I'm almost done with my Hoenn dex and I don't know which one to get. I would like something that would help me in the Battle Frontier. None of them may be the best choices, but it's for Johto nostalgia. I don't have Colo/XD sadly...

Typhlosion is the best special sweeper

Meganium is a tank

Feraligatr is a physical sweeper

wich one do you desire???

Tanks are boring so you can cross that out. But which one would you prefer? I want your personal preference and expertise.

I always lack physical sweeping in my teams. But I still picked Cyndaquil because I love special sweepers. But I alwasy lack physical sweeping. The only well trained physical sweepers I have are Absol and Heracross

2 physical sweepers are enough, right? Lol. Typhy has good sp atk. Fery has many good sp. moves, but it's sp. atk stat is poor.

In my opinion, yes

In BF i have

1 physical sweeper, 1 with baton pass, 1 special sweeper 1 with baton pass (espeon),

a baton passing tank (umbreon) last spot is a filler

Or, if he traded them to Box, he could have all three, but that'd be too much trouble. I think you shouldn't rely just on brute strength alone, you're gonna need a strategy with all that power. If you already saw your opponent's Pokemon, think of the best way to take care of them before you lose any of your Pokemon.

So are you saying Meganium for tanking and stalling?
Yeah, its attacking stats arent too good. It has a base attk. stat of 83 and attk of 82...

But its defenses 100 a piece. So it can take a couple hits.

The only attacking moves I would put on it are Razor leaf or Bodyslam...But like most tanks Meganium is horribly slow.

Only if he has a lot of HP. Teach it attacks that are both offensive and defensive. Can it learn a healing move?

Giga Drain and Synthesis

I still dont like Meganium much

Get cyndaquil. If you want a tank, Umbreon FTW

Ok, teach it that, Solar Beam, and Razor Leaf. It can learn those attacks, right?

Hmmm, alright replace Solar Beam with either Earthquake, Rock Smash, or Poisonpowder.

What starter did you chose for Hoenn?

I could easily breed leech seed and grasswhistle so would that make it good? I'm thinking about Meganium or Typhlosion. Physical water types don't appeal to me. I have a Swampert for Hoenn. I have an EV trained Houndoom for an alternate special sweeper and a Thunder-Dancing Ampharos that I usually use.

Listen: NONE OF THE JOHTO STARTERS WILL HELP YOU IN BF.

Thyphlosien: Good stats, horrid movepool.

Fraligatr: Good stats, not-so-great movepool

Meganium: Decent tank, but Curselax or something FTW.


If you want a good special sweeper, get Lati@s, or if you do not like Ubers, Starmie.

If you want a physcial sweeper, get Metagross

If you want a tank, Curselax, Blissey, or Weezing. (Umbreon is horrid ingame, great metagame).
