This is a forum where you tell psypoke how you beat platinum pokemon-wise. Do you train an entire team or do you just train one pokemon. I encourage you to post your "first" team or pokemon. This is just to see what different teams you could use when going through the storyline. Until platinum, I just used my starter alone to beat the game, but that's going to change this time. Please just edit your first post if you want to tell how your team changed. I'll post up mine once I get my video games back from my Dad. :cry:

Location: In his imagination, imaginating things.
I trained 4 pokemon and 2 HM slaves that I can go anywhere with.

For example, I started with Piplup and caught a zubat early on. These two got me through Hearthome, before which I unsuccessfully tried to find a munchlax. :(

I also caught a Gligar, although I did not train it at that moment.

I then caught a female Ralts and a Scyther.

Managing with a Bidoof for HMs, I got to Pastoria and caught a Tropius in the Great Marsh, and a Bibarel at the Lake. I also got the Razor Fang on the way down, and Evolved my Gligar, which I then began to train, depositing my trusty crobat in the box.

My team at the Elite Four:
Empoleon
Scyther
Gliscor
Gardevoir
Giratina (good wall for item using)
Tropius (just because.)

After:
For the Battle Zone, I trained a Dragonite and bred for a DD outrage Salamence, so my battle zone team became:

Empoleon
Scyther
Gliscor
Gardevoir
Dragonite
Salamence

fun fun fun.

Training 6 pokemon usually takes too long and results in underleveled pokemon.
With 2, and then four to train, your pokemon are frequently overpowered and much stronger than the opponents'.

My advice: When you are with a partner (Cheryl, Riley, etc.) take advantage of the free heals and extra exp from double battles. At the end of Eterna Forest, my Prinplup and Golbat were in the mid to low 20s, and they dominated gardenia. After Iron Island, I think my four pokemon were in the mid to upper 40s.

Still, however you train and whatever you raise is your choice. have fun, and good luck.

I traded a team I got from my diamond onto Platinum, and I'm yet to go through the storyline with them (I'm still in Oreburgh...). The 6 of them are:

Jirachi
Manaphy
Porygon-Z
Slowking
Vaporeon
Umbreon

All 6 of them are still level 10.

There really should be a "train 4" option, as I also trained 4 pokemon and carried 2 mostly unused HM slaves.

I found using 4 pokemon that the E4 and Champion still had a significant level advantage because I did not spend time purely leveling but I could use typing and items to defeat them.

I had a team of three (Torterra, Staraptor, and Rapidash) that I sued to beat the game along with 3 HM slaves.

Early on in the game I used several Pokémon as I was planning to have a team of six. after failing to Gardenia and later whichever Galactic Commander in the Eterna Galactic Building it is, I ended up having a team of three.

Even though I only got the game on the 22nd, when it came over here in Europe I recently defeated the Champion with these

{garchomp}
(Level 52)
{staraptor}
(Level 54)
{bronzong}
(Level 55)

I have been playing this too much as I only caught a Gible and a Bronzor yesterday morning!

I try to level my team fairly evenly though it doesn't always turn out haha. I'm still waiting a while to pick up Platinum because I don't have a second DS to trade all my pokemon from Diamond. However I will eventually and this time I'll start with Turtwig as he's the only one I haven't started with yet. By the time I get to the E4 my team will prolly be something close to: {torterra} {floatzel} {staraptor} {toxicroak} {gallade} {glaceon} {luxray}

I like training 6 pokemon in a team instead of just two.

The six that I used in the Elite four are:

Torterra; {torterra}
Empoleon; {empoleon}
Staraptor; {staraptor}
Gengar; {gengar}
Machamp; {machamp}
Luxray. {luxray}


I also hate to use Legendary's like Girtina. It makes the game to easy.

Well since I've already completed Pokemon Diamond (That was with infernape, gengar, gyrados, abomasnow, staraptor and Luxray) I'm going to do the last parts I need (Elite Four) with a friends Arceus consisting of Judgement, Roar of Time, Spatial Rend, and Shadow Force.

Cheap but effective. Up until then I used Drifblim, Kricketune, Torterra (Tortilla?), Xatu and Kingler. All very effective, except I had no electric Pokemon so Wake was really hard to beat. I then get Drifblim and gave it Thunderbolt.

Im beating my platnum with a team... A WATER TEAM!!!

feraligatr, slowking, kingdra, swampert, starmie, and kabutops

I start tomorow :D

I beat pearl with an infernape, a crobat, a drapion, mismagius, palkia, and a golduck with hypnosis :P egg moves ftw

platinum was with torterra, yanmega, mamoswine, houndoom, gardevoir, and giratina... then I traded everything off, caught the regis, and restarted, and now I'm beginning my water trek, which will be muh more fun and difficult. I'm thinking about restarting pearl (after trading off stuff) and beating that one with all steel or all dark... but first it is water

:D

i have already beaten the game twice with the time of 20 hours put together which may be found amazing by some people but anyway the team that i am using at the moment is a:

lv. 100 Salamence
lv. 100 Giratina
lv. 70 Garchomp
lv. 70 Arceus
lv. 70 Darkrai
lv. 70 Kingdra

and hopefully they will all be level 100 soon so that my perfect team will be ready to take down any foe and i will be able to beat the battle frontier and no i am not EV train as i see it as a waste of time if you have the right moves.
