 Clown Master's Pokemon GBA Team Garage

Aaron Hsu's Battle Tower Team
July 25
, 2006

I play Sapphire and am trying to win over 100 battles in Battle Tower
with 3 Level 50 Pokemon.

Here they are:

Gyarados @Scope Lens (Male)
Modest (+sp at, -atk)
EV: 255 Sp. attack, 255 Sp. Defense
-Ice beam

I always start with Gyarados... I guess he's a special sweeper in my team.

Salamence @ Choice Band (Male)
Lonely (+atk, -def)
EV: 255 Attack, 255 Sp. Defense
-Dragon Claw

My Physical Sweeper... but I wanto replace flamethrower with Rock
Slide, but I don't know how to get that.

Wigglyruff @ Leftovers/Bright Powder (Male)
Modest (+sp. atk, atk)
EV: 255 Sp. Attack, 255 Sp. Defense
-Ice Beam

backup special sweeper I guess... but I'm looking for someone else to
replace Wigglytuff instead... any suggestions? I was thinking of
using Starmie (better special attack + speed, but lacks HP) or Regice
(better special attack + special defense, but lacks in speed)
or should I use a baton passer/tank?

so far... I could only get to around 59 wins... need a lot more to go
Thanx so much

One suggestion would be to run a better special sweeper or something else besides wigglytuff. Blissey would work well, as well as help you survive by healing your Pokémon. Try:

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers
EVs: 200 Def / 56 SAtk / 252 SDef
Trait: Serene Grace
Bold Nature
- Counter
- Heal Bell / Aroma Therapy
- Ice Beam
- Seismic Toss

If you want to simplify the EVs, do 255 Def / 255 SDef.

For Salamence, If he's going to have Choice Band, you should use a more Physical Set. Try:

Salamence (M) @ Choice Band
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SAtk
Trait: Intimidate
Jolly Nature
- Rock Slide
- Earthquake
- Fire Blast
- Hidden Power: Flying / Aerial Ace

Pretty much any speed/attack increasing nature would work, though.

Gyarados really doesn't have the Special Attack to be a special sweeper. Tauntrados usually works. I'm not sure for Battle Tower, but it should work.

Gyarados (M/F) @ Lum Berry
EVs: Make sure it has 198 Speed. Put the rest in attack and HP.
Trait: Intimidate
Adamant / Jolly Nature.
- Taunt
- Dragon Dance
- Earthquake
- Hidden Power: Flying / Return

That should help. Battle Tower, however is just a big game of prediction. Try to predict what your opponent is going to do and switch in or use the move you need to counter it. If you think your opponent is going to Thunderbolt your Gyarados, switch in Blissey. If They're going to Thunder Wave you or use Toxic or something, Taunt and then Dragon Dance up so you can do heavy damage.

Good luck. I hope you do well.
