    I would like to start by stating that this is my 'In-Game' battle team.

    I used to have Pokemon Gold and had assembled a great team but unfortunately lost the game and the gameboy in grade 7. I decided to buy silver at a pawn shop for $5 and get her going again. Anyways, I haven't been playing it for too long but I am about to face the Elite Four for the first time on my new game, here's what my team looks like. I'll include the Pokemon, it's level and its attacks.

    1: Gengar lvl. 42
    -Dream Eater
    -Shadow Ball

    2: Golem lvl. 40
    -Rock Throw

    3: Dragonair lvl. 42

    4: Scyther lvl. 40
    -Fury Cutter
    -Wing Attack

    5: Typhlosion lvl. 42
    -Flame Wheel
    -Fire Punch
    -Iron Tail

    I know that is only 5 Pokemon, but that is the team I have battled with the whole game. I have known from the start that there would be a Larvitar/Pupitar/Tyranitar filling in that sixth spot and I refuse to waste any EXP. on a Pokemon that wont be in my line-up forever.

    So what do you guys think so far?

    How did you find your battles were? Did you get through it alright?

    Im guessing Ampharos and Typhlosion did wonders against will. Typhlosionmust have taken care of Koga pretty well too along with Lugia.
    And Gyarados and Pidgeotto and Lugia for Koga and a bit of the whole team for Karen.
    You must have had a bit of difficulty taking out Lance's 3 Dragonites though, eh?

    All my changes/comments are in bold above.You seem to have a pretty good team here for the Elite Four.As for the Tyranitar deal,I think you should train one.IMO,they are well worth the time to train.A Tyranitar with Earthquake,Rock Slide,Crunch,Thunderbolt can take out many things.Its up to you if you want to use him though.

    Yeah, most of what you have in bold is what I was hoping to do as my Pokemon level up and when I am able to get more TM's. Although, I never thought of giving Gengar Ice Punch. Seeing as I can get it relatively cheap, I should probably do that.

    As for Tyranitar, I will definitely be putting one into my line-up when I can get into Mount Silver. It has been my favorite Pokemon since the 2nd generation came out and was my strongest Pokemon on my old, good file. I dont know how I found the time, but I was able to get it up to lvl. 100 before I lost my game. I had also done so with Typhlosion and a Pikachu.

    Ice Punch for Gengar is always nice.Ice Punch would work well against Lance's Dragonite's.

    Good.Tyranitar will make a great addition to your team.It takes some patience to level him up,but is well worth it IMO.He learns a lot of great moves and makes a good physical wall that can also attack well.If you really can't get Thunderbolt to cover water attack,then Fire Blast will work to cover grass types.

    Ah, I'm back now. Ill be putting up-dates on all my Pokemon's levels soon, but I just thought I should put out there that I have dropped Golem and begun training a Pikachu that I plan to eventually Evolve into a Raichu. I noticed a glaring hole and weakness in my team. I had no electric type pokemon, or even a Pokemon with an electric type move and I actually had 1 of my pokemon faint battling against Misty.

    The loss of Golem isnt too bad as I will be training a Larvitar as soon as I get to Mt. Silver, and Raichu was always one of my favorite Pokemon.

    What do you all think?
