coalossal (Hard Rock)
    Cooperjah (heavy metal)
    Orbeetle (Vaporware)
    Corviknight (Opera)
    Grimmsnarl (Goth)
    Alcremie (Pop)
    Drednaw (Country)

    lol. I remember this one time I sent out Rillaboom against Obstagoon in the Dark-Type gym. With the arena it was taking place in, it look like a music stand-off, drums vs. guitar.

    My team as of getting the Grass Badge and the Toxel from the Daycare at Route 5:

    Drizzile (Espio)
    Corvisquire (Deimos)
    Sizzlipede (Laegjarm)
    Eldegoss (Gaia)
    Drilbur (Rufus)
    Toxel (no nickname yet, probably Nikola)

    Eldegoss is pretty much a place holder until I get to the area where Impidimp is found. Only one I am not too sure about is Drilbur, not sure if stacking Fire weaknesses (once Corvisquire and Drilbur gain their Steel-types) is more problematic than Flygon's (my second choice) weakness to Ice, Dragon and Fairy.

    I've just finished the main story and this is my final team:
    1. Cinderace
    2. Boltund
    3. Toxtricity
    4. Polteageist
    5. Appletun
    6. Hatterene/ Mr. Rime

    It's not exactly what I planned but I like it. I wanted to use a Reuniclus and still havent found one though.

    I guess today is the best day to beat Leon to pieces :p

    Both of you have amazing teams. Definitely want to try most of the Pokémon on them on later runs
