i saw the thread on here about Sinnoh teams, and since there’s so many badass unova pokemon, i’m wondering what your guys’ BW/BW2 teams were

I’ve unfortunately never really owned Black and White, I’ve only borrowed it from a friend when I was younger, so I don’t remember exactly what my team was. I know Snivy was my starter though
As for BW2 I definitely remember
SNAAKE the Serperior :serperior:
Blu the azumarill :azumarill:
Geno the Scolipede :scolipede:
N’s Zoroark :zoroark:
Tim the Conkeldurr :conkeldurr:
Bird the unfezant :unfezantf: (such a creative name I know, she was a shiny one I ran into too)

Oh cool this sounds fun.

Concheror the Samurott
Whack-A the Excadrill
A nickname so bad I won't be sharing it the Scrafty
Powerhouse the Reuniclus
Spindler the Galvantula
Bristle the Druddigon

Burnout the Emboar
Iona the Magnezone
I forgot the name the Crobat
Sparx the Flygon
I don't remember the name, knowing me I probably named it Bambi the Sawsbuck
If I were to name it today I'd call it Quasar. I don't remember it's actual name, the Starmie.

Oooh good choices. So many good Pokémon in gen 5. Hope to use a reuniclus on my next run of it, I really like psychic Pokémon and I love it’s design too. Should probably try out scrafty too. Hopefully won’t give it a horrible nickname like yours

Good old Gen 5, it is my favorite generation and the generation in which the Pokemon games peaked (at least IMO).

Since it is my favorite Generation that means that I played it a lot (at least two times with every starter) so I have a lot of great teams but I'll only tell you about my first as well as (for now) last teams I had in both BW and BW2.

- Samurott :samurott:
- Excadrill :excadrill:
- Leavanny :leavanny:
- Darmanitan :darmanitan:
- Galvantula :galvantula:
- Tornadus :tornadus: / Sawk :sawk:

After the main story I replaced Tornadus with Sawk because I didn't like the fact that I was using a Legendary on my in-game team. So I caught a Sawk and used it as my 6th Pokemon during the post-game and the Elite 4 rematches.

- Serperior :serperior:
- Lucario :lucario:
- Arcanine :arcanine:
- Crustle :crustle:
- Jolteon :jolteon:
- Lapras :lapras:

This is probably my favorite playthrough team I ever had. This team and this playthorugh were so amazing for me that they made B2W2 become my favorite Pokemon games of all time.

- Basilisk the Serperior :serperior:
- Amun-Ra the shiny Arcanine :arcanine: (found it after only around 600 REs in Virbank Complex)
- Valentine the Swoobat :swoobat:
- Big Shaq the Scrafty :scrafty:
- Davy Jones the Jellicent (Male) :jellicent:
- Pangaea the Mamoswine :mamoswine:

I also used Smogon the Weezing :weezing: for most of the main story but I had to put him in the Box after I reached the Giant Chasm and caught Piloswine because I really wanted to use a Mamoswine on my team.

- Poseidon the Samurott :samurott:
- Ivy the Lilligant :lilligant:
- Ferdinand the Bouffalant :bouffalant: ( after obtaining my first Badge I traded a Bouffalant Egg over from my White 2 so I can have it a lot earlier than it is normally available in the game)
- Tamatoa the Crustle :crustle:
- Odin the Haxorus :haxorus:
- Vesuvious the shiny Camerupt :camerupt: (I shiny hunted for a Camerupt in White 2 and I finally found it after almost 14k REs so when I beat 5th Gym Badge in White I traded the shiny Camerupt over and added it to the team for the rest of the game)

Pokemon Black from memory:
- Serperior :serperior:
- Seismitoad :seismitoad: (shiny)
- Scrafty :scrafty:
- Chandelure :chandelure:
- Beartic :beartic:
- Beheeyem :beheeyem: or Boldore :boldore:.

Initially took Purrloin :purrloin:. Disliked its evolution :liepard:. Felt really weak too.

Grew tired of evolutions looking far worse than the previous form. Caught Scraggy :scraggy:. Works like the ugly duckling, right? Cannot possibly become uglier. (Wrong. Still kept it.)

May have dropped Boldore :boldore: after discovering the trade evolution requirement.

Can't believe Ashley is really going to take that from Deva.

White was the second Pokemon game I ever played, so my final team came together quite haphazardly, over the course of the run and with several substitutions. I used a Simipour and a Zebstrika for a lot of the game. The final product shook out pretty well and now they're all in their low nineties. I should make a final push for 100.

:serperior:
-Cut
-Strength
-Coil
-Leaf Blade

:gigalith:
-Stone Edge
-Rock Slide
-Earthquake
-Flash Cannon

:unfezantf:
-U-turn
-Fly
-Quick Attack
-uh...Air Slash or Return, I think

:jellicent:
-Surf
-Waterfall
-Ice Beam (sometimes Dive)
-Shadow Ball

:zekrom:
-Fusion Bolt
-Zen Headbutt
-Crunch
-Dragon Claw

:victini:
-Flare Blitz
-Flame Charge
-Zen Headbutt
-Brick Break

This was the first in-game team I raised all the way to level 100. The postgame, especially Black Tower, made it practically effortless. I used a Stoutland near the beginning of the game until I could find more teammates but otherwise this crew was with me pretty much the whole time.

:emboar:
-Flare Blitz
-Flame Charge
-Brick Break
-Strength

:leavanny:
-Cut
-X-Scissor
-Leaf Blade
-Poison Jab

:golduck:
-Surf
-Waterfall
-Psychic
-Ice Beam

:jolteon:
-Thunderbolt
-Thunder
-Shadow Ball
-Signal Beam

:excadrill:
-Earthquake
-Iron Head
-Rock Slide
-Shadow Claw

:sigilyph:
-Fly
-Air Slash
-Pyschic
-Ice Beam

Haven't played since it first released but I think this was my team for Black:

Emboar, Unfezant (not as good as Staraptor I found out), Simisage (bit disappointing since it looked cool), Stoutland (I remember loving Retaliate), Gothitelle (a bit of a disappointment - it was very frail and couldn't deal the hits), and Vanilluxe (meh).

Overall, I didn't like my Black team.

I never finished White 2!

@Typhlosion: I have no idea how on earth you can remember your move sets as well, did you end up going back to check your cartridge?

@ZxCv I mean, sort of? I still have all my old cartridges and save files, and every now and then I like to cycle through and play each of them for a while. Plus, getting them all to such high levels, I did spend a while with those moves!
