Rate my team (Please?) and need a sixth member.


Spicy Tuna!
I am putting a new team together, trying the styles. Looking which one I like to use. I just can never figure out what items to give my pokémon. I really suck at that... End up with things like mystic water, miracle seeds and such .-. Also, I think their moves reallllly suck xP Please help me ~ I'm desperated Dx

Ability : Overgrow
Nature : Jolly 4 Hp/ 252 Speed / 252 Attack

- Rockslide
- Slam (Still thinking to replace this with sword dance. Should I?)
- Earthquake
- Leaf Blade

Ability : Pressure
Nature : Quiet 252 Hp/ 255 Special attack / 3 def

- Hypnosis
- Dream eater
- Shadow ball
- Pain split

Ability : Marvel scale
Nature : Calm 252 SpA/ 252 SpDef/ 4 Hp

- Toxic
- Surf
- Ice beam
- Recover (back up for toxic)

@Life Orb
Ability :
Nature : Jolly 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4Hp

- Giga impact
- Dragon rush/claw
- Earthquake
- Stone edge

Ability : Intimidate
Nature : Jolly 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 def

- Extremespeed
- Flareblitz
- Morning Sun
- And I was thinking Sunny day and give it a heat rock. Not sure though :c

Also I have no idea what my sixth party member should be. I was thinking about getting a ice type, but seeing that milotic is in my team I don't really need one do I? So my nezt choice was flying type, so I was thinking about using a skarmory. Is that actually a good idea? I was also thinking about adding a zangoose <.< ~

Help would be much appreciated :3

Is this 4th Gen or 5th Gen? Spiritomb doesn't exist yet.

Sceptile: Swords Dance over Slam

Spiritomb @ Leftovers :: Calm
252 HP, 252 Spdef, 4 Def

~Will'o Wisp
~Dark Pulse
~Shadow Sneak/Sucker Punch


Spiritomb @ Wiseglasses :: Modest
252 HP, 252 SpAtt, 4 Spdef

~Sleep Talk
~Calm Mind/Shadow Ball
~Dark Pulse

Milotic: I have that exact same set and it does wonders (for gen III atleast; Gen IV has the addition of physical grass/electric attacks which isn't nice for Milotic)
252 HP, 128 SpAtt, 128 Def

Garchomp: Jolly is pretty good too; Fire Fang over Giga Impact.

Arcanine: Jolly is good here too; Final move, give it Toxic to kill Physical walls, or Iron Head or Thunder Fang.

You can get Alakazam for final, or get a tank like Dusclops or Porygon2 (with eviolite, else Dusknoir for Gen IV) if you decide not to make Spiritomb your tank (I wouldn't; lack of reliable recovery). Glaceon has good defense for a Special Attacker, while Gallade has good Sp.Def. for a Physical attacker.


Spicy Tuna!
Thanks :)! it's 4th gen, but planning to transfer them to 5th gen.

I actually tries to breed a modest spiritomb, but after breesing around 100 eggs I gave up, they take too long to hatch so I lost my patient Dx. Quiet was my second choice.

Again thanks so much for answering >w<!!

If you can catch a Modest Ditto, then give it an Everstone and it should pass down nature 50% of the time to child.


Spicy Tuna!
Oh! I will try to do that, thanks again :3!


Cobalion. Yeah.
Alright, so this is my favorite :3
It seems you have no big staller. Might I recommend Hippowdon? I have one and it does WONDERS. Put it at the front.
Hippowdon @ Rocky Helmet
Nature: Careful (+Sp. Def. -Sp. Atk.)
Ability: Sand Stream
252 HP/130 Defense/128 Sp. D.
Stealth Rock
Slack off
(It's not an attack) Yawn
Basically, it goes really well with a Tyranitar in Double battles:
@Choice Band
Nature: Adamant (+atk -Sp. Atk.)
252 Atk./252 HP/6 Def.
Stone edge
Sure, the Choice Band only allows one move right? But that's the point. You only need pursuit, maybe on some occasions you would use Earthquake. The first time I used this, I was pretty skeptical, but it actually worked out! Hippowdon chases them off with Yawn! Choice Band does the rest, increasing physical damage of the attacks by a huge 50%.
Decision: Should it go to sleep and take long-term damage or take serious damage from pursuit in one turn?
If you want Tyranitar in single battles, replace Band with Scarf.

Yeah I almost always have a strict wall on my team. Porygon2 with eviolite is the best, with recover and toxic or thunder wave.


Spicy Tuna!
I wanted my sixth member be gallade :3. My lil bro didn't want me to touch his porygon2.... which nature suirs gallade best?


Spicy Tuna!
Would Jolly also be good?


Shiny Feebas
Sure; if it's in-game then 80 base Speed isn't bad for a physical sweeper. You could go high speed instead and Swords Dance setup. It's better than low speed and high attack with agility.


Spicy Tuna!
I see o.o

are these stats then ok? 252 Atk/ 252 spd/ and I was thinking to put last ones in hp... Or should it better be SpD?
I thaught it
Pscho cut
Leaf blade
Close combat
Night slash


Shiny Feebas
Put the last one into HP.. Swords Dance over Leaf Blade or Night Slash..... I had to make this difficult decision back with my Gallade too haha

Leaf Blade might fight your team more, but for competitive battling then go with Night Slash. Night Slash makes quick work of Sp. Attackers like Alakazam, Gardevoir, Latios, etc. since they will be going against you with special attacks.


Spicy Tuna!
I see .o. Thanks again :D!
