Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good in-game team for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire?

5 votes

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. You might also want to keep the starter.
- 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. As such, suggesting Dusknoir is not the best idea. If you do suggest such a Pokemon, it might be a good idea to include an alternative.
- Items, EVs, and Natures are not required.
- Please provide ample explanation.

I'll write one for Treecko.

image


image
Sceptile @ Sceptilite
Ability: Overgrow > Lightningrod
- Giga Drain/ Leaf Storm
- Earthquake
- Dragon Claw
- Rock Slide

Mudkip will be better for your Water HM user, and Blaziken has better type advantage, but guess what? I have a soft spot for Treecko.

Wait until L21 to evolve Treecko, because it can only get Giga Drain at that point. You can replace Giga Drain later for Leaf Storm or Leaf Blade if you want Sceptile to be fully physical, but Giga Drain is really useful early on. If you ever need Giga Drain again, you can reteach it; you don't have that option if you let Treecko evolve at L16.

Other moves are pretty standard. Sceptile has a nice physical movepool, so it's highly viable to have Leaf Storm as your sole special move and 3 other physical moves to allow Sceptile to stay in after using Leaf Storm. Other good moves you can consider are Brick Break, X-Scissor, Power-Up Punch and False Swipe (to catch Pokemon).

image
Linoone
Ability: Pick Up
- Cut
- Strength
- Rock Smash
- Headbutt

Hoenn = Linoone
Linoone = Pick Up
Pick Up = free crap

Lets be honest, what Hoenn team is complete without Linoone. Aside from giving you free stuff, Linoone also doubles as a pretty good HM user, and a decent battle Pokemon with only Headbutt. Of course Ghost is a problem, but if your entire team is wiped and Linoone is your only surviving Pokemon, you're in serious trouble anyway. If you really want to, you can replace Headbutt with Surf for another HM move, or Shadow Claw for better coverage. You can delete all HM moves once at the E4 and Linoone is good to deal with Phoebe.

image
Tentacruel @ Black Sludge
Ability: Clear Body/ Liquid Ooze
- Surf
- Sludge Wave
- Waterfall/ Dazzling Gleam
- Dive/ Ice Beam

You can get Tentacruel pretty easily and early on, and it'll serve as good HM slave for all the water you need to deal with in Hoenn. While it has mediocre attacking stats (70/80 respectively), it does have access to 3 HM moves and nice typing to cover both Sceptile and Linoone's weaknesses. After you get to the E4, you can delete your HM moves and give Tentacruel more useful moves in Dazzling Gleam/ Ice Beam.

If you want, you can replace Tentacruel with Sharpedo, but it does have shoddy defences and it's rather lack luster without Speed Boost. Milotic is also another option, but evolving Feebas is a hassle.

image
Magnezone @ Magnet
Ability: Sturdy
- Thunderbolt
- Flash Canon
- Tri Attack
- (filler move)

Not the most brilliant move pool in the world, but the Electric/ Steel typing really helps. Magnezone will be great help against Norman and Winona, but watch out for Earthquake on Altaria. I'm pretty sure Slaking doesn't pack Earthquake, but just bear that in mind as well. If you're worried about Earthquake, you can use Magnet Rise as your final move, or either Reflect or Light Screen if you're not too fussed about it.

image
Swellow @ Sharp Beak
Ability: Guts
- Fly
- Roost
- Return/ Facade
- Steel Wing

Swellow is probably the best Fly user in Hoenn, except for Crobat; the others are a bit lacking in attack to make use of Fly in battle. Return is probably the better option, since it'll do 102 STAB consistently not the regular 70 STAB from Facade. Steel Wing is the most viable move for the last slot, since Swellow has a pretty shallow movepool. U-Turn is an option, but in-game you can switch when you need to.

As said, Crobat is another option, but on this team it shares Phsyic weakness with Tentacruel, who you can always replace with Sharpedo.

image
Froslass @ Expert Belt/ Wise Glasses
Ability: Snow Cloak
- Ice Beam/ Frost Breath
- Shadow Ball
- Thunderbolt
- Confuse Ray

Froslass is pretty good BoltBeam user, with passable sp. atk and good speed. A bit of a hassle to get, but I do really like Froslass, so I've included her. Frost Breath is better in most cases, because it'll be 120 STAB rather than 90, bar random Shell Armour Pokemon. Shadow Ball for other STAB, and Confuse Ray just to be annoying.


