    Dragonite doesn't have the best Flying attacks, other than Hurricane in generation five, so I think you're better off putting something like Roost or Earthquake in that spot, really. Also since you're using Dragon Dance, you need to instead use Dragon Claw, because that's a physical attack and Dragonite's special stats kinda suck in comparison. :( Also, over Fly you could opt to use Thunder Wave, which could be of use when setting up Dragon Dance.

    On Skarmory, you're better off with something like Drill Peck or Brave Bird - it's still somewhat strong and Steel isn't really your beneficial STAB here, while the flying attacks can come in handy more than Fly can - since Fly is only used for HM uses, after all. Typhlosion is a little too mixed but it's hard to really change it around in-game, so for what you have, it's fine. Lapras and Tyranitar are fine.

    I'd suggest replacing Snorlax with a strong ground type, and lead with that against Pikachu. While Tyranitar is strong, you really want something that can't really be hurt at all by Pikachu, while setting up Steath Rock (this'll help you against Charizard) and using Skarmory as a lead is basically suicide for it against Pikachu. :( tbh, I'd probably go for Hippowdon because it has a great attack stat, Pikachu can do nothing at all to it and it can set up Stealth Rock for you.

    Either way, that's about all I can think of right now, but good luck!

      Thanks for a good reply, i dont really have a paticular lead pokemon, but i know skarmory would be a terrible choice against pikachu. Dragonite learns dragon claw soon i think, and fly needs to be replaced, but ive used the roost tm on Skarmory. I was thinking fire or thunder punch? But i dont know where the tms for these are. Thanks for the advice, I'll probably get a ground type.
