    "Luxray has a rather limited skill pool but this is offset by its really high attack stat. Crunch is for Lucian while thunderfang is its best physical stab. Then some irontail and strength for coverage and you're good to go."

    "It's a great choice to go up against Lucian. Use Crunch for some important coverage then, Wood-hammer and Earthquake for stab. Pair it with Luxray for its high attack stat and thunderfang skill."

    "You can get Buizel very early in the game so this will be easier to plan out. Give it Ice beam or ice punch and it will do well against garchomp and should be able to out-speed it as well with a high enough level. Focus blast skill for some power and brick-break to cover."

    "It takes a little longer to get him but once you reach Iron Island, you will. Aura-sphere is a nice stab skill. The extreme-speed skill is good for finishing things off quickly. It won't be as fast as garchomp but it could if leveled high enough."

    "Get Gengar for your ghost/psychic pokemon as it will go against bugs, poison, and other psychic or dark pokemon. It also has a lot of special moves like thunderbolt which makes it very adaptable."

    "Alakazam is a great choice for a ghost/psychic pokemon if you don't have Gengar. Both have high sp. attack stats and special moves. It has shockwave which is a nice sweeper move."

    "A good pokemon to have for breaking down defensive cores. It has a solid 120 attack and 100 speed base stats. It doesn't have a particularly high defense so better get in those hits quick."

    "A non legendary pokemon in platinum but is your best bet against the Ice gym and you can get it early in the game. It's very fast, second only to flying types. Be cautious with ground and rock moves and you'll be fine. Thankfully as well, there is no water specialist in the Elite 4."
