    Version 1.40 - 07/03/2009
    Yeah, yeah, it's been a while. A lack of time and motivation means that this 
    thing hasn't been updated in a long time. The backlog of emails I have about 
    this guide has gotten ridiculous though, so I feel inspired to reduce it 
    somewhat.
    - Updated the link to the Smogon Battle Tower thread, which contains a lot of 
    different, very successful teams
    - Was reminded that your opponents in the battle tower do occasionally switch 
    out their Pokemon
    - Added new examples of successful teams
    - Decided that a section dedicated to beating Palmer the second time was 
    pointless. Although beating him the first time then resetting your streak has 
    its uses, aiming to just beat him the second time carries no benefits. If you 
    struggle to beat him the second time, you'll struggle to clear 100 wins. If you 
    still want a way to beat him the second time, look under section 9.0, examples 
    of teams that have cleared 100 wins.
    - Changed section 8.30 from "Sturdy ability" to a more general section about 
    dealing with OHKO moves, as I was getting emails about substitute and focus 
    sash as other ways of dealing with them.
    - Added a few random Pokemon to your partner trainers in the Multi Battle room
    
    Version 1.13 - 12/09/07
    - Added a new method to beat Palmer in the second fight
    - Added a new team for the Battle Tower
    - Fixed a few minor mistakes
    
    Version 1.10 - 11/09/07
    - Added a "title" of sorts, and put my contact info at the beginning, as well 
    as the end of the guide
    - Changed the formatting and the layout
    - Added Machamp as an option to counter Double Team
    - Added Lock-On/Mind Reader as an option to counter Double Team
    - Added a new method to beat Palmer
    - Added a new team for the Battle Tower
    
    Version 1.02 - 29/07/07
    - Fixed some Spelling
    
    Version 1.01 - 26/07/07
    - Fixed some Spelling
    - There are no longer two "Bucks" in the list of your partner's Pokemon
    
    Version 1.00 - 13/07/2007 (Friday the 13th, Ooohhh...)
    - Fixed some Spelling and Grammar
    - Added some more Palmer strategies
    - Finally have some FAQs to add
    - Added a HUGE list showing all your Partner's Pokemon's moves in the Multi 
    Battle Tower (thanks KrulWarrior)
    
    Version 0.90 - 10/07/2007
    - Added some examples of Singles BT Teams
    - Fixed some Spelling and Grammar
    - Added the EVs and Natures of Palmer's Pokemon
    - Added a "Links" section
    - Added a Strategy for Palmer
    - Added a list of Partners and their Pokemon in the Multi Tower section (HUGE 
    thanks to Krulwarrior)
    - All Pokes with Sturdy ability
    
    Version 0.76 - 07/07/2007
    - Was told my E-mail doesn't work (thanks Krulwarrior). Changed Contact section 
    to include the right E-mail...
    
    Version 0.75 - 03/07/2007
    - Expanded the Contact section & the Future Updates. Added the version history.
    
    Version 0.70 - 03/07/2007
    - Added all of the basics regarding the Battle Tower. Was first submitted as an 
    FAQ on the 02/07/07. 
    
    Version 0.50 - 28/06/2007
    - This originally contained just the section, "Designing a Singles BT team," 
    and was posted on the Pokemon Diamond message board. However, with a bit of 
    encouragement, I decided to expand it.

    +++++++++++++   2.0 - Intro   +++++++++++++
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ===============================================================================
    
    This guide is about the Battle Tower found in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.
    
    It originally spawned from a topic I made on 29/06/2007, titled "Battle Tower: 
    Making a Team Mini-FAQ," which was made to try and reduce the number of topics 
    asking for Battle Tower Team help. A few people (look in the credits) said they 
    liked it, and provided some information. Thus, I felt inspired to write this 
    FAQ...
    
    Please note that this guide assumes that you have a basic knowledge of Pokemon. 
    If you don't know what DT or EVs mean, or don't know what Haze does, I suggest 
    you have a quick browse of Gamefaqs and a look at Serebii.net. Both are very 
    useful sources of information regarding Pokemon.
    
    The first half of this guide aims to cover the basics of the Battle Tower, 
    explaining what and where it is, rewards, etc.
    
    The second half of the guide (Section 8) aims to provide specific help for 
    building a team to beat the Single Battle Tower. I figured that most people 
    would concentrate on beating this particular aspect of the Tower, as doing this 
    is one of the ways to upgrade your Trainer Card.
    
    I may eventually expand the Guide to cover Multi & Double battles, although I 
    must admit that at the moment, I haven't had a proper attempt at either one. 
    Any contributions regarding this will be much appreciated (and you WILL be 
    given FULL CREDIT).

    +++++++++++++   3.0 - Where? When? How?   +++++++++++++
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ===============================================================================
    
    First of all, have a look at your Town Map. See that separate island in the 
    North-East corner? That is (roughly) where the Battle Tower is located, and is 
    known as the "Battle Zone." More specifically, it is in the South-West city of 
    the Battle Zone, known as the "Fight Area."
    
    It is not possible to Surf to the island from any point, so don't even try!! 
    You can only reach this island once you have beaten the Elite Four. After you 
    have done this, Fly to Snowpoint City. Immediately South of the city, there is 
    a Sailor blocking the entrance to a boat. Speak to him, and he will ask you if 
    you want to travel to the Battle Zone. 
    
