My 'Alpha Team,' the one that I played through Platinum with:
William (Infernape) -- blaze kick + close combat + swords dance
Jasper (Crobat) -- nasty plot + sludge bomb + air slash
Fae (Gardevoir) -- calm mind + will-o-wisp + special attacks
Tiburon (Garchomp) -- all-out attacker
Zalika (Milotic) -- hypnosis + surf + dragon pulse + recover
Maurice (Weavile) -- swords dance + night slash + ice shard
Incidentally, they were also the characters in the first stories I thought up, though I never wrote them down. As I recall, William was nominally the leader but had confidence issues, he was helped by Fae who was well-meaning but developed a drug problem, Jasper played pranks on anyone and everything, Tiburon was the Kopaka of Pokemon, and Maurice suffered traumatic head injury and memory loss... Zalika was the only one who was even remotely normal.
More recent: my team from Y:
Elaine (Greninja) -- protean + wise glasses + special attacks
Fiera (Blaziken) -- swords dance + speed boost + kicking attacks
Emil (Tyrantrum) -- dragon dance + 3 attacks
Melanie (Umbreon) -- leftovers + curse + moonlight + payback
Luther (Trevenant) -- will-o-wisp + 3 attacks
Dimitri (Hawlucha) -- fly + high jump kick + roost
Dimitri was later replaced by Raven (Yveltal) 'cause, in the story I imagined, Dimitri died during that battle, much to the distress of Emil, who'd more or less been raised as his son.
I haven't played Pokemon games in well over a year, but I still credit them with sparking the imagination that's got me into writing today.
