This is a global catch-all question to have one central in-game question for each game (or pair of games) in a manner similar to the moveset questions

  • 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 Conkeldurr is not the best idea.
  • Items, EVs, and Natures are not required.
  • Please provide ample explanation.
  • No animated images (they slow down the page). Static sprites only, thanks.

how can flygon learn outrage
@lluvpokemon4022                                 by move tutor in B2-W2
I won the game with Haxorus, Samurott, Arcanine, Braviary, Lucario and Zoroark.
I caught every single Legendary, filled up the Pokédex, went to Nature Preserve and caught Shiny Haxorus.

I deleted my save file and now I am starting a new game with Flygon, Camerupt/Chandelure, Azumarill, keeping my Braviary, Serperior and Magnezone. Is this team ok?
how do i teach flygon earthquake

This is for WHITE 2 ONLY! But, it helped me out a WHOLE lot.

Swampert @ Bright Powder

Trait : Torrent

Hydro Cannon

Earthquake

Strength

Hammer Arm

Swampert will be the Powerhouse of the team. Earthquake for STAB, as well as hydro cannon. Hammer Arm for those pesky Dark types. Strength for moving Boulders. Bright Powder for chance for a free attack.

Metagross @ Power Anklet

Trait : Clear Body

Agility

Hammer Arm

Zen Headbutt

Meteor Mash

This is a bulky slow Pokemon, so Agility will help out a whole lot before using Hammer Arm.
Zen Headbutt for STAB, and that 30 % chance of Flinching. Meteor Mash for that good ol' STAB, and chance for attack being raised by 1 stage.

Mamoswine @ Persim Berry

Trait : Oblivious

Blizzard

Ancient Power

Earthquake

Thrash

Mamoswine is a great choice up against Iris in the Elite 4. Blizzard for STAB, also with Earthquake. Ancient Power for evolving Piloswine. Thrash because it's really strong, and we put that Persim Berry to use.

Unfezant @ Scope Lens

Trait : Super Luck

Fly

Night Slash

Air Cutter

Facade

Unfezant is a great Gen 5 flying type. Fly for STAB, and getting places faster. Air Cutter for STAB, and High Critical Hit ratio. Night Slash for High Critical Hit ratio. Facade for STAB.

Alakazam @ Twisted Spoon

Trait : Inner Focus

Psychic

Charge Beam

Energy Ball

Recover

Alakazam. One of my personal favorites. Psychic for STAB. Charge Beam for Raising Special Attack. Energy Ball for Coverage. Recover for healing.Mold

Throh @ Black Belt (Seems Logical, right?)

Trait : Mold Breaker

Reversal

Payback

Rock Tomb

Earthquake

Throh is a bulky Pokemon on this team. Reversal for STAB, great damage when HP is low, and boosted attack with Black Belt. Earthquake to put that Mold Breaker Ability to use. Rock Tomb for the darn flyers. Payback for the Psychic types.

Hope it Helps! :)

Chandelure @ Spell Tag
Moves: Shadow Ball, Energy Ball, Psychic, Flamethrower

A special attacking beast.

Jellicent @ Mystic Water
Moves: Hex, Toxic, Scald/Surf, Recover

Your water type companion. This tank of a Pokemon is unstoppable with this move set. Just sayin.

Moves: Dark Pulse, Dragon Pulse, Tri Attack, Flamethrower

Not available until late in the game, but well worth the wait.

Lucario @ Shell Bell
Moves: Aura Sphere, Psychic, Flash Cannon, Dark Pulse

Pretty much replaces your starter early on in the game.

Eelektross @ N/A
Moves: Thunder Punch, Acrobatics, Crunch, Dragon Claw

Hard to find, but a great addition to your team.

