Does anyone have any strategies for beating the Pokemon League in HG/SS? I'm using Heracross, Skarmory, Mismagius, and Octillery. Heracross and Skamory end up dead during the battle with Will, and Octillery sometimes makes it past Koga. Mismagius and Octillery (if he survived) and up dead on Bruno's Hitmonchan.
This is a rematch, right? In that case, I'd probably suggest training a Houndoom or Honchkrow to take on Will, and then saving Skarmory for Koga and Heracross for Karen.

What were the other two Pokémon in your party?

The Eevee I got on the GTS was apparently hacked. Now, I can't even get back on the GTS... :(
I thought it was fishy.

I really hate the concept of experience groups. Pokemon you really love will fall behind because they need more experience to level up than others.

Case in point:
Gyarados (Oy, training Magikarp... :roll: )
Gardevoir/Gallade
Aggron
Starmie (Of all things, Nintendo, you have to put Starmie in the Slow Group)
Houndoom
Arcanine
Every pseudo-legendary
Almost all legendaries (Event ones except Gen 5 one are lucky)

And then there's the Fluctuating Group.

Examples:
Hariyama
Breloom
Drifblim

If anyone wants details of the groups, go to the link below.

The way I play, experience groups never really affect me that much.  I just rotate Pokémon when one of mine levels up, so that none of them really do fall behind.


...But actually looking up those experience groups, now I see why I felt like I was underleveled in Gold and Silver.  Umbreon and Alakazam are the only Pokémon on my Silver that aren't in the Slow group (yes, I actually rotated Typhlosion out to make room for Houndoom), although I may replace Skarmory with Scizor once Dragonair evolves and I can replace its Waterfall with Fly.

My Gold team levels up quite a bit faster in comparison: three Medium Slows (Meganium, Poliwrath and Nidoqueen), two Medium Fasts (Jynx and Steelix) and only Dragonite as a Slow.  I'm at the same point in both games, but just about everyone is 1½ levels higher in Gold. :lol:

But really, that's just something I never really stop to think about.  It really only comes up when I'm rotating a new Pokémon into the roster and it needs to level up a lot to evolve, as with Tynamo or Larvesta in White.  Other than that, I don't really take it into account and just level-grind as I normally would.

I'm in the first round. I can beat Will using my Skarmory, Octillery, and Heracross, because I depend on Mismagius way too much. I don't have 2 other pokemon on my team. The last 2 are HM slaves.

Oh, crap...  Yeah, I planned around that from the start on Gold and Silver. :lol: Most of my team's HM's were evenly distributed, or if I had an HM slave, I'd keep it in the PC and train something else as part of the main party.  The first thing I'd do is probably go to a move deleter and have those HM slaves turned into real fighters, while leaving different Pokémon in the PC to act as HM slaves instead.

HUGE BW2 UPDATE!

Some scans of next month's CoroCoro have surfaced, revealing some new characters, cities, and other things. Here are some of the notable items:

  • The player character lives in a city. Not a town, a city. Complete with a Pokemon Center, a Trainer's School, etc.
  • There will be a Poison-type gym for the first time since Kanto.
  • The game takes place two years after the events of Black and White.
  • The order of the Unova Pokedex has changed, even including Pokemon from the first four generations (Lapras, Larvitar line, Beldum line, Riolu line, just to name a few).
