The Complete Guide on the Elite Four
Why waste space on a fancy title? This is the Elite Four: Aaron, the easiest of the Elite Four, uses Bug and dark type Pokemon. Bertha, her defence oriented team is full of ground type and one rock type Pokemon. Flint, his combination oriented team uses fire, normal, ghost, and steel pokemon. Lucian, his balance oriented team uses psychic type pokemon. Cynthia, the champion of all trainers, uses a variety of types of pokemon. THE GUIDE: (The order in which the Elite Four and the champion send out their pokemon varies depending on your pokemon.) First up is Aaron, the user of bugs. His pokemon are, Dustox lv 53, Beautifly lv 53, Vespiquen lv 54, Heracross lv 54, and Drapion lv 57. Dustox is a bug/poison type so Psychic, Fire, Flying, and Rock type moves will be good against it. A steel type pokemon is good too, because it wont be affected by Dustoxs Toxic, and Bug Buzz will do little damage. He will probably start out with being cheap on his Double Team, using Toxic and Bug Buzz in between. The Beautifly is Aarons strongest pokemon(just kidding). It will use Bug Buzz and Giga Drain and little else. The Heracross has a whole butt load of move types. Hes got Night Slash for no apparent reason, He has Stone Edge to kill your flying types, he has Close Combat because he wants to make it easier for you to kill him, (I mean, what idiot would send out a rock type against him?) and He has Megahorn because he wants to waste turns missing. The Vespiquen has Heal Order (can you guess what that does?) Defend Order (How about that one?) Attack Order (You better know what that does) and Power Gem, which is super effective against a Honchkrow but not very effective against a Graveler. Lastly, his Drapion is NOT A BUG TYPE! It is actually dark/poison and it is very much an idiot. Ground moves are good against it, so I send out Torterra. Ice Fang is among his Move set, but he chooses to use Cross Poison instead. Retard! He also has Aerial Ace and X Scissor. He also feels the need to show off his moves, so he will never use a move twice in a row and, being the idiot he is, will also try not to use moves that are super effective against your guys. Next is Bertha, the old fat lady that uses ground type Pokemon because her sister, Agatha from Pokemon Red and Blue stole all of her Ghost type pokemon, and since almost every ghost type pokemon isnt affected by ground type moves, due to Levitate or a dual type or having Wonder Guard, Bertha is a senile old bat thats upset at her long dead mother for loving Agatha more. Anyway, her first pokemon is Quagsire, and she must have been drunk when she chose its move set. Its only attack move is Dig, so your flying types are safe. It will usually alternate between Protect and Double Team, like every pokemon that dropped out of high school does. Its other move is sandstorm, which it only wants to use if it wont affect the pokemon you have out. Her other pokemon are Sudowoodo lv 56, Golem lv 56, Whiscash lv 54, and her biggie is Hippowdon lv 59. Her Sudowoodo knows Hammer Arm, Hammer Arm, Hammer Arm, and Rock Slide. Hammer Arm is all it will ever use. Whiscash isnt actually all that stupid, but the only thing it knows how to do is Aqua Tail and Amnesia. Can you believe her Golem knows Gyro Ball? And, better yet, its the only thing it uses? Once in a great while youll see an Earthquake but its too dumb to figure out it has any other moves. Hippowdon is not smart but its not dumb either. It uses Crunch and Earthquake to kill you, and Curse, which does not help it against Surf or Brine. She is easy to beat, and theres a reason why, because she is an illegal immigrant from Kanto that had to escape because so many people knew about her habit of molesting children. Here comes Flint, the guy with the out of style hairdo that keeps inputting the type he uses into every conversation he has. You need to light a fire in that guys heart. This situation is heating up, Im blazing now! Whew, burnt right down to cinders! You are one hot trainer! He just uses this lingo to distract people from figuring out his affair with Bertha. Eeeeeew! He may claim to be a quote Fire Pro! but in reality only 2 of his guys are fire type, which is reasonable considering there are only 5 fire types in the sinnoh pokedex. His pokemon are Rapidash lv 58, Drifblim lv 58, Lopunny lv 57, Steelix lv 58, and his biggie is Infernape lv 61. The Rapidash will use