    Your options for fully evolved water types in Emerald are:

    Swampert
    Ludicolo
    Pelipper
    Seaking
    Gyarados
    Azumarill
    Tentacruel
    Sharpedo
    Wailord
    Whiscash
    Crawdaunt
    Milotic
    Starmie
    Golduck
    Walrein
    Relicanth
    Corsola
    Lanturn
    Kingdra (requires trading, otherwise use Seadra)
    Huntail
    Gorebyss

    If you ask me, your best options would be:

    Swampert/Whiscash- These guys are pretty sweet options since they are paired up with the ground type, only giving them one weakness (grass). They both get stab on Earthquake and can utilize physical moves pretty well.

    Ludicolo/Tentacruel- These two both get Giga Drain and also have pretty useful type combos. Ludicolo has access to more HP restoration moves such as Leech Seed and Rain Dance (if you have the Rain Dish ability), and Tentacruel has Sludge Bomb.

    Crawdaunt/Sharpedo- These guys both have pretty decent Attack and Sp. Attack, and they both get Crunch. Crawdaunt gets Brick Break, and Sharpedo gets Earthquake. Crawdaunt is slower with higher defense, Sharpedo is faster with much lower defense.

    Lanturn- The Water/Electric type combo along with the Volt Absorb ability is quite useful. It gets stab on Thunderbolt which will come in handy.


    As for the rest... I'll leave that up to you. Here are some facts about the other pokemon I haven't mentioned:
    Starmie gets stab on Psychic.
    Walrein gets stab on Ice Beam.
    Relicanth has Ancient Power and Yawn.
    Seadra/Kingdra learn Dragon Breath as an egg move (breeding with Altaria). But remember, if you want to use Kingdra, that will require trading.

    ^Remember though, that you can't get Slowbro or Slowking in Emerald until you've gotten the national dex.

    Walrein (STAB on Ice Beam, Earthquake)
    Lapras (STAB on Ice Beam; can BoltBeam; believe it has access to Hypnosis as well)
    Tentacruel (Poison is SEfx on Grass)
    Relicanth

    My personal opinion would be:
    SWAMPERT @ Leftovers
    Substitute
    Earthquake
    Counter/Curse
    Focus Punch/Brick Break/Return/Body Slam/Strength (if you are not using an HM slave)

    LANTURN @ Leftovers/Chesto Berry, Volt Absorb, Modest (EV trained in SpAtk)
    Thunderbolt
    Surf
    Thunder Wave/Toxic/Confuse Ray/Protect
    Rest

    STARMIE @ Leftovers, Natural Cure, Timid
    Thunderbolt
    Surf
    Ice Beam/Psychic
    Recover
    (Psychic is a viable option if you would rather save your Ice Beam and have some Fighting/Gengar coverage.)

    LUDICOLO @ Leftovers, Modest or Calm
    Leech Seed
    Giga Drain/Synthesis
    Toxic/Rain Dance/Synthesis
    Surf
    (Obviously, if Rain Dance, then not Synthesis. You can also be incredibly annoying with Rain Dance, Rain Dish, Leech Seed, and Double Team. Just sayin'.)

    One of the following:

    SHARPEDO @ Salac Berry if you can get it, Timid nature, maxed Speed EVs
    Endure
    Flail
    Crunch
    Surf

    RELICANTH @ Choice Band/Leftovers, Rock Head, Adamant nature
    Double Edge/Sleep Talk
    Rock Slide/Sleep Talk
    Earthquake/Sleep Talk
    Rest/Yawn

    And one of the following:

    LAPRAS @ Leftovers, Water Absorb, Bold or Modest
    Rest
    Sleep Talk/Surf
    Thunderbolt
    Ice Beam

    WALREIN @ Leftovers
    Surf
    Earthquake
    Rest
    Sleep Talk/Snore
    (Plays like poor man's Swampert, only not quite as good.)

    or

    MILOTIC @ Leftovers, Bold
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Recover
    Hypnosis
    (Switch into Thunder Wave or Will-o-Wisp and watch as Marvel Scale makes Milotic a very unkillable Loch Ness Monster.)

    Swampert
    - Surf
    - Ice Beam
    - Protect/Roar
    - Earthquake

    or

    Swampert
    - Rock Slide
    - Curse
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Beam/Surf

    The last choice is whether you want STAB or coverage against his only weakness:Grass.

    Walrein
    - Surf
    - Ice Beam
    - Earthquake
    - Encore

    Wailord
    - Surf
    - Ice Beam
    - Earthquake
    - Amnesia/Body Slam

    You're not allowed to ask for a team built for you. You have to think of at least four Pokemon by yourself with movesets. Please read the RMT rules.
