Sharpedo can learn all the water HMs. You also get the added benefit of surfing faster, which is very useful. But that's for later in the game.

Tentacool is good, but make sure you get one with Clear Body as Liquid Ooze is nowhere near as useful. You can get Tentacool as soon as you get the first fishing rod in Dewford Town. Gyarados is also good, but you have to put up with Magikrap (intentionally misspelled) until level 20. Its secondary Flying type seems to only be there to make it take 4x damage from Electric as it learns no Flying type moves except Bounce as a tutor move, and that's just a worse version of Fly.

My team is becoming increasing fighting orientated...

Mainly since I found a Machop with No Guard, which I know from experience is very fun when he learns Dynamic Punch.

No Guard Machamp is fantastic, I had one on my Diamond team and he wrecked almost everything. Be warned that No Guard affects your opponent too, so going up against anything with a one hit KO move is suicide because he'll usually go last due to low Speed. Also if you put a No Guard pokémon out front you'll get more wild encounters.

My Diamond team was Infernape, Machamp, Alakazam, Luxray and Garchomp, with Bibarel as an HM slave. Not that I finished Diamond, because everything is so slow and the amount of grinding you need to do is really off-putting. It didn't help that I was trying to get a legit Mew from My Pokémon Ranch at the same time, which requires catching and transferring 1000 pokémon. If I never see the Pastoria Great Marsh again, it'll be too soon.

Hopefully Platinum will be better and I'll probably go for the same team, but that's for after HeartGold which I'll start after finishing off Omega Ruby.

In Soul Silver I think my team was:

Typhlosion
Ampharos
Dragonite
Tyranitar
Pidgeot?
Lugia
Poliwrath
Heracross

I have also had several Pearl teams, can't exactly remember who went where but there we go:
Torterra
Staraptor
Crobat
Gyrados
Palkia
Luxray
Tentacruel
Golem
Machamp

I love Dragonite, reminds me of the dragon boss in Rainbow Islands. It's the main reason I'm playing HeartGold next, because the gift from the Dragon Master is the only way to get a Dratini that knows ExtremeSpeed. Then I can send it to X for breeding stock and hopefully eventually get a shiny ExtremeSpeed Dragonite, which would be the shit. Cool

Well I had two battles last night and got utterly trashed, you have nothing to fear lol.

Not around tonight, but might be tomorrow (aaand the rest of the week lol).

If we can find 2 others we could have some PTC 2v2 matches - they're pretty fun.
