Make Diantha's Team Better

#1PsyninPosted 8/13/2014 8:41:13 AM
So a lot of people hated the massive holes, randomness, and weaknesses in Diantha's team. Does anybody have ideas for how it could have been better?

Post your ideas! The only rules are that the Pokemon have to be in the Kalos Dex and her final member has to be Mega Gardevoir.

Original Team:

Hawlucha Lv 64
Tyrantrum Lv 65
Aurorus Lv 65
Gourgeist Lv 65
Goodra Lv 66
Mega Gardevoir Lv 68

But replace with? Just realized she uses all Kalos native Pokemon haha. Guess that restricts things a bit...

Kalos native? As in they're in the dex? Or they're new mons? The former you already pointed out and the latter isn't true. Only new thing with gardevoir there is the item.

Gardevoir is the exception.

I'm inclined to let her keep Goodra and Gourgeist just because they aren't anyone else's signature Pokemon. That leaves an ice bias that can be patched up with a water type... shame Milotic isn't in the Kalos dex.

Considering she has no type specialty and several of the other good Gen VI pokemon exist in the E4 already, there aren't many options

I think a Vivillon would suit her but its not a very good pokemon in general, unless this thing is speed-invested and the idea is to catch the player off guard with compoundeyes sleep powder.

Maybe one of the fully evolved starters?

Florges?

I'm going to stick with kalos dex. Anyway, switch out gourgeist for chandelure. Helps with ice and steel mons, both of which are general threats to her team.

Conkeldurr Lv 75
Tyranitar Lv 75
Mamoswine Lv 75
Gengar Lv 75
Garchomp Lv 75
Mega Gardevoir Lv 80 (with Quiver Dance)

Minimum level scaling set so her Pokemon are at the very most 5 levels below the highest level Pokemon in your party.

Lack of Kalos Pokemon is because the E4 already have the good ones (Talonflame, Klefki, Aegislash).

Diantha doesn't HAVE to be the same as the E4 and force Kalos Pokemon on her team "just cause".
