    What do you think of this team? Just for a play-through of Platinum not for competitive online stuff.

    Arcanine: Flare Blitz, Flame Wheel, Crunch, Extremespeed
    Jolteon: Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball, Magnet Rise, Signal Beam
    Gyarados: Waterfall, Dragon Dance, Earthquake, Ice Fang
    Lucario: Aura Sphere, Dragon Pulse, Psychic, Shadow Ball

    Tropius: Flash, Fly, Strength, Defog
    Bibarel: Surf, Rock Smash, Cut, Rock Climb.

    2 special attackers, 2 physical attackers, 2 slaves.
    I have both Flare Blitz and Flame Wheel on Arcanine for killing weaker things without losing health.
    I tried the Jolteon/Gyarados combo on Heartgold and it worked great. If you don't know what it is it's where you switch from Jolteon to Gyarados if you come across a ground Pokemon so you take no damage and have a super effective Pokemon and where you switch from Gyarados to Jolteon when you expect an electric attack so you end up healing Jolteon 25% of max HP.
    Lucario mainly just for type coverage.
    2 HM slaves because... yeah...

    This team covers all types, having at least one move that's super effective against each type. But the only ground type move for the electric types I have is on my Gyarados, who takes 4x damage from electric types. Also Arcanine, Jolteon and Lucario are all weak to ground types, which is bad.

    What do you think of this team? Any suggestions?

        Waterfall is the best move for Gyarados though and I need flash on someone. Physical water type attack with 80 power and a chance to flinch. It's not like I'm not using it on Gyarados just because its a HM.
