This is my tentative FireRed team.

Blastoise
Bold nature
Surf
Ice Beam
Toxic
Rest

Charizard
Hasty nature
Flamethrower
Aerial Ace
Dragon Claw
Substitute

Alakazam
Modest/Timid nature
Psychic
Shock Wave
Calm Mind
Recover

Snorlax
Return/Double Edge
Brick Break
Shadow Ball
Yawn

For the last two slots, I'm going to use an electric and a ground type. For electric, it's a toss-up between Raichu and Jolteon, and for ground, it's between Dugtrio and Rhydon. Please give advice.

Alakasam wants the punches instead of Shock Wave and for Snoralx use this

Careful/Sassy
Body Slam
Curse
Shadow Ball/Earthquake
Rest

I would use the punches but Shock Wave is the best I could come up with for use before I beat the Elite Four.

This team is for beating the E4. I can't get a Donphan until after.

You can't get a lot of those moves until after you beat the Elite 4 though.

Also, use Rhydon, you need a Normal/Flying resist and you already have its Grass/Water weakness covered.

Rhydon

-Swords Dance

I know, I'm trying to use pre-E4 moves. I'll worry about expanded movesets once I get to that point.

So is Jolts definitely better than Raichu?

Thanks a lot for the ideas.

I'm also trying to make a good Emerald team (forgive my ADHD), and need some suggestions. This is the team so far.

Sceptile
Swampert
Machamp
Starmie

I need some good defensive Pokemon to complement these. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Swampert's a pretty decent bulky water (water types with high defenses to sponge attacks, especially physical attacks) to begin with. A good special wall complements the team pretty nicely.
