Pokemon League advice for Platinum. What level-ish group would you recommend having before taking them on for the first time? I just run with whatever I catch, not competitive breeding. And I lean towards direct damage attacks, rarely keeping status changes, unless I find them very helpful, like Dragon Dance for Gyarados. I typically run with: Magmortar (currently 54) Gyarados (Currently54) Luxray (currently 52) Machamp/Giratina (Currently 51/52) Rhyperior/Rapidash (currently 41/50) Meganium (currently 52) I assume that you can save/heal between the matches, is that correct?
