I think you should consider replacing Vileplume with Breloom. You could catch one at Friend Safari. As far as its moveset goes, try Low Sweep, Mach Punch, Bullet Seed, and either Spore or Stone Edge. For EVs, go with 252 Attack, 4 HP, and put all the rest on Speed. Its item would depend on its last move. If you go with Spore, then you should make it hold Life Orb. If Stone Edge, then it'd be wise to use Choice Band. :] Hope this helps!
for all distractions.

Blastoise can learn Dark Pulse by TM now, which also gets boosted by Mega Launcher, so it doesn't need Bite anymore. Also, Hydro Pump is terrible. You should replace it with something like Flash Cannon.

As for your Gardevoir, you should replace Hypnosis and Dream Eater with coverage moves like Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball, and Energy Ball.
Come play The Great Super Duper Pokemon Battle 2 right here:

My recommendation is, if you keep the vileplume, it can probably learn something other than acid. Do you have access to sludge bomb yet? I don't know if it is available pre-elite 4, though.

Poison is rarely an offensive type, and with the weak base power of acid--it just struck me as odd.

I also recommend ditching the fire blast-- I mean you already have flamethrower, which is better imho. If arcane can learn sunny beam, that might be useful?
