posted by me. Hurray!
NOTE: This is NOT an in depth guide for egg moves, EV
Training, or anything similar to. Thinking so will result
in sore eyes, with possible side effects including chronic
headaches, yelling fits, and ď&^$!; This isnít what I
need!Ē Syndrome. I, and the company/website of GameFAQs,
are not liable for any other side effects not listed, and
you read this guide at your own risk. Thank you.
Welcome to my guide for Wi-Fi battles. Now I know a
lot of other guides tell you about EVís and IVís and all
that other jazz. Yeah, a lot of that can help, but if you
just wanna play and win a damn match without having to go
through all the trouble, this is the guide for you.
Iím not knocking EV training at all, or saying itís
not important. All Iím saying is that I donít want to spend
all that time doing it and, to be honest, a lot of people
donít. The only type of EV training Iím going to have you
do is the EV training items (I.e., Carbos, Protein, etc.)
and thanks to the Battle Frontier/Park in DPP, getting them
is really quick and painless.
Alright so hereís what you need to do first. Beat your
DS game. Plain and simple. Thereís plenty of guides on how
to do it, just do it. I donít care how or with who, just do
it and get it done. This isnít going anywhere and reading
up on it now might make your game harder for you in the
IA. Before You StartÖ
Alright, weíll start with this. ANY POKEMON YOU CATCH
OR START WITH FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE GAME IS NOT GOOD
ENOUGH TO BE A WI-FI CONTENDER.
Did I get that across okay? Alright. Toss your
Torterra and trusty Luxray to the side and listen up; If
you wanna have a good enough team to win multiple battles
(especially without legendaries) youíre going to have to
raise them from level 1. Itís a pain in the ass, but itís
Now that weíre past that, thereís a couple things you
have to do before starting your training. First off, you
need to have all of the stat boosting items you can get
from the Battle Frontier/Park. The Power Bracer, Lens, etc.
I also recommend the Macho Brace as well. Even multiples of
it. Itís one of my favorite items and it should be one of
Once you get all of that, youíre pretty much ready to
start. An optional item that I highly recommend is the stat
raising items like protein and carbos. Each mon at level 1
can have 10 of each item, raising that EV 10 points per
item used. Most wont use all 10 for each stat, and the rest
of the EVís come from training normally. Itís not
necessary, but it does make things easier. Besides, it only
costs 1 BP for 1 item.
Also, I recommend each one of your pokemon to be at
least 75 before hopping in a PBR match, making sure you get
itís most powerful moves (I.e., Water Spout for Kyogre)
Another recommendation is having Pokemon XD: Gale of
Darkness. This game wasnít blockbuster, but every pokemon
you catch has a special move thatís either: A.) impossible
to get or B.) a difficult egg move to get. For example, the
Zapdos you catch in that game has Metal Sound, which lowers
Sp. Def two levels, while Moltres picks up Extrasensory, an
80 power psychic attack that can flinch. Plus, the Lugia
that you get has some serious trade value on the GameFAQS
forum list, having Psycho Boost and Featherdance. Also, if
you have some patience, you can clear all 100 battles at
Mt. Battle to get all 3 Johto starters. Not only that, they
come equipped with an awesome egg move AND their own
elemental Hyper Beam (I.e., Blast Burn for Cyndaquil, with
reversal), even though with DPP thatĎs not rare anymore.
Seriously, a Gamecube only costs 30 dollars now at
GameStop, and you might even be able to get it for CHEAPER.
Do it. Iím using my Jedi Mind Trick. Go.
IB. Eggs and Egg Moves
Iím not in any way or form going to name every pokemon
egg group and egg move in the game. Thatís insane and I
give props to any person who decides to do that. If you
want that kind of information, GameFAQs has a lot of really
good guides to getting your pokemon the natures you want
and the moves you want. Check them out.
But back to the this. There are a lot of egg moves
that can make a lot of the good pokemon even better (I.e.,
Tyranitar with Outrage = sex). If youíre going to handle
all of the legendary pokemon youíre going to face, youíre
going to have to utilize this strategy to the fullest.
Otherwise, youíll just get destroyed time and time again,
and I donít want to hear about another wiimote tossed
through a TV screen in anger. Iím really tired of that.
Iím sure you know the basics of egg moves, but here it
is anyway. The male pokemon passes down the moves, while
the female passes down the type of pokemon. Thereís
something a lot of people donít know though. The female
also passes down a similar nature 25% of the time on
average (I donít know the actual percentage. Thatís just my
percentage.). However, if the pokemon holds an Everstone,
it passes down a similar nature 50% of the time, which is
amazing. Use this method to your advantage to get the
nature you want faster.
