That’s done. It took me 6 tries at the Champion (twice were lost on turn 2, critical hits). Now, i am facing the Hard mode Post-Game. I only have completed the Timeless quest and managed to get all the HM Items.
Now, I want to get a new team. Arcanine feels more and more lacking and there are newly avaliable Pokémons I want to use.
So, before doing a weak worth of breeding and IV stones farming, i wanted to get advices and other feedback on what I was planing. There isn’t much change, but this is what “bother” me. I will go more specific after that small overview.
- Detla Gallade
Gardevoir @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 4 Hp / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Gardevoir is a Pokémon that I personally like very much (the first Mega I seriously build a team around in Gen 7). On this team, I use her as a Choice Scarf Revenge Killer. She prooved many time to be worthy of being in my team, destroying any Dragon type and weather sweepers against me.
Scizor @ Metal Coat
EVs: 130 HP / 252 Atk / 128 Spe
After using it in my first playthrough of the game. it was so powerfull I swore to use him in any team in this game. I don’t remember what that spread was used to, but it give me some bulk and allow me to outspeed base 60 speed and some Tyranitar variants.
Gengar @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Classic Life Org Gengar that do classic Gengar stuff. Being fast, hit hard and having an almost perfect coverage. Taunt allowed me to win key E4 maches ant other clutch battles.
Delta Gallade @ D. Galladite
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 4 Hp /252 Atk / 252 Spe
He is that I call the Nyx Destroyer. Except for single handedly defeating Nyx and Red and being freaking badass, he got that nasty STABed BoltBeam we all love. However, i was wondering if I should drop him. I have Mega Loppuny, Mega Kangaskan and Mega D.Ruingross in my mind.
Mega Loppuny is blazing fast and strong, can Fake Out on ghost types and have a true perfect coverage. Mega Kangaskan is simply the best official Mega Pokémon and Mega Ruingross is way to powerfull to be slept on whit Hone Claws and the Rock Head Smash combo. I feel like all 4 would work, but I can’t really descide what to use.
Darkrai @ Life Orb
Ability: Bad Dreams
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Taking my MVP Hydreigon’s place, he is my best shot against Double battle. One word: Dark Void.
Wait, that’s two…
Anyway, using Nasty plot in singles and Dark Void all the time, Darkrai will be a fantastik sweeper and supporter for the No Faint challenge and against Taen. He is also my favorite legendairy Pokémon beside the vastly superior Marshadow, sadly absent from the game.
This is where I hit the wall. I often got that “Sixth Pokémon Syndrom” where I can’t decide what to slap on the last teamslot.
- Primal Giratina looks a bit “cheep shot” because of how overpowered he is. I feel like battles aren’t serious anymore when I play him. My Primal Giratina have a bad nature (Lonely) so I want to avoid it if possible. Poképon sucks, no way I’ll spend 3 month farming this to possibly get a random nature change.
- Fire-type switch-in migh be possible. Bulky Talonflame is an option, so is a nice water or dragon type.
- Zygard is a viable option. The Big Boss (Dragon Dance Sweeper) looks very promissing.
- Primal Kyogre may also be interesting.
So? Any suggestions? I feel like my team is very frail, so Bulky Pokémon are welcomed.
