A Well-Rounded Pokemon Team (No EVS or IVS)

(Note: You need to know type advantages/disadvantages for this strategy)This is a strategy I have tried that is meant to work with a “Just use damaging moves, no stat-raising unless it comes with damaging the foe” strategy (My strategy), but can work with others. This strategy does involve catching Pokemon, but does not require breeding.

This strategy all depends on witch starter you chose. For this example, lets say I chose squirtle. I now have Blastoise, and I need a well- rounded team.(In this example, I will be using Pokemon from all 7 generations) The first step in a well rounded team is to have a water, a grass, and a fire type Pokemon on your team. For this example, let’s say you catch Tsareena and Chandelure. You now have the first part of a well rounded team. The second part is where this gets a bit trickier. You need a Pokemon that is not grass, fire, or water type that is strong against said types and strong against each other. In this example,  Raichu, an electric type, is strong against Blastoise, Togekiss, a flying/fairy type,       is strong against Tsareena, a grass type, but is also weak to electric and poison type moves, and Nindoqueen is a ground/poison type, and is super effective against fire, fairy, and electric types.

As an overview, you need:

1.a Water type

2.a Fire type

3. a Grass type

4.a Pokemon that’s strong against water types and #5 or #6

5 a Pokemon that’s strong against fire types and #4 or #6

6. a Pokemon that’s strong against grass types and #4 or #5

(#4 = number four on this list)

My Top 6 Favorite Pokemon Designs

As this is my first blog post, I think it’s fair to say that I should post about something positive. One of the first things we see of a Pokemon is it’s design, so I’ll start there. I’m a sucker for cute Pokemon, so don’t be surprised if many of them are small, fluffy Pokemon. Feel free to say your favorites in the comments!

#1 Braxien

I’ll admit it,I have a bit of a soft spot for gen 6. It came out just around the time I got a 3DS, so I was very enthusiastic about this generation. I like this Pokemon for 2 reasons:

1: ( at least to me) The overall design is good.

2: It’s fluffy ( I warned you!)

I also chose Fennekin as my gen 6 starter, so I may be a bit biased.


#2 Glaceon

I love the eeveeloutions, theres no doubt about that, but Glaceon has always been my favorite. I like its big ice diamond on it’s head, and the color is very nice. This is also my favorite ice type Pokemon, with a very high special attack.


#3 Absol

This Pokemon has a dark feel, with a bit of mystery. I really like the idea of a Pokemon who warns of danger, and I also like how the mega has… if you guessed fluffy wings, then you are 100% correct!


#4 Tsareena

This Pokemon is actually part of my Sun/Moon team to balance out between Primarina and Arcanine,  and it’s high attack stat is very helpful in a pinch. Even though this Pokemon is mean spirited, kicking it’s enemies while laughing boisterously, I love the little crown on it’s plant- hair thing.


#5 Goodra

It’s a gooey dragon that gives hugs! As I said, I have a soft spot for generations 6-7, as I feel personally they have the best designs/ concepts. I love Goodra because it is big and friendly looking. I just want to give Goodra a big hug!


#6 Gothitelle

Although I feel Gothitelle should also have the dark typing, I love the bows and sophisticated look to this Pokemon. It makes me think a bit of a mid- 1800’s ball gown, with all the ruffles and lace. If you look up “Gothitelle gijinka”, You’ll see that many artists went for a mid 1800’s look as well.


This concludes my top 6 favorite Pokemon design-wise. Please remember to comment your favorite Pokemon designs!
