Forming a Team
Before I get Pokemon Diamond, I'm forming a strong team to defeat the Elite Four. I may want to make changes as I go through the game until I eventually make it to my last badge. This is what I'm finding to be the most effective so far.
Infernape; Good against Grass, Steel, Normal, Bug
Kricketune; Good against Psychic, Dark, Grass
Abomasnow; Good against Dragon, Ground, Rock (risky), Water, Grass
Hippowdon; Good against Fire, Rock, Poison, Steel
Mismagius; Good against Ghost, Psychic
I took a good look at the teams of the E4 and the stats and learnable moves of the above pokemon. I also took into consideration of the new attack and special attack change to certain moves. This team alone could probably take out the E4 without a 6th pokemon, but I want a 6th one anyway, and a water type is what I'm thinking. I was also thinking of adding a Lopunny to my team, but after hearing bad things about it, I'm not so sure as of now. Any final suggestions or changes you think I could make, please let me know in a KIND fashion.
And yes, bug moves are super effective against darks and psychics. I've seen it myself.
So, any suggestions, let me know.