If you're playing during the special shiny Beldum event, I would say replace Froslass with Metagross.

image
Metagross @ Expert Belt
Ability: Clear Body
- Meteor Mash/ Power-Up Punch
- Zen Headbutt/ Psychic
- Bullet Punch
- Earthquake

So while Meteor Mash is really great STAB, it lacks reliability and accuracy. Power-Up punch is better just because it will always raise attack and is 100% accurate. The other moves are pretty self explanatory, although you can use a mixed set with Psychic > Zen Headbutt for accuracy.

Sky Attack makes you a sitting duck for 1 turn.
I'd agree that Swellow could use another flying move, but maybe Aerial Ace considering how many trainers like to spam evasion moves in-game.
fondant, say I were to use Sharpedo instead of Tentacruel with all the water HM moves and Crunch and main dark type move, what item would you suggest?
Lets say we don't wanna use a hn slave on our team? What would we use. (By hm slave I mean Linoone)
If I would to use Crobat instead of Swellow and Sharpedo instead of Tentacruel, what could be their movesets?
Quick question, what would be a good froslass alternitive?

Well here's mine:

Blaziken

Blaziken

Ability: Blaze
Moves:
- Flare Blitz
- Brave Bird
- High Jump Kick
- Earthquake (TM) / Stone Edge (TM)

You can teach Blaziken Flare Blitz and High Jump Kick by going to the Move Reminder and exchanging one Heart Scale per move. Otherwise use Blaze Kick and Sky Uppercut, which you learn by levelling up.

TM26 Earthquake can be found in the Sea Floor Cavern.
TM71 Stone Edge can be purchased from the Lilycove Department Store for 30,000 Pokémon Dollars.


Metagross

Metagross

Ability: Clear Body (this is a very good Ability, especially considering the amount of Pokémon that use stat lowering moves such as Growl and Screech in game.)
Moves:
- Meteor Mash
- Zen Headbutt
- Earthquake (TM)*
- Bullet Punch / Agility

Obviously this is obtained via the Shiny Beldum Event. It is equipped with the Metagrossite, so feel free to Mega Evolve it in battle.

*TM26 Earthquake can be found in the Sea Floor Cavern.


Linoone

Linoone

Ability: Pickup (picks up items along the way, which can help you in game).
Moves:
- Cut (HM)
- Strength (HM)
- Rock Smash (HM)
- Surf (HM) / Dig (TM)*

Linoone is basically a HM Slave with Cut, Strength and Rock Smash. Dig can be used in the same way as an Escape Rope to escape caves and Surf can be used to surf at a normal speed (since we also have Sharpedo in the party). When navigating around tight bends, where if you go too fast you'll end up on the shore, that is when having a normal speed surfer pays off. Surf should be used until you catch a Carvanha on Route 118 and teach it Surf, then you can delete Surf if you so wish by going to the Move Deleter in Lilycove City.

I won't list the locations of the HM's since they're needed to complete the game anyway.

*TM28 Dig can be obtained on Route 114.


Gardevoir

Gardevoir

Ability: Synchronize (Synchronize passes poison, paralyze, or burn to the Pokémon that inflicted it.)

Moves:
- Psychic
- Calm Mind
- Magical Leaf
- Moon Blast/Dazzling Gleam

Ralts can be obtained in a horde encounter on Route 104.

Magical Leaf comes in handy against Water/Ground types that Manectric can't touch, as well as Rock/Ground types. Moonblast can be learnt at level 62, however it can be learnt sooner by going to the Move Reminder and getting him to teach it, it in exchange for a Heat Scale. Dazzling Gleam is an alternative option, not as powerful but strikes multiple enemies which is useful for hordes.


