So I'm (obviously) a newer Pokémon player, and I wanted some advice for my SoulSilver team. I'm not overly far into the game (I just recently beat Pryce) but I wanted to see how my team looks so far. I know everyone on here is helpful, so I figured I'd ask around here!
Notes: Again, no replacing, because he's my starter. Also, I'm ashamed of having Cut on him; when I needed it at first he was the only one who could learn it. What other Pokémon should I put it on, or should I just not bother?
Notes: I overleved Teena before battling Pryce, and so she currently sits happily at the back of my party ready to jump into action when needed. Again, she is one I could replace if needed. I'm quicker to get rid of her than Killer, however.
That's my team so far, and I really do need input! I'm looking for different moveset changes and if necessary, team changes. Please and thank you!
Aerial Ace would be a big help on her because of STAB and the fact that they generally are stronger with physical attacks. U-Turn is good for getting out of sticky situations, as is Roost. And Quick Attack is good for when you need to get a quick hit in, but don't be afraid to replace it with a stronger move. Oops, can't believe I forgot Fly, but it is also a physical move; however, it has a little less accuracy and takes a delayed turn, but it is powerful.
Run Away ability

Well, unfortunately there is not much to Eevee until it evolves. Flareon has ridiculously high Attack, but its Special Attack isn't horrible, so mixing up its moves isn't a bad idea. I'd recommend at least Fire Fang. But it has such a diverse move pool that includes Shadow Ball, Will-o-Wisp, Toxic, Overheat, Flamethrower...that the rest should be up to you.
Again, such a diverse moveset. I'd focus on Special Attacking moves to make the best of its power. Shadow Ball is definitely a good fit, Extrasensory can be replaced by Psychic, if you wish. It can also learn Attract, Silver Wind, Flamethrower, Shock Wave, Water Pulse, Wish.
Ah, Croconaw. A definite must is to stick with physical attacks here, his SpA is just not good. Ice Fang is a good choice, Ice Punch is better, but I believe that requires BP to get. Bite, replace with Crunch when you reach lv32. Water Gun should be replaced with Aqua Tail or Waterfall; Waterfall is better as it has more accuracy. And the last space should either be Brick Break or Earthquake.
I know you said that you'd like to keep this guy on your team, and I'm not going to tell you that you must get rid of him, but compared with the rest of your teammates, having two water types and two flying types on your team really isn't your best option. IMO I think you should make Killer your HM holder so that your other teammates don't have to waste their moves. However, if you're adamant, good moves for Gyarados are Dragon Dance, Waterfall, Earthquake, and Stone Edge.
