#204804 Hello, so my friend runs a server and he want to do a pokemon league and asked me to be a gym leader (beat all player gyms to go to the league). I want to do fire. I currently have Charizard X, Mega Blaziken (with blazikenite), Heatran (can use 1 legendary on the team, I want to go for a different one, maybe Arceus with fire plate?) so far (4 man teams). My question is what legendary could I swap for Heatran (if I should), also what could be my 4th? Im also new to pixelmon so what would be the best moves set up for comp on the 4? Also can you change your mon's nature without the pokemon editor and if so what nature should I go for on them?
Sorry I know it's a lot, I just wanna make it a good team, thanks for reading this even if you dont reply.

If I recall, you can only have one mega pokemon on the team. Unless your friend changed that. The Link I posted is a monotype sample teams. Monotype teams are ONE type teams.

I run a fire gym on my server with 6 pokemon but If I were to make a team of 4 I would use:

** kind of a long post ** But this is for a OU tier setup.
Spoiler:
Darmanitan @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Sheer Force
EV's : 252 Atk, 252 Speed
Adamant Nature
IVs: 0 Sp Atk
- Flare Blitz
- EarthQuake
- Super Power / Rock Slide
- U-Turn

Charizard-Mega-Y @ Charizardite Y
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Fire Blast
- Solar Beam
- Focus Blast
- Roost

Torkoal @ Heat Rock
Ability: Drought
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Lava Plume
- Stealth Rock
- Yawn

Volcarona @ Bug Z

Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Quiver Dance
- Fiery Dance
- Giga Drain

Darmanitan choice scarf suicide lead. Usually 1 shots the first pokemon I fight unless it is a tanky pokemon. Torkoal for the stealth rock, yawn and u-turn setups. Charizard is your special atk wall breaker. Volcorona is your sweeper. Switch him in once you setup some sleeps with yawn for quiver sweeps.

Yawn into Charizard Y to check more immediate threats. With the sun on the field. Fire is boosted, Solar Beam is instant, and you can Roost for sustain if its a defensive wall.

How my battles usually play out. Darmanitan goes in first. Kills 1 monster. U-turns into Torkoal. Torkoal will either stealth rock or yawn. Stealth Rock if the opposing monster is not a threat and Yawn if it is a threat. After the pokemon is slept or switched. I will switch into Volcorona and start quiver dancing into uncontested sweeps.

If the player is good, you essentially juggle between Torkoal yawns and threaten with Darmanitan 1shots / U-turns or set ups. I do have 6 pokemon, SO I use a Rotom Oven in conjunction with this for Volt switch and reflect/light setups.


You can swap Darmanitan for Blazikan with this setup:

Stealth Rock is a problem for Fire Types. Having a defensive clearer is nice. Rotom is Earthquake Immune, so you can switch in for defog/wall into Volt switches. Torkoal is high defence, he will rarely be oneshot by Earth Quake. Using him for niche Yawn setups for Blazikan/Charizard. Although Volt switch provides more offensive tempo
