Hi! I had a goal of reaching tier 10 this season, but it seems more and more unachievable. For Ultra I only have a single set of pokemon which isn’t the best and for Master I don’t stand a chance as I don’t have Dialgia and I don’t have the other relevant legendaries fully powered up. So I’m aiming for Great and its going so-so. Currently I’m rocking Altaria, Tropius and Azumarill in that order. Originally I had Lanturn instead of Altaria, but I couldn’t deal with grass types then. At the cost of a little originality (been trying to avoid going 100% meta, but that seems impossible if I want to win), Altaria has probably made my life a little easier. However, I really struggle with steel types. Specifically, I can’t take Bastiodon down unless my Azumarill has a lot of health and/or shields. I struggle with Skarmory, Registeel and Ferrothorn, although these are somewhat doable in more scenarios. Anyone got any tips to change up my team? I reeeaaally don’t wanna switch out Tropius since its quite dear to me and also rarely seen in the league. Some mons that could easily be added are:
Skarmory (not amazing IV)
Galvantula (not amazing IV)
Dewgong (not spending elite tms)
Umbreon (not last resort)
Lapras (not ice beam)
Some other mons that I have decent IVs for, but little candy (so it would be quite an effort to add them) are:
EDIT: For the record, I’m on tier 8 and more or less winning 3/5 now or maybe closer to 2.5/5. Thats either stagnant or too slow to climb.
