Aggron, right I forgot that one. But other than that, nah....
Actually Steelix, but Aggron is better, that one can learn surf.  :D
And I would like to remind you of "Fire"
Possibily Ice as well, and my main problem is it can't get any good moves. (Fly is the best one.)

What will you do?

To be honest, I'm not that great of a team builder, I've just observed great team builders.  There's never been anyone for me to battle, so team building for me has been entirely a hobby.  I'd recommend a site more specialized than this for good team suggestions, honestly.  Pokemasters is good, but they aren't very active these days...

I can say, though, that a lot of Pokemon can be utilized effectively in roles you may not have thought of.  Ever seen the move Spikes?  Pokemon can be based around that move alone.  There's even a term for a kind of Pokemon that serves as a booster for others' stats: Baton Passers.

Look, I uesd to be a master, a long time ago. But it fell out of style, and actually it felt like every game was the same after a bit.
I have already picked apart the mechanics of the game, and I rely on the ability of my well-placed moves to eliminate opp's in one or two moves. With how I set my Monsters up I had the weaknesses of everything I came up against usually. But don't think I entirely ignored stragety I still used a few moves but for me it just lost all exictement once I learned how to organise moves in such a way as to elminate any adversary.

Which game was it you were a master of?  ???  Just curious, because the farther back you go the less like the current game it is.  It's really intense, from what I've read.

Whats intense, my post or the game? And I decided out of sheer boredom more than anything else to keep beating them up to Sapphire. But they are all the same when it gets down to it. Its just a matter of figuring out the winning combonation, like any game.

Skarmory is easily one of the best Pokemon there is.  It's a great counter against Ice, and has practically no weakness.  Very fast too.
And there are plenty of other good Steel types.  Steelix, Aggron, Scizor, Magneton.  It is one of the less common types, but still great.

And yeah, most Pokemon games follow the same basic formula, but the great thing about the game is just trying out different Pokemon.  There are hundreds of them, and each game has even more.  It's one of the few games, along with Oblivion that I can easily spend 100+ hours playing.  Not many other games can boast that.  And remember, you don't just need to use only the really strong Pokemon, it's a lot more fun just to use ones you like.  Just wait for Diamond and Pearl, so you can all go up against my level 100 Aipom - I don't stand a chance of winning, but that's not the point, is it?   ;)