Gigalith @ Rocky Helmet
Moves: Earthquake, Stone Edge, Strength, Stealth Rock

Hope this helps :)

Serperior,Arcanine,Ampharos,Vaporeon,Crobat and Hydregion/Haxorus

Serperior @ Miracle Seed
Nature: Adamant,Jolly Or any neutral nature
Found: Starter Pokemon
Moves:
-Coil
-leaf Blade
-Aerial Ace
-Return
The Snivy line has a limited movepull but it can still work well. Coil is a great move to boost Speed,Defence and Attack, Since Serperior has a low attack this move is great because on the next turn you will most likely be faster (Serperior has a base 113 speed on top of coil that's insane speed) therefore you could use any of it's other moves. Leaf Blade is STAB and has a good base of 90 power which is powered up with Serperior's item, the miracle seed. Aerial Ace is coverage for Bug types as well as pesky Fighting or Grass types, its also good because this move never misses. Return will do a lot of damage since you and your Serperior will have a good friendship level.

Arcanine @ Anything you want
Nature: Anything except Modest,Timid,Adamant or Jolly
Found: Virbank Complex
Evolves using: Fire Stone
Moves:
-Extreme Speed
-Flamethrower
-Crunch
-Wild Charge
A great addition to any team.Extreme Speed is a priority move which has a good base power of 80. You will need to evolve Growlithe at level 39, if you can't then you will need to trade a heart scale with the person at the stand which is located to the south west of the Pokemon World tournament.Flamethrower is STAB and is a good 90 base power, Arcanine can be mixed so I decided to put Flamethrower instead of Flare Blitz. Crunch is a good move to defeat annoying psychic and Ghost Pokemon. Wild Charge is coverage for water types which is one of Arcanine's weaknesses.

Ampharos @ Leftovers
Nature: Modest,Anything that boosts Special Attack or A neutral nature
Found: Floccesy Ranch
Moves:
-Thunderbolt
-Signal Beam
-Power Gem
-thunder Wave
I always get Ampharos on my team in nearly every game,it's such a reliable team member. Thunderbolt is a STAB move which is already at 90 base power.Signal Beam is a good coverage move for pesky Dark,Psychic and Grass type Pokemon.Power Gem is coverage for Flying,Fire,Ice and Bug Pokemon. Thunder Wave is good for catching Pokemon as well as slowing down Pokemon.

Vaporeon @ Ice Gem
Nature: Modest,Anything that boosts Special Attack or A neutral nature
Found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cICFW6b9MnA
Evolves Using: Water Stone
Moves:
-Ice Beam
-Surf
-Shadow Ball
-Hyper Beam
Vaporeon is a great Pokemon. 110 Special attack on top of 130 HP. Ice Beam is coverage for Grass and can help against the champion and is powered up from the Ice gem. Surf is a good STAB move and is compulsory to progress during the game.Shadow Ball is coverage is for Psychic and Ghost types. Hyper beam is just a great move at 150 power.

Crobat @ Shell Bell
Nature: Adamant/Jolly/Neutral Nature
Found:Castelia Sewers
Evolves: Max Happiness
Moves:
-Fly
-Cross Poison
-X Scissor
-Steel Wing
Crobat is great. Fly is STAB and needed in-game. Cross Poison is STAB. X scissor is coverage for psychic types and is a good base power move. Steel Wing is coverage for Rock types and Ice types.

Hydregion/Haxorus @ Expert Belt
Nature Hydregion: Modest,Timid or Neutral Nature
Nature Haxorus: Adamant,Jolly or Neutral Nature
Haxorus Location: Mistralton Cave
Hydregion Location: Victory Road
Moves:
-Dragon Pulse/Dragon Claw
-Flamethrower/Dragon Dance
-Dark Pulse/Earthquake
-Flash Cannon/Brick Break

*The ones to the left are Hydregion's moves and on the right is Haxorus' moves

Hydregion:
An exceptional Pokemon however he is found extremely late in the game and evolves at level 64. This is very late but Hydregion's stats are very balanced. Dragon Pulse is STAB and is 85 base power,also it's coverage and helps against the champion. Flamethrower is coverage against Ice types and beats Bug,Steel and Grass Pokemon.Dark Pulse is STAB and helps against 2 elite 4 members.Flash Cannon is coverage.

