Post teams asking for advice and help others!
I'm looking for help in developing a dark/ghost team. I know theme teams are typically shit, but it's for a friend who really loves that kinda shit. Her current team sucks, so I'm looking for advice on how to start building this theme team to be as competitive as it can be.
She's not super competitive, so honestly something that could actually win pick up battles with randoms online would probably make her super happy. I've probably got about a week to work on the actual breeding myself before she notices I have her game. I would probably say anything from OU down.
I'm looking at Sabeleye-M, Bisharp, and Weavile so far. I'm thinking of Umbreon and Gengar to play to the "my favorites" list. Still looking to try to round the team out (I know I can't give it perfect coverage but I'm trying to do the best to shore up weaknesses.)
It depends on the person
Also, the way the team is now could probably use more ghost-types. Gengar is always a good choice. Mismagius is a qt. M-Bannete is surprisingly fun to mess around with, but Sableye is probably a better option. Umbreon is a fun bulkmon. Eviolite Dusclops can be really bulky too.
My favorite HM slave in ORAS is Linoone. I typically pair it with a tentacrule. I put fly on a bird I caught early and then upgrade to Tropius when I want to start breeding/iv training.
