With the battle tower the game cheats rotten adds seem to get tipped futher into the games favour. Basically when it comes to a 3 team for this orginality is not your friend.

Salamance, Tyranitar, Milotic.

You will last forever and a day.

Toys 'R' Us just announced that you (US residents) will have a chance to snag Darkrai at your local store. If you have yet to legitimately acquire Darkrai can now do so on May 31 and June 1.

Mr. Consideration.
 I'd probably go with a "Normal" move for the STAB. Return basically the best, but Secret Power (if you can get it) has it's merits as well, 30% chance to paralyze. Giga Impact has too much drawback unless it is a final move.

Quick claw isn't reliable enough to use on a pokémon with 90 base speed. Though it alone has won me quite a few fights.
If ya want hp, leftovers is way better than shell bell. unless you have only attack moves, then it might be useful, doesn't heal enough.

Other moves could be used too however. Attract would probably help a lot with focus punch for example.
Rest might be usable, with a chesto berry.
Something to fight fighting types, which will probably kill you very fast. Maybe Earthquake. (Though, as the most boring choice, I'd say no to earthquake.)
That's about all I'm gonna say about that.
Have fun.

Blimey training takes far longer than I remember.

I may have just made this up in my head but I'm sure I recall hearing that at Battle tower your pokemon can be upscale/downscaled to Lv 50/100 for battles, anyone have experience with this?

Downscaled to level 50.

Not upscaled at all.

Has anyone got to 100 wins in single battle at the battle tower yet? Seems like it would be rather difficult, and involve a great deal of luck.

Finally got a Shiny Porygon.. Oh wow, it is awesome indeed. Blue and Pink colors are traded, then the colors are different still.. Really cool. (not anything like the more generic shinies. Green, gold.. etc.)

Shiny Porygon is indeed very sexy. Good nature?

Impish nature with trace. Impish is like, +spdef -speed right..?
I have no clue what to do about training a Porygon. Any ideas? Like maybe what moves to get before evolving and stuff..?
Oh, and I have both of the evolution discs.

When I said that, I just thought -

"I'm sorry, she's fail."

"No, doc! Isn't there anything we can do?"
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Well, I finally got Wi-fi (Through some rather dodgy cable arrangement).

Does anyone fancy a battle?

If I dig up my cartridge I can probably have some semblance of a team ready in a day or two. I get the feeling that you're a lot better than I am, though.
Not a winner anymore.
