    Hi, people!
    I'm having trouble beating the third gym leader in Pokemon Emerald.
    Here's my team:

    Combusken Level 26
    Double Kick
    Peck
    Focus Energy
    Ember
    No Item

    Aron Level 20
    Metal Claw
    Iron Defense
    Mud-slap
    Headbutt
    Soft Sand

    Lombre Level 24
    Astonish
    Fake Out
    Absorb
    Nature Power
    No Item

    Ralts Level 20
    Growl
    Confusion
    Double Team
    Teleport
    No Item

    Gulpin Level 20
    Pound
    Amnesia
    Poison Gas
    Sludge
    No Item

    Geodude Level 7 (Training it, due to Rock/Ground typing)
    Tackle
    Defense Curl
    Mud Sport
    --
    No Item

    I need suggestions. Is using a Geodude to avoid Electric damage wise? Should I evolve my Ralts? Should I add some other Pokemon? Help me please.

      Leveling up your Geodude is easily your best bet. Get it to at least Lv. 16 (when it learns Magnitude) and you'll most likely be set. The only thing you'd have to worry about is confusion for Supersonics and Magneton's Sonicboom, but that'd be easy to heal off since you know it's always going to do 20. Plus you have Combusken to come in on Magneton and get some nice super-effective damage off if Geodude gets into troube. Hope this helps :)

        Thanks. I managed to get to Flannery (going to fight her next), and my Graveler is now tied for second-strongest with my Combusken.

        Now my only question is:
        Should I evolve me Ralts? It's level 24, fyi.

            I want it to learn a few moves earlier, so it's staying a Ralts.
            Also, it's Male, so...
            Yeah.
