    Zhanton le quant-à-soi

    Ok so I'm sort of rusty with rating and stuff so forgive me for poor choices haha. This will probably be the team I'll be using in my playthrough of White 2, though I am a really indecisive person so chances are my team will change by the time the games are released. Also, just as a note I'm not going to be breeding for egg moves or Hidden Power. I'm probably not going to go out looking for certain natures either but I listed the optimal ones anyway just for fun.

    The Team

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Modest | Overgrow
    ~ Leech Seed
    ~ Giga Drain
    ~ Dragon Pulse
    ~ Substitute

    I love Leech Seed + Giga Drain. Serperior's pretty bulky and can pull off the strategy well. Dragon Pulse for some nice coverage, and Substitute for SubSeeding, woohoo.

    Adamant | Huge Power
    ~ Waterfall
    ~ Ice Punch
    ~ Brick Break
    ~ Surf / Return

    Unfortunately, Aqua Jet is an egg move so I'll be using Waterfall as my STAB move. Ice Punch + Brick Break for coverage. I chose Brick Break over Superpower as I'm not a fan of Superpower's side-effect of lowering Attack and Defence. Last move will either be Surf (not to be used in-battle, but just for travelling purposes) or Return for neutral coverage.

    Rash | Flash Fire
    ~ Work Up
    ~ Flamethrower
    ~ Shadow Ball
    ~ Superpower

    Don't worry, I haven't lost my mind. People always hate on Flareon for having a great Attack stat but no decent physical STAB moves; what they fail to notice is Flareon's respectable base 95 Special Attack stat. Work Up to boost both offences. Flamethrower is stronger than Fire Fang (I did some damage calcs to confirm this using Smogon but feel free to double check haha). Shadow Ball + Superpower for nice neutral coverage, and I'm not concerned about Superpower's -Atk side-effect since Superpower is my only physical move.

    Brave | Sticky Hold
    ~ Poison Jab
    ~ Payback
    ~ Ice Punch
    ~ Thunder Punch

    tbh I'm not too sure on Muk's moveset. Poison Jab for STAB. Muk is slow anyway, so Payback to hit Psychic-types and Ice Punch for Ground-types. Thunder Punch for BoltBeam coverage.

    Adamant | Levitate
    ~ Dragon Claw
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Fire Punch
    ~ Fly

    Standard Flygon. Dragon Claw + Earthquake + Fire Punch hits everything for at least neutral I believe. Fly for travelling purposes.

    Modest | Synchronise
    ~ Psyshock
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Shadow Ball
    ~ Calm Mind

    I love this little guy! Psyshock for STAB, Thunderbolt and Shadow Ball for coverage and Calm Mind for boosting. Relatively simple and self-explanatory.

    That's about it! Thanks for reading and rating! All changes will be listed in bold.

    I'd go with Fire Punch > Payback on Muk to hit Steel types. ThunderPunch in the last slot for boltbeam.

    Adamant nature on Azumarill. You're not outspeeding much with just 50 Spd anyway.

    On Flareon I'd say Fire Fang > Flamethrower for obv. reasons.

    Serperior would be good purely Special.

    • Serperior @Leftovers
    • Modest
    • Overgrow
    ~ Giga Drain
    ~ Leech Seed
    ~ Dragon Pulse
    ~ Substitute

    SubSeeding. Just a suggestion though. Either that or probably a Physical one.

    I rather a physical Serperior with Coil / Aqua Tail / Leaf Blade / Outrage personally.

    Really I would stick with Payback on Muk. You have Flygon to deal with Steel Types. But change to Brave.

    You're 3 / 6 BoltBeam weak but whatever.

    Zhanton le quant-à-soi

    Ehhhhh tbh I'm more of a fan of Payback. If I see a Steel-type I'll probably just switch tbh. :p And yep, I'll go with Thunder Punch.


    What obvious reasons? :s Flamethrower is actually more powerful on Flareon (only barely but still) and has a higher accuracy, and isn't negatively affected by Superpower's Attack drop. Please let me know what these 'obvious' reasons for using Fire Fang are!

    Ok, I'll go with Modest > Rash and Substitute > Aqua Tail. :)

    Ehhh tbh I prefer the set I have, partially because I love the Leech Seed + Giga Drain combination as it's done wonders for me on Lilligant and Jumpluff in the past, and also because I need some more special support rather than physical.

    Not worried about my BoltBeam weakness tbh. But ok I'll go with Brave.

    First post updated~ Thanks.
