Hi everyone, I need a bit of help for my platinum game(in game). I am able to breed and i'm starting with a bred chimchar with thunderpunch along with a murkrow knowing drill peck. any help for movesets and rest of team i'll be grateful for!
Flare Blitz and Close Combat are great moves for a physical infernape. Overheat and Focus Blast for a speacial attacker. As for murkrow, Nasty Plot when he evolves is exellent if you want a special attacker, but with drill peck, you are probably going for a physical attacker. Pursuit and payback are its best phsical dark moves, and I think it can learn Swords Dance. Roost makes a good healing move, but of course make him vunerable to spikes, toxic spikes, and ground moves.
Im not sure if the team will work out, but i have some suggestions:
-Fire Punch/Flare Blitz
-Brick Break/Close Combat
-Vacuum Wave/Stone Edge/Thunder Punch
I like a physical-sweeping Infernape, but a special-sweeper works good too. Fie Punch and Flare Blitz for STAB. Brick Break and Close Combat for more STAB. Swords Dance for a good boost. Vacuum Wave for priority and STAB. Stone Edge for coverage. Thunder Punch for reliable coverage.
-Calm Mind/Nasty Plot
A special-weeping Infernape. Flamethrower and Heat Wave for STAB. Focus Blast for more STAB. Calm Mind for boosts (beware of physical-sweeprs!). Nasty Plot for a crazy boost. Will-o-Wisp to ruin physical-sweepers.
-Thunder Wave/Confuse Ray
Even though Honchkrow is better off as a physical-sweeper, it doesnt really have the right move for an Attack boost. So, Nasty Plot for boost. Dark Pulse for STAB. Heat Wave for Steel coverage. Thunder Wave and Confuse Ray for stalls to sweep and pull off some Nasty Plots.
Ability: Sand Veil
-Stone Edge/Fire Fang/Substitute
The almighty Garchomp set. Earthquake for STAB. Dragon Claw and Outrage for STAB. Stone Edge and Fire Fang for coverage. Substitute to pull off some Swords Dancing boosts.
Ability: Leaf Guard
This set was pulled from Serebii so its self explanatory.
Ability: Swift Swim
-Aqua Jet/Bulk Up
Waterfall and Aqua Tail for STAB. Ice Punch for coverage. Brick Break to hurt Steels. Aqua Jet for STAB and priority. Bulk Up for boosts.
Ability: Storm Drain
To tell you the truth, I dont really like Gastrodon. I just dont know what to use it for. So, my attempt for a Special-sweeper. Earth Power and Surf for STAB. Ice Beam for coverage. Recover and Pain Split to recover.
Ability: Thick Fat
I have this Snorlax and I got from Serebii so its another good, self explanatory set.
Abilty: Motor Drive
Another set from Serebii which is great and common.
Impressive selection so far. I have a few more ideas to add
Spark and thunder fang for STAB, thunder wave or swagger to cripple the opponent. Finally, iron tail, crunch, and return to cover whatever else you might come up against.
Stone Egde/ Rock wrecker
Swords dance/rock polish
Stone egde, rock wrecker, earthquake, and earth power for STAB. Megahorn has some amazing power, and will KO any grass, dark, and psychic types. For power ups, it has a boost in speed or attack. Thunderbolt gets a meition here because it takes care of water types.
8. No "gimme a team" threads
No one really feels like building you a whole team. If you need help choosing members, have at least 3 Pokemon on your team with some form of a moveset that you know you`re going to use.
