I just finished with gym 2 earlier today. My current team is Braixen, Charmeleon, Pidgeotto, Azurill, Pikachu, and Pansage. I've got Amaura in the mix as well at times and am contemplating going after a Sandile. I'm not going past Cyllage until I'm done training some more; I've got a slight level imbalance to deal with before moving forward.
I played with Pokemon Amie as well today, and that's a lot of fun.
