How to put together a balanced team in Pokemon Black and White

Pokemon - White Version ROM cover
So you’ve decided to play Pokemon Black and White (more about the game: https://romshero.com/roms/nintendo-ds/pokemon-white-version-2). What you need? That’s right, a balanced team! This article will tell you what to do … and yes, all the Pokemon listed in this article will be listed on their base form.

Visit information resources about Pokemon. Bulbapedia, serebii.net, Unova – browse these sites and think about which Pokemon of each type you like the most. This will help you decide who will be on your team.

Find herbal, fiery and water Pokemon. You will get starting Pokemon, here everything is clear, and here further … Suppose, you will begin with Tepig and Pansage then water Pokemon – Tympole, Tirtouga or Frillish will be useful. If you start with Snivy and Panpour, then fiery Pokemon like Darumaka, Litwick or Heatmor will serve you faithfully. If you start with Oshawott or Pansear, look for herbal Pokemon such as Sewaddle, Deerling, Ferroseed, Petilil or Cottonee.

Find a flying Pokemon. Flying Pokemon is a good choice, in Unova they will be strong fighters. However, this is not the main thing, the main thing is that they will be able to learn the movement of “HM Fly”, with which you can move between locations through the air. Good flying Pokemon are Pidove, Vullaby, Rufflet, Archen, Sigilyphl, Woobat or Ducklett.

Fill the rest of the team with dark, dragon, ice, earth, combat or stone types of Pokemon. Alternatively, double-type Pokemon – Bisharp type, dark steel Pokemon. Good dark Pokemon: Pawniard, Zorua, Deino, Scraggy and Purrloin. Good dragon-type Pokemon: Axew and Druddigon. Good ice pokemon: Vanilite, Cubchoo and Cryogonal. Earthlings: Drilbur, Stunfisk and Sandile. Fighting and good only one – Timbur, as well as stone – Roggenrola.

Remaining space? Pokemon electronic, poisonous, steel, insect, mental, ghostly and normal types are waiting! Electric – Joltik and Tynamo, poisonous – Trubbish, steel – Klink, insects – Venipede, Dwebble, Karrablast, Shelmet and Larvesta. Mental – Gothita, Munna, Solosis and Elgyem. Ghosts … apparently, Yamask. Normal – Lillipup, Patrat, Audino, Minccino and Bouffalant.

Make sure your team is balanced and can repel any enemies. Here, for example, our team: Haxorus, Emboar, Gothitelle, Simisage, Mandibuzz and Seismitoad.


Always have a supply of pokeball on hand. You never know when you’ll find a rare Pokemon.
Train. Run on the grass, find Audino, beat him and get a lot of experience! If you have a Pokemon 34, then fight with the Level 32 Audino.

Things to Avoid

Some legendary Pokemon just can’t be found, remember that.
Purchased Pokemon will not always obey you. If such a Pokemon is of a high level, and you have few Jim Balls, then be careful.
Don’t ONLY train your starting Pokemon. Do not allow a gap of more than 6 in the team levels. Your Pokemon levels can differ by no more than 4.