    Once you accept his offer, you will arrive in the Fight Zone. Heading 
    immediately right, you will see the Pokemon Centre. Just after this, you should 
    see a sign that reads "Battle Park Ahead. Where Trainers Train." Just run 
    straight North from this point. You will shortly come across a large building, 
    with entrances on your left and your right. In here is where you can spend your 
    Battle Points, which we'll come to later. For now, carry on straight ahead, 
    where you will find another building. Step inside, this is the Battle Tower.

    +++++++++++++   4.0 - What's in the Battle Tower?   +++++++++++++
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ===============================================================================
    
    In the Battle Tower, you will see three receptionists in front of you. 
    
    The woman on the left is your Guide to the "Multi Battle Rooms."
    
    The woman on the middle is your Guide to the "Single and Double Battle Rooms."
    
    The woman on the right is your Guide to the "Wi-Fi Battle Rooms."
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    4.10 - Multi Battle Rooms
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Here, you partner with a Trainer and enter the Tower with two Pokemon each. 
    When you attempt it, you will first arrive at a room called the Battle Salon. 
    Here, you can meet Trainers that will act as your opponent.
    
    You have the option to communicate Wirelessly with someone else who has a 
    Nintendo DS and a copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pearl, and pair up with them. 
    Alternatively, you can pair up with a computer partner.
    
    Once you have your partner and enter the Tower, seven Tag Teams await you. If 
    you defeat all seven teams, you earn Battle Points.

    4.11 Multi Battle Tower Partners, their Pokemon...
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Each of your Partners in the Battle Tower will choose two random Pokemon from 
    the following list:
    
    ***Credit and HUGE thanks to Krulwarrior for the following info***
    
    Cheryl from Eterna Forest (Unavoidable Event) 
    Snorlax, Latias, Latios, PorygonZ, Porygon2, Blissey, Cresselia, Milotic, 
    Espeon, Umbreon, Gastrodon 
     
    Mira from Wayward Cave (Avoidable Event) 
    Latios, Zapdos, Magmortar, Alakazam, Gardevoir, Gengar, PoygonZ, Roserade, 
    Magnezone, Togekiss, Espeon, Glaceon 
     
    Riley from Iron Mountain (Avoidable Event) 
    Regigigas, Mamoswine, Rhyperior, Metagross, Salamence, Lucario, Medicham, 
    Gyarados, Tyranitar, Slaking, Blaziken, Hariyama, Rampardos, Toxicroak, Absol, 
    Breloom, Poliwrath, Ursaring, Machamp, Rhydon 
     
    Marley from Victory Road (After E4 & National Dex, Avoidable Event) 
    Weavile, Starmie, Crobat, Ninjask, Swellow, Sceptile, Aerodactyl, Electrode, 
    Dugtrio 
     
    Buck from Stark Mountain (Avoidable Event) 
    Cresselia, Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Shuckle, Umbreon, Probopass, Dusknoir, 
    Rhyperior, Skarmory, Bastiodon, Steelix, Forretress 
     
    "Avoidable and Unavoidable event merely points to whether or not the quest is 
    forced during the storyline. Cheryl is the only one who you have to partner 
    with to continue the storyline, the others can be found at the locations above. 
    When partnered with them during the game, they heal your Pokemon after every 
    battle, and all battles are done in 2v2 style, with the partner controlling 
    their own Pokemon. In Multi-Battles, they randomly choose 2 Pokemon out of that 
    listed above and they will join the 2 Pokemon you chose in a series of 7 2v2 
    battles. Before you choose who you go with, each person you talk to in the 
    Battle Saloon gives you the names of the randomly selected Pokemon, as well as 
    telling you 1 move for each Pokemon, giving you a better idea of their 
    strengths." - KrulWarrior

    ***Once again, a HUGE thank you to KrulWarrior. All info in the following 
    section was discovered by him.***
    
    As the following list shows, each of the Pokemon have more than one possible 
    moveset. The chosen moveset is random each time you enter the Battle Tower.

    4.20 - Single and Double Battle Rooms
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    In the Single Battle Tower challenge, you choose three of your own Pokemon to 
    take into the Battle Tower.
    
    In the Double Battle Tower challenge, you choose four of your own Pokemon to 
    take into the Battle Tower.
    
    Whatever your choice, you have to beat seven trainers. If you beat all seven, 
    you will earn Battle Points.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    4.30 - Wi-Fi Battle Rooms
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    In Wi-Fi battles, you are actually battling other People's teams, being 
    controlled by the A.I. 
    
    You have to beat seven trainers in a row to earn Battle Points.
    
    Wi-Fi Battles operate in a ranking system. If you continue to win your battles, 
    you will go up a rank. You can also lose a rank if you consistently lose. 
    
    ===============================================================================
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    +++++++++++++   5.0 - How does the Battle Tower work?   +++++++++++++
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ===============================================================================
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    5.10 - Explanation
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    The ultimate goal of the Battle Tower is to win 100 consecutive battles, 
    without losing. 
    
    However, you don't have to do all 100 at once! Every seven battles, you will 
    automatically leave the Battle Room that you were in, and the game will be 
    saved. To continue with your Battle Tower attempt, you just have to speak to 
    the Receptionist who originally led you to the Battle Room. You will then 
    battle another 7 trainers, and so on. 
    
    If you lose a battle, your winning streak is broken and you have to start again.
    
