Team Building Help Thread

    Manectrifier AKA Treecko

    I suggest you change some moves because some moves you use right now are not very useful. Also consider changing some pokemon as a whole, seeing as you lack some important type resists such as water, fire and flying. I'd get rid of Shuckle and add in a water-type (Empoleon, Suicune, Starmie, Swampert, Vaporeon are all good options). As for move changes:

    Blissey: toxic>psychic and seismic toss>ice beam
    Forretress: gyro ball>waterfall
    Shuckle: pretty sure it can't learn trick room, as I said it is best to replace shuckle as a whole.
    Alakazam: focus blast>recover
    Ninjask: substitute>earthquake and x-scissor>bug buzz
    Spiritomb: Wonder Guard is (unfortunately lol) not a legal ability on spiritomb. Also, sucker punch>ice beam.

    The team can be decent once these changes have been made. Hope this helped.

    Hi guys ,

    Just joined the forums now , I got myself soulsilver on my B'day (4 days back) . So i've been doing my reading and made a team for now , but I think It would be best if I could get some assistance from experienced guys . I am not into competitive matches , just the elite 4 and finishing the game . Below is the planned team (got all of them except gengar which is a haunter now and still got to catch larvitar )

    1. Typhlosion
    Moves :
    Flamethrower (STAB)
    Eruption (STAB and super powerful)
    Thunderpunch
    Dig/Shadowclaw/Earthquake

    2. Scizor (Tichnician + Arogant nature)
    Iron Head
    Night Slash
    Bug Bite
    Wing Attack /Sword Dance
    I think wing attack would be good as it is useful in the Elite 4 + Technician effect . so 60*1.5

    3. Tyranitar
    Earthquake
    Crunch
    Thunder Fang
    Fire Fang

    Earthqauke cause its awesome , crunch for all the ghost/psychics . Thunder Fang for the water and Fire fang for grass ,bug and steel(also helps with ice) .
    Looks like almost all the weaknesses are covered . (If not all , atleast most)

    4. Lapras
    Ice Beam
    Surf
    Hydro Pump

    Decided only on 3 , what should be the 4th ?

    5. Gengar
    Shadow Ball
    Psychic
    Brick Break (for against Dark Pokemon)
    Destiny Bond (For desperate measures )

    6. Ampharos
    Thunder Bolt
    Signal Beam
    Power Gem
    Thunder

    Well , Thats about it . Do share your views guys !

    Happy Playing ,
    Fudge

    Hello my friends.. I need a little help to make up my team.. I have 7 pokemons which are better than others I have.. I will write their names and moves and will expect you to decide which one should I have and moves.. Actually I'm confused between Snorlax, Arcanine and Dragonite .I have ;

    Zapdos
    -Thunderbolt
    -Steel Wings
    -Light Screen
    -Drill Peck

    Golem
    -Tackle
    -Rock Throw
    -Earthquake
    -Explosion

    Starmie
    -Psychic
    -Minimize
    -Recover
    -hydro Pump

    Gengar
    -Hypnosis
    -Dream Eater
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Shadow Ball

    Dragonite
    -Thunder Wave
    -Agility
    -Outrage
    -Fire Blast

    Snorlax (Irritable nature Phy Def (-) )
    -Double Edge
    -Fire Punch
    -Ice Punch
    -Thunder Punch

    Arcanine
    -Fire Blast
    -Solar Beam
    -Extreme Speed
    -Iron Tail

    These are moves and the best pokemons I have. Snorlax is good and has moves I can hit almost every type. But it dies when gets Phy atck.
    But Arcanine, I cant benefit well it. I dont know its stats are amazing..
    And Dragonite.. I really want to use it..
    I'm planning to add Ice Beam to Starmie.. But I dont know which should I replace. Minimize and Recover are good strategy but dont work every time. And I need Ice move to hit Dragonite foes.. I have Blizzard TM but its accuracy is low.
    I'm waiting you guys, what should I do?

    What should I add to this team? (only one Pokemon as of now.)

    Lapras
    Ability:Shell Armor
    Item:Leftovers
    Moves:
    Mist
    Confuse Ray
    Body Slam
    Perish Song
    EVs:???
    I'm planning to use it to wreck high-HP havoc with Confuse Ray and Body Slam causing Paralyze, and when HP is low, use Perish song and switch out/let it faint. Mist is just a cover-up move.

    I am also new to competitive and have never participated. (Though I did do some research.)
