I am not sure if this should go under the R/S/E board or not, if i does belong there could a mod please move it there. Anyway I have trouble deciding the pokemon for teams sometimes. In Emereld I am up to the E4 but I only have 4 pokemon and need 2 more for my team. Can somebody make some suggestions. My teams as of now is...

Blaziken
- Brick Break
- Blaze Kick
- Bulk Up
- Slash

Crobat
- Air Cutter
- Toxic
- Mean Look
- Sludge Bomb

Milotic
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Recover
- Rain Dance

Flygon
- Earthquake
- Dragonbreath (Soon to be Dragon Claw)
- Crunch
- Faint Attack (Not keeping this, I am switching this out for something else later)

Keep in mind this is before the E4. Thanks :happy:

Blaziken
- Brick Break / Sky Uppercut
- Blaze Kick
- Swords Dance
- Rock Slide

Okay... use those suggestions when you get to Frontier, but the set you have for the E4 will/should bash them up pretty badly...

Crobat
- Air Cutter
- Toxic
- Mean Look
- Sludge Bomb

Umm, okay. Toxistalling died out when Substitute was created, but since this *is* ingame, sure. Later, you may consider Shadow Ball + Air Cutter + Sludge Bomb + Substitute/Quick Attack/Hidden Power Ground @Choice Band/Leftovers.

Milotic
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Recover
- Toxic / Hypnosis / Mirror Coat / Light Screen / Hidden Power Electric / Psych Up

Umm, yeah. Some people recommended Refresh + Toxic + Recover + Surf @Leftovers as a set in the early stages of 386 play (back before we had FRLG) but those died out when Substitute and Swords Dance were reintroduced so don't do it. I doubt you have Hidden Power, but on the off chance you do...

Flygon
- Earthquake
- Dragon Claw
- Crunch
- Fire Blast

It looks kind of like those tacky special Flygons, but whatever. I don't like Flygon. He works best with EQ + Rock Slide + HP Bug/Return/Quick Attack + Fire Blast @Choice Band, but the special version is unexpected if nothing else... shamefully, it is nothing else though...

I'm not sure what to do as far as teammates go. Generally I like Wish + Baton Pass Vappy or Umby for support, and since Milotic absorbs the Ice/Water attacks your attackers are weak against (and Flygon/Blaziken/Crobat subsequently absorb the Electric/Grass attacks Milotic fears) it seems well defensively... but it doesn't fare well against multiple type coverage and setup. You need a Hazer/Pseudo-Hazer.

Maybe something like Skarmory to fend off Gyarados, Snorlax and other fugly setup pokes. Swampert may also be a jerk, so something to fight him may be nice. I doubt you'll see many Swamperts ingame, but on Frontier you never know. Alakazam may also be a problem...

Yes... I recommend something to fight off those darned Psychics, Snorlax and Swampert. Maybe Weezing (Snorlax destruction and can Haze on Swampert) and Metagross/Blissey/Regice (die Zam/Gardevoir/Grumpig/etc, die!).