Swellow

Swellow

Ability: Guts
Moves:
- Fly
- Façade (TM)
- Steel Wing (TM)

- Roost (sneaking up/TM)*

TM19 Roost is awarded to the player as a Prize for defeating Winona, the Fortree Gym Leader.
TM42 Façade can be purchased in Mauville City for 10,000 Pokémon Dollars.
*TM51 Steel Wing can be found in Granite Cave.


Manectric

Manectric

Ability: Static/Lightning Rod
Moves:
- Discharge
- Overheat (TM)
- Volt Switch (TM)

- Hidden Power (TM) / Flash (TM) / Thunder Wave (TM)*

If Manectric has a good Hidden Power type such as Ice, Grass or Water keep Hidden Power as your main move, otherwise discard it. Flash improves your visibility in dark caves, although it isn't really needed. What I did, since you can get Hidden Power and Flash as TM's quite early in the game is, I taught Manectric Flash when I needed it, after it was of no use to me, I retaught it Hidden Power again. Thunder Wave can be used in the same way, since it learns Thunder Wave through levelling up and you get Thunder Wave as a TM quite early in game. You can teach Manectric Thunder Wave if you don't get the Hidden Power type you want, or for when you are about to catch a Legendary Pokémon.

TM10 Hidden Power can be obtained in Fortree City.
TM50 Overheat is awarded to the player as a prize for defeating Flannery.
TM70 Flash can be obtained in Granite Cave.
TM72 Volt Switch is awarded to the player as a prize for defeating Wattson.
*TM73 Thunder Wave can be pruchased in Slateport City for 5000 Pokémon Dollars.


Sharpedo

Sharpedo

Ability: Rough Skin
Moves:
- Crunch
- Surf (HM)
- Dive (HM)
- Waterfall (HM)

I won't bother listing the locations of these HM's, since their necessary to complete the game anyway.

You can get a Carvanha with a Good Rod on Route 118, however they aren't very common so you'll have to keep trying until you get one. Route 118 is also the location you get the Good Rod.

Waterfall is Sharpedo main attacking Water move and allows you to climb waterfalls, Surf is excellent on Sharpedo, as it moves twice as fast when surfing and Dive allows you to dive underwater and explore beneath the sea.


Now you may have noticed that there is actually seven Pokémon here not six, that is because I rotate my Pokémon around every so often. Linoone is always in the party, as he is my HM Slave, however he is never used in battle. Swellow and Sharpedo are also constantly in the party, while Blaziken, Metagross, Gardevoir and Manectric are constantly rotated, that way by the time I get to the Pokémon League I'll have a full party of six that are battle ready, having replaced Linoone.

Woah. That's a lot of TMs. Especially Stone Edge. People may not like spending money on TMs, and Stone Edge isn't too reliable either. I guess you could use Eathquake. Another thing, there are quite a few recoil moves on Blaziken..
Yeah it is a lot of TM's, but all the TM's I've put you can obtain quite early in game, some of which you can even learn through levelling up. I don't understand why people wouldn't want to spend money on TM's, if they want to use them, they're going to have to buy them eventually, whether that be during the game, or once they've completed it. I understand what you're saying for Blaziken however you don't need to use Flare Blitz and High Jump Kick, I said you can otherwise use Blaze Kick and Sky Uppercut, I only taught my Blaziken Flare Blitz and HJK for when I was battling the Elite 4.

enter image description here
Sceptile

Swords Dance- Most of the useful moves Sceptile can learn are physical. Swords dance boosts its already decent attack and makes it a good physical sweeper, especially when mega evolved.
Leaf Blade- Good power, STAB
Dragon Claw- Good power, STAB when Sceptile is mega evolved
Rock Slide- Coverage against many of Sceptile's weaknesses

enter image description here
Swellow

Fly- Good power, STAB, useful in-game
Steel Wing- Covers steel and ice weaknesses
Endeavor- Swellow has bad defenses and will have low health often. This move will be handy then.
U-Turn- Good power, allows you to switch Pokemon without wasting a turn.

enter image description here
Gallade

Close Combat/Brick Break- Your call. Close combat does more power but has lower pp and lowers your defenses. Both have STAB and good power.
Psycho Cut- Decent power, STAB
Hypnosis- Puts enemy to sleep.
Night Slash- Decent power, covers ghost weakness.

