    Three points.

    1 - You know how some people mercilessly rage at something for no random reason, like god programmed it into their brain for amusement?
    I FUCKING HATE MONKEYS.

    2 - I don't care about competitive battling, I just want to cover moves and sort of cover weaknesses.

    3 - I don't want to trade for or pokesav for this replacement pokemon (since it won't "be mine" even according to the game)... unless somebody knows of a way to find a pokemon's hidden ID without the use of a cheating device? I lack an action replay and none of the save backup tools I've found work on a DS.

    4 - I'm picky as to which pokemon I'll have on my team on the terms of looks. ^^;

    Now then. I've got five badges and my pokemon are ~level 38.

    Alakazam
    Luxray
    Floatzel
    Leafeon
    Staraptor
    Infernape

    I just got the Riolu egg, and I intend to replace Infernape with it (evolving Riolu to Lucario). However, that leaves me lacking two things.

    Fire moves and Cut.

    The fire moves I can sort of do without as I have Flying and Ice, but I need cut...

    So I was thinking if replacing Staraptor with Skarmory, which can learn Fly and Cut, but I can't get one for a while...

    I also wouldn't mind replacing Luxray, but there's no electric types that can learn fly I'll have easy access to. [​IMG]



    Help? I really hate monkeys. ._.

    Wait until you have access to a Skarmory, then switch Infernape to Lucario.

    Or, find a grass type that can learn Cut.

    Or, find a person you can trust, get their friend code, and get them to trade you a Skarmory and a Ditto. Then trade back.

    I agree with you on Pokemon looks. I don't like ugly Pokemon 8D.

    I know this is not what you want to hear.... but when you completed the pokemon league you can capture zapdos.... an electric flying pokemon [​IMG] .... so it is out there without cheating [​IMG].... but not on the point where you are in the game.

    EDIT: can rotom learn fly?? you can catch that also in platinum
