Yosuke/Yukiko/Kanji master race (assuming theyre still the best in golden like they were in vanilla) --- I don't care what you say, Generation II sucks. That's just my opinion, no matter how true it may be.
I say best party member is determined by what you want them for and totally opinon based. Besides, the best party member in my opinion is already guaranteed because we play as that character(Yu). --- "When life gives you lemons, go murder a clown"~Festus Krex PSN: coydog_30 GT: TyingDarkDragon
In the original, I used Yosuke, Yuki, Ted for a while until my final party was Yosuke, Yuki, Kanji.
I used that team again in NG+ and for my first run in P4G.
Now I'm using different people in my NG+ for P4G: Chie, Yuki, Yosuke for the first 3 dungeons now it's gonna be Ted, Kanji, Yukiko (swapping Chie in and out) and when Naoto comes in, I might just use a full female team for the rest of the playthru.
I think Yukiko, in general, is a more powerful healer, i.e. can heal AND deal decent damages, than Kuma. I swapped Naoto out for Chie (a little reluctantly I have to say but my Alice + Kaguya basically replace her ...)
Brosuke(Never leaves my party) Teddie(Now that I can use his human form he's more viable to me) Kanji and then Naoto once she's available --- Sazh - Racist caricature and worst FF character ever. Don't agree ? Your problem. I'd do anything to have a body like yours ! Except exercise... - Cleveland
