    I'm not sure whether I should change some of the pokemon or items in the team that I have.
    My Current Team is:
    Skarmory (Impish)
    Item:Quick Claw
    Ability: Sturdy
    Spikes/Roost/Stealth Rock/Whirlwind

    Arcanine (Hardy)
    Item:Charcoal
    Ability: Flash Fire
    Crunch/Hidden Power(Grass)/Flamethrower/Extremespeed

    Snorlax (Brave)
    Item: Leftovers
    Ability: Immunity
    Body Slam/Earthquake/Rest/Sleep Talk

    Milotic (Bold)
    Item: Mystic Water
    Ability: Marvel Scale
    Surf/Ice Beam/Toxic/Recover

    Darkrai (Serious)
    Item: Blackglasses
    Abilty: Bad Dreams
    Night Shade/Dark Pulse/Dream Eater/Dark Void

    Mew (Adament)
    Item: Expert Belt
    Ability: Synchronize
    Psychic/Roost/Me First/Aura Sphere

    I'm currently thinking of replacing mew with rayquaza, and I need ideas on how to improve my team (I'm pretty new to the EVs and IVs stuff since I just recently started building a team)
    Any Suggestions?

      Firstly, you are wasting some of Arcanine's potential. Arcanine is an attack-strong Pokemon, yet you are using a special attack (flamethrower). You need to replace flamethrower with the undoubtedly best attack-type fire move, flare blitz.

      Get this: not only will flare blitz fill more potential with Arcanine (because flare blitz is an attack-type fire move), but flare blitz has both the same accuracy and PP as flamethrower. Here's the big difference: Flare Blitz has an attack power of a whopping 120, while flamethrower has a special attack power of only 95.

      Now, the one drawback is that Arcanine will receive recoil damage. But, that is the only drawback. Honestly, given the rest of the positives of this move switch, you should consider switching, regardless.

        I've actually considered switching Flamethrower to Flare Blitz, however my arcanine has low defense/sp defense, so I'm not really much of a fan of having recoil dealing moves on him. What's more, it's Sp.Att stat is pretty close to it's attack (Att: 132, Sp.Att: 125) so it's actually fine for me to stick to sp.atk based moves

        Hey LittleChiro, I'm just going to move this over to In-Game Team Help, as Rate My Team threads don't belong in Fourth Generation Gaming. If you have any questions regarding Fourth Gen or where to post what, please feel free to ask me!

            Firstly, Darkrai should not have Night Shade, it can use other moves such as Thunderbolt and Ice Beam. Secondly, your Mew's moves don't suit its nature. As Adamant increases Attack and decreases Special Attack, having Psychic and Aura Sphere might be redundant, you can go for a physical moveset that contains Zen Headbutt, U turn or the elemental punches.

                I'd recommend Focus Blast to replace Night Shade. Focus Blast is an excellent coverage move which hits many of the Dark and Steel-types that block Dark Pulse super-effectively.