Haxorus:
A beastly Pokemon. Haxorus is found earlier than Hydregion and evolves at level 48. It's stats mainly focus on attack and Speed. Dragon Dance is a good set up to boost that already sky high attack of 147. Dragon Claw is the best Dragon move IMO,It's STAB and helps against the Champion. Earthquake because ITS EARTHQUAKE. Brick Break is coverage for Ice types and has a decent power of 75.

Team Preview: Emboar, Lucario, Flygon, Galvantula, Starmie, Tangrowth

Emboar (Ganon) @ Shell Bell
Trait: Blaze
Nature: Adamant/Impish

  • Flare Blitz/Fire Punch
  • Brick Break
  • Wild Charge/Thunder Punch
  • Earthquake

Emboar has good HP and offensive stats meaning it has good Tanking and Sweeping capabilities and it also has a vast moveset. Flare Blitz does a lot of damage and a good burn chance but has a lot of recoil damage. Brick Break is a good Fighting move which breaks Screens which is very handy however you could substitute this move for Superpower or Hammer Arm but those moves both have drawbacks. And finally Earthquake and Wild Charge are for coverage. Fire Punch and Thunder Punch are for if you don't like recoil damage.



Lucario (Ryu) @ Expert Belt
Trait: Inner Focus/Steadfast
Nature: Adamant/Jolly

  • Swords Dance
  • Close Combat
  • Ice Punch
  • Extreme Speed

Lucario is arguably one of the best Fighting types even without Mega Evolution, instead of being Bulky and Physically offensive, Lucario is all out Attack, both Physical and Special, and high Speeds. How to use: Swords Dance, Win. Swords Dance makes Lucario a monster and with STAB Close Combat and coverage Ice Punch and priority Extreme Speed, he is ready to sweep any time.



Flygon (Lanayru) @ Muscle Band
Trait: Levitate
Nature: Jolly/Adamant

  • Outrage/Dragon Claw
  • Earthquake
  • Rock Slide
  • Fly

Flygon is a very versatile Pokémon with all-around good stats and a good movepool. Outrage deals huge damage but you are locked into it for 2 to 3 turns and become confused afterwards whereas Dragon Claw is weaker but less of a gamble. Earthquake = Good Move. Rock Slide covers its 4x weakness to Ice and Fly is very useful in and outside of battle.



Galvantula (Skulltula) @ Wide Lens
Trait: Compoundeyes
Nature: Modest/Timid

  • Thunder
  • Bug Buzz
  • Energy Ball/Giga Drain
  • Volt Switch/Sucker Punch

One of my favourite Pokémon ever, my 2nd non-cheating level 100, however Galvantula is quite fragile but its Special Attack and Speed make up for this. Thunder gains a lot of accuracy from the Wide Lens and Compoundeyes with a potential Paralysis chance. Bug buzz is also STAB and breaks Substitute. Energy Ball is for coverage and Giga Drain recovers good HP but is slightly weaker than Energy Ball. Volt Switch does good damage and allows Galvantula a free hit, whereas Sucker Punch is also for coverage but is hindered by low PP, Galvantula's sort of low attack and its gimmick.



Starmie (Pulsar) @ Life Orb
Trait: Natural Cure
Nature: Timid/Modest

  • Surf
  • Ice Beam
  • Psychic
  • Recover

Starmie has great stats, a vast movepool and a great typing, probably the best Water type ingame. Surf is needed for progress and is overall a great move. Psychic is also a great move and gains STAB. Ice Beam is for coverage and Recover keeps Starmie alive and also makes up for the damage lost from the Life Orb.



Tangrowth (Noodles) @ Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
Nature: Quiet/Brave

  • Sleep Powder
  • Giga Drain
  • Earthquake
  • Rock Slide

This Pokémon is a tank but also has good offensive capabilities. Sleep Powder is very useful and no Sleep Clause allows spam which is cheap and hilarious ;). Giga Drain along with Lefties keep this Pokemon full of health and Earthquake and Rock Slide covers all of Tangrowth's weaknesses. Regenerator is hard to get as you must get Tangela from a Hidden Grotto which can be stressful but it is worth it.


BTW if you want to use either Serperior or Samurott you can swap Tangrowth or Starmie for them and add Arcanine.

