I'm just about to challenge the Elite Four on Fire red (I know it doesn't really matter that much about your team ingame, but I don't want to make bad decisions). Please can you look at my team and tell me how to make it better?

This is my team atm:

Dragonair lv34 Bashful Nature

Thunder Wave
Twister
Dragon Rage
Slam

Ability: Shed Skin

I am planning to evolve Dragonair into a Dragonite later on, so which moves should I teach it?

Snorlax lv34 Careful nature

Body Slam
Earthquake
Rest
Snore

Ability: Immunity

Pidgeot lv38 Calm nature

Fly
Steel Wing
Wing Attack
Aerial Ace

Ability: Keen Eye

Arcanine lv39 Relaxed nature

Bite
Take Down
Secret Power
Flame Wheel

Ability: Flash Fire

Jolteon lv39 Bold nature

Shock Wave
Sand Attack
Double Kick
Quick Attack

Ability: Volt Absorb

Blastoise lv46

Bite
Blizzard
Surf
Toxic

Ability: Torrent

I just bought Thunderbolt from the Game Corner, and I don't know if I should teach it to Dragonair/Dragonite or Jolteon.

If needed I can post the stats.

Thanks for your help!

Well, before I get into anything about your movesets, you need to level up this team a lot. Each Pokemon should be in mid 50s - 60s as of now if you want to beat the Elite Four. I didn't even win using a Level 99 Venusaur, so it's very important you level up. The champion's highest-level Pokemon is level 63, and that's about 15 levels above your best guy. Yikes.

So first, I'd say level up. I'll actually let someone else do the movesets, not very good at that.

These would be good movesets for your team in game or against the E4 but you need to have all of them at least Lvl 50+ or you'll need many Max revives and Full restores.

Dragonite
Extreme Speed
Roost
Dragon Claw
EQ


Snorlax
Body Slam
Earthquake
Rest
Sleep talk


Pidgeot
Toxic
Steel Wing
U-Turn
Aerial Ace


Arcanine
Crunch
Flare blitz
Will O wisp
Morning Sun


Jolteon
Thunderbolt
Shadow Ball
Double Kick (Filler) Hidden power (Grass or Ice if poss)
Quick Attack (Filler)


Blastoise
Yawn
Ice beam
Surf
Toxic

Hope this helps.

Good advice and everything, but how do I teach pokemon moves that they don't learn and aren't TMs?

Some of those sets take into account 4th gen moves. This is a 3rd gen team :(

Ignore VDRS, he apparently didn't notice this is for FR, not for DPPt.

Other than leveling-up your Pokemon, your movesets aren't bad for an in-game team at all. One thing I would suggest is to put Return over one of your Flying type moves on Pidgeot, so you have a little more type diversity in there. I'd use your Thunderbolt TM on Jolteon, where it will be able to use it the most effectively. Probably over Sand Attack, as with the lower PP of Thunderbolt, it's nice to have a secondary electric move. Dragonair/Dragonite-wise, when it evolves, a decent moveset could be Outrage/Surf/Earthquake/Fly for in-game, as it nets you decent coverage.
