Is there a list of all possible Grunt teams for each message?
The “coiled and ready to strike” teams can be tough, as following the type chart will not help. Ground is resisted by the Zubat line and vulnerable to Grass attacks from the Bulbasaur line. Psychic is vulnerable to Bites from the Zubat line and some attacks from the Grimer line.
Trying to decide on my team for the harder Grunts (whose messages mention winning). My potentially relevant (thus not Blissey) maxed mons are Dragonite (DT/OR), Metagross (BP/MM), Tyranitar (Bi/Cr), Groudon (MS/EQ), Machamp (Ct/DP), Maomswine (PS/Av), Gyarados (WF/HP+Cr) and Mewtwo (currently PC/IB but will change in future). Of course, Dragonite handles starter teams like a boss and Metagross is resistant to all Dragonite moves and ZH Snorlax, while Machamp and Mamoswine are probably too frail.
What should I do with the numerous Shadow Pokemon that I catch? Any reason not to send 0* and 1* ones straight to the professor?