IC. EV Training To The Simplest
Alright, now you have all of the training items I told
you to get, right? If not, you need to get them. Itís
crucial to your success. Now once you get your cute little
pokes at level 1 with the nature you want, youíll want to
attach the training item you want IMMEDIATELY. This causes
you to get more EVís towards that certain stat, while
making you act last almost all the time, even with high
Hereís what I recommend; retrace your steps of rising
to the top and crushing Sinnoh, and utilize your Vs.
Seeker. Psychic pokes are easier to train with the items,
because those lucky little fellas get to have a nice move
call Trick Room. Lame, but effective.
Also, double battles are your friend. You can use your
higher pokes with double battle owning moves like
Earthquake or Surf and equip your tiny poke with Protect
temporarily. It makes things a lot easier, and moves things
very quickly along until your poke can act on itís own
accord. If your little poke is on a GBA game, I would
suggest transferring to XD if you have that option. Mt.
Battle on the GCN Pokemon is a great place for low level
training, but you wonít get to use anything but the Macho
Brace unfortunately :[. Still, if you want to train them up
faster, Mt. Battle, Protect, and an angry Groudon could
speed things up for you.
Once your poke either evolves to itís last stage or
gets strong enough to handle itself, make it fight the
strongest pokemon you can. Remember, if it faints it
doesnít really matter. You donít have to make it happy (and
I will NEVER make you use Return or Frustration) for it to
Thatís all Iím having you do. Thatís all I do and Iíve
only lost twice out of 97 battles on PBR. Itís your
decision if you want to do more. All Iím saying is itís not
necessary to win.
ID. Easy Training Areas
A lot of people donít know where to train their low
level pokes or even their high level pokes. Iím gonna make
things real easy for you, and post a couple of my favorite
spots right here.
- North of Solaceon up the bike path, thereís a double
battle with a Clefairy and Pikachu thatís almost not worth
it and a Pkmn Breeder with an Elekid and a Happiny. Happiny
gives you 1.2k experience EVERYTIME. Youíre going to
destroy this guy hundreds of times with your low to mid
level guys to train them up easily.
- North of the Battle Frontier, thereís 3 trainers. Oneís a
Bird Keeper with some decent exp training for pokemon good
against birds. I think he has a Farfetchíd, Swellow, and
Skarmory. Donít quote me though, Iíll check later. Thereís
a psychic with two Slowbro. AWESOME TRAINING. Slowbro is
dumb, and really easy to beat. Great/easy training with
even an unSTABed boltbeamer or even a psychic pokemon with
Shadow Ball or a shock attack.
- The Elite Four is irritating, I know, but the training
there is awesome. In Platinum, the levels go up even
higher, and itís just amazing training for all types of
high level pokemon you have.
Iím open for more places of training. E-mail or IM me at
anytime during the week and Iíll test them out myself. If
they work as well as you say, Iíll add them to the guide
and give you credit for giving me the information. Those
are my favorite 3 places, however.
II. Rockiní Teams
WOOO! The moment you all have been waiting for!
WellÖmaybe not. BUT! This is where Iím going to list off
combinations that have worked for me in the past. If you
have your own combinations, as Iíve said before, send them
my way and Iíll test them myself and raise them myself. I
donít want people screaming at me through e-mails about how
their team is better. Listen, I donít care. Iím trying to
help the people that want the teams they wanna use to be
better. You can shove your ďall uber rapeĒ team up your
Anyways, Iíll list off all the combinations Iíve used,
with and without Ubers alike. If you want to win on PBR, it
IS possible with a no Uber team, but itís much harder,
since the opposition really doesnít care if you like them
or not. Theyíre still going to use them and, letís be
honest, theyíre some of the most powerful pokemon in the
Alright. This is where the depth comes in. Grab your
reading glasses, a pen and paper, and your Gameboy. This
is about to get heavy. This section covers the use of teams
with Ubers in them. Keep in mind: I donít like legendary
pokemon that much either. Thereís no sense of training
there, and they kind of suck fun out of the game. But
without them, many would be lost. It makes a trainer feel
good to catch a Mewtwo in a Poke Ball (which Iíve done by
the way. Itís a good feeling), or finally find that stupid
Latios youíve been running all over the ******* world for
just for it to have a bad nature. Bastard.
