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

  1. Ignition

    Ignition Don’t be so hostile over a children’s franchise

    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

    Close Combat is a lifesaver. One of the many reasons why Staraptor is awesome.

    I used Torterra, Staraptor, Rapidash, Gyarados, Raichu and Lucario in Diamond. 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 Pokémon Diamond, I had a team which consisted of: Infernape, Luxray, Roserade, Gastrodon, Weavile and Drifblim.
    On Platinum: Empoleon, Leafeon, Togekiss, Glaceon, Mismagius and Garchomp.
    Lastly, in Heart Gold: Meganium, Poliwrath, Arcanine, Lickilicky, Mamoswine and Honchkrow.

    Good memories?
    How I couldn't wait to try a few of the newly introduced evolutions... How I literally lost my way into the Giratina's Distortion World in Platinum... And how I was truly happy to see the regions of Kanto and Johto with such pretty looks and colours on Heart Gold.

    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.