    The Battle Tower has a Level 50 limit. All Pokemon over this will have their 
    level reduced to 50 once you enter. They will return to the level they were 
    once you leave the Battle Tower. Pokemon under level 50 will not have their 
    level raised.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    5.20 - Banned Pokemon
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    The following Pokemon cannot be used in the Battle Tower:
    
    Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys 
    (all forms), Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin & 
    Arceus
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    +++++++++++++   6.0 - Battle Points & Items   +++++++++++++
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ===============================================================================
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    6.10 - How do you get Battle Points?
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Every time you successfully beat a row of 7 trainers, you are awarded with 
    Battle Points (BP). The more battles you have won in a row, the more BP you 
    will be awarded.
    
    For example, the first and second set of trainers will both give you 3 BP. The 
    third and fourth will give you 4 BP, the fifth and sixth will give you 5 BP, 
    etc. 
    
    Also, you battle a trainer known as the Tower Tycoon (more on him in a later 
    section) on the 21st and the 49th battle (or at the end of the third and 
    seventh set, Single Battle Tower only). If you can beat him, you are awarded 
    20 BP instead of the small number you would usually receive. 
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    6.20 - Where can you spend the Battle Points?
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Remember that large building you ran under, just before reaching the Battle 
    Tower? This is where you can exchange your BP for various items. You can enter 
    in either entrance.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    6.30 - What can you buy with Battle Points?
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    There are two women in this building who can both exchange your BP for items.
    
    The woman on the left will exchange BP for vitamins and various items 
    unobtainable anywhere else:
    
    -------------------------
    ITEM          | BP Cost
    -------------------------
    Protein       |   1

    Razor Fang    |  48
    Rare Candy    |  48
    
    
    The woman on the right will exchange BP for various TMs:
    
    ---------------------------------
    TM No. | Name         | BP Cost
    ---------------------------------
     06    | Toxic        | 32
     73    | Thunder Wave | 32
     61    | Will-O-Wisp  | 32
     45    | Attract      | 32
     40    | Aerial Ace   | 40
     31    | Brick Break  | 40
     08    | Bulk Up      | 48
     04    | Calm Mind    | 48
     81    | X-Scissor    | 64
     30    | Shadow Ball  | 64
     53    | Energy Ball  | 64
     36    | Sludge Bomb  | 80
     59    | Dragon Pulse | 80
     71    | Stone Edge   | 80
     26    | Earthquake   | 80
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    6.40 - The fastest way to obtain BP.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    The quickest, easiest way to obtain BP is to just win against the first 3 rows 
    of trainers in the Single Battle Tower. You will get 3 BP for clearing the 
    first and second rows, and 20 BP for beating the Tower Tycoon. This will make 
    a total of 26 BP. After the 21st battle, the difficulty will be greatly 
    increased, so it is far more productive to just quit against the 22nd trainer, 
    and beat the first 3 rows again.

    7.10 - Who is he? (SPOILERS, minor)
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    The Tower Tycoon is called Palmer, and is actually your Rival's father. You can 
    only fight him in the Single Battle Tower (NOT in Double, Multi or Wi-Fi). You 
    always fight him on your 21st fight and on your 49th fight. Beating him nets 
    you 20 BP.
    
    After beating him the first time, the Pokemon that took part in the battle 
    will receive an Ability Ribbon.
    
    After beating him the second time, the Pokemon that took part in the battle 
    will receive the "Great Ability" Ribbon.
    
    You get a Silver Trophy for 50 consecutive wins.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    7.20 - His Pokemon
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Keep in mind that the Pokemon that he starts off with is determined randomly. 
    At first, I thought it was based on which would screw up your lead the most. 
    However, after a few battles where I have used the same leads against him, this 
    seems not to be the case.
    
    The first time you fight Palmer, he uses the following Pokemon:
    
    Milotic @ Salac Berry
    Timid; EV Trained in Defence and Speed
    Marvel Scale
    ~ Hypnosis
    ~ Hydro Pump
    ~ Dragon Pulse
    ~ Recover
    
    Rhyperior @ Expert Belt
    Quiet; EV trained in Attack and Special Attack
    ~ Flamethrower
    ~ Ice Beam
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Rock Wrecker 
     
    Dragonite @ Wide Lens
    Adamant; EV trained in Attack and HP
    ~ Stone Edge
    ~ Dragon Rush
    ~ Aqua Tail
    ~ Iron Tail
    
    The second time you fight Palmer, he uses the following Pokemon:
    
    Heatran@ Brightpowder
    Quiet; EV trained in Special Attack, HP, and Attack
    ~ Explosion
    ~ Magma Storm
    ~ Dark Pulse
    ~ Flash Cannon
    
    Cresselia @ Leftovers
    Bold; EV trained in HP and Defense
    ~ Calm Mind
    ~ Moonlight
    ~ Psychic
    ~ Shadow Ball
    
    Regigigas @ Chople Berry (Reduces the power of a Fighting move)
    Adamant; EV trained in HP and Attack
    ~ Crush Grip
    ~ Ice Punch
    ~ Stone Edge
    ~ Brick Break

    7.30 - Strategies to beat him
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    In this section, I'll include various strategies to beat Palmer the first time. 
    I've decided against including specific ways to beat him the second time, as 
    there is no benefit to specifically aiming to get past this point. After the 
    21st fight, you should be aiming for 100 wins. If your team has trouble with 
    Palmer the second time, then you're going to struggle getting much further.
    