Anyway, hereís the first team.
Groudon @ Expert Belt/Muscle Band
Eruption/Fire Blast (Level Depending)
Cherrim @ Focus Band (Item really doesnít matter here,
whatever you choose is fine, but I like focus band)
Gardevoir @ Big Root/ (I PREFER Synchronize here, but Trace
isnít a bad thing either. More on this in a minute)
Thunderbolt/Shadow Ball (I Prefer Thunderbolt)
Electivire @ Muscle Band/Expert Belt/Scope Lens (Iíve had
success with all three)
Magnet Rise/Cross Chop/Whatever (This is really a
fillerÖFire Punch can be successful SOMETIMES, but most of
the time if you need a fire attack THAT badly, Groudon
usually takes care of it)
Umbreon @ Focus Band/Brightpowder
Protect/Attract (I donít like attract, but itís still
Latios @ Soul Dew
Ice Beam/Shadow Ball
Recover/Ice Beam/Shadow Ball
Optional Poke (I use this one; nothing too crazy for moves
Darkrai @ Anything Fun =] The Wise Glasses are fun.
Dark Void (DuhÖ)
Obviously, the main point of this team is Cherrimís
Flower Gift, but there are a lot of other places this team
works out well. This was the first team I used, and I loved
it. Itís just fun to play with. Even if you lose a couple
times, itís still fun to play with. I know you canít get
Darkrai, which is why I put Latios in there. I did happen
to get one, and itís possible to trade for a semi-legit one
(which CAN be used in PBR).
Let me try to explain the tactics here. Many battles
start with Cherrim and Groudon, and for some reason people
go after Groudon (silly kidsÖ), because Groudon sets out an
everlasting Sunny Day. Now, the Groudon I used to use to
peruse through XDís Mt. Battle couldnít have Thunderpunch
(I didnít have Emerald *tearz*), but Thunderbolt worked
wonders on those damn birds. When I made this, Thunderpunch
sounded good to me =]. Either way works, with Thunderpunch
having the power advantage. Groudon is really the only Uber
needed for this team to work every time, and it really
doesnít do all that much. Itís good at wreaking havoc among
the other Ubers, and not many people on Wi-Fi are going to
use Kyogre, which is really the only pokemon you should
worry about. Palkia CAN cause problems, but itís mediocre
speed stat makes it unreliable as an effective Groudon
killer. Another recommendation; get a neutral nature for
your Groudon. Lowering any one itís stats gives it a
Cherrim is your blessing in disguise. It makes all of
your stronger pokemon stronger, and just makes things fun.
Cherrim, otherwise, is a piss poor grass type, not learning
much in the form of other types of moves. By not much, I
mean it can learn Hyper Beam, Giga Impact, and Rollout (for
real NintendoÖrollout?) and THATíS IT. It sucks in that
sense, and it wont be putting up much of a fight. In all
honesty, Iíd highly consider dumping SolarBeam for
Safeguard. Safeguard and Lucky Chant makes the opposition
kinda screwed in the form of the luck factor, and a lot of
the time this team is going to out muscle other Uber teams
(yeah I said it. And IĎll prove it too. FC at the bottom,
bring it on).
Gardevoir is going to be your cheap skate. Heís gonna
be the one pokemon that people arenít going to expect.
Skill Swap is gonna be the factor. We all know Cherrim
canít take a hit to save itís life (though it does survive
a Adamant Groudon Earthquake, so that isnít entirely true),
and thatís where Gardevoir comes in. Use its Skill Swap
when Cherrim is low on HP and save itís Flower Gift
ability. If Cherrim is in good standing, use Icy Wind to
lower the speed of your opponents unless youíve got
something out there Voir can beat up easily (I.e., Gyarados
+ Thunderbolt). This way, youíll be able to use Skill Swap
much easier, and you wonít have to worry about Voir and
Cherrimís mediocre speed as much. Between you and me, Icy
Wind made my first trip through Orre in XD a lot easier.
Also, a Trace Voir can easily use Skill Swap to give an
opponents skill to someone who can use it better.
Electivire is a beast. Done. There really isnít much
else to it. Itís ability, Motor Drive, is easily spammed
using Groudon or Gardevoir. Electivire has a very wide
moveset, and you can form it around however way you choose.