enter image description here
Tentacruel

Surf- Good power, STAB, useful in-game
Ice Beam- Good power, covers grass weakness
Sludge Bomb- Good power, STAB
Toxic Spikes/Toxic- Again, your call. Toxic only affects one Pokemon, but badly poisons it. Toxic spikes has to be used twice to badly poison, but it affects the whole team.

enter image description here
Magnezone

Thunderbolt- Good power, STAB
Flash Cannon- Good power, STAB
Thunder Wave- Paralyzes target
Metal Sound- Harshly lowers opponent's special defense and pretty much makes Magnezone unstoppable.

enter image description here
Camerupt

Overheat- Great power, STAB
Flamethrower- Has lower power than overheat, but covers for Overheat's low pp.
Earth Power- Good power, STAB
Stone Edge- Great power. There are others moves you could use here, like Sunny Day or Amnesia. Your call.

answered by
dude change earth power to earthquake camerupt has higher attack than special
Actually camperupt has 5 more SpAttack than Attack.
This team is actually god tier.

10/10 would train again.

Im gonna make a team for Swampert here as I beat the whole story mode (Including delta series) in two days and never died once. (I know right lol)

Swampert @ Swamperite
Ability: Torrent
-Hammer Arm Great move
-Ice Beam Coverage
-Earthquake STAB
-Waterfall STAB

Swampert is my personal favorite of the three starters. Who needs an Uber starter and the only grass dragon type ;-;. But anyways swampert is a great pick because he fills the spot for water hm user and he has a great movepool. He has high defenses and attack so make sure you have physical hits if you swap any moves out.

Metagross/Aggron@ Leftovers
Ability: Clearbody/Iron Head
Metagross
-Meteor Mash STAB move and raises attack
-Psychic (Switchable with Zen Headbutt)
-Ice Punch Coverage
-Earthquake coverage
Aggron
-Earthquake Coverage
-Iron Head Very good with iron head ability
-Stone Edge Nice overall attack
-Double Edge High damage attack that almost all Aggrons have

Every team needs that tank that makes everyone mad when it endures everything you throw at it. Aggron may have higher defenses but Metagross has psychic to help with fighting types and has great attack. Either of these Pokemon would work as they are both very good tanks.

Gardevoir@ Life orb or Gardevoirite (If your having trouble finding those items go for leftovers)
Ability: Trace (Very hard to find its hidden ability)
-Moonblast Do I need to say way?
-Psychic great move for the high special attack
-Shadow Ball Helps you against other psychic types
-Thunderbolt Coverage

Gardevoir is a great special attacker with an amazing movepool. Every team needs a head psychic type and Gardevoir is a great pick. You could also go with alakazam but I just love gardevoir.

Raichu/ [email protected]
Ability: Static/ Volt Absorb
Jolteon
-Thunderbolt High accuracy and great damage
-Shadow Ball Very good move and suprisingly compatible with Jolteon
-Signal Beam Gosh darn grass Pokemon will eat you alive without it
-Discharge Another high accuracy and great damage attack
Raichu: Volt Tackle or Discharge, Iron Tail, Brick Break
-Volt Tackle/Discharge STAB
-Iron Tail
-Brick Break
-Fake out/ Focus Blast

Your going to need an electric type. It has great coverage and usually very fast. Jolteon and Raichu both are amazing but it can be a little hard to find a thunder stone so another option is manetric

Heracross@ Expert Belt
Ability: Guts
-MegaHorn STAB
-Close Combat STAB
-Stone Edge Coverage
-Swords Dance Self explanitory

Heragross is a very good physical sweeper with an interesting typing neutraling out some disadvantages

[email protected]/Latiasite or Souldew
Ability: Levitate
-Psychic Good move for special attack
-Recover regeneration helps
-Shadow Ball great move
-Surf/Dive as it is needed for the story mode (I hate dive so much and I'm glad some games don't require you to have it D:)

Every team needs a dragon type and latios/latias are great. Steven gives you one early on (Based on game) and is a great partner. They have a really good movepool and who wouldn't want to fly around the huge hoenn region on a dragon?!

