Just saying, this Elite Four Team is gonna be so sick might actually be one of the hardest to beat

I wanted good type coverage with the secondary types. Plus I think they're kinda cool Ghost types.

NurseTaric

Finally another poison type enjoyer. Was personally thinking i would have a ghastly in my first gym leader team just to mess up the abundance of normal type moves often seen in early game. Also love the E4 team. I think a strategy involving trying to set up poison spikes and maybe stalling a little (not to extreme to keep it fun for the player) would work pretty well for a later game team.

I was scrolling through waiting for poison haha

Seco4800

Magmar is quite the powerhouse early game. That'll be a challenging first gym. But I'm always down for a challenge.


Jackeroni216

It could be like later in the game like Sw/Sh was.


Seco4800

True. Honestly the entire first half of Sw/Sh is a blur. I should replay them, sometime


Toxoctopus

This does seem like a pretty buff 1st gym. Single evos (don't @me about Magmortar) tend to have strong early stats, but this definitely seems doable, in the right circumstances. I've always wanted a good game that gives you a Rod almost immediately for access to some extra water types.


cat-stuff

Maybe for the first gym swap out Magmar for it's pre-evolution Magby? Little more doable for the first gym 😁

Let me know what you think and what could be improved, I tried to cover weaknesses as best a possible but for most dragon types it's not easy to get around the ice, dragon, and fairy weakness.

This turned out to be way more high effort than i expected it'd be. ​ Type: Rock My character will hail from Alola, probably the one region where Rock-type trainers have the most infamy due to the incredibly powerful and respected (lore-wise anyways) Olivia, the first time any Rock-type trainer has been anything more than an early-game joke. This will also give me access to Alolan forms, and an Alolan ace, particularly Minior, which will be my ace in all fights. ​ 1st Gym (TM: Sandstorm) * Roggenrola (Sturdy) lv. 13 - Tackle | Stealth Rock | Mud-Slap | Sandstorm * Minior (Shields Down, Indigo Color) lv. 15 - Defense Curl | Rollout | Confuse Ray | Sandstorm Minior will be holding an Oran Berry. A good first gym will either teach or force to use basic mechanics of the game. Using multiple pokemon and switching out to remove volatile statuses will be a borderline requirement to get past this, as the debuffs will allow Minior to set up an absolutely devastating Rollout combo otherwise, especially if its shell is broken. Sandstorm is an extremely powerful tool for giving both of them more durability, as starters usually only have special STAB moves this early on. I also made sure to not pick any pokemon with 4x weaknesses for this team specifically. Want to leave an impression on the player, because 1st Rock gyms are too goddamn common. Let's do something \*good\* with this concept for once. Abysmal coverage is the weakness of this team. Minior doesn't even have Flying STAB yet, so getting a better team than me and using switches is what gets you the win. The Trainer School will teach you all of this if you go there, and you'll even be given advice by Nurse Joy to go there and read up on volatile statuses if you get beaten by me specifically. Oddly, this is probably the team design i'm the proudest of. ​ 4th Gym (TM: Rock Slide) * Boldore (Sturdy) lv. 31 - Stealth Rock | Rock Slide | Headbutt | Sandstorm * Graveler-A (Sturdy) lv. 30 - Thunder Punch | Rock Slide | Self-Destruct | Steamroller * Minior (Shields Down, Indigo Color) lv. 33 - Ancient Power | Take Down | Rock Slide | Acrobatics There will be no held items in this fight. Far less of a gimmick team, pokemon now have an, albeit fairly neutered, form of their usual fighting strategies. The use of Sturdy to keep giving the team turns even in overwhelming odds is used twice, both for Boldore to set up and for Alolan Graveler to take down a pokemon you're trying to sweep with with Self-Destruct and the strongest coverage in the team. In the context of the pokemon single-player campaign, Acrobatics is HORRIFYING. I remember I was playing a romhack that was otherwise fairly standard difficulty-wise, then i came across a Flying type gym leader that swept my team with it. And that's because, with no held item, it has **110 base power**. As such, with it, Minior remains a very powerful pokemon, and remains the team's ace. It's also the team's only counter to a Ground-Type threat. As such, the strategy of this team basically revolves around being fully aware that the fight can end in seconds - And destabilizing your team quickly to set up its own sweeper to take control. ​ 8th Gym (TM: Stone Edge) * Gigalith (Sand Stream) lv. 50 - Stealth Rock | Stone Edge | Body Press | Heavy Slam * Golem-A (Galvanize) lv. 51 - Return | Stone Edge | Explosion | Steamroller * Cradily (Storm Drain) lv. 50 - Stockpile | Giga Drain | Sandstorm | Sludge Bomb * Relicanth (Sturdy) lv. 50 - Aqua Tail | Stone Edge | Bounce | Flail * Minior (Shields Down, Indigo Color) lv. 53 - Shell Smash | Stone Edge | Earthquake | Acrobatics Minior is holding a White Herb. In short, this theme strengthens the theme of the previous one, and finds two pokemon for the niche the team was missing, that being genuine ground counters. Fundamentally, this team is now complete. Gigalith has Sand Stream, firmly setting its role as the setup master. Golem-A is a reckless killer, with the strongest Explosion in all of Pokemon ready to cripple your team for a follow-up, Cradily is a bulky setup set with heals from Giga Drain, Relicanth is one of the more gimmicky team members mostly set up to , and Minior went has a full on competitive moveset and held item to give a STRONG impression, even this late in the game. ​ Elite Four Sandstorm is PERMANENTLY FORCED in this fight, unless countered. Once other weather conditions end, Sandstorm will return as well. * Gigalith (Sand Force) lv. 59 - Stealth Rock | Stone Edge | Heavy Slam | Earthquake * Golem-A (Galvanize) lv. 59 - Double Edge | Stone Edge | Explosion | Steamroller * Cradily (Storm Drain) lv. 59 - Stockpile | Giga Drain | Meteor Beam | Sludge Wave * Relicanth (Sturdy) lv. 59 - Aqua Tail | Head Smash | Bounce | Earthquake * Crustle (Sturdy) lv. 59 - Shell Smash | X-Scissor | Stone Edge | Earthquake * Minior (Shields Down, Indigo Color) lv. 60 - Shell Smash | Stone Edge | Earthquake | Hidden Power (Grass) Gigalith is holding a Weakness Policy. Golem-A is holding an Air Balloon. Cradily is holding a Power Herb. Crustle is holding a White Herb. Relicanth is holding an Assault Vest. Minior is holding Rockium Z. The least changed in terms of moveset and team composition, mostly because the two are really close together. Despite me imposing quite a few limitations on 8th gym teams, such as not overdoing it on TM moves, most movesets were already extremely solid. The biggest differences are perma-sandstorm, which changed the movesets of a few diferent pokemon to fit that, and taking full use of held items. No holding back. Decided to keep Megas away from the team, mostly because I don't think any Rock-type megas really fit the team without completely overshadowing my ace. Instead, I went for a Z-move! Rockium Z is the other competitive set Minior uses, it's far more explosive and less stable, but still very strong, and still bound to leave enough of an impression to remain a worthy ace, even if it's possibly no longer the strongest pokemon of the team.
