Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good in-game team for Pokemon Colosseum?

1 vote

No one else has done this yet, so why not?

-You might want to keep Espeon and/or Umbreon
-Six Pokemon are required and while legendaries can be suggested, do remember that many people do not like using them because of how easy it makes the game.
-Moves are required for each Pokemon.
-You should make sure to take into account that some people cannot trade, nor do they want to use cheating devices such as AR.
-Items, EVs, and Natures are not required. *
-Please provide ample explanation.

Umbreon @ Quick Claw
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 212 HP / 252 SAtk / 44 Spd
- Helping Hand
- Faint Attack
- Psychic
- Protect

Umbreon kinda sucks but I keep it because it is the starter along with Espeon. Usually it just ends up supporting with Helping Hand. Faint Attack is STAB that goes through evasion, which is helpful when facing the AI. Psychic is coverage.

Espeon @ TwistedSpoon
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 212 HP / 252 SAtk / 44 Spd
- Psychic
- Psybeam
- Light Screen
- Helping Hand

Poor movepool but Psychic can do some heavy damage. Psybeam is for when you run out of PP with Psychic. Helping Hand and Light Screen support the team.

Raikou @ Scope Lens
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
- Crunch
- Thunderbolt
- Thunder
- Rain Dance

Crunch is coverage. Thunderbolt is STAB. Thunder is also STAB, used when either you run out of THunderbolt or when Rain Dance is up. Rain Dance supports Suicune.

Suicune @ BrightPowder
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 12 HP / 252 SAtk / 244 Spd
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Protect
- Reflect

Surf is an excellent move in Double Battles, especially in Gen III where it only hits the opponents. Ice Beam is coverage. Reflect is team support.

Hitmontop @ Black Belt
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SDef
- Brick Break
- Protect
- Return
- Revenge

While there might be better Fighting types, Hitmontop has the advantage of Intimidate, one of the best Double Battle abilities. Brick Break is STAB. As is Revenge. Return is neutral coverage.

Flygon @ Amulet Coin
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Atk / 132 SAtk / 124 Spd
- Earthquake
- Fire Blast
- DragonBreath
- Crunch

Earthquake is a good reason why Flygon is here. Dragonbreath is STAB. Fire Blast and Crunch are coverage.

You can get Flygon?

I'm currently playing through my game (not done yet) so the movesets need work, as well as the fact that I don't recall the items they are holding at this point. Anyway, here is my in-game team.

Umbreon (Name: Deimos)
-Secret Power
-Faint Attack
-Confuse Ray
Everyone I know has used the Espeon. Being a more unconventional player I decided to toss this to the wind and use Umbreon. With access to tons of useful status moves and solid defensive stats it's an exceptional support Pokemon, although it isn't too strong.

Meganium (Name: Biscuit)
-Sunny Day
-Light Screen
-Razor Leaf (Solarbeam)
Meganium is one of my favorite starters. Even though Quilava and Croconaw are better in most people's opinion, I have always favored defense over offense. It can stay on the field for a long time thanks to Synthesis, which is one thing it has over Umbreon, and Razor Leaf is useful against both opponents in battle.

Ampharos (Name: Blackout)
-Thundershock (Thunder)
Thunder Wave
-Cotton Spore
Ampharos is moderately bulky and has plenty of special attack to utilize. Thunder Wave and Cotton Spore are used to aid in catching Shadow Pokemon. Aside from Raikou it's the best Electric type you can obtain in my opinion, despite its low speed.

Mantine (Name: Lester)
-Wing Attack
-Take Down
Early game, Mantine is a fantastic Water type with loads of power and bulk behind it. However, as you go through the game, it's usefulness declines as other water types with far better movepools outclass it, especially those with access to Surf. I simply adore this Pokemon, so I've kept it all the way through. If you don't like my decision, look for a Water Type with Surf, like Quagsire or Qwilfish. However, if you do decide to use Mantine, it won't disappoint. Hopefully.

Stantler (Name: Randolph)
-Take Down
Are you tired of a far-too-heavy focus on bulk and not enough physical power? Yeah, so was I. I didn't really think this through. Anyway, those problems were remedied by the entrance of Stantler! Although it's a tad late game a physical force was very much welcome on my team. While Take Down has recoil problems it has a lot of power behind it and Hypnosis helps catch late-game Shadow Pokemon. Although normally Stantler isn't considered, it's very useful in Colosseum. And did I mention Intimidate? It's one of the best abilities in Colosseum.

Flygon (Name: Ribbon)
-Slash (I think)
Another thing that was dragging my team was the presence of Electric type foes, especially Magnemite and Magneton. Flygon became my saving grace in this aspect. It has incredible offensive prowess along with decent bulk, and has access to incredibly powerful moves. Although it's available sort of late in the game and Vibrava is difficult to raise, Flygon's payoff is more than worth it.

So there's my team. Feel free to take ideas or edit it to your liking!
