    Hey guys, I'm having some trouble deciding on which Pokemon to keep and use.

    I just beat the 8th gym leader and now I'm on my way to the Pokemon league, but I'm having trouble deciding which 6 pokemon to use. Here are the ones I'm deciding between:

    (If there is a pokemon you think I should get, please tell me.)

    Typhlosion - lv. 47
    Blast Burn
    Quick Attack
    Lava Plume
    Flamethrower

    Ampharos - lv. 47
    Thunder
    Discharge
    Iron Tail
    Focus Punch

    Mamoswine - lv. 47
    Blizzard
    Take Down
    Avalanche
    Earthquake

    Noctowl - lv. 47
    Fly
    Air Cutter
    Zen Headbutt
    Extrasensory

    Gyarados - lv. 47
    Whirlpool
    Hyper Beam
    Hydro Pump
    Ice Fang

    Haunter - lv. 40
    Shadow Ball
    Dark Pulse
    Confuse Ray
    Hypnosis

    The levels dont matter because I can easily train them, but I just need the best team of 6 out of these 8 (or any others you might have in mind), with the best moveset for as many of them as possible.

    Thanks for any help!

    EDIT:
    I trained my team a little but was wondering if I should change any Pokemon. Check the third post for my ideas.

      Well you have a great team there. The only suggestion I would give is to take out Noctowl, and put in togetic. The reason why is I personnaly don't like Noctowl, and I feel as if Togekiss, is one of the greatest Flying Pokemon. The reason why is Togekiss cant take many, hits.

        Thank you for the help Rubix, I appreciate it. However, I'm not sure about putting in Togetic because Noctowl has far better stats.

        Anyway, can you guys help me decide on a team of 6 to use for the Kanto gym leaders?
        The five I have right now are:
        Typhlosion - lv. 47
        Ampharos - lv. 47
        Mamoswine - lv. 47
        Gyarados - lv. 47
        Noctowl - lv. 47

        I'm debating taking out Noctowl and training an Abra (eventually Kadabra/Alakazaam) for my Psychic type, and getting either a Pidgeotto or Dragonite for my Flying type. Any suggestions?

          Togekiss (togetic's evo) has much superior stats as compared to Noctowl. (noctowl is just one of those early route birds that gets weak in the lategame) Also, Serene Grace +thunder wave+ flinching move like Air slash = take down any pokemon.

            Umm, Take out Noctowl, use Togekiss for flying type, then for your physic, use Bronzor, which becomes Bronzong. I believe Alakazaam has the best stats, but Bronzong is a very solid physic pokemon, and being a steel pokemon gives it another advantage. Yes it may give it more weaknesses, but its abilities of Levitate or HeatProof is another huge advantage, either stopping Ground moves or lowering the damage from fire moves.

            Yep, Togekiss is the pokemon I used for the E4 and it helped me out literally for the entire E4

            Noctowl can be useful though. Hypnosis and Dream Eater is a very potent combo.

              Well I finally got around to evolving Togetic to Togekiss and would agree that it has far better stats. However, the moveset for my Togekiss is questionable.
              I also caught a Bronzor so I guess my team is pretty much complete in terms of the Pokemon itself, and now I just have to train the two.
              So, with this being my first Gen IV game, what moves should I give both Togekiss, and eventually Bronzong?

              Thanks for the help guys!

                togekiss-
                air slash
                aura sphere (this and air slash u need move tutor)
                thunderwave
                some special move (eg.psychic, grass knot)

                just remember togekiss is strong in special Att. so shld teach it special moves (not physical ones like fly etc.)

                bronzong-
                psychic
                earthquake
                gyroball

                  Here's my moveset for the two so far:

                  Togekiss - lv. 46
                  Aura Sphere
                  Sky Attack
                  Air Slash
                  Psychic

                  Bronzor - lv. 38
                  Gyroball
                  Iron Defense
                  Extrasensory
                  Confuse Ray

                  Obviously these are still in the making, but am I on the right track?

                  And @manutdrule, is it not viable for Togekiss to have moves like Sky Attack?

                  Thanks for the help guys!