    
    ******************************************************************************* 
    My Own
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Metagross @ Lum Berry
    Adamant; 252 Atk, 172 HP, 86 Spd
    Clear Body
    ~ Meteor Mash
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Bullet Punch
    ~ Explosion
    
    Starmie @ Life Orb
    Timid, 252 SpAtk / 252 Spd / 6 HP (Timid nature is REALLY IMPORTANT, to outrun 
    the Milotic)
    Natural Cure
    ~ Surf
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Ice Beam
    ~ Psychic
    
    Blissey @ Leftovers
    Bold, 252 HP / 252 Def / 6 SpAtk
    Natural Cure
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Calm Mind
    ~ Softboiled
    ~ Thunder Wave
    
    Here's the plan:
    
    If he leads with Milotic, you've won already. Have Metagross use Explosion, 
    which will kill Milotic. Send out Starmie and sweep Dragonite and Rhyperior. 
    Easy Peasy.
    
    If he leads with anything else, it's slightly harder. Meteor Mash whoever he 
    starts with, which will 2HKO. If Milotic is the second Poke, Explode and have 
    Starmie sweep.. If not, kill the second Pokemon, again using Meteor Mash, then 
    try and Explode against Milotic. However, if Milotic kills Metagross, send out 
    Blissey and prepare for a stall war.
    
    Blissey wins easily against Milotic, it just takes a while. Thunder Wave first, 
    Calm Mind a few times, then kill it with Thunderbolt. Heal with Softboiled as 
    necessary. You will take hardly any damage from it's attacks, which is also why 
    Hypnosis isn't a problem. Even after Milotic's Salac Berry activates, Blissey 
    is still faster, due to Thunder Wave.

    Using the following team:
    
    Garchomp @ Choice Band
    Jolly; 252 Atk, 252 Spd; 6 HP
    Sand Veil
    ~ Outrage
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Aerial Ace
    ~ Fire Fang
    
    Tyranitar @ Focus Sash
    Adamant; 252 Atk, 160 Spd, 92 Def, 6 HP
    Sandstorm
    ~ Dragon Dance
    ~ Crunch
    ~ Stone Edge
    ~ Earthquake
     
    Milotic @ Leftovers
    Bold; 252 SpD, 160 SpA, 96 Def
    Marvel Scale
    ~ Surf
    ~ Ice Beam
    ~ Recover
    ~ Mirror Coat
    
    So for the tower tycoon start off with Garchomp. If he starts off 
    with Milotic (his most annoying pokemon) you've won already. Use 
    Outrage, it'll probably activate Milotic's Salac Berry. This is ok, 
    my garchomp withstood 2 dragon pulses from M ilotic. No matter what 
    he uses next, switch to Milotic. Surf will take out Rhyperior and Ice 
    Beam will take out Dragonite. Use Tyranitar as back up.

    Here it is. The part of the FAQ that will (hopefully) be of most use to 
    everyone struggling to get 100 wins. 
    
    When making a Battle Tower team, it is important to remember that both you and 
    your opponent only have 3 Pokemon. There is actually quite a lot to counter in 
    the Battle Tower, and to do it with just 3 Pokemon can be daunting.
    
    Here, I'm going to list various things to consider when making your team. You 
    don't neccessarily need everything, and some things are certainly more 
    important than others.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    8.10 - A way to deal with Double Team (DT)
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    This move is very common even in the early stages of the Tower. After just 1 
    Double Team, your opponent will be much harder to hit. Shuckle is a fine 
    example of how annoying this can be:
    
    Shuckle @ Brightpowder
    - Double Team
    - Power Trick
    - Stone Edge
    - Earthquake
    
    Damn near impossible to kill, unless you're prepared. 
    
    The best ways to deal with it are as follows: 
     
    - Haze - Resets all stats to their original. In other words, your opponent can 
    DT 6 times, and Haze makes it as if they hadn't even done it once. Good 
    examples include Gengar, Crobat and Weezing.
    
    - 100% accurate moves, e.g. Aerial Ace, Shock Wave, Swift - your opponent can 
    DT all he wants, but the accuracy of these moves is unaffected. They always
    hit, unless your opponent has used Fly, Protect, Dig, etc. 
    Good examples - almost any Pokemon can learn at least 1 via TM, but an 
    especially good one is Salamence with Aerial Ace.
    
    - Taunt - your opponent can only use attacking moves. Most DT Pokemon don't 
    have any attacking moves, so if you use this they will just Struggle themselves 
    to death, whilst you stat up, preparing to sweep the rest of their team. Good 
    examples - again, a lot of Pokemon can learn it via TM, but especially good are 
    Gyrados or Infernape.
    
    - Roar / Whirlwind - always goes last, but forces your opponent to switch. Also 
    known as PHazing (Pseudo Hazing). To be honest, I wouldn't rely on this one. 
    Unlike the other counters, these moves are affected by accuracy / evasion. 
    Therefore, if your opponent DTs just once, there is a chance that Roar / 
    Whirlwind won't hit. Furthermore, if your opponent is down to his last Pokemon, 
    PHazing moves don't work. Like I said, don't rely on it. Good examples - a lot 
    can learn Roar via TM. Just look at your 3 chosen Pokes and see who has room 
    for it.
    
