Preparing for E4 - Team Advice

I’m doing a hard mode playthrough, trying to use all deltas for the E4 and post game. I’ve used all deltas so far except relying on some non-deltas in early game and using Machamp and Crobat for a few key fights until the dream realm.

Looking for team advice given what I currently have. All are at level 98 (level cap atm).

I’m open to item suggestions, Ability suggestions, and EV allocation suggestions.

I’ve been very Offensively focused throughout the game, but I’m looking to change some movesets around to make my team more balanced and equipped for the E4 onward.

i suggest using a delta hydragon with lifeorb and hypervoice instead of the muk


I can get you an adamant delta munchlax, a timid delta ralts, and a timid Delta Bulbasaur

Set means you don’t get to swap after KO.

The nature on those three mons aren’t very good

So it automatically goes to the next in party?

Thanks for the offer, but I probably won’t look to change natures until later. I want to try breeding on my own since I’ve never done it before, and I’ll need to wait till post-E4 to do that. But thanks!

No, sorry, after you KO an opponent, you don’t have the option to swap out.

Yeah, it just lets the opponent immediately switch out without giving you any option to say yes or no. You don’t get the option to switch out inbetween, you just don’t switch out at all. If you want to switch out, you have to either use some switch out move, like Baton Pass, U-Turn or Volt Switch, or switch out yourself, risking some form of damage to the switch out Pokémon, either from the opponent or hazards


Yeah, which is much more fair.

u could build a weather team

What weather would work for these? Were you thinking Rain?

That works, Noctem and Rain are the best 2 weathers.

D snorlax(leftovers) could do BD,drain punch,earthquake and wood hammer
d pidgeot is just not good
vespiqueen could be used as a pvot if there is a tutor for it
D Venu can use CM,psychic,moonblast,shadow ball
Idk about D gard
replace bulldoze with a coverage move since rocktomb is doing same job here
Maybe gunkshot?
