Don't have more than 2 moves of the same type on a pokemon. And, Hyper Beams are considered bad in general.

Magcargo @ Leftovers
Modest (if you want to rebreed)
- Flamethrower
- Toxic
- Yawn
- Rock Slide

Grumpig @ Leftovers
Careful (Calm when rebreeding for Substitute)
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Fire Punch
- Substitute

Sceptile @ Leftovers
Timid
- Substitute
- Leech Seed
- Leaf Blade
- Thunderpunch

Tentacruel @ Leftovers
Jolly
- Swords Dance
- Sludge Bomb
- Surf / Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam

Hariyama @ Leftovers
Lax (If you want to rebreed)
- Cross Chop
- Rock Slide
- Knock Off
- Counter / Whirlwind

I recommend Flygon as the last pokemon, since you already have a psychic type and Xatu carries many common weaknesses with it.

Flygon @ Leftovers
Adamant
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Fire Blast
- Quick Attack / Screech
After the Elite 4, you can put a Choice Band on it and have either Quick Attack or Iron Tail as your last move.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alakazam @ Lum Berry
Modest
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Fire Punch
- Ice Punch / Thunderpunch

Salamence @ Choice Band
Adamant
- Aerial Ace
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Flamethrower / Fire Blast

Walrein @ Leftovers
Calm (Bold if rebreeding)
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Rest
- Encore / Sleep Talk

Swampert @ Leftovers
Sassy
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Earthquake
- Rest

Blaziken @ Leftovers
Adamant
- Swords Dance / Bulk Up
- Rock Slide
- Sky Uppercut
- Flamethrower

Aggron @ Leftovers
Adamant
- Substitute / Iron Tail
- Focus Punch / Earthquake
- Thunder Wave
- Rock Slide

Thanks for the advice, reason for Hyperbeam is because my Aggron has high defence, special attack, and attack. Defence part is kinda irrelavent. Thanks for the movesets though. Oh! How the doohah do I get rock slide so many times, despite the ones that learn it through lvl up?

Still, Hyper Beam isn't a proper move to use in competitive battle. This is mainly because of the recharging turn where you can do nothing even switching. Maybe you can OHKO every Pokemon that aren't resistant to it, but if during the recharging turn your foe switch in something that can EQ or Surf you?
And also, using EQ/RS/Iron Tail twice has already give a higher damage than hyper beam.

And about rock slide, maybe you need to breed for them. Aggron can get it from Larvitar while Blaziken got it from Numel. Dunno about Salamence. And if you play Emerald, you can get it from the move tutor in the BF.

Rock Slide is Move Tutor only, in Emerald's Battle Frontier, for 48 Battle Points. I believe you can trade, seeing as you have an Alakazam already.

Salamence learns Rock Slide via move tutor.

I rated it. You got any problem with that? At least it could be rated, unlike some of the more stupid teams that get posted here all the time.

That might work, when you are sure that the opponent has an item 100% of the time. This is in-game. Opponents/wild pokemon don't carry Leftovers all the time. I hope that clears up the confusion.

You can use it on a anoying gym leader, so they get choice band and it doesnt really matter what you get just be glad you stuffed up there pokemon then substitute and calm mind until your happy. But this is only if you have the patients to breed trick on Spoink.

I personally am drooling all over the prospect of battling the Battle Frontier for 64BP to trade for a measly Choice Band, and then going back in time to battle the Gym Leaders. Oh, and did I mention that not all gym leaders' pokemon have items attached, so Trick is going to do nuts in-game.

Thank you for your time.

Additionally, once you Trick over the Choice Band, you don't get it back at the end of the battle unless its in Battle Tower/Frontier.