Samurott:
Megahorn/ X-scissor
Surf
Ice beam/ Blizzard
Waterfall

Samurott is a beast. With access to megahorn and x scissor he can take out ghetsis's hydreigon with ease. Ice beam or blizzard for coverage and surf and waterfall for STAB.

Lucario:
Close Combat
Aura Sphere
Dark Pulse
Psychic

Lucario Is awesome. Close Combat and Aura Sphere for STAB and dark pulse and psychic for coverage.

Arcanine:
Outrage
Extremespeed
Flare blitz
Flamethrower

Outrage for all out power and to deal with Drayden and Iris, Extremespeed for priority and Flare Blitz and Flamethrower for STAB.

![][4]

Crobat:
Confuse Ray
Cross Poison
Fly
X-Scissor/ Acrobatics

Crobat is very fast so it can get a confuse Ray of with without any trouble, cross poison and fly for STAB and x-scissor or acrobatics for extra damage.

![][5]

Roserade:
Energy Ball
Sludge Bomb
Giga Drain
Venoshock

Roserade is not meant to handle lots of types but it's massive special attack has earned a spot on this team. Energy Ball and Sludge Bomb for STAB and Giga drain for regaining healt. Venoshock is so you can deal extra damage if you get the poison of with sludge bomb.

Team Overview :

SamurottLeavannyArcanine
FlygonWeavileMetagross


Samurott @ Mystic Water
Type : Water
Ability : Torrent

Samurott

  • Hydro Cannon
  • Surf
  • Ice Beam
  • Megahorn

I like Samurott because of its decent movepool and that it can learn Megahorn which can be really a big threat to Grimsley and Caitlin. He will be your surfer and starter. Surf is STAB and HM for surfing around Unova. Hydro Cannon is Superpowerful STAB that may KO everything in Samurott's way and only used for power. Unfortunately Hydro Cannon is a recharge move. Megahorn is coverage and a move to be used against the elite 4. Ice Beam is also coverage and can threaten the dragons of Iris.


Leavanny @ Muscle Band
Type : Grass / Bug
Ability : Swarm

Leavanny

  • Swords Dance
  • False Swipe
  • Leaf Blade
  • X Scissor

Leavanny has good Atk stats and can learn Swords Dance to make its moves KO'ing which is why is has a Physical moveset. I find False Swipe useful for catching Wild Pokemon and even Legendaries. Leaf Blade and X Scissor are nice physical STABs. With a boost of Swords Dance and the 10% boost of Muscle Band, Leavanny's moves would be more deadly. You can rely on her to take on Grimsley and Caitlin


Arcanine @ Life Orb
Type : Fire
Ability : Flash Fire

Arcanine

  • Flare Blitz
  • Wild Charge
  • Crunch
  • Outrage

Arcanine has always been one of my favourites and now I'm using it now in Black 2. He will be your Recoil Damage Taker. He has high attack which is why he has a physical moveset. Flare Blitz is STAB, but leaves Arcanine with recoil damage and its Arcanine's main move. Crunch is coverage and a move to be used against Shauntal and Caitlin. Wild Charge is coverage and covers Arcanine's Water type weakness. Outrage is a powerful dragon move that threatens the dragons of Iris, but unfortunately leaves Arcanine confused after a few turns. With Arcanine holding life orb, he will do 30% more damage, but recoil is 10% HP. Which is why I call Arcanine your Recoil Damage Taker.


Flygon @ Dragon Gem
Type : Dragon / Ground
Ability : Levitate

Flygon

  • Fly
  • Outrage
  • Earthquake
  • Crunch

Flygon will be your flyer and your dragon to counter Iris' Dragons. It has been a favourite and a popular Pokemon ever since Gen 3 came out and he got me pass Emerald. Earthquake and Outrage are powerful STABs. Crunch is coverage and a move to be used against the elite 4. Fly is coverage, HM for flying around Unova, and also a move for Marshal. Dragon Gem will help Flygon's Outrage one hit KO Iris' Dragons.


