I am on pokemon emerald, and am at the Psychic gym. On the trainer battle the Claydol (Earthquake) rapes everything except my gyrrados, and the Xatu just acts as the clean up crew.

Blaziken lvl 36. Blaze Kick, Bulk Up, double Kick, Fire Blast. Bold
Vibrava lvl 37. Crunch, Sand Attack, Dragonbreath, sand toumb. Impish

Swellow lvl 34. Fly, Wing attack, aerial ace, qiuck attack. Adamant
Gyarados lvl 39. Surf, twister, Bite, Dragon Rage. Timid
Lairon lvl 33. Iron tail, Rock Tomb, Roar, Headbutt. Careful


I have caught new Pokemon which may be better here they are

Wobuffet lvl 28. Counter, Mirror Coat, Safeguard, Destiny Bond lonley
Shuppet lvl 30. Screech, Night Shade, Curse, Spite. Careful

Good, u got a Snorunt. I suggest adding it in the team and train it until it evolves. Glalie has levitation, which could be useful when battling that annoying Claydol. If you can, save up some money to buy the TM Blizzard. Absol may also be useful when battling most of the twins pokemon. Try to make it learn Crunch and Night Shade, keep Swords Dance cause that move can be fatal for your foes. As for that Solrock, try to teach Gyarados Hydro Pump (Also bought). If you have the time, try training Wailmer for a while, its evolution is invincible against advantages. Save the Manetric for the Xatu. You could do it the hard way by evolving a Ralts to Gardevior then teaching it Thunderbolt and other weaknesses (Not Recommended)

anywhere you would recommend to train these?

And would training a tropius help much?

Training Tropius wouldnt help much, especially with that Solrock in. However, he could be useful in future gyms. The pokemon that i recommend are Snorunt (To destroy that Xatu and Lunatone) and Absol (Basically all the Pyschics weakness). Teach that Gyarados Hydro Pump if u got the money to buy the TM. Mantric could be useful incase Snorunt/Glalie dies.
-Gyarados
-Manetric
-Absol
-Glalie (or Snorunt if u couldnt evolve it)
-Any
-Any

You've got it kinda tough, seeing as your starter is half Fighting. When I went against this gym first, took me a long time too. Done it about 6 or 7 more times since then in Sapphire 'cause of boredom...anyway.

The Snorunt is a good idea, evolve it, teach Crunch and Ice Beam or Blizzard. I prefer Ice Beam because it hits more steadily and can be used more.

Absol is one of my personal favorites, solid attack, not bad movepool with TM/HMs, but it may take too long to get it up to a respectable level. And if I remember right, those two pull off the Sunny Day/Solarbeam combo, right? You might wanna teach someone Rain Dance to cancel that and also to dampen Solrock's fire moves.

Replace Gyarados' Surf with Waterfall, it works lots better with the physical damage. Gyarados' special attack is awful.

Y' might wanna switch these moves...
-Blaziken's Bulk Up. It helps for long battles, but you lose a turn. And two turns of Psychic is probably all it'll take for a KO.
-Vibrava's Sand Tomb and Sand-Attack. To be blunt, they're useless...
-Lairon's Roar. It won't really help, seeing as the next Pokemon out will also get in a free hit... Might wanna change Rock Tomb as well. It doesn't really do anything damage-wise, especially against Solrock and Lunatone and isn't the most accurate, if I remember correctly.

Wailord is good, but it needs 20 more levels. It'll take a long time.

A tip is to go around beating up trainers for cash (that sounded wrong ), then buy as many Revives and Hyper Potions as possible. Just kinda...stall, if things start looking bad.
