Cute Pokemon Team?  
So, I'm trying to assemble a very powerful yet cute Pokemon team. Not a team that has a high cute stat, I mean really cute/adorable/pretty Pokemon. And I realize this is completely subjective, but I'd like some ideas.

Here's what I'm looking for

- Must be able to be caught in Platinum
- Must be able to be caught before the Elite Four
- Must be powerful, or able to become powerful (AKA must be able to help defeat Elite Four)

There's definitely going to be a Blissey, and maybe a Togekiss if I can do it.

What are your suggestions/Move Sets? I thought this would be the best place to ask. Mods, if this is out of place, please delete.

Maybe Roserade or Clefable? Unfortunately, you're really limited if you just go by 'mons you can get before the Elite Four.

I know, it's really sad. But, gotta work with what you have. I'll ask this question again after I get the National.

Roserade? I like that pokemon a lot, and works really nicely with what I've got planned.

I vote Roserade too! I used one on my Platinum team for the Elite Four. :)

Clefable!
It's able to learn many TM-moves and Wonderguard is a very useful ability because it prevents Clefable from getting hurt from Burn, Toxic, etc.

I was thinking about Clefable, actually! I'm glad there's other people on that same wave length!
brainflavoured on March 6th, 2010 04:41 pm (UTC)
Clefable is my favourite, I always have to have one on my team :D

Lopunny might also be a good option for you.
sethingtonink_kee on March 6th, 2010 05:50 pm (UTC)
You mean Magic Guard, not Wonder Guard. Although Wonder Guard on Clefable would be pretty damn awesome.

Azumarill with Huge Power and Waterfall is an adorable force to be reckoned with. :D
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Mario - Paper Peachdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 04:12 pm (UTC)
Huge Power? Does it learn that move, or is it a TM move? And if so, where can I find the TM?
katisconfused: ummm...katisconfused on March 6th, 2010 04:16 pm (UTC)
it's an ability

Huge Power: The power of the Pokémon’s attacks is doubled; the effect is halved if the ability is changed (Skill Swap).
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Pokemon - Team Rocketdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 04:17 pm (UTC)
OH I SEE. I swear, I never heard of that move before, so I was like 'What?'

Thank you!

The Togepi line is one of my cutest favorite line. Togekiss is able to learn Aura Sphere which is one of my favourite moves
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Mario - Paper Peachdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 04:21 pm (UTC)
I really want to get a Togekiss on my team eventually, even if it takes me until AFTER the Elite 4.
Honeylovedbyahero on March 6th, 2010 05:13 pm (UTC)
It didn't take me long. Maybe a day or so to evolve her from Togepi to Togetic and then to use the stone. She's now one of my strongest pokemon!
glowstarducky: Pokemonglowstarducky on March 6th, 2010 05:13 pm (UTC)
Togekiss isn't hard to raise in time for E4, it's one of my Platnium powerhouses.

*hearts my Togekiss*
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Persona - Fuukadutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 05:16 pm (UTC)
Certianly not, I just always have a trouble with that dang Friendship level. Hopefully I know what to do this time.


...and can find a Shiny stone. 8|

When you get it, stick a Soothe Bell on it and go bike like a maniac. As for Shiny Stones, you find some as you play the game. I think there's one in Iron Island.
katisconfused: dancekatisconfused on March 6th, 2010 04:15 pm (UTC)
Define cute. :p
Quagsire with water absorb is relatively useful and cute, Raichu has decent punch to it. Any Eeveelution is cute and so are mesprit, uxie and azelf are cute and legendary.
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Pokemon - Team Rocketdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 04:19 pm (UTC)
For me, it's Pokemon like the Clefairy line, and the Togepi Line, and the Chansey line, Marill line, pretty much every baby Pokemon ever, and the like. If that helps.
katisconfused: muahkatisconfused on March 6th, 2010 04:25 pm (UTC)
You know, if you can't get the pokemon by catching it you can always trade it in. I suggest mews ¬¬
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Pokemon - Blushing Volknerdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 04:27 pm (UTC)
Mews are adorable, yes, but I should've mentioned that I don't have easy access to a WiFi connection. I actually need to go to a resturant in the next town over to get on, so trading Pokemon at all is a giant pain.
katisconfused: ummm...katisconfused on March 6th, 2010 04:45 pm (UTC)
That sucks :(
Ah well, mews are actually a bitch to raise as a main team pokemon. It learns attacks only every 10 levels and doesn't lean any special attacks until level 30 :/
You also have to level it up to 100 to finish it's moveset (really, does anyone NOT want aura sphere on their mew?)

