I plan on starting my White version over again but I'm tired of using the same Pokemon over and over again so this time I actually planned out four teams that are based around one of the three starters and one team without a starter. I'm not sure which one I should use or if I should make some changes to them for the best. I'm open to any suggestions of swapping out Pokemon or changing of movesets. Here goes:

Team with Snivy as starter:
Spoiler:

Serperior w/Leaf Blade,Return,Coil,Leech Seed
Zebstrika w/Wild Charge,Flame Charge,Return,Thunder Wave
Scrafty(Moxie) w/Hi Jump Kick,Work Up,Crunch,Head Smash
Archeops w/Acrobatics,Stone Edge,Earthquake,Dragon Claw
Beartic w/Icicle Crash,Stone Edge,Surf,Brick Break
Golurk w/Earthquake,Shadow Punch,Heavy Slam,Fly


Team with Oshawott as starter:
Spoiler:

Samurott w/Surf,Ice Beam,Mega Horn,Grass Knot
Chandelure w/Shadow Ball,Flamethrower,Energy Ball,Psychic
Haxorus w/Dragon Dance,Outrage,Earthquake,Brick Break
Mienshao w/Hi Jump Kick,Stone Edge,Acrobatics,Payback
Bisharp w/Swords Dance,Night Slash,Iron Head,Thunder Wave
Braviary(Sheer Force) w/Crush Claw,Super Power,U-Turn,Fly


Team with Tepig as starter:
Spoiler:

Emboar w/Heat Crash,Earthquake,Scald,Wild Charge
Simisage w/Seed Bomb,Acrobatics,Brick Break,Dig
Seismitoad w/Surf,Focus Blast,Earthquake,Sludge Wave
Sigilyph w/Psyshock,Fly,Ice Beam,Shadow Ball
Zoroark w/Night Daze,Focus Blast,Flamethrower,Nasty Plot
Eelektross w/Wild Charge,Acrobatics,Flamethrower,Dragon Claw


Team with no starter:
Spoiler:


Sawk w/Close Combat,Stone Edge,Earthquake,Payback
Leavanny w/Leaf Blade,Swords Dance,X-Scissor,Aerial Ace
Cohagrigus w/Shadow Ball,Will-o-Wisp,Energy Ball,Psychic
Carracosta w/Shell Smash,Earthquake,Stone Edge,Aqua Jet
Swanna w/Fly,Scald,Hurricane,Roost
Hydregion w/Dragon Pulse,Flamethrower,Surf,Focus Blast


I'd like to know which one of these teams are worth using and if I need to make any changes to them to have a successful playthrough.

I would suggest using the one with Tepig as the starter, but I would make the following changes:
Emboar: Replace Wild Charge with Hammer Arm, which it can learn through the move relearner.
Simisage: Replace with Leavanny knowing: Swords Dance, Leaf Blade, X-Scissor, and Shadow Claw.
Seismitoad: Replace Sludge Wave with Rock Slide.
Sigilyph: Replace Psyshock with Psychic. Also, when no longer a constant need, you may want to replace Fly with Air Slash, and just use a Fly slave when necessary.
Zoroark: Replace with one of your Dragon-types, Haxorus or Hydreigon, the movesets you have are fine.
Eelektross: If you're replacing a Dragon-type in, you may want to replace Dragon Claw with Flash Cannon or Brick Break.

That's what I would do based on my personal preferences. Take the advice how you choose, because it's possible to make almost any Pokemon good. I just like to vary my types as much as possible.

    Samurott # Surf/Ice Beam/Megahorn/Grass Knot or Waterfall/Megahorn/Aqua Jet/Swords Dance
    Chandelure @Choice Scarf/Choice Specs # Shadow Ball/Overheat/Energy Ball/Psychic
    Haxorus # Dragon Dance/Outrage/Earthquake/Brick Break
    Mienshao ~ Regenerator # Hi Jump Kick/Stone Edge/U-Turn/Fake Out
    Bisharp # Swords Dance/Night Slash/Iron Head/Thunder Wave
    Braviary ~ Sheer Force # Return/Superpower/U-Turn/Fly --> I actually lied about this lol; Return is better. I really hate nerfing a Pokemon just because you need Fly in-game :(

    Replace Scald, not Wild Charge. Scald sucks on Emboar.
    Zoroark is a good Pokemon, but it's hard to find in-game.
    Ehhhh forget Dragon Claw / Flash Cannon. Brick Break is okay, but I'd just go Volt Switch / U-Turn.