    - Machamp - this Pokemon deserves special mention for his ability - No Guard. 
    This means that all his moves have 100% accuracy. The only downside is that all 
    moves used against him also have 100% accuracy, which means that he's very 
    susceptible to OHKO moves.
    
    - Targeting moves, e.g Mind Reader, Lock-on - These moves "target" your 
    opponent, so that your next attack will always hit (unless your opponent 
    switches, which very rarely happens in the Battle Tower). Good examples include 
    Smeargle and Articuno, as they can also learn OHKO moves to take advantage of 
    the accuracy boost.
    
    Out of all the things to watch out for, this is the most common and annoying, 
    and yet so easy to counter. If you take one thing from this, it should be this 
    - MAKE SURE YOU CAN COUNTER DOUBLE TEAM!!
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    8.20 - Priority Moves
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Priority moves are moves such as Ice Shard, Bullet Punch, etc (preferably NOT 
    Quick Attack, as Ghosts are immune to it). They are very useful, as in later 
    rounds almost every team will have a Focus Sasher. A good example of a Focus 
    Sasher is Weavile:
    
    Turn 1 - Weavile used Swords Dance! (He has such a high speed, he will most 
    likely outrun you)
    -	*Your Pokemon* used *insert Attack here*. It's Super Effective! Enemy 
    Weavile hung on with its Focus Sash!
    
    Turn 2 - Weavile used Ice Punch / Night Slash / Whatever!
    -	*Insert Pokemon here* fainted!
    
    Weavile then proceeds to sweep the remainder of your team... Not very nice!! 
    However, priority moves will guarantee that you still go first (unless they use 
    one as well, and then it's a case of highest speed wins again) and will always 
    do far more than the requisite 1 damage.
    
    They are also a useful way of getting rid of Endure & Berry users, such as 
    Lucario:
    
    Turn 1 - Enemy Lucario uses Endure! (or braces itself, or whatever. Can't 
    remember, sorry)
            *Your Pokemon* uses Earthquake
            Lucario Endured the hit!
            Enemy Lucario's Salac Berry activated!
    
    Turn 2 - Enemy Lucario used Close Combat / Whatever.
             *Your Pokemon* fainted!
    
    And again, your team is defeated one by one. Not as deadly as a Focus Sasher, 
    but still risky.
    
    Finally, Priority moves are a good way to clear weakened Pokemon, 
    
    Good examples include Weavile w/ Ice Shard, Metagross w/ Bullet Punch, etc.
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    8.30 - A way to negate OHKO moves (such as Fissure, Guillotine, etc)
    ===============================================================================
    
    In the later stages, you will come across OHKO users, and it's then that the 
    insane luck that the AI has becomes clear. My personal favourite is this one:
    
    Crawdaunt @ Quick Claw 
    Adamant 
    Guillotine 
    Frustration 
    Ancientpower 
    Aerial Ace
    
    There have been quite a few posts concerning this guy, and how he can destroy 
    almost any unlucky team (Thanks to Krulwarrior for giving me his entire 
    moveset).
    
    There are a number of ways to counter this. Firstly, the Sturdy ability negates 
    all OHKO moves. The levitate ability negates Fissure, as it is a ground type 
    attack. Ghost types are immune to Guillotine, as it is a normal type move. 
    Focus Sash will leave you with 1 HP after the move, allowing you to try and 
    kill your opponent. Finally, if you have a Substitute up, that will be killed 
    first rather than your actual Pokemon.
    
    However, there is a Pinsir with the Mold Breaker ability (negates the opponents 
    ability) that knows a OHKO move. In this instance, Sturdy and Levitate can't 
    save you. Just pray that luck is on your side... Or that you're faster.
    
    Pokemon with the Sturdy Ability:
    
    Geodude, Graveler, Golem, Nosepass, Aron, Lairon, Aggron, Magnemite, Magneton, 
    Skarmory, Donphan, Onix, Sudowoodo, Pineco, Forretress, Steelix, Shuckle, 
    Shieldon, Bastiodon, Bonsly, Magnezone
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    8.40 - A way to deal with Status effects
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    When your Pokemon is still asleep FOUR turns after it had Hypnosis used against 
    it, you'll realise how much you need this. Also, remember that Battle Tower 
    doesn't use Sleep Cause. Counters:
    
    - Lum Berry - cures any Status effect, once. Giving this to one of your Pokemon 
    will often prove beneficial, especially on slower sweepers like Metagross or 
    Tyranitar, allowing them to 2HKO your opponent's status user. 
    
    - Rest Talker - A Pokemon who knows Rest (fully restores HP, cures Status, 
    sleep for 2 turns), Sleep Talk (chooses a random move to use when asleep) and, 
    typically, 2 attack moves. Negates pretty much any status effect apart from 
    freeze (which is VERY uncommon). Also, if your Pokemon is "fully paralysed" or 
    "hurts itself in it's confusion," then Rest won't do anything that turn. 
    
    - Guts Ability - provides a Pokemon with a 1.5x boost to attack when inflicted 
    with a status. 
    
    A good example of the previous 2 points is Heracross: 
     
    Heracross @ Leftovers
    Guts
    - Rest
    - Sleep Talk
    - Megahorn
    - Close Combat / Stone Edge / Earthquake
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    8.50 - A way to deal damage!!
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Yep, the big one. You can follow all the above points, but without a fast 
    sweeper (I'd recommend 2) you'll never get anywhere, and even if you do win, 
    battles will really drag. It is beneficial to have a Physical Sweeper and a 
    Special Sweeper. An example of a Pokemon who gets the job done is as follows 
    (note - it is VERY cheap, haha...)
    
