    Hello all!!! Well ive been in basic combat trainig for the US army. for the last three months and ive kindof lost touch with all the updates of the Pokemon world. My old team has been serving me well so far but i still feel like it can do better. can anyone plz help me with this issue???

    Magnus (Mamoswine) (F) @ Focus Sash
    Trait: Thick Fat
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Shard
    - Endeavor
    - Stealth Rock
    I REALLY like this Mamoswine. imagin my surprise when i learned that it could have this set WITH Thick Fat :) I chose Mamo as a lead when i first started improving this team and he's kept with the evolution of the team so far. i dont really want to replace him BUT ill try any lead and if theyre better than him ill use him. just dont be surprised if i keep him in.


    Jellicent (M) @ Expert Belt
    Trait: Water Absorb
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Shadow Ball
    - Energy Ball
    - Ice Beam
    - Surf
    I discovered this guy can be an offensive power house with the right moveset and perdiction. With Mamo as THE perfect partner the two can slice through a team. If i replace Jelly i want to to have good synergy with Mamo or Mamo's replacement


    Heatran (M) @ Air Balloon.
    Trait: Flash Fire
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Heat Wave
    - Earth Power
    - Hidden Power [Grass]
    Heatran is also a good team mate for Mamo but most of the time he barely gets to come out and play. the trifecta of Mamo jelly and Tran all build off of each others strengths and weaknessess. so if i replace one i have to replace all.

    As a side note. i want to start playing alot of wifi battles again. so when i think of strategies im thinking in both 6 on 6 and 3 on 3. but mostly 3-3.


    Lickilicky (F) @ Sitrus Berry
    Trait: Own Tempo
    EVs: 252 HP / 16 Atk / 72 Def / 168 SDef
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Dragon Tail
    - Body Slam
    - Heal Bell
    - Wish
    this guy i liked better than chansey or blissey. I DONT CARE if theyre a better choice i HATE USEING them. so please dont suggest them. as previously stated i think in terms of 3-3 mostly and licky provided great support when it came to that. coupled with stealth rock he had enough bulk to shuffle a team to death.


    Eelektross (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SAtk
    Quiet Nature (+SAtk, -Spd)
    - Flamethrower
    - Volt Switch
    - Brick Break
    - Dragon Claw
    this is a set i thought of while in basic training. he is the most recent replacement for my previous member gliscore. the only reason i switched is because i wanted something that stayed off the ground, had a wide variety of moves, and wasnt affected that much by ice type attacks. so that was my logic behind this guy.


    Dragone (Latias) (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Levitate
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
    Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - DragonBreath
    - Recover
    - Roar
    - Calm Mind
    this is another lifer member of the team. shes served me well throughout battles but like i said i dont know what kindof great updates the BW2 metagame has to offer.

    Like i said before 3-3 is what i like best. so please keep that in mind when you critque my team. thank you all for your future input and i hope you all have great intense battles.

    Techniloom would be a problem for this team assuming latias is gone or not even being used. So I would remove jellicent in exchange for celebi. Celebi has great synergy with heatran so you won't have to get rid of it. It also works well in tandem with mamoswine since with thick fat would make have a fighting weakness only with the exception of sun boosted fire stabs but heatran can handle those. Heatran should not be using heatwave unless it is doubles. Use fire blast, Flamethrower, or lava plume depending on your preference.

    Yeah but jelly has a grass type move and with water absorb he can utilize water attacks aimed at ammo or heatran then sling a nice STAB move right back at them
