My teams for Pokemon Black and Heart Gold are in my sig (haven't updated them in a couple of weeks though...).

I got the idea for this thread because I'm currently playing Pokemon Black and got to a tough decision. I realized I'm being incredibly stupid with my team selection by having 4 dragons in it (Dragonite, Hydreigon, Haxorus, Reshiram) and am trying to pick a single dragon type for my team rebuild. I've narrowed it down to Dragonite and Hydreigon but am having trouble picking as each has its own advantages over the other. I was wondering what you all think on the matter. I've settled on including Samurott and Galvantula in my new team build but am open to suggestions for other Pokemon. I'd include Victini but unfortunately I didn't get the game in time to capitalize on that promotion.

I only just booted up my Gameboy earlier today, I played a bit of Pokemon Gold, I definitely had a great team.

My team was:

Mew
Vaporeon
Flareon
Jolteon
Espeon
Umbreon

They were all level 99 and had different elemental strengths and weaknesses, because they were considered "normal" type they didn't have any other weaknesses either.

Good times, I don't know how the hell I got Mew though.

Funny coincidence! I bred 5 Eevee in my Heart Gold game today (and am keeping my original 6th as Eevee) and was planning on getting all the evolutions available (the ones you've listed above).

Heh heh, I kept an original Eevee too, and I found that to be one of the funnest parts of Pokemon, creating all the evolutions of Eevee, Espeon and Umbreon confused the hell out of me though.

It sucks because in the original, you can only buy one fire stone, one water stone etc. (though there are ways around it)

Is it different in Heart Gold? I would have played Heart Gold and found out for myself but I haven't got a DS and I've only just realised how much I miss Pokemon.



Snivy is the best pokemon

My team in black

Serperior
Dragonite
Metalgross
Laturn
Rampardos
Houndoom

I want to get lavitar and natu but I already have too many joto pokemon. Might too it anyway but I need a natu

In HeartGold (AFAIK... I'm still not done it and I haven't played it for all that long) you can't buy the stones. To be fair I've only been looking for a thunderstone (I wanted a Joltean to actually use in my party) but you can't buy them anywhere and I don't recall seeing the other stones anywhere either. I guess you just get them from trainers who call you up when they find something.

You should really get a DS if you're missing Pokemon. Pokemon Black is excellent! It's my favourite Pokemon game since Blue.

What's your take on my Hydreigon/Dragonite issue (see OP)?

I was going to put Hygreigon in my team but the elite 4 easily beat it as the champion and 2 others easily beat it.

Though Dragonite is good its really only good for having a lack of weekness.(only dragon and ice. Though ice is instant kill)  Hygreigon  is good as a dark type since its can counter bug types and has a high special attack. It all depends on which type you need/want. If you want flying type dragon go for dragonite  and if you want a dark type get Hydreigon. They are both good really.

Keep an eye on the Pokeathlon prize exchange, you can purchase the stones there with the points you earn.




My final team (compiled with advice and help from our dearly departed Smeags) for White ran thus;

Emboar
Krookodile
Swanna
Zekrom
Celebi
Weavile

Each one was at level... 80 i think. I forget exactly, but together they made short work of Alder and Cynthia. I was quite impressed with the team overall, since it covered so many bases (you've got elemental affinities of Fire, Fighting, Ground, Dark, Water, Flying, Dragon, Electric, Grass, Psychic, and Ice, with Dark being the only overlap). Should perhaps have built it up to level 100, but that was too daunting a task with too pointless a reward
