This is my current team in ruby. I am just about to try the league challenge but would really appreciate some advice about my team first eg. move changes or pokemon changes etc.

1. blazikin

} blaze kick
} rock smash (I would probably delete this after completing victory road)
} overheat
} fireblast

(if anyone suggests flamethrower as a move, could you please tell me how/where to get it, same with any other moves... unless ofcourse they are obviously tms found in the game)

2. Sealo (should I evolve it?)

} hail
} body slam
} aurora beam
} surf

3. gardevoir

} calm mind
} confusion
} psychic
} imprison

4. Flygon (not sure whether to replace this with a sandslash with earthquake)

} fly
} hyperbeam
} dragonbreath
} crunch

5. breloom

} sky uppercut
} bullet seed
} giga drain
} leech seed

6. Raichu

} thunderbolt
} shock wave
} thunder
} strength (was going to replace this, not sure what with though...)

I also have a sharpedo, seadra, wailord, mightyena and absol raised to similar levels, if any of those would be best to replace any of the above...

That team alone can take you past the Elite 4. But I'm going to suggest some moves that might be a little tricky to get. "Move Relearner moves" are level-up moves.

Blaziken
- Bulk Up (Move Relearner)
- Rock Slide (Egg Move, breed with Camerupt)
- Sky Uppercut (Move Relearner)
- Flamethrower (Fire Blast can be used here, but TM35 Flamethrower has more accuracy. Found at Mauville Game Corner, 4000 coins)

Walrein
- Ice Beam (TM13, Mauville Game corner, 4000 coins)
- Encore (Move Relearner)
- Surf
- Rest (Move Relearner)

Gardevoir
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Thunderbolt (TM24, Mauville Game Corner, 4000 coins)
- Hypnosis (Move Relearner)

Flygon
- Screech (Move Relearner)
- Earthquake (TM26)
- Rock Slide (TM23)
- Fire Blast (Buy at Lilycove Dept Store)

Breloom
- Spore (Don't evolve Shroomish till lv 54, where it learns Spore)
- Focus Punch (TM01)
- Sky Uppercut
- Sludge Bomb (TM36)

Raichu
- Thunderbolt
- Iron Tail
- Thunder Wave
- Encore
sigh...Raichu's not very good, I can't even think of a proper moveset for it. I'd suggest you dump it as soon as you beat the Elite Four. Your extra pokemon are also quite bad, to be honest.

Thanks for your help crudent! hmm... maybe I'll look at swapping raichu for a different type electric pokemon... any suggestions anyone?

Yup, this looks quite good.

Manectric
- Thunderbolt (TM24)
- Crunch (Breed with Mawile or Seviper)
- Roar
- Thunder Wave

Flygon can't get Rock Slide through TM 23 since it teaches Iron Tail.

Whoops, sorry! I meant Iron Tail...lol me.

flamethrower

okay

(trust me on blaziken)

for blaziken you should get

hyper beam(lilycove department store)
flamethrower(mauvile game corner tm35 8000$)
overheat
sky uppercut(level up)

sealeo... definitly evolve it. walrein is way tougher to kill and has better defense + attack

hail
surf
ice beam(mauville game corner tm13 8000$)

gardevoir is all good...

breloom

leech sseed
brick break(sootopolis city)
giga drain
sky uppercut

keep flygon, youll need vs drake its moves are fine

i suggest you replace your raichu with a milotic, they are extremely hard to get but definely worth it

milotic (if you get it)
ice beam
recover
surf
hydro pump

I'll be as brief as possible.

1) No Hyper Beams, pointless waste of turns
2) No 2 same type attacking moves on a pokemon
