Okie doke, I have a new team, and the only use I need to make of said team is to beat my three friends and become the best of us all (simple in overview, hard in action) Anyway, I was wondering if there are any obvious problems that present themselves to all you smogon users out there that I am not aware of. I don't have/care to level my pokemon up to level 100, but I will be reaching the 70-early 90 mark. I have no intention of using the typical smogon tiers of order, but i do refrain from using anything regarded as "UBER" anyway, onto my team. I'm using Pokemon Pearl, but I'm considering making a transfer to Pokemon Heart Gold (a transfer of my team) Also, I don't care much for the nature of my pokemon, so this will go without mention, though all of my team has been hatched and raised from the egg. I have a level 73 Leafeon it holds a big root. it currently knows the moves, Synthesis (which will soon be replaced by swords dance when leafeon reaches 78) giga drain, (hence the big root) energy ball, (a high damage special atack) and leaf blade. (leafeons best move with its high attack stat and swords dance) I have a level 62 Machamp. It holds a zoom lens, knows low kick, (most of my friends poekmon are large and heavy) seismic toss (some of my friends pokemon are of a high level) Cross Chop (this is just ace) and dynamic punch (to confuse and stall, because machamp is an easy knock out) I have a level 77 Ninetales, it holds a flame plate, knows extrasensory, fireblast (hence the flame plate) will-o-wisp (just to be frustrating after its death) and dark pulse (to deal with one of my friends who percieves it acceptable to use mewtwo) I have a level 66 scizor, it holds an insect plate knows wing attack (it won't learn air blade from the move remeberer for some annoying reason) X-scissor (hence the insect plate) Iron Head (for a STAB boost) and swords dance (for another boost to stats.) I also have a Gengar, level 63, who wields a life orb, knows hypnosis, Dream Eater, (to compensate for the life orb) Shadow Ball (this recently replaced nightmare when I realised my oponents kept switching their pokemon when put to sleep) and dark pulse. I also finally have a starmie level 69, It knows Psychic, Thunder, (for a shock) Blizzard, (against the many dragon types around my friends teams) and Water Pulse. (I would use surf, but this hinders my ally pokemon because we always use double battles) I'm considering retraining a staryu (currently 45), because my Starmie can't seem to remember the move hydro pump from its previous form. - SUPER frustrating. Anyway, what do you guys think? I've been running this team through the pokemon league again and again, hoping for this training to pay off. And if you guys do suggest something, could you tell me where to get the TM/Item necessary? I have access to a few far played editions of daimond and pearl, as well as battle revoloution, as well as a little played heart gold. I suppose I can also get some extra TMs from my friends, but otherwise, I'm all alone. can you transfer pokemon to black and white? just wondering... THANKYOU!