I like to have Ice Punch for the probable Dragon type
youíll see. The only downside to Electivire is itís piss
poor defenses. Sp. Def. is mediocre, but not as bad as it
seems. Thereís a way around this, but itís hard, and
sometimes not worth your time. If you traded out Electivire
with a Mewtwo or a Zapdos, itíd be understandable, but I
lean towards Electivire. Itís fast enough to outrun
Garchomp and the Uber Dragons, which is what I use it for
most of the time anyway.
Alright, Umbreon! My favorite little helper! You might
notice it has ZERO attacks. Well, high up pokemon trainers
know that this little beast doesnít need one. Itís out
there for one thing and one thing only: to piss your
opponent off. Umbreon has gotten OHKOíed once and ONLY
ONCE. That was from a CH Cross Chop from a very angry
Electivire. Toxic gets progressively more powerful over
time, and no one uses Refresh/Rest anymore. Confuse Ray is
obvious. I hate confusion with a passion, and mix it with
paralysis and itís just down right irritating (paralysis,
attractiveness, and confusion is a combo youíll see later).
Protect just further bothers people, and keeps Umbreon
breathing long enough for perhaps a Synchronize effect to
come into play. Snatch is kind of a weird move. It can be
the most helpful and most useless thing in the world. What
it does is it stills your opponents status changing or
healing move and uses it instead. So moves like Recover and
Thunder Wave are rendered useless. You sometimes steal a
move, too. For example, if a Raichu used Thunderbolt while
you were using Snatch, and it was going to paralyze itís
target, Umbreon would take the attack and use it as itís
own. Really just a filler here, for in between 2 Protects
(Protect, Snatch, Protect). This Umbreon can be and should
be in almost every 4 slotted lineup with this team.
Latios. Okay. Iíll be honest, I had no idea whether
Latios was going to actually be of help to me in PBR. It
wasnít looking good when I caught it. Timid nature, just
trying to find a temporary replacement for Darkrai
specifically for this guide (youíre welcome). The speed
boosting nature was actually really cool, and Latios worked
well with Groudon and Electivire. Not to mention, I ended
up getting a Soul Dew as well, which I felt was pretty
lucky to find that (thank you GameFAQs trading board).
Dragon Pulse was a TM I ended up giving to my Latios,
unaware it learned it. Oops =]. Anyway, nothing too crazy
here. Psychic is obvious, Iíd hope. The last two moves are
really just fillers. Honestly, Shadow Ball has little worth
on the main game, but youíd be surprised how many times
Mewtwo shows upÖor maybe you wouldnít. Anyway, Ice Beam
isnít really necessary. By the way, with Flower Gift AND
the Soul Dew, a Latios on average with a neutral nature
will have 360 Sp. Atk. Not that it should mean anything to
you or anything. =]
Darkrai is the pokemon I use in PBR. Itís legit, and I
received it using the gift item Member Card from an event
near my house. Dark Void is an unbelievably useful
technique, and Darkrai isnít slow. It puts both of your
opponents to sleep with the best accuracy next to Spore
(having 100%). Itís defenses are good enough to make it
survive, and there isnít a single Fighting pokemon thatíll
out run it. Bad Dreams is just another one of those bother
moves, and another move that can be Skill Swapped around
with Gardevoir. If you can get a semi-legit Darkrai, I
still recommend it. GameFAQs trading boards are here, guys.
Thereís one out there if you put the work out. Itís moveset
really isnít anything special. It makes things go zzZzzZz
while you beat them up (or get off a Guard Swap/Groudon sun
time?). It makes maneuvering around those big bad
legendaries a lot easier.
Overall opinion - A-
This is the team I generally use when I wanna prove my
prowess as a Pokemon Trainer. Instead of just one strategy,
it has multiple, making it very versatile and easy to use.
A team of all Ubers still can prove to be a challenge,
though, but this is the least amount of them I could use
and win with. My two losses on Wi-F came from teams
consisting of Deoxys, Rayquaza, Mewtwo, etc. It was close
(a 1x1 finisher between my weakened Darkrai and a full
health Mewtwo. Dark Void missed, and I knew Dark Pulse
wasnít going to be a OHKO). As long as you play smart with
this team, you should do fine. I didnít even have to use
the EV training items with this team; I just trained
normally. So if youíre looking for something like that,
this is an easy team to train and use. This team only lost
to one of the other teams I created, and is the only reason
I had to give it the A-.
Thatís the team I recommend to any starting PBR
trainer. Easy to raise, with some simple movesets. I canít
imagine a team accomplishing a similar tactic any better,
and I havenít found one yet. If you want one with pure
power, this next one will be down your alley. Lots of
Uberness here. Let it fill you with joy, glee, and
hopefully victory. Not a lot of strategy here, just a
couple highlander pokemon.
