    Welcome to PC! Unfortunately this belongs within in-game team help, so I'll move it there for further feedback, but first I'll comment on your team.

    Generally, Starmie uses the BoltBeam combination of Ice Beam & Thunderbolt, so just give it the TM Ice Beam and it should be great, since it gives Starmie coverage over things that HydroPump wouldn't normally affect as much (aka dragons).

    Skarmory is usually best used to set-up hazards, whirlwind them away, etc, things like that. Either way, Skamory usually goes with Brave Bird, however, since you want to keep Fly, you can use that as the flying-type attack. Spikes is then to be used with Whirlwind, blowing the opponent away and getting accumulated hazard damage and with the last attack being Roost, while this is something that occurs often in competitive play, it works well in-game because the opponents are usually dumb (usually) and if you're facing Cheren, then spikes can be useful for the Pokemon. Sky Attack wasn't probably the best egg move, but it doesn't matter since you can still make do with what you have.

    For Galvantula, go for Bug Buzz as a stronger STAB than Signal Beam, and luckily if you have Compound Eyes, go for Thunder, if not, then sadly tbolt will do. Generally Energy Ball is pretty useful against things that thunder/bug buzz won't cover. Usually it'd go for Hidden Power in this spot, but you could opt for Volt Switch, giving you a free switch out and avoiding damage.

    Since Nidoking works better specially based, move tutor earth power instead of earthquake, and go for the BoltBeam combination as mentioned earlier (of Ice Beam x Tbolt) since it allows for Nidoking to have better coverage.

    Cradily is not really a major attacker, it's mostly used defensively. It has a variety of different sets it can use, but yes, Earthquake is apart of most of its sets. If you want, have a look here for some different types of supporting sets it can use.

    Weavile needs Night Slash instead of Dark Pulse since it's usually a physical Pokemon. It can generally use Ice Shard or Ice Punch, but since you can't really breed for that you're going to have to stick with Ice Beam, sadly. On the plus side, you can make use of Swords Dance to make Brick Break and Night Slash stronger, but generally Night Slash covers what Shadow Claw would anyway, so the latter isn't really needed.

    Good luck!

      thanks O: i gave starmie ice beam

      i find it annoying that skarmory and cradilly cant really learn many powerful moves, my skarmory is strong in attack , my cradilly is as strong in sp attack as it is in defense so i tend to not worry about cradilys defense much

      do you think grey will have any new moves or things pokemon can learn O:?

        Skarmory's main role is a Physical wall, not so much an attacker. A good moveset for a wall Skar is probably something like this

        Skarm @ Leftovers
        Impish nature
        EV spread: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD

        Stealth Rock
        Whirlwind
        Roost
        Brave Bird

        You can go with Spikes over Stealth Rock...however I favor SR over that. PS: I did get this set from Smogon, it's the Physically Defensive set. I find that Smogon has the best movesets in my opinion.

        Teams can't be made up of only defensive Pokemon, you need to have some attacking specialists too.

        I see a few Bug/Fighting/Electric weakness there, so you need to counter it at least.

        I recommend a Fire-type Pokemon since those Ferrothorns have a 4x weakness to Fire (Fighting is a bit risky cos most Fighting moves make contact, activating Rocky Helmet or Iron Barbs) and they can stop you if you're not prepared.

        I don't know if Flash Cannon is the best thing for Starmie.

        Weavile is pretty frail and has a 4x weakness to Fighting, so I think you should replace it with something that's not too frail.
