You had all of these on your Sinnoh team. Don't try and deny it.

Only Staraptor
I had to rely on Torterra, Blissey, and Gyarados to pick up the rest of the slack

And they’re all snapped (besides Gyarados)

Used non of them because I can't stand any of them.

Depends on the game.
Diamond: Yes for Staraptor and Luxray
Platinum: Had Electivire and Staraptor

I've never used Floatzelas I think it's a downgrade from its pre-evo (design wise). Instead I used Empoleon and Gastrodon respectively.

This is why I'm glad they've stopped doing cross-gen evos. Like a third of Gen 4 (and gen 2) is just cross-gens which really limits your options when playing through their regions since the amount of usable (ie not absolute shitmon like Kricketune) new Pokemon is so much lower.
>>
>>41706607
I can somewhat see something good with the staraptor but what's with the others?

It should be dark type because otherwise it's a completely generic and unnotable physical Electric shitmon like a dozen others.

Electric/Dark is not even a good typing, just because it's monotype does not make it unnotable. Luxray has good abilities and a cool design.

If it was Dark it'd at least have good Physical STAB.

>It's not an evil Pokemon just because you want it to be

Neither are plenty of Dark types. Absol, Greninja, and Pangoro for example. Evil type is a misnomer just as much as Dark type is, being evil or mean is not a requirement for the type.

so it should be Electric/Normal?

The problem was that at least in DP the majority of cross gen evolutions were only obtainable in the post game and weren't even used by any trainers. It really seemed like they were trying to keep them a secret until Platinum released, hell, Electrivire and Magmortar were completely unavailable in the original DP (unless you had battle revolution).

The only way to get electririzer/magmarizer was via battle revolution or from wild Magby/Elekid if you had FireRed LeafGreen in the GBA slot. You don't find them on any route or from an NPC, can't even purchase them in the battle park.

I didn't have any of these. I had chatot instead of staraptor, gastrodon instead of floatzel, and I thought at the time that luxray was a straight downgrade and copy of manectric so I skipped it too. Everyone else seemed to use them though.

I didn't use Floatzel because I had Empoleon.

My original team was this:

>mismagius

Infernape was on my team from the start and I did all available content on a single save file in Diamond and didn't replay, so I didn't understand people complaining about the lack of fire types. It really sucked looking back, though.

Never. Lumineon was the Water type I was looking forward, I was pretty satisfied overall.

Lmao. All you need to wreck the gen 4 games are gyarados and garchomp

Gyarados: DD then waterfall/aqua tail/ice fang. Sweeps the boss battles and the E4 ezpz. Only gym leader that will trouble you is Volkner which is why we have:

Garchomp: SD then EQ/Dragon Claw. Basically a cheat code.

Cynthia is joke because Gyara or chomp can set up on her spiritomb that she always sends out first and then easily 6-0 her team after a couple DD/SD boosts and maybe some X speeds for chomp (if her chomp is a higher level than yours so you don’t get outsped and OHKOed by dragon rush).

Sinnoh has the smallest selection for team building there’s a 95% chance you kept one, from the OP, to the hall of fame. And ~50% chance you used two of them. ~20% you used all three in at least one playthrough of Gen 4.

It was an absolute disaster. They had usable shit like stunky waaaay out of the way. If you tried limiting yourself to new region exclusives and for go Kaaaaantttoooo. Then you’re fucked for coverage.

Infernape, Skuntank w/ Flamethrower, and Rapidash is the only fire coverage you have.

Early game mons are 50% unusable shitmons. Bidoof almost always became an HM slave by the end of the game because it didn’t externalize overworld moves like Gen 6-onwards. It was a dumpster fire, not much of an exaggeration desu. I dropped the series at Diamond because it was so shit. I played Platinum AFTER BW n BW2 because Sinnoh is that boring of a region.

No I dont want to use Machop, Zubat and Ponyta to actually round out my teams.

No I don’t want to wait until the BP grind of postgame facilities to a obtain my final evos, which were a key part of advertising (nearly impossible to obtain until the point where you wanna shelf the game entirely because you’re X hours past the endgame)
>>
>>41706607
I only used Luxray, dumped Staravia for Murkrow (Later Honchkrow) as my main flying type because it's a way cooler looking blackbird. I did not use Buizel, I caught one and boxed it immediately. I already had Empoleon as my main water type.

My team was-
Empoleon, Luxray, Honchkrow, Rapidash, Weavile, and Machamp

Some have all of the mystery events available to hand out to you (albeit at random and sometimes failing, but on the brighter side, the events include the unreleased azure flute), some have their own GTS, with a site to accompany it, and some are wiimmfii
