First, let me tell you that the higher level your team is the easier this will be. Opponents very from Levels 45 to 61. Your pokemon should be anywhere from 50 to 55. If you need to level 45 at the absolut lowest. ITEMS:20 to 30 Revives, 80 Full Restores or 50 Hyper Potions with 10 of each status healer except for Awakanings. You can wake a pokemon from sleep by calling it. At least 40 Ultra balls because these Shadow Pokemon are probably the hardest in the game to catch. I suggest having as many Ultra Balls as you can. The Team: This is the team I used and it totally owned because the first time my pokemon were level 55 and the next time they were around level 65 Umbreon, Espeon, Quagsire, Entei, Raikou, and Forretress I didn't use Forretress but it is a good staller while you heal other pokemon. Have Umbreon and Entei first as they can cream the first 4 trainers fairly easily. Make sure you have Raikou second because I am pretty sure you don't get to heal in between battles. Do not use Enteis Flamethrower or Fire Blast on anyone except the 4th person or afterwords unless you have Ethers to spare. Try and snag every shadow pokemon since they are so annoying to battle over again and trust me on one of my other memory cards I missed them all and it took me forever to catch them. First person has 3 normal types: Porygon 2, Zangoose and Miltank. Overpower the opponents pokemon by having both your teammates attacking it. Snag the miltank. Second person has 3 dark types : mightyena, sharpedo, and absol. Entei should be fine agains sharpedo, just hit it with both of your pokemon. Overpower mightyena and then SNAG ABSOL Third person has 3 fire types : torkoal, magcargo and houndoom. Switch Entei out for Quagsire and have Umbreon heal anyone that is hurt at all. Use surf with Quagsire and Umbreon can do whatever. Don't use Surf if it will kill houndoom. Just either try to snag houndoom or kill her other 3 pokemon. Fourth person has 4 grass types that can be a pain. They are:Cradily,Vileplume, Cacturne and Tropius.Fire won't work on Cradily so you might have some trouble with that.Use Enteis fire attacks to cream this person while your other pokemon goes for the snag on Tropius. Your pokemon are healed after this battle to. The Fifth person is a kind of pre boss. He/She has a walrein, gardevoir, dusclops, blaziken, xatu and metagross. Use Electric on Walrein and Xatu. Use dark attacks on Dusclops, Gardevoir and Xatu,(yes Xatu is weak to Electric and Dark). Hit Blazikan with water obvisouly. Work down Metagross and snag him. Trust me when I say this, he is almost impossible to catch. He can be caught but it is very difficult. He wasted like 15 of my Ultra Balls if I remember correctly. Do not use your Master Ball unless you want a very difficult next battle and by this I mean the hardest thing EVER WITH A SADOW POKEMON THAT IS HARDER TO CATCH THAN METAGROSS. THE SIXTH PERSON IS THE FINAL BOSS. I WON'T REVEAL HIS/HER NAME,BUT THEY ARE EXTREMELY HARD AND EASY AT THE SAME TIME. THEY HAVE A SCIZOR,SLAKING, SALAMENCE, MACHAMP, SLOWKING AND A SHADOW TIRANITAR YOU DO NOT WANT THE BOSS TO HAVE TYRANITAR AND SLAKING OUT AT THE SAME TIME. IF THEY DO YOU ARE IN SOME REALLY BIG TROUBLE, TRUST ME I HAD TO FACE THIS COMBO AND IT WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. How to Beat Each Pokemon SCIZOR - ENTEI AND HIS FIRE MOVES SLAKING - ANYONE YOU WANT THAT IS STRONG SALAMENCE- QUAGSIRE AND ICE BEAM (YES IT CAN LEARN ICE BEAM) (TM13) MACHAMP - ESPEON AND PSYBEAM/PSYCHIC SLOWKING - RAIKOU AND THUNDER/THUNDERBOLT OR UMBREON AND BITE/FAINT ATTACK TYRANITAR- ANYONE THAT CAN WEAKEN HIM TO SNAG HIM OR JUST USE YOUR MASTER BALL SEE WHAT IMEAN THAT WAS EASY AND HARD WASN'T IT cONGRATULATIONS YOU JUST BEAT THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