Clefable, Wigglytuff, Raichu, Sandslash, Bellossom, Drifblim, Dugtrio, Persian, Slowbro, Lickitung, EEVEELUTIONS, Omastar, Furret, Togepi line, Marrill line, Quagsire, Shuckle, Porygon line, Miltank, Delcatty, Wailmer, Spinda, Chimecho, Luvdisc, Pachirisu, Combee, Cherrim, Buneary... Apologies in advance if you can't catch some before the national 'dex, or they're not cute enough- I'm the person who thinks Gyarados is adorable. XD

Most normal types are awesome and well rounded or powerful. Miltank, Clefable, Snorlax, that sort of thing.
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Pokemon - Blushing Volknerdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 04:30 pm (UTC)
Definitely getting a Drifblim for sure, but I don't know if a lot of those are catchable right now, but they are all absolutely adorable and I'm sure I can eventually make a team with all of them. (Good choices. Gyarados is also kind of adorable, so I can't blame you.)

You can get Drifloon every Friday at the windworks. Only one though, so save before fighting it.
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Mario - Paper Peachdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 06:02 pm (UTC)
Oh, that one, I have already. Raised it to level 21 now.
☆ KIRABOSHIgardevoirs on March 6th, 2010 04:34 pm (UTC)
What about a Vaporeon? I think they're cute, and they've got great stats to boost. :D As for moves, Surf and Ice Beam are musts, and since it's only for the E4, you can fill ion the others with whatever.

But really, I think all the Eeveelutions are cute and are team-worthy. Vaporeon just stands out because of its stats, typing and coverage.

As for other options, I can only think of Porygon-Z if you think that's cute, Altaria and maybe Gardevoir (not at all biased here :xxx).
Petrel Accidentally My Ovaries: Pokemon - Team Rocketdutchess_axel on March 6th, 2010 04:40 pm (UTC)
It's probably going to be used for Battle Frontier and maybe, if I get a good WiFi connection that allows me to hop online, I'll do some online battling for sure.

I think I like Umbreon the best, but Vaporeon is simply adorable, so you're right on that count.

I was thinking Gardevoir, because that's a pretty/beautiful Pokemon, which I also want on my team.
xcossard on March 6th, 2010 04:47 pm (UTC)
clefable! i don't know if you think milotic is cute, but it is definitely pretty. leafeon and roserade?
i can't remember my exact team when i beat the elite four but i know for sure i had blissey, clefable, togekiss, and leafeon. i only like to use cute pokemon too haha
♔falchiar on March 6th, 2010 04:56 pm (UTC)
I have a Clefable I Pal Park'd and she's a beast with Meteor Mash :3

My Togekiss is pretty hardcore, but I really like the Azumarill option!

I haven't seriously trained any Eeveelution besides Umbreon, but I think Leafeon is a good option too!

And Swablu/Altaria. I've always wanted to seriously train one myself, so I think you should go for that too.
lazy susan, turn yourself around.: pkmn - driflady.instrumentality on March 6th, 2010 07:39 pm (UTC)
Altaria is intense. I highly recommend one.
scarlet_pencil on March 6th, 2010 05:52 pm (UTC)
I second Vaporeon, I have one and it has godlike stats and can hit pretty much EVERYTHING for neutral damage. And Vaporeon are just awesome in general. ;)

Drifloon can be caught in front of the Valley Windworks every Friday.

I don't know if you'd consider Froslass to be a cute Pokemon, but she's also an option. ^^

Captain Sexy Bidoof Williamschainofironrose on March 6th, 2010 06:03 pm (UTC)
Miltank is catchable in Pt and an extremely good Pokemon. Fast, with a healing move and a decent moveset. The only thing she doesn't excel in is special attack but you can always teach her the elemental punches or Return.
Eruannaeruannatel on March 6th, 2010 06:11 pm (UTC)
Teddiursa for certainz omg.
Iris: giratinatonberrygrrl on March 6th, 2010 06:54 pm (UTC)
Mesprit, Azelf, and Uxie make me squee. ♥ Azelf is also very powerful.
Darkloid_Bluesmaverickz3r0 on March 6th, 2010 08:29 pm (UTC)
Yanma (Great Marsh) is viable without evolving it, I know this because I've used it. It makes an excellent and very fast sleeper.

Same with Tangela.

...Well, I think they're cute, anyway.
hey_gaizhey_gaiz on March 7th, 2010 04:29 pm (UTC)
Octillery is cute...
