Please rate my team for the Elite Four (Pokemon Black and White)?

1 vote

Hi, I'm new to the site and was wondering if anybody could rate my team since I just beat Drayden (Opelucid City) and am on my way to Victory Road to face the Elite Four. I'm not particularly good at organising my teams even though I've been playing the Pokemon games for years. Kind of embarrassing but anyway. My team is as follows:

Species: Archeops ♂ (Froot Loop)
Type: Rock/Flying
Level: 43
Nature: Bold
Ability: Defeatist - (Lowers stats when HP becomes half or less)

Held item: Rocky Helmet
Moveset: Crunch, Ancient Power, Fly, DragonBreath

Species: Chandelure ♂ (Lumiere)
Type: Ghost/Fire
Level: 44
Nature: Rash
Ability: Flash Fire (It powers up Fire-type moves if it's hit by one)
Stats: (HP: 118, Attack: 62, Defense: 94, Special Attack: 152, Special Defense: 90, Speed: 91)
Held item: Amulet Coin
Moveset: Will-O-Wisp, Flame Burst, Inferno, Hex

Species: Fraxure ♀ (Poptart - yes I give them stupid names)
Type: Dragon
Level: 46
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Mold Breaker (Moves can be used regardless of abilities)
Stats: (HP: 127, Attack: 132, Defense: 83, Special Attack: 45, Special Defense: 51, Speed: 83)
Held item: Dragon Fang
Moveset: Dragon Dance, Slash, Dragon Pulse, Dragon Claw

Species: Serperior ♂ (Shamwow)
Type: Grass
Level: 42
Nature: Calm
Ability: Overgrow (Powers up Grass-type moves in a pinch)
Stats: (HP: 124, Attack: 77, Defense: 98, Special Attack: 78, Special Defense: 100, Speed: 112)
Held item: Miracle Seed
Moveset: Strength, Mega Drain, Leaf Blade, Coil

Species: Simipour ♀ (Lady Gaga)
Type: Water
Level: 41
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Gluttony (Encourages the early use of a held Berry)
Stats: (HP: 123, Attack: 105, Defense: 64, Special Attack: 84, Special Defense: 69, Speed: 111)
Held item: Scope Lens
Moveset: Cut, Surf, Bite, Scald

Species: Vanilluxe ♂ (Waffle)
Type: Ice
Level: 47
Nature: Bashful
Ability: Ice Body (The Pokemon gradually regains HP in a hailstorm)
Stats: (HP: 125, Attack: 110, Defense: 85, Special Attack: 109, Special Defense: 101, Speed: 96)
Held item: NeverMeltIce
Moveset: Avalanche, Ice Beam, Mirror Coat, Acid Armor

Extra information: I'm aware the levels are a bit too low but I've only just started training on Route 10 so hopefully their levels will be much higher once I've reached the League. As for Chandelure's many fire moves, I'm thinking of deleting one of them but plan on keeping Will-O-Wisp since it works well with Hex. Inferno also inflicts a burn as well as a high amount of damage but it only has a 50% chance of hitting the target which makes me reconsider having it on Chandelure's moveset.

Fraxure I plan on evolving into Haxorus. I understand this Pokemon is more advantageous in the Attack department rather than Special Attack so I'm thinking of deleting Dragon Pulse in favour of a move that benefits its abilities.

With the exception of Simipour's "Surf" and Archeop's "Fly", I might delete all the HM moves on my team since they are not very helpful in my experience, only on the field. And even then in Black and White they aren't really needed to progress in the game (apart from the tree you need to cut at the beginning to access that spot in the Dream Yard or whatever. Maybe they are needed to progress elsewhere but I can't remember/haven't gotten up to those stages yet).

Any help is greatly appreciated and I apologise for the very lengthy post! I just thought I should give as much detail as possible to tie up loose ends. Are the pokemon on my team okay or should I swap one or more out in exchange for different ones?

agreed with chandelure´s attacks, you should swap flame burst for shadow ball or another ghost(or dark) type move. But try that the moves have enough pp.
lol waffle
RP this was a year ago its okay

I'll keep that for you team its pretty decent just change a few movesets.

Archeops : (Make him hold sitrus berry cause when his health is below half his ability weakens it alot so this might just help you in many situations to regain your stats)
Remove dragon breath since you have a dragon pokemon and get him to learn either Focus blast or Hidden power fighting to eliminate rock ,steel and ice disadvantages .

Chanedelure :
Ok the way you want it then remove inferno and add energy ball to eliminate rock,ground,and water disadvantage .

Haxorus: (After evolving)
Dragon Claw(Reliable STAB)
Earthquake(Make use of moldBreaker)
RockSlide/BrickBreak (To eliminate ice disadvantage)

Serperior: Hold big root .
Change mega drain to giga drain at lv.44 .
Replace strength with -if you manage to get ROCK hidden power then obviously that cause it eliminates all disadvantages except for poison otherwise a move of your choice . I recommend trying to get the hidden rock power.

Simipour :
Get him ice beam rather than cut just to cover his grass weakness .
And remove either bite or scald for work up .

Replace acid armor for hail to make use of its ability and regain HP.
If you can then try replacing mirror coat for water pulse to eliminate rock and fire .
You can teach him by breeding him with another pokemon of its egg group that has water pulse .

Ok atleast tell whats wrong in this for the down votes??

Sorry for my late reply! I just want to say thank you so much for taking the time to give me pointers on my team. I followed your advice with some of them (I didn't feel like going through breeding to teach Vanilluxe water pulse but it turned out I didn't need it anyway). I swept through the Elite Four on the first try (after I evolved my Fraxure). :) Good advice!

As for why you got down votes, I'm not actually sure who did that... I logged on tonight to post a reply to you and only just noticed that myself. :( I don't think there was anything wrong with your comment so I'm a bit confused.
In HG/SS you can`t go back in but I don`t know about other games
