can i please get help on guide lines on how to chosse the right pokemon in order to make Competitive Team.
so far heres what im thinking so far:

kingler(with sheer force Ability)
moves: crab hammer, superpower

Genesect: thunder, bug buzz, gunk shot

Arcanine: wild charge, fire blast, outrage
Kingler lacks enough moves to take advantage of Sheer Force (i.e. moves that have a chance to occur, such as Rock Slide, which has a 30% chance of flinching), so Hyper Cutter is the preferred ability:
-Swords Dance
-Agility
-Crabhammer
-Return/X-Scissor
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 48 HP/252 Atk/208 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Hyper Cutter

or
-Crabhammer
-Double-Edge/Return
-Superpower
-X-Scissor
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Hyper Cutter

But then again, Kingler isn't seen often in standard play due to having imbalanced stats; while it has high Attack and Defense, its Special stats and HP are low and its Speed is average. Try something else like Starmie. It can learn Rapid Spin to clear entry hazards:
-Hydro Pump/Surf
-Ice Beam
-Thunderbolt
-Rapid Spin/Recover
Nature: Timid
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Leftovers/Life Orb
Ability: Natural Cure

Genesect has a wide special movepool to take advantage of. Gunk Shot has terrible coverage, so don't bother with it. It makes a good scout with Choice items:
-U-turn
-Ice Beam
-Thunderbolt/Bug Buzz
-Flamethrower/Bug Buzz
Nature: Hasty/Naive
EVs: 8 HP/248 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Scarf

or
-U-turn
-Ice Beam
-Flamethrower
-Thunderbolt/Bug Buzz
Nature: Hasty/Naive
EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Expert Belt/Focus Sash

or
-Bug Buzz
-U-turn
-Ice Beam
-Thunderbolt
Nature: Naive/Hasty
EVs: 4 Atk/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Specs

or
-Rock Polish
-Ice Beam
-Flamethrower
-Thunderbolt/Bug Buzz
Nature: Timid/Modest
EVs: 252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

or
-U-turn
-Iron Head
-Flamethrower/Zen Headbutt
-Explosion/Ice Beam
Nature: Naughty/Lonely
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band

Arcanine should generally focus on physical attacks, since its physical movepool is decent:
-Flare Blitz
-ExtremeSpeed
-Wild Charge/Crunch
-Close Combat/Morning Sun
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 72 HP/252 Atk/8 SDef/176 Spe
Item: Life Orb
Ability: Intimidate/Flash Fire
