It does doesn't it? I've never used it personally, even though I prefer the SD + KS sets due to their defensive and offensive stance, compared to the wallbreaking power of a simple Mixed set.
@ Greg, I think you could make any team unique, with Delphox or not (that's the Fire starter). Did you want a planned team? You're restarting Y. Cool, I want to restart X soon (need to catch Xerneas first). I'll probably go without a starter (don't like Chesnaught much, don't feel like using Delphox and I've used Greninja in Y). As for you, you need a Flying type, or a Pokémon with Fly. Talonflame/Charizard is a no- both have a Fire typing, which whilst having Pokémon with 2 of the same types is OK, Fire is a type you don't need 2 of. Maybe Salamence? You catch Bagon relatively early (on Route 7/8 I think, before Ambrette Town), and an early Dragon is always cool. I'd then catch a Honedge (found on Route 6, before Parfum Palace), to somewhat balance your weaknesses (except Ghost/Dark). 1 Special Attacker (Delphox), 1 Physical Attacker (Aegislash) and a mixed attacker (Salamence, although this could be Physical). Therefore another Special Attacker with Ghost/Dark resists would be good. A Dark type. Lets see... Krookodile, Absol, Umbreon and Pangoro/Scrafty are good choices. None are Special, but that's not a big issue.
~ Absol / Krookodile / Pangoro / Scrafty / Umbreon
You need Surf (so a Water type) and with that you may as well nab a Grass type. Vaporeon is a decent Special Water type, Blastoise too. Lapras is cool as well. As for Grass types... Gogoat, Venusaur, Victreebel, Roserade, Abomasnow and Amoonguss are all nice choices. I like the idea of Blastoise + Abomasnow, or Vaporeon + Venusaur. Lapras + Amoonguss are cool if you don't want to use starters from Kanto.
~ Umbreon / Absol / Krookodile / Pangoro / Scrafty
~ Vaporeon / Blastoise / Lapras
~ Gogoat / Venusaur / Victreebel / Roserade / Abomasnow / Amoonguss
I've tried to pick Pokémon from a range of areas, so you don't have to train a whole team by the second badge. Of course, you don't have to use this at all, and just go for something completely different. Up to you!
I should mention I'm back. My internet unblocked me, and here I am in my awesome glory. I have obviously dropped out of the Combatants Cup II, and so I have decided to make a single team, ladder it and then maybe make an RMT of it. My first tier choice is Ubers. I like the Ubers tier a lot, and I've had some success in the tier.
As for my other games, I've taken a brief break from Oblivion after getting pissed off at the Oblivion Gates. I've gone back to Skyrim, tested some stuff out and have now finally
wanted to play a Dragonborn. Why finally? Because I wanted to be motivated to being a good guy. Now I'll just play as I want, use whatever skills I like and so forth. Going to be a Dunmer.
Race: Dunmer / Dark Elf Vampire
Skills: One Handed / Destruction / Conjuration / Restoration / Light Armor or Alteration (perhaps both) / Smithing / Sneak
Back to my Ubers team. Xerneas and Yveltal are the 2 new Pokémon to appear in the tier, and both are deadly. Therefore, it stands to reason you may as well build a team around one. For me, that will be around Yveltal, the Destruction Pokémon. I prefer Y to X for one, I like demon birds compared to fairy deer's and the Destruction Pokémon sounds exciting. So yeah.
Typing: Dark / Flying
Weaknesses: Electric, Ice, Rock, Fairy
Resistances/Immunities: Grass, Ghost, Dark, Psychic, Ground
Checks/Counters: Arceus-Fairy, Xerneas (can set up on choiced Dark moves), pink blobs (for special attacking sets), Zekrom (needs to be Scarfed), Ho-Oh (if SR isn't up), Terrakion and Tyranitar (no Focus Blast) can all give Yveltal a hard time. Stealth Rock is also a pain, but its not crippling to Yveltal as it is to some other Pokemon.
I'm a fan of a bulky set, with Oblivion Wing + Life Orb, Sucker Punch for all that Life Orb, Dark Aura boosted Priority. All dat goodness. Focus Blast + U- Turn rounds out coverage, and gives me some momentum should I require it.
Black Death (Yveltal) @ Life Orb
EVs: Unknown, could use some help here
~ Sucker Punch
~ Oblivion Wing
~ U- Turn
~ Focus Blast
Why the Hasty Nature? Genesect receives a +1 Attack boost due to Yveltal's Defense being lower. U- Turn and Iron Head don't 2HKO I don't think with the standard Scarf set. Depending on my EVs.
