I would like to have a versatile pokemon party to take on Darktyphlosion. we had a rematch... he beat me again. His party is completely different during every battle, there's no way for me to predict his next move! I will have one last battle with him, we're both using our BEST teams. But what should I use? Here is my current team (the one that I used in the 2nd battle):
Gengar-Shadow ball, Thunder, destiny bond, Hidden power (fighting)
Houndoom-Nasty plot, flamethrower, Dark pulse, and will-o-wisp
Swampert-Avalanche, waterfall, Stealth Rock, and Earthquake
Metagross-Meteor Mash, Earthquake, Agility, and Light Screen
Garchomp-Earthquake, Dragon Claw, Sandstorm, and Brick Break
Lucario-Close Combat, Swords Dance, Water Pulse, and extremespeed.
DarkTyphlosion's Rematch Team
Shedinja- swords dance, protect, X-scissor, mimic
Porygon 2-Conversion 2, trick Room, Tri-attack, zap cannon
Clefable- Follow me, moonlight, helping hand, Protect.
Claydol-Safeguard, magic coat, rain dance, rapid spin
Meganium-aromatherapy, safeguard, magic coat, leech seed
Umbreon-toxic, baton pass, mean look, protect
I led with Gengar and Lucario, he led with Porygon 2 and Umbreon. I decided to take out umbreon quickly, So I used close combat and hidden power on it. But It used protect, while porygon 2 used trick room. after this he switched his umbreon for clefable, and I used swords dance with lucario and thunder on porygon2 (which missed) porygone 2 used zap cannon, which paralyzed my Lucario. He used stealth rock with Clefable, I got paralyzed and couldn't move with lucario. I switched out gengar for swampert. After this, clefable used safeguard, and porygon 2 switched out for Claydol. Swampert used stealth rock and lucario used extremespedd on claydol. Claydol used rapid spin. clefable used protect. making my moves useless. after that. both of them switch out to porygon2 and shedinja. I decided to finish this. Shedinja used protect against my moves, and porygon 2 used conversion 2. and shedinja used mimic to copy it. then porygon 2 used tri attack again, and Shedinja used conversion 2 to become a NORMAL TYPE!! after this. My moves were useless and my pokemon were weak. so after a few turns of nothing for me, shedinja had maxed out its attack with swords dance, and started sweeping my team. Lucario had gone down from all of porygon 2's attacks. stealth rock took its toll too. I was left with gengar and houndoom. Houndoom lost a 1/4 of his health due to stealth rock, making him easy work for him. Clefable appeared and used follow me to block my hidden power, and ket setting up safeguard and magic coat, and whenever safeguard fell and she would use it, shedinja would use protect, making my move useless. after some toxi-stalling and shedinja attacks. My team went down, all I have to show for it is the act that I fainted his Meganium and his porygon 2.
