Hey, I need some help on how to make some effective teams.
I know how to EV train and I am about to start for this game. I would like to know what hotspots there are in Johto to EV train.
The main thing I would like to know is what a good pokemon team needs to consist of. Also how do you go about finding pokemon that work well together.
In my experience of EV training I have found that I usually train 3 pokemon teams consisting of a defensive physical lead/sweeper, a special sweeper and a bulky recovering sweeper. For example a Swampert, Infernape and Latias was my most effective team. I made 3 pokemon teams for the battle tower but have never made a 100 streak.
So back on topic what advice can you give me on how to create effective 6 pokemon teams? --- Platinum FC: 4254-4317-5960 (Thomas) Soul SIlver FC: 3266-7434-2717 (Thomas)
It gives you an overview of what you're weak/resistant too. After you input your pokes you realize where you have some major weaknesses (for example, you may not have realized that you have 3 pokes super effective against one type). Those are the main things you want to avoid imo. --- PSN: mrbojingles
for teambuilding, if it's in-game, it doesn't matter, just use whatever you want. competitively, lurk around smogon.com and learn more about the current metagame, then try to develop a team you think can stand up to the current threats. --- Trane
I am in-game atm but would like to EV train now because I love making the game last a long time. I have already played 80+ hours and haven't even bet Jasmine yet. My 3 pokemon atm are Feraligatr, Togetic and Espeon each at lv55.
I was also wondering if these pokemon could work well together. Feraligatr Togekiss Espeon Scizor Kingdra (suggestions please) --- Platinum FC: 4254-4317-5960 (Thomas) Soul SIlver FC: 3266-7434-2717 (Thomas)
Sweet. So would these pokemon be able to work well together? Feraligatr Togekiss Espeon Scizor Kingdra Mamoswine
I was thinking that Scizor would be my lead with bullet punch, u-turn, roost and swords dance. That should be an alright start but without a Mamoswine for stealth rock coverage the team would be a little lackluster. Feraligatr and Kingdra will be physical/special respectively so I can maintain warterfall and surf in-game. I was thinking of making my Espeon a speedy baton passer for kingdra or togekiss with Kingdra being the sweeper while togekiss employs the status+flinch tactic.
If not I can always train them to be sweepers and find a good team for them post elite four. --- Platinum FC: 4254-4317-5960 (Thomas) Soul SIlver FC: 3266-7434-2717 (Thomas)
