What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen 5 playthroughs? Any good memories?

    Simple question! What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen V playthroughs throughout the region of Unova? Any great memories of the Pokemon that you've trained throughout the journey? Any Pokemon that in particular stood out?

    Black is surprised that his team of Pokemon believes in his dreams of becoming the Pokemon Champion, recalling memories of what they've all been through together.

    In Black, my team was:

    • Emboar
    • Jellicent (male)
    • Unfezant (female)
    • Mienshao
    • Haxorus
    • Simisage
    And in Black 2, I continued in my Black trainer's footsteps with:

    • Emboar
    • Jellicent (male)
    • Unfezant (female)
    • Lucario
    • Magnezone
    • Leavanny
    I remember the day I first chose Tepig, who would grow into the Emboar I love so much. He easily blitzed through most of the Unova Gyms (with a few exceptions). I also remember catching my Lucario as a Riolu outside the Floccesy Ranch, and she had rather humble beginnings at Cheren's Gym, but she's now a solid member of my Black 2 team.

    For fun, I remember pitting my Jellicent against Marlon's Jellicent. It was an epic battle of Ominous Winds. :D

    Since Gen 5 is my favorite generation (BW2 being my favorite games of all time), I played it a lot and have a lot of great teams but I will only tell you about the 3 that stood out the most to me.

    My first ever Black Team:
    - Samurott
    - Excadrill
    - Leavanny
    - Darmanitan
    - Galvantula
    - Sawk

    I have a lot of great memories with this team as it introduced me to now my favorite generation. The MVP of this team was Excadrill and the biggest surprise for me was Leavanny because I didn't expect it to be as good as it was.

    My first Black 2 team:
    - Serperior
    - Lucario
    - Arcanine
    - Crustle
    - Jolteon
    - Lapras

    This team is my all time favorite team I ever had in any Pokemon game ever, I can't even begin to describe how much I enjoyed using this team. Every Pokemon on the team was amazing and made this playthrough so memorable for me. Because of this team Serperior became my favorite Unova starter, Crustle became my favorite Bug type and Arcanine made it on my Top 5 favorite Pokemon list. I also found my first ever shiny on this playthrough, a shiny Audino that showed up while I was training the newly evolved Joteon for the battle against Skyla. MVPs of the team were Lucario and Arcanine, the biggest surprise and my personal favorite on this playthrough was Crustle.

    The last team I want to talk about is my most recent White 2 team from the playthrough I did about a year ago:
    - Serperior
    - Shiny Arcanine
    - Swoobat
    - Scrafty
    - Jellicent (Male)
    - Mamoswine (Weezing before I caught Piloswine)

    This playthrough was super fun and even a little nostalgic as it reminded me of my first Black 2 playthrough. I wanted to use Pokemon I never used before and Serperior, but some crazy stuff happened and I ended up using Arcanine again... I was training in Virbank Complex for the battle against Roxie and when I went to the PC to heal my Pokemon Nurse Joy told me that my Pokemon had Pokerus. I couldn't believe it, I just found a PKRS in the wild (it is even more rare than finding a shiny). So after this happened I decided to test how lucky I can really get and I decided to try to get a shiny in Virbank Complex double grass. And the day after I got PKRS and after less than a 1000 encounters I found a shiny Growlithe. This was without a doubt my luckiest playthrough I ever did. The MVP was Scrafty and the biggest surprise was Swoobat, it really isn't as bad as people say.

    There are a few more interesting teams I had over the years and there are definitely more teams to come as I play Gen 5 more than any other generation. Even right now I am in the middle of the german Pokemon White playthrough, I have 4 Badges so far and the team of Dewott, Lilligant, Dwebble and Bouffalant (traded as an Egg from W2).

    Leavanny is a good Pokémon if you can get over its 4x weakness to Fire and Flying. I have one on B2.

