Is Hoothoot a good pokemon?

#1sheisenviousPosted 7/29/2009 7:10:20 AM
I recently bought Poke Platinum, so I'm still iffy about my team.
I have an Empoleon, Kirlia, Budew (evolve please T_T), Ponyta, Jolteon, and... Hoothoot. (If you can tell, I'm trying to get at least one water, fire, grass, electric, psychic, etc. pokemon.)
I need a pokemon that can do the HM Fly and since I already had Hoothoot... --
SO WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS-- IS HOOTHOOT A GOOD POKEMON?
And is my team kinda good? XD *I have 4 badges so far*
I'm also wondering if a ground/rock type pokemon is necessary...and if so, which pokemon is the best.
Also...where should I train my Kirlia, Jolteon, and Hoothoot (if I keep him)?

SORRY FOR THE MANY QUESTIONS. LOL.

The Starly family is better.

For a pokemon to use fly, there are 3 main choices in platinum

The Zubat, Golbat and Crobat Family
The Starly, Staravia and Staraptor Family
The HootHoot and Noctowl Family


They all have their own stengths and weaknesses. The Starly one is used the most, then i think it is the Zubat family next.
If you want to use the Hoothoot family, go ahead. I think it'll make a great addition to any in game team

Just look at the base stats, for starters. Staraptor's ability is much better, and it learns much better attacks.