Mewtwo @ Wise Glasses
Ice Beam/Focus Blast
Recover (some people use restÖI donít like that at all)
Rayquaza @ ???
Okay hereís the deal. There are so many ways you can go with
this pokemon, that I couldnít list the one youíre all going
to like. So hereís the deal. Iíll post my thoughts, and you
can just go with what you want.
Rayquaza @ Muscle Belt/Focus Sash
Shadow Claw/Avalanche (ONLY if Mewtwo doesnít have Shadow
Ball; Otherwise, go with the latter)
Draco Meteor/Focus Blast (ONLY if Mewtwo didnít choose Ice
Beam; Otherwise go with the latter)
Deoxys (Speed Form) @ Expert Belt/Black Belt
Dialga @ Adamant Orb
Roar of Time/Earth Power
Palkia @ Lustrous Orb
Lugia (This is from XD) @ Leftovers
Extrasensory (more on this below)
Alright hereís how this one works. You throw the Poke
BallsÖrelease 2 of the 6 pokemon you haveÖand thatís it.
Everything else just kinda happens. No real strategy here,
and most of you are going ďWell, duh. Thatís kinda
obvious.Ē Well no itís not. Youíd be surprised how many
times I fought a Dialga with leftovers using Draco Meteor.
It didnít even kill my Umbreon in one hit. Nicely done,
PokeMaster287. Nicely done.
All personal stabs aside, this team speaks for itself.
Iíll go through each one though, just for your pleasure (or
Mewtwo sometimes gets forgotten along the way. With
the amazing amount of legendaries Game Freak and Nintendo
are spamming, they are starting to realize a lot of our old
Kanto friends werenít made to be very good (giving Flareon
Fire Fang is no help Nintendo. Whereís Flare Blitz?!)
Anyway, choose whether you want Ice Beam or Thunderbolt or
both. Choosing both will make the RBY and Stadium favorite
Mewtwo. It killed almost anything in its path. Shadow Ball
is a special attack now, leaving that open as an option,
and Focus Blast would annihilate any dark types thrown your
way (except for UmbreonÖsuXX0rs)
Rayquaza is your own decision. Iím not talking about
Deoxysí Speed Form is a bit underrated. Being in Speed
Form makes it faster than everything. Go ahead, reread it a
few times. NOTHING WILL MATCH YOUR SPEED. Itís stats are
even across the board, and no one, including the AI,
expects your Deoxys to be using Substitute and Focus Punch.
It works well, I promise you that. Psycho Boost in case of
emergency (ICE from now on), which should fry anything you
need it too. Donít forget to spam recover after using a FP.
Dialgaís pretty simple. Use itís Adamant Orb to your
advantage and overpower your opponent with Dragon Pulse and
Flash Cannon. Roar of Time is an ICE move for sure, and it
saves your skin quite a few times. If you feel itís not
helping you along, swap it out with Earth Power for some
more versatility. Aura Sphere never misses, not much more
to say there.
Palkiaís about the same thing, really, though it
doesnít need Dragon Pulse. I really donít like Surf
anymore. They decided to make it hit your partner (which
makes sense, but itís still irritating) and that just isnít
worth it in my book. Water Pulse is weak, but if you really
need a Water attack with more power that badly, you just
guessed wrong and probably deserve to lose. Earth Power and
Aura Sphere stay the only obvious winners here.
Lugia is your supporter for this team. The only poke I
suspect you wonít use at least every other battle. Itís
defenses are top notch, and help it outlive most Ubers,
even with a Super-effective hit. Featherdance is basically
to stop hardcore physical attackers like Electivire or a
Deoxys in attack form, but it doesnít matter. Aeroblast is
a special attack now which makes me happy ^_^ see? Recover
makes Lugia outlast everyone, thanks to itís unnoticeably
high speed. Seriously. Itís faster than a lot of pokemon.
Itís surprising, really.
Overall - B
Look, Iíll be plain with you guys. I donít like Ubers all
that much, so the grade is a little biased. This team wins
a lot, but it usually only wins when your opponent doesnít
have a solid strategy to play with. Although it has no
strategy, this one is better for the younger kids for the
simple fact that they could go in blind and win a fight
with this team. Seriously. I canít give it a lower grade
than a B, though, because itís really hard to beat a team
like this. With a 6 on 6 fight between this and my first
team (above), all of these guys hard a hard time dealing
with Darkraiís sleep techniques and speed (except Deoxys of
course). It ended up with the first team winning with 3
pokemon remaining: Gardevoir, Darkrai, and Cherrim. Cherrim
hadnít even seen the field yet.
