    Post your E-18 completion team

    My team changed quite often over the course of my main playthrough. That being said, this is what I ended with: Aerodactyl: Lvl 90, Jolly, Ability: Pressure Holding: Aerodactylite Rock Slide Fly Iron Head Thunder Fang Kingdra: Lvl 90, Bashful, Ability: Swift Swim/Sniper (Depends on what's needed) Holding: Leftovers Dragon Dance Outrage Waterfall Surf Magnezone: Lvl 89, Bold, Ability: Sturdy Holding: Metal Coat Flash Cannon Metal Sound Magnet Rise Discharge Hippowdon: Lvl 88, Hardy, Ability: Sand Stream Holding: Smooth Rock Stealth Rock Earthquake Fissure Crunch Salazzle: Lvl 86, Modest, Ability: Corrosion Holding: Black Sludge Sludge Wave Flamethrower Nasty Plot Dragon Pulse Weavile: Lvl 83, Adamant, Ability: Pressure Holding: Expert Belt Ice Punch Night Slash Brick Break Icicle Crash

    Choose Bonnie's Additional Pokemon "Mysteriously"

    All I am saying is that eventually she needs to be reunited with Tyrantrum. She had such a bond with it in the show.

    Team help

    If you aren't set on a Steel Type Pokemon yet, I would HIGHLY recommend Magnezone. His Sturdy ability is a game changer and with his high Special Attack, Flash Cannon is extremely powerful. Not to mention you can use Discharge to paralyze enemy teams. Plus he would combo very well with your Swampert for double battles due to the Electric immunity of Swampert. Also, in regards to the recommendation of a good Ice Type, I think a Weavile would work amazing on your team. It would give you an added edge against the Ground Types you will face later on, also it will help immensely against the Flying Gym. It is one of the fastest Pokemon and has a very high Physical Attack. You can give him Ice Punch from the tutor in Peridot and can also give him Ice Shard for priority just in case you are worried about something out-speeding you (which should rarely happen). Not to mention, Weavile is the ultimate Dragon slayer. One Ice Punch kills pretty much any Dragon Type in one hit... He's a beast. Plus as an added bonus, you get a Dark Type on the team so you can always swap over to avoid a Psychic attack and abuse the immunity! Oh, also on your Staraptor. It might be good to swap out Double Edge with Return. Return would work amazing if its friendship is high enough. It gets STAB and no recoil which could be very helpful since you already will be taking recoil damage from Brave Bird. Honestly though your team is pretty well balanced. The only odd-duck to me is Silvally. I am not too sure how useful it really is in Reborn, especially as a Fighting Memory version. Don't get me wrong, a Fighting Type is SUPER helpful in Reborn, but I feel like a Silvally wouldn't have access to that great of Fighting Type moves to really exploit the typing advantages, even more-so because you don't have any Fighting Type moves on it. In my opinion, it seems like your weakest link. Then again I've never really used Silvally before, so maybe he is great. If you think replacing him could benefit you, there are plenty of fantastic Fighting Pokemon available. Scrafty and Heracross are great because they both can have the Moxie ability. Hawlucha is a boss with Acrobatics and High Jump Kick. Also Meinshao with Regenerator ability and High Jump Kick can be a good sweeper. Lucario is another great choice as it could provide you with the additional Steel Typing. Gallade or Medicham could give you a Mega Evolution and the dual Psychic typing. Conkledurr is a WALL. Toxicroak could give you the Poison Type as well to help out against Fairy Types. Those are the first that popped into my head, but keep in mind the additional typing as you re-evaluate your team so that you do not double up. Good luck as you progress!

    Help me decide how to play my next reborn run!!

    What about a monotype challenge. That usually makes things fairly hard, but it certainly is an interesting twist. You could even do a mono-nuzlocke if you're up to it! I personally have always wanted to try a Normal Type mono-run, but I havent gotten around to it!

    Choose My Monotype Run

    I voted for Ghost as there is actuallly a decent amount you can get steadily throughout the game, counting Rowlett since he will become Decidueye. Another idea here, but I feel like a Normal Type playthrough could be very challenging but fun too! Normal is an extremely versatile type and there are some unique pokemon multi-typed with normal: Sawsbuck- Normal/Grass, Drampa- Normal/Dragon, Braviary- Normal/Flying, Wigglytuff Normal/Fairy, Diggersby Normal/Ground, Bibarel Normal/Water, Bewear Normal/Fighting, Oranguru Normal/Psychic, Heliolisk Eletric/Normal, Pyroar Fire/Normal. Like you could put together a really unique team with the normal typing that I feel often gets overlooked. The challenge here is that there are A LOT of fighting types that you will encounter, as well as steel/rock which can make a normal playthrough rough early on.

