Can anybody suggest a sixth member for my team with a potential moveset and review the team I have here?

It would be much appreciated. Thank You.

I honestly don't know what a Nidoking has to do with a Dragon team, but nonetheless.

Blast Burn is a pretty bad move, and in almost all cases (except if you are about to faint anyway), using two Flamethrowers will do more damage and allows switching or items. You only have special attacks on Dragonite. It has decent special attack, but its attack stat is too high not to use. Gyarados has pretty pathetic special attack, if you must use a special attack, use Surf, as it still gets STAB. Also Hyper Beam is an awful move, just don't use it. Dig and Thrash are pretty bad also. Nidoking has decent enough special attack to use moves like Flamethrower and Ice Beam. Don't use Flamethrower on Aerodactyl, I'm sorry to say this but you just wasted 4000 coins on nothing. For the last team spot, if you still want to use the a dragonish Pokémon, Lance used a Lapras and Kangaskhan in Stadium.

Thanks for the advice. I'm revising the moves for my potential team and I think I've got things sorted out. How about this:


Moves:
Flamethrower
Dragon Claw
Focus Punch (for Rock weakness)
Substitute



Moves:
Outrage
Brick Break
Thunderbolt
Thunder Wave



Moves:
Hydro Pump (Although Gyarados has weak Sp. Atk, it's the most powerful STAB move I can give it and it still has decent accuracy).
Body Slam
Earthquake
Dragon Dance



Moves:
Megahorn
Brick Break
Flamethrower
Ice Beam


Moves:
Rock Slide
Fly
Strength
Steel Wing



Moves:
Surf
Ice Beam
Psychic
Confuse Ray


*Nidoking looks like a Dinosaur so in that respect, I guess he's Dragon-ish.