Flare Blitz on no pokemon. It will use Bounce and Solar beam on all pokemon. The idiot knows Sunny Day, but would rather take twice the time in charging up Solar beam. His Drifblim will use Double Team (another high school drop out) and then Baton Pass with Infernape to make it impossible to kill. Its only attack is Ominous Wind, which could raise all his stats which would suck even more with Baton Pass. It almost never uses Will o Wisp. Lopunny will use Charm to make you switch to your special attacks and then reflect them back at you with Mirror Coat. It also knows Sunny day and Fire Punch. The Steelix knows Fire Fang but it never uses it. It usually has the habit of dying in one Surf. The last one is Infernape and he has a whole butt load of moves like Heracross and Drapion. He knows Thunder punch for the water and flying types, Earthquake for no reason at all, Mach Punch because Flint was high on Meth and thought Close Combat was Scratch, and Flare Blitz because he doesnt have enough money to buy Flamethrower. Infernape is like Drapion in many ways, he felt like using Thunder Punch on my Torterra. That made me feel like burying him with an Earthquake. Lucian likes to read, which means hes a nerd and could never get any girls in high school or his 10 years in college. It also means hes weak Physically, and so he becomes devoted to psychic type pokemon so he can use his mind instead. His pokemon are a Mr. Mime lv 59, Girafarig lv 59, Alakazam lv 60, Medicham lv 60, and his biggie is Bronzong lv 63. Mr. Mime will spoil your attacks with Reflect and Light Screen, knowing that you would never use Brick Break on a Psychic type. Then he will use Psychic and Thunderpunch which was lame for my Honchkrow. the Girafarig will use a combination of Crunch, Psychic, Double Hit and Growl. Thats right, I said Growl. Im just kidding, he doesnt have growl. The Alakazam is really the strongest of Lucians pokemon. It knows Psychic to kill all in one hit, Focus Blast for the Dark types, Energy Ball for wasting turns, and something else that he never uses. The Medicham knows Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch, and (you guessed it) Detect. Here are the thoughts going through Medichams mind as he emerges from his pokeball to fight a Torterra. Lets see here, I think Ill use Detect 5 times in a row, and then if Im still alive, i will use thunderpunch. Hes probably Canadian. Bronzong is a sturdy one, I found it impossible to kill him in one hit with anything. He will use Calm Mind about 4 times and then Earthquake, which is not affected at all by his Sp attack boost. He uses Gyro Ball and Psychic occasionally, but for the most part its all about Calm Mind and Earthquake. Beat him up and shove him in a locker and you will now face the champion. Yes, thats right the person following you throughout your adventures turns out to be the Champ. Where have I seen that before? Oh right! In every single game! Her pokemon are a lv 62 Spiritomb, a Milotic lv 63, a Lucario lv 63, a Roserade lv 63, a Gastrodon lv 62, and her gigantes is Garchomp lv 66. Depending on your type, the Spiritomb will change its move to make sure its not very effective. Silver Wind, Psychic, and Dark Pulse, occasionally Embargo, and always something that was totally the wrong thing to do. Milotic could use Ice Beam on my Torterra, but it would rather use Aqua Ring to restore about 5hp each turn. It also knows Recover, which can be a bitch if youre not doing more than half damage with your attacks. Roserade will use Shadow Ball and Energy Ball against your steel type. Gastrodon will use Stone Edge on a steel type pokemon, when it could use Earthquake. It also has Sludge Bomb, which doesnt affect steel types, but that didnt stop him from using it a couple times. Lucario knows a whole bunch of random moves, only one of which belong there, Aura Sphere. It also knows Earthquake for the fire types, Psychic for the fighting types, and Dragon Pulse for doing no damage. Last and smartest (but still dumb) is the Garchomp. Its got Brick Break for Ice types, Dragon Rush, Giga Impact (For leaving itself vulnerable) and Earthquake. It will use all the wrong moves for the types you put out, and Dragon Rush and Giga Impact for all. It has terrible Sp defence. I gave it an Ice Beam from a lv 24 Glaceon and it took half its health. Hooray you are now the champion! (Unless your pokemon suck too bad that they cant even beat Aaron)