Weavile @ Never-Melt Ice
Type : Dark / Ice
Ability : Pressure

Weavile

  • Ice Punch
  • Night Slash
  • Aerial Ace
  • Dig

Weavile has really high attack and with some physical coverage moves, he can really cover all of his weaknesses. Ice Punch and Night Slash are nice STABs. Dig is good coverage that covers Weavile's Rock, Steel, Fire type weaknesses while Aerial Ace is also good coverage that covers Weavile's Fighting and Bug type weaknesses. Him and Flygon will defeat most of Iris' Dragons. He will be also a big threat to Caitlin and Shauntal.


Metagross @ Expert Belt
Type : Psychic / Steel
Ability : Clear Body

Metagross

  • Meteor Mash
  • Zen-Headbutt
  • Hammer Arm
  • Rock Slide

This guy is a totally beast. With Clear Body, it's stats will not be lowered, making it even more a beast. He will help you take on Marshal and take damage for your team while battling Iris. He has high attack making its moves KO'ing. That's why I gave him a physical moveset. Meteor Mash and Zen-Headbutt are STABs. Hammer Arm and Rock Slide are coverages that covers Metagross' Fire and Dark type weaknesses.


Good luck.

Team Overview :

SerperiorArcanineStarmie
FlygonHeracrossWeavile


Serperior @ Miracle Seed
Type : Grass
Ability : Overgrow

Serperior

  • Coil
  • Leaf Blade
  • Return
  • Aqua Tail

I call Serperior your tailer. This moveset is probably the best one on this post. She will be your very loyal starter, which is why it has return. Coil is to boost the power of Leaf Blade, Aqua Tail, and Return, making them more powerful. Leaf Blade is good physical STAB, while Aqua Tail is also physical coverage that covers Serperior's Fire type weakness. She will be your reliable starter which helps you take on many strong opponent.


Arcanine @ Life Orb
Type : Fire
Ability : Flash Fire

Arcanine

  • Flare Blitz
  • Wild Charge
  • Outrage
  • Crunch

Arcanine has high attack and every of its moves would one hit KO with the help of Life Orb, unfortunately needing recoil damage. Flare Blitz and Wild Charge are recoil moves. Flare Blitz is Arcanine's main STAB move and Wild Charge is coverage that covers Arcanine's water type weakness. Crunch is also coverage that is useful for Shauntal and Caitlin. Outrage is powerful dragon move that threatens the dragons of Iris, but leaves Arcanine confused at the end. He will take recoil damage for you.


Starmie @ Expert Belt
Type : Water / Psychic
Ability : Natural Cure

Starmie

  • Surf
  • Ice Beam
  • Psychic
  • Thunderbolt

Starmie has nice Sp.Atk and great movepool which makes it a good Pokemon to use. You can rely on it to surf around Unova and to take on Marshal. Surf and Psychic are useful STABs. Ice Beam is to threaten Iris. Thunderbolt is useful coverage.


Flygon @ Dragon Gem
Type : Dragon / Ground
Ability : Levitate

Flygon

  • Outrage
  • Earthquake
  • Fly
  • Crunch

Flygon will be your flyer. As a reliable dragon, he will help you counter against most of the dragons of Iris. Outrage is powerful STAB but unfortunately leaves Flygon confused at the end. Fly is coverage, HM for flying around and a good move to be used against Marshal. Crunch is useful for the elite 4 and also coverage. Earthquake is a powerful and useful STAB.
Flygon will not disappoint you in battles.


Heracross @ Muscle Band
Type : Bug / Fighting
Ability : Guts

Heracross

  • Night Slash
  • Close Combat
  • Megahorn
  • Swords Dance

Heracross' great typing is great for the elite 4. He will be a large threat to Grimsley and Caitlin. His great attack plus a Swords Dance boost can one hit KO. Megahorn is powerful STAB, so does Close Combat. Night Slash is Coverage and a move to be used against Shauntal. You can take on the elite 4 with him, he will not disappoint you.


Weavile @ Never-Melt Ice
Type : Dark / Ice
Ability : Pressure

Weavile

  • Night Slash
  • Ice Shard
  • Aerial Ace
  • Dig

Weavile has great attack and access to Ice Shard. Ice Shard is priority move that hits first but has low attack. But the fact that it's STAB and that Weavile has high attack allows Weavile to overcome that. Aerial Ace and Dig are nice physical coverages that covers all of Weavile's weaknesses.