    Latios @ Choice Specs
    Timid / Modest
    252 SpAtk / 252 Speed / 6 HP
    Levitate
    - Draco Meteor
    - Thunderbolt
    - Ice Beam
    - Earthquake (don't say WTF?? It is purely to take out Magnezone, who otherwise 
    completely resists this set)
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    8.60 - Don't have the same types
    
    ===============================================================================
    
    Basically, don't have 3 Pokemon who are all one-shotted by an Ice Beam, for 
    example. Metagross, Tyranitar & Heatran are all very good Pokemon, but do not 
    make a good team, as they are all taken out by both Earthquake and Fighting 
    moves, which are very common. 
    
    Also, don't have 3 Special Sweepers, or 3 Physical Sweepers. You will not be a 
    happy bunny when either Blissey or Skarmory shows up.

    The following team was designed by mario3620. Credit goes to him, and thanks 
    for letting me include it the FAQ:
    
    Starmie @ Wise Glasses 
    Modest; 252 SpA, 252 Spd, 6 HP
    Natural Cure 
    ~ Ice Beam 
    ~ Thunderbolt 
    ~ Surf 
    ~ Recover 
     
    Surprisingly durable, it can one-hit pretty much the entire battle tower 
    besides some electric and grass types, and recover off the damage. Whenever you 
    see an electric type, switch to: 
     
    Electivire @ Expert Belt 
    Lonely; 198 Atk, 124SpA, 176Spd
    Motor Drive 
    ~ Thunderbolt 
    ~ Earthquake 
    ~ Cross Chop 
    ~ Ice Punch 
     
    After switching into an electric type, and getting motor drive, you will 
    outspeed... everything. Earthquake the electric if it doesn't levitate, then 
    fight with this until you beat the trainer or it dies. If you do die, switch 
    back to Starmie unless it is a grass or water type, in which case you should 
    switch to: 
     
    Salamence @ Life Orb 
    Adamant; 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 6 HP
    Intimidate  
    ~ Dragon Dance 
    ~ Fire Fang 
    ~ Earthquake 
    ~ Dragon Claw 
     
    This is sitting in the back of the party. It isn't used as much as Starmie or 
    Electivire, it just waits for opportunities. Good for taking out grass types 
    that you aren't sure if you can one-hit with starmie or electivire w/ ice 
    attacks. If you see a poke that you think you can switch in Salamence on, and 
    you want to, do so. Even better, if you see one you think you can switch in on, 
    and DD, and you are successful, you are almost guaranteed a win, unless the 
    Life Orb kills you.
    
    Reached 100+ Battles.

    Garchomp @ Choice Band
    Jolly; 252 Atk, 252 Spd; 6 HP
    Sand Veil
    ~ Outrage
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Fire Fang/Aerial Ace/Crunch
    ~ Fire Fang/Aerial Ace/Crunch
     
    Outrage for major STAB. Not much will survive this that doesn't resist a STABed 
    Outrage from Garchomp. Earthquake, again for major STAB. The other two are 
    basically fillers for more of a variety of types. Start off with outrage, 
    switch when confused and then switch back to garchomp when your other pokemon 
    faints. Rinse, slather, repeat.
    
    Tyranitar @ Focus Sash
    Adamant; 252 Atk, 160 Spd, 92 Def, 6 HP
    Sandstorm
    ~ Dragon Dance
    ~ Crunch
    ~ Stone Edge/Rock Slide
    ~ Earthquake
     
    I personally like stone edge but, it's your choice. Sand Stream works well with 
    Garchomp (increases evasion) and focus sash is for those fighting types. After 
    you are saved by focus sash against a Lucario, dragon dance then you should be 
    able to outspeed it to get another attack in.
     
    Milotic @ Leftovers
    Bold; 252 SpD, 160 SpA, 96 Def
    Marvel Scale
    ~ Surf
    ~ Ice Beam
    ~ Recover
    ~ Mirror Coat
     
    This baby has saved me a bunch of times. It has outlasted many opponents. 
    Leftovers neutralizes Tyranitar's sand stream.
    
    Reached 112 battles.

    Staraptor @ Choice Band 
    Jolly; 4 Hp, 252 Atk, 252 Spd 
    ~ Brave Bird 
    ~ U-Turn 
    ~ Return 
    ~ Close Combat 
     
    Something that is able to hit a lot of things VERY hard. Not much survives a CB 
    Brave bird if it's neutral or Super-effective. Fast and Strong, something 
    that's useful in the Battle Tower. 
     
    Infernape @ Life Orb 
    Lonely; 136 Atk, 252 Spd, 135 SpAtk 
    ~ Close Combat 
    ~ Flare Blitz 
    ~ Grass Knot 
    ~ Will-o-Wisp 
     
    The concept of Will-o-wisp on a Mixed sweeper may not be appealing but it saves 
    you majority of the time when you're up against Tyranitar,  Regigigas (Palmers 
    2nd team) etc. The physical and special stats are just about balanced, more so 
    favoured in physical. This is very fast as well so don't expect many opponents 
    to be faster. Grass knot enables a 2HKO on Suicune, Milotic and a OHKO on 
    Swampert. 
     