Oops, I realise you need the Eon Ticket. Ah well, but it's good to mention.... Another thing (I keep saying that XD) , you could say that Absol can be found holding a Life Orb (in the rustling 'raised tail' grass), but they're rather rare (5% chance!).
Don't think he should use jolteon.
love the team. but can i add an altaria in replacement of someone in this team.
Here are some changes for these teams.
1. Replace Hammer Arm with Rain Dance because Swampert will need all the speed it can get & if you want an almost all physical you  could replace Ice Beam with either Ice Punch or Rock Slide.
1. This is a in-game team, it doesn't need to set up. 2. Ice Punch is a move tutor move, and the move tutors are only at the end of the game.

If you wanna go the Mudkip route:

Swampert @ Swampertite

Ability: Torrent > Swift Swim
- Earthquake
- Hammer Arm
- Waterfall
- Rain Dance

Manectric @ Manectrite
Ability: Static > Intimidate
- Thunderbolt
- Volt Switch
- Flamethrower
- Signal Beam

Gardevoir @ Gardevoirite
Ability: Trace> Pixilate
- Moonblast
- Psychic
- Calm Mind
- Energy Ball

Breloom @ Life Orb
Ability: Effect Spore
- Mach Punch
- Seed Bomb
- Drain Punch
- Stone Edge

This is the group of pokes I used for every ruby and sapphire run I did way back when. For in game this is all you really need and new coverage moves make this team even more viable. You don't need any more than those four pokes to beat the game and less pokes means higher levels later in the game. Add a couple HM slaves for death fodder and getting around.

Maybe suggest a replacement for Metagross? Not everyone has the event Beldum. Anyway, you already have a Steel Type, Aggron. Maybe suggest a less competitive team? Other than Gyarados's Waterfall and Salamence's Fly, there are no HM users.
Gardevoir if you want with:
Psychic
Moonblast
Shadow Ball
Focus Blast
6 Megas though.
He probably want s it to be like Mega Evolve whichever Pokémon if necessary.
exactly
But 6 of them.
You can only evolve one, so during the battle the other 5 are holding completely useless items.
You do not need two tanks so i would suggest switching aggron or metagross out with a special attacker as you do not have many of those

I'm making my Swampert team that I used to beat the game.

Swampert @ Swapertite
Ability: Torrent > Swift Swim
- Waterfall
- Earthquake
- Power-Up Punch
- Rockslide/ Stone Edge/ Facade/ Dive

Nothing is greater than a Swampert. Nothing. Except for it's mega evolution which really just makes it kinda OP.
Because his Attack was already pretty good compared to his Spec. Attack and with his 'roids there was no doubt about whether or not it would be a physical set. Waterfall is a good STAB move and with his huge Attack it just gets better. Earthquake is Earthquake, no explanation needed. Power-Up Punch is just there to make his Attack even more OP, and the rest are coverage or fillers.

Exploud @ Leftovers
Ability: Soundproof
- Boomburst
- Surf
- Flamethrower
- Extrasensory/ Shadow Ball

Exploud is a decent Pokémon with stats that always tend to lean towards the Spec. Attack. So Ah- Ha we have our first Special-Attacker! Boomburst is a fantastic move with a base power of 140 and 210 with STAB. Surf is a good move and is your means of water transportation. Flamethrower is a good move that provides coverage and takes out the pesky grass types. The last slot is a coverage holder. You can have Extrasensory to annihilate your fighting type weakness (which you get through sneaking), or Shadow Ball which you can use to take out Phoebe the second of the Elite 4.

Magnezone @ Magnet
Ability: Sturdy
- Thunderbolt/ Thunder
- Flash Cannon
- Tri Attack
- Mirror Coat/ Rain Dance

Magnezone is a beast. His defenses aren't that bad so he can hold in there longer than most and he has a really good Spec. Attack. Tri Attack is a decent move and is really just a filler and Flash Cannon is your Steel type STAB. Thunderbolt is a great move and fits better with the Mirror Coat set. Thunder becomes totally OP when you add Rain Dance to it and if you send out a Mega Swampert (Swolepert) his speed will double making him just that much more over-powered.
P.S. If you choose not to evolve your Magneton and just give him the Eviolite from route 123 he has less HP and less in both Attacks than Magnezone, but every other stat gets better.

