If you stand at the entrance and walk a little way down, you'l see a seemingly inaccessible Item Ball. Climb down towards Route 227 using the stairs, then find your way over to the left of the screen and come back up using your Bike. That'll lead you to the Item Ball with the Life Orb in. That's in Platinum.

^Not really. Pokemon need EVs if they want to function to their full potential. Also, Toxic and Double Team are two bad moves on ANY Dusknoir, and Substitute doean't really help it that much. Earthquake is an okay move choice, but you really need another attacking move, because that set it currently walled by Skarmory. I don't really have a recommendation, but yeah, that set it terrible.
hahahahahahaha

Double Team is banned in competitive play, I'd teach it Pain Split instead using the HGSS tutors. Substitute isn't great on Dusknoir - since it already has a very low base HP, it's Substitute's will only be worth like 67 HP. It's speed isn't great either, meaning it's likely to get hit before having the chance to set up, unless of course, you keep Double Team :P Fire Punch is a good choice for the final slot, so is Shadow Sneak.

OK I ditched my Rain Dance team idea, and have come up with three pokemon I can use in 2 vs 2 battles, AND for Battle Tower (possibly).
They are:

Swampert @ Leftovers
Relaxed nature
[Torrent]
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Defense/ 6 Sp. Attack
-Stealth Rock
-Surf
-Earthquake
-Ice Beam

Followed by,

Blaziken@Expert Belt
{Blaze}
Adamant nature (+Attack, -Sp. Attack) /
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 6 HP
Blaze Kick
Sky Uppercut
Stone Edge
ThunderPunch

And finally,

Raichu@Leftovers/(Life Orb once I get it on Platinum)
Timid Nature
[Static]
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spd
-Focus Blast
-Thunder
-Grass Knot
-Nasty Plot


Would this work effectively whatsoever later on? And is there anything I can do to make this team more effective?

Not too sure that Stealth Rock will be useful at all, considering it'll only hit 2 Pokemon per match. May want to run Curse/Rest/Sleep Talk/Waterfall.

Blaziken needs a Choice Scarf, and Superpower > Sky Uppercut. You treat Blaziken as a powerful hit-and-run Pokemon, which means you'll often have to switch to a wall when the next Pokemon comes in.

Raichu kinda sucks. I'll let someone else offer up a reccomendation for replacing it though, because I really can't be bothered to think one up.

Having a +Speed nature is pointless if you are running curse, because you're just going to be spending time lowering it.

I'd say put a Choice Band on it - it gives an Attack boost, just like Curse, but without having to lower your Speed to get it. What ability has it got? If it has Rock Head, moves such as Head Smash can be useful. Aqua Tail will also come in handy on the set, then 2 more attacking moves. I've not got Aggron's moveset in front of me, so can't recommend anything more off the top of my head.
I'm still for DDTar for the win EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Just because he wins.
Full stop.
Yes.
;]

p.s. We always Leave out poor Metagross, whom I'm still not sure covets a Non Legandary Úber pokémon at any rate

Jolly is the perfect nature for CB Aggron. Here's the standard set:

Aggron@ Choice Band
{Rock Head}
Jolly nature (+Speed, -Sp. Attack)
EVs: 252 Attack/ 252 Speed/ 6 Defense
Head Smash
Aqua Tail
Ice Punch
Low Kick

Aggron is amazing in UU. STAB Head Smash with Rock Head negating the recoil makes Aggron an amazing wall-breaker. Aqua Tail deals with Pokemon who resist Rock, like Rhyperior or something. Ice Punch hits Torterra and other Grass types for Super Effective. Low Kick deals with Steelix, Regirock, Registeel and other Aggron, who actually wall Head Smash well enough.

This topic is for all those questions that just need two posts to be sorted; one post asking the question, another post answering it. It's just to keep things nice and tidy so that we don't end up with lots of topics that don't really have any "discussion" value.

Here's an example:

Quote
Do I have to train up my Poke until he is at level 100 for it to be classed as 'EV Trained'? Because if that's the case the i'll probably cry considering I don't have the time to train thwm up to 100 and I'm only training mine up untill they are at lv 50 so they can be used in the BT.

Quote
No.

For a Pokémon to be considered fully EV trained, you have to have 'maxed out' it's EVs (510). This means that the full allocation has been used up, such as having a spread of 252/252/6.

Obviously, the three word rule applies, so do not just answer "yes" or "no," try and expand your answer to further help the person with the question.

Edit: Well that's annoying, I can't sticky this myself. Rest assured ol' ducks, I'll get this stickied somehow ^_^

Edit: You can thank me at the Meet Sir Peter~ =]
