Black2 Team Help

Not open for further replies.
Hey, this isn't my actual team that I use but i'm still playing the story because i just bought it recently, anyway i'm up to the Wind Gym (Skylar?) and need help with it. I'm also having quite a bit of trouble through the game.
My team: (at the moment)
- Dewott
- Lucario
- Heracross
- Zoroark
- Darumaka
- Drilbur

::Will post all other info later because I do not have my DS at the moment
You should consider going back to Chargestone or Mistralton cave and picking up your favourite Rock/Electric type ^^ That will help you a lot :)
I'd suggest finding some wild Audino and grinding - your team, judging by their status as not being fully evolved, is far too underleveled to fight Skyla. Her team ranges from 40-42, and most of your team that evolves will have reached their final stage by 36(I'm looking at you: Dewott, Drilbur, and Darumaka).

Evolving Drilbur(at level 31) will be very helpful for you, as Excadrill's secondary Steel-typing has a very helpful resist against Skyla's flying moves, as well as the Psychic moves that half of her team carries. That leaves only Skarmory and Swanna as potential problems for Excadrill, which your Darumaka(which should be a Darmanitan at level 35) and Dewott(Samurott at 36) should be able to handle with ease.

While your Lucario is also of the Steel-type, his Fighting-typing as well makes Flying moves neutral, so he won't be too much of a help. You should also have Surf(given to you by Cheren), so I'd slap it on Dewott(if you haven't already) and go to Mistralton Cave and pick up Rock Slide. You'll also need Strength, which you should already have as well(as per the story), but a large number of your team is able to learn it, or you can just find a nice HM Slave. The majority of your team can learn Rock Slide, which will be very beneficial when fighting Skyla(sans Skarmory).
I agree with Audino training, your team seriously seems like it needs it. Also try to avoid using Heracross for this gym unless you use him as a free turn to heal.
If catching other Pokemon is an option try training Klink it has Charge Beam and resists Flying type moves. Also going onto Route 7 and getting a Zebstrika could prove useful should outspeed pretty much everything there and has decent Attack stats

1. Firstly, the Clinic is for competitive teams/moveset ONLY - that means no EV training advice, no in-game teams, nothing but competitive moveset and team advice goes here.

Read the Clinic rules next time Koala.

That goes for the rest of you as well since you evidently all missed it too.