    Regice @ Leftovers 
    Calm - 252 Hp/160 SpAtk/96 SpDef 
    ~ Thunderbolt 
    ~ Ice Beam 
    ~ Rest 
    ~ Sleep Talk 
     
    Starmie is possibly the only thing that troubles this team in a severe manner, 
    but it's also something that can't beat Regice one on one. BoltBeam basically 
    handles most types, neutral and stuff. Also great against Milotic in Palmers 
    first team.
    
    Reached 173 battles

    Timid - 252SpAtk/252Spd/6HP   
    ~ Shadow ball 
    ~ Thunderbolt 
    ~ Focus blast 
    ~ Destiny bond 
     
    This can 2hko most Pokemon, then outspeed and destiny bond the next  
     
    Slaking @Choice Band 
    Adamant - 252Atk/252Spd/6HP 
    ~ Giga impact 
    ~ Earthquake 
    ~ Faint attack 
    ~ Fire blast(never used) 
     
    Comes in after Gengar and typically takes out the final Pokemon in 1 hit with 
    giga impact  
      
    Creselia @ Leftovers 
    Bold - 252HP/252Def/6HP
    ~ Calm mind  
    ~ Reflect 
    ~ Ice beam  
    ~ Rest 
     
    Rest is for status and healing, this thing can tank most Pokemon.
    
    This team really only had difficulty with Weaville. Reached 100+ wins

    Umbreon @ Leftovers
    Ability: Synchronize
    Bold - 252Def/252SpDef/6HP
    ~ Toxic
    ~ Protect
    ~ Moonlight
    ~ Dark Pulse
     
    This one is the wall.  Umbreon should always be your lead. If you 
    face a Steel or Poison, switch, otherwise use Toxic. Protect allows 
    toxic and leftovers to kick in.  Moonlight is a useful healing 
    move.  Dark Pulse is when you don't need to heal.  Umbreon is a good 
    choice due to the fact that it's nearly impossible to one shot 
    without using OHKO moves.
     
    Starmie @ Wise Glasses
    Ability: Natural Cure
    Modest - 252SpAt/252Spd/6 HP
    ~ Surf
    ~ Ice Beam
    ~ Thunderbolt
    ~ Recover
     
    The special sweeper. Surf gets STAB,and Thunderbolt and Ice Beam hit 
    almost everything else for at least neutral damage. Recover is 
    something you won't use often but when Starmie's in trouble you'll be 
    thankful you have it. 
     
    Machamp @ Muscle Band
    Ability: No Guard
    Adamant - 252Atk/252Spd/6 HP
    ~ Dynamicpunch
    ~ Stone Edge
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Swords Dance
     
    The physical sweeper.  Machamp is the #1 Pokemon when you get a nasty 
    DTer. Dynamicpunch has STAB and a 100% chance of inflicting 
    confusion, and with No Guard, always hits. Earthquake and Stone Edge 
    have good type coverage for whatever else is coming Machamp's 
    way. After a Swords Dance no one can stop him easily.
    
    Reached 116 battles in a row. Has a weakness towards OHKO moves.

    dark_excal
    *******************************************************************************
     
    Weaville @ Focus Sash 
    Adamant - 252Atk/252Spd/6HP 
    Pressure 
    ~ Swords Dance 
    ~ Night Slash 
    ~ Ice Punch 
    ~ Brick Break 
     
    Even though he has a focus sash and swords dance, it's not always the first 
    move. With that speed, it can often just OHKO things, though it'll take a bit 
    of testing, poking around (and losing, unfortunately) before knowing which is 
    which. Takes care of a LOT of things, most battles just involve a single swords 
    dance and the entire opponent's team keeling over. 
     
    Gengar @ Choice Specs 
    Modest - 252SpAtk/252Spd/6HP 
    Levitate 
    ~ Shadow Ball 
    ~ Psychic 
    ~ Sludge Bomb 
    ~ Thunderbolt 
     
    Main purpose is actually to absorb a mach punch, which is the bane of (this) 
    Weaville, hence Psychic, this slot actually used to have an Alakazam, but too 
    many close shaves have convinced me to change, especially since Gengar takes no 
    damage from the two types I switch it in on 
     
    Garchomp @ Life Orb 
    Lonely; 180Atk, 118Sp.Atk, 212Spd 
    Sand Veil 
    ~Crunch/Stone Edge (Up to you) 
    ~Dragon Claw 
    ~Flamethrower 
    ~Earthquake 
     
    Main purpose is to absorb the nasty electric attacks and thunder wave, as well 
    as switching into fire types and such, also sandstreamers, and to a lesser 
    extent sandstorm. Crunch or Stone Edge is really just a filler move, since both 
    Weaville and Gengar are capable of hitting for super effective damage against 
    the same things. The funny thing, flamethrower, is actually there just for 
    Scizor. The Ev's are completely experimental, if you want, you can swap 
    flamethrower for fire fang, make him adamant, and do the traditional 252/252 
    split, which is what I used to have 
      
    Reached 100+ wins. Pokemon to look out for include a Dusknoir lead, who's Trick 
    Room can be very painful, and anything with mach punch. Something that has been 
    an issue in the past is also Togetic, who has extremespeed, but a straight up 
    ice punch will be enough to deal with it, and otherwise, switch to gengar. 
    Apart from that, basically any walls that you encounter. I've slowly managed to 
    work out which pokemon Weaville can take, and which can't.