Good Luck.

I went through the game and am at the E4 currently, this team has done really well after a bit of grinding on audino.
THIS IS BEFORE THE POST GAME, SOME POKEMON DO NOT HAVE MOVES THAT WOULD OTHERWISE BE ON HERE.

Serperior @ Miracle Seed
Ability: Overgrow
Nature: Naughty

  • Leaf Blade
  • Coil
  • Giga Drain
  • Leech seed

This is the sweeper of the team. You'll only ever really need Leaf Blade because of its fantastic attack and speed, but the other options are nice to have for HP and set up. Leaf Blade and Giga Drain are STAB, Leech Seed is if you need a bit of extra health or widdle down an enemy, and coil is for setting up. Tangrowth is a good substitute for this if you want to ditch your starter.

Lucario @ Life Orb
Ability: Inner Focus
Nature: Naive

  • Close Combat
  • Aura Sphere
  • Ice Punch
  • Swords Dance/Dragon Pulse

Lucario is a fan favorite and for good reason. It's great! Aura Sphere is a STAB special move that can save you if in need of hitting an accuracy spammer. Close Combat is STAB and can hit something really *** hard. Ice punch is for those damn dragons you'll see often thrown around in the game and the ground types that'll hit you with that nasty earthquake. Swords Dance is for set up, but if you chose dragon pulse then it's essentially a combination of Ice Punch and Aura Sphere. Mienshao is a good substitute if you're willing to try and find it.

Arcanine @ Expert Belt
Ability: Intimidate
Nature: Adamant

  • Outrage
  • Crunch
  • Flamethrower
  • Strength/Dig

The second sweeper of our team, and also the VERY reliable fire type. I didn't use this little guy too much, but he's very useful. Flamethrower is STAB and hits very hard, especially on a special EV arcanine. Crunch is for good power and some coverage, Dig is used for coverage, Strength is for utillity and is decently powered, and outrage is for those pesky dragons. Magmortar and Volcarona are good substitutes if you want more coverage or a dual type.

Flygon @ Dragon Plate/Dragon Fang
Ability: Levitate
Nature: Quiet

  • Rock Slide
  • Earthpower
  • Dragon Claw
  • Fly

The slow, bulky, and powerful as hell flyer and dragon type. As well as ground type. This is one of my favorite Pokemon. It's got great power, gets good typing, a great ability, and some good moves. Dragon Claw and Earthpower are STAB and hit REALLY hard. Rock slide is coverage, and fly is for utillity. Haxorus is a good substitute if you want to use it as well, just make sure you have a flying type.

Reuniclus @ TwistedSpoon
Ability: Magic Guard
Nature: Bashful

  • Psychic
  • Recover
  • Hidden Power (Electric)
  • Shadow Ball

This thing takes ASS loads of abuse and chucks it right back at you like the Heavy from TF2. Psychic is great STAB, Shadow ball gives you decent coverage, recover is for stalling and recovering HP, and Hidden Power is for coverage. Electric came very handy for me. Espeon is a good substitute if you want something with better speed.

Jellicent (Male)
Ability: Cursed Body
Nature: Quirky

  • Shadow Ball
  • Surf
  • Hydro Pump
  • Ice Beam

I love Jellicent. Not just because when I first saw it I thought it was literally the guy from Monopoly, but because it's so great. Ghost/Water is a fantastic type giving it great coverage power. Hydro Pump and Shadow Ball are for STAB, and surf is for utillity and also STAB. Ice Beam is for coverage and those god damn dragons. This is one powerful little Pokemon. Vaporeon and Lapras are also good substitutes for this if you aren't willing to use it for whatever reasons.