Those are my two Uber teams guys. Iíd love to post
some of yours on the guide, so e-mail them to me (e-mail
located at the bottom of the page). If theyíre good enough
to win ONE battle on Wi-Fi for me, Iíll post them on here
as soon as I can and credit you with your team. More
details on team submissions below.
IIB. No Ubers
(Currently Under Construction. More soon)
This section is dedicated to using no Ubers in any of
your teams whatsoever. No Mewtwo *tearz* but you still can
use Raikou and Latios and pokemon of that nature, because
theyíre not as good as everyone else :P. It sucks to train
them up, and itís a big olí pain in the ass to get the
right move sets, but still, itís fun to use, and wellÖhere
it is. Based off of Pokemon Coliseum.
Raikou @ Wise Glasses
Espeon @ Focus Band/Light Clay
Suicune @ Nevermeltice/Mystic Water
Umbreon (told you youíd see it again :D) @ Leftovers
Metagross @ Muscle Band
Thunderpunch (Platinum only - Move Tutor)
Typhlosion @ Salac Berry
Filler (Doesnít really matter; Throw in something you think
might be helpful)
I wonít spend much time on this team. Itís really not
all that special, but thereís been some success in the past
with this team. The basic idea is that no matter what comes
out at you, youíre going to wanna use Espeon and Raikou
first, preferably both with Timid natures, jacking their
speed higher than necessary. Light Screen and Reflect to
start off, then whittle away at their team with powerful
blasts from Psychic and Thunderbolt (Extrasensory if
Psychic rapes). Umbreon plays a similar role as the Uber
Flower Gift team, being an irritating little bastard. Donít
you just love him ^_^?
Anyway, continuing on! Raikou learns Extrasensory in
DPP, and is kind of cool. Youíll really only be using
Thunderbolt here, with an occasional Thunder Wave. Thunder
Wave sets up Umbreon nicely, and Raikou is just awesome.
Use him. Abuse him. Love him.
Espeon is much like Raikou, in a sense that itís out
there to set your guys up. If Espeon and Raikou knock
something out in the process, thatís just a bonus and chalk
it up as a victory. Shadow Ball is a special attack now,
which replaces Coliseumís bite with happiness and joy.
Although, thereís another path you can go down. Protect
with Espeon is kind of cool. A lot of people on Wi-Fi get
worried about Espeon quickly, and sometimes focus their
attacks towards it. Protect can give your ally a free beat
down session. You could swap Morning Sun out too; itís not
a necessary move.
Suicune learns the strangest moves out of the three
dogs. I have no idea why it learns Tailwind, but it makes
things very easy for you. To be honest, most of the time
Iíd take Hydro Pump over Brine, but Espeon and Raikou are
gonna leave some pokemon weakened for Suicune to Brine
upÖbut itís your call. Signal Beam = Sex and can OHKO a lot
of Psychic types blind. Seriously, do you expect a Suicune
to come out with Signal Beam?
Ah Umbreon, our paths cross again. ^_^ Iíve missed you
so. This is the Umbreon I mentioned earlier. Snatch works
well on teams similar to my A- Uber team, because you can
steal moves like Guard Swap and Thunder Wave. It works well
sometimes, but some would argue that youíd be better off
with protect. Iíve had my Umbreon snatch a dying Mewtwoís
recover. It was a happy day. I almost lost that one. Same
old song and dance here, though. If you want to feed off of
Raikouís Thunder Wave, donít bother with Toxic and give it
Guard Swap or Moonlight.
Metagross should be an Uber, but itís not. I have no
clue why. Meteor Mash hurts everything, even if itís not
very effective. It gets Zen Headbutt now, which has a
chance to flinch, but you wonít have to worry about that.
It wonít be faster than much, even with Tailwind active.
Thunderpunch is just a ďUh oh, help me.Ē move. It hurts
things when nothing else does. Explosion is one of my
favorite moves. I love when it goes boom, and Umbreon
protects. Also, you can use it in a partnership with
something else. And itís name isÖ
Typhlosion. ďEnduversalĒ FTW. In Coliseum, I couldnít
use anything but Flamethrower and Dig. DPP helped this poke
out a lot. Eruption? For real? Awesome. Anyway, that move
and whatever you decided to be your filler are gonna be the
only moves you use besides reversal, so Blast Burn or
Eruption are good ways to go. Earthquake is always an
option as a filler, but I used Focus Punch. Two high power
moves that arenít usually ever used. Just an emergency poke
here, Iím sure there are better.
