I'm going to guess this is a HG/SS Team, but it could be Platinum and you traded Gatr over, or even White. At any rate, grinding is really going to be your best friend here. If you make sure every team member is at Lv. 40, then you'll probably be able to beat Clair.

You might want to replace Focus Punch on Togekiss for something like Shadow Ball to take advantage of its Special Attack stat. If you have a heart scale, then use it to get Ice Fang on Feraligatr instead of Cut, and use Waterfall over Surf, as Feraligatr wants Physical Moves to do the most damage it can, even if this is in-game, Feraligatr can really pack a punch with Physical STAB and its Base 105 Attack Stat. You also should make sure to let Gyarados have Ice Fang when it learns it at Lv. 32, as it might come in handy for you. Finally, you may want to look into getting an Ampharos or Jolteon if Gyarados and Kingdra still give you trouble, if you're willing to raise one, that is.

I'll replace Cut with Ice Fang. :)

Togetic Lv.41
Psychic
Shadow Ball
Fly
Metronome

Bob Lv.42

Dragon Dance
Ice Fang
Dragon Rage

Muscle Lv.42
Strength
Revenge
Protect
Thief

Crunchie (Fera) Lv. 44
Crunch
Shadow Claw
Waterfall
Ice Fang (Or Ice Beam)

Jolteon lv. 43
Thunder Fang
Double-Kick
Strength
Pin Missile.

Is this ok?

My comments and changes will be in BOLD.


Togetic Lv.41
Psychic
Shadow Ball
Fly
Wish/Shock Wave/Flamethrower

If you can trade from another game, I highly recommend trading over a Shiny Stone and evolving it into Togekiss. And give Togekiss the following:
-Air Slash
-Aura Sphere
-Roost
-Shock Wave/Flamethrower

That'll be Togekiss's best set. If you can't get a Shiny Stone, then Togetic's set is fine as it is, just replace Metronome.

Bob Lv.42
Earthquake
Dragon Dance
Ice Fang
Waterfall

Earthquake is a Must-Have here, as is Waterfall. Everything else is fine.

Muscle Lv.42
Strength
Revenge/Brick Break
Dig/Bulk Up/
Payback

That's what I can do at the moment. What's the ability? If it's No Guard, then you want Dynamicpunch at Lv51 as your Fighting move. Brick Break is better than Revenge unless you're really slow.


Crunchie (Fera) Lv. 44
Crunch
Shadow Claw
Waterfall
Ice Fang (Or Ice Beam)

What are your SpAtk and Atk stats? If its not too much of a difference, you can go with a mixed set with Ice Beam, Surf, Crunch, Return

Jolteon lv. 43
Thunder Fang
Double-Kick
Strength
Pin Missile.

Not much you can do with Jolteon here. Jolteon should've been taught Shadow Ball instead of Togetic. I'll see what I can do, though.
-Thunderbolt/Discharge/Thunder
-Thunder Wave/Rain Dance
-Charge Beam
-Attract???

Like I said, Jolteon's movepool is pretty shallow. You could try the Rain Dance + Thunder Combo, since that will also power up Gyarados' and Feraligatr's Water attacks. Not much else you can do. Jolteon really needed Shadow Ball.


Hope I helped out a bit. I have no idea what TMs you have, or if you can trade TMs over from other games, so I don't know what other moves you have acess to.

im only gonna comment on 1 pkmn.

togekiss.
imho. togekiss best set is paraflincher.

w/ serene grace + leftovers. almost nothing can hit it.

thunder wave
air slash
aura sphere
extrasensory/roost (alot of people say roost but with the paralyze + flinch, i dont see the need for it but its a good recovery move so do what you like)