Altaria @ Altarianite
Ability: Natural Cure > Pixilate
- Dragon Pulse
- Moon Blast
- Echoed Voice
- Fire Blast/ Flamethrower

Altaria is my favorite Drgon type you can obtain in the Hoenn (Besides Flygon). This Pokémon is a beast in Battle and in the Contests. Dragon Pulse is your main Dragon type move and is coverage against other Dragons. Moon Blast is a great move as is, and just gets better when you mega evolve. Echoed Voice was my Swablu's best buddy till it evolved and I just couldn't part with it, not to mention how much better it gets wit Pixilate. Fire Blast,and Flamethrower are great moves, but I prefer Fire Blast because of Contests.

I know, I know, no Pokémon has Fly, Dive, Strength or Rock Smash and that's because I just waited to get the Eon Flute before doing any Flying and the rest was just me switching out random HM Slaves and other Pokémon to do what was necessary.

I hope this helped,

 ToatsMuhGoats

I have been experimenting with other Pokémon in my Alpha Sapphire, and Gallade has been phenomenal. I kinda cheated a little and brought a Dawn Stone over from my Pokémon Y version so I could have a Power-house early on and he just rocks it. Here's his set-up:

Gallade @ Galladite

I just love mega sceptile, he was my favorite starter from hoenn and still is. So Energy Ball is STAB, Dragon Claw is STAB as a mega and EQ and Rock Slide Covers all other weaknesses

Gyarados
Gyarados

  • Aqua Tail
  • Ice Fang
  • Chrunch
  • Earthquake

Another awesome Pokemon that can be mega evolved but remember only one Pokemon can mega evolve per fight. So Aqua Tail is STAB and the rest is coverage(Chrunch is STAB if mega)

Manectric
Manetric

  • Thunderbolt
  • Flamethower
  • Volt Switch
  • Quick Attack / Thunder Wave

Thunderbolt is STAB, Flamethower is coverage, Volt Switch is a free switch and STAB, Quick attack is priority or Thunder wave for paralysis

Skarmory
Skarmory

  • Fly
  • Steel Wing
  • Night Slash
  • Spikes / Toxic

An awesome tank that can take physical hits awesomely, Fly and Steel Wing is STAB, Night Slash is coverage and Spikes or toxic are great status moves

Camerupt
Camerupt

  • Flamethrower
  • Earth Power
  • Solar Beam
  • Sunny Day / Yawn

A great Pokemon that can setup Sunny Day to boost STAB Flamethrower and make solar beam hit in one turn, Earth Power is coverage and Yawn is also an option

Gardevoir
Gardevoir

  • Psychic
  • Moonblast
  • Shadow Ball/ Energy Ball
  • Thunderbolt / Calm Mind

A great Pokemon that adds to this teams diversity, Psychic and Moonblast is STAB, Shadow Ball and thunderbolt or Energy ball are coverage or Calm mind to setup

Hope you liked it :D

First off I love all of your Good In-Game team suggestions. Second of all I have some changes you can make.
1. Replace Energy Ball with either Leaf Blade or Giga Drain as Leaf Blade has the same power and has a High Crit Ratio and Giga Drain can heal 50% of your HP.
2. Replace Aqua Tail with Waterfall as it is more accurate and it can flinch.
and that's it.
Well since Sceptile is more specially offensive leaf blade isnt an option, of course you could have Giga drain instead but energy ball has more power which is better with an offensive pokemon like sceptile. Waterfall is also a great move but in my opinion Aqua Tail is better, thanks for the suggestions though :)
you misspelled crunch...

