    Just one of'em? Oh, why? Two of them is superb pokés and they gonna do their jobs extremely well.

    Togekiss@Leftovers/Life Orb
    Modest Nature
    EV's: 252 SpAtk/182 HP//76 Speed (or 252 Speed, if he's not using Leftovers)
    ~Aure Sphere
    ~Shadow Ball
    ~Roost/Air Cutter
    ~Nasty Plot
    Offensive Togekiss and standard (most people prefer to HAX through the game with Togekiss, but I'm not of them).
    This Set rely on Boosting Togekiss SpAtk and, after setting up (1x NP is enough, since we're using Life Orb) sweeping at the opponent with full power. Aura Sphere & Shadow Ball makes Togekiss a powerhouse, since nothing will resist it. Roost will help him deal with Life Orb damage. 252 SpAtk EV's (if you pretending using EV's) is a bit too much, but that's how i like my Togekiss, specially if he's doing that job (a sweeper). 182 HP EV's is for Roost, heh. I like Togekiss with a lot of HP, it'll make him last longer on the field, specially if he's using Leftovers. 76 Speed EV's is self-explanatory.

    The other is Feraligatr, but i'll not rate him, i'm a bit rusty, ya know? Haha!! So, yeah, good luck! I'll leave the rest with other raters (if there's any)

    Thanks for the Togekiss tips, decided to keep it on me. What two pokes would really round this out? I had a Heracross, but it couldn't really hold its own (surprising because the one in my B2 is killer).

    Oh and Feraligatr doesn't have Water Gun anymore. It has....Take Down I think? Really surprised Water Gun stayed on the whole first half of the game.

    Your team seems fragile so your gonna want Snorlax after you beat the elite 4. For now a good wall will have to be your meganium.

    Meganium
    -Toxic
    -Leech Seed
    -Solarbeam
    -Sunny Day

    Typhlosion
    -Eruption
    -Earthquake
    -Thunderpunch
    -Solarbeam

    This could be a good solar beaming team just saying

    The wall you want to hold this team down is Donphan.

    Donphan@Chesto Berry
    -Earthquake
    -Rest
    -Rock Slide
    -Roar

    You can catch one easily in victory road.

    This team's not really fragile, JAWS, both Meganium and Feraligatr can endure a good amount of hits...actually, this team is pretty strong in defenses, if you ask me.
    Especially Fera', since he have reasonably good defenses, and have one of the best types for a wall in-game. Water Type weakness are kindly uncommon, if you ask me, specially in-game. Two Weakness in, just, Thunder-and-Grass attacks is something i call great.
    Togekiss can endure SpAtks easily, and if he's Togekiss is using my Set...he become a pure wall. And the AL is just so stupid...there's no need to worry.
    And JAWS...no Sunnyday on this team. Only Meganium and Typhlosion will make good use of it, but i don't it's usable...not to mention it's cripple Feraligatr.

    Defensive & Offensive Feraligatr Set:
    Feraligatr@Leftovers
    Careful Nature
    EV's: 252 SpDef /252 HP
    ~Watefall
    ~Ice Punch/Dragon Claw
    ~Earthquake
    ~Dragon Dance
    Dragon Dance will supply the lack of Adamant Nature, before someone ask it. Both Waterfall and Ice Punch will deal Ground Types that wall Earthquake. Earthquake is also walled by Flying Types; which Ice Punch deals with. Earthquake is mainly for hitting Steel types, that wall both your STAB (Waterfall) and Ice Punch, not to mention it's have a great Base Power by itself.
    Dragon Claw is an option over Ice Punch, mainly because Dragon Claw is just resisted by Steel Types; whose Earthquake already deal. So it's your option, and i recommend that you use Dragon Claw too. An pure offensive Feraligatr run the same moveset, the only thing it's change it's his EV's and Nature. If you want using him as a pure sweeper, consider using those EV's (remember, he gonna exactly the same moveset, no changes):
    Jolly Nature (+Speed -SpAtk)
    EV's: 252 Atk/ 252 Speed
    Keep the Leftovers, though, he makes good use of her due to its typing.

    Also, consider this too: Togekiss>>>Typhlosion. Typhlosion is not a good poke. I wouldn't use such a thing. If you can, change him to another Fire Type, like Infernape, for example, or any other poke you prefer, really. My recommendation is a Fighting Type because i love'em, and i think i can provide a better moveset and he's probably will having better synergy with this team.

    For Meganium...try sticking with this:
    Meganium@Leftovers/Whatever
    Careful nature
    EV's: 252 HP/176 Def/82SpDef
    ~Swords Dance
    ~Body Slam
    ~Seed Bomb
    ~Leech Seed
    This leave her with more options than you think.
    Body Slam will supply Meganium's lack of good physical moves, not to mention it's have a nice 30% of chance to induze paralysis. While the enemy's poke is paralyzed, she gonna be faster than him and, if you're wisely enough (i suppose you are) you gonna set-up with Swords Dance and shoot a Leech Seed on the enemy, too, which'll make Meganium last longer.
    Your Main attack option is Seed Bomb; which packs good base power already, and if you count STAB, it'll be doing lots of damage on anything that doesn't resist it.
    The EV's push's her to a more defensive side, but it's the best she can do. Careful nature for obvious reasons, and the same with SpDef EV's. Careful+SpDef EV's will deal with most Fire Types attacks, and most of them comes in form of Special Attacks. The 252 Def EV's will do exactly the same thing as i stated above.

    Well, that's it! Good luck (again) dude!

    What's up with you and Togekiss lol

    Jaws, stop with the crappy Rates. I thought you told me you would learn, but all I see is this:

    That sucks. Ingame you'll want a more Offensive Moveset, like Earthquake / Rock Slide / Fire Fang / Ice Shard.

    Your team is nice. You might want more coverage on all of your starters though because only having 3 pokemon you'll need a way to deal with all 17 types.

    Having a tank is not necessary in game. A strong FWG (Fire Water Grass) core is very durable to many threats. A single pokemon will not be able to KO all three of his team.

    Feraligatr Lv. 45

    -Waterfall
    -Ice Fang
    -Crunch
    -Earthquake

    Typhlosion Lv. 44

    -Flamethrower
    -Hidden Power (If good type). Otherwise Focus Blast
    -Swift/Return until Thunder Punch later
    -Dig Earthquake if possible

    Meganium Lv. 45

    -Giga Drain
    -Body Slam
    -Substitute
    -Leech Seed

    Don't worry about EVs ingame while making your way through the game.
