Hi guys, I'm new to pokecommunity, so if I'm posting this in the wrong place, 1000 apologies.

I've had a Galvantula on my team for awhile now, and it has served me well. I do find its SpAttack a wee bit low though. Anyways. Recently I've been looking at Yanmega's. Which would be the better pokemon? Head to head, I know Galvantula has the better chanceo f winning. (Stab thunderbolt, higher speed.) But overall, which would be better? And would it be possible to ask for movesets?

BTW: My Galvantula has a Timid nature.

I would have went with a Galvantula that had Hasty nature. Since Galvantula is a part Bug-type, which mostly consists of physical attacks, you would not want to mess with its attack. It is designed to be an attacker anyway.
Yanmega has higher stats all around. It ha a higher HP, Def, SpA, but particularly low SpD. Its ability Speed Boots compensates for its lower Speed. A Sassy nature Yanmega would be good since Speed Boots would neutralize the decreased Speed while its SpD would increase.
Overall, I think Yanmega is a better choice since it is less vulnerable than Galvantula. You can still get the STAB boots with moves such as Bug Buzz. I hope this helps a little!

Given that this is not a full team, I would like to refer you to the In-Game Team Questions (and Incomplete Team Help) thread. Perhaps try taking the suggestions above, and coming back to the thread I mentioned just now for more pointers, or feel free to make a thread once your team is complete, thank you!
