    Default My Lineup as of Now

    I haven't put any legendaries in this team since I can't compete in Battle Frontier with them but here's what I had before Emerald crashed:



    Hitmontop

    Level 50

    Attacks:

    Bulk Up

    Mega Kick

    Endeavor

    Rock Smash




    Dragonite

    Level 56

    Attacks:

    Safeguard

    Fly

    Outrage

    Slam




    Metagross

    Level 57

    Attacks:

    Calm Mind

    Psychic

    Meteor Mash

    Strength




    Tyranitar

    Level 56

    Attacks:

    Earthquake

    Thrash

    Crunch

    Bulk Up




    Crawdaunt

    Level 60

    Attacks:

    Crabhammer

    Surf

    Guillotine

    Swords Dance




    Zangoose (yes he was shiny)

    Level 64

    Attacks:

    Agility

    Swords Dance

    Detect

    Slash

    I was thinking of replacing Hitmontop with a different fighter but I never got the chance to do that.

    I really hate you. that team is too kick ass
    When the Devil is too busy
    And Death's a bit too much
    They call on me by name you see,
    For my special touch.

    im going to rate this

    in the misc discussion

    what am i on

    people will laugh at me

    breast augmentation

    Hitmontop

    Level 50

    Attacks:

    -Bulk Up
    Substitute
    Endeavor
    Hi Jump Kick (I can't be bothered to check, but it might require breeding with the Hitmonlee / Medicham.)[/color][/b]

    Hitmontop looks badass but he can't really take shit - don't be fooled by the stats. Although Bulk Up could work with this, I can't really imagine this set sweeping the game without proper Salac Berry support (get it easily in XD).

    Dragonite

    Level 56

    Attacks:

    Dragon Dance
    Earthquake
    Rock Slide
    Wing Attack

    SubPunchBoltBeam doesn't do anything for you ingame. You're best off using your humble abilities to go for a sweep. Obviously you need DD - you mate with someone like Horsea to get it (and it's worth it). I'll say this once - breeding should be checked on Serebii.

    Metagross

    Level 57

    Attacks:
    Agility
    Psychic
    Meteor Mash
    Rock Slide

    Mmhm. Metagross doesn't get Calm Mind if I am to recall correctly.

    Tyranitar

    Level 56

    Attacks:
    Earthquake
    Ice Beam
    Crunch
    Thunderbolt

    Since this is ingame, you really don't need SubPunch, and DDTar is a bitch to prepare so really just go for all these attacks to cover like everything. Bulk Up is like stupid when we learns Dragon Dance and these other cool setup moves.

    Crawdaunt

    Level 60

    Attacks:

    Crabhammer
    Return
    filler. (Ancientpower / Crunch. =[)
    Swords Dance

    It sucks compared to Kingler, though it gets better in light of DP. Return is probably the only semi-decent physical move he learns, and it's only to be recommended in extreme circumstances, which this is.


    Zangoose (yes he was shiny)

    Level 64

    Attacks:

    Return / Frustration
    Swords Dance
    Shadow Ball
    Quick Attack

    Don't use two setup moves. Zangoose is really cool, and I'll just recommend using this as a general SD using law.

    Well I taught Metagross Calm Mind from a tm, I think I'm going to keep that in lieu of agility. I like hitmontops changes except for Hi Jump Kick, I had it before and its damage was pretty minimal. I'll replace thunderbolt with Dragon Dance on Tyranitar and Ice Beam is a nice addition. I think in the long run I'll just replace Crawdaunt with Kingler, I only captured him because he filled the dark type for me but Tyranitar takes care of that now so there's no need. Other than that it all looks good, Dragonite was a little underwhelming at the time and this should improve him. Thanks.

    Hi Jump kick is shit don't use it. Use brick break instead. If your fighter can't learn brick break then pick a different fighter.

    if your Pokemon misses when using hi jump kick, it hurts itself

    which is why I don't use it very often

    Fighting moves in general are shit. Hi Jump Kick to Brick Break is if you're willing to take the risk, but using CB fighters isn't something that's done often nowadays. We're approaching a stall point.

    Taking damage on a miss is not something i recommend, especially when the move seems to miss a lot more than it's accuracy says.

    there was a move -- I think it was dizzy punch or something -- that gets taught on an island in G/S/C, and it does a huge amount of damage if it hits, but it misses more often than it hits

    Brick Break is actually a really under rated move. But I'm replacing Hitmontop with Hitmonlee since he's a lot more bad ass.

    I've never been able to find Hitmontop on G/S/C. I searched for hours for that man in the cave who gives you the pre-evolved form of Hitmontop/lee/chan, but damn, that man is good at hiding.