    Rounding out my team for Agate Circus

    Baneful Bunker is amazing. Also, I cannot tell you the amount of times Haze has nerfed all the buffs ive made so it is certainly a good mon. That being said, I rarely encountered myself losing due to the opponent buffing, so it might not be worth it. Cant hurt to have it though and you can always re-learn it if you think you need it for a specific fight.

    Good place to train after City Restoration?

    Also the desert works well, Or the Once Upon a Somewhere (i think thats what it is called) before Titania's Gym. You can usually find a good mix of 60s through 90 there!

    Favorite pokemon team, thoughts?

    Hey! So I love the team, glad to see you are putting that Naganadel to good use! I certainly think your team is solid! The only thing that slightly concerns me with the team is the doubling up on bug type between Heracross and Scizor. Both are amazing mons, but too much of one type can make things challenging. Then again, this is reborn, and sometimes you need to have a couple of the same type to take on an enemy lol I definitely think the steel type is kind of necessary for this game too.. Personally, I've been using my Magnezone since it was a wee Magnemite from Shades gym. Magnezone is a tank and with Study is perfect for getting that paralysis, lowering spc defense with metal sound, or tanking a hit and using magnet rise then healing up to sweep against anything that would use earthquake. Overall has been a literal beast on my team. That being said, you do you dude. You mentioned Aegislash too though and let me tell ya that thing is an absolute monster! You can swords dance and then shadow sneak for that priority move if that is something you like about Scizors Bullet punch. Plus that knights shield move is such a nerf to the enemy. I certainly think one would add to your team immensely and provide a bit more coverage for you when needed!

    OH another very good fighting type is Scrafty, the Dark/Fighting Type. It gets access to great moves like High Jump Kick and can have the moxie ability to boost its attack each time you defeat a pokemon with it. In addition, if you want to take the time to breed it, you can get that thing with Drain Punch and even Dragon Dance!

    Game Lag

    So I updated my computer again (Had to revert back to before I updated and install a more recent update) and the game is much better. It is not as fast, but certainly playable again. Only noticeable difference now is that when health is being lowered in battles, it is done at a normal rate, not too slow and not too fast, even when i've alt-boosted the speed.

    Ohhh I forgot that was the event Dratini. You could go for a Aqua Jet then for the priority move if you care that much. Also, Fire Punch could be useful for taking out Ice Types that could give it issues OR Steel Wing for Handling Fairies. Up to you! Also, I dont have spare Dratini's as I have yet to go catch one, but it sounds like the N1Dude has ya covered!

    Rate my team

    I usually go for: Dragon Dance Dragon Claw (In case the opponent has fairies, you dont get locked into using Outrage again, which would cause your confusion and free attacks against you) Fly Extreme Speed (Priority move just incase you worry about the opponent having a priority attack against you You can always give your tank some leftovers so it will continue to heal, or sitrus berries if you have a common amount of them!

    Rate and tips

    The movesets are alright, the only thing that stands out though is that you have no buff/debuff moves which can be critical for this game. For example, Metal Sound, which can be learned by Magnezone, harshly decreases the special defense of a pokemon making it much much easier to kill. Or Dragon Dance buffs attack and speed by one full stage making it much more of a threat on the battlefield. Things like that can be game changing. Even something as little as smokescreen can really mess up the enemies you'll face. That being said, the attacking moves you have for the most part seem alright. Magnet Rise is also good for Magnezone so you can avoid Earthquakes, but its not necessary. On your Heatmor, you probably dont need ALL those fire moves. Having one or two is fine, but you're limiting yourself with moves that he could learn to be more devastating to other opponents. One example of this is the move Stockpile that it can learn. This buffs all of its defenses. You could make your Heatmor incredibly hard to kill by stockpiling to make him a wall. Also, look at Swalot. It can learn some other types of moves, like body slam that can paralyze the target, but you have it pretty limited to only poison type moves. Feraligatr also should probably have an Ice Punch. It really helps deal with dragons, ground, flying, and grass types. Maybe in place of Hydro Pump as surf is also a practical move. When it comes to abilities, I'll break it down. Swalot is best to use either Sticky Hold or Gluttony Feraligatr should really be used with Sheer Force. It gets rid of added effects to the opponent, so no flinching etc. , but it increases the overall damage of the moves. Swoobat is best with Simple, as you can buff yourself for twice as much per move with that ability. The others are good. Lucario would be good, but you would be doubling up on steel type with your magnezone. Superpower is a great move on Ferligatr but at the same time it weakens it pretty brutally. Hawlucha is great too but then youd have multiple flying pokemon. You could always go for Machamp too if youre skeptical of Heracross, but let me tell you that Heracross is a force to be reckoned with.

    Game Lag

    I think it is a Windows update as well because weather never affected my game before. I play it without anything else running too. Even in the area that used to lag like crazy back when I had a different laptop never lagged before until now. I just updated my computer again and hopefully it will fix it.

    Update: I deleted Rejuvenation off of my computer hoping that would help, but it did not.
