    I have 9 badges, I obviously plan on getting 16, and then beating Red, etc. But my team is severely underleveled, and because of this, I'm thinking about adding new members to my team and exchanging some old ones out. I'm not sure really, but whatever. Give me some suggestions whether it be leveling up, moves, other additions, etc. Thanks!

    Donphan (Lv. 25) Bashful Nature
    Flail
    Take Down
    Rollout
    Slam

    Typhlosion (Lv. 44) Adamant Nature
    Lava Plume
    Flamethrower
    Quick Attack
    Fire Blast
    * I need some new moves for this guy, 3 fire moves and 1 weak normal move aren't exactly what I want.

    Ho-Oh (Lv. 46) Quirky Nature
    Extrasensory
    Sunny Day
    Fire Blast
    Sacred Fire

    *I don't want to keep Ho-Oh. I only used it for the Pokemon League to get through. I need a suggestion instead of this guy.

    Ampharos (Lv. 47) Bashful Nature
    Discharge
    Thunder
    Focus Blast
    Signal Beam

    *Kind of random moves...

    Gyarados (Lv. 44) Lax Nature
    Hydro Pump
    Dragon Pulse
    Ice Fang
    Waterfall

    I don't really have any other pokemon. I just started playing again after like a year, and was left with this team, haha.

    I have a few options in my PC, I used to not catch many pokemon.
    Dratini, Lv. 13.
    Pidgey, Lv. 4.
    Furret, Lv. 36.
    Swinub, Lv. 23.
    Tentacool, Lv. 25.
    Togepi, Lv. 7.
    Sudowoodo, Lv. 20.

    I can and will be catching more pokemon, but I need two pokemon. I plan on training up Donphan. So this is what I have so far:
    1.Fire type
    2.Ground type
    3.Water/Flying type
    4. Electric type
    5. ?
    6. ?

    Thanks for the help if you can. Any suggestions to make my current pokemon better besides levels, and new pokemon, all would be appreciated.

    Going to move this to the in-game team help section as that's where team advice belongs.

    I'd suggest some different moves for the Donphan; there normal type moves aren't very useful. Earthquake (which iirc it would learn naturally later on) is a must. Maybe some rock type move too?

    Typhlosion's moveset is pretty narrow sadly although say if you don't mind doing some Battle Frontier stuff Thunderpunch via Move Tutor is cool, and it has some useful TMs (EQ, Brick Break, Rock Slide, Solarbeam if you want to have a sun-theme too via Sunny Day, although that wouldn't help Gyarados much). Speaking of Gyarados it would prefer physical moves rather than special; ie Hydro Pump is less useful on it than Waterfall in most circumstances I imagine.

      Thanks for moving, I didn't know where to put it, and now I know!

      My Donphan just learned EQ. It has rollout, but I'm thinking I need to replace it with a move like stone edge or something along the lines of that. I'm going to try to get some stuff on Typhlosion too.

      Thanks.