    My first Generation V game was White, and my team was Samurott, Simisear, Krookodile, Sigilyph, Haxorus and Stoutland. I've never considered choosing any starter other than Oshawott, since Emboar is too slow and you can't get Contrary Snivy as your starter.During the climax of the storyline, I replaced Simisear with Zekrom, since the former constantly lagged behind (I evolved it too early, so it only got Flame Burst once I reached Mistralton City).
    In Black, I used Samurott, Krookodile, Darmanitan, Archeops, Haxorus and Galvantula.
    In White 2, my team was Samurott, Sigilyph, Krookodile, Cinccino (the one you're guaranteed to encounter in the Hidden Grotto on Route 5), Haxorus and Mienshao (who took forever to evolve).
    In Black 2, I raised Samurott, Sigilyph, Krookodile, Skill Link Cinccino, Haxorus and Galvantula.

    Ignition Couldn't care less even if I tried

    My Black team was:

    -Emboar: favorite Unovan starter. Hits hard and great movepool. Learns Scald of all things. Was my most reliable & my favorite moment was knocking Alder's Volcarona out with Heat Crash. Final moveset: Heat Crash, Brick Break, Wild Charge, and Rock Slide

    -Simisage: Yes, I used the infamous elemental Monkeys. I actually love them. I waited up until gym #6 to evolve it for Crunch. Wasn't the best but it got the job done. Final moveset: Seed Bomb, Brick Break, Rock Slide, and Crunch

    -Unfezant: yet another infamously hated Unovan Pokémon. It was a struggle at first due to lack of a reliable physical STAB but once I got Return+Fly, it was a menace. It took on Skyla's entire Gym by himself. Final moveset: Return, Fly, U turn, and Quick Attack.

    -Zebstrika: I like zebras and Electric Types are my 2nd favorite Type. It was mediocre since it lacked a good movepool but it was my fastest Pokémon. Final moveset: Wild Charge, Flame Charge, Trash, Thunder Wave.

    -Seismitoad: I had an unusual interest in Ash's underdeveloped Palpitoad so I decided to raise my own. Was the bulkiest of my squad. Why doesn't it get a physical Water STAB :( ? Final moveset: EQ, Surf, Sludge Bomb, and Hyper Voice.

    Krookodile: If you know me, Krookodile is my favorite Pokémon. The anime played a big role in that, but catching my own was amazing. I caught an Adamant Moxie one and used it to sweep through Elesa and Clay. Such an amazing powerhouse who never let me down. Final moveset: EQ, Crunch, Outrage, and Stone Edge

    Only time I use 2 of the same Types on the same team

    I don't remember my team very well... Serperior, Druddigon and Volcarona were on there but I don't remember the rest.

    I was living in Japan when BW came out so my fondest memories are more related to the environment and promotional stuff. Buying merch and playing on the train and stuff. In game, first arriving in Castelia. To this day Castelia is one of my favourite cities ever and the thing I think of when I think Unova.

    BW came out in the same month as my birthday. Was gifted Black and chose Snivy, which would be my favorite starter for this generation. Don’t remember what my team was at the time of getting it; do remember Sazandora and how much I loved the design and name, also cheating to get every Pokémon’s shiny.

    This was the first generation where I took the online competitive scene seriously, as well. I have a lot of memories associated with this gen (more so than any other); partly the reason why it’s my favorite region to play.

    I have very fond memories of my first playthrough of BW. Since Unova had no connections to other regions it was a great experience to discover all the new Pokemon. With that in mind I was constantly switching Pokemon in and out of my party; Experimenting to see which ones had the most potential. Additionally it was the first game where I actually cared about the Pokemon on my team, even imagining what kind of personalities and stories they had.

    In the end my team consisted of:
    - Samurott
    - Serperior
    - Emboar
    - Unfezant
    - Krookodile
    - Zoroark
    - Zekrom
    - Emolga
    - Leavanny
    - Gigalith
    - Excadrill
    - Scrafty