Team Overview :

EmboarMagnezoneFlygon
SwannaBeheeyemWeavile

Note : This team is for Black 2


Emboar @ Leftovers
Type : Fire / Fighting
Ability : Blaze

Emboar

  • Flare Blitz
  • Stone Edge
  • Hammer Arm
  • Wild Charge

Emboar will be your starter. He will help you take on Grimsley and many strong opponents as a physical attacker. 2 of his moves require recoil damage, which is why he is holding Leftovers. Flare Blitz is high power STAB that require recoil damage. If you want a move that don't require recoil damage, Fire Punch is a also a choice. Stone Edge and Wild Charge are nice coverage that covers some of Emboar's weakness. Wild Charge is recoil move. If you don't like Wild Charge, you can choose Thunder Punch.


Magnezone @ Expert Belt
Type : Electric / Steel
Ability : Sturdy

Magnezone

  • Thunderbolt
  • Flash Cannon
  • Thunder Wave
  • Signal Beam

I think you can envolve Magneton in Chargestone Cave. You can rely on him to defeat the second Gym Leader. Thunderbolt and Flash Cannon are great STABs. Thunder Wave is useful for catching wild Pokemon and even Legendaries. Signal Beam is nice coverage and also a move for the elite 4. He wI'll take damage for your team. The boost of Muscle Band during Super effective hits makes Magnezone's moves more deadly.


Flygon @ Dragon Gem
Type : Dragon / Ground
Ability : Levitate

Flygon

  • Outrage
  • Earthquake
  • Crunch
  • Stone Edge

Flygon will work together with Weavile to destroy Iris. Outrage is powerful dragon STAB that leaves the user confused after a few turns. The reason why I have Dragon Gem is because I want Outrage to one-hit KO so that Flygon can switch out after that. Earthquake is powerful STAB and Stone Edge is powerful coverage that covers those annoying Ice Pokemon. Crunch is a move for the elite 4.


Swanna @ Mystic Water
Type : Flying / Water
Ability : Keen Eye

Swanna

  • Surf
  • Fly
  • Brave Bird
  • Ice Beam

Swanna will be your early and loyal flyer and surfer. Surf is STAB and with the nice boost of Mystic Water, Surf will be more powerful. Fly is also STAB and a needed HM. Brave Bird is only used for more power. If you don't like Brave Bird, you can replace it with roost which is for recovery. Ice Beam is coverage and a move to threaten the dragons of Iris. She will be very helpful in your journey.


Beheeyem @ Twisted Spoon
Type : Psychic
Ability : Synchronize

Beheeyem

  • Psychic
  • Dark Pulse
  • Energy Ball
  • Calm Mind

Beheeyem will be your key to defeating Marshal. He has great Sp. Attack so a special moveset would be great. Psychic is nice STAB. Energy Ball is coverage. Dark Pulse is also coverage and also a move for the elite 4. Calm Mind is to make the moves of Beheeyem more powerful.


Weavile @ Life Orb
Type : Dark / Ice
Ability : Pressure

Weavile

  • Ice Punch
  • Night Slash
  • Dig
  • Aerial Ace

Weavile's great typing is best for the elite 4. He will defeat Iris, Shauntal, Caitlin. Ice Punch and Night Slash are physical STABs. Dig and Aerial Ace covered all of Weavile's weakness making him more a beast and more powerful.


Good Luck.

This team will be for Emboar, because I will use him during my next playthrough.



Emboar @ Charcoal
Ability: Blaze
- Flare Blitz (LV62)/Flamethrower (LV43)
- Hammer Arm (Move Relearner)
- Gyro Ball (TM74)
- Scald (TM55)

Emboar will be the starter for this playthrough. As the only dual-typed starter in Unova, he is the only way to get 12 unique types on one team. If you level him up to 17, he gets Arm Thrust as a Pignite, which makes Cheren's gym a cakewalk. He annihilates Burgh and does a good number on Grimsley, as well. Flare Blitz is the recommended STAB Fire move, as it takes advantage of Emboar's massive physical attack stat, but Flamethrower is another option. Hammer Arm is his best Fighting-type STAB move, with 100 power, but it does lower his speed, so Gyro Ball becomes a great coverage option if Hammer Arm has been abused. Scald covers his weakness to Ground- and Rock-types.

