What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen 4 playthroughs? Any good memories?

I'm replaying Platinum right now and my current team is

Infernape
Floatzel
Luxray
Staraptor
Roserade
Garchomp

I'm debating on switching Staraptor for Giratina. I normally don't use legendaries, but I might make an exception here since I'm currently grinding in preparation for the league. I haven't forgotten how tough Cynthia is.
That was my exact same team when I first played Platinum or any Pokémon game in general so good taste (even if it’s not that unique).

From experience, Staraptor does good for both offense and defense (Intimidate) and it helped me with Cynthia just as much as my Infernape

I always planned to replace Gyarados with either Floatzel or Gastrodon but never got around to it.
I once used an East Sea Tritodon (Gastrodon) in Pearl version, and I remember wondering if I should switch it with Gyarados since I thought it was stronger and faster. Ultimately however, I decided to use Floazel instead since I didn't like Gyarados's Intimidate Ability always activating whenever it gets sent out to battle.

I never used Gyrados in pearl because I try to only use new Pokémon.

I beat Pokemon Diamond and my team was Empoleon, Luxray, Roserade, Rampardos, Rapidash and Weavile.

Luxray was my favorite Pokemon in this play through, he was the last Pokemon i used during the champions battle and managed to defeat Cynthia's Milotic who was the last Pokemon she used.

In Pokemon HeartGold my team was Typhlosion, Ampharos, Crobat, Heracross, Espeon and Cloyster.

I posted about my Sinnoh team back in January but I forgot to share my Johto remakes team since that is also a part of Gen 4 so I guess I'll do it now.

I played Heart Gold and my team was:
- Feraligatr
- Fearow
- Gengar
- Heracross
- Arcanine
- Electrode

Now looking back at it this team was a very generic Johto team with just a bunch of very strong Pokemon with the only kinda unique choice being Electrode and thats why most of my memories from this playthrough are about this electric Pokeball.

I remeber that Electrode was very fun to use because of its speed and Charge Beam+Thunder combo but it was also useful for supporting the team by setting up Light Screens. Thunder would miss a lot but when it did hit it would very often leave the enemy Pokemon paralyzed so that kinda made it worth dealing with the misses. Also I remember that Electrode was probably my most useful Pokemon in the battle against Red because of its speed, Thunder paralysis and Light Screen support. Even though Electrode was the most memorable it was far from the strongest Pokemon in that playthrough as I remember sweeping through most trainers with Feraligatr, Gengar, Heracross and Arcanine. These four were very OP but Fearow and Electrode were strong too and they still had their moments where they were actually the ones that saved me from losing a battle despite being the two weakest Pokemon on the team.

In Platinum, I've taken a long time thinking about my team. I ended up with Empoleon, Porygon-Z, Bronzong, Gabite (one level from evolving at the moment), Togekiss, and a Riolu I traded over because the one I hatched was calm nature.

Arceus finally blessed me with a Togepi that had both a good nature and serene grace. It held my exp. share until the level 40s because it just didn't have any good attacking moves.

Bronzong is also pretty hard to level. Its offensive stats are so low... I have mine holding a Zoom Lens because of how Hypnosis was nerfed in Platinum.

I always had the same basic team of Infernape,Staraptor,Floatzel,Luxray,Lucario,and Garchomp.I think most people used similar teams.Sometiems I would swap Infernaoe for Torterra and Luxray for Weavile though.

Platinum, first time. It was my first Pokémon game, so of course I pretty much relied on my starter. I can't remember one member. The Farfetch'd was a post-game catch but I kept it on my team ever since because it's a shiny.
  • Infernape
  • Probopass
  • Giratina
  • Gardevoir
  • Weavile
  • Shiny Farfetch'd
Platinum, second time. This was earlier this year. One slot was constantly changing.
  • Empoleon
  • Giratina
  • Bibarel
  • Noctowl
  • Steelix, replaced with Rapidash
  • Can't remember the 6th, this is what constantly changed around. Actually, I think Steelix ended up being the last member when I entered the Hall of Fame.
SoulSilver, second time. I don't know what I used the first time.
  • Typhlosion
  • Lugia
  • Machoke
  • Shiny Gyarados
  • Golbat
  • Swinub, replaced with Ditto
