Your team is absolutely terrific. You will hear a rather skewed view of strength here since I would wager most who post are understandably hardcore.
If what you list is your main team then I imagine there isn't much you cannot do in this game right now depending on what your area is like competitively.
Adding a few other high level mons is always good too. A Lapras makes life much easier for dealing with all of the Dragonites most of us face.
Machamp can really drop the hammer on lots of defenders that most of us see in gyms.
It is a generalist's team. It should work fine for almost all gyms.
I have some specialists too, as jolteon, exeggutor, vaporeon, flareon, lapras, venussaur, machamp.
Maybe i am a bit faster when actually fighting, but you are faster when selecting your team. :-)
If you want to improve your generalists team, look out for a Blissey.
Vaporeon is the best attacker into rhydon and fire-type defenders with type advantage - this way i regard it as a specialist and would prefer it for these matchups.
Yes, indeed, it can be used as a generalist attacker too, it has elite stats and only stab-movesets.
It is resisted by gyarados, dragonite and vaporeon, so i see a slight (ignorable) restriction to its general usability.
Your team (presumably for attacking) is excellent and any player will be happy to have your attacking lineup.
The only possible weak link is your lack of a Tyranitar with either Bite/SE or Bite/Crunch.
There are also great attackers/specialists that can improve your team even further and you can look into catching/hatching/evolving some/all of the following:
- DT/H Dragonite
- Hydropump Vaporeon
- Bullet Seed/Solar Beam Exeggcutor
- Fire Spin/Overheat Flareon
- Thunderbolt/Discharge Jolteon
Tyranitar isn't good? Is better don't power up ?
I have also another pokemon with great IVs.
Vaporeon with best defensive moveset 98%
Exeggutor ZH/SoB 91%
Two Rhydon 91% 93&
Dragonite 93% Steel Wing/ Outrage
Blissey 91% with DB
Espeon 91% C/FuS
What do you think? I can power up one of these? Or you can help me with another pokemon?
"Vaporeon with best defensive moveset 98%" - if that is Aqua tail, then power up, is is also best move for dodge all scenario and close to HP Vap if you only dodge charge moves.
Exe - power up, I think will outperform your Gyarados on some fights (I don't have a SoB Exe, I only imagine comparing with my Psychic ones)
SW/O Dragonite - I have one, I like it from the few battles I did. Worth powering up for gym placement anyway
Espeon - very fast kills
What move is DB for Blissey?
The rest depends on moves;
Do you only fight gyms by yourself? If you fight with other players occasionally, then adding in some pokemon with multi-bar charge moves can help. Multi-bar charge moves can be used sooner/more frequently and waste less energy/damage which are both really helpful when fighting with teammates because fights are faster and shorter.
I really like:
Vaporeon with Aqua Tail
-I have three now powered up higher than my highest Hydro Pump Vaporeon and a forth that I am considering since I use them for both offense and defense. Great against Rhydon and Tyranitar.
Exeggutor with Confusion/Seedbomb
-My old reliable defender that sadly never places high enough in gyms near me anymore but is a great generalist, albiet a bit difficult to dodge with. Extrasensory or Bullet Seed would be a bit easier to dodge with and Bullet Seed would give a double grass moveset that could be used against Vaporeon. Solarbeam deals more damage, but has a lot of potential for wasting some of that damage against any opponent other than Snorlax or Blissey.
Gyarados with Bite/Outrage
-My frequent go to now against Dragonites because it takes so long to scroll down to Lapras.
