Hi. Before I begin, this team is currently in a Fourth Gen Soul Silver game. Once my White game has the E4 finished, I will be moving it onto fifth generation. Currently, the team is EV trained and nature/Ability picked. I have not attempted to use Pokemon with perfect IVs. All will be used at Lv 100. Dragonite @ ? 252 HP / 206 Spe / 52 Atk Jolly, Inner Focus (Is it possible to change his ability in dream world or will I have to retrain to get multiscale?) Outrage, Dragon Dance, Thunder Punch - (Wing Attack) - Wing attack will be removed, maybe for Ice Punch or a more reliable Physical dragon move, maybe even fire punch in case of steel types like Scizor and perl. Dragonite is a bulky damage dealer (sweeper?) in this team. I know that against everything but steel he will do a decent amount of damage. Scizor @ ? 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP Adamant Technician Swords Dance, Bug Bite, Uturn and Bullet punch I love both bug bite and Bullet punch for their STAB/Tech power of 135. Swords dance only helps to increase this. 252 Spe EVs help to allow the pokemon to outspeed things that bugs are good against, although I guess I must be wary of psychic/dark/fire/electric/water types with priority moves and bullet punchers, not that they should be using it against a steel type anyway. Staraptor @ Choice Scarf 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP Adamant Intimidate Uturn, Brave bird, Close combat and fly (he is still my utility outside of competitive play.) Should be fairly obvious in role, it takes on a leadership position and runs ahead of the line, hopefully able to outspeed in uturn choice scarf and let me set up an opponent for the fight at hand. Being a staraptor, I wouldn't be afraid to throw it away, since in the end it will die rather quickly. Alakazam @ ? 252 Sp Atk / 252 Spe / 4Def Modest, (Synchronise) Focus Blast, Psychic, Calm Mind and ? A Special coverage sweeper. Typhlosion @ ? 252 Sp Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP Rash/Mild (Blaze) Flamethrower, Eruption, (Earthquake) (Swift) A fire-type who's only here because I have him. I'd love to keep him on but he isn't the best fire type available. if you can give me a better firetype that's in OU or lower, I'll look into him. Tyranitar 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def Adamant Sand stream Earthquake, Crunch, Stone edge and stealth rock I like the tyrant. I don't know if he's any good as he is. How is this list? I don't think it works well together. I've put together pokemon I like for themselves and haven't really thought about them as a team. if anyone's willing to help me understand what I'm doing wrong, it'd be greatly appreciated!
