Who would be better for this team, Zebstrika or Emolga. Just for casual, in game, battle with friends play style.

my other pokemon:
-Samurott
-Serperior
-Vanilluxe
-Reuniclus
-Scrafty

Also what would be a good moveset.

zebstrika because A)he is better and B) emolga is weak to ice (like serperior) and rock (like vanilluxe).

Flame Charge, Thunderbolt, Return, Attract/Thunderwave

I'd get Zebstrika, myself. It's a fast Pokemon that would balance the range of Speed stats on your team, and also provides that nice Fire-type coverage in Flame Charge.

It can have the ability Motor Drive to absorb Electric-type attacks and raise Speed, or Sap Sipper to switch in on Grass moves to receive an Attack boost, making it great for switching around on a team.

Emolga's got a sweet typing, but there are next to NO Ground-type attacks in the game after you beat Driftveil's gym, so it's not like Emolga's Flying-typing is doing it any justice, really, except for a Fighting resistance.

Emolga because hes immune to ground moves which is awesome against ground type pokemon. Discharge, Double Team, Poison, and Airial Ace.

Personally, I'd reccomend neither -- Elektross's Leveitate ability negates ground moves just like Emogla's flying type does. Yes, that can be overcome with Gravity, Smack Down, etc, but if your opponent doesn't have those you have no type weaknesses.

You mean smack down?
Yes...  it was 3 in the morning >.>  Editing that...
But there are people that have mold breaker, so I suggest Emolga anyway, it has great speed and has the moves to get out of the battle when needed.

I'd say emolga, but if you can get your hands on a joltik/galvantula (chargestone cave) those are beast

zebstrika, it has a good speed and better attack than emolga, and emolga have 2 weakness but zebstrika only have 1 weakness. but i recommend you to have elektross rather than emolga or zebstrika.
