Hey I'm kinda new in the forums, been a big fan of Pokemon for quite some time now (10 years if I'm not mistaken).
Would like your opinion on my new Pokemon team for Platinum.
Here they go...
EV's: 4 HP, 252 Speed, 252 Attack
Usually start with Fake Out, breaks Focus Shash, Ice Punch is a great Stab and usually OHKO on super-effective, Taunt is great against Teams that set up Entry Hazards and/or Pokemon that go for gained stats. Punishment is... really great! You must be thinking it sucks with Taunt, but if Weavile is not my lead or in Doube Battles, if someone has been Calm Minding/Swords Dancing, it will probably give them a OHKO, and 60 isn't much different from the 75 Night Slash if no stats gains on foe.
Habiltiy: Natural Cure
Nature: Modest (Maybe Should've went for Timid with 252 Speed instead of Sp. Defense?)
EV's: 4HP, 252 Sp. Attack, 252 Sp. Defense
My Support Pokemon, it can be hit by a special move without dying, Yache Berry makes it able to sustain an Ice Beam and still be above 50% HP, Leaf Storm... Hurts! Stun Spore, is really great against fast pokemon, and is a really nice Status problem, Aromatherapy is great when someone decides to Poison, Burn or whatever my Pokemon, it has saved me a lot of times. Extrasensory is somewhat of a filler, but is really great for the flinch (works good with stun spore)
Hability: Inner Focus (Maybe Steedfast would be best with Modest?)
Nature: Modest (Maybe Timid would work best with Inner Focus?)
EV's: 4HP, 252 Sp. Attack, 252 Speed
A Special Sweeper, I was using Choice Scarf, but Expert Belt seems to work better, since people do use a lot of Pokemon Types these days, and Lucario does cover a lot of Pokemon. I think I don't really need to go in detail about the moves right? Dragon Pulse however, aside it's use for KO Dragons, only has 1 type that resists it, and it does have a Power of 90.
Dusknoir@Shell Bell (hmmm)
EV's: 252HP, 128 Sp. Defense, 128 Defense
Annoyer/Tank it works really well in Double Battles, haven't tested in single though. Thunder Punch covers what the rest of my team can't, Will-o-Wisp cripples Sweepers (burn = 1/2 attack) and is a good status problem, Taunt works great against recover, amongst other things, Pain Split... I really thought it would recover more HP with it... but in double battles it does work good, has saved my Lucario, and does work really well with Umbreon.
EV's: 252HP, 252 Sp. Defense, 4Attack
I love this little guy, i've been able to smash 3 pokemon with him alone in doubles, he just soaks every special attack and seems to take little damage. Toxic, obviously makes him an Annoyer, Wish+Protect = more PP than Moonlight and more turns for toxic to take effect, Payback, it does hurt if you hit him first :P
Hability: Marvel Scale
EV's: 252HP, 252, Sp. Defense, 4 Defense
Well I don't really know what to do with Milotic, and was kind of thinking about replacing him with Vaporeon. He does soak up hits quite well after flame orb gets in effect, bad thing is... Burn does quite some damage, even after Aqua Ring(that's why it's there), Recover is obvious, Water Pulse does wonders sometimes with the confusion status, however, overall I usually put my Milotic on the bench, even though I do love him.
Any comments are welcome, any new ideas about replacing some pokemon as well, the only Pokemon I think I would hardly change would be Umbreon and Weavile aside from that, anything would be great :)
Thank You for reading, and thank's in advance for any advice.
