• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    Looks rad. Pretty well balanced. I haven't narrowed my team down to 6 yet. I just arrived at the observatory and my team looks something like: -Incineroar -Lycanroc (Dusk) -Arbok -Butterfree -Mantine -Magneton -Kirlia -Marshtomp -Tsareena -Trevenant As far as narrowing it down goes, I'm...

    The In-Game Team Advice Thread

    I think it's because your team is perfectly fine. For an in-game team, it should be solid enough. Though I have a couple little things. 1. Blaziken - Slash is meh. You already have two great STAB moves. I'd give it Aerial Ace instead for extra type coverage, or a stat boosting move. 2. Zapdos -...

    If you haven't used one before, I'd definitely suggest catching a Goomy. Goodra is nice. Unless you absolutely want Tyrunt and not another Dragon. I'd also suggest Helioptile. He's fast and a good special attacker with a decent ability, and pretty good move coverage iirc, even though he's a...

    If I could make a suggestion, as far as Psychic types go, Alakazam (first that popped in my head) is far better than Meowstic. I used Meowstic on my first playthrough and I was disappointed. And Xerneas isn't until near the end of the main game, of course. Sylveon is a great Fairy type to have...

    Re: How is my team? Overall, looks like a fantastic team for in-game. Very well rounded. As long as you cover the types absent from your team by giving those typed moves to your members, you'll be good. (Example, Psychic and Energy Ball would work fantastic on Chandelure for type coverage).

    Re: The In-Game Team Review Thread If I could make some suggestions on movesets: Serperior: You really don't need all three of those Grass moves. I would suggest that in addition to Cut, also get rid of Leaf Storm or Leaf Blade (Depending on if it's special attack stat is higher or lower than...

    Re: The In-Game Team Review Thread 1. Blazekin looks okay 2. Teach Breloom a Grass type attack, replacing Headbutt/Sludge Bomb 3. Not sure on Manetric, you don't really need both Electric moves. Maybe replace Thunderbolt with Thunderwave. 4. I would highly suggest replacing Water Pulse (or...

    Re: The In-Game Team Review Thread For Magnezone, I would strongly suggest Signal Beam. That Bug move will help with Dark and Psychic. Or maybe Thunderwave to get a status effect quickly to gain advantage. Aside from that, good team. Maybe a NeverMeltIce for Lanturn.

    Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here. Personally, I wouldn't use 2 bugs and 3 rocks, but to each their own, so I'll just review the pokemon. Serperior: Looks good Crustle: Don't really see why it has Aerial Ace, but aside from that, it's okay. Galvantula: Good, but I would suggest...

    Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here. Thanks for the input ;) I agree completely with Serperior, so I'll go with the physical set. Aqua Tail should be good. I wasn't sure whether to give it Aqua Tail or Leech Seed for the physical set. I'm thinking that as long as I get Magnezone, then...

    Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here. As for Ferrothorn, I would suggest picking one steel type move and removing the other for diversity/coverage. For Scrafty, I don't think Poison Jab is necessarily needed. Jellicent may already have a good poison move. I think that Bulk Up or maybe...

    Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here. I would suggest a Psychic type probably. And it would need a ghost type move like shadowball because your team has 3 weaknesses to psychic. Here's a team builder to make it easier: Pokemon.Marriland.com - Diamond / Pearl Team Builder