Overall - A
I couldnít believe it. This team of all teams beat my Flower
Gift team. Not just once or twice. Every single time those
teams faced off, this team won the fight. It even beat the
all Uber team more than once. I had to give it an A
compared to my other teams. For some reason, itís hard to
break through reflect and light screen at the same time.
Tailwind works like something fierce, and Power Swapping
with my Quiet Suicune had it single-handedly defeating
pokemon on the Uber team. It killed Mewtwo in one Signal
Thatís the number 1 non-uber team Iíve used so far. I
tried making a similar team from XD, but letís just say it
ended horribly and leave it at that. That game leaves you
so ill-prepared for the outside world, youíre better off
keeping that sissy team inside Orre where it belongs.
Although, the Medicham and Tyranitar you get from there are
SWEET, but not unique. They just have good egg moves.
Anyways, thatís three teams so far. Iím working on a second
Uber team right now, and I should have it up by the time
the Version 1.1 is ready to go.
This next team is one of the first submissions I've
had that actually worked. It was a bit shocking really, as
I never really liked combinations like this. But, it worked,
so here it is.
Bronzong: Lum Berry (Needs Levitate)
Tyranitar: Chople Berry
Camerupt: Passho Berry (Solid Rock is better)
Magnezone: Shuca Berry
Mirror Shot/Flash Cannon (Mine knows Mirror Shot because
I didn't want to use the one use TM Flash Cannon yet)
Gliscor: Brightpowder/Lax Incense (With Sand Veil)
Torterra: White Herb
"Okay, the strategy for my party is pretty self-explanitory,
use Trick Room and then kill your opponents as you move
first, but there are some subtle (and not so subtle) elements
in this party that make it deadly. One of these elements is
the use of wide-range moves and working so they don't hit your
partner or don't hit it hard. (Torterra is very resistant to
Earthquake). Another is the use of Flinch through Bronzong's
Extrasensory and Tyranitar's Rock Slide as well as Camerupt's
Rock Slide. I don't use Camerupt's Rock Slide often though
The first two Pokemon that should be sent out (generally) are
Bronzong and Tyranitar or Camerupt, whichever better fits in
type-wise against the opponent as you get to see their party
beforehand. The key is to use Protect and hope that your
opponent attacks Tyranitar or Camerupt, and they do little to
Bronzong, letting it use Trick Room. The Lum Berry comes in
handy against those who may disrupt Bronzong's Trick Room (TR)
like Darkrai with Dark Void. It also helps with its Resting
if it needs it.
My Tyranitar (nicknamed Mr. T) is the base of this party
besides TR because with the Chople Berry it almost never goes
down in one hit. It usually takes out Pokemon that get a hit
on it by the next turn, or its partner does anyway.
Magnezone is probably my least used Pokemon because Torterra
has a more diverse type move pool, but it is armed with Toxic
to take out annoying stalling Pokemon (Umbreon, anyone?).
Gliscor is mainly in my party for Earthquake and Discharge
absorbing, but its main weapon is Ice Fang to damage Dragons.
It might be better with a Yache Berry instead of accuracy
reducing items, but I like the increased possibility of an
evaded attack especially with its Double Team if nothing else
is useful at the time.
Torterra is probably put into all of my foursomes in PBR
because of the type coverage it has against so many Pokemon.
The White Herb gives it an option of Superpower or
Leaf Storm, and I rarely need both.
Weaknesses in this Party: The time it lost in PBR, Bronzong
got a Critical Hit on it from a Fire Punch by a Slaking.
Yes, do not let Bronzong die before it uses Trick Room.
Otherwise a lost is almost certain. Also, the fact that
everyone but Bronzong has a double weakness is also a
problem. This is where wide range moves and ganging up help
eliminate pokemon that could exploit these weaknesses
Overall Grade - C
I originally gave this team a B-, but after some work on it,
I realized how much it could gain and how much room there is
to grow from this. I found Camerupt and Torterra to be close
to worthless in this team. It did happen to beat my Uber
team up there with a Critical Hit Crunch ending Mewtwo's
life. Ah well. Anyway, this team could benefit from a better
moveset and some better pokemon. I replaced Camerupt with
Heatran and Torterra with Shuckle. I also tried Porygon-Z
in place of Magnezone, and it worked out pretty well too.
