    This thread is pretty simple to use.You simply must post your Pokemon, Natures, Moves and EVs.There is an EV checker cheat code so you can check your EVs but if you are using the team for only in game uses and not competitive then EVs are not necessary (but still try and get them).Anybody can rate a team and you cannot make posts like "please rate" etc. Alright so you guys can start.I actually have a team that needs rating but I'll post it later.

    Platinum team:

    Infernape Lv 42 (Mach Punch, Close Combat, Flame Wheel, Thunderpunch)
    Luxray Lv 41 (Bite, Spark, Charge, Leer (I think))
    Gardevoir Lv 39 (Magical Leaf, Psychic, Confusion, Calm Mind)
    Gliscor Lv 39 (Thunder Fang, Aerial Ace, Dig, Night Slash)
    Lairon Lv 39 (Meteor Mash, Iron Head, Iron Defense, Take Down)
    Staraptor Lv 39 (Drill Peck, Aerial Ace, Close Combat, Fly)


    I replaced Lairon's Metal Claw with Meteor Mash and Staraptor's Defog with Drill Peck using PokeSav.

    Tip:get rid of leer and all that defense lowering stuff and never use 2 of the same type attacking move on a pokemon and replace flame wheel with fire blast or flasmethrower

    What the hell kind of tips are those?

    Infernape's Attack is better than its Special Attack and STAB makes Lairon's Iron Head and Luxray's Spark more deadly.

    Even so fire blast will do more damage than flame wheel if you wanna rebel against me and use a physical move go with fire punch or flare blitz
    STAb is good but why 2+ same type moves? Get a PP up max on just one good one

    Fire Blasts PP: 5.
    Flame Wheels PP: 25.

    Eruption is also better then Fire Blast.

    Eruption only is good when you are in good health
    and with PP up you can get 8 Pp
    8pp
    120 Power

    Is better than

    22 pp
    60 Power

    EDIT:If you really wanan fight tell me whats wrong with flamethrower?
    18 PP
    100 Power

    Fire Punch is 75 power and 15 PP, compared to 60 power and 25 PP. Not worth it.

    Infernape will just learn Flare Blitz later on, so I don't even think I need to change anything. Close Combat would be the first move to go since it has low PP and makes my Infernape's Defense stats fall.

    Lairon has two Steel type moves because both of them have good power (100 for Meteor Mash and 80 for Iron Head).

    And infernape has some really great defenses that save it from some strong hits?, its frail and cant even take neutral effective hits anyways thats why close combat is recommended.And you actually use 18pp + of the same move in a battle?

    So if I have Fire Blast, Flamethrower and Euruption I put them all on because they have good power?
    You need to be diverse with move sets

    i have personnally:

    Haxxorus: adamant , 252 ev in att and speed muscle band (ability mold breaker)
    Dragon dance
    Dragon claw/outrage (cant decide which)
    earthquake
    rock slide

    Snorlax: sassy, ev 252 sdef, 140 hp 112 att leftovers (ability thick fat)
    rest
    sleep talk
    earthquake
    body slam

    Although he get a steel move based on the weight but i dont think it would be good as steel is a defensive type and not really offensive. If you have a good set for snorlax other than a sleep talker which is a classic (although the worry seed could be a hinderance)

    Zorua: Timid, ev 252 satt, 252 speed (no idea for item choice yet)
    U turn
    grass knot
    focus blast
    night burst


    So my question is what 3 others would complete those 3 , i have an abagoura (the ancient turtle you ge from the fossil) water/rock type great att and def, ok to crappy sdef but slow and it has the solid rock ability which is not bad but still.

    I thought of ferrothorn looks like an only defensive type with a unique typing and nice moves but yet so many moves.

    The biggest concern here are these two. They aren't bad Pokemon, but they are more designed to tailor to UU play. I imagine that a combo of Blaziken/Heatran with Zapdos/new flying electric type (forgot the name) would be better.