    Victor Amarante 
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Salamence @ Life Orb
    Modest - 252SpAtk/252Spd/6HP 
    ~ Draco Meteor 
    ~ Flamethrower 
    ~ Hydro Pump 
    ~ Dragon Pulse 
     
    With Flamethrower and Hydro Pump it can take down a lot of things easily, also 
    it has a huge SpAtk, so it's going to be easy to bring down what doesn't take a 
    supper effective from it. Dragon Pulse will dammage everything, and also has 
    STAB, Draco Meteor is to bring down a strong opponent in a single hit. 
     
    Tyranitar @ Leftovers  
    Adamant - 252Atk/196Spd/60HP 
    ~ Crunch 
    ~ Stone Edge 
    ~ Earthquake 
    ~ Focus Punch 
     
    Just your physical sweeper. It can bring down nearly everything with a single 
    hit. The only problem is if grass or water types shows up. If they do, just 
    bring in... 
     
    Azelf @ Wise Glasses
    Timid - 252SpAtk/252Spd/6HP 
    ~ Psychic 
    ~ Flamethrower 
    ~ Grass Knot 
    ~ Nastly Plot 
     
    The most dangerous special sweeper out there IMO. Being able to use Nastly Plot 
    and then a STABed Psychic is enough to destroy most of the teams that exists on 
    the Battle Tower. Flamethrower takes care of Steel Type, Grass and Ice, Grass 
    Knot are for water, ground, rocks and mainly, Rhyperiors and Tyranitars. A 
    Nasty Plotted Azelf can easily take care of a Blissey with just a couple of 
    Psychics.

    pokedex. Why not?"
    
    I'm afraid that, much like when Battling with WiFi, new Pokemon that you've 
    seen in the Battle Tower aren't registered on your Pokedex.
    
    - "I've seen you recommend X Pokemon with Y move. However, mine won't learn it. 
    Why not?"
    
    This alludes to Gengar with Counter, Metagross with Thunderpunch, etc. I've 
    updated the FAQ to show how you get them. They are nearly all taught by the 
    Move Tutors in Pokemon Emerald/Fire Red/Leaf Green, then exported to 
    Diamond/Pearl. Check the R/S/E/FR/LG Pokedex on Serebii.net for more details.
    
    - "How do I get X move onto Y Pokemon?"
    
    This falls under "Bad Emails," and is simple enough to find out. Either check 
    Serebii.net, use the Search function on Gamefaqs, or make a topic on Gamefaqs. 
    These are all much faster than waiting for an email response from me.
    
    - "Can't you just turn off the power if you're about to lose?"
    
    Nope. The game knows that you didn't finish the full set of seven, so it will 
    just finish your winning streak, and you'll have to start over.
    
    Any further questions? The next section's for you...
    
    - "What are those numbers next to the natures of the Pokemon? What are EVs?"
    
    I've had a lot of these emails. The numbers next to the natures of the Pokemon 
    are the EVs that I suggest you train them in (e.g. Adamant - 252Atk/252Spd/6HP 
    means 252 EVs in attack, 252 EVs in speed, 6 in HP). For specific info on EVs, 
    I recommend reading weremidget's EV sticky on the Gamefaqs Pokemon Diamond 
    board: 
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=925601&topic=38648412
    
    Any more specific questions should be asked on gamefaqs boards.
    
    - "How important are natures/EVs/IVs in the Battle Tower?"
    
    IVs are not overally important when just trying to get 100 wins (although if 
    you're aiming higher, your Pokemon will need all the survivability they can 
    get). However, natures are very useful, as they provide a 10% boost to the stat 
    of your choosing, and EVs allow you to tailor your Pokemon.

    When emailing me, please put something in the Subject box, like "Pokemon" or 
    "Battle Tower FAQ." This way, it will be easily identifiable.
    
    If you're looking to contribute something to the guide, please keep the actual 
    contribution (i.e. the bit that I'll be copying into the guide) relatively 
    short and too the point. Also, please make sure you leave a name that I can 
    credit the contribution to; otherwise I'll just use the name in your email 
    address. If you want to remain anonymous, just say so.
    
    A few things to note when contacting me:
    
    Good Emails - 
    - Constructive criticism
    - Contributions to the Guide
    - Spelling / Grammar mistakes
    - "Thank You" letters. Always nice to read
    - Questions that haven't been answered in this FAQ
    - Suggestions on how to improve the Guide
    
    Bad Emails - 
    - Poor language - I don't have the patience to try and decipher internet slang
    - Asking for Friend Codes - I find that WiFi battling is too slow paced, and 
    awkward to set up. I do all my Poke fights on Shoddy Battle.
    - Saying "Your Guide sucks." Why? Be constructive
    - Asking questions that are already answered. USE CTRL + F!!
    - Spam - no thanks...
    - Asking questions that are unrelated to the Battle Tower

    If anyone would like to contribute anything regarding this, you will receive 
    full credit.
    
    Any good examples of teams for the BT that I receive. Please note that I no 
    longer want teams to beat Palmer the second time. If you are going to suggest a 
    new team, please make sure a similar team hasn't already been included. Please 
    include EVs, natures, a general strategy, how far the team reached and a name 
    to credit you with. If you lay it out in the same way as this guide, you'll 
    become my new favourite person and I'll be far more likely to add it quickly.
