Pokémon Black/White in-game discussion

Has it got Acrobatics? This provides great coverage on enemies with its higher Attack stat, is stronger than Flamethrower etc. If you do a subsequent playthrough, grinding Eelektrik to get Coil Up is EXTREMELY useful. Regardless, just load it up with strong moves (Crunch, Acrobatics, Dragon Claw, Wild Charge for example).
 
Acrobatics for Darmantian you say?
Teaching it over Thrash right now...
Too bad I evolved Eelktrik to Eelktross as soon as I could (I kept the name because I liked it better than Eelktross, sorry if that confuses you)
Is there any ingame tms I could get and teach

And btw, Darmanitan doesn't learn Acrobatics, the poster was referring to teaching it to Eelektross (which imo would work really well).

EDIT: Accelgor'd -_-
 
I meant I was going to because my DS wasnt available, but now that I have it I followed comments, and now I taught it to Elektross.
I guess Im just going to grind against the Elite 4, is it just me but do these guys give massive exp, even for their level.
I dont remember in DP a pokemon giving 4000xp
 
Just beat White last night with playtime of 17 hours.

My team:

Emboar, 47: Rollout/Heat Crash/Flame Charge/Brick Break
Carracosta, 40: Aqua Jet/Smack Down/Shell Smash/Surf
Lilligant, 48: Petal Dance/Giga Drain/Sleep Powder/Quiver Dance
Galvantula, 45: Thunder/Charge Beam/Signal Beam/Agility
Krookodile, 47: Bulldoze/Foul Play/Crunch/Swagger
Sigilyph, 46: Psychic/Air Slash/Fly/Whirlwind

Lilligant was definitely my MVP in the Elite 4 and N/Ghetsis. After a Quiver Dance or two, Petal Dance hit really hard with no drawbacks (thanks to Own Tempo), and Giga Drain made her really hard to kill. Emboar was pretty strong, though I never got around to replacing Rollout. Carracosta was my least used guy; he was cool but he tended to die a lot and I ended up replacing him with Zekrom in the last two fights. Galvantula hit like a truck with Thunder, and Signal Beam destroyed the Psychic and Dark Elite 4. Krookodile was fantastic, and his Foul Play saved my butt a few times (especially the last gym, when Iris' dragons were sweeping my team and I managed to Foul Play after they had Dragon Danced 4 times. OHKO). Sigilyph was useful, but he died early in the Fighting Elite 4 before he could be much use.

Surprisingly, I beat the Elite 4, N, and Ghetsis on my first try; in the older games, I'd have to grind first 2 Elite 4 guys to get them strong enough for the last 2, and then I'd grind the Elite 4 for the Champion. Though I only beat Ghetsis due to copious amounts of Max Revives near the end.
 
searching for a Drillbur in Wellspring cave. 8(yes I counted) dustclouds, all were an item, and now no dustcloud in 10 battles. D:

EDIT: found one. And it's level 12
EDIT2: WTF. My Munna's Forewarn alerted it to RAPID SPIN. WTF
EDIT3. OMFG. crit Tackle from my Lilipup left it at very little HP (1-3, I think)
EDIT4. Checked it's nature. Naive.(+spe -sp.D) Pretty awesome.
 
Wow. Just beat the elite four. Amazing ending. I'll post my team tomorrow, because I'm going to bed now.
Black/white has such a better storyline than the last two generations.
 
According to Serebii there's a ton of trainers you can battle in the Domes in Nimbasa City. Some of the trainers have quite low-leveled Pokemon, around 30 and they're Unova-native, but the rest of them are above 60 and from any region. Can any of these trainers be battled pre-E4? Last time I went to Nimbasa City, all they did was talk to me about sports...
 
Hammer Arm just 2HKOs Scrafty, I could of it, but it Sand Attacked :/. You know the rest, it killed my Darmanitan, and with its Moxie boost it kept killing my team, with consecutive boosts, and help from a Full Restore. I got swept by it. Shame.
Anyway, I dont use items in battle because it feels like Im cheating. Yes I know the AI uses them too, but I mean look at the Battle Tower, haxy cheating. Cheating might as well happen in the Elite 4. But I really just want to test some strategies, and see if I can actually do it.
I think why Im underlevelled because I never train against wild pokemon, since I got my first badge a Repel has been on since.
My last playthrough I had the powerhouses in the form of Sawk, Conkledurr and Embroar. After seeing the ingame tier list, I actually picked the best pokemon, without even knowing they were the best.
Any advice on how to improve Eelektross
Naw I skipped wild Pokemon and I wasnt underleveled. Thats not the problem.

It's not all at once.

Post-game, you only fight the strongest teams.
 
Well after taking a break of about a week or so from White after getting bored during my 2nd playthrough of the game I just started playing again.

In Pinwheel Forest at the moment with a team of

Atlas (Dewott) Lv 18 Naughty nature
Flair (Pansear) Lv 18 Bashful nature
Sanger (Blitzle) Lv 18 Lonely nature (thanks to synchronise Munna)
Hammertime (Venipede) Lv 18 Hasty nature (with a possible 31 speed iv too)

Ever consider just ramming Scrafty with Archeops's Acrobatics? Darmanitan could have cleaned up the rest...

Otherwise give your Eelektross Acrobatics as well, another good weapon he (unexpectedly) has iirc.

Also, who seriously pays attention to in-game tier lists, people use what they like I thought for the most part lol. The concept of an in-game tier list is pretty laughable...
 
I love my Eelektross. Thunderbolt/Flamethrower/Crunch/Brick Break destroys all. Mine has equal attacking stats though, so I guess one of them has a high or low IV. I would have kept Acrobatics over Crunch but the only time I ever needed to use Acrobatics, I switched out to Archeops.
 
hey, if you get him fast enough you wont have to worry about his defense being to low because you will ko the other pokemon before he has a chance to touch you
I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but are you suggesting that speed is important on this thing? Because it isn't.

Also I don't know how i'm gonna evolve this thing. Don't know anyone else that plays. F you, stupid trade evolutions.

*looks around at the hundreds of Smogon users*

I'm sure you won't have too much problem if you ask someone, I'm sure plenty of people would like to get their trade evos done too :P
 
Pursuit doesn't work over the internet when a wild thief appears.

Anyway:

Dokkora - #532 (Adamant)
HP: 31
Att: 21, 23
Def: 31
SpA: 29
SpD: 31
Speed: 19

Best Timburr yet, but I think i'm gonna keep trying. I want higher attack.
