    Id swap FireBlast for Flamethrower, for PP and accuracy.
    HP(Grass) instead of Solarbeam.

    Beauty Contest?
    No need for Fire Punch and Ice Punch. Close combat is a good STAB attack. Low on PP tho.
    Seems okay to me.
    Sludge Bomb for Earthquake, Leech seed for Protect.
    Really don't know about this, very little people run Pidgeots in their team.
    Seismic Toss for Double Edge. Wish for Sub. Psychic is okay I guess.

    Your team's pretty okay, just that a few of your pokemon are running low PP movesets, which can be risky.
    Anyways, props to you for the (only) UU team around here:].

    You don't really need to bother much on your strategy/movesets of your pokemon for Elite Four. Just have a few Sweepers in your team and you're set.

    How do I make HP a grass type?

    What would you suggest I put in instead?

    I picked Psychic becuase it counters fighting types.

    Yeah I get sick of OU and Ubers.

    HP(type) is predetermined at the moment you catch the pokemon. You can't change it. Say, save your game, catch a Vulpix, teach it the Hidden Power TM, use it on say, a water and a rock pokemon, if it returns Super Effective for both of em, you have got yourself a HP(Grass). It can be really tedious to get your Nature + HP type the way you want it, but it's very worth it.

    I'm pretty sure there's a formula for predetermining HP, but I don't really have the time to go understand it.

    Hmm, Earthquake's a natural choice, really no idea on the final spot. Sorry.

    Uggg...putting together a team with all the guys you want of the natures you want is a pain in the ass...not to mention time consuming.

    Well, if you're making a tournament team, Natures are pretty much important.
    Else for casuals, you just gotta make sure your Nature aint conflicting with ur Pokemon. Say a -sp attk Nature on Mewtwo.

    Well I've been breeding Tyrogue with the nature I want, but that nature get in the way of how I want him to evolve. The nature I want involves more to atk, but because of that his attack stat is higher so he wants to evolve into a Hitmonlee every time.

    If you have the cash, goto the department store and buy up the EV booster types you need to raise the value you need increased to offset the nature boost.
  14. Elecmon

    Elecmon New Member

    The only problem with that is most of the time those EV boost don't take effect untill a higher level. The first time I bred a Tyrogue with the correct nature I gave him Def EV boosters and his Def stat didn't go up, until after he evolved into a Hitmonlee.

    not permanent.
    i'm thinking of switching rampardos for snorlax cause i just like him better
    and spiritomb to i dunno what yet

    Getting 100 points into Def at lvl1 is going to make a difference, plus you can probably battle def EV pokes exclusivly until it reaches the evo level.

    In addition to the EV booster method, you can always pray that you get a low Atk IV and a high Def IV since those do kick in at low levels more than EVs do.

    Well, I'm not sure of it, but my teams is eventually to be like this:


    Why not more of DP-Pokemon? Well, feel free to kill me, but I think most of them are just as ugly as... the darkest night you can imagine ^^'' except for Luxray, Palkia, Dialga, Erekiburu (don't know its English name) and Lucario.

    Thus, Typhlosion is ever since my favorite (same with Lugia) and starting with Leaf Green/Fire Red I started training Articuno and just love it, too. The other ones on this team... well let's see. It's still one more week till D/P are gonna be released in Germany xD