Evolution of Nuzleaf is Shiftry.
A few points: 1. People may not like to use legends like Groudon as they are somethings overpowered and kinda spoil the game 2. 3 Megas?! 3. Shiftry has a small movepool, you should mention which level to evolve Nuzleaf to get the required moves 4. Nuzleaf requires a Leaf Stones to evolve, which may be difficult to find
Ectridash, note that primal reversion (kyogre, groudon) are not considered megas
I know, but Starter Mega, Mega Latios and Mega Metagross=3 Megas
Oops, didn't see that sorry

Sceptile
Ability: Overgrow -> Lightning Rod
Item: Wide Lens
Moves:
- Focus Blast: TM52 from Lilycove Department Store for 30k pokedollars
- Frenzy Plant: from Mauville move tutor
- Dragon Pulse: from Battle Resort move tutor for 12BP
- Earthquake: TM26 from Seafloor Cavern beneath Route 128

The first three are to utilize Sceptile's very high special attack. If you want to meg-evolve him for even more instead of the Wide Lens accuracy boost that works too. Earthquake is a strong filler move. I prefer Frenzy Plant to Leaf Storm because it has a higher base power, and so a higher chance to OHKO the opponent. Focus Blast and Dragon Pulse are coverage moves, with DP getting STAB from Mega-Sceptile.


Gyarados
Ability: Intimidate -> Mold Breaker
Item: Wacan Berry (or whatever you want)
Moves:
- Waterfall: HM05, you need it to complete the game
- Crunch: Level 41
- Ice Fang: Level 32
- Stone Edge: TM71 from Lilycove Department Store for 30k pokedollars

Waterfall and Crunch are physical STAB. You can use Aqua Tail instead of Waterfall if you'd like, but I like the flinch Waterfall can give you. Ice Fang is coverage against Grass, and Stone Edge against guys like Charizard. You can mega-evolve it if you'd like, but personally I think other mega-evolutions are much better choices that Gyarados'.


Aggron
Ability: Rock Head -> Filter
Item: Assault Vest
Moves:
- Iron Tail: Level 35
- Stone Edge: see above
- Double Edge: Level 45
- Brick Break: TM31 in Sootopolis City

Iron Tail is STAB anti-Fairy, Stone Edge is also STAB. Double Edge is general coverage with a very strong move, especially given the Rock Head ability. Brick Break is a filler, taking advantage of the Fighting type's usefulness. The Assault Vest makes Aggron more of a tank, and I don't use status moves anyway. They're pointless in-game. Mega-Aggron is a less balanced tank, which is more applicable in some situations.


Gardevoir
Ability: Trace -> Pixilate
Item: nothing/anything
Moves:
- Shadow Ball: TM30 at Mt. Pyre
- Moonblast: Level 62 or Move Reminder in Fallarbor Town
- Thunderbolt: TM24 after New Mauville quest
- Psychic: Level 31

Psychic is STAB. Moonblast is STAB and anti-Dragon. Shadow Ball covers against Ghost and other Psychics. Thunderbolt is a strong electric move that is helped by Gardevoir's high SpA, especially helpful against Wallace and Steven's Skarmory. Gardevoir doesn't have any great abilities, but on a rare occasion Trace can help in some cool ways.


Heracross
Ability: Guts -> Skill Link
Item: Heracronite
Moves:
- Earthquake: see above
- Megahorn: Level 37
- Close Combat: Level 43
- Bullet Seed: Move Reminder in Fallarbor Town

You have to mega-evolve Heracross. You just have to. I mean, just look at that 185 base Att. As good as any other Pokemon are, Mega-Heracross is a flat out boss. Megahorn and Close Combat are really strong STAB. With Skill Link, Bullet Seed becomes one of the best Grass-type moves out there, and Earthquake is a regular. Remember: Mega-evolve Heracross at all times!!


Ninetales
Ability: Flash Fire
Item: whatever you want (I sometimes use Choice Specs)
Moves:
- Fire Blast: TM38 at Lilycove Department Store for 30k pokedollars
- Solar Beam: TM22 at the Safari Zone
- Dark Pulse: TM97 at the Team Magma/Aqua Hideout
- Psyshock: TM03 at Pacifidlog Town

Is a TM slave a thing? Ninetales is the butt of my team, but still fills a key role. I call it a SpA Sweeper Specialist. When theres a particularly annoying Pokemon that I don't want to waste one of my key troops on, I roll out Ninetales to hand out some super-effective mojo. Of course this doesn't always work, but the moveset I run on Ninetales highlights its strengths and covers my team pretty well. The Flash Fire ability is underrated, but if you can pick up Drought do so. Really helps with Fire Blast and Solar Beam.


