Hopefully this is the right place for the following:

Just came back to Pokemon in anticipation for gen VI, and I'm going to be redoing all my games from gen III to V before I eventually get X or Y, since I've been out for a while.

Started with Sapphire, only a couple of hours in so I'll list the team I intend to have:

Altaria/Salamence (never trained either, so I'll do both)
Sableye (will be replaced with Absol)

As for the last slot I'm not sure if an electric or a water type would benefit me more. What do you guys think?

Also, if there are any glaring weaknesses that I'm missing, please point them out.
Likewise, if you have any suggestions on what I can use as substitutes in the early game (Treecko, Ralts and Sableye until gym four or five might get boring), please feel free to share.

I apologise if this is the wrong place for questions about team-building, but I couldn't find a better one.

Jeez I feel like a complete newbie now, it's been aaaaaages since I played any Poké games. Too long

My R/S/E Team:

- Blaziken
- Aggron
- Manectric
- Wailord
- Mightyena
- Swellow

When I make my team I only like to use Pokémon from the generation of game I'm playing. Obviously there are some that I like and others that I don't, but I always find my 6 favorite from each. I personally would feel weird using older or newer Pokémon depending on what game I'm playing. For example I really like Charizard, but only use him in 1st gen/Kanto games. When a new gen comes out and 100+ new Pokémon are introduced, I feel weird using preexisting Pokémon. That's just me. I like to get a feel for each generations new Pokémon.
I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

Swampert (Bashful, Torrent, King's Rock) Lvl. 82 w/ Earthquake, Ice Beam, Surf, and Brick Break

Crobat (Rash, Inner Focus, Leftovers) Lvl. 82 w/ Shadow Ball, Attract, Fly, and Sludge Bomb

Gardevoir (Sassy, Trace, Brightpowder) Lvl. 82 w/ Fire Punch, Thunderbolt, Psychic, and Double Team

Ursaring (Adamant, Guts, Scope Lens) Lvl. 82 w/ Aerial Ace, Facade, Rock Slide, and Bulk Up

and lastly

Houndoom (Quirky, Early Bird, Focus Band) Lvl. 82 w/ Flamethrower, Counter, Crunch, and Will-O-Wisp

No point in having a 6th if my team's well balanced, not to mention how I just like having 5 poke-mans lol And I actually beat the Elite Four with 3 pokemon since Ursaring and Houndoom aren't available 'til after. It was pretty tough... I honestly don't know if I would do well in an actual tournament with my current team. Would I be able to hold my own?

Level 50 - 55 Poke Cup / Level 100 - Prime Cup
Level 50 & 100 - Gengar - Special / Mixed Attacker
Level 50 & 100 - Snorlax - Tank / Physical Attacker
Level 55 & 100 - Dragonite - Special / Mixed Attacker
Level 55 & 100 100 - Tyranitar - Physical Attacker
Level 55 & 100 - Miltank - Medic
Level 50 & 100 - Metagross - Mixed Attacker
Level 50 - Blissey/Chansey - Medic
Level 50 - Clefable - Special Attacker
Various Pinch Hitters - Possible Weather Manipulator
If you play Gen 3 especially Fire Red / Leaf Green or Emerald on Visual Boy Advance,
If you enjoy straight up Monster Battle's, Talking Strategy, and Trading, Please PM & FR Me

Leaf Green team:

-Rain Dance
-Shadow Ball

-Body Slam
-Brick Break

-Bulk up
-Brick Break

-Aerial Ace
-Dragon Dance
-Dragon Claw

-Ice Beam

-Sunny Day

I didn't realize that Crunch and Dragon Claw were special attacks until after I had made this team which is why Salamance has them. I also wasn't aware Shadow Ball was physical and did nothing when Jolteon used it.
All of their levels are in the high 60s and I have beaten Elite Four Round 2 twice.
