I just did some quick changes after winning against her, because I want to have as many of my favourite Pokémons on the team as possible.

The team as of now:

Meganium, level 53 I don't like Meganium. Can anyone come with someone I can have instead of her?
Petal Dance - Should I change this?
Razor Leaf
Body Slam - I feel like I don't have any use of it, and I just got Giga Drain. Should I change them?

Dragonite, level 60

Rock Slide
Extreme Speed
Dragon Rush

Growlithe, level 25 One of my favourite Pokémon, I don't want to change him.
Flame Wheel

Electabuzz, level 15 As Electivire is also one of my favourite Pokémons, I don't want to change this guy either.
Quick Attack
Thunder Shock
Low Kick

Snorlax, level 50 Omnomnom, I want him.

As you can see, I'm still missing a sixth Pokémon, where I consider getting Aggron. Is it possible to get him in HG without trading from another game?

I also got some Pokèmons on the PC, which haven't considered using.

They are:

Togepi, Nidoran, Sudowoodo, Rattata, Slowpoke, Swinub, Golbat, Golem on level 45, Gyrados, Medicham on level 79, Ampharos on level 50, Heracross, Ho-oh on level 48, Pidgeot on level 42 and Sneasel on level 62.

Thanks for every suggestion!
Meganium's movepool is shallow as it is. Just get rid of Razor Leaf.

You could've let Dragonite keep Aqua Tail, or taught it Waterfall, as Water + Dragon have good coverage together. Hate to say it, but you totally wasted the Rock Slide TM on it.

Arcanine is better in Gen V, but Gen IV, it's somewhat decent:
-Flare Blitz
-Thunder Fang
Nature: Adamant/Jolly
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb
(the above set is good for in-game purposes)

Electivire's move pool is huge; take advantage of it. :
-Hidden Power (Ice/Grass)
-Cross Chop
Nature: Mild
EVs: 40 Atk/252 SAtk/216 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Expert Belt

-Ice Punch
-Cross Chop
-Earthquake/Fire Punch
Nature: Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb/Expert Belt

(you'll have to breed for the above sets, though)

Snorlax is best off using physical moves, tbh, in-game and competitively..
