I want a rating of 1 out of 10 for my team. Please also tell me what types my party doesn't have a move to defeat, or any fatal flaws.

Kyurem Lvl. 87 Holds NeverMeltIce , and knows Glaciate, Fly, Draco Meteor, and Endeavor
Samurott Lvl. 88 Holds Lustrous Orb, and knows Dive, Surf, Hydro Pump, and Hydro Cannon
Stunfisk Lvl. 90 Holds Leftovers, and knows Earthquake, Flash, Thunder, and Fissure
Mewtwo Lvl. 100 Holds Quick Claw and knows Psystrike, Electro Ball, Hyper Beam, and Aura Sphere

May I have an 1 or 2 paragraph report?

Re: Can I have my team rated?

You really only need a one-sentence report, so here it is.

From now on, use this thread for your in-game teams.

3/10. Reshiram's fine, though Mist could be replaced with Psychic, Shadow Ball or Focus Blast. Zekrom's Attack is higher than it's Special Attack, so consider replacing Shadow Ball, Draco Meteor and Hyper Beam with Shadow Claw, Dragon Claw and Giga Impact (though I'd recommend Bolt Strike over Giga Impact, when you reach Lv. 100). Also, it doesn't benefit from holding the Griseous Orb (being as it's Giratina's signature item). Kyurem could be improved by replacing Glaciate with Blizzard, and Endeavor with Hail (since it looks like you're more interested in a Kyurem with Special moves). Mewtwo doesn't really need a Quick Claw, and Hyper Beam could be replaced with any number of other moves. Samurott doesn't know why he's holding the Lustrous Orb, being as he doesn't gain anything by holding Palkia's signature item. Also, Hydro Pump and Hydro Cannon could be replaced with any number of other moves to provide him with more coverage (Ice Beam or Blizzard to take advantage of Kyurem's Hail, X-Scissor or Megahorn, Dig, etc). If the accuracy of Stunfisk's moves are giving you trouble, Thunder could be replaced with Thunderbolt and Fissure could be replaced with... Anything else, really.

Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here.

After looking up the Gen I E4 on Bulbapedia, I've decided to train my team another 10 lvs to stand a chance against Blue. Hey I'll find out what I called him then. I've honestly forgotten.

I don't believe that you can go back to gen. 1 after you brought a pokemon over to gen. 2. Can you?

Good pokemon but you should fix the movesets.

Flareon- both fire spin and ember are awful moves. Fire blast and flamethrower would be bettre.

Wigglituff- you have double edge on you? replace pound, also body slam can work too.


victreebel- replace razor leaf with solar beam

dugtrio- why have both scratch and slash? replace scratch with something else if possible.

butterfree- can it learn psychic? get rid of tackle and put it on, or find something else to replace tackle.

Blastoise- how about replacing bubble with body slam if you didn't use my suggestion for wigglituff.

I like the pokemon, but once again, please work on the movesets. Need stronger moves here and there, oh and level up to mid 50s at least.

Gen I and II can trade with eachother so long as none are/know moves from Gen II.

Thanks for the advice.
Many of these low powere moves are from smaller number of moves in Gen I. This is my first run on Gen I so I wasn't exactly making expert choices.
By looks of things Dugtrio has a tiny movepool. I think I'd be more comfortable if I did delete Flash from Wigglytuff. Feels like I need more TMs as all damage dealing TMs Dugtrio can learn are normal.
Again thanks for your help.

Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here.

I'm just before the last gym and I would like an evaluation of my team and I need help finding a suitable 6th team member. I'm on White, and have played Black twice in the past without much success with the E4, as my teams are always hopeless... :( I know nothing whatsoever about EVs or IVs or natures, so if you have any tips or anything, they would be more than welcome!

When you are done all the training you need for Gurdurr you should consider giving it eviolite. Out of everyone on your team it can abuse it best. Will become very physically defensive bulky. If you are before the last gym you should try to catch an ice type for it if you can for your 6 poke.

Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here.

Thanks very much! I'll start looking for a Beartic or a Cubchoo. I'm also wondering, should I train a Pawniard/Bisharp for the E4 or have you got any better ideas? Is it worth evolving my Pansear?

EDIT: Also, could I please have an evaluation of my Diamond team for the E4? I haven't played for a while and it has a lot of room for improvement.

Yeah, they mainly fail in terms of moves, especially the ones with HMs... I can get through Aaron and Bertha all right, and Flint isn't too difficult but Lucian is currently impossible. Anyone know where the move deleter is in Sinnoh? Which items should I give my Pokémon?

Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here.

evolve monferno and get a little more coverage on staraptor. i don't remember the levels very well, so a nice round 50 might be good on all of them.

Re: Please Rate My Team

Oh a Old - Red version team.

I first change Rhydon Fury Attack for Body Slam, Horn Drill are banned so i put Rock Slide; in Zapdos i try with Drill Peck for Sky Attack or Fly, Arcanine Body Slam > Take Down, and Venusaur > Vileplume, better in all maybe you can use a Alakazam or Gengar for the banned Mew.