You might be wondering why so few HMs. I don't like putting HMs on my main party Pokemon, so when I need an HM I'll switch someone (probably Nintales) out for an HM slave like Linoone or Sharpedo. Otherwise, this team will straight up scrape anyone who tries to beat you. (Assuming you don't throw out Mega-Sceptile in front of Glacia or something)

good 1 i tryed it and it worked
0 votes

i have finished the game 2 times and now I am doing it again and I was just looking through for some ideas for my team and I think sceptile team is a lot better like this

[email protected] abilty-lightning rod
moves
grass pledge/giga drain, can be learnt from a move tutor in mauvile city if Pokemon has good happiness I think. base 80 power 100 accuracy makes great use of its high special attack and giga drain is learnt prior evo I think
dragon pulse/dragon claw/dual chop, although only available post game dragon pulse is the best dragon move or it but since its not easily available dual chop or dragon caw will do
rock slide/hidden power rock if lucky, coverage move for 2 of sceptle megas weaknesses
focus blast/false swipe, false swipe to help catch stuff but focus blast is a great power move and with sceptile megas high special attack its a great filler move, also it seems to come in handy a lot other than its bad accuracy

[email protected] item,expert belt whatever you find in game abilty-thick fat
having a 4x weakness to ice on the team a fighting type with thick fat will destroy any ice types
moveset
close combat, great move
brick break/strength/ brick break can be a good stab move and doesn't get the def drops that close combat has and gets more pp, strength for a strength user and its an ok move
knock off. great move weakness coverage and knocks off item
fake out/rock slide/power up punch if didn't give brick break. fake out for some damage, rock slide goes well on it and covers weakness and power up punch can raise attack

if you do use this when training it after obtaining at granite cave goe back to the cave with all the wishmur and train on them, they will give off hp evs and it can easily beat them

[email protected] or life orb or specs, although hard to obtain, life orb can be gotten off wild absol and also you could have it as a mega but its pre good as is abilty lightning rod/ static
moveset
volt switch, great damage and switch
discharge/thunderbolt, thunderbolt is the better move but discharge is amazing if used in doucle battle with mega sceptile giving it a spc attack boost and damaging the other enemys
flamethrower, great move
always try for hidden power ice but other wise thunder wave to catch stuff and para an enemy

sharpedo as a surfer if you want the faster surfing but other wise I would recommend walrien or milotic
[email protected] ability- thick fat
moveset
ice beam, powerful stab
surf, stab and hm
yawn, if you can be bothered breeding it if not eq for electric types although its attack isn't that great
waterfall, hm

milotic@ mystic water, sea insence abilty-oblivious I think
moves
surf
ice beam
water fall
dragon pulse/dive

[email protected] this Pokemon is a monster after it mega evolves, having 1 of the highest attack stats in the game and stab priority move abilty frisk-prankster
moveset
shadow sneak, priority
shadow claw, sometimes shadow sneak isn't enough
knock off, good move
dazzleing gleam, will o wisp, dark types will walk all over banette without dazzling gleam

linoone@ whatever item it picks up ability -pick up
free items including kings rocks shiney stones rare candys and pp ups
moveset
cut hm
strength if not on hariyama
surfer until water type obtained
rock smash hm

linoone can be subbed out for zangoose or seviper that are both really good in game

[email protected] orb is good but you wont have it so silk scarf abilty will be immunity but it gets toxic boost , ha
moveset
return/façade stab move
close combat, great move
swords dance is good
rock slide/aerial ace/ x-scizzor/shadow claw rock slide to help with the flying weakness early on in the game and aerial ace for fighting types, x scissor for another good move buy because this is in game shadow claw is the best option, for competive quick attack

seviper@ don't know
seviper can be a good mixed attacker but has the physical advantage with coil
coil, set up attack
poison jab, main stab move
night slash, weakness coverage
earthquake , good move

this team will be good in game and hariyama will destroy the e4 with the dark type guy gone to it and the ice girl and the champion
banette will destroy the ghost girl and septile and walrien or milotic will destroy the dragon guy

hope you like my team