Location: Starter Pokemon
Charcoal: Castelia City
Move Relearner: Driftveil City PWT
TM74: Nimbasa City PokeMart (10,000 PokeDollars)
TM55: Humilau City (Prize for defeating Marlon)



Magnezone @ Leftovers
Ability: Sturdy
- Thunderbolt (TM24)
- Flash Cannon (LV39)
- Tri-Attack (Move Relearner as Magneton)
- Thunder Wave (LV15)

Magnezone is the second teambuilder, as he completely walls Roxie, and kills the majority of Skyla's and Marlon's gyms. He has a plethora of resistances, but make sure you keep him away from Clay's gym. Thunderbolt and Flash Cannon are great Special Attacking STAB moves. Tri-Attack is the only coverage move he gets, and you need to take him to a move relearner before he evolves into Magnezone. Thunder Wave is one of the easiest way to catch Pokemon, and he gets it early on at LV15. It also serves as a form of speed control.

Location: Virbank Complex
Leftovers: Castelia Sewers
Move Relearner: Driftveil City PWT



Sigilyph @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Magic Guard
- Air Slash (LV41)
- Psychic (LV44/TM29)
- Roost (Move Tutor C)
- Fly (HM02)

Now for the Flying-type: Sigilyph. The first of two Pokemon to be found in or in front of the Desert Resort, Sigilyph is ridiculously underrated. He's got an SpA stat of 103, and does wonders against Marshal in the Elite 4. Air Slash and Psychic are 2 powerful STAB moves to compliment his Special Attack stat, and Roost is for HP recovery. Fly is for flying around Unova.

Location: Desert Resort
Rocky Helmet: Relic Passage
TM29: Route 13
Move Tutor C: Humilau City (6 Yellow Shards)
HM02: Route 5



Flygon @ Dragon Fang
Ability: Levitate
- Dig (LV29)
- Dragon Claw (LV55)
- Rock Slide (LV25)
- Signal Beam (Move Tutor A)

Flygon is the second member of the team obtained in the Desert Resort, and will be your Dragon-/Ice-type for the run. As a Trapich, he will destroy Elesa, and he will make Clay much easier than he was before as a Vibrava, if you teach him Ice Punch before hand for 10 Red Shards. He'll also be a big help in the fights with Drayden and Iris. Dig and Dragon Claw will be the primary STAB moves on Flygon, because Draco Meteor does only a little damage after the first couple of uses, and Flygon has a higher Attack stat than Special Attack. Rock Slide is a coverage move, as is Signal Beam.

Obtained: Desert Resort
Dragon Fang: Victory Road
Move Tutor A: Driftveil City (4 Red Shards)



Jellicent @ Shell Bell
Ability: Water Absorb
- Surf (HM03)
- Hex (LV45)
- Giga Drain (Move Tutor C)
- Will-O-Wisp (TM61)

Jellicent will be the fifth member of your team, obtainable as soon as you get Surf, at which point you can go back and get a Frillish in the water on Route 4. Jellicent is a bulky wall, and with the addition of Giga Drain, can take Marlon practically single-handedly. Hex and Will-O-Wisp make a devastating combo of STAB and status, and Surf is both an HM and a high-power special attack. Jellicent will help in the battle against Shauntal when you reach the Elite 4.

Obtained: Route 4
Shell Bell: Driftveil City
HM03: Route 6 (After defeating Clay)
Move Tutor C: Humilau City (10 Yellow Shards)
TM61: Celestial Tower



Drapion @ Razor Claw
Ability: Sniper
- Toxic (TM06)
- X-Scissor (TM81)
- Cross Poison (LV57)
- Night Slash (LV38)

Drapion has two more unique types for this team. He can hold his own against Caitlin, and does great against Shauntal, and does pretty well against Grimsley thanks to X-Scissor. Toxic will be the status move, and X-Scissor is good coverage, and STAB for Skorupi. Cross Poison and Night Slash are the primary STAB moves, and thanks to Razor Claw, are extremely likely to get critical hits. Sniper will boost the damage on any such hits, making Drapion a very interesting and helpful choice.

Location: Reversal Mountain
Razor Claw: Giant Chasm
TM06: Seaside Cave
TM81: Route 7