Porygon-Z was my second TR user, and had Discharge as well,
making it an easy replacement for the weakness prone
Magnezone. Tyranitar really doesn't need EQ, but as of this
update, I'm not sure what a good replacement would be. I'm
thinking Ice Punch but I'm not sure. Overall, good team,
fun to play with, with lots of room to grow. Use this as a
starting point and move forward with it. Also, TAUNT RAPES
THIS TEAM. Hardcore. Like no other. It's kinda hard to get
a TR off when Taunt is being used on your uber slow poke.
Okay, so you know how I told you all the items I
suggested to be on each pokemon? Well this is basically
gonna be me telling you where the items can be found.
Pretty simple really. Battle Frontier/Park in
Platinum/Diamond & Pearl. All of the items not there, such
as the Wise Glasses, are found throughout the game itself.
The Salac Berry can be bought off of PBR itself, from the
main game, and a lot of the items in question can be too.
So there it is. Not too hard to get them really, just play
the game. If you have any specific questions, Iíll answer
them personally, or you can look at any item FAQ on
IV. Other Little Advice
Obviously, I donít expect you to use my team verbatim
as I have it on here. This guide is supposed to be
developed to give you some ideas for a team of your own. If
you use my team, Iíd be thrilled to hear about your success
with my team ideas, how you created a team of your own, or
anything of the sort. Basically, if you do something
different with my teams, you do so at your own risk. They
have success in the Wi-Fi battles, and you really shouldnít
stray from it unless you know itíll work better for your
type of battling. I gave some hints of creating your own
team. Just know this: the successful teams that win in
double battles are teams built around not just one
strategy, but multiple. Keep this in mind as you build a
team to dominate the Wi-Fi battles.
V. What NOT To Do
Once again, this is just advice. Donít hurt me ^_-
- Donít use pokemon from Red, Blue, and Yellow (1st
generation). 90% of them canít compare to the more recent
generations. The only ones you should use are any that have
a new stage (Rhyperior, Electivire, etc.), Dragoniteís
family, any legendary, or Jolteon. Otherwise, thereís a
poke thatís got a better moveset or stat set.
- Donít use items that work for one move. That only hinders
YOU. The only item you should use for one move is one of
the choice items, which forces you to use that one move
over and over again for more power or speed or whatever.
You need items that work for you in a better way.
- Spam items like the Wise Glasses and the Muscle Belt on
every team. Thereís at least one pokemon that uses all
physical and special attacks. Donít equip the Muscle Belt
to someone whoís more deep with moves unless itís a boost
you feel is necessary.
- Most Ubers are good to go without EV training. All non
-Ubers I would suggest you start from level 1, as I said
earlier in the guide, but itís not necessary to build your
team. It just makes them better if you raise them from an
earlier level. Besides, thatís the point of the game, guys.
VI. Legal Stuff
Basically, this guide is mine, not yours. Donít try
and use it for your own writing or for monetary value
without my consent or legal procedures will be made. You
can use it for yourself and you can share it with words,
but if I find out that youíre using it as your own, thatís
when things get messy. Please donít do it. I donít wanna be
the bad guy. As of now, GameFAQs is the only site Iíve
given permission to present this guide, and no other site
or person(s) may use it without written consent by the
All Pokemon names and games are property of Game Freak

VII. Contact Information and Team Submission Information
There are a ton of ways you can get a hold of me, but
the best way is through instant messaging. I have AIM and
Yahoo and you can reach me at LXchargersXT for AIM and
Sportsfan15100 for Yahoo. You can also e-mail me at
Garrymundy@yahoo.com because I check that everyday as
For team submissions, Iíd like it if you sent them
through the e-mail I gave above. Tell me all SIX of your
pokemon (no less) and you may have one optional pokemon,
but list why itís there and who it replaces. Tell me what
your strategy is, and how each pokemon uses each of itís
moves, so I know exactly how to recreate it. Throw natures
in there if you wish, and tell me how you trained if you
want it done right. If it wins just one battle on Wi-Fi or
manages to beat one of the 3 teams Iíve listed so far as
samples, Iíll post it on the guide for everyone to see and
oh and ah at. You will, of course, be given all the credit
for the idea, and it will help improve the guide and
everyoneís pokemon playing abilities as well. Thank you in
advance. Also, if you have anything that you would like me
to add or any questions, feel free to e-mail me as well and
Iíll add a FAQ section for people that may have similar
